As you know I am a huge MAC fan, and when they release collections I get super excited! This collection was released before christmas and was a small collection, well compared to some.
Prabal Gurung is a Nepalese fashion designer collaborated with MAC for this beautiful collection, the collection used heavy gold metal to cover the beautiful products. I purchased the eyeshadow duo in Terre. The packaging oozes high end glamour, has to be one of my favourite packaged beauty products. It feels luxurious and has a magnetic clasp to help keep the product shut with a handy mirror.
Terre to me means earth in french, hopefully I am right with that! So to me the colours represented the earth. The colours are stunning, a metallic neutral shade with hints of pink teamed with a deep chocolate brown. The combination is stunning, this has now become a daily favourite in my makeup bag.
At the moment I find celebrities seem to be all about the pout, the huge lips but what they seem to not get quite right is that they don't look natural, personally the more natural the more beautiful so here is a product to help achieve a natural pout.
Pouty Lipzz is a new brand which has come to the UK. Pouty Lipzz's is a clear, fragrance free lipgloss in a sleek tube which is meant to make lips "look instantly more contoured, plumped, fuller and moisturised".
Pouty Lipzz states that it can give up to 40% more volume when applied three times a day for 29 days.
What I love about this product is that it doesn't hurt, it makes me feel awake and minty fresh but in no way does it irritate or cause pain so its a winner. Whether I got a 40% improvement on my volume I got to say I couldn't tell by how much in percentage wise but after 2 weeks I have found that I prefer to wear this gloss on top of lipstick to help create a Kylie Jenner lip look, it helps give me a natural pout to give any lip filler a run for its money!
I have an obsession with blazers, there we go I admitted it, I am OBSESSED! I adore structure, a blazer that fits like a glove with unique detail. A blazer can transform a look, it can make a look go from your average outfit to a strut your stuff kinda outfit.
Hope you are all well. I am so excited for christmas and trying to get all the finishing touches completed. Todays review is around a brand, Yves Rocher a french brand that brings glamour and great value. I was lucky enough to be sent these three products.
Yves Rocher Lipstick.
This moisturising lipstick is in the shade Rose Alba. This particular lipstick is quite sheer, it adds a subtle pink finish to the lips, in comparison with MAC finishes it is a frost finish. The lipstick is such a pretty colour, it left my lips moisturised but I did need to reapply frequently.
I normally go for particular brands of perfume and never think to order from places like Yves Rocher especially when I cant smell the scents. I opened the box to find a cute flower top detail bottle, it looked expensive. It stated it was a "spicy night time version with an addictive liquorice accent". I sprayed this scent and I cant stress enough how beautiful this scent is, has now become one of my favourite scents, it is long lasting and such a gorgeous unusual scent. It is floral but sweet which is perfect, it has a subtle spicy note. I adore this and wear it everyday. Would highly recommend this.
You can buy the perfume here. It is currently on offer for only £19.00.
Yves Rocher Mascara.
Yves Rocher waterproof mascara. This mascara is stating is is a "lash plumping" mascara, I have to admit I dont feel this mascara necessarily gives yours lashes an oomph, but it definately lengthens. I love the brush, it separates the lashes and defines each lower lash which is something I need for my lashes. It is waterproof and didnt budge when water was applied, yet is not hard to take off with eye makeup remover. I still think the Yves Rocher Sexy Pump mascara is my favourite.
Its party season time, where all your work friends gather to celebrate the christmas season so here is an outfit I put together for an office party. I love mixed textures, so denim and a string effect skirt teamed with some sparkle and nude high heels. I love this combination, you can also team it perfectly with leather pencil skirt.
