Avon Advanced Techniques Moroccan Argan Oil Leave in Treatment

Avon Advanced Techniques Moroccan Argan Oil Leave in Treatment
Hmm, this product that is launching in August is worrying me for two simple reasons. It is so cheap and I can’t find an ingredient listing. It’s £5.50. While its name uses the words Moroccan and Argan Oil, it was my impression that all Argan oil had to be bought through Fair Trade means. I... Read More

Jonathan Ward Sneaky Peek at Orange Opium

Jonathan Ward Sneaky Peek at Orange Opium
It’s June and I’m talking Christmas.. I know, I know. BUT, I’ve had this fab candle which will be my winter solace on the burn and it is just delicious. Somewhat typically of Jonathan Ward, it’s rather untypical for a seasonal candle. Orange Opium is borne of the concept that you can make something beautiful... Read More

Lisa Eldridge For Boots No7 2012 Daisy Darling Swatched

Lisa Eldridge For Boots No7 2012 Daisy Darling Swatched
Okay, so my swatching with Daisy Darling didn’t go that well initially – the glitter pieces are the most lovely, shiny pink, but because of their random sizes it really is hard to build up to a complete coverage with it.

However, although I don’t really think it is a match for the MAC collection, it is kind of cool with some dirtied up colours that are really wearable. I think there’s also a positive message in... Read More

Clarins 3 Dot Liner

Clarins 3 Dot Liner
Ooh, I always love an innovation and the Clarins 3 Dot Liner is perfect for anyone who finds creating the perfect line difficult. I’ve only really mastered it after years of trying and that’s only because I discovered flat ‘push’ brushes and realised that I’m best with a high pigment powder line rather than liquid.... Read More

Sleek Glory i-divine Palette

Sleek Glory i-divine Palette
I wasn’t really going to do any Olympic themed beauty as such, but this palette from Sleek MakeUP is kind of too good to miss. Each shade in the limited edition palette is named after a London Tube station. I love it – love the packaging, love the colours and love the price – £7.99.... Read More
