On Giant Peaches and Twits.

My favourite breakfast cereal were giving away Roald Dahl books not so long ago. I must admit I went a little loony over these. You could spot me in the cereal aisle in Sainsburys digging around for George’s Marvellous Medicine or The Twits . I got both AND a copy of James and the Giant Peach which is the influence behind this post!

Here is a mass tissue splurge upon which I have swatched all the peaches in my fruity bowl!


I am utterly in love with my Yaby peach (actually called Tangerine Mist) at the moment its more on the orange scale of the peachy spectrum but it is so wearable and pretty. I never wear it on its own. I like to pair it up with a complementary shade for I do like to mix and blend.

The Dior one is part of the Parisian Lights Quint and is a pleasure to apply.

The Lunsol offering is straight out of the Orange Gradation from the Layer Bloom Eyes series.

The VOV shade in the middle is a single shadow from the Colorsong range. I think it is called She’s Barbie Pink.

The Mac peachy number is from the Hello Kitty Tom Cat palette

The Chanel offering is taken from the Beige Velours Palette

I love Costa Chic. It is a loud and proud Coral Peach in your face. I like pairing it up with the MajoMajo gloss for extra ooomph.


Canmake Cheek Gradation in Peach Stripe. One of my all time favourite “mix” type blushes. Canmake hit the jackpot with these beauties.

My HG powder blush has to be Shu Uemura P Pink 36D. This is my second one!!

I wonder if this sort of thing is at all useful to anyone?

All that is left for me to do now is wish you all a marvellous weekend! Here are some clues as to what I will be doing: sporting 3d specs, snapping in a building set to demolished on Monday and going stripey in a flower market.

See you on the other side.
