Have you tried this cult lip balm?

Have you tried this cult lip balm?

So before I launch into my review of this lip balm I just wanted to give readers a quick update on why my blog has been so quiet for the past couple of weeks. Don’t worry, I haven’t gone anywhere! Since having my baby daughter last September spare time has been quite limited for me so I’ve had to carefully balance my time and squeeze in the taking of blog photos and writing of blog posts between nappy changes, feeds and cuddles. Then a couple of weeks ago I volunteered to help out a local charity with the revamp of their website – it needed a bit more work than I had originally anticipated so most of my free time over the past week or so has been taken up with that. Anyway, I’ve got a bit of a backlog of beauty products to review and I’m trying to fit in blogging where I can, but I’ll be back up to full speed very soon, you’ll just have to bear...

“Hi, my name’s Laura and I’m a beauty blogger”… *hands out a business card* This has been me ever since I received these amazing business cards* from Aura Print last week!

As well as business cards they offer a huge range of flyers, stickers, PVC banners and other printed media.

Paul & Joe Beaute – Cheek Color & Compact Case

Paul & Joe Beaute – Cheek Color & Compact Case

I do love make-up that looks beautiful in its packaging, and there is no brand more pretty that Paul & Joe Beaute. Their limited edition feline and floral packaging is second to none with many pieces being so beautiful that you just want to admire them and almost don’t want to use them. A couple of weeks ago I treated myself to Cheek Color 10 (Ombrage) and the Spring 2014 Collection Kitten Print Compact Case (number 002). Shade 10 was the most natural of the Cheek Colors that I could find, it is a pressed powder blusher that consists of a large rose-pink section and a thinner tan colour strip. I love the fact that the pressed powder has the Paul & Joe ‘PJ’ logo imprinted into it, I think it makes it looks really classy. You can see the Cheek Color shades really clearly from the close-up image above. The tan strip of colour has a feint shimmer to it, you can see the glittery particles shining. The...
