Kiko Pop Revolution

I've decided I'm going to treat myself to some Kiko bits soon, as each time I visit their site, I'm consumed with lust for all their beautiful make-up.  The Kiko Pop Revolution is another classic collection from Kiko, themed around what's clearly a 60's/early 70's vibe that makes my make-up loving heart squeal with joy - the promo image is of a girl with OTT liner, nude lips and big hair and it just makes me bitter and jealous that I never got to[...]

New Launches from Real Techniques (Summer 2019)

I received some lovely new Real Techniques launches a couple of months ago, so I'm a little late to the party with sharing my review; knowing Real Techniques there'll be a load more new launches already (and maybe their Christmas launches - gotta love the RT Christmas gifts!) so whilst these are all quite new releases, I've listed them as part of the Summer 2019 line-up just in case.  There's a lot, and lots of pictures to go with it, so settle i[...]

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation

Disclaimer: PR Sample - I have not been paid for this feature. I'm slightly horrified that it's coming up to three weeks without a blog post from me, but my Little Man has been through a series of horrifying infections (literally one after the other) so it's been a trying time and I'm very excited to be blogging again today, especially since it's to share with you my thoughts on the new Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation - this is a post[...]

IT Cosmetics Limited Edition IT Girl Beauty Book 2019

Other than being a bit of a nightmare to photograph when fully extended (a priority I can't imagine tops the list of many people...) the IT Cosmetics IT Girl Beauty Book is, I feel, about as close as you can get to being the perfect palette.  Not only is it solid and really well-made, it contains a little bit of everything that you might need to perfect, enhance, touch-up and improve, all of which comes housed in a perfectly-sized, very travel-fr[...]

Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid Foundation Review

It is like the season of the foundation right now, as there are soooo many new launches, many of which are great and some of which I'll be sharing with you very soon, but I wanted to kick things off with the fantastic Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid foundation, because it really is a superstar product that you need to get your hands on ASAP. The Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid definitely sounds like an anti-ageing product, which is a shame,[...]

Kiko Sicilian Notes Collection

Kiko are amazing at creating make-up that really makes you stop and stare.  The Kiko Sicilian Notes Collection is just so pretty and covetable, it's the sort of thing you want to not use and just post loads of pics of it on Instagram! As with all Kiko collections, Sicilian Notes is jam-packed with goodies with a bit of everything to suit all tastes: there are bronzers, blushers, a new foundation (I very much want it) as well as some surprising ad[...]

IT Cosmetics New Launches at QVC UK

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  I'll be honest, now I'm in my 9th year of blogging, there are very few brands that get me particularly excited (although there are, thankfully, still a few!) but IT Cosmetics is definitely a brand that I keep a very close eye on, mostly because their products are just so fantastically reliable.  They have some of the best eyeshadow formulas I've ever tried, some of[...]

Palette Love: Beauty Bakerie Game of Cones

There's a lot to love about the Beauty Bakerie Game of Cones palette...not just the awesome name, but the mix of fun, yet surprisingly wearable, shades that provide lots of colour and lots of shimmer, making this the sort of palette that's handy to have in your collection for times when you fancy a bit more pizzazz. The Beauty Bakerie Game of Cones contains 12 shades in total, all of which have names that you might associate with Game of Th[...]

MUA Pro Base Long Wear Matte Finish Foundation

I usually focus on foundations that provide a bit of glow, and very rarely allow anything mattifying into my routine as my skin can look really dry under a matte finish, but the MUA Pro Base Long Wear Matte Finish Foundation has been getting a lot of wear recently as the hot weather has resulted in an often shiny face that has actually benefited from a matte foundation. The first big surprise from the MUA Pro Base Long Wear Matte Finish Fou[...]

Beauty Pie Triple Beauty Good Lighting Luminous Blush Trio

I might as well rename my blog Beauty Pie Geek at this rate, since I seem to be featuring Beauty Pie more regularly than any other brand at the moment, but in my defence, Beauty Pie have released some crackers recently, and I think my favourite of all has to be the new Beauty Pie Triple Beauty Good Lighting Luminous Blush Trio, even though it has an inexplicably long name, but there you go. The Beauty Pie Triple Beauty Good Lighting Luminou[...]

Avon Mark Epic Lip Powders

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  More often than not, I reach for the balmiest of lip products, especially in the warmer weather when I hate the feeling of anything heavy on my face, so it's all light and creamy textures that involve very little effort.  Matte lips are a really tricky product to get right, which is why I mostly avoid them as I find matte lipstick hard to wear - I'm someone who[...]
