About

  • About Me
    What do I know about me? Hmm. Good question. Probably a better one to ask others who know me, rather than ask me myself.
  • My Interests
    I'm a huge fan of all things girlie. Cosmetics, jewelry, clothes, shoes, hats, perfume, bags. I'm not biased. If it calls my name, and it falls into one of the above categories, I want it!
  • My Occupation
    Looking after myself to the best of my ability. Not easy given the circumstances!
  • My Beauty Product Wish List
    If I started a beauty wish list, there would be no ending. What I can do instead, is to tell you about the types of things I love:
    Rose scented perfumes.
    Greens, browns and purples for my eyes. Peaches, and pinks for my cheeks. Bronzers too.
    Red, nude or pink lips.
  • Country
    I'm 100% dyed in the wool, born and bred English woman, and very proud be so, I'm now an Expat!
  • Car I Drive
    Chevy Cobalt
  • My Favorite Movies
    If it makes people scared to death, I generally really like it.
  • Favorite Music
    Ludacris, Dre Dre, Eminem, Usher. I tend to be a hip hop, rap and pop girl all the way.
  • Favorite Books
    I love books. WWII, disease, crime, the inquisition, history, slavery, are some of my faves. I enjoy fiction. Ken Follett, Martina Cole, Lynda La Plante, Robert McCammon,etc.
  • My Favorite Makeup Brands
    A bit on brands: when it comes to perfumes(as long as it's Rose scented) any. That was easy!
    Cosmetics: MAC, Smashbox, Bobbi Brown, Stila, Paula Dorf, Lorac, Studio Gear, Prescriptives.
  • One Interesting Fact About Me
    For a Brit I'm very lightly travelled (12 country's,) over here I'd be considered as well travelled.
  1. Really? Huh. You learn something new every day. I've never tried E.L.F before, but I will now!
  2. I've heard a lot about this brand, but assumed it would be completely out of my price range. I was floored when I went to their website. What a selection! And what amazing colours! And more to the point, what amazing prices! I have to get me some of this brand when I get some money.i can't wait to try them. Thanks for all the replies!
  3. Now this seems bizarre to me, considering the colours That normally work for my skin tone. My friend gave me some foundation(it was an emergency!) and it actually worked. It's bizarre, because its a lot darker than I'd normally use. It's by MAC and its their Light Medium. Can you explain why it worked for me, because I can't figure it out for love nor money!

    Coastal Scents brushes

    I received the today and they are amazing. Well worth every single penny, and believe me, they hardly cost a thing. I think I paid a total of $20. If I can figure out how to post pics on here, I'll make sure I post the ones I've taken of these brushes!
  5. What I'd like to find out is the various colors in foundations, concealers and loose powders in all brands compatible with my skin tone. I hate to say it, but the girls at my local makeup store seem to know even less than me about makeup, and have chosen wrong on more than one occasion. Here's the colours that I know work well: Concealers: Maybelline Age Rewind - 10/Fair Foundations: Studio Gear Dual Identity Mineral Wet/Dry - Cream Lorac Porefection - PF2/Light Bare Minerals - Fairly Light Fair (I mixed the two together) This brand is no longer compatible with my skin. Loose Powders: Studio Gear - Light Unfortunately for me, I live in a small town with no Sephora anywhere near me. I miss Sephora so much! I don't really like to buy cosmetics over the net, unless I know that im getting the right colours for me. Store-wise I have an Ulta, and a Belk. Not the best selection, I know. Hopefully, by the telling you the brands and colours that do work, will give you enough information. Also, I have combination skin, oily around the nose area, with a tendency for the skin to flake. My forehead is also oily. I have occasional breakouts, I am prone to whiteheads(if anyone knows how to get rid of those things, I'll be eternally in your debt!) I'm also prone to sweating, gross I know. I h ad a hysterectomy when I was 35, and that's the cause! I really love the look of mineral makeup, but I can't wear any brand that has the 'bismuth oxychloride' in it, as this is the cause of really bad irritation for me. I look forward to your help, thanks!

    Coastal Scents brushes

    I posted in another thread that I was in dire need of some new brushes. Coastal Scents was having a sale on, so I decided to take the plunge and purchase a bunch of their brushes. They're so cheap that I really lose nothing by trying them. All of the reviews I've seen of them are fantastic, and I can't wait to get them. Here's the ones I ordered: Destiny eyeliner brush $1.17 (2 of these) Classic large eyeshadow brush $1.49 (2 of these) Classic dome eyeshadow brush $1.77 (2 of these) Classic angle eyeshadow brush $1.17 (4 of these) Classic blender crease brush $1.49 (2 of these) Classic pointed blender brush $1.77 (just the one!) Classic detail round brush $1.77 (1) Classic angle liner, medium $1.17 (2) Classic angle liner, large $1.17(2) Classic fan $2.97(just one. I've never used a fan brush before, should be interesting. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!) I thought I'd see how I go with these brushes. I ordered them all with natural bristles, I don't like synthetic for some reason. If I like these, then I'll order some face brushes, foundation brushes, etc. For the price, you can't go wrong.if they turn out to be a bunch of crap, no harm , no foul. I'm hoping though, that all the reviews I read are accurate! Anyway, I'll keep you all posted.

    Anyone else had a problem with mineral makeup?

    I've been advised by some ladies at Ulta to try a couple of other brands, and so far so good. The new ones I'm trying are Lorac (I don't think this is a mineral makeup, but It doesn't matter) Porefection baked perfecting powder, and Studio Gear Dual Identity Mineral wet/dry. They are both around $27 each for 9 grams, both have nice coverage. I like them. I don't like the coverage as much as the Bare Escentuals, but it's really nice to put on makeup that doesn't irritate my skin!

    Anyone else had a problem with mineral makeup?

    I think I'm going to have to look into the Meow Minerals 19ten20 mentioned. I do like mineral makeup apart from the burning. I love the way it goes on. I love the coverage and that you can look flawless whilst at the same time appearing like you don't have much makeup on.

    Pay day soon, and I have a dilemma...

    I don't have any pics, as I'm waiting on some of the goodies. But I ended up buying some flats from Coach, some clothes from Buckle, some franken stuff from TKB Trading. I also bought some nail polish, and some cosmetics. Pics to come!

    My shoe collection! Whats in yours?

    Gorgeous collection! I wish I could wear those heels! Unfortunately, those days are long gone for me, so if I want to wear anything with a bit of height it has to be a wedge.
