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. This lovely Camo Luxe Eye & Cheek Palette (£49.50) palette has six matte, metallic and sparkle eyeshadows, but my eye was drawn immediately to that amazing Highlighting Powder! Wow. That's gold! The eye shades … [Read more...]

Guerlain AW18 Collection

Guerlain's new AW18 makeup collection has three colour products in it - a new blush, new lipsticks, and a new, innovative, eyebrow pencil. The collection doesn't have a name - the press info just calls it Fall 18, which gets my goat in itself. Last time I looked this season was autumn in UK...please, UK press and bloggers, stop using Fall! Guerlain's KissKiss Lipsticks (£28) come in coloured cases in this collection. The shades are Rouge … [Read more...]

The lipstick has a stripe through the middle, and that central shade will illuminate the middle of your lips, … [Read more...]

Dior’s new Rouge Blush

We've all heard of matching our nail and lip colour - but our blush and lip colour? That's a new one, but it's a thing, according to Dior - and the new Dior Rouge Blush is how to do it.

Be Bold with Kiko’s Dark Treasure Collection

KIKO Milano's A/W 18 collection is out soon - and it's a beauty. The Dark Treasures collection is huge - almost too big to talk about, but I will try. There are LOADS of products in it - from skincare to makeup, to tools. The innovation here is makeup that contains active charcoal cleaners, one of the beauty world's favourite things for a while there. And there's 'Diamond Dust' in some of the products - but, yeah, that's not actual … [Read more...]

Clarins NEW Skin Illusion Foundation

I love a new foundation, and I love Clarins, but I don't love the post right now, as I am still waiting on my press sample of this to arrive, and I am itching to try it. EDIT: My foundation arrived and I am going to stick my neck out and say it's great. This is not a foundation for you if you like a full coverage.It's a sheer foundation, which might seem an odd autumnal base, when we usually want a wee bit more coverage, but it has everything … [Read more...]

Buxom has launched another new lip product - this time it's a plumping, shiny, liquid lip colour - the Va-Va Plump Shiny Liquid Lipstick. I'm a matte lipstick fan, so when this landed on my desk last week, I wasn't sure about it. I have tried it, and there are three things I want to share with you about this product: 1. It REALLY tingles upon application 2. It is VERY shiny 3. It transfers to mugs/cups/glasses VERY … [Read more...]

Madonna – Red Lipstick Queen!

Happy Birthday Madonna, 60 today!! If there is one thing I associate with Madonna more than anything, it's red lipstick. She was my red lip inspiration.
