Eau de Lacoste Sensuelle



Eau de Lacoste Sensuelle is the newest fragrance launch from cult brand Lacoste.

Following on from the launch last year of their signature fragrance for women, Eau de Lacoste,Lacoste, Sensuelle is as you would expect from the name, a far more sensual  and seductive smelling fragrance.




Lacoste Sensuelle was designed to draw out your sensual side, recreating the feeling of the evolution from a sunny day to a cool and refreshing evening.

It makes a lovely evening fragrance, but a summer night time fragrance rather than a winter one in that it is warm and feminine, without being heady, overpowering or too dark and deep.




It is delicate, seductive and musky but it’s also very light, which makes for a really beautifully mix.

It’s one of those fragrances that smells even better the longer it’s worn on your skin.




The fragrance opens with pink pepper, fig and tart blackcurrrent before notes of Turkish rose, sweet pea and Gladiolus Inflexus follow and blend deliciously with patchouli, Nougatine accord and rich, warm amber to create a comforting and unique fragrance.

Even the bottle continues to reflects the idea of the fragrance taking you from day to night, with its simple and chic design and dusky sky colour.




It is the perfect spring and summertime evening fragrance, and I’m now a big fan!

Kiko Life In Rio Exotic Shine Lipstick



I’ve been looking for a gorgeous, dusky pink lippie for AGES, ever since my limited edition M&S lippie ran out this time last year, and It’s taken me until now to find one!

My new favourite lipstick comes in the form of Kiko’s Life In Rio Exotic Shine Lipstick in shade 01.




This stunning, moisturising lippie is a bargainous £8.50 and is the exact shade I’ve been looking for!

It glides on easily, like a gloss but doesn’t slip off your lips and is highly pigmented, making for a brilliant combination.




The product is described as;

Combining the intensity and the ease of application of a lipstick and the shine of a gloss with the comfort of a balm. 

I couldn’t have said it better myself!




The creamy formula and pretty dusky pink hue gives my lips a lovely splash of colour without leaving them with that dry feeling so often associated with lipsticks and I find that it suits my skin tone perfectly.

Kiko’s Life In Rio Exotic Shine Lipstick is available this month for £8.50 and comes in 5 other stunning shades.

Thierry Mugler Angel Eau Sucree



Angel Eau Sucree is the new, scrummy, limited edition fragrance from Thierry Mugler.

This fragrance retains all of the unmistakeably addictive, sweet and edible notes of Angel the original, but with a slightly lighter and fruitier all round smell.




The best way to describe this fragrance would be to imagine a red berry pavlova.

Fresh, ripe red berries, sweet meringue and thick, luscious cream. 

Straight away you can smell fruity, red berries, but rather than being tarte or sharp, they are muted by sweet, caramel and vanilla meringue.



A swirl of creaminess combines the sweet and fruity together perfectly to create a beautiful, well rounded and delicious fragrance.

The fragrance is a stunning, fruity variation of Angel which would be perfect for people who have perhaps shied away from Angel due to its very sweet, chocolately, distinctive scent.

Angel Eau Sucree offers a lighter, less heady fragrance, perfect for spring and is practically edible!

 


The bottle is gorgeous too; The Iconic star has been transformed into a pearlescent baby blue shade, sparkling with gems reminiscent of sugar grains!
 
I’ve got a lot of love for Angel Eau Sucree and really hope it becomes a permanent fragrance in the Angel range. 




I literally have nothing bad to say about it at all!

 Angel Eau Sucree 50ml Non Refillable bottle costs £42 and will be available on May 1st.

L'Occitane Scented Ultra Soft Cream



Dry skin is an often unavoidable side effect of cold winters and warm central heating- my skin is always horrid in the winter months!

Just as well then that last month L’Occitane launched three gorgeous scented body creams designed to get you through the last of the winter blues and re-introduce you to, dare I say it, Spring!




Scented in spring inspired fresh and light fragrances to help brighten the dampest and darkest days, these 3 body creams and just delicious!

VanillaBouquet, Zesty Lime and Tender Rose Heart offer a delicate fragrance within a rich, creamy body cream with 10% shea butter.




They are deliciously thick without being sticky and melt onto your skin leaving it feeling soft, fresh and smelling deliciously spring like!

My favourite is the Vanilla Bouquet, sweet with a slight floral hint to it which leaves my skin smelling yummy!




The three varieties are available now and cost £18 each.
