This week I have been playing with Rimmel’s Renew Sheer & Shine Lipsticks. They are essentially a gloss in a stick! They remind of a very expensive Dior Addict Shine lippie I bought a few years back, but at a much better price point.
I’m going to skirt over my absence and hope you forgive me! I had to have a little beauty rave. I’m beach crazy. Beach hair, beach skin, beach bags, sandals, swinmwear… you get the gist. If there is a scent of the sea incorporated into a fragrance, hair or skin product it is inclined to end up in my shopping basket. It just cheers me up, makes me happy and reminds me of relaxing times. I hated Secondary school and on bad Winter days I used to smear myself in Hawaiin Tropic… hey, whatever gets you through right!
Gwen is synonymous with cool. In my world Gwen is also synonymous with teenage heartbreak, oh yes I was that teenager you heard crying her eyes out to Don’t Speak after a boy I liked for 3 whole days kissed someone called Vicky at the local disco (*rolls on the floor laughing at that memory). Thankfully my taste in boys improved somewhat albeit after a few disasters ha, but I remained a Gwen fan. I mean she sampled Maria from The Sound of Music, the woman just ticks all my boxes.
I have been a naughty blogger but I am back in action! Just in time for new years resolutions, waah! So it’s January, I feel like a City Council bin. It’s time for change, ugh. Around this time every year I embark on a mission to re-balance myself, to calm my anxious ways and restore a feeling of vitality… it sounds like a lot of work. I am generally quite a healthy person but this year I really do need a kick in the backside.
If you have damaged, fine hair I have finally found a product that will make you fabulous! Pureology Strength Cure Micro-scarred Colour damaged hair. When I see products for damaged hair I assume they will weigh down my already fine hair. These products do no such thing *enter high five woo hoo at your leisure*. We have found a winner.
I was made for sunshine so I’m not even thinking about Autumn yet. There is still some Summer to be had! With that in mind I thought I would share some of the Summer skin products I have been trying out from Holland and Barrett.
Oh holy silky hair heaven! A hair product I have obsessed with lately at the moment is the Matrix Oil Wonders Indian Amala Strengthening Oil. I needed to try it well because, well my hair was a mess of breakage and dryness. It is supposed to invigorate and renew weakened hair leaving it feel 4 times stronger and if anyone needs stronger hair it’s me *sobs into hands after removing giant wad of hair from brush*.
If like me you are a mascara addict you will be familiar with issues of dried lashes later in the day, clumping, flaking and then come tea time you want to apply another coat to freshen up or add drama but your lashes will not cooperate. Enter Urban Decay Mascara Resurrection Lash Refresher. It’s the best mascara fix, holy innovation Batman!
An iron on the top of an eye gel? Obviously I have to know if it works. When I heard about the iron I first thought gimmick! I assumed it would be plastic and look tacky but actually its like a dainty little monopoly piece. It’s not the iron itself, its that it stays cold, like applying the back of a cold spoon to your eye puffs. Although the shape of the tip works much better with the shape of your under eye area…
