In a new series of random finds (I do, occasionally buy things other than make up, honestly, like bacon and books), I present to you today, SOAK – a clothing detergent (is that the right word?) that is very eco-friendly and great for delicate items. I got some sachets to try (£1.65 from here) – […]
Regular readers will know that I am obsessed at the moment with Korean cosmetics and skincare – this will be stalling for a while because of the postal strikes in the UK. I have noticed that post from Asia is taking twice as long and I get really agitated when my post doesn’t arrive. Sad, […]
Ok ladies. A few quickies 1. Boo Hiss All blog sale items have been sent out now (all that have been paid for) lets *pray* that Royal Mail won’t strike on Thursday and Friday as this will have a major effect on post, UK and International incoming and outgoing. 2. Let’s do it again, baby […]
As many of you already know, Prescriptives will be bowing out shortly, after many years of loyal service. This collection will be the last one launched and its Limited Edition (obviously) for Christmas 2009 – Lustre: You like? If you love Prescriptives, now really is the time to figure out what you need to stock […]
Sorry – I am still not up to my blogging best. I also need to respond to comments. My laptop keyboard is not going to start working any time soon so a replacement is winging its way to me. But I am a creature of habit – once I have to start looking at a […]
I picked up some of the NYX eyeshadow sets called ‘For Your Eyes Only’ a while ago. I paid about £7 each for them including shipping from eBay. Now I have for you SWATCHES! These NYX palettes contain 10 shadows in them and they have a name or theme (ie – Catwalk eyes, Smokey Eyes, […]
When it comes to brand crushes, I have quite a few. Many of the brands I review on here, I generally like although I am always on the look out for new, exciting brands. It’s my blogging duty to test things out then report back to you, ain’t it?! I get obsessed, then I buy […]
It’s Monday. How ya doin?! Me? Not so great. One of the many disasters I had this week is that my boy cat, who is desperate to be an extra in the next Jackie Chan movie decided that jumping from the floor to the top of a wardrobe is a good idea and came flying […]
I didn’t have much luck with the Cargo’s smoky eye kit so when I saw this one from Pixi for just £21, I had to have it! You get an eyeshadow – a quad almost because its got for dark tones in it, a double ended brush (shadow/liner) a gel liner and a mascara in […]
You can’t beat a good giveaway and this week, even I am excited about the prize in hand! Remember Frontcover cosmetics? They did a range of palettes last year for Christmas which were exclusive to Boots. They were out at a time when everyone was going crazy for the 88 colour palettes and were hugely […]
My addiction to Skinfood lives on, although it may be stalled for a little while as Royal Mail prepare to strike – International Packages take a helluva long time in these circumstances and I am very impatient. *sobs* Anyway – I spotted these Choco Melt Lip Tube Glosses in 5 colours so bought two as […]
I picked up this gloss, just for a little pick me up the other day from Cargo for £6: Turns out the only shade I liked was called London! How patriotic! London is a sheer clear gloss full of pink micro sparkles. I comes with a brush applicator, and in a small plastic squeezy tube. […]
I got a promo email telling me that the lovely Cargo Plant Love range was launching at Puresha, a UK based site that sells lots of lovely organic skincare and make up brands. If there is one range from Cargo I do like the look of its the Plant Love! I have only ever seen […]

More Cargo today! Pigments stain fabrics. Fact. I don’t own any sheets that haven’t been sprinkled with the stuff. Pigment….glitter…..everywhere…… I picked up this set in the sale at my local Supermarket for about £7. I love mini sized everything, so this was ideal: I bought the cream shadow version of this once from QVC […]
Kim Kardashian has a big ass and impeccable make up. In her make up video she uses MAC Angel Lipstick and Nars Turkish Delight lipgloss – a seemingly pale combo for someone with as dark skin and hair as Kim. How does look on a normal, also medium toned gal? See after the jump!

I have this little vendetta against make up in cardboard palettes – I don’t like their square little corners, I don’t like how bulky they are. Therefore, a cardboard based palette has a hard time with me when it comes to review time. I am judging this book by its cover. But then again….Too Faced’s […]
Hi Guys…. I have now sent out invoices to people who were first to pick things from the blog sale. Paypal only allows 300 characters with the message box, so I will put the key info (what is in your order) in that box. (Please don’t think I am being rude if I don’t say […]
