I received this lovely Clarins All About Lips gift from (my beauty blog partner in crime) Rachelle for my birthday, and how ashamed am I that I’ve only gotten around to posting about it now. It’s an absolute gem of a gift, guaranteed to please even the fussiest misses.
Essence are a brand that holds a special place in our hearts here at Dolly Rouge HQ; they have a huge range of cheap as chips yet stellar quality products that are perfect for a payday pick me up without breaking the bank. Today I bring you some of their new release products for Autumn/Winter and as usual Essence have not failed to deliver! Let me know in the comments if you have picked anything up!
I picked up a quartet of the new Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains on the day of their release (that dedicated am I), in the only available shades at the time 001 Honey, 015 Cherish, 020 Lovesick and 040 Rendezvous. I believe some other shades have been launched since, and you’d better believe I’ll be going back for them. TL;DR I am LOV. ING. THESE. I don’t think I’ve been using any other lip products for the past month (aside from Lush’s awesome new lip colour), and for a fickle beauty blogger that says a lot. For the details and a GIVEAWAY keep reading. Read on »
Chuaigh mé go dtí scoil lán ghaelach nuair a bhí mé beag ach anois níl ach cúpla focal fós agam. Mar sine de tá mé chun léimthe ar an Bród bandwagon agus iarracht a dhéanamh píosa beag as Gaeilge a scríobh. Go n-éirí an tádh liom eh?!
Cuir do lámha le chéile ar feadh na Lip Balm álainn seo ó Gosh; tá siad iontach maith agus bíonn an dath Barbie in mó mhala an t-am ar fad! Read on »
La Roche-Posay Nutritic Lips is my saviour. I’ve been suffering from really chapped, dry, flaky lips for the past few days, with no idea what caused it. I’m not dehydrated, I’ve actually been drinking more water than usual, and I can’t see how the wonderfully balmy weather we’ve had could be the culprit. Anyhow, my lips have been cracking, peeling and bleeding. I tried every lip balm in my possession – Nuxe Reve de Miel, Carmex, Liz Earle Superbalm, Vaseline – they all eased the discomfort briefly, but the flakies returned.
Then I remembered this beauty. Read on »
So you all must know of my unabashed grá for La Roche-Posay Cicaplast, I’ve gone on about it enough. You can imagine my absolute delight to be invited to the launch of the latest and greatest addition to the La Roche-Posay family, Cicaplast Baume B5. It’s billed as “an all in one product which soothes and repairs all irritated or altered skin with an ultra comfortable, nourishing balm formula”. La Roche-Posay are marketing it to everyone, for everything! Or at least any non-bleeding skin problem you can imagine: nappy rash, eczema, dry patches, chapped lips, sunburn, cracked nipples… You name it, as long as it’s a non-oozing wound, Cicaplast Baume B5 apparently treats it.
I might be in the minority here, but I love sheer lippies. What’s the point you might think, sure wouldn’t you be better off with a gloss? Well sheer lippies deliver the wash of colour of a gloss, without my hair getting stuck to my face. So far I’ve been loving 17 Mirror Shine and lusting after Dior Addict and Chanel Rouge Coco ranges.
Incoming in April is what sounds like my absolute dream lippie range – buttery, balmy hydration, great pigmentation, a huge shade range and a budget price – Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters.
I’m very particular about my lip care, as my lips are damn fussy. Every winter, the damn things crack and split at every opportunity, unless massaged hourly with expensive butters and oils. Vaseline? They crack in protest at the mere thought. High maintenance? Moi?
I had just run out of my holy grail Lavera Basis Sensitiv Lip Balm and after taking a chance on Dr. Organic Manuka Honey Lip Balm (don’t, it’s useless) my lips were crying out for some TLC. After much moaning and hint dropping, lucky me received a glorious pot of buttery goodness for my birthday. Enter Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm.
