Too Faced Chocolate Bar

Yum. Enough said.


So, this just happened. And by this, I mean Too Faced Chocolate Bar. I am also doing a juice cleanse as I type this, so looking at the casing is making my mouth water, but what's inside is even tastier, and that is seriously saying something.

Rihanna for Viva Glam

Viva Glam Packaging


With all of the selling price going towards helping Men, Women and Children who are suffering with HIV/AIDS, this concept by MAC not only looks good, but it does a lot of good too. This time, (no doubt influenced by her extremely popular sell-out collaborations with MAC just recently), the Viva Glam campaign is fronted by the effervescent sensation that is Rihanna.

SLEEP EDIT| This Works Deep Sleep Shower Gel

Deep Sleep Shower Gel

I have been SUCH a fan of the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray for a long while now, I tried a small sample a year or so ago, and I have been hooked ever since. Every night my routine consists of spritzing some of the heavenly organic sleep magic onto my pillow, and I sleep the deepest and best ever.

NEW| Benefit Bella Bamba

Bella Bamba

I am a little obsessed with Benefit's Box O' Powders. Each one is like a perfectly packaged pick-me-up for your face. This one in particular (Bella Bamba), is a beautiful 3D Pink blush, that not only highlights and flushes the cheeks with a beautiful rose sheen, but contours with the flecks of delicious gold, giving you that professional look.

NEW| Marc Jacobs DOT Perfume

Dot

This is one of Marc Jacobs' latest perfume releases, and it's honestly one of the most addictive, fresh smelling scents out there. I have been a fan of Marc Jacobs' perfumes for a while (Daisy, Lola etc…), but Dot and Honey are some exceptional fragrances.

NEW POST| Benefit Dallas




As the Box O'Powder suggests by name, this gorgeous mahogany-brown, matte powder gives you that perfect 'outdoorsy' flush, like you've spent all day in the Texan sun. It is really great for contouring under cheek bones and one temples, as well as a beautiful flush to warm up your d├ęcolletage.

Rimmel Trilogy Pt.3| Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory

Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory

This is the lightest shade of concealers available in this range, but unlike many brands, it isn't unflattering and obvious. The reason I chose this shade, despite having an olive complexion (and always wearing some form of tan), because it is absolutely perfect for achieving a contour.

Rimmel Trilogy Pt.2| Wake Me Up Concealer in Classic Beige

Wake Me Up Concealer in Classic Beige


Applicator

If you saw yesterday's post, (you can find that here), you will know that I am doing a Rimmel Trilogy, which is basically three products from the Wake Me Up range, that I have bought and been loving lately.

Rimmel Trilogy Pt.1| Wake Me Up Foundation in Soft Beige

Wake Me Up Foundation in Soft Beige


I had been meaning to try the Rimmel 'Wake Me Up' range for a while, after hearing such fabulous reviews from friends and the whole blogosphere, so I picked up the foundation in Soft Beige, and two concealers in Ivory and Classic Beige. I have decided to do three short posts (Rimmel trilogy), so I can talk about each product properly.

REVIEW| Maybelline Master Duo Liquid Liner

Master Duo Liquid Liner


The true beauty of this product, is that it works in two ways. I just love something that shakes things up a bit, a what's better than a liner with two functions? Not damn much I can tell you. With the twist of the nib, you can go from thick to thin lines in an instant. Perfect for the lash line and then ending with a pointy cat-eye flick. Meow Maybelline.

NEW| Maybelline Baby Skin

Baby Skin



Maybelline Baby Skin is a new much anticipated arrival from the cosmetic big boy of beauty brands. Along the same theme as the Baby Lips (see my reviews here and here), this pore erasing primer is set to leave you with…well, baby soft skin.

NEW| Topshop Lipstick in Mink

Topshop Lips in Mink


I have said it before, and I will say it again. Right now in fact… I am a huge Topshop Lipstick Lover. My name is Lauren, and I am an addict. This is one of the latest colour contributions by the brand giant, and I adore it! Having never bought into Browns before, for lips, I was totally converted by Rihanna's collab with MAC, and her Bad Girl RiRi Lip creation. See that (and a fantastic dupe here).

Review| Alphah-H Liquid Gold



Alphah-H's liquid gold with glycolic acid, is designed to resurface and firm your skin. It helps with many skin complaints, from marks to lines and having tested this product myself around 5 times (on alternative nights), I can conclusively see a difference in my appearance.

NEW| Benefit lolli tint

lolli tint


This new cheek/lip stain by Benefit is so so gorgeous. It's a sweet pastel purple treat, that is super on-trend and really flattering. Last summer I became obsessed with RiRi Boy (from Rihanna's collab with MAC), which was a matte lilac lipstick, that just looks stunning on. This colour totally reminds me of that. It's a beautiful violet hue, that warms up the cheeks and lips, without being too purple and gets me mega excited for spring.

It's sort of like a colour you could imagine a Cadbury's Mini Egg being (oh god, now I want some chocolate…), fresh, cute and…well, just delicious.

It also lasts, and then lasts some more. I strongly advise blending straight after application, or you could easily end up with some very funky looking lilac tribal-esque stripes on your face. Cool, but perhaps not the desired effect.



The Bottle

As with all the other Benefit tints, the packaging is as divine as the product. It is perfect to compliment a powder blush when applied beforehand, and the same with a shade of lip colour, for extra oomph and longevity.




On the Skin

Blended


As you can see its a beautiful sweet treat of a colour, and I personally know I will be rocking this all the way to 2015 and beyond. It costs £24.50 and you can pick yourself up one from here.



Lots of Love,



(call me lolli) x

COMING SOON| Benefit Gimmie Brow

Gimmie Brow in Medium/Dark

The Applicator

Gimmie Brow is a brush on fibre gel, which clings to hair and gives you volume and shape to your brows, in a really natural yet full way. This is the Medium/Dark shade, but for you fair-haired lovelies, there is a lighter shade too. The brush is tapered, so brilliant for blending, and the tip is designed for shaping perfection,*love*.

I was lucky enough to be given this by my sister when she returned from the US, because I simply could not wait to try it, (I'm a slight brow obsessive…), but it should be available in the UK around March this year.


Below are the results. Literally this works better than any gel or powder I have ever tried, for strong, controlled and instant brow perfection!


Before - Natural Brows


Left Brow with Gimmie Brow, Right is natural

Brows with Gimmie Brow

As you can see, this product works really well and I'm sure it will be a massive hit when it launches in the UK. Groomed, thick and Cara-esque, the perfect set (of brows…obv). GIMMIE (literally the name is no lie).


Get ready to rock the Power Brow,


Lots of Love,
