New Year, Old Me

By Tindara: Happy New Year! If you’re anything like me you will be utterly bored with all the “New Year New Me” nonsense and be wanting to shove anything “detoxing” up the jacksie with a rolling pin. At least, I think that’s what they’re recommending; I tend to switch off after someone mentions a detox. Instead, I’ve decided to do the exact opposite and track […]

Bourjois One Seconde Gel Polish: Shades 3, 4, 5, 6, 9 & 15

(L-R: Shade numbers 6, 4, 15, 5, 3, and 9 Didn’t realise they had numbers when I lined them up – sigh) Whilst hanging around in Superdrug (you know, like you do) recently, I had my eye caught by these colourful little numbers!  Also, they were on 3-4-2, so it would have been rude not to pick up a couple or three. My nails are […]

Lippie Loves: Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover

Another one in my occasional series of Lippie Loves, and this time it’s hardcore: Launching later this month,  this £3.99 sponge-filled jar deals with even the toughest of nail varnish in seconds flat.  It’s not quite the one second that it claims on the bottle, but it’s pretty damn close.   The black nail varnish you see in the picture – that I wore purely for […]

Guest Post – Bourjois Mascara Madness

Floamia is my latest guest poster, who’s come out of her blogging retirement to take a thorough and much appreciated look at a range of Bourjois mascaras.  I’m very honoured, thank you Floamia! ***** I’d like to start off this post just saying thank-you for the opportunity to write for this blog, which I’ve been a fan of for quite a while. Much appreciated!   […]

Bourjois Little Round Pots

I love me some Bourjois, I think they’re actually my favourite high street brand.  I find their products are very high quality for the price point (even as I notice that price point is creeping ever-upwards these days), but it’s fair to say that my makeup collection contains a sizeable collection from the brand. When I discovered they’d relaunched their entire collection of “Little Round […]

My Picks of 2010

Needless to say, you’ll have seen a million of these posts already, and I was in two minds whether or not to post my selections too, but some of these products have been life-changing for me, and I thought I’d share them anyway … Bath Products of The Year: Aromatherapy Associates Early on in the year, I was sent an Aromatherapy Associates Miniature Bath and […]

Lip Stains

I’m a big fan of lipstains, whilst I don’t mind spending time applying my makeup in the mornings, I’m actually very lazy, and re-applying lipstick is something I don’t bother doing all that often during the day, so it’s nice that there are products you can use that’ll stay in place all day. That said though, I’m always slightly disappointed with products that look a […]

Organic Weekend – Une Natural Beauty from Bourjois

I do love me a bit of Bourjois, long one of my favourite High Street brands, I was delighted to find out recently that they were launching a new range of affordable organic cosmetics!  Already available in a few Boots stores around the country (London readers, you can find your nearest stand in the Oxford Street branch), it’s making it’s official debut on the Boots […]

Makeover: Laura

Laura got married yesterday, but way back in February she asked me for some ideas for her wedding makeover.  Here’s what we came up with. Please welcome Laura: Laura was a little too young to remember Prisoner Cell Block H, hence the rather cheery “before” pic this week.  As always we start with the foundation.  Laura is very pale (and yet had been recently colour […]

Makeover: Helen S

 Gosh, it’s been a few weeks since I posted a makeover, I’m really sorry! I hope you’ll all make Helen very welcome, she’s a great friend of mine, and we’ve been makeup shopping A Lot over the years. Mainly because it took me a very long time to cure Helen of her frosted mauve lipstick fetish …. Here she is, all fresh-faced, and only slightly […]

Mini Makeover – Ruth

Yes, it’s a mini-makeover again this week, mainly because I AM the world’s worst photographer, and I owe Ruth a massive apology as a result. Anyhoo, on with the “show”, as they say!  Please meet Ruth: Ruth is someone I’ve known virtually for longer than I care to remember, but up until her makeover we’d never actually met in the flesh!  Ruth runs Love it […]

Foundation Week Finale – Liquids

I love liquid foundations, and have amassed a fair collection of them over the years. There are very many different formulations, and with liquid foundations, it can be a case of trial and error getting the right formulation for yourself. There are two main kinds, ones that leave you with a dewy glow, and matte ones – but, of course, there are all kinds of […]
