Is YSL Tatouage Couture The Best Liquid Lipstick?

YSL Tatouage Couture Review

When it comes to YSL and lipstick we are good friends, in fact best friends. I absolutely adore YSL lipsticks. Rouge Pur Couture in No.1 is the perfect red lipstick and it’s a pretty lovely addition in my make-up bag with its stunning gold shiny case. So with that said it doesn’t surprise me that when it comes to liquid lipsticks, YSL have absolutely nailed it.

I’m a big fan of liquid lipsticks, well most of them. I think the formulas are getting better and better from each brand. Some favourites for me include Kylie Cosmetics (the velvets), Smashbox and Guerlain’s most recent launch. I was intrigued to try YSL’s new offering, the Tatouage Couture collection. The range has 18 matte liquid lipsticks with a high pigment pay-off and are described as to leave the ultimate lasting mark. The colours range from pink and red to purple and coral and they still have the shiny gold YSL packaging. Read More »

Best Hot Spots For Bumping Into Your Future Badoo Date

Badoo

London has a population of over 8.7 million people, which to get your head round it is over ninety Wembley Stadiums full. Too much math? Let’s get to something simpler, dating. Oh wait.

For some reason dating in London could possibly be one of the hardest cities to meet someone, that was until now. With 60 million monthly active users, Badoo is the largest dating app in the world and one of the cool features of the app is that it enables you to ‘bump into’ someone. Do you ever get the same train every morning and quite fancy that guy in the carriage, yet you’d never pluck up the courage to talk to him? Do you sit in Starbucks all day pondering the meaning of life? Or maybe you walk the same way to the gym each day. Well now you can use those opportunities to find someone who does just that. The app shows you where and when you passed by a person in close proximity to you, as well as find someone who has similar interests and maybe even friends in common.

Turn Back The Clock With These Overnight Treatments

Overnight Treatments Skincare UK Beauty Blogger

Now that we are well and truly into Autumn and with the clocks going back next week, it’s not surprising if you are starting to feel a little lethargic and tired. It’s darker at nights, in fact I am actually dreading when it gets to 3pm and it’s pitch black. So nights snuggled inside with the heating on and candles a blazing are what I’m excited for.

With more nights in, it leaves me with more time to pamper and one way I like to give my skin and face a boost is with an overnight treatment. These are a great way to look like you’ve had plenty sleep when in reality maybe you haven’t. I also love to use these kind of treatments when I’m flying as they lock in moisture and are great for long-haul flights. Overnight treatments are a crucial step in my anti-ageing routine and here are some of my favourites I’ve been enjoying using. Read More »
