Elizabeth Arden Grand Entrance Mascara

I posted a bunch of selfies on instagram last week, not something I usually do, but in every single one someone went out of their way to compliment my “beautiful” eyelashes.  I’m lucky, my lashes are quite long naturally, as well as being black, and they curl quite well with a good mascara, but they are a little thinner than I would like, sometimes.  I […]

Skincare of the Week 11.10.15

No blog posts last week because I was unwell last Sunday and I simply couldn’t face writing in the slightest.  I still kept up with my skincare routines though, because I do (occasionally) have standards …  The routine above was a night-time one mid-week, from when I had a congested chin – complete with zit!  I haven’t had a zit in a couple of years […]

Elizabeth Arden Sunkissed Pearls Cream Eye Shadow Stylos

Now, if you had asked me recently what my favourite cream eyeshadow stick/wand/pencil/crayon/whatever was, I’d have answered the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks I featured yesterday, but I was incredibly pleasantly surprised by these limited edition “stylos” from Elizabeth Arden when they arrived a little while ago.  These babies last.  And last, and last … it is safe to say I definitely saved the best for […]

Cheap Smells (or how to smell good without breaking the bank …)

By Laurin I recently overheard someone dismiss a wonderful early 90’s commercial blockbuster fragrance with a wave of the hand and a dismissive, “It’s a bit…high street for me.” House rules prevent me swearing on this blog, so I am unable to repeat my exact thoughts. However, I would like to offer the following observation: “Your MUM’S a bit high street.” Nobody wants to be […]

Best of 2013 Pt II

Fragrance of the year: Maison Francis Kurkdijan – Aqua Vitae According to Persolaise, I said it best  – at a preview of the scent –  when I mumbled that it smelt like a hug from the seventies.  I’m astonished that I’ve not really written about this fragrance since though (might be something to do with having my best line used before I could commit it […]

Review: Elizabeth Arden Fragrance Free 8 Hour Cream

I still have the first tube of Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream that I ever bought, there’s still some left, and it’s still perfectly useable.  Yes, I’m a skank, but, well, this stuff lasts forever.  Something else that lasts forever is the scent!  8 Hour Cream is the Marmite of skincare, you either love it, or hate it.  I freely admit, I go through phases […]

Elizabeth Arden Rose Gold Collection

Ignore the chintzy, and slightly dowdy, boxes, this is a beautiful, beautiful collection from Elizabeth Arden this summer, I’ve been very pleasantly surprised with what’s in these boxes this year: Yes, a collection of rose gold compacts, and lipstick. These are gorgeous, and really tactile.  What we have here are two bronzers, a highlighter and a lipstick: You have (clockwise from left), Rose Illumination, bronzer […]

Products I love – Updated!

For those of you who followed my last blog, you’ll know that the original of this post (below!) was written the best part of five years ago … how time flies! So I’m going to update the post, and see what’s been replaced, and what’s still going strong. I’ll be doing a separate list of my new favourites later. Kerastase Dermo Calm shampoo – Simply […]

Products I Love

There are so many cosmetic products out there these days, that products don’t really need to stand the test of time, there is always the latest “wonder product” to replace things with. For me, the test of whether a product is any good or not is “Will I buy it again?” and, in the vast majority of cases, the answer quite simply is no. Luzzegain […]
