Four eyeshadow pots by Ciaté that have made me put that eyeshadow palette away!

It’s quite rare these days that I step away from an eyeshadow palette. It’s not the colour or the pigment that wins me over but the pure convenience of having a selection of colours at your fingertips that you can mix and experiment with. However, when I look at a palette, it is only two or three colours that hit the pan and more than often, the majority of the

Having first dabbled in gloss lipsticks and later attempted wearing matte shades unsuccessfully, I was firmly against matte lipsticks. Formulas weren’t that advanced and everything I tried would

New Year, new you – are you falling for that cliché too?

Yes, it’s a new year, but not so dissimilar to the previous year (minus the fact that it’s 2017 not 2016) and well, as much as I would have like to have morphed into

Personalisation at its best at Boots!

Boots, our favourite high street drug store, has pulled it out of the bag this year by not only providing their stores and online site as a one-stop-shop for all your beauty needs, but by bringing a new experience of personalisation to life for the first time this Christmas! And I’m definitely not referring to the personalisation of the printed T-shirt kind. From personalising makeup bags to body butter tubs,
