Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream

Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream
I’ve wanted to try this product from Singapore for ages so when it came through the post this morning I got straight to it.  It’s a lovely fluid consistency that gives a mattifying effect to the skin so is far more suitable to those with oily complexions than dry. I’m not personally a fan of... Read More

OPI For Sephora Jewelry Top Coats

OPI For Sephora Jewelry Top Coats
I am all over these top coats from OPI for Sephora that have taken sparkly polish to a whole other level. They’ve mixed up small and large glitter pieces, put some amazing colours together (in I Found A Pot of Gold there are blue pieces, gold and yellow) and used rectangular strips of glitter in... Read More

Cheryl Cole and L’Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara

Cheryl Cole and L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara
I’m very pleased to see that the ads featuring Cheryl Cole for L’Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara have been shot without using any lash inserts and show her lashes just as they naturally are, but wearing mascara.  When you think about it, it’s kind of amazing that any brands are allowed to advertise their products... Read More

Blue Orchid is for dehydrated skin.  The smell is reassuringy spa-y and the oil contains rosewood, patchouli and blue orchid extracts with hazelnut oil to really push... Read More

Update on CO2RE Eye Lift

Rodial and The ASA – Again

A snippet I read in my favourite beauty trade magazine, www.cosmeticsinternational.net reports that Rodial is back on the agenda at the Advertising Standards Authority. They’ve recently been reprimanded for a misleading advert for Body Sculpture, only a month after being ordered to remove misleading testimonials for Glamtox Sticks and Glamoxy Snake Serum.  The ASA ruled... Read More

Phyto Secret de Nuit

Phyto Secret de Nuit
Another cracking product, this time from Phyto, in the form of Secret de Nuit; an overnight hair conditioner that doesn’t need rinsing out and that you can use on dry hair. Containing Macadamia oil, Ceramides, Fatty Acids, Black Orchid extracts, grape seed phenols and Milk Thistle, you’d think it would be hefty on the hair... Read More
