Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick review

The perfect nude lipstick. You may have found yours, you might not. Either way, finding the perfect nude can sometimes feel like a lifelong journey. Well today, I'm going to try to help you on your hunt by discussing a shade that I've been roadtesting.

The Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick range is a collection of seven nude shades that come in a gellified formula that promises to provide a sleek shine finish. It contains monoi butter for moisture and Vitamin E and myrhh for anti-ageing effects.

They come packaged in a rather snazzy and chunky gold tube with Marc Jacobs written down the side of the lid in silver writing. The cap also has a silver circle where it clicks into place when you put it back on (I actually really love that part of the packaging, it'a hard to explain why unless you've played around with Marc Jacobs lipsticks before).

The lipstick then comes packaged in a shiny black box with the chosen shade indicated around the edges. The lipstick itself also has a subtle vanilla scent to it.

The shade that I have to show you all today is Anais, which is described as a "spiced ginger" colour.

Winter Skincare Routine - Guest Post

Guest Post

As soon as the winter arrives, the skin starts getting flaky and dry, the lips get chapped and cracked, cold showers turn in to hot baths and all your skincare products that you use in summers become redundant for the new season. In such scenarios, it is better to go organic instead of buying all the chemical induced products and moisturizers that make your skin greasy and become a major cause of breakouts.

Let me tell you a few tips that you often do not take care of in winters due to which your skin worsens in this season. So start following these and you would be left with a healthy glow of summers even in the chilling cold:

Bomb Cosmetics Mad Hatter's Tea Party Bath Blaster review

*
As we edge closer to Xmas, it means that the weather is turning colder and therefore our skin drier. What is better than giving your skin some extra TLC whilst also cosying up in a nice, warm bath? 

I was recently contacted by Soapbombs offering the chance to try a Bath Blaster by Bomb Cosmetics that are available from their website. The choice of amazing looking bath bombs is pretty incredible, but I opted to try the beautiful and fun sounding Mad Hatter's Tea Party Bath Blaster, inspired by Alice in Wonderland.

This particular Bath Blaster contains scents of cream and scones as well as orange and clary sage. Within the middle of the harder, blue bath bomb outer shell, there is a generous dollop of buttery goodness that is adorned with a little red teapot pouring out silver glitter.

Aesthetically it's a very pretty bath bomb, as are all of the others that are available. Sadly, my Bath Blaster did arrive slightly broken, but only the teapot decoration. When it was delivered the delivery man did explain to me that something had happened en route as my parcel was also covered in something that had leaked, too. The bath bomb itself was packaged well within a lot of bubble wrap, so I can't place fault with either The Bomb Cosmetics or Soapbombs for the break.

Yves Rocher Black Friday Offer 2016

*
Hi guys! It's officially that time of year! You know what time I mean. Christmas is around the corner and that means your Christmas shopping is probably well under way, which is why we all rejoice a bit when Black Friday arrives in November.

Instead of rushing out into the cold though, there are offers aplenty to be found online. One such place to visit is none other than the wonderful Yves Rocher. Last year they did a fab Temptation Days game that lasted a whole week with a collection of their top products available for reduced prices.

This year, they are bringing the week of fun back. Not just one day of offers, but an entire five days. It starts on the 23rd November and lasts through until the 28th. Not only that, but instead of 44 products that were reduced last year, this time you will be able to find 70 beauty bargains on their website. I dare you to try to resist it.

So whether you're into their skincare ranges or makeup, you'll be able to find something that tickles your fancy.

My favourite Yves Rocher products? I definitely love the beautiful Botanical Color Eye Pencil and the Secrets d'Essences Voile d'Ambre perfume is perfect for this time of year. It would be great to see those in the offer and if they are, definitely check them out!

I don't know about you, but I'm excited to shop already.

What Yves Rocher products are you hoping to see in the offer and which will you be treating yourself with?
Let me know in the comments below!

Japonesque Makeup Setting Spray review

There is nothing worse than spending a long time applying your makeup for it to just wear off after a couple of hours. No one likes to waste their time. That's why today we're going to be looking at a spray that promises to keep your face in place for hours on end. Hurrah!

The Japonesque Makeup Setting Spray is described as a "pro performance fixative" that provides an airbrushed finish on the skin with a weightless application to keep your makeup in place all day. It is non-drying and invisible, claiming to leave the skin looking flawless.

It comes packaged in a sleek, shiny black aerosol can with minimal white writing around it. It's pretty reminiscent of MAC packaging but with a different logo plastered across it. It looks professional and feels professional.
