Bourjois 'Rouge Edition Velvet' Lip Lacquers


The month of April brings a bit of Spring sunshine into our lives, but also offers the new Rouge Edition Velvet lip lacquer by Bourjois, on a 'silver platter' in pharmacies nationwide. Launching a total of eight shades, Bourjois is kindly spoiling us to more than their own version of the super trendy lip colours in liquid form, they bring us matte lip lacquers and y'all know how desperately I love my matte lip colours! For the purposes of introducing these to you, I have three shades to show you today, however I am very much positive that I shall be purchasing a few extra shades in the coming weeks, it would be wrong not to nearly complete (ahem!) the collection, don't you think?  




BOURJOIS ROUGE EDITION VELVET
RRP: 12.49 Euro

Dolce & Gabbana 'Dolce'

Today's post features what is probably the most beautiful perfume bottle I have ever seen. I am talking about the new 'Dolce' by Dolce & Gabbana as the title suggests, and I can still remember the first time I laid my eyes on a photo of the bottle online, only back in February that was, and how I excitedly tweeted about it three seconds later:





See? It was love at first sight!



Its juice was green, it had a classy black bow tie, it had the most beautiful perfume flower topper ever ( to pay tribute to Sicilian customs, crafted to portray the marzipan sculptures seen in traditional Sicilian confectioners) and it was announced to be a white floral, which is my favourite ever perfume group! My most treasured and beloved scents from my ever growing collection belong to this group. All in all, it was going to be a success for my nose, and boy was I right!

My Five Favourite Lip Balms



My lips are extremely dry in any weather, all year-round, they're drier than the Sahara desert and for a matte lip lover like me, it means my kissers must be in top condition every time I want to wear them lipsticks or any lippie for that matter. In fact, even when I don't wear a lipstick, I still need a good lip balm in order to keep them conditioned and hydrated. So I thought I'll show you my favourite lip balms of all time today, this might not be an uber interesting post, but hopefully is of some help/assistance/use to you nonetheless.

Sleek Matte Me Lip Creams


I placed an order with Boots.ie last weekend because I was looking to get the Bleach London Washing Out Liquid  shampoo which I saw on my darling buddy, Andreea's blog the other day (see her post here), as I am trying to get rid of the red pigments in my hair and attempt to get lighter locks again for when Summer comes. And of course because it's not in my nature to buy only one thing while in Boots, it turned out that this rule applied to online shopping as well because I quickly added two more make-up items into my basket.  And it was an impromptu purchase I swear, for some reason the Sleek Matte Me Lip Creams came up on my page somewhere as a recommendation, and who am I to say no to that? PS: It was also 3 for 2 across many a beauty products that day, so basically one lip cream was free - would have been rude no to.  

Price: €5.99 / each
