Givenchy · Le Rose Perfecto & Live Irresistible Rosy Crush

Living in a climate with such extremes (ridiculously hot & humid in Summer, bone-cold in Winter), my lips are always in need of hydration and there are usually anywhere from 2-4 lip balms in my makeup bag at any given time. There are times when I also want a spot of colour thrown in along with the hydration factor, and to that end Givenchy’s Le Rose Perfecto not only meets that need, but does it with some of the most bougie packaging out there. For 2019, the brand has just added to the range with several new shades … all utterly wearable and incredibly comfortable to boot.

Dior · Lip Glow To The Max & New Lip Maximizer Collection

For Spring 2019, Dior is adding to both the Lip Glow and Lip Maximizer ranges with new shades, textures, and even formulation tweaks — then takes everything a few notches further by making these new additions just so much fun and pretty to look at too.

Fresh Beauty · Holiday 2018 Gift Sets

To be perfectly clear, I’m actually not a fan of gift sets; for one, I’m a control freak and prefer curating my own ‘sets’ and secondly, I’ve always found that apart from one or two items, the rest of the pieces in a gift set are usually just ‘fillers‘. That said, these Fresh Gift Sets are making me rethink my stance. Why, you might ask? Well, because each and every single one is filled with a really fab selection. Oh, and how stinking cute is this year’s Holiday 2018 packaging? There’s even a gift tag included!

Sisley Paris · Phyto Twist Makeup & Hair Rituel

 

With its storied history to go with exclusive plant-derived formulations, I’ve passed by the luxury beauty counter of Sisley Paris for many years now, and with one exception (a skincare launch I was invited to some time ago), their products have remained somewhat of a mystery to me; then I received a package of goodies to test and after diving in, my main thought was: why have I waited so long to try anything from this brand?
