Lovely new liglosses from Estee Lauder

How annoying is the heat and humidity right now for make-up? Sorry for the lack of inspiring posts, I simply have been wearing minimalist make-up to make sure it doesn’t sweat all down my face – lovely! However that doesn't affect my obsession with lipglosses and I am loving Estee Lauder’s newest glosses, the Pure Colour Gloss collection which is available now! It is a collection of 34 shades in 3 finishes as well as a custom collection by world-renowned makeup artist and Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux. The collection features the exclusive True Vision™ Technology that wraps pigments in a crystal-like coating to provide intense, brilliant colour and shine.

My favourite shade so far is the lovely neutral Peach Sizzle, which is shimmery but not too shiny and is perfect for wearing during the day to brighten up your look without looking too obvious! I also love the gorgeous gold packaging as well, which looks great with my cream/gold Marc Jacobs handbag J They are also fairly reasonable at £15. Who else has tried the new range from Estee Lauder? 



** I will update the posts when I get home tonight - forgot my camera with the photos on our the lipglosses - duh! **

Liz Earle Flight Essentials Kit review


As you know I went away recently to Spain and thanks to restricted liquid limits on airlines now I am unable to take my trusty The Body Shop vitamin E face mist as it's over 100ml. For some reason my normal/slightly dry skin doesn't get on well with aeroplane air and I always seem to develop spots/dry flaky skin within an hour of landing!! I also seem to go over the weight allowance every flight (me - surely not?! ;-)) so absolutely loved this new Liz Earle Flight Essentials Kit (£15.75) which includes four of the most popular beauty must-haves in cabin-friendly sizes. They include Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer 30ml, Skin Repair Moisturiser dry/sensitive 15ml, Superbalm 5g and Hand Repair 15ml. I'm a big fan of the Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer, which is similar to TBS Vitamin E face mist and is great in refreshing dry skin and giving it a boost. It also contains vitamin E and hydrating organic aloe vera and rose-scented geranium.

What other products do you use for air travel - any other tips to avoid dry skin?

Clarins Instant Sun Light Eye Quartet & Liner Palette


I have mega post holiday blues!!! This time last week I was on the beach in Spain - gutted :( I have got loads of blog posts planned for my favourite holiday make-up and skincare products starting from now! I absolutely love the new Clarins Instant Sun Light Eye Quartet & Liner Palette (£29.00) which has four gorgeous bronze eye colours : pearly ginger, iridescent cinnamon, matte cocoa, sparkling paprika and a metallic nutmeg eyeliner. I do love experimenting with new colours but always love shimmery bronze colours when I am on holiday and this palette accentuates your tan perfectly. The eye shadows are really pigmented and blend in easily - love love love this!
