Bye Bye Le Metier De Beaute

Bye Bye Le Metier De Beaute
I’m so sad that Le Metier is pulling out of the UK: Echo Blush is one of my all-time favourites and became one of my staple gifts for girlfriends – now I need to find the next holy grail blush to replace it. Although other bloggers have spoken to the counter staff at Selfridges who... Read More

Isla Sirena

Isla Sirena
Right, you’ll have to bear with me while I confess to confusion about Isla Sirena: from what I understand, it appears to be a co-brand initiative between DuWop and Disney with parts remaining DuWop and The Treasure Map palette being Disney, but the whole lot ‘inspired’ to varying degrees by Pirates of the Caribbean..er, I... Read More

Thalgo Ocean Memory Body Cream

Thalgo Ocean Memory Body Cream
Personally, I find it quite hard to justify really splashing out on body creams when there are so many good ones on the market that don’t cost a bomb (ahem, I am forgetting for a little while my penchant for Sisley Confort Extreme Body Creme that is £73 – it’s a very long time since... Read More

Frontcover Custom Palette

Frontcover Custom Palette
I like the Frontcover baked shadows – they’re easy to use and give a good, silky colour payoff at a reasonable price (and there always seem to be offers around on the big multi-shadow boxes). The new customisable palette is a great idea – pick your own colours so you don’t end up with the-shade-you-never-use... Read More

butterLONDON Bluey

butterLONDON Bluey
It’s not often I get a hand mixed sample of nail polish, but this one is so early, early for next autumn that it’s still only at sample stage. Nonie Creme, creative director of butterLONDON nail polish aimed for ‘luxe grunge’ for the A/W11 catwalk shows and mixed up custom colours for various designers. So,... Read More

Swatches: Andrea Fulerton Nails and Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen

Swatches: Andrea Fulerton Nails and Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen
Really feeling for teal shades at the moment – this Endless Silky Eye Pen from Pixi in True Teal is slightly metallic and has good hold on the lids – you can smudge it up a bit, but really it looks best in one slim line across the lid. I decided to get all nail... Read More
