Benefit Brow Starter Kits

Remember when Benefit launched a million brow products earlier this year? Well, now they've sorted them all out for you, and popped them into cute little brow kits in even cuter tins. (Who doesn't love a tin?!) Benefit launched all the brow products you could ever need and then some back in June this year. It got a wee bit confusing at times, there were just so many products to choose from. But now, in the shape of cute little Brow … [Read more...]

Bobbi Brown, Wine, Chocolate and Go Sober October!

The irony wasn't lost on me when this lovely collection by Bobbi Brown landed on my desk last week.

Not having a drink this month has been tough, and when this lovely lot arrived, it made things even worse! With names including wine, and prosecco, the products were taunting me! But my resolve is sound, and … [Read more...]

The Frog Prince (lipstick) Story

Last year I wrote a post about a green lipstick that wasn't actually green - it was Lipstick Queen's Frog Prince lipstick, and it was - and is - a massive hit. As well as it being Lipstick Queen's best-seller, it's Space NK's fastest selling single shade of lipstick of all time! So, here's the next chapter in the story - the Frog Prince Story. Launching next month, it's a cute little Frog Prince Cream Blush and Lipstick set. It's an ideal … [Read more...]

Clinique’s new Superbalanced Foundation

Clinique have just launched another new foundation, called Superbalanced. I've probably tried pretty much all of Clinique's foundations over the years, and liked some more than others. I don't generally use Clinique bases these days, but I gave this one a go for this review, and it's pretty decent. The idea of it is that it 'balances it all' in terms of makeup. So, it feels weightless on your skin, but gives perfect cover,controls oil, but … [Read more...]

Nails Inc – The Reflectors

Hands up who loves a metallic nail? I know I do, but the more glitter, the harder it is to get it off. There is actually nothing enjoyable at all about some glitter and metallic polishes out there. But, this Nails Inc mini collection - The Reflectors, is pretty decent. My favourite is Kings Cross Road, a lava silver, which is a block colour. Every year I look for a new metallic nail polish, because I love them so, and this is definitely the one … [Read more...]
