Whats Chic This Week...

Hi all

So I've jumped on the Revlon just bitten balm stain bandwagon (that was a mouthful!) and I have really been loving these fab products...they are definitely worth the hype!

I only have two colours at the minute, Romantic which is a pretty red and Rendezvous which is a coral ornagey shade. I've got my eyes on two others I really like the look of and I can't wait to pick them up.

This week I've been wearing the shade romantic non-stop, and normally I'm quite scared of red lipstick. Its not that I don't wear bright colours, I do, but there is something about red which I think I cant pull off. But this lip stain is different and so easy to use.

It has a minty smell and makes the lips tingle a bit when applied, a feeling I love. Its really moisturising too so my lips don't dry out which is a massive plus for someone who has constantly dry lips. And the colour pay off is excellent! I was really surprised as I thought it would be quite light but you can go full whack and get brighter red lips or just dab it on for a lighter look. Very versatile. Also this lasted on my lips for really does stain your lips and I cant say enough good things!

Overall I would highly recommend it to all you lovelies, and whats better is that its currently on sale in Boots and Superdrug for £5.99, normally £7.99.

What are your thoughts?

I don't need, but I really want...

Hi all!

So I'm currently on a self-imposed shopping ban! Though my friends would beg to differ....and while I say shopping ban I really mean 'expensive' purchases. It would just be criminal if I couldn't buy anything! ;-)

Anyway after the said ban was introduced (and I should explain its because I'm in saving mode for something rather special!) I have been so tempted to spend! And because I can't physically buy these things I thought I could post about them on here and share my love for them! HeHe.

So here they are...

- Top Shop Leather Biker Jacket £165

- YSL Touch Eclat Foundation £28

- Carvela Studded Flats (John Lewis) £95

- Monica Vinader 18ct Rose Gold Fiji Bracelet - £125

Ahhh I want them all but for now I can only dream....but I guess we all have these types of lists so let me know what you want but don't really need. It might make me feel better! ;-)

August Magazine Freebies...

Hi all!

I spotted some magazines in my local WHSmiths with some great freebies, so here they are...


Th cover star for this September issue is the beautiful Rosie Huntington-Whitely, and you get the choice of 1 of 3 Jemma Kidd Define Stay Put Liners worth £14! I picked up the bronze colour 'copper' and it looks lovely.


Supermodel Cindy Crawford is the star of Tatler this month, and in the magazine you get a free trail size of the new Lancome Hypnose Star mascara. I quite like the hypnose mascara and so I'm hoping this one will be just as good as the original.

Will you be picking any of these up?

balance Me. Rose Otto Lip Salve...

Hi all!

Hope your all doing well. So I'm back with my a mini review of my product of the moment which is...

Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve by the company Balance Me. I got a full size of this free in last months Glamour magazine and I'm so glad I did because I love it!

I'm the type of person who always has dry lips, I'm not sure why and its really annoying but its something I have to live with. I'm also obsessed with lip balms I have all different kinds form cheaper Vaseline to the more expensive eight hour cream. But I always keep my eyes peeled for new ones (not that I need any more!).

On the website this is described as...
'A daily beauty must for salve addicts! It will plump, smooth, give long-lasting protection, an leave lips kiss-ably soft.'

The salve is 100% natural and petroleum free, it contains organic Shea, cocoa butters, jojoba oil and many other great ingredients. This brand is really great for producing natural products with skin-friendly ingredients and no nasty chemicals.

This salve is super moisturising it is nice and thick just how I like my lip products and it really hydrates my lips really well. It also lasts for quite a few hours so I don't need to re-apply for a while, it does have a very strong smell, quite herbally but I actually like the smell. For those out there that don't like strong smells you may not like it, but the smell does disappear so I think it would be fine.

This product does remind me of eight hour cream which I also love so if you have that you can give this a miss....but I love it. :-)

You can buy this from the Balance Me website (here) and it costs £12 for 10ml (not cheap by any means, which is why I'm glad I got a back-up in Glamour mag).

Have you tried this, or will you be buying it?

New Fragrance Alert! Miss Dior Le Parfum

Hi all!

So today I was lucky enough to have a sneak peek at the new Dior perfume which will be releasing towards the end of August! I cannot tell you how excited I am for its release, in a nutshell its....AMAZING!!!

The fragrance will be called Miss Dior Le Parfum, and from the information I managed to find it is a rewriting of the original Miss Dior which has been transformed into something intense yet delicate. It is a floral symphony with notes of rose absolute, vanilla, Mandarin and amber.

This fragrance is a intense Eau de Parfum, essentially similar to a pure perfume which means it has excellent lasting power and will linger for absolutely ages! And as a result it will come in a 40ml bottle the price tag of which reflects both its name and nature. This perfume wonder will retail for £62.99! Expensive...yes, but worth it...100%!

Also as you can see from the picture the bottle is in the same style as the other Miss Dior fragrances however there are a few differences. The liquid inside the bottle for one is a darker colour probably because its an intense perfume. Also there is a silver plaque with the name embossed on it, and it has a lovely metal bow in the lid. Its beautiful!

Having smelt it I have to say it is such a classic scent, very powerful but not so that it gives you a headache. Its in stark contrast to the barrage of 'young' scents which have been released in recent years, I'm thinking Lady Million, Escada, Gucci Guilty etc. but its not to say I don't like these fragrances because I do but the Dior really is in a league of its own. It is grown up, sophisticated and it reminds me of a strong Arabic scent, which if you've smelt any you'll know are very unique and powerful. I have to say I haven't fallen in love with a perfume like I have with this in a long time.

I really cant say enough good things about this fragrance and I really want to have it now! But I guess another few weeks won't hurt. And all I can say to you all is...go and try it when it releases, and then you'll know what I mean. After all its not described as a Couture perfume for no reason

So are you as excited as I am??
