Mask Monday: Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

Apologies for the rubbish picture quality – I haven’t quite nailed taking pictures of anything even remotely reflective yet, as you can see! I’ve waxed lyrical about the amazing Clinique Moisture Surge range which includes the Moisture Surge Overnight Mask – you see brands? That’s…

Birchbox March 2015

Birchbox March 2015 is an interesting one, as it’s the first (that I can recall) box that’s allowing you to specify which sample you’d like.  It’s also a collaboration with uber-posh homeware champions, Habitat. There’s just one make-up item in the March 2015 Birchbox and the…

Bourjois Spring 2015

The Spring 2015 launches from Bourjois are absolutely wonderful, with something to cover all the main beauty elements; there are new lip shades, new eye crayons and liners and a new face powder too. I’ll start with the most exciting arrival which is the new…

Too Faced Selfie Powders

I just saw this on Temptalia here and I had to share it with you – the Too Faced Selfie Powder palette.  It’s a bit of a gimmick, but I’m soooo getting it when it arrives in the UK.  The idea is that there are…

Bobbi Brown Hot Collection Sheer Lip Colors

Now we come to my favourites from the Bobbi Brown Hot Collection, which are the Sheer Lip Colors.  I mentioned in my intro post here that I hadn’t tried any of the existing Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colors which is very strange considering just how much…

Quick Pick Tuesday: Pixi Glow Mist

The Pixi Glow Mist promises an “all over glow for a radiant, dewy effect” and that is exactly what it delivers – FINALLY something simple and easy to use that gives good glow! I am a massive fan of facial sprays as I find them…

Bobbi Brown Hot Collection Cheek Palette in Pink

I’m still brimming with excitement over the Bobbi Brown Hot Collection, and having had a good play with the products I have, the joy is showing no signs of subsiding.  Check out my intro post here to find out more about the full collection as…

Mask Monday: Argan+ Lift & Renew Clay Mask

My mum is crazy for the Argan+ Body Butter and I really loved their Rose body wash too, so I couldn’t wait to try this mask from Argan+, the Lift & Renew Clay Mask, which promises a bevvy of benefits such as intense moisturising, elasticity boosting…

Illamasqua Skin Base and Rich Liquid Foundations

I tried the Illamasqua Skin Base a few years ago and didn’t get on with it at all, but looking back, I think this was mostly because I didn’t have the right colour plus I didn’t know how to prep skin.  The main issue I…

Ren Rosa Centifolia No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm

I’m yet to try anything from Ren that I haven’t loved.  The Ren Rosa Centifolia range is especially lovely and I’m well over half way through the Rosa Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser (review here) which is one of the most calming and balancing cleansers I…

Memebox Special #42

I really do think that 2015 will be the year when we see Korean beauty have an even bigger influence on new arrivals and releases, and well-deservedly too, since Korean beauty is impressive, innovative, wonderfully presented and packed full of great things that are fun…

Penhaligon’s Ostara

Penhaligon’s are one of those brands that I find very exciting as they’re fragrances are always so interesting and complex, yet you can almost always find something wonderful in them and feel comfortable pushing your usual scent boundaries to try something a little different.  Having…

Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel in Awe

I’m so into brows lately, partly because I’ve finally got the hang of how to do a decent brow, and partly also because I attended a masterclass with Illamasqua a few weeks ago that further fueled the fire.  You can do a whole face of…

Bobbi Brown Hot Collection

I am extremely excited about the launch of the Bobbi Brown Hot Collection as it’s full of gloriously bright pops of colour in a choice of finishes that all make me lust for Summer.  It’s inspired by Florida which is the hometown of brand face…
