LipsNspritz of the Fortnight, Pt II

 This week, I basically took a “lucky dip” approach to my perfume and lipstick choices.  After three months and nearly 80 lipstick and perfume pictures, I realise I’m probably something like a quarter of the way through my fragrance collection, and possibly, maybe, a tenth (perhaps?) of the way through my lipsticks.  There’s a few months of this to go, yet, I think! Monday was […]

Current Favourite Blushers

I didn’t see the point of blusher for the longest time, and so, for many years I didn’t use it.  I’ve had high-colouring for many years, so the thought of adding MOAR COLORZ to my skin was a scary one, to say the least!  These days, however, I’d rather leave the house without lipstick than without my blusher! Blush brightens the face, and can add […]

Stila Collectible Beach Palettes

You’ll have seen these collectible little palettes on a number of blogs, I suspect, but I’m going to ignore that fact and show you them myself, because they’re very lovely.  And, at a cost of just £10 each, they’re a real bargain, and perfect for those last minute stocking stuffer presents you might need. There are three palettes in the collection: Striking in South Beach, […]

Nude Eyeliners

 Up until a couple of months ago, I didn’t own a single “nude” eyeliner.  Having been tortured throughout the ’80s by white eyeliner that was supposed to make you look more “awake” (but in reality just kind of made people look like they had been attacking their eyes with Tipp-Ex), I didn’t really think there was anything you could realisitically use these pencils for.  I’d […]

MORE bargains! Stila

After my last (dreadful) experience with Stila, I was in two minds whether to pick up any more, but these were such a bargain that I thought even if they’re awful, it’s not too much of a loss.  I picked up four loose shadows and a smudge post in Jade for just £10! Thank goodness for the random bargains you can find in TJ Hughes […]

Makeover: Donna

Meet Donna:   Donna has the most lovely eyes, but she told me that she’s got out of the habit of wearing shadow recently, and was looking to learn how to apply dramatic “winged” eyeliner.  When Donna does apply colour to her eyes she uses a lot of teals and purples, but we discussed something a bit different and decided that orange was the way […]

Be Stila My Beating Heart …

I believe Stila is exiting as a beauty brand from the UK, I’m not sure I’m surprised at this news, I’ve always liked the looks of their products, but have never really been grabbed enough by them to make them a regular purchase.  This wasn’t helped by the discovery that I’m allergic to their lipglosses, which really are their star product. But Brandalley had a […]
