Luxury Gift Idea: Touché by Flavien Intensive Nourishing Treatment!


Hey Beauty Lovers! This luxury gift idea is a little hair treat. Flavien's hair products are filled with goodness and that is what makes them quite special. The ingredients that go into his haircare are very expensive because they are hard to extract, prickly pear oil is one of them. It's a very powerful ingredient that is even more affective than argan oil, which intensely hydrates and nourishes tiered hair and makes it look healthy and shiny. Goji berry extract has anti-aging antioxidant properties, whilst rosemary oil help to stimulate hair growth. 

This hair treatment comes in two sizes: 300ml £68 and 50ml £17 - available at Harvey Nichols, Fenwick, and Harrods. Flavien recommends to apply a generous amount and massage from roots into the ends leaving in overnight for a deep treatment and rinse out in the morning.

Festive Beauty Look: NARS Guy Bourdin Collection!

 Blush: Coeur Battant; Eyeshadow: Cambodia; Lipstick: Full Frontal; Nailpolish: No Limits
All from NARS Guy Bourdin Collection

 NARS No Limits without topcoat

NARS No Limits with topcoat

Hey Beauty Lovers! Guy Bourdin is an iconic fashion photographer and he collaborated with NARS to create this a-mazing Holiday 2013 Colour Collection in time for Christmas! The pop of colours are pretty exciting and so I thought it would be fun to create a daring beauty look inspired by Guy Bourdin photography.

So to create this look I have chosen the Cinematic Eyeshadow in Cambodia, which is a pink copper. It's a new formula created exclusively for the NARS Guy Bourdin Collection, a velvet texture with high-impact colour. As a blush I went for the Coeur Battant shade, which is a dramatic magenta, you only need a light touch of it as it is highly pigmented. For a lip I kept the same tone and applied the Cinematic Lipstick in Full Frontal, which is a rose violet. The Cinematic Lipstick is also a new formula, making the lipstick super glossy with intense colour saturation. And on nails I'm wearing the No Limits nailpolish, which is a bright pink violet that dries to a satin matte finish.

Gift Idea: L'Occitane Fleur d'Or & Acacia Collection!

Hey Beauty Lovers! L'Occitane has many great gift sets for Christmas this year. My personal pick is the Fleur d'Or Acacia gift set, it has such a lovely floral scent, very feminine and gentle and just simply beautiful. Where I grew up there were lots of acacia trees and this scent just brings me back to my childhood, so I'm pretty addicted to the fragrance right now! It doesn't last very long on me but it's one of those beautiful fresh scents that you top up throughout the day. 

In a beautiful gift-box you get the 75ml eau de toilette, shower gel [with festive gold glitter] and body milk both 175ml, all for £65. Or otherwise you can get the items separately, the eau de toilette alone is £49, body milk £16, and shower gel £11, so you save a bit of money by getting the gift box really. And also a great stocking filler is the 30ml hand cream which is just £8.

Stocking Filler: realTechniques Miracle Complexion Sponge!

Hey Beauty Lovers! This is what I call the perfect stocking filler: cute, tiny and very-much needed! realTechniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is great for applying and blending foundation and concealer. The shape is designed to make it easy to get everywhere where it's usually tricky to get, places such as the under eye area and around the nose. Depending on how you turn the sponge you either get a round edge, a flat edge or a pointy edge. Miracle Complexion Sponge is a great foundation blending tool, which helps to create a flawless skin finish.

Gift Idea: Caudalie Moisture Cocoon Set!

Available at for £23

Hey Beauty Lovers! This gift set would be great for a mother or an auntie or anyone really who is suffering from dehydrated skin, but perhaps a more mature person as the packaging is quite elegant and classic. A comforting skincare set that is designed to help instantly calm and hydrate skin, which is either normally dehydrated or is aggravated by the winter's cold. It would be suitable for all skin-types as the facial moisturiser has a lightweight gel texture. You get three lovely Caudalie products in this box: Moisturising Sorbet 40ml, which is a gel-cream; Hand and Nail Cream 50ml, which is anti-oxidant rich and has a festive orange scent; and finally a Lip Conditioner.

Astalift Jelly Aquarysta Review!

Hey Beauty Lovers! In the past year there has been a tendency towards the new texture in skincare. Gels are the new creams, they work it's way deep into the skin tissue. Unlike cream textures gels penetrate the skin immediately without sitting on top of the skin and don't leave a greasy film on the surface of the skin, which means all the beneficial ingredients get to do the job from within. 

Astalift Jelly Aquarysta can be used in place of a serum, so before your moisturiser twice a day. The Jelly jar comes with a small spatula, which is pretty convenient! After applying a thin layer of the Jelly my skin drinks it up instantly. The moisture is locked in for the rest of the day. It contains Astaxanthin combined with various types of collagen, which helps to protect against free radicals. This Jelly injects skin with hydration making it firm and radiant looking.

MAC Cremesheen Glass in Prepare For Pleasure!

Hey Beauty Lovers! MAC Cremesheen Glass in Prepare For  Pleasure is from the Divine Nights, Holiday 2013 Collection. If you haven't yet read my blogpost featuring this collection click here! On my eyes and face I'm wearing the same makeup as in that blogpost only changing the nude lip to this luscious red. What I don't like in lipglosses is when they are very sticky, it's just something that drives me up the wall. But MAC Cremesheen I find very pleasant to wear. In fact since I tried it on first time I couldn't resist wearing it for a few days on rotation, absolutely loving it! Such a gorgeous perfect red, very pigmented almost looks like a super shiny lipstick. I love the name, the colour, and the everything about it... Highly addictive!

Nailart: Glitter Polkadots on Nude Nails with Essie!

 Essie Eternal Optimist 

 Essie Beyond Cozy

Hey Beauty Lovers! I have really enjoyed wearing this nail-look and had lots of compliments, so I decided to share it. This look is pretty cute and super simple to create. You will need either a dotting tool or a thin artists brush, which is what I used. I already had two coats of Essie Eternal Optimist on, and on top in a random manor I dotted on the Essie Beyond Cozy. Going over the dots once more to make sure the glitters come out more.
