Spree vs Steal ; Charlotte and Kate go head to head in the ring! Who’s gonna win??? Eyes down for the big reveal…
Rating ; The eyes have it with these 2 hot, on trend must try palettes for effortless ‘nude’ eyes. So which is it Spree vs. STEAL? I put 2 pretty much EYE-dentical palettes under the microscope...
Inside scoop ; Nude eyes – must buys; suit all shades from subtle Sunday to sizzling Saturday everyone needs a palette of suit-all nude eyeshadow. But do you splurge or save…sure we’d all like both. So I tested Rimmel London nudes eyes vs Charlotte Tilbury’s holiday eyes Xmas ’17 (well I will be if I can get my hands on it….).
Palettes are my go-to format for eyes, cheeks and anything powdery. Why? Gives you options, lets you experiment and you rarely get bored.
So the question is Spree? Or Steal? …read ON…Charlotte T or Kate Moss for Rimmel…
Wicked Wednesday Went Wild : WITH…Unicorn glitter, just because you can.
Rating ; Flippant Flirty Fun & absolutely Frivolous. Don’t read on if you’re easily DAZZLED and WARNING you definitely do NOT need this product. But – sometimes especially on a grey wet Wednesday just say ‘whatever’ and grab some. Festival season isn’t over yet so go on its wild Wednesday.
Inside scoop ; Unicorn Glitter bring it ON. Ok it’s Wednesday, you’re probably in a serious meeting, or bored, or grumpy, or just wishing for the weekend 🙂 to hurry on up, then along came UNICORN GLITTER. Wrong, OTT, sparkling magic dust ; just for the sheer heck of it : Unicorn glitter. YES!
Can’t say you need it, nor will you wear it everyday, but whilst Festival Season is still just about in swing then I say rock on, glitter up and work it.
Inside scoop; Retinol heard of it? If not : need to. And the reason I know it that this particular product works is – I actually MADE it – about 10 years ago now before well, retinol became everyone’s go-to no nonsense anti-ageing treatment. I formulated this range so I know I can trust this one.
Get the low down on Vit A Vit C : Skincare’s hottest repair duo. Much copied…many ineffective even the really expensive ones. It’s all about the formulation.
NOT as bizarre as it sounds I love chocolate, I love skincare, it was only a matter of time before I mixed my passions…
Rating ; Chokky-wooky-oh-LaLa,a mid week treat for your skin and yourself! Following nicely on from Coco Loco Monday Manic Monday? Don’t go Mad : go CoCo!! comes Choccie Tuesday. Ok you got me I AM partial to more than a cube of chocolate (ALWAYS from fridge for me) but recently I’ve begun to cover myself in it too!!! MASSIVE anti-ageing benefits for older skin, or any skin really.
Inside scoop ; Chocolate skincareisn’t as weird as it sounds and like it’s edible companion it’ll soon be my next addiction. Why because it’s packed full of antioxidants and makes your skin feel great. True reason why, it just kind of feels a little bit secretly dirty, indulgent and YUMMY.
Inside scoop; BRYT-BRYT-BRYT hoo-ray Bryt skincare Bryt Bryt HOORAYSundayjust got soooo much lazier. Not sure if you pronounce it ‘Bright’ (as it does to your skin) or ‘Bryt’ (as in Brit Awards) but this English brand is likely to soon become a National Treasure.
Ace the base take 2 with a Flawless Friday Foundation Find ; or FFFF this one’s good!
Rating ; Primer ; so is it Prime Time, just a Waste of Time, or you’ve No time? For me I honestly thought yup Primer-schmimer it was either Waste, or No time…life’s too short for A.N.O. Beauty step, with me? But…
Inside scoop; Along came New CID Cosmetics – must find out what they stand for – at first I read their name as New KID Cosmetics (kind of like that thought). But anyway there it was, a little bit like carpet without any underlay, strawberries without cream, meat without veg, cake without icing (!) suddenly foundation WITHOUT Primer was just, well a bit less good!
Fine, Feathery, Fabulous ; Friday finery ; check out these gorgeous earrings from cute niche US brand Shiver&Duke
Rating ; Feathery-fantastic-feeling-fine-for-Friday ok NOT strictly a beauty product but a beautifying FIND and a bit of Friday fun so I thought it counted. Especially as earrings can make as much of a difference in lifting your look as a new lipstick, so I had to share these flirty-feathers.
Inside scoop; Shiver-me-timbers it’s Shiver & Duke. Shiver and Who I hear you say??? Well, I just discovered this cute little brand in a cool boutique where I live which have begun stocking it. They called to me – loud – from their window. I resisted, for about an hour, then rushed back and scooped them up.
What are they – straight up, unashamed ear candy of course. This gorgeous range of feathery earrings are literally feather light meaning statement-heavy but NOT heavy-on-the ear. I wear them for day, most might possibly save them for night. Continue reading “Friday Feathery Fabulous”
