I’ve always been a bit scared to wear darker lipstick shades. Perhaps it’s due to my pale complexion or the fact that I don’t want to appear as if I’ve stepped out of the 90s grunge scene. It wasn’t until my recent foray into sheer lipsticks that the pale pinks of MAC Angel and Topshops Innocent have been cast aside for a slightly darker, sheerer alternative. Chantecaille has always been a brand on my wishlist to try but with a wide variety of products to choose from it can be a little overwhelming at first. With any high end purchase, in my opinion the lipsticks are always a great place to start.
Back in my early high school days, Impulse sprays were all the rage. You wouldn’t find a girl who didn’t have them and trips to Boots meant picking up the latest Impulse scent. It’s been quite a while since I’ve last tried them, but they’ve always had a great selection of scents to choose from. I remember stocking up on the Goddess scent when it came out but sadly when P.E classes were no longer compulsory, my Impulse collection reduced and I moved onto perfumes. Now Impulse are back in action, all grown up, featuring 11 fragrances developed by the world-renowned fragrance experts of Dior and Calvin Klein. Here’s what they have to offer.
Sadly, the music festival season is non existant for me this year. For the past three years I’ve been to both Glastonbury and T In the Park and along the way I’ve came up with some helpful tips on how to keep your hair lasting throughout the whole time. As someone who has to wash their hair everyday it was tough adjusting to the fact that I’d be unable to wash it for 4 or 5 days, eek! Of course I’d be armed with my Batiste Dry Shampoo incase of emergencies but I came up with a solution on how to make it last even longer.
If you’re an avid reader of beauty blogs, you have probably came across a Diptyque candle or two. These luxury candles have been making their way through the blogosphere and after many hours of adding them to my shopping list and clicking away, I couldn’t resist any longer. Rather than take a gamble and buy a full sized candle, I came across the Diptyque Classic Coffret which features three of their most loved candles in miniature form. Here’s what I thought of them.
I remember when I first started wearing lipstick that I thought sheer lipsticks were a bit of a waste of money. I couldn’t understand why people were paying for a lipstick which doesn’t have a full colour payoff until I discovered these beauties. Sheer lipsticks are the perfect excuse to pull off darker, more daring shades without looking overdone. I don’t think I could pull off a full red lip during the day but I have no problem with a slightly sheerer alternative.
