Back in the days, Urban Decay eye shadow palettes were a big deal in the beauty world. I remember how I used to buy every single Book Of Shadows. Even though I don’t even use them now, I could never give them away. I still have my Alice Book Of Shadows somewhere among my other “treasures”.
I am sure, you know that the brand brought out a new Alice Through the Looking Glass palette to celebrate the launch of a new film which I am definitely seeing when it is in the theatres.
If that is something you are interested in – I suggest you get it as soon as possible, as it will be a sell out. The palette is available from Selfridges for £43 and Ulta for $60 already and is all kinds of gorgeous with a very colourful designRead More

Regular readers know that I am a hand cream fanatic, and I have written so many features on the ones I like during these seven years. The latest post was on Aveeno and Neal’s Yard Remedies, along with cheaper alternatives from Nivea and Garnier. Here is also a selection of my top 5 hand creams (which probably should be revisited).
And here are my latest discoveries…
& Other Stories Couture Carnival Hand Lotion
I am so in love with this lotion that I have bought two bottles! The beautiful minimalistic Scandinavian design, the convenient pump, the light and non-greasy but, at the same time, moisturizing texture. And the smell. Oh, the smell of it!
I mean, you can’t go wrong with with something described as “rainbowRead More
Don’t we all want radiant glowing complexion for Spring/Summer? We want it all year round but after those dull grey winter months, especially. This is why the brands are brining out so many products from this category. Here are four new ones that are worth your attention.

Max Factor Glossfinity nail polish in 85 Cerise was an impulse purchase but I love it so much that I recently bought a second bottle, as I’ve used up the first one. And that says a lot, considering how many nail polishes I have, and red ones in particular.
It is a gorgeous glossy warm toned red which looks opaque even with one coat. It is like the coolest accessory for your nails, it brightens up everything. As dramatic as it sounds – Cerise makes me feel incredible, and I never want to be without it.
I have mentioned it so many times but somehow never posted a proper swatch, so here it is. (I am also wearing it here)
As I’ve already said, it looks great even with one coat, this formulaRead More
