What’s in a lipstick Shade/Tone?

Hello everyone,

A bit of a rant today which I rarely do, but I feel I really need to in this case, as it was a high end product and a bit of a considered purchase for me. When I or anyone else buy a lipstick, we are all looking for that specific shade that catches our eye and we want it because .. it is the one for me!

The world is full of lipsticks and lipstick shades and we have our choice of hundreds or thousands. So when I saw the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in Kidman’s Kiss, I thought it was stunning; the most beautiful pink toned lipstick I had seen in a long time and I had to have it.

What I got this morning looks nothing like the picture at all; not even remotely like the shade on the model and that makes me cross as I was so looking forward to this lipstick.

Charlotte Tilbury is considered to be one of the world’s best makeup artists and if anyone can nail a shade I would like it think she could do that! But sadly not in this instance, the colour is completely off and to be honest the formula goes on a bit patchy too. I put some primer on my hands to get my picture too. Below are the images from the website and the shade I of course selected in Kidman’s Kiss and a couple of pictures from home. One is a swatch of said lipstick.

I am gutted this was not the colour represented online and that the shade is so completely different to the one in the photos. It cost £24.00 and is completely different to what I thought I was ordering. I do not know how companies can do this to people. You buy in good faith, only to be so let down when the product arrives. Well I guess that is all I have to say about that really ..

Just to add I did however get some really good customer service on this from the CT website and I really appreciate that.

Bye for now folks..

 

By for now folks,

yours very disappointed ….

Win a Fabulous Set of Bio-Extracts Super Booster Serums!

Hello Beauties,

Bio-Extracts, if you have not heard of these potent vegan boosters and the goodness of plant power, then this is a fabulous opportunity to win a set to try!

They are super light easily absorbed formulas and they can be slotted into any routine. They put you in charge of your skincare and what your skin needs on a daily basis.

These boosters are a lot different to a regular serum, they are many times more powerful than just a serum. They use phospholipids which gives them a unique delivery system to make sure they don’t sit on the skin’s surface. They sink straight in and work on preparing and healing your skin from the inside out .. in other words the longer you use them your skin will just get better and better!

The Prize consists of –

Firming Boost: I use on my number 11’s and from the cheekbones down over my neck, as that is where I need firming most .. below cheeks, under chin, neck and around my mouth. I can feel this working and have done from my very first use.

Anti-Oxidant Boost: This works on stressed skin, should it be the stresses of weather, life or environmental toxin in the air that can really affect the skin. This strengthens and protects the skins natural barrier.

Glow Boost: .. to beat the winter dullness of our skins! This intensive illuminating serum I use as an overnight treatment, under my regular serums and creams. It works to bring oxygen to the skin, it really brightens your skin and it really works to revitalise and refresh skin, putting your glow back.

The set comes with some skincare samples and a lovely soft vegan-leather bag. I use these serums every day and they have pretty much an overnight effect on the skin and really get it looking so nourished .

NIOD Today’s Special Value Order of Use

Hello everyone, I have noticed that some of you are struggling with your NIOD TSV’s order of use, so here is a quick guide as to how and when you use it!

Do not feel bad about this, it is something that will be completely new to you, so it is a bit of a learning curve, but it is very worthwhile.

Until you get to know what everything is, I suggest putting a number on the bottle, until you are used to the names and the order of use.

1.Sanskrit Saponins:(SS) this you use on cleansed, clean skin. It is a skin cleanser and skin will feel so good after and all your skincare will work much better. You use this product every other day, morning or evening, whatever suits you best.

2.Copper Amino Isolate Serum: (CAIS) this is a very thin serum that gives fabulous results. I find it best to be seated, with the bottle in front of you, so you do not knock it over. Only 3 drops are needed (don’t waste it) onto the palm of your hand. Quickly smush hands together and take one hand over the top of your forehead and the other on your chin area and pat, then change hand position to over both cheeks and pat, then just pat hands gently over the rest of your face and job done! You know you have gotten this superlight serum exactly where it needs to be. Use morning & evening.

3.Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex : (MMHC) This serum keeps skin super hydrated, plumped up and juicy. 3 drops applied in the same way as copper above, but you will feel where this is going on as it is a bit thicker. Use morning & evening.

Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate: (FECC): Just one drop applied to under eye, orbital bone area and upper eyelid is all you need of this product for puffiness, dark circles, inflammation and elasticity. Use morning & evening.

So that is it! Easy when you know how.

It took me a while to learn it all too, but it is worthwhile using a guide until you are a bit more confident with the products really.

I know some ladies are seeing great results already. I hope you stick with the routine and start to get some great results too.

Bye for now
