Review: Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Foundation

I’ve been rather tardy in getting around to reviewing this foundation from Giorgio Armani. In fact, it has probably been reviewed to death all over the internet by now and you’re sick of hearing about it – if that’s the case then I do apologise. I’m late to the party, but I like to think…fashionably late.…

The Blog Spotlight – Could it be Yours?

I’ve had an idea that I think is quite exciting. I hope it’s exciting, anyway – you might beg to differ. But hear me out. I want to offer a space in my sidebar (the big one to the furthest right of the page) to be used by one blog or independent website each month as a…

Quick Review: Benefit’s Fine One One

Here’s a handy little cream blush. Completely mess and hassle free. You just pop the lid off, wind up the blush, stripe it on to the cheeks and lightly blend. The result is a pretty flush that’s a lot easier to wear than you’d expect – it’s not sheer, exactly, but neither are the colours particularly…

Sunday Tittle Tattle

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks… 1) I finally feel a little bit better, thank goodness. Hopefully normal “service” this week and back to one post a day. Thank you so very much for all of your lovely Get Well Soon comments and emails,…

Limping into Spring…

I’m finding it difficult to drum up any enthusiasm for writing about Springtime Beauty at this particular moment. Mostly because I’m still in bed (yes, still) with this hideous flu-with-a-touch-of-possible-pneumonia and my face looks like an old piece of tree bark that has washed up on a riverbank. I can’t imagine looking normal, with eyes that…
