My fave new lippy!

Despite owning hundreds of lipsticks, this is the one I have been reaching for over the past few weeks - L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Boosting Serum Lipstick in Freshly Rosy (S106). 
It has a boosting serum at the heart of the lipstick, containing Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid, to hydrate and plump with moisture. This may explain the strange  smell and taste, which reminds me of old school lipsticks my gran used to lend me when I was a child! 


I love the colour though and the softness on my lips, so a winner for me despite the taste! Has anyone else tried these new lippies?

Revlon Grow Luscious mascara


I was sent a sample of the new Revlon Grow Luscious mascara a few weeks ago and have been using it for the past few weeks after my sister raved about it having purchased on holiday in the US. I must admit I have never previously tried a Revlon mascara as I am usually a Maybelline fan, so this was a first for me. This is the first Revlon mascara that helps lashes grow stronger, while claiming to add length and volume. As you can see from the photo below, it certainly has added volume & length to my lashes.


The brush size is huge and resembles Benefit's Bad Lash or Dior's Dior show mascara for size and quality but only costs £9.99 (currently £2 off in Superdrug at the moment. I think I need to try it for a bit longer to prove whether my lashes have actually grown but if they do - then great! It certainly  feels nice on my eyelashes and doesn't irritate like other mascaras.

What do you think? Has anyone else tried this mascara & seen results so far?

♥ Haringtons in Winchester review ♥


On Saturday I was lucky enough to visit Haringtons again for some pampering, this time in Winchester! The salon is conveniently located in Winchester city centre and has a vibrant atmosphere thanks to being in the middle of all the hustle and bustle (I love people watching!) I was treated to a cut, half a head highlights and a blow dry and you can see the fantastic results below!


What I really loved about my consultation was my stylist being really helpful and working out what colours would make my blonde hair a bit more natural. As it's sadly approaching autumn I wanted a more natural look which I think has been achieved! What do you think? I love it!

If you are live in the Winchester area then I recommend this salon if you have cash to spend. It's not the cheapest, but probably the best in the area. You get what you pay for with hair treatments I think and I would certainly go back!

I also had a fab new product by Kerastase used on me called Elixir Ultime. It's a versatile beautifying oil appropriate for all hair types and contains a combination of camellia, argan, maize and pracaxi oils. It leaves your hair feeling ultra nourished, protected and enhanced and very soft! Only downside is it costs a whopping £32.75!! Would you spend that much on a hair product?
