GOSH LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICKS

Liquid matte lipsticks have become my latest obsession. Never being able to get my hands on the famous Kylie liquid mattes – I have always been in search to get my hands on an alternative.  So you can say I was more than excited when I found out one of my most favourite high street brands were releasing their own range.

So what is this new range you ask? Only released since Wednesday these are the beautiful Liquid Matte Lips by GOSH, available in 8 stunning shades.

Liquid matte swatches

Each shade is absolutely exquisite and I am especially in love with the pinky tones (which I’m surprised about as I often go towards nude tones) . With its thin lip applicator it allows you to apply on with ease and precision, it instantly feels soft on the lips and dries almost instantly leaving a lovely matte finish. The colour pigment has a crazy colour pay off and is both intense and bold.  Its long-lasting and feel non-drying which is always a plus with these  matte lipsticks. Only thing however, I did find my lips felt very sticky which at first felt very uncomfortable, but the more you wear them, the more I didn’t notice. Its long-wearing too, of course if you eat and drink it will need a little touch up.

The packaging I find is simple yet elegant and shows off each shade in all its glory. Because of the consistency and size of this lipstick, it will last you a while and find you can get many applications with this. As a bonus – it also adds volume to your lips too which I love. My favourite shade is Nougat Crisp 007, a beautiful matte nude tone, it has become my new go to.

KORRES | WHITE TEA & FREESIA BODY MILK

Korres is a brand I only discovered last year and has become one of my top loves. This beautiful brand has a lovely range of products using only natural ingredients. Whether your looking for a soft moisturiser or a gorgeous fragrance, Korres has it all. (Oh did I mention they cater for men too?!)

Korres White Tea Body Cream

I shared my love for their Rose range in a previous post here.  But today I wanted to share my love for this body care beauty. This is White Tea, Bergamot & Freesia Body Milk a beautiful light body moisturiser in the most bright and stunning packaging.

This light body milk is so easy to apply and absorbs extremely well, keeping your skin feeling moisturised and nourished. With its delicate-subtle blend aroma and key ingredient of White tea it does not only make this scent calming but makes your feel so refreshed.

This cream has some key benefits too. Enriched with vitamins and trace elements it works well as a skin boosting agent. Something that is needed at this time of year. I find this cream is best to use on dry skin as you will benefit from the key effects of this product. I did try this on damp skin and found it slide off my skin rather than absorbing.

All in all its a fabulous body care product and if you want to feel luxurious then give this yellow beauty a try?

Have you ever tried Korres?

MUA GLOW BEAM HIGHLIGHTER | MINI-REVIEW

I just love a highlighter – Do you?

I love adding a glow to my face. If you are wanting a highlighter that not only shows a natural radiance to your cheeks but is also inexpensive? Would you believe me if I said this gold gem is only £5?

MUA Gold Highlighter

This is the beautiful MUA Luxe Glow Beam . There is only one word to describe it – Stunning. It is a gorgeous dusting powder to help create a pretty reflecting lift. I love how this can bring any simple or dramatic makeup to life. This highlighter is not only long-lasting but keeps you glowing for hours!

Its unique rotary packaging helps to crush the powder into fine particles.  I did have a faulty problem with mine and found it spun around without releasing any product. If you find this happens to you, the packaging is pretty easy to come apart (Tip: Use a pair of tweezers to release it from the bottom) giving you easy access to use.

I have to say its on my list as one of my top 3 highlighters and love the price point on this baby too. So why not give this a try and add a touch of gold to your skin….

If you love having a glow/shine to your cheeks – whats your favourite product to use?

HOW TO PICK YOUR STATEMENT BOOTS

A great pair of boots is like a gorgeous necklace or that must have accessory. A boot is a type of footwear that is timeless and adds that extra accent to any outfit. I absolutely love a classic pair of leather black boots but why not upgrade to a bit of suede, colour or even tassel?

Boots can now add character and fun to a simple outfit which is something I love to play around. Most of all I find boots to be the most comfortable type of heel. I could last all day in a pair as oppose to pair of stilettos. Boots are so versatile and can be worn all year round. Whether you want to wear in summer with a cute dress or layer up in winter with a cosy knitwear.

Statement Boots

So if you are looking for a statement boot – here are some of my top picks.

  1. New Look – Black Patent Boot
  2. ASOS – Elan Heeled Boot
  3. Public Desire – Mirror Heeled Boot

These are my top three brands I love to shop from – Not only can these make a statement, they are lovey quality, comfy and absolute great prices too. ASOS also have up to 70% off their sale – If you are someone who is not quite ready to make a full blown statement, but want to add a little something – ASOS is a great place to have a browse.

Here are some key things that make a statement boot

  • Material – You can go for a classic leather, suede or be more daring with a patent or floral pattern
  • Heel – If you are not quite ready for a flash pattern. You can always start with a heel focus.
  • Height – Wear a heel height thats comfortable for you. I love to wear 2-3 inches, as they are wearable, comfortable and still make a great focus to your outfit

 

What are your favourite pair of boots?
