  • A Sweet Tooth for I Heart Chocolate Palettes

    I came across Make-up Revolution quite my accident. Sure it had been on the fringes of my beauty purview for some time, but it was an afternoon swatching their lip velvets in Superdrug that first got me hooked. And when…

    The Graduate

    To say I have a penchant for things that look like other things would be an understatement. Among this; bags that look like champagne bottles, shirts that looks like sailor suits and dresses, dresses that look like graduation gowns. I…

    Easy on the Eyes with Eyeko

    Eyeko’s make-up has a bit of a cult following. Not just mild enthusiasim, but full on feverent devotion. A favourite with make-up artists, celebrities and bloggers, it’s one of those brands I’ve always approached with mild caution because nine times…

    Finding the Perfect Base with Kiko

    I like the base, base, base, the flawless foundation base.  While some bloggers can’t get enough of blushes, eyeshadow palettes or even lipsticks, I’ve always been all about that base (okay I’m sorry, last one.)  Foundations, concealers and powders are…
