Current Beauty Steals

There are a few promotional campaigns happening which I thought you might want to be aware of, since there are some pretty fab savings to be found on some stonking brands...just call me your Enabler. Love Make-Up Love Make-Up have a mega sale on with some huge savings on some pretty tricky to find brands, so if you're a real beauty aficionado then this is where you should head for brands such as yaby, NYX, Becca, OCC and Lime Crime.  There are[...]

GOSH Smokey Eye Liners

Here we have a quick look at what is probably my favourite part of GOSH's AW13 collection, the Smokey Eye Liners.  GOSH Smokey Eye liners are available in four shades: 01 Smokey Black, 02 Smokey Brown, 03 Smokey Plum and 04 Smokey Blue.  I zoned straight in on the Smokey Plum variant and it''s interesting how it actually works a lot better on the eyes than it does in the swatch below. GOSH have got the balance just right with these smokey[...]

NuBo Equalaser Blemish Control

I'm in a conflict at the moment as I'm thrilled that we seem to be at a point in the beauty world where there are loads of awesome new releases aimed at blemish-prone skin that aren't just glorified Benzyl Peroxide products laced with lots of alcohol, but I'm annoyed that I can't really try any of them as the majority are making full use of the benefits of salicylic acid, which I can't use when pregnant.  Hmph.  Still, only just over three months to[...]

Smashbox Autumn 2013: Fade to Black Collection

I'm developing a bit of a crush on Smashbox, as I've only recently started dabbling with their products, but several of them have immediately before firm, everyday favourites, such as Brow Tech and the Halo Blush - more on those later! I've now experienced two of the Smashbox collections, and what's impressed me each time is how they're a brand who don't like to bombard their customers with lots  of new products, and instead tend to carefully edi[...]

Estee Lauder Pure Colour The Metallics Collection

At the end of this month, a mega collection of metallics launch exclusively at Harvey Nichols and there is bound to be something to keep everyone happy in the vast and impressive Estee Lauder Pure Colour The Metallics.  I love, love, love metallics in the summer; I just think they're the perfect finish to work poolside as they're easy to apply, blend down like a dream and also give that glossy, shimmery finish that works so well with a light bit[...]

NOTD: Nails Inc Mali-Woo-Woo

To celebrate the arrival of the Malibutique (a tour of a popup pampering shop courtesy of Malibu - more info here), Malibu Rum collaborated with Nails Inc to create a bespoke shade, aptly named Mali-Woo-Woo which is what I'm currently wearing and enjoying as a wonderfully bright shade to compliment our equally bright weather! Mali-Woo-Woo is a pretty standard fuschia shade that isn't going to break any ground with new colour creation, but is a[...]

Smashbox Photo Finish More Than Primer Blemish Control

For years I've thought how great it would be if there existed a product designed for problem skins, that acted as a barrier between make-up and skin, that allowed skin to heal under the make-up, rather than whenever the make-up was removed.  It appears Smashbox were thinking the same thing, as they've created this nifty hybrid skincare/make-up product with that exact intention in mind. The bods at Smashbox appear to be primer obsessed, as this S[...]

Quick Pick Tuesday: Girlz Nailz Princess Rock Nail Wraps

I was recently sent a selection of nail wraps from Girlz Nailz, and if you're a wrap fan then I strongly recommend checking them out as they've got a massive array of designs and are very reasonably priced.  They also come in packs of 22 which, in theory, allows for full hand and toe application; the toe ones are more squared to ensure a better fit. I didn't get on too well with these for two reasons: firstly, I have big fingers and I foun[...]

New Benefit Rockateur Cheek Powder

We all love a bit of Benefit, but I don't think any new release from the cult Californian brand gets as much excitement as a new cheek powder.  Certainly their Dandelion is every pale girl's dream come true, and Hoola is one of my ultimate bronzing friends as it's completely matte, yet it avoids that grubby look that often comes with matte bronzing powders. News arrived today that there's a new Benefit Cheek Powder in town that goes by the name of[...]

It's been a seriously busy week, but I've decided I only ever want to upload nine pictures for my weekly updates, although that could well change in the future! 'Tis another busy week this coming week, so expect lots more Instagram updates.  If you're not following me already, please head here and say hello!   Top Row Glamglow Brightmud! A mask for the eyes from the famous Glamglowers, review coming soon.  Sunday night is pizza night.[...]
