L'Occitane Shea Butter Mango Flower Hand Cream

L'Occitane is known for their amazing hand creams and i can't believe i have never spoken about them before. I have been a big fan of L'Occitane for a long time now so was super happy when i saw this little gem free in this months Marie Claire Magazine. 

The Classic L'Occitane Hand Cream which is enriched with Shea Butter is now infused with gorgeous Limited Edition scents so i couldn't wait to pick up the Mango Flower scent. I adore mango's and love anything with a mango scent so knew this would be love.

I was most definitely not let down, its true love!! A sweet zingy mango fruit scent which really smells so delicious its nearly good enough to eat.

Of course the product itself is as good as ever, light, non-greasy and incredibly moisturising, it really is keeping my hands super soft during these colder days.

This scrummy scent is Limited Edition, its not just Limited Edition to Marie Claire it is available from L'Occitane Online and in store along with Rose Petal and Date Bouquet scents but you need to be quick.

I now must try the Lip Balm which is available in Mango Flower mmmmmmm

RRP £8

Do you love L'Occitane? Whats your favourite product?


M.A.C Rebel Lipstick ♥

M.A.C Lipsticks are honestly my weakness...if i had all the money in the world i would own every single M.A.C Lipstick out there and would proudly wear a different shade each day, that is incredibly sad i know. 

Unfortunately i don't have all the money in the world but do like to treat myself to a M.A.C Lipstick every so often.

Now to be totally honest i actually popped down to M.A.C at work to pick up M.A.C Diva, me being silly Sophie i ended up with Rebel instead...don't ask me how but i am pretty pleased with the mix up.

I adore Rebel and don't think as far as i know that it is as popular as M.A.C Diva which makes me like it that little bit more, although i still want Diva haha.

You all know that i am loving a dark lip for this season and M.A.C Rebel is certainly on the top of my favourites list. It is a deep pinkish-purple with semi matte finish with soooo much colour pay off. It applies to the lips amazingly and leaves them super soft as it is a satin finish. The colour lasts for hours and wears away really nicely. 

I do have a fair few M.A.C Lipsticks so if you liked this post and would like to see a certain M.A.C Lipstick shade then by all means please leave me a comment with the shade and i would love to post about it.

What do you think of this shade? Do you love M.A.C Lipsticks?


Benefit How To Look The Best At Everything Kit ♥

I did promise that i had a few amazing kits from Benefit to share with you and this How To Look The Best At Everything Kit is the next one i would like to show you. This gorgeous book of base must-haves includes a selection of their classic products to achieve a flawless look.

The Porefessional which is actually one of my favourite Benefit products, i must review it fully for you all one day, it is a Pro Balm which minimizes the appearance of pores and gives such an amazing base for foundation. Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Foundation in the shade Champagne. The ever so famous Boi-ing Concealer in shades 01 & 02 which really do combat dark circles amazingly well!! Hello Flawless Powder again in the shade Champagne and then to top it all off a super soft small powder brush.

I have to admit when this How To Look The Best At Everything Kit* landed on my desk i was so incredibly excited to see a mini Hello Flawless Foundation and also the Hello Flawless Powder...i had wanted to try both for such a long time. I most definitely was not disappointed i absolutely adore both but maybe the Hello Flawless Powder a little bit more as it seriously gives such a smooth flawless matte-ish finish. I think i prefer it that tiny bit more as the foundation was maybe just one shade too dark for me otherwise i still did love the finish the foundation gave me.

In the picture above i am wearing everything from this kit along with Benefit CORALista Blusher. I literally love what a flawless look the kit has given me but still looking natural at the same time!!

Two things i love about this i love how you get to sample four amazing classics from Benefit and two how it is in such a cute handy kit which is great for travelling and taking anywhere with you.

On the downside my bank balance is going to hate me when i need to purchase the full size Hello Flawless Foundation and Hello Flawless Powder.

RRP £24.50 & available HERE

Benefit you never fail to amaze me!!!

Bourjois Queen Attitude Volume Mascara ♥

Mascara is one of those products i am always changing up and trying new ones, as they don't last very long it is pretty easy to try lots and lots, which i have. I do adore my YSL Shocking Mascara loads but when that had run out this new Bourjois Queen Attitude Volume Mascara* landed on my desk so i thought i would give it a whirl. I have always loved Bourjois Mascara's especially the Volume Fast & Perfect Rotating Mascara i don't know what it is but my lashes just love to have a bit of Bourjois on them ;) 

Queen Attitude Mascara is a multi-benefit volumising mascara designed to make the most of your eyes. It has a brand new brush and formula, it also works to emphasise the outer lashes for a bewitching look. The new brush is a little different, i think some people may struggle with it at first and wonder how it can actually do anything as it is quite a slim brush, i know i found it a little odd at first as i am so used to big fat brushes. Don't be deceived by this little brush it really does volumise and stretch the lashes to extreme with the emphasis on the outer lashes to enlarge and open the eyes. I never thought such a small brush could work so well, i absolutely love it. It doesn't give me as much volume as the Rotating Mascara but it gives a much more natural look which i really really love for during the day. You can always build up this mascara as well to give a much more dramatic look if that's what you prefer. 

To really accentuate the 'Cleopatra Look' apply the mascara while sweeping your lashes sideways, your eyes will immediately appear wider and bigger!

There is one shade for this mascara which is Noir Intense, a deep dense and vibrant black!

It is paraben free and has an easy to remove formula.

I really cant fault this mascara at all, i really love it!

You will have a wait a little longer to try this mascara as it its not being launched until the 30th of November, but it will however be definitely worth the wait.

RRP £9.49
