1. The Work of Fiction is Skin-deep

Beauty products and cosmetics tried and reviewed. I can be hard to please and am brutally honest, but when I find something I like, I want everyone to know about it.

  • Too Faced Candlelight Revisited
    on May 15, 2012
    I have to say I love a multitasking product, especially at this time of year when you might decide to have an impromptu weekend getaway or a day at the beach turns into an evening of drinks with friends. Having something in my bag that instantly brig...
  • Could Lip Stains be the Answer?
    on May 1, 2012 in Kissable lips
    Of late, I have been getting more and more into lip colour. Gone are the days of barely there gloss and a dramatic dark eye being the only option for a night out. Typically, I would wear more discrete eye makeup during the day anyway, but for night i...
  • Uriage Fluid Extreme Cream
    on Apr 22, 2012 in Summer Essentials
    It might seem a tad early to be thinking about SPF and sun protection, but I can honestly say this is something I use 365 days a year. Somehow, the risk associated with sun damage just doesn't seem worth it and so, it is has become an essential part...
  • HG 2000 Calorie is true holy grail
    on Apr 7, 2012
    As the title says, Max Factor's 2000 calorie dramatic volume mascara in black/brown truly is my current HG mascara. It gives my lashes the perfect dramatic look with lots of volume, fanned out fluttery lashes. Even today, I thought I might have gone...
  • Once, Twice, Three Times an Acne Free Lady
    on Apr 3, 2012
    Last year my skin was possibly at the worst it has been in my entire life. Having gone through the usual spotty teens followed by a relatively good run in my twenties, I was faced with skin in my early thirties that seemed to have multiple personalit...
  • Wedding Outfit OptionsWith a wedding coming up in July (not mine;p), I am faced with having  to shop for those less practical of items, the wedding guest ensemble. So, already I am looking online and trying to get ideas together for something I can wear again, b...
  • MAC Face & Body Pales in Portugal
    on Mar 25, 2012
    Recently the weather has been gorgeous here in Portugal and spring clothes have been slowly, but surely making a reappearance. With this comes the dreaded skirt. Legs have to be perfectly defuzzed, my Venus makes short work of that. Pedicures have to...

  • St Paddy's Day in Portugal
    on Mar 17, 2012
    Since it's not a holiday in Portugal most people would think I was a bit mad if I were to don a full-on St Paddy's day get-up complete with 'Kiss me I'm Irish' t-shirt and oversized green hat. Therefore, I have settled on my shamrock socks, which are...
  • M.I.A
    on Feb 5, 2012
    I must apologise for the lack of blog posts of late. Since Christmas, I have possibly had the worst few weeks in memory. Just everything seems to have been going wrong. I won't go into too many details. Moving house for the second time in 6 months (n...
  • My Favourite Products from 2011
    on Dec 30, 2011
    The following are items that found regular use and love in my routine, some were used prior, others were discovered (by me at least) in 2011. I wholeheartedly recommend trying them in 2012.  NYX Cream Blush in Natural 1. Foundation:MAC Pr...
  • Busy as a Bee in Preparations for NYE
    on Dec 29, 2011
    It's official, I've gone mad. Well, that's what my faithful mut Micki is thinking as she stares at her mistress in puzzlement. I'm sitting here, in front of the laptop, with honey smeared all over my face. Now, I am hoping my boyfriend doesn't arrive...
  • Christmas Eve Eve
    on Dec 23, 2011
    Well, it's almost here and while Christmas means different things to different people, to me it's all about enjoying the simple things with those nearest and dearest. More often than not we can't be with all of those that mean the most, but inevitabl...
  • Last Minute Christmas Shopping
    on Dec 14, 2011 in Online Shopping
    Image sourced from Shopping for pressies can, at times, seem like the nightmare before Christmas. Stressed out shoppers, long lists and longer queues can sometimes take the joy out of what should really be a time for family and l...
  • Sigma - Travel Brush Kit Revisited
    on Nov 25, 2011
    As some of you may recall, I was lucky enough to have a Sigma Travel Kit come into my life courtesy of Kat at Click&Makeup. Since then, I have been using this kit like there's no tomorrow. I took it with me to Ireland for a week, where I used it excl...
  • Handbag Envy
    on Nov 6, 2011 in Just Lovely Things
    Strange as it may seem, I have never lusted after Burberry nor have I suffered from the green eyed monster for many other designer brands. I love a leather bag that feels like it's good quality, but I don't like over the top branding and logos ( they...
  • When a HG is no longer a HG
    on Sep 25, 2011 in Foundations Rants
    You know the story I'm sure. You'd finally found your HG foundation, swearing to be faithful for ever more. Until one day, you strayed. My HG, until recently was Make Up Forever's HD foundation in 115, it was easy to apply, the colour match seemed...
  • It's been too long
    on Sep 25, 2011
  • What was I thinking?
    on Aug 28, 2011 in Random thoughts
    Visiting home always seems to result in a trip down memory lane, which would not be complete without a look through the umpteen photo albums buried in the cupboards. Inevitably, the looks sported so many years ago were often ill conceived or just pla...
  • Blog Hop
    on Aug 21, 2011
    As a relative newcomer to blogging, I'm always on the look out for new ideas for connecting with other more experienced bloggers. The most recent concept I've heard of is the Blog Hop, basically from my understanding it's like a link of blogs. I've b...
