New crush: Make-Up Factices

New crush: Make-Up Factices

I’m such a collector.. it’s obviously in my genes, but my new collecting crush is for make-up factices. I haven’t got very far with only two, but give me time. A factice is something artificial, and above is a palette exactly the same as the real thing but… …it’s not real. The make-up inside is... Read More
B. Complete Long Lasting Nail Polish in Innocent

B. Complete Long Lasting Nail Polish in Innocent

This is one of the colours from the B. range called Innocence. It’s a long last formula and a perfect shade for me.. I’ve had it on for three days and while there is some wear starting to show on the very edge of the nail, I’m impressed with its longevity so far. Normally, polish... Read More

  This trio of glosses for £4.99 really caught my eye in Next today so I bought them, but now they’re giving me the creeps a little bit because they look kind of too real…. *shudders*. Read More
Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin

Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin

I always inwardly (ok, outwardly as well) cringe when I get a Serge Lutens press release – ever since I had one that said “tick tock” for a whole side of A4 paper, and nothing else, I get a sense of foreboding when one appears! The one that accompanies the new fragrance is, well, not... Read More
