Teint-ed Love

Don't you just hate it when a much loved product is discontinued, leaving a gaping hole in your make-up bag/fridge/life (edit accordingly)... I loathe writing about products that no longer exist or are becoming increasing hard to get hold of as numbers dwindle. Sadly it is the case on this occasion, so I am sorry in advance for not sharing this with you before now.

Love: Kjaer Weis Foundation

Sometimes I love a product or the very thought of a product before I have even tried it and this is one of those times. 

Those of you who have been following my blog for a while will know about my love affair with organic make-up brand Kjaer Weis (I have yet to be disappointed by a product) and I am hugely excited by the prospect of trying out the newly released (in the UK) Cream Foundation.

Lavender Blues

A few months ago I went on a little bit of a hand sanitizer frenzy (don't ask) and purchased every organic and natural version that I could find and hadn't already tried. Some I liked, some I inevitably didn't. This is one hand sanitizer that was a success - mostly.

I am ever on the hunt for natural and organic concealers that perform well on all fronts and believe it or not, they're are few and far between...

Top Five: Berry Stained Lips

The obsession for Berry (or wine) stained lips has been here for a while and it doesn't look set to be disapearing anytime soon with models for Christian Dior, Lavin and Vera Wang shows at New York Fashion Week all sporting variations on the theme.

Remember, a berry lip works best with a nude eye so keep things light on your lids with just a touch of shadow or a little liner and mascara. Don't quite fancy a full on dramatic lip? Why not try blotting and working off some of the lipstick to achieve a softer stained effect?
