Intensae Winter 2014

Intensae Winter 2014
Hmm.. I don’t know about brown nails. I know they all come with lovely, chocolately names, but in reality, they can look pretty weird. I’m surprised to find it in the Intensae Winter 2014 collection, under the name of Paradisco. The Intensae Winter 2014 collection is inspired by some of our most powerful women in... Read More

Elizabeth Arden Pro Triple Action Protector

Elizabeth Arden Pro Triple Action Protector
The term ‘game-changer’ is coming up a lot in beauty right now – some are, some aren’t. But, this is. I’m going to have to cut out some of the science in this because a) I don’t fully understand it and b) it would probably be the world’s most dull post. However, if I tell... Read More

I don’t have lots of information on it – but I guess what’s inside is pretty... Read More

Essie Fall 2014

I love down-shades for nails in autumn – the same colours I want to wrap myself in when it comes to sweaters and scarves. Ive... Read More

bareMinerals Brush Set

bareMinerals Brush Set
There are so many brush sets around at the moment but the bareMinerals Brush Set stands out as being one of the best so far, not least because the presentation is great. I know it’s a cosmetic thing, but stripey brushes just seem more interesting visually than plain ones. And the brushes come in a... Read More
