Paul & Joe – Autumn 2015 Lip Treatment Balm

Paul & Joe – Autumn 2015 Lip Treatment Balm

Just a quick review today on this very cute little tin of Lip Treatment Balm* from Paul & Joe Beaute. This is a limited edition product, part of their Autumn 2015 collection. I just love the bee and flower print on the little round tin, it’s so cute and bees are so popular at the moment. One of the reasons it has bees on is that the ingredients include Honey and Ginger. There is also another limited edition variant of the Lip Treatment Balm that contains Earl Grey Tea, Bergamot and Lemon, and the tin is decorated in a floral design. Other ingredients include Olive Oil and Lavender Oil to help hydrate the lips and lock in moisture. This will be a great little product for Winter, I like to go out walking in the cold weather so I’ll be able to keep this in my pocket to prevent my lips from getting chapped. The product itself is a translucent honey coloured balm, very different from your usual opaque...

New Autumn 2015 make-up from Clarins

New Autumn 2015 make-up from Clarins

I can’t believe we’re talking about Autumn already! This year is just flying by, before we know it it’ll be Christmas! Clarins have recently launched their new Autumn 2015 make-up range, a seductive collection focusing on the eyes. The new products allow you to easily transform from soft beige and fresh pink daytime shades to sultry evening looks with purples and carbon blacks. I’ve been lucky enough to try out three of their new products: Clarins Ombre Matte Eyeshadows* – these two eyeshadows have a unique cream-to-powder formula, so they apply smoothly like a cream but then have the hold of a powder. One of the ingredients is Bamboo Powder and this helps to give the shadows a matte and even finish. The shades are called Carbon and Heather – Carbon is a dark shade, almost black, and should be used sparingly or smudged to give a sultry look, whereas Heather is a smoky purple shade and can be used all over the eyelid or stippled into the crease of the eye.

Twig + Dot – Sugar & Spice Hand Poured Candle

Twig + Dot – Sugar & Spice Hand Poured Candle

I first came across this beautiful brand of candles at The City Girls blogger event that I attended in Leeds a few weeks ago where I was lucky enough to pick up a mini Carousel votive candle with scents of marshmallow, vanilla and cream. I immediately fell in love with the plain white jars and simple silver grey branding. All Twig + Dot candles are made from a custom blend of soy and mineral wax and each candle is hand poured in Great Britain. Today I am going to be telling you about one of the new Twig + Dot candle fragrances for Autumn 2015, it’s called Sugar & Spice and it’s scented with sweet vanilla and cinnamon. Sugar & Spice is a warm fragrance, mainly of sweet creamy vanilla but there is just a hint of spicy cinnamon. I like that the cinnamon isn’t too overpowering, it reminds me of a lovely apple pie served with vanilla custard! Sugar & Spice will be launched in the next few...
