Photo credit – I only recently found out that the best time to start using an IPL is during the Autumn. The reason being is that many people say that the laser works much better on your natural skin tone (when it’s free from any sort of tan). You might have been lucky to get some last minute sun, but Winter is also a good place to start IPL. Now I know what you’re thinking, I never shave my legs in the Winter, why would I? But it’s actually been proven that you receive a number of benefits to your skin… View Post

As you’ll probably have guessed, I have a bit of an obsession for lipsticks, particularly the high end variety. I’ve actually never tried any Dior makeup before, so when I saw the Rouge Dior lipstick launch on John Lewis, I couldn’t pass off the opportunity to add them to my collection.

I like the navy blue packaging on the… View Post

Basically this is just a post declaring my love for Nars blushers and pretty much Nars in general. I’ve always had a soft spot for Nars, I’m not sure whether it’s their simple (but beautiful) packaging or their wide range of pigmented products.

They say a scent can hold a thousand memories and evoke a number of emotions. Penhaligon’s understand the power of a scent and have been on a fragrant adventure since the Victorian era. Their decadent scents are so good, that they have been awarded two Royal Warrants, recognised for their personal service and true dedication to perfume. When I first sprayed the Oud De Nil, I was taken aback by how unusual and beautiful it was. It’s nothing like I’ve ever smelt before and really did remind me of the middle east, with their exquisite bustling markets and woody desert wind.  … View Post

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you’ll know anything shiny (particularly of the rose gold variety), is always on my wishlist. As always, I found myself on another beauty website, this time being TAM beauty, and splurged on a few items including the Makeup Revolution Precision oval brushes contour set. So thought I would post my review on the blog, as I think these are going to be popular in the beauty community.   Rose gold Makeup Revolution oval brushes The oval brush is pretty new to the beauty scene, at least for people who don’t have… View Post
