Rimmel London | Kate Moss Matte Lipsticks

Sunday, September 30, 2012

While at LFW Grace & I, went to chill at the Glam Blogging Suite as we had 3 hrs between the shows to really just be pampered & mingle. We was given a goody bag with some really nice Rimmel London products in.

Inside was the new Kate Moss Lipsticks, I've never tried any of her lipsticks with Rimmel, meh - I'm not sure why not, at first I said yeah let me go get one & just never did. Having it now inside the bag gives me a chance to see how these are.

5 matte shades all ready for the upcoming Autumn season, the colours range from a nude, reds to a  purple.

Kreme de la Kreme

Friday, September 28, 2012

Krispy Kreme* have released more new flavours within their range. Last year I was lucky enough to be supplied their gorgeous Glamour Glaze range & partly being a lifestyle sort of blog at times, food comes into play here & there.

The three interesting tastes are Salted Caramel, Pistachio & White Chocolate Nougat & Chocolate Praline Fudge Cake.

I was sent a mixture of Salted Caramel & Butterscotch Sundae ( which I believe was already released & not new ? ) but it was just in time for London Fashion Week SS13 and these babies arrived looking to kill my diet ( diet? what diet!? ) Found it interesting a new collection of A/W doughnuts alongside a new collection of S/S clothes. Kind of tied in on my week.

I'm not a huge fan of caramel and the chocolate on top was too rich for me and I didn't particularly enjoy the Salted Caramel - my taste buds didn't rejoice. The center of it had oozing caramel that would of complimented the taste buds with the soft dough and rich chocolate.

White Chocolate Nougat was softer in taste an original glazed doughnut that was filled in the middle with a soft & thick butterscotch cream (kreme) sprinkled with chocolate honeycomb this was enough to send one into a diabetic coma with all the sweet taste and with a chocolate fan to finish off all the decoration and added extras. Out of the two this sweet, soft baby was my favourite.

These are available from 10th September - January 2013
£1.75 each or chose your own dozen for £10.95

Question is : Do you want to get kremey with me ? :)

Castor oil, Aloe Vera, Jojoba Seed oil, Sweet almond oil, green tea leaf oil Tea, Licorice Tea tree leaf oil are some of the balanced natural ingredients.

Sothys Nail Polish Eclat de Gris

Saturday, September 08, 2012

I was first introduced to Sothys last month. I was offered to try their new Fall - Winter collection to try out. There was one product more than the others that stood out to me but that will be reviewed soon. I'm doing them individually - sorry.
This week before I had to cut my nails down *worlds smallest violin please* I applied Sothys #25  Eclat de Gris nail polish* to my nails even though the sun has been shining I was feeling to wear this, I sometimes find wearing certain grey's quite flat.  It might be the shine that happens when it dries and it dries quickly too. It has active ingredients such as algae extracts and cysteine derivative that helps your nails become stronger & nourished.

I'm looking forward to the a/w nails, are you?

Sometimes you just need that alternative when doing your hair. The last month or so, I've been so lazy with doing my hair. I've just kept it in a bun or naturally curly. Been wanting to give it a rest before refreshing the ombre.

The Instyler* was one of those tools that you just needed to have for your hair. It can work on any type of hair.  When I was born until I was 2 my hair was straight until it turned into fractual curls and as I grew older from my roots to my ears my hair was straight and then wavy / s'wavy hair until I straightened to heck out of it and now my hair falls into straight - frizz - odd wavy curls from root - tip but the front can stay pretty straight - hell.

My hair falls in categories such as thin-medium, quite flyaway. I'm trying to reduce heat and I feel with every straightening I do with the irons it's just breaking and killing my hair.

Graze Box

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Continuing my quest to shed the lbs, even though I haven't dared weigh myself since before I got sick as I fear I've probably put those lbs back on that I lost. I got myself a Graze box the Nibble box to be exact. Funny as I am quite a fussy eater and most healthy snack food, I don't bother to eat as I don't like the contents lol.

This box is slightly different. You get 4 snack boxes and each week they are varied, you can modify what you would never want to receive, try, like & love.  Safe to say I did bin anything with raisins - I'm anti-raisin.

Last week I got my first box for free. Inside this box was Cheddar Gorge, Apple & Cinnamon flapjack, Yin & Yang & Boston Baguettes. What's good about this as it tells you what calories they contain.
Plus it's easier to when filling out My Fitness Pal as it's already listed.

The one thing in my box I could of ate, all day, everyday for a lifetime was :

Yup the Apple & Cinnamon flapjack. In school I never enjoyed flapjacks, they were always so dry but these are full of moisture ( sounds as if I'm describing a beauty product ) and just nicely fall apart.

I just wish there was an option to get them full sized. I like that you are surprised with what you will get, they do give you an email upon dispatch and you can see what you can expect in your box..this week I got my flapjacks back - Oh my goodness, thank you Graze.

They offer two different boxes Nutrition box & Nibble box. Boxes are very reasonably priced at £3.89 p&p inc.

Have you tried Graze boxes?

NARS x Andy Warhol Makeup Collection

Monday, September 03, 2012

The NARS x Andy Warhol is without a doubt one of the most awaited new makeup releases to come. Browse through the fabulous new products to be released and find out more about this comprehensive two part collection.

Ever since the news that cosmetic giant NARS will team up with the Andy Warhol foundation emerged, the collection became one of the most awaited ones of the new season. It's always interesting to see what these collaborations bring, particularly when icons who have had such a influence are being represented. For makeup guru François Nars, this particular collection was extremely important given the strong influence the artist had on him.

The makeup guru revealed the main ideas that have shaped the choices for the makeup products to WWD: "Even more than 20 years after his death, Andy continues to be one of the most influential figures in both contemporary art and pop culture. Andy said, ‘If everybody’s not a beauty, then nobody is.’ This is the same sentiment I wanted to bring to life with NARS — a forward-thinking attitude toward beauty, and the encouragement to inspire self-expression, creativity, and artistry in the women who wear it. It seemed like a natural fit to create a collection that Andy himself might have a hand in if he were alive today.”

With such strong emotional associations, the fact that the new collection is fairly comprehensive is no surprise. What might surprise makeup fans, however is that the collection will be released in two parts. The first set of options will be available at Sephora starting with October 1st while the holiday offerings will debut at department and specialty stores starting with November 1st.

Here are some of the products we'll be able to purchase starting with this October:

Soap & Glory Smooch Operator

Sunday, September 02, 2012

S&G Smooch Operator *

Since receiving this, I've not stopped using it. I've reached for this more than any of my other lip balm. Honestly, I can't tell you why but if it was bad, I'm sure I wouldn't be using it.

Smooch Operator - Coconut Ice.

Applying the recommended small amount, I dab it onto my lips rather then swipe it on. I then within 30 seconds - 1 minute get a tingling, cooling sensation on my lips.

This 9g 'dry lip rescue formula' lip butter balm is creamy to touch, lightly moisturising and isn't heavy or sticky.
Includes ingredients Wild Mango, Vitamin E, Argan Oil, Castor Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Coconut oil and Sweet Almond oil.

I would love to see how this holds up in the true winter days. When the protection is needed. I had a cut on my lip that healed quite nicely in a few days of applying this lip balm. Lip balm is necessary 24 / 7. The tub is light, you barely feel there is nothing in there. Doesn't smell bad either. - Bonus!

*Not sure when it's set to launch, hopefully sometime this month.

Should be available online at Soap & Glory & Boots.

What's your favourite lip balm?
