Sure Christmas time is all about giving but let’s face it. Sometimes the limited edition beauty sets are so good that they’re gone before your forgetful boyfriend can pick it up in time. Sometimes, you’ve just got to act fast!

Read more to find out which six sets and limited edition releases are my selfish must-haves for the Holiday season year.  View Post

Smell the roses

Smell the roses

{Rendition of roses}

About a year ago I decided that the scent of rose was totally ‘cool’ and no longer reserved for grandma’s hand soap and talc. Rose in colour, rose in flavour, rose in scent. So many new beauty products were adopting the scent and I embrace it with open arms.

I recently purchased the Fresh Rose Floral Toner and that’s what set me off back in to the rose rhythm. An alcohol-free toner that isn’t an effort of adding an ‘extra step’ to your skincare routine. The spray pump allows for a refreshing, simple application. I love using this softly scented product to set my makeup when I’m done, it’s such a pretty touch.

{Rose care for your lips}

Take Dior’s Creme De Rose Smoothing Lip Balm, a silky seduction of rose-scented care for your pout. Hydrating and protecting with an SPF 10, this pretty sits beautifully on my desk.

{Tools of rose}

Bdellium brushes are impressive in their own right but the Pink Bamboo extension is for the princess in you. I adore this 975 Mixed powder brush for sweeping on my Les Beige or Ambient Lighting powder on.

{Rose on your tips}

The quality of Dior polishes blew it out of the water in 2013 and the Darling addition to their permanent collection is the perfect hue of a true, rosey pink for your tips.

{Your personal rose}

If anyone is going to achieve the perfect, rose scent, it’ll be Diptyque. A soothing rendition of the classic flower, this roses candle is the best to be burning while you work.

{The most romantic rose}

I fell in love with this fragrance from the initial spray to the delicate dry-down. Roses de Chloe is a luminous blend of fresh cut roses, bergamot, rose essence, magnolia accord, white musk and amber.

It’s incredibly romantic and perfect for date nights. You couldn’t be more feminine wearing this if you tried.

{L’oreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipcolour}

“It’s not that great, it feels like I’m kissing glue”. Boys don’t like sticky kisses. I once asked my other half what it felt like to kiss me whilst I was wearing a lipgloss. Swiftly after this I only began applying my sticky, colourful lips after I said my goodbyes for the day. Now, I’m aiming to buy the lightest of lip products that I can get.

{Shades of pinks}

The new Colour Riche Caresse Lipcolours by L’Oreal are perfect for just that. A weightless lipstick that feels like a lip balm but colours like a sheer lipstick, with great colour payoff. The new product provides way more vibrant colour than their predecessors the Colour Riche Lipbalm (L’Oreal’s answer to the Revlon Lip Butters), yet still adds a moisturizing feel to the lips.

{Pink Cashmere}

{Day time Favourite: Sunset Angora}

{Rose Taffeta}

{Night time favourite: Violet Chiffon}

{Cherry Tulle}

{A great alternative summer, nights lipstick: Violet Chiffon}

Available from July 2010, $12.99.
