Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel

Hi Darlins As you all know I am just a little bit obsessed with cleansing, so when I was offered the chance to test out the Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel I jumped at the chance, I had read good things about this product and wanted to see if it was all just marketing hype. Having been a best seller and  available in Asia for the last 25 years it is now available in the UK, Asian women are famous for being more into skincare than cosmetics and this product was even quoted in… Read more

Rimmel Super Curler 24HR Mascara | Kate Dare to Go Nude 42

Hiya Gorgeous Firstly I have to say that Rimmel is a brand that I have not used for many many years, I don't know why, in my youth it was the number one go to, but for me it seems to have just got lost in the crowd.......well no more ! Largely due to my 13 year old Grandaughter and TV advertising !!  "Nan (we) have to try the new Rimmel Mascara "   note the royal we ?   I am thinking no actually I don't *have* to try it. But as always I gave in, and *we* picked it u… Read more

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator | Ballerina

Hi Darlins The highlight of my day  ( get my clever pun ? )  was trying out this Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in the shade Ballerina from Laura Geller.  I know a lot of ladies my age probably won't have used a highlighter before, we tend to stick with what we know and not trouble ourselves with the whole contour / highlight thing and stick with a bit of blusher, and that's ok if that's what you are happy with, but I urge you to try something new, I'm not saying we need… Read more

Laura Geller Dramalash Maximum Volumising Mascara | Inkredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner

Hi Darlins Laura Geller probably better known in the USA than the UK, is a brand that needs massive praise, if you like the whole full on cake face, this is not the brand for you Laura Geller is subtle, quality and classy, nothing at all like me ! I do have quite a bit from Laura Geller to bring you over the next few weeks, but wanted to start with eyes, I am such a mascara snob it's not even funny, nothing to do with price as I love what works, not what costs most. My first attempt … Read more

Dr Perricone No Lipgloss Lipgloss

Hiya Darlins  this is a seriously cool product if you are a lover of a natural face look, I have previously posted about another product from this range the No blush blush  from Dr Perricone, now here we have the No lipgloss lipgloss. I am a huge lover of glosses and prefer them to lipsticks for a softer look, but I do like to feel as though I am wearing make up, so this came as a bit of a shock to me, as it claims to be anti ageing blah blah, I was REALLY cynical, but very pleasantly s… Read more

Perricone MD No Blush Blush

Hiya Darlins This time of year it's easy to look a bit jaded and tired, no tan, no healthy glow, instead of that gorgeous rosy glow children have when it's cold, we just look, well, quite frankly haunted lol. This is where this unusual product comes in from the famous Dr Nick Pericone range.  I want to say blusher but fear that may be under valuing it, it is named No Blush Blush as it really does give a flush of natural looking colour to the cheeks, it actually makes your skin … Read more

NEW Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All Over Miracle Oil.

Hiya Darlins Yesterday I had possibly the most stressful day I have had in a long time, and got home totally and utterly drained, you know the kind of tiredness that makes you want to not speak to anyone.

What's Your Blogging Agenda ?

Hi Darlins this post is really for all the bloggers out there, I don't suppose it will be of much interest to anyone else :) I keep seeing various posts / statuses that quite frankly baffle me, there are lots of various little sayings floating around that are specifically used by bloggers, ( of all ages )  before I start getting anyones back up, this is not a criticism of the way anyone works, it is merely an observation on my part. So, really here's the thing ?  why do you blog … Read more
