2015 marked the 30th anniversary of the iconic Color Riche range which resulted in the beautiful L’Oréal Paris Color Riche 30 Years Lipstick Collection. I bought these lipsticks in February (that must be a record) but completely forgot to blog about them *slaps wrist*.

There are lots of shades in the range but I picked these 5 as they stood out to me as the colours from which I would get the most wear over different seasons. The colours I chose, from left to right, were:

  • 130 Androgyne (matte) – A pretty, chalky baby pink that looks amazing with a smokey eye.
  • 132 Magnolia Irreverence (satin) – A striking fuchsia pink with a blue base.
  • 134 Rose Royale (satin) – A slightly softer, but still very eye-catching, pink.
  • 229 Cliché Mania (matte) – A true orange lipstick that I was nervous to wear but looks beautiful on, especially in the summer.
  • 430 Mon Jules (matte) – A dark berry red that has really come into its own now the weather is colder.

October 2015 Monthly Beauty and Lifestyle Favourites

November! Unbelievable! This month has been a very busy and stressful one with work, so my blogging has taken a bit of a back seat but you’ll be happy to hear that I’ve still been keeping track of my favourite beauty and lifestyle products this month.

Glo & Ray are fast becoming one of my favourites brands and it baffles me that they are not better known… but I think that may change. They have some seriously great products, some of which you can see in my previous reviews HERE and HERE.

New York Beauty Haul Part 2, Drugstores

My second part of my US beauty haul from New York is now live. This covers drugstore items from Walgreens, CVS, Duane Reade as well as other bits from Chinatown, Victoria’s Secrets and Bath & Body Works. I did so much research before I went to find the best things to buy, but ended up grabbing lots of things that caught me eye as well. So many treats!

My first video in this series was a Sephora haul which you can find HERE. SO many amazing products that I’ve been dreaming about owning for months (if not years!)

Let me know your US beauty recommendations in the comments, as I’m already building my list for next time!

For me, the arrival of Spring / Summer every year sparks a big change: clothes, hair, attitude and (perhaps the easiest to do) make up. The B. Sweet collection has some absolutely gorgeous bits and pieces that will help me transition and embrace the glowy, pretty look I tend to gravitate towards in warmer months.

(P.S. I’m currently only my hols in New York – eeeee! – but I somehow got organised enough to schedule some blog posts).

I have already done a nail art blog post featuring 2 of the GOSH SS15 collection nail varnishes, but wanted to show you some other exciting bits from the collection that I was sent this week. I don’t think I’d tried any GOSH make up products before so I was very intrigued to give them a go.

A few weeks ago I was invited to the launch of the new cosmetics range by Barbara Daly. It is called Barbara Daly ‘Trade Secrets’ Collection and has been designed to be an easy to use, non-intimidating and easily combined range.

An Introduction To Glo and Ray

An Introduction To Glo and Ray

When the lovely folks at Glo & Ray asked me to pick some items to review, I had to take my time: I’d not heard of the brand before but the range is quite wide and has a good mix of exciting looking products. I was on the website for ages before I could whittle my choices down but in the end I chose a lipstick (of course), a blusher/bronzer and an eyeliner.
