I have a thing for Lush shower gels, and I just had to get their new offering for VDay – Prince Charming (£4.65 for 100), which I have already mentioned here.
This scent is pretty awesome actually. Although my personal favourite is their Rose Jam, which a lot of people may find too sweet and overpowering, I love this one a lot, too.
Lush describe it as “sweet and floral, yet zingy and refreshing”, and I totally agree. It is a blend of marshmallow root, Fair Trade vanilla and fresh pomegranate juice, and it smells delicious! It is more subtle than it is in the bottle. In fact, my male friend tried it (I may forced him), and he actually had toRead More
Nude lip products aren’t something that I get excited about, but the new Max Factor Colour Elixir Gloss collection called Nude Pomade are pretty awesome.
This limited edition release was created by an amazing MUA Caroline Barnes, and they actually are a homage to Mr Max’s first ever lip gloss, Lip Pomade, which he created in 1920′s.
There are four shades, and here is Caroline’s inspiration behind each one, and also her tips. Plus my comments.
10 Pristine Nude
Caroline: “This is an ultimate nude lip colour and it should be part of every woman’s make-up bag. Suiting all skin tones, it’s my make-up staple. It will perk up your look and create a natural, healthy look when you’re feeling lacklustre.”
Actually, this lip gloss is now a part of my makeup bag, too. It is sheer enough so that my natural lip colour shows through plus it is not a concealer like “dead looking” dated nude. It has pretty mauve/pink undertones, and should look amazing on a lot of women. My personal favourite.
15 Radiant Rose
Caroline: “This shade conveys an expensive lips – with accents of champagne it’s the most subtle gloss in my collection. It will have an incredible lip shaping appearance with its gold flecks and will suit all skin tones.”
This is a beautiful warm-toned shimmering lip gloss, which I personally love paired with matte eye makeup and a liner, it adds just the right amount of glow, plus it makes theRead More
Just take a look at the newest offering from theBalm - How ‘Bout Them Apples? Lip and Cheek Cream Palette.

There are six shades to choose from: Cider, Cobbler, Pie, Crisp, Candy andRead More

My friend from the USA kindly agreed to get some (beauty) products for me, so I am browsing all the shops I can think of, trying to find any hidden gems, that are hard to get here, or that are a lot cheaper in the States.
While I was browsing, I’ve realized that there are a lot of new beauty brands that are released teamed with Estee Lauder. Such as Michael Kors , Tory Burch and AERIN (Aerin Lauder).
And here is what those brands offer for Spring 2014. Is there anything I have to get?
Michael Kors released three sets (each is $32 at Macy’s)
- Glam Collection Lip Luster & Nail Gift Set: a full-size lip luster in Scene-Stealer and a full size nail lacquer in Curtain Call
- Sporty Collection Lip Luster & Nail Gift Set: a full-size lip luster in Prima Donna and a full size nail lacquer in Limeligh
- Sexy Collection Lip Luster & Nail Gift Set: a full-size lip luster in Rising Star and a full size nail lacquer in Encore
