Greedy for Greaspaints

I don't know why Mac tease me with making the best products they've ever made - limited edition. It's just not fair, I either have to spend more money stocking up or I''m forced to use the product very sparingly- which is painful when I love something so much.

The products I am referring to are the greasepaint sticks, these babies are the bomb! They are easy to use, they stick and don't budge and they're a perfect base for the Mac pigments.

I am in love with Dirty, a smokey gun metal colour and Greengrease. They are wearable both daytime and nightime and they give that smudged worn in sultry look - which I love.

Mac - you beeyatches better make these part of the permanent collection.

Turn back time with Comfort Zone

I have discovered the wonder product of skincare treatments in  luxurious Italian skincare brand, Comfort Zone.

The Chrono Reverser Gel is the latest innovation in chemical peeling which visibly reduces wrinkles, fine lines, acne signs and dark spots within four weeks. However, unlike traditional methods of chemical peeling, skin is left deeply hydrated, silky smooth, radiant and protected against environmental damage.

I originally bought this product for my ma and noticed her skin was glowing and looked plump and revived, so I bought one for myself. The instructions state to use it every night on clean skin for four weeks. I am currently in my second week and friends have commented that my skin is positively glowing and have asked if I am wearing different make up.

Chrono Reverser Gel gives a highly advanced peeling action through the combination of a recently discovered polyhydroxy acid, stimulating cell turnover and accelerating the exfoliating process.

I'm currently preparing my skin for the Summer, so once I've finished using the Chrono-reverser, I will be using Comfort Zone's Tan Intensifier, a product which brings melanin to the surface of the skin, in preparation for tanning therefore preventing sun burn, resulting in a beautiful golden tan.

I highly recommend this product if you're getting married or to prepare skin for holiday. I'm sure it will be a celeb must-have for red carpet events.

Comfort Zone is available at spas and the Chrono Reverser Gel costs £46.95.

Make up makes me new tagline

I've always been more excited about buying make up rather than most girls weakness- shoes. Don't get me wrong, I love shoes but make up just gives me a whole different sense of euphoria.

It all began when I was at college and me and my best mates discovered the Chanel counter(this was where I spent over half of my part time wages). I always knew about make up because of my ma, who would insist on putting black kohl and rouge on my cheeks as a kid, but it's a different feeling when you go into the big scary world of cosmetics by yourself, experimenting with brands, what suits and how to wear make up rather than looking like a clown.

So, since a teenager I've always felt the same, I look forward to buying make up, a lipstick or new blusher can completely transform your look and give you confidence. Whereas, when shopping for clothes, you have to buy a whole outfit and even then body issues always get in the way (for me anyway). This thought just clicked into my head the other night when I was out having dinner with my mate, she had got me some gorgeous colours of lipsticks from Mac and I was so excited to try them out.

I'm sure make up radiates the same energy as the Sun, which turns on our happy hormones. Make up is for everyone, regardless of shape, colour or anything else. It's the best invention ever - thanks to the Ancient Egyptians.

All I'm saying is that, "make up makes me happy", which is why this will now be my tagline. It's more fun experimenting with make up and much cheaper.

What do you think? How does make up make you feel? All comments welcome.
