Lottie London Lip Kit

Since I had brain surgery in late January, I've been even more housebound than usual. I'm managed two short outings with my family since then and on both occasions I test drove this Lip Kit in the shade #TBT from Lottie London cosmetics. It has been waiting patiently for it's moment for quite some time… Continue reading Lottie London Lip Kit

Metallic Red Lips: Jouer

I've been pretty quiet on the blog front lately; my broken brain has been torturing me even more than usual. This has severely limited the already meagre time I had available for wearing makeup and reviewing products. Now that I've finally taken this lipstick out for a couple of test drives, I'm ready to tell… Continue reading Metallic Red Lips: Jouer

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Swatches

I've been really struggling to post lately; even my weekly Sunday beauty post has fallen by the wayside.

Weeks… Continue reading A New Nail Shape and Bargain Polish

I'm very much enjoying this Colorstay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat from Revlon so I though… Continue reading Revlon Diamond Top Coat

Jouer Liquid Lipstick and Lip Topper

On the topic of liquid lipsticks, I seem to have gone from one extreme to the other; from not being remotely interested in them to owning several and rarely reaching for anything else. The brand I'm posting about today is one that has been popping up all over Instagram and after seeing so many lovely… Continue reading Jouer Liquid Lipstick and Lip Topper

Clinique Quickliner for Eyes

When I find myself repurchasing something for the 3rd or 4th time, it feels only right to devote a post to the product in question. The Clinique Quickliner for Eyes found its way into my birthday beauty haul (Part 1 & Part 2) and I've owned it several times before. This isn't a super exciting product… Continue reading Clinique Quickliner for Eyes
