What's happened to Ruby and Millie??

SO many people have asked me where they can get hold of a Ruby and Millie eyeliner recently. I had no idea (until I met Ruby Hammer this week) that Ruby and Millie makeup has in fact been discontinued so if it's not on the shelf now it never will be.

Panic ye not though! The lovely Ruby Hammer (who may I add looks about half her actual age) has launched a brand new makeup range especially for Debenhams.

It'll be coming out in time for Christmas and is a lot more affordable than the Ruby and Millie range. The order of the day is colour colour colour, with kalaeidoscope palettes of eyeshadows to play around with. There is also a great range of good quality brushes and yes there are some eyeliners in there too. The most expensive item is the £45 makeup box which is crammed full of goodies. The box in it's own right was enough to get me excited as it looks like the kind of thing that a professional makeup artist would use and has loads of space.

Let me stress that the quality of this makeup is not going to match that of Ruby and Millie as it is more of a budget brand. However, Ruby Hammer is a renowned makeup artist and I truly believe that she wouldn't put her name to something that she didn't believe in.

If you are looking for a more high end eyeliner to replace your Ruby and Millie one then I'll write about some great ones in the next week or so.


  1. Help !

    Being an occasional, rather than regular user of makeup I've only just realised what has happened to Ruby and Millie. Their sheer foundation was the best !

    What, what, what do I replace it with ?


    1. Hi Carolyne,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      Try Bobbi Brown natural Finish Longlasting foundation. I also love MAC face and body foundation for a really natural coverage xx

  2. Thank you so much for posting this Nicola, I was just looking to replace my R&M eyeliners on Boots online there now and had a bit of a shock! Have used them for years and my brown and black ones are currently about 3cm long!! Sophie xx
