Perfume Of The Day – L’Occitane Cerisier Rouge

Perfume Of The Day – L’Occitane Cerisier Rouge

I got this L’Occitane Cerisier Rouge Eau Intense for Christmas and I’m so in love with it! I first spritzed it in their York shop in December, and then dropped enough hints to my husband that he bought me it. Cerisier Rouge translates as ‘Red Cherry’ and it’s a beautiful sweet fragrance – as well as the scent of cherry it’s got hints of lemon, orange, blackcurrant, raspberry and Lily Of The Valley. It’s not too fruity though, the floral edge really does come through, and it is supposed to replicate the ‘changing beauty of cherry blossom announcing the arrival of Summer days’. It’s my absolute favourite scent at the moment, I wear it every day. It’s so uplifting and fresh – probably more of a Spring/Summer scent than an Autumn/Winter one. It lasts all day, after a few hours the top notes start to disappear and it reduces down to a warming, fruity fragrance. I was also lucky enough to receive a great free gift with my perfume.

MUA – Intense Glitter Eye Liner in Blue Babe

MUA – Intense Glitter Eye Liner in Blue Babe

I love a nice coloured eye liner pencil, particularly a glittery one, and I thought that this Intense Glitter Eye Liner in Blue Babe from MUA might be perfect for Christmas. I’m a recent convert to MUA make-up (MUA stands for Make Up Academy, and it’s Superdrug’s own budget make-up brand). I’ve already reviewed a few products from MUA and found that they usually give great results despite their very reasonable prices. The first thing that I noticed about this Intense Glitter pencil is that the lid doubles up as a pencil sharpener which I think is a great idea! It doesn’t matter how organised I am I can never find the right sized sharpener for my make-up pencils, and this means that you always have a sharpener with you wherever you take the pencil, so there’s never an excuse for a blunt eye pencil! Blue Babe is a soft pale blue colour with tiny flecks of silver glitter in. I really love the colour but unfortunately the texture...

Clarins – Crayon Khol in Intense Blue & Platinum

Clarins – Crayon Khol in Intense Blue & Platinum

Another Clarins make-up review, this time it is the new Crayon Khol pencils in Intense Blue and Platinum*. Both are very subtle colours, I do find that Clarins make-up tends to err on the cautious side with nothing too bright or ‘in your face’. Both Crayon Khol pencils come in cardboard packaging in the classic Clarins red colour. Each pencil has a lid at each end, one end has the pencil nib the other end has a useful brush that can be used for blending and smudging the pencil colour to create different effects on the eyelid. Both Intense Blue and Platinum are quite dark colours, and give lovely dense long-lasting coverage. Intense Blue is almost a navy blue, but is a slightly softer colour than a black pencil.I have been wearing Crayon Khol in Intense Blue on my lower lash line, you can see from the image below that it is a dark colour. It would also look good inside the lower lashline, or on the upper lashline...
