Affordable Clarins Lip Perfector Dupe | Topshop Lip Perfector

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector Dupe, Affordable Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector Dupe, Topshop Lip perfector, Topshop lip perfector in flattery, Topshop makeup, Scottish blogger, Beauty blogger

I have a couple shades of the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors. Both are pretty and sheer, with a moisturising formula that just gives a tiny hint of pastel colour. I have the shades 01 Rose Shimmer and 02 Apricot Shimmer. Which, can I point out, are not shimmery... At all.

As pretty and comfortable as Clarins Lip Perfectors are on the lips, each one will cost you £18. Eek. For very little colour pay off, it can be quite difficult to justify. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw the Topshop Lip Perfectors for £6 (Yes. £6)

The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig, The Body Shop, affordable fig fragrances, fig fragrance, The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig review

Italian Summer Fig from The Body Shop is a great affordable fig fragrance that is the newest editon to their Voyage Collection.

Whilst most fig fragrances tend to come from higher end brands and cost a small fortune for you to buy, all products in The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig range come in at under £20, making them very affordable for most people.

Styling Products For A "Lob"

styling products for a lob, how to style a lob, styling products for a long bob, L'oreal Tecni Art, Charles Worthington texturising spray, Dove root lift spray, Dove oxygen and moisture

Can I just start out by saying how much I hate the word "lob"?! Yuck. Anyway.
This style of cut has been very popular this year, so today I thought I would run through my favourite products I use to achieve a messy, beachy, wavey look. You know the look I am talking about.

Topshop Makeup Haul

Topshop, Topshop makeup, Topshop makeup haul

Topshop makeup is one of my all time favourite makeup brands. Everything I have tried from them has been amazing quality, an amazing price and I've loved everything I have tried. I can confidentially say, I have never used a Topshop makeup item that has disappointed me. Everything I have tried, I've loved. Not even just liked, no no. Loved.

So when I saw they had added some new bits to the range, I decided to place a little order.

La Roche Posay Serozinc Review

La Roche Posay Serozinc is finally available in the UK. In fact, it is as easy as popping into your local Boots and picking up a can straight from the shelf. Who would have thought we'd finally see this day?

I wrote a post about Serozinc months ago, and since it's arrival in the UK this year, I thought I would rewrite it.

The Best Primers for Oily Skin

primers for oily skin, the best primers for oily skin, Benefit POREfessional review, The Body Shop InstaBlur review, Topshop Airbrush primer review,

As an oily skinned gal, primer is a must. I will never understand the people that write it off as an unnecessary step. Rude. What I look for in a primer is something that is going to help control oil, that gives a matte finish (I always go in with a more dewy foundation because I do like a glow) and keeps my makeup smooth and in place all day. Not much to ask for, right?

Shower Gel For Dry Skin (Sanctuary 12 Hour Shower Creme)

shower gel for dry skin, sulfate free shower gel, in shower moisturiser, Sanctuary 12 hour moisturising shower creme review

I have very dry skin on my body, especially my legs and hips. I blame tight jeans and a general laziness towards moisturising. Oops. So, I've been on the hunt for a shower gel that is so moisturising
that it helps to at least take away some of the dryness, whilst also being SLS free. It really bugs me when shower gels claim to be "ultra moisturising! Loaded with ___ and ___" and then the second ingredient in SLS. Kind of defeats the purpose really.. (SLS is the ingredient that causes foam in products. It is very drying on the skin and strips the natural oils on the skin completely.)

Although, this one is smaller it consists of luxury, high end goodies that made my wallet want to run away screaming when it saw me pick them up. Some of these bits I've had for a few weeks now, so I have had the chance to try them out properly!
