Another day, another V-day look.
I’m head over heels for this oh-so pretty purple eye-shadow from Clarins. The shade, Vibrant Violet, is just that. A rich, jewel, bluish purple. It’s a great choice if you’re going for cocktails this Saturday, with a guy or with the girls.
The pigment is deep and the formula smooth. If you like smokey eyes then swap your backs, greys and browns for this pop of colour. It’s a great way to brighten up dull February days, as well as a winter pallor.
We’ve got a couple of lip balm and lipstick reviews coming in the run up to Valentine’s Day, so you can get your kisser in top condition.
I’m generally not a fan of lip balms. When I find one I like I love it to bits and use every last drop, but for each one I use up I have 10 hardly touched sticks and tubs which have left me unimpressed.
My favourite right now is Darphin Age-Defying Lip Balm. The solid yellow balm immediately turns soft and silky when I dip my finger in the pot; it glides onto lips.
My lips are immediately comforted and feel so soft and plump. My dry pucker was cracking and just plain nasty but, with slathering this on at every opportunity, they are now transformed.
I love the fact that it has a slightly glossy finish to it too. My lips have a pretty sheen which means I don’t need to apply a gloss or any lippy to finish off my look.
Just fab. It’s my latest beauty addiction.
I adore the John Galliano fragrance; it is my go-to scent when I need to up my mood or feel a bit special. So imagine my elation at this delightful solid perfume charm bracelet version. It is pretty AND it smells like heaven – perfection!
This would make a great Valentine’s Day present; starting hinting now.
