Star Products of the Month • September

Monthly Beauty Favourites September
Time for another round up of what beauty items have stood out for me over the previous month and have had all my attention on a daily basis. There has been a lot of new launches occurring and many sneak previews of what is still to come on the beauty underground and my god, it is all incredible. Never have I been so indecisive about what I want to invest in so it is safe to say, my 'wishlist' is more of a 'wishbook'.

7 October 2016

Mintd Box, Your Essential Beauty Sleep Kit
One thing guaranteed to make the start of a new month instantly better is receiving my Mintd Box. Never have I been so keen to rip into packaging because I know that each month, this box holds some A-List beauty treasures. So it is time again for me to let you all into the secret of what lies in store for the October Mintd box.

Star Products of the Month • August

15 September 2016

Time for that monthly round up of what beauty products have been in the spotlight for me over the month of August. I have many, many, many faves as you shall know if you follow me on Instagram and too many to list as always so I have picked out the key stars that I think you shall all love and enjoy too. We are in that transition stage where summer holidays have ended, children are back to school and the Winter/Fall collections have made their way onto the fore front and I hate this in-between stage as I feel sad to see summer go and try to cling on to it as much as I can, but I do enjoy the autumn months when they are here but for now, we are very much still in summer dresses and sandals here in the South of France as a heatwave is in full flow! So let's have a look at what has earnt that gold star status this month ...

Rosalena • 100% Natural Face Oils

8 September 2016

Rosalena Natural Facial Oils
Being a beauty blogger I test out many skincare brands so there are times when a product really stands out and ultimately blows me away and that is exactly what has happened with a new skincare brand on to the scene, Rosalena who specialise in 100% Natural Face Oils and have created something that is skin changing.

Mintd Box • Post Summer Skin Rehab

1 September 2016

Mintd Box, Post Summer Skin Rehab
Last month I spoke about a brand new concept in beauty boxes bought to you by the marvellous Mintd Box. It is safe to say that Mintd Box caught all of our attentions and this months box theme shall indeed grab your attention even more.

Chanel Le Rouge Collection No1 • Fall/Winter 2016

25 August 2016

Chanel Le Rouge Collection No1 AW 2016
Chanel are here this Winter/Fall to tell us that it is all about red. Now I for one have been stalking the Chanel counters, eagerly awaiting this hot launch as I knew that it was going to cause a wave of opinion, but in my eyes, this was very much a collection that I was going to fall in love with. 

Lilibeth • The Brow Shaper

18 August 2016

Lilibeth, The Brow Shaper
When I posted a picture to Instagram some weeks ago showcasing my 'brow team' it got a lot of attention, especially my new brow gadget that I was raving about in that post. Just in case you didn't know, I swear by Anastasia Beverly Hills when it comes to brow products as I use them religiously, mainly the Brow wizBrow powder and Dip brow pomade. But I am here to discuss a new beauty tool that shall take all the stress out of brow grooming as we now it, because we all know how important brows are and what a 'pain in the backside' they can be to get right. 

MINTD Box • Explore | Luxury Beauty

11 August 2016

MINTD Box, August 2016
Time to talk beauty subscription boxes, but not as we know it. The beauty box game has a new contender that in my opinion shall blow a lot of other competitors out of the water. We all know that the subscription box craze has slowly died down after 'luxury' samples became more like 'samples', but what if you could receive a beauty box that actually had more than 1 full size product inside? How about 4 or 5  for instance? ...  

Clarins • Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster

7 August 2016

Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster
I was sold at the title of this product alone, 'Golden Glow booster', yes please! I have always been a Clarins body care fan as I have used and loved it for many years but have not always got along with their skincare. Saying that, one product I have used in the past and  loved was the Radiance-Plus moisturiser that was a moisturiser with a little self tan so if applied before sleep, you woke up looking golden bronze but you could only use it a few times a week or it built up to much on the skin I felt. Hence my excitement when I heard about this new product.

Star Products of the Month • July

July Beauty favourites
It is that time again where I like to share with you all what I have been loving over the past month and there has been a lot. So I have decided to split this up into two posts as I have been away on holiday for half the month and we all know that holiday beauty differs from day to day choices so I thought I would do a holiday round up post after this one to show you what my holiday faves were, hence not to make this post too long. Like I said there has been so many products that have worked wonders for me this month and I couldn't miss any out .... so let me get started with part 1! 

Feel Unique • The @Moomooi Collection

28 July 2016

Feel Unique Moomooi Collection 
Feel Unique are a company best known for their fabulous selection of online beauty brands available worldwide and I for one use their website a lot as they are one of my favourite online shopping destinations. They recently contacted me to share the news of a new and exciting accessory line that they have created, so I for one was very excited to see and know more about it. Feel Unique have collaborated with the incredible 'Insta-famous' Fashion Illustrator, Meredith Wing (aka @moomooi) best known for her floral art work, to turn everyday necessities into beauty accessories thus a partnership of beauty meets fashion. Beauty, fashion, art, flowers ... just a few things that we all love, have been brought to life through Meredith's sketches onto a phone case, make-up bag, soft kabuki brush and travel wallet.

Lancôme • Grandiose Bendable Liquid Liner *new*

22 July 2016

Lancôme Grandiose Liner
I do love when a make-up artist is behind the design of a make-up product because they  see the issues that everyday make-up users have with a product hence creating innovations that grab all of our attentions, which is what is behind Lancôme's latest product launch, Grandiose Liner link! i.e the best liquid eyeliner you shall ever come to use!

Beauty Favourites
The summer has hit us here in the South of France and the temperature has certainly risen so it's that time of year where both skincare and suncare play a bit part in my daily routine. I regularly update my Instagram to what products I am trying out as I have many that shall be making an appearance all soon. I have many favourites as always, but this month I have focused in on those products that have made a new difference to my daily beauty routine. A few have been mentioned here already but for me, they have been a true standout.
