The Very Best Christmas Present For A Beauty Blogger

Would be a lipstick named after them.  It’s been a while coming, but, very shortly after Daniel Sandler and I cooked up this shade back in May, the wonderful Lynne Sanders of Cosmetics A La Carte let slip to me that they were adding “Luce” to their permanent line, and I’ve been like a little kid waiting for Santa ever since!  Imagine, a lipstick that […]

In Love – By Daniel Sandler Home

 When two of your favourite people decide to collaborate, it’s a cause for celebration.  When those two people are as talented as Daniel Sandler and Jonathan Ward, it’s a time for jubilation. I have to admit, I’ve been (impatiently) waiting for this candle ever since Daniel and Jonathan started chatting on Twitter a few months ago, and I’m happy to say that it’s definitely been […]

What’s a beauty blogger to do? Well, in the case of this particular beauty blogger, you basically SQUEEEEEEEE with excitement, and run round the office like a lunatic for twenty minutes then say […]

Daniel Sandler Brushes

I’ve lot count of how many makeup brushes I own, there are a lot.  Besides which, I have two sets, a set of brushes that I keep for myself, and a set (from Crown brushes) that I keep aside for makeovers, that I rarely use on my own skin.  I was made a gift of some Daniel Sandler brushes a while ago, and I’ve been […]

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 […]

Purple FotD

Just a random FotD that I haven’t posted earlier, I love this purple shadow from Daniel Sandler,  I’ve posted about it before, I think it really makes the colour of my eyes stand out: When I’m not wearing my beloved taupes and neutrals, purple is my default “go-to” shade (my favourite smokey eye is a purple one), it’s a great shade, and this is a […]

Actually, […]

A day with Daniel Sandler

Naomi Campbell.  Jade Jagger.  Yasmin le Bon. Kate Moss. Joanna Lumley.  Keira Knightly. And now … Get Lippie.  Oh yes, Daniel Sandler has all the luck … Now, if you’re a regular reader, then it should be fairly well known by now that I adore Daniel Sandler. Having met him a few times this year, I’ve found him to be funny, friendly, down-to-earth and I’ve […]

In a rush!

I mentioned yesterday that I’m lazy, and I’d rather spend an extra minute or two in bed than spend time using two products when I can use only one.  So I thought I’d tell you my favourite “two minute face” products. For my base, I’d use Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturising Balm, it has SPF 25, and works well for evening out skintone (taking the place […]

Perfect Purple? Daniel Sandler Sheer Satin Eyeshadow 575

Specifically for OxfordJasmine, this one …  I know a few people are on the lookout for the perfect “Cadbury” purple eyeshadow, and I think this one is definitely a contender!  Daniel Sandler himself picked this one out for me recently (more about that next week) after I confessed my love of purple eyeshadow to him.  I’ve long been after a proper “bright” purple that isn’t […]
