Body Shop Juicy & Fruity Lip Gloss

Body Shop Juicy & Fruity Lip Gloss
If you like your glosses packed with fruity flavour, you’re going to love this new line up from The Body Shop. I don’t really like flavoured gloss but am very tempted by Lychee! Other flavours include Mango, Coconut, Peach and Watermelon. They’re nice and sheer so you get a hint of colour to wear naturally... Read More

Beauty at Fortnum & Mason

Beauty at Fortnum & Mason
  I had a lovely wander round the bath and body section of Fortnum & Mason today – one of the things I really love about it is that it is usually quite quiet so you can just browse and enjoy without feeling rushed or hurried. Above are the gorgeous Caron coloured spray bottles. They’re... Read More

Phytomer Rosee Visage Toning Cleansing Water

L:A Bruket – Nordic Skin Care

L:A Bruket - Nordic Skin Care
There’s definitely a trend emerging for Nordic beauty products making their way to the UK. Last week, I reported on Tromborg, a beautiful make up and skin care brand from Denmark heading to our shores, but this week I stumbled across L:A Bruket, above. The range is hand-made in Sweden using mainly natural ingredients –... Read More

Bobbi Brown Kohl Cake Liner

Bobbi Brown Kohl Cake Liner
If you don’t already have a cake liner, it’s a whole new experience for really, really intense eyes. I haven’t used one for ages, but used to love the Laura Mercier cake liner for tight-lining. I have a super tight-lining brush and once you’ve got that, you’re away. You wet down the cake (just enough... Read More
