Picked this up at Boots over the weekend because my beloved Curlmaster broke – I forgot to plug it into the converter and poof the fuse was blown =*(
At first I was a little skeptical about this but the sales lady kept talking me into getting it and I am so glad that I did. It only took seconds for it to heat up and it has a total of nine settings ranging from 120C to 200C. The medium sized barrel (25mm) is also perfect for creating curls or waves and the micro crystal feature did make my curls smoother and last longer lasting than ceramic curlers.
Unlike my old Curlmaster, this one has a LCD display which makes it so much easier to read the different settings. Plus this has an auto 60 minutes shut-off function so I no longer have to worry about burning down the apartment because I left the curling iron on. Yay for this!
Farouk Chi Turbo Flat Iron Review.
For years, I have heard many good things about Sisley, a high-end skincare line from France. And now that I am in my mid-twenties, I paid a visit to the closest Sisley counter at House Of Frasier looking to splurge on a nice eye cream for myself.
Initially, the sales assistant had recommended Sisley Eye and Lip Contour Complex for younger skin but since I wear eye makeup on a daily basis and my eye area is on the drier side, I wanted something richer to prevent wrinkles and help with puffiness and circles – hence the Sisleya Eye and Lip Contour Cream.
The eye cream is formulated with a high concentration of active ingredients including Padina Pavonica algae extract, Matricaria, Licorice, Wheat proteins, and vitamins E, B5 and F to moisturize, tone, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and prevent the appearance of under-eye puffiness and dark circles. The texture felt slightly thicker than other eye creams I have used but still really easy to spread and easily absorbed. It also did not feel greasy and it worked great with my concealer.
I have been using this for almost a few months now but it only took one application to see a difference. My eyes were instantly more toned, moisturized and less puffy and over time, I think my undereye circles have faded a little too. Definitely worth the hefty £80 price tag!
When I saw the new Bourjois Regard Paillete Glitter Pencil (~$11) on display at Boots, I could not resist. The pencil comes in four gorgeous colors – black, baby blue, teal and brown – all packed with silver glitter. I ended up bring home the black one, Noir éblouissant 31, since I just ran out of black eyeliner.
I always thought Chanel foundations were pretty good but after seeing a picture of this girl wearing the Chanel Pro Lumiere Professional Finish Makeup and looking absolutely flawless, I knew I had to go check it out.
Just when I am starting to get bored of MAC’s recent collections, they released their annual holiday collection for 2006 – Formal Black. This collection has got to be one of the best holiday collections from MAC. Not only is the packaging totally cute(*love* the lushy fabric and black bead chain!) but all the colors are extremely gorgeous! I was so tempted to get them all but only picked up a few things. More after the jump!
