Important: Work in Progress

Posted · 17 Comments

 OK, listen up. I’m having something bordering on a nervous breakdown trying to shift to a very slightly different website format. I know that it doesn’t look right at the moment, and I know that you probably keep clicking on and thinking I’ve gone completely bonkers, but please bear with me. I do all of [...]

Moroccan Natural Argan and Rose Serum

Moroccan Natural Argan and Rose Serum

Posted · 12 Comments

 There seems to be a huge grey area surrounding the definition of ‘serum’ and so I want to just briefly touch on that before talking about Moroccan Natural’s Argan Rose treatment. Personally, I consider a serum to be a skincare treatment that’s a) runny and that b) contains a concentrated shot of ingredients. Many are [...]

Autumn Makeup Collection Megamix 2

Posted · 8 Comments

Hooray! The second instalment of the Autumn Winter 2011 Makeup Collections videos! This one features Chanel, YSL (which many of you will have viewed the other day, but lots of people couldn’t see the Vimeo clip so I’ve re-included it) and Sisley. So very high-end, but everything is extremely beautiful. There are some amazing textures [...]

 I have been testing out teen products for my upcoming teen skincare video, and this was a cleanser that really stood out for me. (I know that I don’t have the same skin as a teen, but I’m testing various things alongside my teen guinea pigs!) It leaves skin very, very clean and almost tight, [...]

I harped on about ‘water in a can’ not so long ago – these facial spritzes that are either just mineral water, or just extremely expensive normal water with a few added drops of essential oil. There’s nothing particularly wrong with the ‘water-in-a-can’, per se, but if you’re going to spend some dosh on one [...]

 I’m not overly fond of lip ‘plumpers’ but this one is a little different. Becca Lip Plumping Moisture Gloss doesn’t try to burn my mouth off with what feels like a kilo of concentrated jus de habenero pepper and I thank it for that. I don’t particularly want to look like a blow-up sex-doll anyway, thanks [...]

Miners Matte Factor Review

The Cheapest Matte Lip Colour EVER.

Posted · 18 Comments

 I am totally smitten with Miners’ new Matte Factor lip paints. I can’t find a single thing I don’t like about them, apart from the smell/taste, which is like a Nightmare in Vanilla. They go on smoothly as can be and then dry quickly to a matte finish – which, unbelievably, doesn’t dry out my [...]
