Loving right now: By Terry Baume De Rose lipgloss, Whittard of Chelsea teas, Zoeva brushes, Yes Nurse hand cream

  A few things I've been loving recently, starting off with the By Terry Baume De Rose in lip gloss form. I love the original Baume De Rose in the pot but it's really nice to have it in a user friendly wand applicator with colour. If you've been put off by the pot, this is a great way of trying out this cult product. I do find these different in texture to the original though but I don't mind it. Something else that is really impressive is the Yes Nurse intensive moisturising hand cream.

It is solely being used for the bottom lashes due to its small brush ( as its a mini size, the brush is tiny ) and it quite nicely defines my bottom lashes. On my top lashes I like it as big as it can get it, and this despite the claims doesn't build any volume. For me at least. Next is the Lilybeth brow shaper. I don't use this on my brows, I can't seem to grasp…

Lipstick Diaries: Bite Beauty, Kat Von D, Edward Bess, Lime Crime, Nudestix, Kevin Aucoin, Sephora

Lip products are my kryptonite, it's the one product that really gets me excited about makeup more than anything else. Here are a few products worth me ranting about. Edward Bess Lasting Kiss enhancing lip stain in Au Naturel  A lovely long wearing liquid lipstick by Edward Bess in a bright pink colour. The name is a bit misleading, there's nothing natural about this shade, in fact its a very bright pink. The formula is amazing, opaque in one swipe and very long lasting. Not quite a stain but more of the liquid paint type formula. Kat Von D lipstick in Lovecraft  Another much loved shade, this lipstick is almost always out of stock everywhere. A semi matte finish and warm rosy colour makes it very appealing to almost everyone. Can't go wrong with…
