Natural Everyday Makeup On A Budget

Posted · 12 Comments

It’s been a long while since I did a budget video. I was inspired to make this one because I have been judging products for the Zest Beauty Awards and there were some absolute gems from the high-street and budget brands. This is the first of two videos – the next one will cover haircare, skincare and [...]

L'Oreal Telescopic False Lash Mascara

L’Oreal Telescopic False Lash Mascara

Posted · 14 Comments

It would be unfair of me not to give this highly affordable little mascara its own post. I have used it so much in recent videos and so I feel a bit like I’m going over old ground, but if I don’t give L’Oreal’s False Lash Telescopic Mascara a dedicated post then it won’t come [...]

Greek Beauty Products

Posted · 17 Comments

Just a very quick little video showcasing some Greek beauty brands. I visit Greece almost every year and I wanted to highlight some of the products that are easily available worldwide. I’m so sorry about the sound – after the cicadas disaster of the last one, I had to do some sound tweaking and so [...]

Some of you may have seen me appearing here there and everywhere in a little Youtube commercial for YSL’s Teinte Touche Éclat. I’ve got the full-length version of my “section” embedded below should you want to watch it! Did anyone try the foundation when they were doing the free trials? I really like it – [...]

Spa Fabulous Cleanse & Glow

Posted · 12 Comments

I have been testing out Neena Trehan’s Cleanse & Glow cleanser. It’s lovely. I had no idea what to expect from it as I’d never heard anyone talk about it or seen any reviews, but I quite like testing something “blind”, so to speak.

Bedside Beauty Snapshot, Greece, August 2012

Posted · 34 Comments

This Bedside Beauty Snapshot is a special holiday edition. The products shown were my most-used when I was away in Greece and you’ll have seen a few things before – especially the Heal Gel, which I’ve harped on about loads this year. Surprise product? The disgustingly-named Snoxin. I really like it! Who the hell thought of [...]
