It takes quite a lot for me to write about a hand cream because I don’t often find them that exciting. And because I am addicted to my body products, I find that I usually use those on my hands too and it is fairly adequate. However, I have completely fallen for the The Body Shop Honeymania Hand Cream because it is such a delight to use.

It seems I’m on a personal mission at the moment to pack my makeup drawer till the point of overflow – after my M&S purchase (post here) and this Max Factor badboy I’m now unable to close the drawer. Great, I think it might be time for a clear out. But after a quick dash round Lifestyle, I ended up with this mascara making its way into a Lifestyle bag…

trip to maybelline

When something big happens in my life, I treat myself to a ‘commemorative’ lipstick. It’s true. I finish my last exams at college and end up walking through the checkouts with Rimmel’s Summer 2011 Collection in my hand, I graduate and a Faces Go Chic Lipstick is mine, every Diwali I pick myself up a Revlon lipstick. OK perhaps the last example is a little tenuous, but you see where I’m going here – I like any old excuse to pick up a lipstick. With my brother’s impending plans to fly the nest and move out (which has rapidly swooped into a slot next month) and my Dad’s Birthday (which was last week, eek), I figured that was enough justification to treat myself to a Maybelline lipstick or two…

First Taste of Marks & Spencer

Here’s a little snapshot of my dressing table at 6 am this morning – I’m sure everyone in my house really appreciated me clicking and flashing away at the time. Oops. But there was a reason behind my early morn photo shoot as I wanted to quickly get a snap of my newest purchase before it got all dirty. For a while I’d been contemplating a purchase of some M&S cosmetics so I finally went in on last Wednesday and was served by a lovely lady on the cosmetics section who talked me through all their bits and bobs and I ended up walking away with 1 thing nicely packaged up in a M&S’ bag…

Rule number one of makeup addicts anonymous – don’t ever visit a Lakme counter unsupervised. Here’s my justification for the visit. I’ve actually tried a fair amount of their base makeup products, much with resounding success and an exclusively Lakme makeup tutorial has been on my ‘to-do’ list for a while. But I needed to pick up some finishing touches, so I somehow ended up with two skincare products, an eyeshadow, a blush and a full bloody face of makeup on due to a counter makeover as I joyfully skipped out of Lifestyle the other day.

So if you ever felt that although dry shampoo does a great job, that it might not be doing quite so much good to the bounce of your hair, then say hello to Bed Head by TIGI Sugar Dust. This is one of the latest addition to Bed Head’s rather full-to-bursting portfolio of dry shampoos and it promises to deliver twice the benefits of regular dry shampoo.

Matrix is a product pool that I’ve always wanted to dive into. Distinctively American, simple and sophisticated, luxe yet inviting, founded by Arnie Miller back in 1980. I used to see it whenever I’ve walked past a store or salon but never indulged. That was until the other day…
