The Eve Lom Makeup Test: Surprise Verdict

face makeup test mineral foundation

A rather belated review, I’m afraid; I had a bit of a shade mix-up with the Eve Lom products when they were first launched and then they got a little overlooked for a while, partly because I wasn’t overly wowed by the product that I tried first (spoiler alert!) but mostly because my schedule went haywire and I simply couldn’t ...

Molecule 01 – My Favourite Fragrance

Escentric Molecules 1

 I have been trawling through a whole load of fragrances, wondering what to suggest people buy for Christmas or put on their wish-lists, and I have realised that the main problem with fragrance – the biggest reason for it sometimes feeling like a bit of a ‘cop out’ present – is that it’s so mainstream.

Aqua Sana Spa Suites

I think I can safely leave it to Mr AMR to sum up the new Aqua Sana Spa Suites at Center Parcs, Elveden Forest.

It’s so ridiculously glowy, but it has no shimmer in it at all. Wearing it is like being lit from within – look at my photograph! I must have ... Read More »

Retraction! Clarins Passion Face Palette

Clarins Passion Face Palette

ARGH! Retraction, retraction, just so I don’t make a complete tool of myself! In the October Beauty Roundup I talked about the Clarins Passion Face Palette and I used it as a subtle illuminator on my cheekbones and under my brows. This is not an illuminator! After a number of uses, it seems that the gold sparkles just disappear – ... Read More »

The Problem With Pink

Sorry, I couldn’t think of a more interesting title! I was having a rummage through my makeup box last week – the box of things that have ‘yet to be tried’, which is overwhelmingly huge – and I found a little selection of pink lippies that I had been meaning to play with for a while. Pink is a difficult ... Read More »
