Clinique’s BIY pigment drops

These landed on shelves this month, I am a bit behind on my blogging as I ended up in hospital and was recovering for a while. But these Blend It Yourself pigment drops are kind of magic. You add a drop of the pigment to your moisturiser of choice and it becomes your foundation. One…

Les Beiges

Les Beiges from Chanel was launched a few years ago and it just keeps getting better and better. It all started with the now iconic healthy glow makeup, which has an SPF of 15 but most importantly it protects you against all forms of UV rays, although 15 is not quite high enough, there is…

Teint Idole Ultra Wear

The original formula of this iconic foundation is one of my favourites, when I teach in Beauty Bootcamp I get most of the clients to try it out as it perfect for people who like a fuller coverage but you can build it from sheer coverage to a more full coverage. But the best thing…

Givenchy’s Teint Couture Balm

As you all know I think nothing is more beautiful than simple natural skin. The good people at Givenchy make this dream a reality with their Teint Couture Balm. Firstly this is a balm for the skin which glides onto your skin. It does not have any greasy oils inside and when you apply it…

Synchro Skin Glow

Last year Shiseido launched Synchro Skin foundation, it was one of my favourite launches all year. The texture is divine with perfect coverage that is build-able for anyone who like a more full coverage foundation. It also has magic inside…….. It adapts to each skin tone individually so your perfect match is really easy to…

CHANEL you’re really spoiling us……

Chanel is the epitome of luxury. From runway shows to lipsticks the brand is always desirable to everyone. Unfortunately the couture is out of most peoples price range but we can all have a bit of Chanel in our lives with their makeup. Since January 2016 Lucia Pica, an Italian makeup artist, has been at…

My favourite foundation

I am fickle when it comes to my favourite makeup products. Today my favourite eye pencils may be from Tom Ford, tomorrow they may be from Bobbi Brown. But for a while now I have been in love with Estee Lauders Double Wear Makeup To Go. It is the perfect texture foundation, light but covers…

Invisible Fluid Makeup

It’s rare that I try different foundations, since I started doing makeup about 800 years ago I have always used Face and Body from MAC. On a recent makeup shopping trip I decided to buy Estée Lauder’s Invisible Fluid Makeup. And can I tell you I think it’s perfect, it gives you great face! And the…

Clarins BB Cream

Clarins have launched their version on the BB Cream, and let me tell you it’s very exciting! It is the perfect mix of makeup and skin-care. It will revitalise your skin, protect it and it will also even your skin tone and that’s just the skin-care part! The makeup part is beautiful, it is an…

Teint Visionnaire

So Ladies, just in time for Valintines Day Lancôme are launching a very exciting new foundation. If you remember I wrote about Visionnaire Serum in December, one of my favourite serums, well they have added the serum to a foundation. Could a foundation be any better??? What is new about the product is that it…

NYC Foundations

Home Have you tried NYC’s foundations yet? I have been amazed again by the brand, I talked about their blushers in December and I was mega impressed with them but I had not tried the foundations out properly until now so I couldn’t give them a real review. I have tried them and they are…

The end of foundation?

Good morning people. Over the past two years we have been inundated with the launch of the BB Cream, which is being hailed as the all singing all dancing answer to our skins needs. Some brands say their BB cream replaces serums, moisturiser, SPF and foundation, imagine how much money we would save! For me…
