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

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[...]

Mask Monday: Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Masque

*PR Sample/Aff. links* A while ago, I posted my reviews of the two other Image Skincare masques - the Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque here and the Ormedic Balancing Gel Masque here.  I have one final Image masque to tell you about, and I've definitely saved the best until last.  The Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Masque is a beautiful treat for the skin that does a little bit of everything, providing a light exfoliation, a hydrating tre[...]

Too Faced Pretty Mess

Too Faced Pretty Mess Collection

[lookbook id="25557" show-legend="false" show-desc="true" show-reveal="true"] The Too Faced Pretty Mess collection is fun and cheeky set of products formed as a collaboration with Erika Jayne.  I don't actually know who Erika Jayne is, but she looks fabulous! The Pretty Mess collection contains a small selection of beautifying goodies that are unashamedly girly and a little bit naughty, whilst still maintaining that universal appeal that To[...]

Bioeffect OSA Water Mist

Bioeffect OSA Water Mist

[lookbook id="25551" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Sample/Gifted/Aff. links* I think hydrating mists are one of those luxury skincare items that aren't necessarily essential to your average skincare routine, but the right one can be such a joy to use, that I always tend to have several on the go for various needs; I love to use them after a shower/bath, after a mask, when using a facial oil and more recently, after an[...]


Amazing Vitamin C Serums for all Skin Types

[lookbook id="25507" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Samples/Gifted/Aff. Links* My skin has come along so much over the past 6 months or so, and it has an actual glow to it, even when make-up free, which I believe is heavily due to my committed use of a good quality Vitamin C Serum each morning. With that in mind, I thought I'd put together a list of the ones I've tried and actually liked (I've tried loads, but these are[...]

Chantecaille Spring 2019 Makeup Launches – Polar Ice Collection

*PR Samples/Affiliate Links* Chantecaille are the WORST for my bank balance as I literally want everything they make, regardless of whether it would actually suit me or not.  The packaging is always so pretty, the shades are flattering and enticing and the brand ethos is incredibly appealing, with each collection shining a light on a charitable cause that often has links to animal welfare, so my heart is completely on board with all things Chantec[...]

Too Faced Born This Way – New Pale Shades

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation is one of those products that people really rave about, so when I was sent my first bottle in the Ivory shade, I couldn't wait to get it on my face.  As regular readers will likely know, I'm pretty pale (paler than you would expect - MUAs always start with darker shades and are always surprised by how fair they have to go to get a good match!) and there are many brands that don't go pale enough for me (*cough* N[...]

New Launches from tarte at QVC UK

Every few months we got a little lot of newness from tarte at QVC UK, and it's always something to look forward to as the edited collection is usually a total joy, with the current new arrivals proving to be no exception.  There are six new things to check-out, five of which I have here.  The only one I don't have is the Limited Edition Maracaju Gold Facial Oil, which appears to be the old style Maracaju oil just with added gold flakes.  You ca[...]

OPI Peru Collection

The OPI Peru Collection is absolutely gorgeous.  It's the most perfect collection of fun and colourful shades that are so perfect for transitioning nails into more Autumnal colours.  As is usually the case with any OPI collection, there is something for everyone; there are 12 great shades with a couple of nudes, some pops of pink and purple, a stunning, muted blue and finally four takes on vampy reds - even the reds alone have something for ever[...]
