Eyelure marks and spencer

Eyelure are another brand now available at the ever-expanding Marks and Spencer Your Beauty. Eyelure repackaged and revamped their products recently, and the packaging is great. It has an almost masculine vibe to it, don't you think? A sort of vintage, apothecary style. But what of the products? Well, there are loads, and they're all pretty good.

So, when this new Pür Minerals brand came through my door, I wasn't in a rush to try it.But, in a rush at the weekend, I decided to give … [Read more...]
