Sisley Phyto-Lip Delight

Sisley make some of the prettiest products, that are always enticingly named and have that effortlessly chic vibe that French beauty lines always nail so well.  The Sisley Phyto-Lip Delights are pretty much as you'd expect; gorgeous to look at, lovely on the lips, whilst providing a good dose of hydration too. The Sisley Phyto-Lip Delights come in three colours so far; #cool, #pretty and #sweet.  #cool is a peachy, milky nude, #pretty i[...]

Palette Love: Blank Canvas Cosmetics Master Series, Palette One

It is the year of the palette in 2016 as there have been so many amazing and exciting palette releases (most of which, in honesty, came from Urban Decay) with literally something for everyone, but the nudes and neutrals fans have been especially catered for, with a good example of that being the Palette One from the Blank Canvas Cosmetics Master Series. Palette One is a collection of 12, mostly warm, shades of various takes on nudes, with a[...]

Five Things I Love: August 2016

I'll join in with the bemusement that everyone appears to be feeling and say: I CANNOT BELIEVE IT'S SEPTEMBER! How did that happen? How is it time to start thinking about Christmas again? Crazy! I thought it was time for a Love List as I haven't done one for a little while, so here are five things I thoroughly enjoyed using during August. I've mentioned the Skinceuticals Phyto Corrective Gel, which is a lovely light serum that soothes and g[...]

GOSH Xtreme Liquid Gel Eyeliners

You'll have to excuse me as I'm having some camera issues at the moment, so a few of my posts will contain slightly off images, such as the swatch picture in today's post - sorry about that! The GOSH Xtreme Liquid Gel Eyeliners are causing quite a storm as they're available in a great selection of colours in a very easy to use format. The liner nibs are soft, thin sponges that come to a point, making application a breeze as you can achieve[...]

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 Bourjois Colorband 2-in-1 Eyeshadow and Liners.  There are six shades to launch that are mostly neutral leaning, but the Mauve Baroque shade is a lovely purpley nude that I personally r[...]

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 three different coloured setting powders that will give you the finish of your favourite Instagram filter.  Whether this is actually achievable or not remains to be seen, but I do love a good setting powder, especially one that's tinted o[...]

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 extremely useful; not only for skincare and for use in at-home facials, but arguably more importantly, for make-up setting.  As I have tricky skin, I wear a heavy base that I set in place with powder that can often look a l[...]

Boots #LetsFeelLikeNew Haul

The latest Boots campaign is designed to encourage us to embrace the excitement we get from a new beauty product.  As a hardcore beauty obsessive, I know this feeling all too well and after almost 4 years of blogging, I still get it nearly every day.  A good day for me is when I have lots of make-up to sit down and play with and as there are sooo many new launches at the moment, I'm in my element! Last week I was taken to visit the Boots[...]

Prefer me to start talking normally? Starting to lose interest in this post? Okay I'll stop.  There are a few beauty deals and steals worth checking out, so I thought I'd share. The first I didn't bother posting about yesterday as usually by the time[...]

B. Vibrant Lip & Cheek Colour in Alecia and Prom

B. launched in Superdrug to considerable fanfare due to innovative formulas and well edited colours that punched far above their mid-range price point.  I missed out on the B. love due to my lack of local access to Superdrug, so I've only really had a chance to experience the brand quite recently.  I was sent a lovely bag of goodies which included two of the B. Vibrant Lip & Cheek Colours and I have to say, even though I acknowledged them a[...]

InPost #ShareTheBeauty Pass the Parcel

When InPost got in touch with me to see if I'd be interested in spending £200 on beauty products to send to another beauty blogger, whilst also having a beauty blogger spend the same amount on me, I had to do it really, didn't I? I quickly realised that I take just as much pleasure from buying make-up for other people as I do from buying it for myself, so it seems I just like to buy make-up! I was given Hayley at Tea Party Beauty to buy for, s[...]
