Gilette Venus ProSkin Razor Review : No shave gel required!

I know razors aren’t the most exciting of beauty products, but they are one of life’s necessities (well, a Western 90210 inspired life) and as such I’ve been a Gilette girl pretty much all my life. I used to dabble with the Men’s Mach 3 Razors (love the shave you get from a men’s razor) but recently have been a Gilette Venus Girl.

I’ve been trying out the Gilette Venus ProSkin razor and have been very impressed with it so far. This is a razor with three blades- YES, I know 5 is standard nowadays but hear me out. The THREE blades are attached to TWO huge Moisturerich gel bars that actually create a lather as you shave and mean you DON’T NEED a separate shower gel.

Nail Art Pens Review From Find Me a Gift

Nail Art is HAWT nowadays and everyone is starting to sell the tools to help you create your own look at home. They can be pricy though, so it was exciting to find a nail art trio where you got three pens for a tenner! These were no ordinary pens either, because not only did they contain a nib for drawing and dotting, and a brush for colour- but you also got an attached tube of colour matching rhinestones to each pen to help create a really exciting look.

The three shades of white red and blue were very patriotic and the colours were nice and bold. I did feel a black shade would have been a useful inclusion but these three were enough to let me create some really cool designs.

I really liked how the nibs of the pen were really fine as this was useful for creating a variety of polka dots in different sizes and by applying a little pressure you could change the size and finish of the dots.

Real Snakeskin manicure for the brave

Today seems to be the day for weird and wacky beauty news and I’ve just come across a real life snakeskin manicure. Not snakeskin STYLE- but ACTUAL real snakeskin, the type a snake sheds! Seriously, this is a whole new level of crazy. OK, it doesn’t’ hurt the snake at all, but ewwww. The hygiene. The feel. The weird way your nails will look…

How this works is that you get a Snake Skin manicure using Bisosclupture nail gels (basically Shellac/ gel nails) where the SANITIZED (Thank god) snake skin is embedded as one of the gel layers, and the finish is smooth and glossy. It should last around 2 weeks and they say there are 170 odd colour combinations- well no snake is the same right?

This was apparently big in New York and we now can have this done on London at the Chelsea Hand and Foot Spa.

Prices are pretty high- £20 per fingernail and £35 per toenail, with a massive discount for a full set (£160 hands, £150 feet).

I think I might have to sit this trend out- how about you?

Five cool and creative Eye Makeup Art designs

We pay a lot of attention to beautiful tattoos and stunning clothing, and I think it’s time eye makeup had its share of the spotlight. I want to highlight some innovative and artistic designs created using eyeshadow, and I don’t mean a simple smokey eye- I’m talking ladybugs and Hello Kitty eye makeup!

Confused? You won’t be after you’ve gazed at the following photos. There are some seriously talented folk out there, and this is just a short overview of some of the images and styles they are creating with sheer ingenuity and a makeup blending brush. It has me tempted to try something as well but where to start? Here are my current five favourite eye makeup artistic displays. (See Bow Eye Makeup Art above!)


Does this eye makeup make you want a Burger King burger? The fact that a company is getting into eye makeup art shows this trend is staying around!

Matalan isn’t always on the top of everuon’s fashion radar, but they really deserve a lot more attention. May I draw your eyes to their dazzling Autumn Winter 2012 selection of shoe styles? They’ve interpreted design that have been popular on the catwalk (and every Winter to offer a line of well priced hugely covetable footwear that will have your mouth watering- OK, mine I admit it, a true shoe crazy girl.

Their collection is really versatile; you have studded trainers, patent ankle boots and skyscraper heels. Colour palettes are black, nude, gold and red and very glam looking and they’ve even incorporated velvet into some shoes which is unusual- look at those red velvet grandpa loafers- amazing!

Real Fox Fur bikini wax !

We all know that it’s nice to keep you lady garden in shape, but have you ever thought about covering it with pink fluffy fox fur? No, me neither.

To be honest, I feel pretty brave even having a landing strip and have yet to go to Hollywood, so the idea of this is a little out there for me. Yes, I have tried Vajazzling, but that’s not quite the same thing. The Completely Bare salon in New York is offering some speciality waxing styles called The Foxy Bikini Wax, Merkin Bikini, and The Carnivale Bikini Wax.  What does having this involve?

Well, the Foxy Bikini Wax involves a laser hair treatment or a bikini wax. The fox fur is then applied and will last around 3 days for the high price of $140. The Carnivale Wax includes feathers whilst the merkin.. well you know what a merkin is right?

Rachel Gilbert AW12 Preview

Rachel Gilbert is a brand that has just got onto my radar and I couldn’t be happier. The designer hails from Australia and her collection comprises of floaty shirts, pleated skirts and stunning embellished dresses.

It’s her foreign roots that makes this Autumn Winter Collection quite astounding to Brits, as she makes no allowances for the climate with her pastel hued collection that sparkles under the light with intricate beading and adornments on every available area. I love her collection- the floaty skirts and tops are incredibly wearable and the colour palette makes them look so light and airy.

When it comes to evening dresses we’re talking serious glamour, and Rachel Gilbert has this is spades, creating dresses that flatter a woman’s shape and are very red carpet worthy.
