Get the LDN look; Kate Lippies!

Hello :)

So, a few weeks ago i finally got a job after being unemployed since January, i'm now working at Dorothy Perkins, not the fanciest of jobs, but it brings in the pennies! ;) After hearing the news that i had been offered the position, i decided to treat myself to a new lippie in the form of one of the Kate Moss Rimmel lipsticks.

As an ambassador for Rimmel, it was no real surprise to hear that Miss Moss was releasing her own range of lipsticks with Rimmel. The range features seven high-shine colours packaged in chic matte black packaging, with Kate's signature emblazoned on the side in red.

In the Autumn/Winter time i tend to bid a fond farewell to the corals and pinks of my lipstick collection and instead indulge in more deeper red/berry based colours. With that in mind, i plumped for Number 8 from the range, a mauvy raspberry hue.

This lipstick has become my daily 'go-to' lip product. I wear this daily to work and have found it to be pretty longlasting, moisturising and it smells rather gorgeous too (a vanilla-y scent...)

I will do an FOTD (does anyone else hate the acronym?! ;)) soon featuring the lipstick, so you can see it in all its glory! If you are on the lookout for a new lipstick then definately take a look at the Kate ones as they really are great!!

Available from Boots and Superdrug for around £5.49

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :)

Hello :)

Call me boring, but i'm very loyal to a particular shampoo and conditioner - my ever faithful Aussie Aussome Volume Shampoo and the 3MM, so when i was offered the chance to try out a few bathroom delights from Herbalife, i wondered how they would compare to my usual combo. .

Herbalife Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner Shampoo £8.50 Conditioner £8.50
This double act claim to 'gently cleanse whilst infusing with moisture and sealing into hair. Hair will shine with vitality!'

One of my favourite things about this shampoo is the smell, it has a lovely 'clean and fresh' scent, which i love! It made my hair feel like it was getting a really good and thorough cleanse. The consistency of both products is more runny than i am used to, this didn't bother me too much, as the bottles are rather big, however it meant i needed to use a little bit more shampoo to get a good lather on! ;)

Packaging wise, its not bad but its not amazing either. Its simply a bottle with the compulsary labeling, logo and information on. Very simple, but it does the job!

I used the shampoo/conditioner for about 4-5 days and i have to say i am very impressed! I've lost count as to how many products i have used which claim to help seal moisture into your hair, yet have achieved nothing! However the Herbalife Moisturising duo does exactly what it says on the tin (or bottle...) Used together, both products left my previously rather dehydrated hair feeling healthy and shiny!

Herbal Aloe Everyday Shampoo and Conditioner Shampoo £9.70 Conditioner £9.70
The consistency of the shampoo is very similar to the shampoo from the duo above, a slightly runny, creamy feeling product, which similarly lathers up nicely. The conditioner again, feels light and nourishing, and is very easy to wash out.

Packaging wise, it follows the same design as the Moisturising range above, 2 simple bottles with the obligatory logo and labeling.

I used the shampoo and conditioner together for again around 4-5 days, and really enjoyed using them. Throughout a normal week i use a mixture of Hairspray, Dry Shampoo, Hair Clay, Hair Mousse... i could go on! So it goes without saying that i require a shampoo that can remove all the gunk and get my hair back to a clean, de-gunked condition, and this duo did just that. I feel it helped remove product build up and gave my hair a really nice cleanse.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection 16 Hour Concealer

Hello :)

One product that the beauty world is continuously buzzing about is Collection 2000's Lasting Perfection Concealer, and with the likes of the uber-talented Pixiwoo girls raving about it, i figured it would be simply unacceptable to bypass it!

Unfortunately, i inherited dark circles under my eyes (thanks mum and dad...) so a concealer is an everyday must for me. I was previously using Benefit's Erase Paste as a concealer but found it to be a bit thick for me.

The Lasting Perfection Concealer is a lovely creamy formula that is easily applied via the applicator, and blends into the skin like a dream, whilst covering up any imperfections and dark circles in the process. The consistency of the concealer is simply uh-mazing, it feels creamy and light, kinda like a foundation but with extra coverage.

I can't really adhere to the 16 hour longevity test as i apply my make up at around 7am/8am and take it off at 8pm/9pm most days. However, i have found that the concealer stays on perfectly throughout the day, with no touch-ups needed.

The concealer is packaged in a thin lipgloss-like tube, with a doe-foot applicator and is available in 4 shades; Fair, Light, Medium and Dark. One minor point concerning the packaging is that the writing tends to rub off within a couple of months(see photo below), not ideal for an obsessive make up junkie like myself, but no biggie either!

Incase you haven't guessed yet, i bloody well love this concealer, it applies nicely, covers a multitude of sins and best of all? its only £4.19! I honestly can't see myself straying to a different concealer as this one does such a fantastic job.

Available from Boots & Superdrug.

Hope you are all having a good week, have your tried this concealer yet? Let me know your thoughts on it!

Eucerin Review : Cleansing Milk & Gel

Hey girls,

Hope you are all doing well, here is a little review on two skincare items that i've been trialing recently...

Eucerin Mild Cleansing Milk
I switched from my ever faithful, Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (review) to trial this cleanser, so i was slightly concerned as to how it would compare to my sacred C&P. My verdict? In short, i love it!

The cleanser comes in a squeezy white tube with a pop-up top, which makes it super easy to dispense the right amount of product that you require. The cleanser itself is a generic creamy white substance, which feels moisturizing and nourishing when applied. On a day to day basis i wear, Foundation, Concealer, Blusher, Bronzer, Eyeshadow and Mascara, and this cleanser removes the sh-bang with ease! I remove the cleanser with either a Muslin cloth or just bog standard cotton wool pads. I'd say this is on par with my Liz Earle C&P, its not as thick and creamy as C&P but does just as well removing your make up and giving your skin a good cleanse.

Eucerin Refreshing Cleansing Gel
I have also been using the Eucerin Gel alongside the cleanser to see how they got on together. I was geekily quite excited to try the cleanser as it is gel based, which as you may know is causing quite a buzz in the beauty world at the moment! Gel based cleansers apparently work wonders for oily skin people like myself, so i was looking forward to seeing what results i would get!
The product comes in a similar, squeezy transparent tube with a pop-up top like the cleanser above. The cleanser has quite a thick consistency and feels a bit more firm than other cleansers, basically it feels like gel! ;) I have seen noticeable results since using this cleanser, it seems to have controlled my oiliness yet it hasn't stripped away all my natural oils or made my skin feel dehydrated. The only slightly negative point is that it doesn't lather, which doesn't particularly bother me, but i know some people like a bit of lather-ing action!
