Diego Dalla Parma Rosso Rossetto Lipstick

Diego Dalla Parma Rosso Rossetto Lipstick

Diego Dalla Palma is an Italian makeup brand. I have seen their products available at Marks and Spencer and their range stands out due to the glossy white packaging, which is attractive as it stands out greatly from the usual black. I tried the Rosso Rossetto Lipstick in shade 109, Geranium. It combines the function of providing lip colour with the benefits of skincare, as it is enriched with ‘HILURLIP’ which acts as a plumper, moisturiser and is anti-ageing too. It also contains Raspberry Seed Oil, Vitamin E (an increasingly popular ingredient), Jojoba and Argan Butters and Cramide Complex, … Read More

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Balm Perfector

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Balm Perfector

I was a real fan of the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector because it offered that perfect texture between a lip balm and a lip stain plus it smelled fantastic. Well Clarins have gone one step better and released the Instant Light Natural Lip Balm Perfector which is a luxury lip balm.

It is a melting gel lip balm that contains Wild Mango Butter and Shea Butter with the aim of nourishing, moisturising and protecting your lips. It glides onto your lips effortlessly leaving a sheer look with a tint of colour. I found myself reapplying it every few hours. … Read More

Rodial Dragon’s Blood

Rodial Dragon’s Blood

So Rodial and I have a love/hate relationship, but saying that I have used some items from their Dragon’s Blood range previously and it’s probably the only range I’ve actually liked by the brand. So given the opportunity to trial some more items from the range I went ahead. I received the Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Moisturiser SPF15 and the Hyaluronic Night Cream.

Now it obviously doesn’t contain actually Dragon’s Blood, but the ingredient is sourced from the red sap of the Croton Lechleri tree, also known as ‘Sangre de Drago’ in Spanish, which translates to Dragon’s blood. It … Read More

MIZANI Thermasmooth Range

MIZANI Thermasmooth Range

The MIZANI Thermasmooth Smooth Guard Serum and Shine Extend Anti-humidity Spritz are part of the four step straightening system, designed to repair, protect and smooth the hair without a chemical commitment. This system is ideal for natural, curly, relaxed or colour treated hair, and great for those transitioning or to extend the time between relaxers and is said to last two weeks. As I did not get the opportunity to try the shampoo and conditioner, I will be commenting on these as individual products and not the system as a whole. MIZANI uses an exclusive C3 smoothing complex, which just … Read More
