Fragrance Friday: Lancome Idole

Disclaimer: PR Sample  - I have not been paid for this feature.  I have spent the last 24 hours obsessing over the new fragrance, Lancome Idole, because it is just one of those perfumes that I know I'm going to use right up until the very last drop! I used to post about fragrances regularly as part of my Fragrance Friday series, but other than a quick intro to a new collection, I haven't included any new fragrances on the blog this year because I[...]

Tropic Colour Palette – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  You may remember, way back in April, I shared my initial thoughts on the very exciting new make-up range from Tropic (check out my post here) and the launch I was most excited about was the Tropic Colour Palette, which is a fully-customisable palette that really does offer you the opportunity to pack almost every make-up need into a single palette; we're talking blus[...]

AquaGold Facial at Adonia Medical Clinic

When was the last time I reviewed a facial treatment? I can't believe how long it's been, but honestly, I think it's because my skin is behaving so well recently (please don't let this be "famous last words...") that I haven't really felt the need to try any new treatments.  Having said that, there are definitely a chosen few that I've read about and really fancied, one of which is the AquaGold Facial which I was kindly invited to try at the Adon[...]

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  Ready yourselves for a lengthy post as I have lots to show you in the new Cosmetics a la Carte Eye Beach Glow Collection, plus I always tend to ramble on about my love for CALC because I just find them utterly charming; if you're in London and happen to be near their Chelsea boutique then I really recommend paying them a visit, either to have a browse of their full c[...]

Pur Pro X Etienne Ortega Eyeshadow Palette

I've dabbled with Pur makeup on and off for years, so I'm definitely familiar with the brand, but it seems over the past couple of years it's taken a new direction that I really like; the products just seem a lot more trendy, the vibe of the brand seems much more upbeat and there are a lot of lustworthy launches on their main page.  Today I wanted to show you the amazing Pur Pro X Etienne Ortega Eyeshadow Palette, because it really is fantastic.[...]

QVC UK TSV: Elemis Reveal Radiant Skin Collection

There have been some incredible Elemis QVC UK TSVs over the last couple of years, but I think this one, the Elemis Reveal Radiant Skin Collection, is my favourite so far.  Six brilliant and iconic Elemis products, all of which are full-sized apart from one - Elemis TSVs always go quickly, but I think this will be one of those that flies out of stock, so ready yourself! I really am so excited about these products as I think they're a great[...]

Foundation Files: Chantecaille Future Skin Oil-Free Foundation

*PR Sample/Aff. Links* [lookbook id="25890" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] The Chantecaille Future Skin Oil-Free Foundation is a product I've had my eye on for a while as it sounds and looks quite unlike anything else I have in my collection.  Promising lightweight, adjustable coverage in a comfortable and light-reflecting gel formula, this is one of those products that quickly became cult for very good reason. Fo[...]

Origins Blooming Sheer Lip Balms

*PR Sample/Aff. Links* [lookbook id="25877" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] The Origins Blooming Sheer Lip Balms are a brilliant new take on the traditional tinted lip balm, with a little bit of a twist.  I would say these are more like incredibly hydrating lipsticks, as the pigmentation is really decent (and very buildable) and the wear is surprisingly good for a product that's so hydrating.  There's also a really good[...]

Foundation Files: Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF15

[lookbook id="25785" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Sample/Gifted/Aff. Links* As promised and further to my post on the new Bobbi Brown Foundation extension shades, here's a full review of the Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF15, which is one of the two Bobbi Brown Foundations (the other being the Skin Foundation Stick) now available in an impressive 43 shades.  I was matched to the shade Sand which[...]

Bobbi Brown Foundation Extension Shades

A few weeks ago I popped along to the Bobbi Brown Pro Studio on Poland Street (well worth a visit if you fancy a splurge) to find out more about the extension shades that have been added to two of the most popular Bobbi Brown foundations: the Skin Foundation Stick and the Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF15, both of which now have a staggering 43 shades each, which is mega and particularly fabulous if you really struggle to get that perfect[...]

Botanicals Cleanse Melts

[lookbook id="25681" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Samples/Gifted/Aff. Links* I wouldn't say Botanicals are a huge brand that you see absolutely everywhere, but they've certainly built themselves a reputation so that you regularly see people raving about their products on social media.  Therefore, I was excited to get my hands on their cult Cleanse Melts.  There are currently two Botanicals Cleanse Melts available, N[...]
