Eve Lom Kiss Mix

Yay, my first Eve Lom product review. That's no surprise though cause the range can be quite pricey, but amazing quality. 
I have dry lips, gosh how I hate them. Having dry lips can really make that lipstick you want to wear seem crappy and accentuate those flaky parts - As I write this I've realised its not something pretty to imagine, so sorry. 

Now, I purchased this from the Look Fantastic website (which if you didn't know already I love) for £16. Yes very pricey when you can grab a pot of Vaseline for just over £1 but I wanted something luxurious, a bit of a treat. 

The Kiss Mix is described as a 'lip treatment' for dry and chapped lips (Exactly what I have) 
It contains Zinc Oxide which is fab for protection from UV, which we often forget isn't just around on those sunny days but pretty much any day. Its other obvious ingredient is menthol, which once you apply gets to work. The menthol isn't too strong but you know its there so if you're sensitive you might not like that aspect of it. 

The question is does it moisturise? Sort of, its not a miracle in a tiny 7ml pot. If you have really dry lips it makes the flaky parts a tad obvious because the consistency is slightly thick almost like a lip gloss in a pot. However once you leave it be it does get to work. 
What I really love is how versatile it is, you can apply before lipstick as a primer or after to gloss it up. 
Another important factor is the packaging it looks crisp and pristine so it doesn't look cheap either.  

If you're on a budget and want something similar try the Leighton Denny Cuti-Lips. 

I do really like this product and I'm looking forward to trying the Eve Lom range (Once I save a little as some products are at a price range of £85) 

Hope you enjoyed the read and if you fancy it follow me over on Twitter, following the link on the right!

Brush Holder Idea

Hey readers,

I've spent many hours on the Internet searching and searching desperately for the perfect brush holder idea. Put it this way I eventually gave up, I couldn't find anything to my liking. Granted, it was probably down to me being fussy but when I stopped searching that's when I found them!
I'm sure that many of us have seen the 'sephora style' brush holders, glam I know. I was so envious they  were gorgeous and simple. I found these in a shop called Butlers. I believe they are drinking glasses but  once you get your brushes in you have fooled people, they work so well. Even though I'm not using the glasses for their intended purpose even though I've just realised writing this I'm quite thirsty, I have gotten away with it.

The colour is lovely, a deep sexy purple. I've just painted my room purple so it worked out even better for me. They are almost patriotic embossed with a crown design.

Shown above with my Real Techniques brush the size of the glasses are actually perfect, not too big or small. I picked these up here for just.... £1.99. They are also available in clear too if you want to keep it simple.

Look Fantastic Website Review

I guess we all have that one website that we are religious to, I just needed to find one...I was lost but now I'm found....Yh OK I'll stop. Lame! No but seriously There are a number of cosmetic/skin care on line store's out there but I always had mixed feelings about them, they either didn't have everything I was looking for or they were expensive and didn't offer great customer rewards.

That's when I came across lookfantastic.com - So happy I found it.

I'm a bit of a bargain shopper but also most importantly I love quality. There are millions of products out there, some work and some don't but its nice where I can have a website that sells a huge deal of choice and great for those on different budgets.

Put it this way I just spent a decent £56 on three amazing products that I will review soonish (REN Renewal mask, Eve Lom lip balm and A Murad radiance peel) The best bit about it?
receiving 20% off and a FREE Bella Pierre 'pretty woman' kit. I M HAPPY! Wait Did I also mention free delivery? No? Well there's that too.

I'm not here in anyway to force you to go check it out but you'd be silly not to.

I love blogging and reading blogs, and this site also has it's very own little blog section - Something I also suggest checking out. Its great if you want to get a personal view on a product or products. I'll often find myself coming across products I've never even heard of that I find myself wanting to try. Even if you don't want to buy anything there are some great reads on the 'blogger of the week section' (love it)

Well, that's all. I haven't been paid or asked to do this post, being a blogger is about talking, well writing about favourite things, I genuinely wanted to share this with you. 

Don't forget to follow me! x

GlamGlow SuperMud Mask Review

I recently uploaded a new review along with some wonderful images of the GlamGlow SuperMud mask on my YouTube channel. I thought I might as well create a quick post for you guys so you can see the wonderful images, gosh the packaging is beautiful. I really enjoyed taking some snaps, its incredibly photogenic.        

Below you'll find all those amazing ingredients that really make this product so very versatile. What I really love and what a huge selling point is (among many) is the box, because it clearly lists what's in the product. You can tell GlamGlow are so proud of what they have put in the mask, usually you'll find ingredients in the small print - not on this occasion! You can tell they have really thought about what to put on the packaging as it also tells you how many uses you can expect from the mask (1000 uses on spots alone and 17 uses as a full face mask)

Like I said and will keep on saying so versatile as proof below.

If I didn't love my readers so much I would not of posted up the picture below it's freaky - sorry! You can see there's still some darker sections where my skin needed a little more attention (especially my nose) 
It worked like a dream, if you don't mind the smell of toothpaste or liquorice that is. As much as I complain about the smell my skin was left glowing! Applying was a little messy for the fingers but it dries very nicely and also very quickly, I felt like I had an incredible amount of Botox injected. Crazy Tight. 

It gives you the choice of leaving it on for 5 to 20 minutes, really up to you and I guess depending on what you want from it. We love choice!

for a more random view on the mask check out the video review above! Don't forget to show your support and follow me by clicking the twitter link to the right of this post. :)

Much Love x
