Guerlain’s Christmas Cosmic Beauty

If, like me, you love all things retro and vintage then you are going to adore one part of Guerlain's 2018 Cosmic Christmas Collection more than the rest. The Ladies In All Climates compact is adorable! It's a re-edition of a cult travel-size powder created in 1897! It has a fine texture which events out and mattifies theskin with a sheer finish. It sets makeup and illuminates your skin with a natural glow. Not that I would want to use it … [Read more...]

Breast Cancer Awareness Month Beauty Buys

It's October again, and in the beauty world that means a plethora of pink products for Brest Cancer Awareness Month. It seems a little low-key this year. Maybe I'm just not getting the right releases. It's not only Estee Lauder Companies that run breast cancer charity initiatives in October, but it was Evelyn H Lauder who launched the campaign in 1992 with the co-creation of the Pink Ribbon, the universal symbol for breast health. The Breast … [Read more...]

Bobbi Brown Camo Luxe Collection

This new CAMO LUXE Collection from Bobbi Brown is a bit of a leftfield move, no? It's all about leopard this season, but if camo print is your thing, you'll like this - and the palette is as lovely as always. So, lets start with that.
