bareMinerals READY

bareMinerals READY
If you tune into this blog regularly then you’ll know that mineral make up is my bete noir. The number of times I’ve tried it and hated it, from the dusty strays through to the dryness factor, we just don’t get along. BUT! I’ve just been to the launch today of the bareMinerals READY range;... Read More

Givenchy MISTER PERFECT

Givenchy MISTER PERFECT
Completely love this made-to-measure retoucher called Givenchy MISTER PERFECT that erases make-up mistakes with the flick of a pen. This could not be more perfect for me who cannot do identical strokes of eyeliner correctly first time. It’s launching in March 2012 for £20.

Max Factor Fantasy Fire Give Away
I’m a little late in catching up with the news of the mini Fantasy Fire polish that has become one of the most sought after holo nail varnishes in the world right now. And, why? Because apparently it is a dupe of Clarins 230, a now discontinued shade that sells for upwards of $50 a... Read More

I might add that amongst beauty bloggers, I think... Read More

Steamcream Love For Japan

Steamcream Love For Japan
You can’t help loving this very worthy beauty launch. Steamcream’s Love For Japan tin, £12.95, with 100% of the funds* raised from its sale going to support the people of Japan. Because the earthquake and tsunami in Japan was so catastrophic, people are still suffering the devastating effects. The disaster killed more than 20,000 people... Read More

Laduree Make Up

Laduree Make Up
Ok, the Laduree make-up range has now been released in Asia, and thanks to another blogger I am soon going to be the proud owner of a cameo blush as Liz picked one up for me on her travels. I’ve also used some of her pictures below (with kind permission) so you can see more... Read More
