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 […]

Josie Maran Bright and Beautiful Collection

You know those nights when you’re accidentally awake at 4am and find yourself mindlessly perusing QVC?  Well that happened last week, and two days later, I found the Josie Maran Bright and Beautiful TSV (today’s special value) on my doorstep.  I’ve been pretty impressed actually, and thought you might like to see it too.  Click to read more: The seven-piece set consists of one five-piece […]

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Hot on the heels of They’re Real, Benefit are shortly launching their new formula mascara, Roller Lash.  Lighter and less claggy (and easier to remove!) that They’re Real, Roller Lash features an innovative new brush:   Much smaller, and without the spiky ball on the end, the Roller Lash brush has tiny hooks on some of the bristles to catch and curl your lashes.  Let’s […]

Because I know I’m about to spend five god-damned minutes that I don’t even have […]

Honeymoon Makeup Bag

I didn’t want to take a huge amount of products with me to Paris last week, so broke out a tiny sampling of tried and trusted favourites, and new bits that needed a good testing, and made do with one – ONE! – lipstick whilst I was there.  I figured, hey, it’s Paris, there’s a Sephora on the doorstep if it all goes wrong! Luckily,  […]

Guerlain SS13 Maxi Lash Mascara

A new mascara is always something to rejoice in, and a new mascara from Guerlain is always something to get excited about – how does this one measure up?  Well, it’s about a third of the size of their usual mascaras, which is refreshing!  And lovely to see more of the deco-style packaging that we’ve all come to know and love from the Rouge Automatic […]
