Oriflame Triple Core 3D lippie

I love a funky looking lippie and I’ve certainly found a super funkilicious lippie in Oriflame’s new  Triple Core 3D lippie.

Available from June 8th, the design of this lippie is meant to help create the illusion of fuller lips. 


The lippie has three layers within it to achieve the appearance of volumised lips.

The outer core features a dark, vibrant tone to define and maximise the shape and size of your lips.

The middle core consists of a silver highlighting shade to increase volume with a delicate shimmer and gloss finish.

Shade: Nude Peach

The inner core then focuses on the centre of lips, making them appear fuller using a contrasting shade. 

While I loved the idea in theory, and indeed the lippie looked great, I found it fell short a little in practice.

Shade: Nude Peach -Swatched

I found I ended up having to blend the lipstick when it was on my lips to hide the distinct layers which were apparent when applied, to makea more subtle look.

That said, the formula itself was really nice with a rich pigment and moisturising properties which left my lips soft.

Shade: Nude Peach- Blended

An interesting product which I don’t feel worked all that well for me, but to use as a regular lippie was rather nice.

The lipstick is available in Nude Peach (like mine), Coral Pink, Red Coral, Fuchsia Candy and Berry Pink available from Oriflame's website priced at £10.95.

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Range!

The medicinal and healing properties of honey have earned it a reputation as one the purest and most natural remedies for over 5,000 years. 

Thanks to its long list of amazing qualities, honey is used to treat a wide range of ailments and complaints as well as being used as an ingredient in many beauty products.

The Body Shop's new collection pays homage to the wonder that is honey with its gorgeous Lip Balm, Bronzer and Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil.

Their Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder (£13) is a gorgeous honey-enriched pressed powder, available in 4 shades, which gives skin an even, bronze matte finish.

Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder, Shade 4

Encased in a pretty brown compact, the powder is pressed to feature the recognisable shape of honeycomb!

  The texture is silky and the powder glides onto the skin, allowing you to blend away and create a stunning, naturally bronzed look without looking orange. 

The Honey Bronze Shimmer Lip Balm (£6) is far prettier than I thought it would be and it smells DIVINE. 

The sweetly-scented balm repairs and moisturises lips whilst giving them a luscious, golden shimmer which is really subtle and not at all glittery!

The honey bee hive pot that the balm sits in is also really cute!

Finally is their Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil (£16) which is perfect for dry skin that is begging for a pick-me-up.

The shimmer within the lightweight oil helps to bring the skin alive and helps your tan look deeper and more bronzed.

The smell is sweet and delicate and the non greasy oil left my skin feeling soft and super moisturised.

I found this worked particularly well when applied to the front of my legs and shins as it gave them a gorgeous shimmer, making them look healthy and gorgeous!

The Honey Bronze collection are available from The Body Shop now!

Pooch Pack!

Ok, so I’m well aware that this Isn’t a beauty related post, but it’s such a fab idea I had to share!

For all of you peeps with pooches, Pooch Pack is essentially a monthly subscription box full of goodies for dogs.

From £16.95, every month your woofy will receive a box containing 5 or 6 surprise goodies
It works the same way as a beauty box subscription with the following steps;

First, choose your subscription from their 3 available options. You can subscribe month to month, every 3 or every 6 months and you can cancel at any time.

Next, tell them more about your special four legged friend, as they cater each box for your dog's size.

Finally, make your payment, sit back and wait for the box to be delivered. The value of each box will be more than you've paid and boxes are sent out around the 15th of every month.

Now, my pup (well he’s not a pup anymore he’s 5) is super pampered and I really liked the idea of this!

The only down side, it is quite expensive, but then as any pet owners will know, looking after and treating your dogs is an expensive business anyway.

You can order your own Pooch Pack from their website now.
