REVIEW | Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette

IMG_8930 (1) Gwen is synonymous with cool. In my world Gwen is also synonymous with teenage heartbreak, oh yes I was that teenager you heard crying her eyes out to Don’t Speak after a boy I liked for 3 whole days kissed someone called Vicky at the local disco (*rolls on the floor laughing at that memory). Thankfully my taste in boys improved somewhat albeit after a few disasters ha, but I remained a Gwen fan. I mean she sampled Maria from The Sound of Music, the woman just ticks all my boxes.

Anyway back to the BEAUTEOUS palette… Continue Reading

Instant Results!
with Murad Eye Cream

Hi guys, I’m back! I have a mountain of products and treatments I want to blog about so be prepared to get sick of me. Hope you all are enjoying Christmas!

I’m at an age where I am a little concerned about eye crinkles. I have spent much of 2104 testing my way through eye creams (over-view to follow). I have found some good ones but generally a lot of duds. I haven’t found my holy grail eye product so I still get a little over-enthusiastic when a brand launches a new product that contains the latest magic powers.

The latest offering is from Murad. The Instant Radiance Eye Cream is said to instantly erase dark circles. I of course needed to try it. Murad is generally a brand I trust. I haven’t tried too many products of theirs but of those I have tried, I liked.

So what does this guy do and did it do the trick?

Oskia The Nutritional Skincare Angle

I have been keeping beauty secrets! I think it’s clear I love a bit of skincare but I don’t know if you guys know how interested I am in holistic nutrition. It has been something I have been reading up on for years and a big part of my life. So I was really excited when I heard about OSKIA skincare arrival to our shores. If you haven’t heard of the brand they create nutritional skincare, that has been proven to work. I have fallen hard. Continue Reading

Treatment Review | VIORA REACTION Skin Tightening, Cellulite & Stretcmarks

Over the past year or so I have been starting to think about anti-ageing products and treatments. I want to preserve what I have for as long as possible, don’t we all. I was invited to Renaissance Laser & Skin Clinic  to try their new Viora Reaction treatment.

Reaction

How it works

Viora delivers radio frequency energy to the underlying layers of the skin. As we age collagen fibres weaken; everything from sun exposure to smoking and stress has a damaging affect. Viora stimulates the production of collage and elastin but protects the surface of the skin, this means to redness, rashes or peeling. Continue Reading

IMG_1869

I know I have been a naughty blogger and haven’t posted in ages. I had some site issues combined with some holidays and well time got away from me. The good news is that I have been testing heap loads of new products in that time and have engaged in a spot of shopping, ok so “a spot” is an understatement but you knew that! I have a lot to share and have been preparing blog posts like the good little obsessive beauty junkie I am. So enjoy today’s makeup musings and I shall be back in the morning to tell you about an amazing lifting treatment and something called ‘the Cinderella effect’. Disney princess’s completely grab my attention.

Now, to the important stuff! Continue Reading

NEW |Heavy Metal Loose Glitter & Adhesive from Urban Decay ♥ Photos & Review

Urban-Decay-Heavy-Metal-Loose-Glitter

I have a love/hate relationship with glitter. I’m drawn to it like a moth to a flame but I loathe mess. If you are a fan of glitter then you will love these new Heavy Metal Glitters from Urban Decay. The glitters came about when Urban Decay developed their Bondage Weightless Makeup Adhesive. The product held so well that they decided to work on loose glitters that would actually stay put.
