Soleil Tan De Chanel

I have gazed longingly at the Soleil Tan De Chanel so many times but never taken the plunge, my main concern was that it would be too warm or orange for my skin tone. But after watching the very talented Olivia Jane MUA do my best friends makeup for her wedding day in the summer…

Zoeva Luxury Set Vol. 1

How stunning are these Zoeva brushes? I have heard so much about Zoeva but other than ordering online it’s not a brand I have seen in Bangkok so when I stumbled across their counter in Sephora in Singapore to say I was a little excited is an understatement. I knew I had to try something…

Charlotte Tilbury Part III

No visit back to the UK is complete for me now without a quick stop at the Charlotte Tilbury counter. We had so little time at home it wasn’t looking like it was going to happen but the night before we flew back to Bangkok I managed to find 20 minutes to pop into Selfridges (queue huge…

If it’s Good Enough for Kylie…

Another bandwagon that’s taken me way too long to jump onto…MAC Velvet Teddy. This lipstick has been made famous by the plumped pout of Miss Kylie Jenner and is a beautiful matte nude brown colour. It has been selling out for months and, to be honest, I wasn’t sure if the shade would suit my…

All Rise: Beauty Blender

I am so late to this party I feel ashamed. Genuinely. But I am so in love with my newly acquired Beauty Blender I just had to do a post. The Beauty Blender has been a blogger/vlogger favourite for a long time but I hadn’t jumped on the bandwagon, I don’t know why, I just…

Review ~ Sephora Pro Brushes

I have been needing to add some brushes to my stash for a while but a few things had been delaying my purchase. Firstly, I haven’t been able to find a wide variety of decent brushes here in Bangkok, we have MAC and Sephora but that is about it. Granted I could buy online but…

The Birthday Philosophy.

Some would describe my husband as brave maybe even foolish. I would say he knows me well, when, for my birthday last month he presented me with a goody box of beauty products from Sephora, primarily philosophy, the main event being their anti-ageing ‘Time in a Bottle‘. Since turning 30 last year I have definitely…

The Cut ~ Cleansing Oil

I used to use face wipes, then I discovered Caroline Hirons and my regime was quickly overhauled; face wipes binned and oils, balms and acids purchased. I was chatting with some friends at the weekend who shuddered at the thought of my seemingly ridiculously tedious pre-bedtime cleansing routine compared to their uber convenient face wipes. Truth…

The Verdict ~ Roller Lash

Well, after a good month or so of using the Benefit Roller Lash mascara, as promised, my verdict is in. For me, sometimes, it can take a little time to warm up to a new mascara, but I can safely say no amount of warming is going to get me to love this product. I had…

Weekend Pickups

I went shopping last weekend with the intention of ticking off some bits from my Christmas present shopping list…that would be the list of gifts for other people not for myself. Well, my shop wasn’t overly successful, I bought one present for someone and accidentally, a whole host of goodies for myself. Oops. Some of my acquisitions were…

Oh, Charlotte…

As I was winding up my life to leave the UK the Charlotte Tilbury makeup launch was the hot topic of conversation amongst bloggers and makeup fans alike. I left for Bangkok before I managed to try any bits so on my October trip home, hitting the new CT stand in Selfridges, Manchester was high…

Duty Free & Home

I did have a list of things to pick up when I was back in the UK but of course, I also bought a few things that took my fancy when I was perusing the shelves of Boots and duty-free! Here’s a bit of a rundown of what I brought back with me. Clinique CC Cream…
