Bistro Tea



Goodbye old bag! ~ At last, an alternative to the messy tea bag.

Bistrotea introduces the innovative TeaPod ~ a single use, high-tech tea diffuser with a unique filtration system that produces a richly flavoured and fragrant cup of tea. Unlike a tea bag, the TeaPod requires no squeezing or wringing to extract the flavour ~ so no more burnt fingers. Its innovative design also eliminates the need for a teaspoon as it can be used to stir the tea. Plus, it does not drip tea when you remove it from the cup ~ so no more mess!

Each TeaPod is packed at point of origin using premium grade, organic tea leaves, harvested, selected and processed in Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) on Fair Trade estates.

The designs are all bursting with confidence and couture appeal. Rosewood and smoke grey are the colours of the season. A poetic interaction of fashion trends and beauty is presented with the Limited Edition “Une, deux, trois” by CATRICE, which will be available in stores in February 2014 just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation Stromboli Swatches


When it comes to foundation, I prefer a flawless full coverage foundation, I was using Lancome & Chanel before I started to use my MAC Studio Fix Fluid, as Lancome &  Chanel discontinued my favourite foundations (this was many years ago) I had to search for another product that will fill the gap, I started to use MAC, I love my Studio Fix Fluid but finding my matching shade it almost impossible, All the shades I have been matched are so orangey & peachy for me.

Collection Cosmetics Jade's Lipstick Swatches

I love love love and love the shade..  It is one of the rare of shades that I like on my self.

Do not just say ah it is a drug store brand it won't come near to YSL lipsticks.

It smells lovely, it tastes lovely :)) it

 To be honest I am having hard to time find a nice shade that would really go well with my skin tone on high street brands, either too dark / too light or I simply do not like the shade.

I mostly find lovely lipstick at drugstores, not always but mostly.

Collection is a brand I really love, lipsticks, glitter liners, coloured mascaras, it just rocks my world.



Art Deco Glam Vintage Shimmer Cream Brown Swatches


Art Deco Glam Vintage Shimmer Cream Brown Swatches





My first Art Deco purchase in long long time. When I purchased it in a store in Fulham they did not have any samples to swatch, so I purchase this one, but now I say I wish I purchased the Moonlight.

This a multi use product, you can either use it alone, or you can use it as a base colour.

You can also mix and  match it with the other eye shadow's, I like it using with golds, coppers, browns, caramels,  even with the first two Naked Palettes

LOLA by Perse Intense Colour Lipstick Strawberry Fields Swatches


I quite like Lola by Perse, I have a chance to try most of the range at the blogger events, makeup brushes are quite soft, eye shadows are quite pigmented, but the only problem is the brand is not available at smaller M&S. It's not available here in Staines.

You can see from the swatches that this lipstick has got blue tints.

This lipstick looks much lighter on the lips than I expected, it has got small glitters, its pearly & a bit iridescent

H20+ SPA Sea Salt Skin Smoother Reviews




I generally use this smoother on my legs and my hands, I suffer from dry hands and legs.

I use it on my hands at least twice a week, it makes my hands so soft and gentle.

Your hands might feel a little oily if you put too much.

Real Techniques Stippling Brush Reviews


I waited for so long whether to write a review on few Real Techniques brushes or not, I purchased quite few items just to try and test to see if they are really as good as people were talking about.

When I was purchasing the brushes, I did not expect the quality to be as good as NARS or even The Body Shop's makeup brushes.

John Frieda Full Repair Hydrate Rescue Conditioner Reviews




John Frieda Full Repair Hydrate Rescue Conditioner Reviews





For a girl like me who has extremely oily hair, this product will last me for ages, I only apply to my ends, and only a pearl / pea size is enough for me, as I do not have long hair.

I generally do not prefer to use any conditioners, unfortunately without a conditioner, it is impossible to comb or brush my hair these days, my hair is tangly, having both tangled and oily hair does not help, as I need to use something to care the dry ends but I also need to use a deep cleansing shampoo, which does not help, it is more like horns of a dilemma.

APIVITA Propoline Peppermint Propolis Shampoo Reviews



I have greasy hair and sometimes I do have to wash it twice a day (especially in summer time) this drives me crazy. I used The Body Shop's Nettle Shampoo for so long, and when they suddenly decided to discontinued it, my search for finding the right shampoo started.

John Freida Luxurious Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo


I have been looking for a nice dry shampoo for a long long time. I have a greasy roots with dry ends, and on some days it feels like I have not been washing my hair for ages. It is very upsetting and also irritating, knowing that you wash your hair just a night ago, and in 12, 13 hours it is greasy, sticky, weak and horrid.

Lola Makeup by Perse Nail Polish in Bubblegum Swatches & Reviews




Lola Makeup by Perse Nail Polish in Bubblegum

I admit that I think last time I used a pink nail polish like this, it was most possibly when I was a teenager.

It is a little too bright and a bit lush for me. I have got an olive complexion and this type of pink shows me darker than I am. It brings out the yellow undertones in my skin and I automatically look darker than I usually am.
