Sisley's latest makeup launch is their Phyto 4 Ombres  - two lovely eyeshadow palettes with a bold, bright harlequin design to the cases. Each palette has four shades in it - there's two very different palettes, the nude toned Dream palette, and the bolder Mystery palette.

YSL Volupte Tint-in-Oil Lip Oil

So, just after one lip oil, along comes another! This time, from YSL, and it's a bit different from the Clarins one we blogged about yesterday. YSL's Volupte Tint-in-Oil captures colour in oil - no mean feat, apparently. Oil is a tricky element to capture, and oil and tint naturally repel each other but YSL Beaute has developed an ultra-stabilizing technology called Colour Link Infuser which compels the ingredients to work as one, and the tint … [Read more...]

The Body Shop Bouncy Sleep Mask

I love the name of the new Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleep Mask.It  promises bouncier skin, which is a new one one me - I think they mean firmer skin, obviously, but I like bouncier! Enriched with Edelweiss stem cells, it's designed to be left on overnight to do its magic. The bouncy also refers to the texture. It's a sort of cream-gel texture, and not what I normally love in a facial product. Having dry skin I find richer products suit me … [Read more...]
