Mumpty Reviews

Mumpty LOVES trying new and experiencing new things – and especially new makeup things!  Mumpty Reviews is a space where I can let you know my thoughts on products and how they’ve worked for me.

It’s also the space where I put the reviews I sometimes do of the fabulous burlesque and other shows and events I’ve attended – and even an overseas holiday or two!  

So here we go …

And I’m jolly pleased I did, because it was a show that not only honoured the gorgeous bride-to-be in the most glamourous and exuberant way, but gave us, the audience, a damm good night out!  Read about it here.

Mumptystyle Limecrime Suedeberry

So … in the eternal struggle to find a lip colour that stays.the.hell.on, I discovered something wonderful, something fabulous, something liquidy and stay-onny … something called a Lime Crime Velvetine. And my life changed forever – well, my life as it relates to my makeup routine anyway – the rest of it stayed kinda the same!  (Click here for more.)
