Sheer Lip Colours and Nude Beach from Bobbi Brown

That’s nude beach as in a make-up collection….not nudist.
I’m not sure I’ve fully shared my love of Bobbi Brown on here. But I am a massive fan. I love their foundations had a have a review coming up soon. So come May, two new collections will be hitting the Bobbi Brown counters. And I’m fairly excited.

Guest Post: Review - La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume

In my attempt to convert everyone to La Roche-Posay products, I’ve even got my Mum on the hype. I got her to write a review of a product I first saw recommended by EssieButton here. This is what she had to say, words are her own:

Skincare Routine

This has been a post I’ve been wanting to write from the start, what I spend minutes in the mornings and evenings doing. I kill so much time in the bathroom. A record being 45 minutes to take make-up off and brush my teeth. At home I’m lucky enough not to have to share my bathroom unless we have guests and my university room has its own sink. So I can spend as much time as I like just thinking about stuff.

Review – Revlon Lip Butter

So I know I’m really late to the hype of these but I didn’t feel I wanted one until a £3 off Revlon products Boots Advantage card voucher pushed me over the edge. I went for the shade 027 Juicy Papaya, which is a coral-y pink shade. Perfect for summer.

Lazy Girls Guide to Moisturising

So I’m the first to admit I’m pretty lazy when it comes to showering. I mean, not actual showers, I’m normal and regular in that department. But the faff of showering, exfoliating, moisturising, fake tanning and general primping that some seem to do. As the much over-used quote goes “Ain’t nobody got time for that”. Moisturising is probably the one I’m worst at. I just don’t have the time and neither do I want to be standing around being all sticky before I can get dressed. I studied in Canada for 4 months and it was so dry I had to or my skin suffered. But now back in England I can get away with just not doing it.

Review - Barry M Gelly Hi Shine

There’s been a lot of hype surrounding these nail polishes and I’ve been wanting to try them for a while, particularly the shade Lychee, so when in town I dashed into Boots and picked it up.

Review: Mac Prep + Prime

As you may remember from first haul post I made my first significant MAC purchase of two items from the Prep + Prime range. I got the Fortified Skin Enhancer in Adjust and the Transparent Finishing Powder in the loose version. Today I'm finally reviewing them.

La Roche-Posay Sun Care

As will become clear in the next few posts I have an unhealthy obsession with La Roche-Posay skin care products. French skin care is known to be of a high quality and when traveling in previous years I know my Mum has picked up French sun cream too.

I Heart Spring

Because it’s April now and it really should be spring:

  1. What is your favourite spring nail polish?
OPI’s Melon of Troy. It’s either on my fingers or toes for the whole spring/summer.

Bourjois Cream Blushes and Bronzing Collection

Cream blushes aren’t a new thing on the market but it’s always good to see another high street brand producing their own. Bourjois are bringing out their range next month. It will be a cream to powder formula so might not be brilliant for use on lips. They all look like they will be natural shades suiting all skin tones. I'm a sucker for peachy-pink blushes so I think I'll be checking these out when they appear in store. The four shades, priced at £7.99, will be available from the 8th May in Selfridges (both online and in-store) and in Boots, Superdrug and the following week on the 15th May. Also in May Bourjois are releasing limited edition Je t’aime Vintage Blush Pots which will have the first ever blush colour Cendre de Rose Brune – first produced in 1914! These will be £7.49 and available from May in at Selfridges (online and in-store), Boots, Superdrug, and leading chemists nationwide.

Beauty Haul #2

As I said on Twitter, yesterday I went to Boots to spend some of my student loan. They're also doing three for two on most make-up items and I'd just got my new advantage card tokens, no more excuses needed. This is what I bought.
