MAC Brooke Shields

MAC Brooke Shields

I’ve already made my feelings clear about the airbrushing on the promo pictures for the MAC Brooke Shields range (HERE), so I won’t bang on about it now. Actually, it’s a very extensive range but I’ve only got a couple of items to show you so far – lucky then that one of them is... Read More
Mark Hill's Wonderballs

Mark Hill’s Wonderballs

You might well ask. No, it’s not another crazy Japanese gadget to keep your breasts perky or your nose straight (thankfully), but it is based on a Japanese design that I’ve spotted (and blogged) before. Ideally, you’d use this to create soft waves, because you can get twists and volume at the same time if... Read More
The Body Shop Advent Calendar

The Body Shop Advent Calendar

Oh my.. they just keep on coming! This might be sneaking in as my favourite – all will become clear. The Body Shop Advent Calendar for 2014 is a beauty (check out the rabbits by the front door!) and it’s – obviously – full of Body Shop favourites. I’m not going to do a big reveal... Read More
Accessory Wednesday Colors of California High Tops

Accessory Wednesday Colors of California High Tops

Okay, so here they are – *those* boots. Colors of California High Tops are a marmite boot, I think – you will either love them or loathe them. I’m obviously in the love camp since I treated myself to a pair but even I’m realising I’m going to have to gather some confidence to wear... Read More
Dior Christmas Beauty 2014 Part 2

Dior Christmas Beauty 2014 Part 2

I love the bottle shapes of these polishes – they’re just so pretty – ornamental even. In my other life, where I have a completely beautiful and tidy bedroom with a white French style dressing table (just to the right of the dressing room) on my dove grey carpet (with corresponding bed linen – 600... Read More

Dior Christmas Beauty 2014 Part 1

Dior Christmas Beauty 2014 Part 1

Some serious treats coming our way for Dior Christmas Beauty 2014! The look is called Golden Shock so it’s no surprise that the range focusses on shimmering golden facets – there is a LOT of shimmer! Dior Golden Shock Pressed Powder (£49) is an illuminating powder and also comes in a pink-gold shade and is... Read More
Fendi Furiosa

Fendi Furiosa

Woo! There’s a name – Fendi Furiosa. Despite such a strong name, the fragrance is very feminine – it’s powerful with some big blossomy notes in the form of gardena and jasmine absolute, and the centrepiece, the Violaciocca flower (scented stocks). Like the name suggests, Fendi Furiosa isn’t for wallflowers! It’s unapologetically sexy and meant... Read More
London Beauty Queen & Sew Lomax Collaboration

London Beauty Queen & Sew Lomax Collaboration

Ah, I have been dying to post about the London Beauty Queen & Sew Lomax Collaboration – it’s always a bit of a thrill when blogging friends add a branch to their tree and this is a particularly beautiful example.  Sew Lomax has grown hugely since I first saw it last year – it’s gone from... Read More
Toni & Guy Matthew Williamson Set

Toni & Guy Matthew Williamson Set

I’ve got to confess that I find it really hard to get enthusiastic about hair gifts – I’d be nothing short of disappointed if I got shampoo for Christmas. However, a straw poll of friends says that hair kits are a really popular present – who knew? I guess if you are going the hair... Read More
Chanel No.5 Bath Soap

Chanel No.5 Bath Soap

As far as necessity goes, Chanel No.5 Bath Soap won’t tick any boxes at £22 a bar, but in terms of want, it’s pretty high up the ladder of luxury loveliness. Chanel No.5 is still my favourite of the Chanel fragrances – it was one of my very first ‘grown-up’ perfumes and so I’m attached... Read More

BritishBeautyBlogger & Marks & Spencer Beauty

It’s the most ridiculous prospect – reviewing my own range, so I’m not going to! At the end of the day, it will stand or fall by your reviews, not mine, so instead I’m just going to explain a little about the products in a series of posts. Starting with the Nail Collection, above, it’s... Read More
