Can you believe it? I’ve bought some more liquid lipsticks. What a shocker, I know! Now, when I first saw that NYX were releasing the Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks, I was dying to try them out. A collection of twelve nude shades, that will suit each and every skintone, with the promise of a long lasting, kiss proof, smudge proof pout. I was all over that. Although the NYX Lip Lingerie have since been released in the UK, I picked mine up from Ulta Beauty and I really must admit that I struggled with a choice. Each shade has been named… View Post

I love how some of the best beauty discoveries are born from being forgetful and lazy and how products that you thought were for one thing, actually turn out to be bloomin’ brilliant for other things. Like, did you know that I once forgot all my make up brushes, pencils and liners on a trip once and I learnt how to do a perfect winged eye liner using a black eyeshadow, a spoon and a cotton bud. I love being able to multi task and I also love how Nikki Tutorials, one of the only YouTubers that I watch religiously,… View Post

Looking after my skin is exceptionally important to me, and now I have the basics down to a tee for my skin, I have started to dip into more specialist treatments to improve areas on my face that have been privvy to sun damage. I’m a firm believer in facials and in depth treatments, but sometimes, you just want to spend a little bit of time, whilst at home, dealing with these problematic areas. One of my main concerns is the pigmentation that I have near my right eye. Over the years of living abroad, and travelling to exotic destinations,… View Post

I have a new obsession. I can see it getting extensive. I don’t care how much money it’s going to cost but I will be collecting and collecting until I’m satisfied. Yes, of course I am talking about the Makeup Geek eyeshadows, and I am so happy that they’ve arrived in the UK. When I started planning for this post and taking the photos, I only had the four shadows in my possession, yet as I write I seem to have accumulated a couple more. Oopsies. It’s a good thing though, I can do an updated collection post very soon.… View Post

There is nothing more satisfying than a cleansed and moisturised face and I am always up for trying out new brands to find hero products and new Holy Grail items. A brand that I have been lusting after for quite some time is Aurelia and their range of ProBiotic skincare. With the sheer amount of skincare that I own, I can’t justify spending more money on any more, but when I found out that Beauty Expert were now stocking Aurelia ProBiotic Skincare, I was chomping at the bit. What I needed was some smaller samples, that would give me an… View Post

Just how ridiculous is this weather considering its the end of April and heading into May. We’ve had rain, thunderstorms and even snow in the North West and it’s way to cold for my liking. As I write, it thundering outside and I wouldn’t be surprised to see some giant forks of lightening in a bit. In my longing for warmer weather, I am thinking happy thoughts about Spring and how lovely it will be when it eventually arrives. Spring, to me, means pastels and pinks and I’ve spotted some beautiful items that fit the bill perfectly. Lets dive into… View Post

It’s Wednesday and it’s half way through the week, hurrah. I have already noticed those dark circles starting to appear under my eyes and I am looking a tad tired. Just how do you 9-5ers do it? Three mornings of getting up at 5am and I’m wondering just how much sleep I’m going to need to make myself look human again. Luckily, I have a handful of products that I can rely on to make me look bright eyed and bushy tailed, and to really fake looking wide awake. After years of having to fake it, so to speak, I… View Post

Although I own almost as many perfumes as I do lipsticks, there are a very small few that hold a special place in my heart. The magic in a scent is that they can transport you back in time to days gone by, a place of memories that evoke warm fuzzy feelings, and remind me of my loved ones. Marc Jacobs Daisy is one of those special fragrances, and since it’s launch in 2007, I have had around 6 bottles as well as the many different variations of the original blend. The reason I love Marc Jacobs Daisy so much… View Post

Being a total tanoholic who doesn’t like to go in the sun, I am always on the look out of new tanning products that will keep my skin looking naturally bronzed and glowing without going into the harshness of the skins harmful rays. I have some wonderful tanning products that I swear by, and I’m adding to them fairly quickly. After a conversation with a friend who always seems to have fake tan disasters, which has really put her off using false tan, I thought it was a good idea to put together a little how-to. Maybe you’re a tan… View Post

It has been a long time coming but I am tackling my hoarding addition and getting rid of some make up bits and pieces that I have been neglecting, have not used before or for a while and that I have duplicates of. I actually cannot believe just how much stuff I have and therefore, I want them to go to a loving home which I am sure you will be able to do. *This blog sale is UK ONLY. *To purchase an item, please leave a comment along with your paypal email address so I can send an invoice.… View Post

I have been changing things around in my make up routine and I’m not sure if it’s because the weather is becoming so lovely or, if I’m getting a new lease of life. I’m feeling the need to be wearing the newest, freshest products on my face, so I have decided to start a new series of posts – the Spring Beauty Updates. Today’s post will be all about the base (’bout that base, no treble), and for the next few weeks I will bring you my picks for the eyes, the lips and anything new that I can’t help… View Post
