Berry-beautiful Part 2 ; 50 shades of blush…

Berry Berry nice ; I’m head over Autumn leaves in love with BERRY blush

RatingBerry Berry nice ; So following on from my berry nice lipstick post yesterday from the feedback I’m sensing we’re liking the juicy-theme which is great!  So if you’re going all-in for plum like me I’d recommend teaming your berry lips WITH a berry blush ; but going a little lighter on the rest.

Wicked Wednesday ; how Berry nice to meet you

Inside scoop ; No need to give the apple to the teacher, wear this seasons blushing berry deep red  hues on the apples of your cheeks as well, for the perfect ‘just-in-from-the-cold cheek’ blush. As I move into my Autumn / Winter wardrobe (actually did I ever STOP wearing boots – nope!) I reckon berry blush looks amazing with black, teal or any of the latest must wear Fall shades.

 

So how to wear and which one choose…? Read more

It’s T time – Treat Try Tummy Tea TODAY!

It’s 5 T time : that stands for TREAT TRY TUMMY TEA TODAY!

Rating ; Tuesday = T-Time that stands for T for Treat Try tummy Tea; ok not STRICTLY a beauty product BUT I always feel if you look after the inside then the outside looks a bit better and certainly you FEEL better. So Tuesday’s Top TREAT is TEA. Herbal of course, high quality bien sur, beautifully designed but of course…

Inside scoop ; They say beauty is skin deep I say dig deeper TEA could just be the cure for all Tuesday ills and more.  And it doesn’t come more tasty tempting and tea-like than the quirky range from T2.  Discovered – well ok lured into – their store in Oxford Street I find myself T-eed up and ready to rave about T2.

Back to School skin BLUES or just September skin sadness ; perk yourself up with this CLEAN skincare range

Rating ; Back to School ok maybe you’ve got kids, or maybe NOT and you’ve just got sensitive skin ; often kids and sensitive skin mix and not in a good way ESPECIALLY at this time of year. As a mum the LAST thing you need on top of back to School madness is skin rashes, skin troubles and bad hair days; sooooo much else to JUGGLE.

Inside scoop ; SHH don’t tell the Teacher (or maybe take her some of this instead of an apple ;)!) here is a natural, no nasties, gentle on young ones, kind to older ones range which will pretty much suit all skin types. Oh and it’s got a CUTE name which makes me come over all Bewitched…Pure Potions come on, how fab a name is that.  So now good skin doesn’t take a magic wand…READ MORE

Rating ; On a rainy Sunday, before kids go back to school, things can get a little MEH so here’s a product that will have you zen-like and labelling school uniform with a gentle smile in a heartbeat.  Don’t be Lavender Blue try a little Lavender oil.

Inside scoop ; if you’ve not discovered the wonder (ok actually near MIRACLE) benefits of lavender oil then check out this power-packed duo.  One sits in Vogue’s hall of Fame – ohhhhh – one sits in amazon’s top sellers. Both worth a try ; both do a similar job.  I discovered the ‘steal’ vs spree version when I realised how much I was using, so longer-term needed a little more cost-effective alternative….read on

Bright eyes ; Spree vs Steal, Luxe vs High street : Eyes-down for the results

Spree vs Steal ; Charlotte and Kate go head to head in the ring! Who’s gonna win??? Eyes down for the big reveal…

Rating ; The eyes have it with these 2 hot, on trend must try palettes for effortless ‘nude’ eyes. So which is it Spree vs. STEAL? I put 2 pretty much EYE-dentical palettes under the microscope...

Inside scoop ; Nude eyes – must buys; suit all shades from subtle Sunday to sizzling Saturday everyone needs a palette of suit-all nude eyeshadow.  But do you splurge or save…sure we’d all like both.  So I tested Rimmel London nudes eyes vs Charlotte Tilbury’s holiday eyes Xmas ’17 (well I will be if I can get my hands on it….).

Palettes are my go-to format for eyes, cheeks and anything powdery.  Why? Gives you options, lets you experiment and you rarely get bored.

So the question is Spree?  Or Steal? …read ON…Charlotte T or Kate Moss for Rimmel…
