Anastasia Beverley Hills| Liquid Lipgloss

Hey Ya'll!

I've been browsing the internet, in the hopes finding a lipgloss that I like. I mean, I like lip glosses but it takes more than just a bit of shine to interest me in them. I'll be honest I'm more of a matte lip kind of girl. BUT I was more than intrigued in these lip glosses, I've heard many good things and I wanted to really put the gloss to the test.
I chose a dark reddish plum colour, I like a bold lip and decided that if I was going to go for it, why not go for it hard.


How did that little blonde hair get there! Whoops..

This Lipgloss can be found on Amazon ranging in price from £25.00-£29.99 - click this link to view on their website.

I've been really impressed with this, the colour pay-off is amazing, the way it applies just glide on. The texture on the lips is a little tacky but not sticky or gloopy which is great.
I personally would like to grow a collection in these lip glosses as they are just what I am looking for. I am also totally in love with their liquid lipsticks (a blog post will be coming at some point for this too) as they are beautiful.

Hope you enjoyed this post, I'll see you soon!

Love C xx

Lancôme Gel Éclat Clarifying Cleanser| Review

I wanted to do a short post on something I've been loving that I rediscovered on my birthday. This Lancôme cleanser!

My skin is combination, I get dry patches usually around the outside of my face and my T-zone gets oily. I find this cleanser is so smooth and easy to work into your skin, although when you first squeeze some into your hand you may think it is thick and sticky- but it's not! The pearly white gel sells for around £23 but it can vary from where you buy this. Although it is deemed as quite expensive- you don't need a lot of it to go a long way. 

The cleanser is targeted to normal to combination skin and has a fresh light floral scent to it, which is something  I would normally avoid because my skin can be so sensitive, but alas I am yet to get a bad reaction! The cleanser contains White Lotus, Rose de France and Japanese Cedar bud, all of which were all derived naturally.

Lancôme suggests using this twice a day but so far I've been using it once, just because of pure laziness I guess, and sometimes I like to alternate between the Origins face scrub in the mornings. 

I would honestly recommend giving this a go if you're looking for a new cleanser, or at least see if there is a sample at your nearest shop that sells this.
Let me know your thoughts on this cleanser or if you pick up a sample, let me know how you got on!

Love C. xx

Highlight on Fleek!| Champagne Pop by Jaclyn Hill

Okay, so firstly may I just say that when this arrived in the post I was so excited- that I was welling up. My eyes became damp at the excitement of opening the parcel to find this beauty of a product, created by a beauty of a woman.. Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector by Jaclyn Hill in collaboration with Sephora.

If you do not know about Jaclyn Hill please check out a few of her videos Here!

She is a bubbly, fun and genuine lady who has a passion for makeup and I adore watching her videos. She makes you laugh and you really learn a thing or two!

I never really thought highlight brought much to a makeup look until I saw Jaclyn's videos, honestly it brightens and changes the look completely!

So without further a due, here is my review (although you probably know what I'm going to say) on Champagne Pop!

To start with the packaging is so so so beautiful, the gold reflective box is so classy and having her picture and her words of wisdom on the back add a little personal touch of Jaclyn too.

Champagne pop is a beautiful gold highlight with a pink undertone. It adds dimension, lifts your face and brings a beautiful glow.. I cannot say how beautiful this highlight is... just look at it, it is so pigmented. You only need a little of this, which I love because you know this product will last as well.

This product is limited edition, I managed to get mine off Ebay from a Uk seller so that I didn't have to pay oversea charges (I know, cheapskate..but hey whatcha gunna do?)

The best thing about this highlight is that it is designed to work with every single skin tone! Amazing! I personally apply it to the places I want people to notice, so for example my cheekbones, cupids bow, under my brow bone etc, and honestly it has changed me. *Puts hands together and praises Jaclyn and Sephora for having a baby this good*

For more tips on how to wear this you can watch this video and see how Jaclyn uses it.

See ya soon!

Love C. xx
