Eyeko Relaunch – Free Nail Polish Offer!

Posted · 9 Comments

 Cosmetics brand Eyeko have relaunched in a huge, huge way. I loved the cheeky ‘cartoonish’ look of the old Eyeko, but have to admit that the new packaging is super-swish. Eyeko’s tube mascaras are squeezable so that you can get every last bit of mascara out – I dread to think how much product is [...]

Model Not Anonymous

 Changes are afoot, my friends. Changes are afoot. I wanted that to sound really mysterious but I’m not quite sure that it worked. Had I said it in person, from atop a black stallion, wearing a dark, hooded cloak then I think it may have taken on an ominous tone, but on a fine sunny morning [...]

Heat Wave!

Posted · 4 Comments

We’re having a mini heat-wave here in the UK – how utterly fantastic! I was just sorting through some images that needed processing and I found this one, taken very sneakily by Mr AMR when I was engrossed in my reading. (Location: Aenaon Villas. Heaven on earth!) I was originally going to use this image [...]

I met some absolute characters at Nutri Beauty’s open day. It’s often a real eye-opener to meet the ‘people behind the brands’ – they come from all walks of life and usually have extremely interesting stories to tell! It’s always a treat to be able to sit with the creator of a beauty range and [...]

Floris Private Collection: Sirena Eau de Parfum

 Floris have launched two new special edition fragrances into their Private Collection: Mahon Leather and Sirena. Mahon Leather is far too masculine for me to even consider wearing myself, but I love the light freshness of Sirena. If you tend to stay away from ‘mainstream’ mass-produced fragrances, then make a point of stopping in at [...]

Sue Devitt Gel Bronzer SPF40

Posted · 12 Comments

 I have been messing about with bronzers over the last week, looking for ones that are good for taking us into the autumn months. I’m “fall”ing in love (sorry) with Sue Devitt’s Gel Bronzer, which you might think a strange choice for autumn, but do let me explain. Autumn bronzers, I think, have to make [...]

Yes to Tomatoes Totally Tranquil Hydrating Lotion

 I’m instantly instantly impressed with this. A facial moisturiser to balance oily/combination skin, it’s one of the rare few that actually feels (and is) hydrating at the same time. Not all of us combination-skinned people want a tight-feeling gel formula or something that’s fluid and light.. Some of us, especially getting into the centrally-heated months, [...]

NARS Autumn Winter 2011 Collection

Posted · 16 Comments

 Next in line for the Autumn Winter Makeup Collections: NARS! I loved the ‘winged’ look in the campaign picture (shown in video) so I darkened down my brows a little, donned a sexy Vivienne Westwood number and got cracking with the eyeliner pencil! I haven’t gone anywhere near as dramatic as the campaign look, but [...]
