Lily Lolo Rose Glow Shimmer Strips Review

I think this has to be one of my favourite products of all time. I have various highlighting powders in my collection, ranging from opals tones, to gold, to violet, but I have yet to get my hands on a rose. Even though rose is one of my favourite colours, especially when it comes to makeup (note Sleek’s Rose Gold blush). So when I got the chance to try out Lily Lolo Rose Glow Shimmer Strips* I was rather jolly!

This product creates a perfect pink sheen across one’s skin, whether it is applied to the cheekbones, collarbones or d├ęcolletage. The rose glow strips could also be used as a wash of colour of the eyelid. The product itself is highly pigmented, easy to blend, and has good longevity.  

I apply Rose Glow to my cheekbones to create an elegant evening look. I find this the best wear to wear it as they are quite shimmery so it is best suited for nights out. All in all it is a stunning product which I for one will use a lot of. I definitely recommend it if you have a busy winter calendar coming up, as this would be the perfect product for you if you like to add a little bit of glow to your complexion.

Italy 2013

First of all, sorry for the bombardment of pictures, my apologies! I was going through my Italy album and thought I would upload some onto my blog. So here they are! I went to Italy for a wedding, first of all we stopped at Pisa, then went on to Siena, and then finally to Florence. Italy as a country is breathtakingly beautiful. For the wedding we stopped in an old country villa/mansion. It was incredible to say the least. The weather was very mixed, but we did get some hot days, hoorah. I honestly didn't want it to end. We've already made plans to go back again next year, I literally cannot wait!

REN Rosa Centifolia No. 1 Purity Cleansing Balm Review

Over the past couple of months I have really been getting stuck into cleansing balms as they 
work well with my parched skin. I have been recently loving the Balance Me Cleansing Balm, however REN have a new product on the market... No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm*.

The balm is infused with rose and is silky in texture. I take a small amount, melt it between my fingers, then apply it all of my face. During this time I wait a couple of minutes for it to work it's little magic. I splash my face with warm water which transforms the balm into a milky liquid. I then run the muslin cloth under warm water and begin to remove the balm in circular motions. My face is left soft and soothed, and more importantly clean.

The balm itself is rather thick, so one needs to squeeze the bottle pretty hard for the product to come out. The cleansing balm also comes in a jar, which makes life much more easier! The muslin cloth is slightly on the small side so I tend to use my larger/thicker ones which are more abrasive to buff my dry skin.

I really like the fact that the balm is full of natural ingredients and has a delicious scent. It leaves my skin calm and clear. Although I still have to use an intensive moisturiser, as I find that my skin is still prone to
drying out.

missing in action?

It's been a while since I last blogged and there is a good reason for that! About 2 months ago my life changed pretty drastically! Ahh where to begin? WELL... I met someone very very special. We've moved into a lovely little home with our Collie dog, Grace. It's all happened so quickly, but I couldn't be any happier, over the moon infact! A couple of weeks ago we went to Italy for a wedding and in all honesty I had the best time of my life, it was absolutely incredible and breathtaking.

Because my life has been so busy, my Blog and YouTube got a little bit neglected! However, the internet has been ordered and is on it's way, hoorah! So I shall be back very very soon.
