Those amazing people over at The Body Shop have certainly listened to our needs with this new release. With women taking a whole month of their lives taking, editing and deleting selfies, this is certainly the selfie era. But surely there’s a way to boost our confidence without filters and apps. So, what if you could look amazing without the need of technology? Well if you’re a selfie lover, I think this ones for you. (more…)

No 7 Lash Impact Mascara

I’m pretty fortunate in the way that my lashes are dark and naturally quite long. I rarely bother to curl them and I’m not one to get excited over a mascara. But when I was walking through Boots a few days ago, something sparkly caught my eye.

A complete sucker for anything in nice packaging, I couldn’t resist the new No 7 Lash Impact Mascara.

Rimmel Stay Blushed

In the heat of the Rimmel Rita Ora launch, I think these little beauts have been hugely over looked. Although they are not something I would usually pick up, something about them pushed me to give them a go. And I’m glad I did!

I don’t usually wear cream blushers but this has certainly converted me.

New Release: Lorde for MAC

We’ve seen Niki Minaj, Rihanna and Kelly Osbourne release some truly classic ranges with the cosmetics giants MAC. But now it’s the younger, edgier, Lordes turn to take over MAC.
And it’s obvious from the start that she’s a girl after our own hearts. “I have loved MAC Cosmetics since I was a little kid. I remember saving up to buy my very first MAC lipstick [the pale pink Snob] at 14, and it was used by about 20 of my friends,” says Lorde, who must be feeling (more…)

Review: Smashbox Full Exposure Palette

20140303-135038.jpg

Palettes are quickly becoming a big part of my makeup collection and just like most beauty lovers, I’m always on the hunt for the next best nude palette.
I love my Urban Decay Naked palettes but they do lack the matte shades that I tend to use the most for an everyday look.
A lot of cosmetics company’s are getting savvy and realising that Nude is where it’s at. With nude palettes being released by Bobbi Brown, Clinique and NARS it can be quite hard to decide which

Rimmel Apocalips

I’m not a huge lip gloss fan but today a product that’s new to the shelves caught my eye. Rimmel Apocalips looks like a gloss but is described more as a lip lacquer.
These lip lacquers are highly pigmented which creates rich colours in both nude and bright colourful shades. I bought the shades Nude Eclipse and Stella.

Poudre Signée De Chanel

This is one product that has been massively raved about all over the beauty blogosphere! After seeing all the images of its lovely design and hearing that it’s limited edition I just had to get my hands on it.

Buying any high end makeup product is bound to make you feel like you have you have your hands on that little bit of luxury and it sure does make me feel special. (more…)
