Guerlain’s Terracotta On The Go

Guerlain's Terracotta collection for this summer has some really interesting new pieces - perfect for on-the-go makeup. I work from home, so I tend to do my makeup at my desk, but I also love the ease of a product you can just sweep over your skin, especially in the summer. The new Terracotta sticks, loose powder and palette can all be taken with you wherever you go without weighing you down - and the packaging is super-chic. The Contour … [Read more...]

Clarins Summer 2019

I've mentioned the new Clarins Summer Collection in this sunny summer beauty post already, but I'm going to focus on the whole collection again because it's so good. It's just three products, and the SOS Primer bronzer is recommended as well. For lips, there is a Limited Edition Water Lip Stain (£19). Clarins created this product in 2018, a formula made up of 77 per cent water, rich in plant ingredients including organic raspberry water, and … [Read more...]

Bobbi Brown Summer 2019 Collection

Bobbi Brown's Summer Collection for this year is already at John Lewis in an early exclusive - and it's worth seeking out. It's very, er, compact, if you pardon the pun...consisting of just three new products - two of them in compacts! I reviewed the new Limited Edition High Shine Liquid Eye Shadow for the Sunny Summer post earlier this week, and it really is something completely different, and a perfect summer product. There is nothing … [Read more...]

So, to keep things sunny, here are six sunny beauty buys that will at least have you feeling the summer vibes, even if … [Read more...]

L’Occitane Lips!

L'Occitane is killing it just now! They have some fantastic launches this year, and the new Lip Collection is one of them. The packaging is bright, bold, sassy, yellow, and I love it.

There are three Lip Scrubs (£14) - Marmalade Kiss, Raspberry Crush and … [Read more...]

MAC Viva Glam 25 and Winnie Harlow

I was an America's Next Top Model ADDICT, and Tyra Banks is a goddess, so I was a little less than impressed when ANTM alumini Winnie Harlow - who Tyra found on the internet and invited on to the show - discredited it. Eh, not fierce, Winnie, not fierce! Winnie has certainly made it big since her time on the show in 2014, and whilst I am sure she's worked hard, come on - got to give Tyra a little bit of credit. Anyway, here she is in her … [Read more...]

Bobbi Brown Ultra-Violet and Infra-Red Eyer Palettes

Bobbi Brown has always been famous for its palettes - I have a really old one somewhere, the one you clicked the individual shadows into. Do they even do those any more?! The latest two eye palettes are, in my mind, a bit of a change for the brand - bigger, with more colours, and more like a lot of other palettes out there that beauty bloggers and wannabe MUAs just seem to love. These two are pretty simple - one is Ultra-Violet, and the other … [Read more...]

It's National Unicorn Day. Yes, that is a thing. The unicorn is Scotland's national animal, so why should we not celebrate this lovely, mythical, omnipresent, beast? Unicorns are EVERYWHERE! You can pretty much get anything unicorn-shaped, themed, or printed in 2019, but let's concentrate on some unicorn beauty bits that you might want to get your hands on. 1. MAGICAL UNICORN NAIL STICKERS, £2.95, REXLONDON.COM - for kids, really, but who … [Read more...]
