L’Oreal Color Riche Collection Pure Reds
The new L’Oreal Pure Reds Collection features 4 matte Reds that are all beautiful in texture and incredibly wearable. They are all personalised for 4 personalities including Blake Lively, Eva Longoria, Julianne Moore, and model Liya Kebede. The custom shades range from true reds to more pinky red undertones and I think my favourite would have to be Julianne’s red as its a nice bright pinky red similar to the colour of geranium flowers. They all feel very smoothing on the lips and lasted well.
Have you tried these lipsticks?

BOURJOIS MAGIC NAIL VARNISH REMOVER HANDS AND FEET
For anyone who hasn’t tried the original Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover…where have you been? And to those of you familiar with this cult beauty classic you’ll be pleased to know they have now made one for hands and toes. I’m relieved to say the Hands and Toes Version does not involve sticking your toes into the pot (as I had at first worried how this would work), much to my relief the clever design now comes with an extra sponge in the lid of the pot so you can easily remove polish from your toes in one quick sweep! I’ve meaning to get my hands on this for ages and i’m definitely feeling a pamper session coming soon!

BOBBI BROWN SKIN FOUNDATION - REAL SKIN WITH A LITTLE EXTRA
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation promises ‘invisible, weightless coverage’ so does it deliver? Well yes! As per usual i’m a little late trying this one. And I would say you get a little extra also! It feels light, it sits on the right side of dewy and it does look like skin, but better. More specifically it seems to layer quite well so you can build the coverage where you need it but it won’t ever look like heavy makeup on your face. The shade range is pretty good and you get an SPF of 15 which is plenty for not so sunny London!

THE OLSEN TWINS - GIRL CRUSH ALERT
Known for their amazing sense of style, it comes as no big shock that they also inspire when it comes to makeup looks as both Ashley and Mary Kate always seem to have the whole effortless chic thing down to a Tee! I love that despite being twins they both have such an individual sense of style what with Ashley (on the right) doing the golden goddess look perfectly and Mary Kate (left) has the more grunge slept in liner with a 90’s style red lip. They started their own fashion line THE ROW back in 2006 which ‘reflects on a sense of relaxed and timeless elegance’ which is pretty much how I would describe their makeup looks too! They strike me as the kind of gals who dress for themselves and love experimenting.
