EOTD - Soft taupe and purple eyes

Sunday, 19 June 2011

It’s been such a long time since I got out my eyeshadows to play with, I took inspiration from the “Make up store” magazine and saw a lovely golden taupe wash on the lids and striking purple lined on the bottom of the eyes.

When I do a hot smoky night look I tend to reach for Velvet Teddy as my nude matt lipstick to finish the look. Love the creamy texture.

So sorry this is late.
1. Dr Bronner’s Magic Soap ”Unscented baby mild” -
I’ve actually been using this product for 1.5 months and I can H O N E S T L Y say I LOVE it. It’s a 18 in 1 soap you can use it as a shampoo, toothpaste, wash your laundry, wash your pets, wash your make up brush, body wash the list goes on. What prompt me to purchase was a night a Whole Food Market I saw two ladies hoovering around the 946ml bottle saying how fantastic the product was. It was on promotion for £10.99 I didn’t buy it on the spot I went back home googled and watched youtube reviews then went back the next day. I’ve been using this as body wash and make up brush cleaner. It’s going to last me for YEARS!
2. MAC Fluidline blacktrack - 
Now that summer has finally hit the UK the weather is getting more humid, and you’ll need fool proof make up for the hot weather. This stuff does not budge or give me raccoon eyes.
3. Lily Lolo In the buff foundation - 
Been using this everyday I swear it has healing properties my face is almost cleared up from my hormonal spots and I can sleep in the mineral foundation without worrying that it will clog my pores. (note: I always take every single bit of make up off my face before bed) Tested when I take a few hour naps my face still looks flawless.
4. Davidoff Cool Water -
 My favourite type of scents has to be light and fresh been switching it up from my usual CK one perfume.
5. Lovea  l’argan oil
 When my hair looks like crap I like to use this to boast the shine and softness.
6. White Glo ToothpasteYup  I’m putting this toothpaste as my favourites using in conjunction with my Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush this has been whitening my teeth.
7. Lush Charity Pot 
 I just LURRVE the chocolate vanilla smell, it’s so divine I can eat the cream.

Lovea bio pure argan oil part one review

Thursday, 9 June 2011

Product Name: l’argan
Weight/Price: 100ml for £16.99
Made in: N/A
Where to buy: 
Product Description: 100% Pure Argan Oil (not certified organic)
Argan Oil is rich in Essential Fatty Acids (often referred to as Vit F) and Vit E, it is the undisputed anti-wrinkle treatment. Used as a hair mask it fortifies the hair shaft and brings life back to dull hair.
Argan Oil or Moroccan Oil has been used for centuries by local tribes in North Africa but only recently has it come to the attention of cosmetic scientists. Research shows that the oil is packed with beautifying ingredients like vitamin E, phenols, carotenes and essential fatty acids, in fact it is over 70% oleic & linoleum acids. These essential fatty acids are also known as the skin vitamin - Vitamin F, and just like other vitamins the body is unable to produce its own Vitamin F.
Argan oil has a strong aroma which fades quickly, the smell reminds most people of fresh olive stones.
Argan oil increases skin elasticity, nourishes and helps normalise the skin. Argan Oil is a 100% natural skin food and regular use will keep your skin in tip top condition.
Lovea (Copar) oils are supplied in an airtight glass bottle with a sealed pump dispenser at the top. Prior to shipping we store bottles in dark boxes to keep the oils fresh and preserve the anti-oxidants. Once opened we recommend the oil is stored away from direct sunshine and heat sources.

Full Ingredients
Argan Oil (Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil)
Personal Experience: When I received my package I was really excited about this product, I have tried the kiehl’s argan oil with no luck and was about to purchase Moroccan oil until I saw it was filled with silicones. This product is 100% argan as its main ingredient rich in vitamin e and noted for liquid gold in some counties. The product comes in a glass bottle with a pump, not so great for travelling. The sticker label is written in French with a little blub of English. I had to seek mypure website for directions on use. When I first visited mypure the only directions was to apply the product prior to washing hair for treatment. Right now the website states “Best applied to moist skin straight after bathing or showering. Add a few drops to your favourite moisturiser for an extra anti-oxidant boost! As a hair mask comb through dry or towel dry hair. Can be washed out after 5 mins with Lovea Argan Oil Shampoo or left in until next wash.” So I will be doing a further review using the product for my skin next month.
The pump shoots the product quite rapidly and I tend to spill it on furnishing, it is best to pump a few drops into your hand and then massage onto the scalp. The smell does pong, a very unpleasant smell but it soon disappears. I usually leave the product on for 5-10 mins and then use my Australian organics haircare. The oil is quickly absorbed within seconds and I felt the benefits instantly.
After shampooing I notice my hair was a lot smoother and had no tangles making it really easy to apply my conditioner. It did not weigh my hair down at all and my hair was revived back to health. Once dried my hair looked a lot shinier and silky smooth. My hairdresser even commented about my hair when I was at the hairdressers on Monday she said my hair felt really soft and asked me when I last washed my hair.
Price: 5/5
Quality: 5/5
Packaging: 4/5
Overall: 4/5

Would I re-purchase again? YESSSS, it working wonders for my hair I use it once a week and not only my hair looks so good it is much easier to manage.

alva coleur lip balm review

Where to buy:

Active ingrediants:
Personal Experience: There’s a lot of moisturising properties in this lip balm, such as Jojoba oil, vitamin E and Olive squalene and shea butter.
It was a challenge as the only lip balm that works for me is kiehl’s #1. Without kiehl’s my lips is chapped flaky and dry, using any other products my lips will dry within 10 minutes. Using this every single day, I notice it condition my lips very well, in total I would reapply for 3-4 times a day.
The product line has two colour choices I was afraid to try the bright purple colour as I like my lips to look natural during the day. So I choose soft peach colour, on application it instantly smoothes my lips and surprisingly no tint of colour as it shows up clear. It smells quite sweet, must be the apricot the applicator comes with a sponge tip and is easy to apply on the lips.
It makes a fantastic primer for lipstick, I have notice near the end of my trial the lips will chapped, but overall I’m really satisfied with the lip balm.

Price: 4/5
Quality: 4/5
Packaging: 5/5
Overall: 4/5

Used around 10% of product over the month
smells great
moisturise and makes lips soft

lips starting chapping near the end of the trial
Would I re-purchase again? Maybe, besides kiehl’s this lip balm is pretty decent, you will get instant soft smackers, and smells very good too.
