SOL DE JANEIRO Brazilian Bum Bum Cream Review

As you can imagine, I see new beauty launches every single day so the product has to be very special to stand out, let alone, for me to want to buy it,  especially considering the amount of items I already have.

But when I saw SOL DE JANEIRO Brazilian Bum Bum Cream  I knew I had to have it. To be honest, the team behind this product are a bunch of geniuses! Everything about this gem is very clever from the name, the eye catching design, online presence to the product itself. You simply can’t resist it.Interestingly enough, I did not buy this cream myself, my partner noticed my obsession and got it for me. Which proves once again that the name is brilliant! Bum bum

So what about my impression? The first thing you notice is the oh-so-cool design. Who does not want that

Darphin Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood Review

I’ve used up  Darphin Aromatic Cleansing Balm  till the very last drop, so it is about time I write about it.

This cleanser is a cult product in the industry, and rightly so. First of all, as the name suggests, it smells absolutely incredible, there is something soothing and relaxing about using it at the end of the day, it is like a well deserved “me time”. The scent is divine thanks to Marula Oil, Sage, Ylang Ylang and Rosewood Essential Oils. It is truly therapeutic, especially with our hectic schedules.

I also love the cleansing properties and how soft it makes my skin feel. While I never remove my eye makeup with this type of cleansers, I find that it does the job of

AW18 Best Makeup Launches: Givenchy, Hourglass, Dior and Urban Decay

There are lots of new makeup launches for Autumn, and I have selected the hottest, in my opinion, for you to choose from. I’ve also made sure to pick something for face, lips and eyes.

Givenchy Le Rouge Liquide, £28 from Harrods, $37 from Sephora.

 Givenchy lipsticks are the hottest ones out there, if you ask me. And while I definitely do not need any new ones, I’d get this one in a heart beat. Leather case and a liquid lipstick which look easy to apply. Oh, yes!  The formula is promised to be soft and creamy, and the finish – matte. The shade featured is 410 Rouge Suedin.

DIOR Rouge Dior Ink Lip Liner, £24 from Harrods, Nordstrom.

It is basically a lipstick which comes in a form of a felt pen which allows a very precise application.  Dior claim “long-wearing formula delivers intense colour with a sumptuous matte finish for up to 12 hours”. The colour shown is

Jessica Quick Dry 60 Second Drying Review

Recently I’ve posted about my new favourite red nail varnish and about my current favourite polish remover.

So today I would like to share about my other discovery which is “drying drops”. I have never tried them before but was curious to do so, so picked up a bottle of Jessica Quick Dry 60 Second Drying.

Pictured is also a repurchase of CND Solar Oil

And it is a really cool product.  It is basically a drying oil which you drop on your nails after applying a nail polish. It really speeds up the drying process which is absolutely incredible.

The product does not mess up the nail polish and is absolutely undetectable. So if you

Lipsticks in Red: Chanel, Dior, Guerlain and Lancome

I am the biggest fan of a red lipstick, and if there is anything better than a red [lipstick], that is one in a red packaging.  And it looks like it is a mini trend for the Autumn, and it is something  that has my 100% approval.
