Lipsticks So Healthy You Could Almost Eat Them

A question that used to weird me out was “what does the lipstick taste like?”. When I first started blogging about beauty products (and in particular lip products), the taste was something I didn’t think I needed to comment on but you’d be surprised how many people ask!

Licking lipstick off my lips isn’t something that I do if I can help it (it kind of freaks me out - it’s not knowing what it is that I’m ingesting but I'm funny about things like parabens anyway!) but it is said that women ingest as much as 7 pounds of lipstick in to her body, either absorbed through the skin of her lips or swallowed when eating. Eeeeks.

Natural Vitamins For Your Skin | A Fruity Range From Award-Winning Nspa


I tried nspa products for the first time a couple of months and as far as first impressions go, nspa made a pretty good one!! Their skincare rivals the likes of Glamglow and Liz Earle, while their body and bath range has a bit of The Body Shop about them.

Still, with their own brand identity, award-winning nspa are designed to treat, care, and de-stress even the busiest of people. I love nothing more than a pamper and bubble bath after a stressful and difficult day at the office, it does wonders in resetting my body and mind. A cliche, I know, but it really does work. You've got remember to take some time to de-stress after a long day.

The Nude Lipstick Obsession Continues | Green People Damask Rose

I haven’t jumped on the massive beauty trend that is the nude lip trend (you can see from my lipstick collection that I'm more of a pink, coral, and red kinda gal), so it has taken a while to find my perfect nude matte lipstick. My version of the perfect nude is a pink-peach, but then that’s not a true nude, is it?! 

Through phases of experimenting, I kind of gave on my quest for a nude matte lipstick that suited my skin tone. I’ve tried reddish nudes but they are too dark for my complexion and the paler nudes washes me out. Avon’s True Matte Colour in Marvellous Mocha comes close to perfection but it was recently pipped to the post (just about) by Green People’s Damask Rose*, a special edition Velvet Matte Lipstick released in celebration of Green People’s 20th Anniversary. Celebrating a birthday with a new lipstick launch? I am more than ok with this!

The Nude Lipstick Obsession Continues


Green People’s Damask Rose Velvet Matte Lipstick (£15.00) is a universally flattery nude-rose shade that has been compared to MAC Kinda Sexy and NYX Stockholm. The nude-pink is a nice shade for anyone who doesn’t feel comfortable wearing a bright lipstick during the day but want a bit of colour on your lips to complete the look. Avon’s Marvellous Mocha, on the other hand, is not as versatile and can only be worn when creating a certain look (the 90s style Andrea Corr look, to be precise!). I love them both but now I have a nude lippy for day time and another one for nights out.

Urban Decay To Launch New Naked Heat Palette This Summer

Urban Decay's Naked Heat Palette is launching a pre-sale in the US on the 12th June and then released nationwide in The States on 30th June, and while there isn’t a confirmed release date for the UK at the time of writing this - word on the street is that the UK release date for Naked Heat Palette is July.

Everyone goes mad for them and this one is going to be no exception. It’s going to be one of the biggest launch of the Summer, as all the Urban Decay Naked Palettes are, so I doubt they’re going to keep us waiting for much longer than our US pals! (eeeep, you won't keep us waiting, will you, UD!?)

Babe Power | Missguided Launch Debut Fragrance

The rate in which Missguided has grown since they launched their website in 2009 has been phenomenal. As a business in the fast-paced fashion industry based in an even faster digital space, the online retailer is a force to be reckoned with. 

Taking 'industry first' risks and being one step ahead of their competition with the help from numerous celebrity and global influencer collaborations, they have earned well-deserved success as a global leader and multi-platform fashion business.

From an outside perspective, I believe that one of the key to their success is that Missguided understand all things digital inside out. From beginning to end, they are a quick-thinking, fast-moving, millenial-attracting super brand that understands what the modern consumer want.

One look at their oh-so “Instagrammable” first, new, physical store based in Westfield Stratford City tells us that digital remains the forefront, and that sharing content and being an advocate for the brand is an important part of the customer's shopping experience. They’re certainly the kind of brand that encourages their customers to take photos of their shop and spread it all over social media, as opposed to the more traditional old-hat retailer that tell people off for it. I know they have their reasons for it, but times are a-changin’. We just wanna show our friends on social media how cool your shop is!
