Friday Face: Illamasqua and MAC

My new foundation FINALLY arrived this week, after a long delay thanks to the Royal Mail strike, so I am at least wearing some makeup today, unlike last Friday! I’m wearing: The usual: Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer NARS Orgasm…

Friday Face: Dainty Doll foundation revisited

No photo for today’s Friday Face, because my skin just isn’t fit to be seen at the moment. Truly. The culprit can be seen above you: it’s the Nicola Roberts’ ‘Dainty Doll’ foundation I reviewed back in April. I don’t…

The Gunpowder Plot (to drive Amber mad…)

The early hours of Thursday morning, about 1am. All is quiet in the house – even Rubin, for once. Suddenly, though, we are all jerked rudely out of sleep by… BANG! WHIZZ! BANGBANGBANG! “That better be war breaking out,” I…

Almost Ill

As my mother would say, I seem to be “hanging” with some kind of illness. This is Scottish-speak for “Why, I fear I may be about to become ill, but it hasn’t quite happened yet.” While I wait for it…

Friday Fragrance: What perfume are you wearing today?

In a change to our regularly scheduled Friday Face feature, I thought I’d be nosey in a different way this week, and as you all what perfume you’re wearing instead! Today I’m wearing my absolute favourite fragrance: Jean Paul Gaultier’s…

Review: Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! mascara

I don’t often get my hopes up about new mascaras these days. Oh, don’t get me wrong: I’m still more than happy with my usual Lancome and Fiberwig combo, but each new mascara I review usually leaves me feeling decidedly…

RoC Retin-Ox™ Wrinkle Correxion range

There’s been a lot of buzz in the beauty world about RoC’s new Retin-Ox Wrinkle Correxion range, and it’s not hard to work out why: the range claims to reduce wrinkles by 30% in 8 weeks, and that’s going to…

The One Where We Go to Blair Castle

So, Autumn hasn’t been as bad as I’d feared. Not so far, anyway. I realise I’ve just cursed it by saying that, and I’ll wake up tomorrow to ten feet of snow, but for now: not so bad. It’s been…

Review: Boots 17 Va Va Voom Volume Mascara

A mascara called “Va Va Voom” – sounds right up my street, doesn’t it? This is Boots 17’s latest release, and it promises to deliver drama, volume and a formula that allows you to apply as many coats as you…

Tetris Legs

Anyone play Tetris? I’ve been playing it a lot this week. A LOT. I’ve been playing Tertris on my phone, in fact, every time my laptop has crashed and had to be rebooted. Which has been… A LOT. I’m seeing…

Road Trip! Glamis Castle, Angus

I know, it’s ironic, isn’t it – an entire post just crammed with photos, mere days after I whine about people stealing my images! Like I said, though, I’m not going to stop posting photos because of these idiots, although…

Friday Face: Autumn browns

You know those days when you wake up, and no matter how carefully you do your makeup, or how spot-free your skin is, you still end up looking like ass all day long? I’m having one of THOSE days. No…

Friday Photo: It’s Chico time!

This is not Rubin. I know it looks like him, but one thing you should always remember when dealing with Rubin is that Rubin is NOT A POODLE. That right there? Is a poodle. His name was Chico, and no,…
