Zoeva Summer Strobe Spectrum Powder Palette

Zoeva Summer Strobe Spectrum Powder Palette

[lookbook id="25797" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Sample/Gifted/Aff. Links* I was sent the Zoeva Summer Strobe Spectrum Powder Palette as a surprise and I'm really glad I was, as it's not the sort of colourway I would choose for myself, but I absolutely love it! I always favour cool-tones even though I'm quite neutral, so I can get away with either, but I have to say, the warmer tones in this beautiful highlighter pal[...]


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[...]


OPI Tokyo Collection

[lookbook id="25709" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] I was hugely excited when I first got wind of the OP Tokyo Collection, as I think Tokyo is such a great inspiration for a nail edit - when thinking of Tokyo I think of brights, acids, neons and lots and lots of colour! The OPI Tokyo is fun, bright very heavy on the pinks, so if you're like me and really a good pink nail, they've got you covered with several takes on baby,[...]

Smashbox Gloss Angeles Lip Gloss

*PR Samples/Gifted/Aff. Links/Existing Brand Relationship* Smashbox recently launched a new range of lip glosses that I kind of feel are a bit like a throwback to traditional, old-school glosses...without all the stickiness and crappy pigmentation.  The Smashbox Gloss Angeles Lip Glosses are a really pretty collection of 14 shades that are a fairly good mix, although I will say that there's a lot of pink - this is, of course, a dream come true for[...]

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[...]

OPI Nutcracker Collection

With just a few more days to go until Christmas Day arrives, some of you might not be feeling the Christmas Cheer; hopefully this gorgeous collection, a collaboration between Disney's The Nutcracker and OPI, will change that, as this is such a beautifully festive edit of colours that just looking at it makes me feel Christmassy! I'm also so impressed by how OPI collections are interpreted, as they're always so enticing and full of colour, w[...]

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[...]

Six New Brow Launches

There are so many awesome brow launches recently, and as someone who is basically a bit crap at doing brows, I lap up any newness that might take my fancy.  There really is something for everyone at the moment, depending on whether you like a really polished, "Instagram" brow, or you're more like me and just want brows that look a little more refined and a little less sparse. I really rate the L'Oreal brow products because they have gone o[...]

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[...]

Smashbox + Vlada Petal Metal Collection

I have been lusting after the Smashbox + Vlada Petal Metal Collection for months, ever since I first saw it start appearing online, as how could you not lust after such a beautifully crafted collection?! The Smashbox + Vlada Petal Metal Collection is a collaboration between Smashbox and the MUA Vlada Haggerty, who's work you will probably know without realising it, as she creates the most stunning lip art - check out her Instagram to see what I[...]
