Buxom Big & Healthy lip plumping lipsticks and lip glosses

buxom lipstickI am happy to present to you my latest discovery – I have found some amazing goodies in funky packages with colours to suit every one complete with tingling sensations for plumped soft moistorised lips!

Their slogan is “Buxom always kisses on the first date” – well, I don’t know about that, I am a bit old fashioned you see. But, one thing I know for sure, you would definitely want to kiss those lips and not just on the first date. They’re packed with antioxidant vitamins A and E that make your lips truly irresistable, voluptious, soft, smooth and so kissable…

OK, a bit more about these lipsticks that are actually lipliners as well. They last all day long but don’t dry your lips out and feel like a velvety lip balm! How amazing is that? And the packaging is just great – it doesn’t look like any old lipstick – it looks like a really cool pen from outer space and the colours are named after cities! I am a proud owner of Las Vegas which is – guess? – a lovely candy pink! Barcelona is a scarlet apple – how yummy is that? And San Francisco, a dusty mauve. I did look for London as well, but it wasn’t anywhere to be seen, so I wondered whether they make it and apparently they do, I saw it on their website, I guess I just wasn’t lucky.

Normally I am not a fan of bright colours on my lips, in fact I’m scared of colours. Can you imagine? They just magically transformed me! I want all those colours. You won’t be disappointed!

buxom lip glossesFor those who prefer lip glosses they are just as good. So you can either wear those with Buxom lipstics for an extra umph and plump or just on their own. They are long lasting as well as plumping with a good colour pigment. The lip glosses each have girl’s names – mine is called Betty.

And you can see the colours with pictures of girls in seductive little numbers like they just stepped out of Moulin Rouge or Burlesque. I even wondered whether I should choose one because I liked the girl’s name rather than the colour of the lipgloss lol.

And yeah the prices, both the lipstics and the lipglosses cost $18 which is about £12?

Sephora 5th Avenue New York

Hey, I have just got back from New York! So, guess where I went apart from famous touristy places? Of course, where else could you find me if not in my favourite long missed Sephora?

For those that don’t know what I am talking about – as it is unfortunately missing from the UK – it’s a makeup, fragrance, skin care, bath & body, hair, tools & accessories paradise! And, for those who miss it as much as I do, you can still find it in Europe. You will see me soon on a Eurostar train going to Paris for some top ups for sure!

Escale à Portofino by Dior

Escale à Portofino by Dior

This is the first from Dior’s “cruise collection”. With its lemony, citrussy and cologney smell it would suit both women and men. Ingredients include Calabrian bergamot, Italian citron, Sicilian petitgrain, bitter almond and orange blossom, which makes it really flat and without imagination. Too simple for me, but it will have it’s customers. Eau de toilette only.

I like the advertising visual that comes with it. A sophisticated, rich women sitting on a sun-baked staircase – it makes me dream of an exotic holiday in Portofino.

If you’re really into all things lemony and citrussy, try Eau D’Hadrien by Annick Goutal which has lemon, citron tree and grapefruit. Goutal had the sense to release this same fragrance twice; there’s a man’s and woman’s version that are exactly the same!

Chloe by Chloe

Chloe by Chloe

Finally the long awaited eponymous fragrance from Chloe and it did not disappoint. It’s floral, fruity, girlie and happy. In fact, I could see a little bottle of this in my handbag.

Some of my friends said that they would use it as an air freshener but they’re cheap!

Chanel Le Vernis, Blue Satin

Chanel Le Vernis, Blue SatinThis dark blue nail varnish looks almost black and is not for everyone. There are quite a few other blue nail varnishes on the market at the moment but, for me, this is spot on. It’s not one of those light or pearly blues as it has depth, richness and density. Although it’s edgy and urban it’s still classic and chic. It looks great on well-manicured, short nails and could go well both with an evening dress or a pair of jeans. It’s a spring/summer must-have. Don’t forget to apply a top coat.

So, add brilliance to your fingertips with colours from the runways of Paris. A state-of-the-art formula strengthens and moisturises your nails. It comes in a unique patented non-spill bottle with wiping action for easy application.


Chance Eau Fraiche from Chanel

Chance Eau Fraiche from Chanel

This smell lifts my spirits up. One of my favourites and highly recommended for lovers of freshness.

Chanel deserve congratulations for this exciting, nose-catching and feminine scent. Great for spring and summer as it’s floral refreshed with citron and water hyacinth and it has an original green colour!

Happy Spirit fragrance from Chopard

Happy Spirit fragrance from ChopardSad to say that Happy Spirit is very disappointingly ordinary. When I first smelt it I was like, “well, OK, but nothing to pull you in”. It is one of these fragrances you don’t feel the need to purchase. Some customers may get it for the sake of buying something new. I wouldn’t spend £40 for 50ml which was the price in Harrods where it was exclusively sold for a while.

The heart shaped bottle must have increased sales over the Valentine’s period but I think it’s tacky.

Le Jasmin from Annick Goutal

Le Jasmin from Annick GoutalThis was a limited edition fragrance that sold out a few years ago and unavailable until now! I don’t know if this time it’ll be a limited edition but let’s hope so! It smells of jasmin for one second and that’s it! I don’t know what else is in there but it’s so strong that it makes me cough.
