Francis Kurkdjian Apom Femme Body Cream Review

The Kurkdjian Love-In Continues…

Posted · 8 Comments

Sorry about this one folks: it’s a post about an amazing product that I can’t find a proper stockist for. I’m well aware of how annoying that is, but bear with me and I’ll try to add some stockist information by the end of the day. I’m currently away from Mission Control (again) and Google [...]

The Eve Lom Makeup Test: Surprise Verdict

Posted · 17 Comments

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 [...]

Molecule 01 – My Favourite Fragrance

Posted · 48 Comments

 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.

Posted · 9 Comments

 Fendi have released two limited edition versions of their fragrance Fan di Fendi, and they are both quite bonkers. The first, priced at £120, is a 50ml bottle that zips into its very own patent leather case, like a little leather jacket! You can see more details on that here: FAN DI FENDI, ESCENTUAL The [...]

It’s Not Terry’s, It’s Mine.

Posted · 42 Comments

Hands off, Terry – your sheer-expert foundation might be ‘by’ you, but now it’s all mine! Absolutely stonking beauty product of the week prize must go to By Terry’s Sheer-Expert Foundation. It’s so ridiculously glowy, but it has no shimmer in it at all. Wearing it is like being lit from within – look at [...]

Clarins Passion Face Palette

Retraction! Clarins Passion Face Palette

Posted · 4 Comments

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 [...]

The Problem With Pink

Posted · Add Comment

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 [...]
