YSL Black Opium Floral Shock and The Shock Mascara

YSL have just launched a brand new fragrance and mascara as a duo- Black Opium Floral Shock and The Shock mascara. This is the first time that YSL have done a make up and fragrance co-launch, and it's a good one. 


YSL Black Opium collection

I've been obsessed with Black Opium for quite some time now, but it was only until YSL sent me a very special package last week containing the collection that I re-discovered my love for it. You see-  when summer came around earlier this year, I stashed all of my cold-weather appropriate fragrances away including Black Opium. But now I'm glad I'm able to wear it again now that Winter has arrived.   

The bottles are absolutely stunning and look very Christmassy with the texturised, glitter effect, making them the perfect festive gifts for friends and family.


Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks

A few months ago, Urban Decay launched a range of Vice Lipsticks. You may have already heard of it as they're marketing it a lot on social media. There are a whopping 100 shades in the collection that are a mixture of mattes, creams, and metallics (if you purchase all 100 shades, the total will come up to £1,500!). Here, I have 3 shades here that I've tried out. 


Chanel LA Sunrise: Illusion D'Ombre in Griffith Green

Chanel recently launched their L.A. Sunrise collection, and here I have one of the Illusion D'Ombre Eyeshadows in Griffith Green. If anyone was to ask me what my favourite eyeshadow is, Chanel's Illusion D'Ombre would be my answer- without a doubt. Yes- they're priced at £25 each but the quality of them exceeds almost every eyeshadow I've tried. 

Elizabeth Arden Sunkissed Pearls Collection

I'm a little late to the party, but here is Elizabeth Arden's Sunkissed Pearls collection for Summer, which includes 3 lip glosses, 3 eyeshadow sticks, a bronzer/highlighter, and a black gel eyeliner (which isn't featured here). 


BOSS Runway Edition Fragrances

Before Nuit launched in 2012, Hugo Boss wouldn't have ever crossed my mind when thinking of one of my favourite fragrance brands. 

Nuit, Jour and Ma Vie changed everything for the BOSS Woman fragrance brand, making it more feminine, and sophisticated. For me, BOSS Woman Orange just wasn't cutting it. So it's great that the fragrance trio are being celebrated by their re-launch as Runway Edition fragrances this month. The new editions have three statement looks inspired by Jason Wu on the bottles and packaging.


Clinique PopStop!

Today, Clinique have launched 'PopStop!'- a glamorous pop up shop in Piccadilly Circus Station where commuters will be able to touch up their make-up on the go and also purchase some Clinique favourites. 

I've seen my fair share of beauty pop ups but this one is by far the most exciting to me, especially since I'm a big fan of Clinique. 


Make Up For Ever has landed in the UK!

The wait is over for beauty obsessives all over the UK- Make Up For Ever is now available at Debenhams! I have some pieces here that I've been playing around with for a while and wanted to share my thoughts on. 


Si by Giorgio Armani review

In 2013, Giorgio Armani launched a fragrance called 'Si', a unique, sophisticated chypre fragrance that's been a popular favourite for women globally, and I fell in love with it straight away.

The bottle of Si is fairly simple and the clear glass reveals the golden tinted juice, signifying that it's a luxurious, elegant fragrance. Overall, it looks like an expensive perfume.

I love chypre fragrances so Si is definitely the fragrance for me. I love how feminine, and luxurious it is; the scent embodies female power, confidence, and elegance. It's a bit of everything to be honest- sweet, floral, woody, and warm so it's unique.

Bags of Beauty Blog: Bits and Bobs from the Chanel 2011 Christmas Collection!

We're in love with the Chanel Christmas Collection, so we thought we'd share our faves from the collection:

Chanel Lipstick in Famous
You can never go wrong with sporting a red lipstick at Christmas! 

Chanel's Christmas collection lipstick in Famous is a red, shimmery colour that's not too bright and not too deep- perfect for those glam Christmas events!

The lipstick is quite pigmented, but that may terrify some of you girls who have the 'Red Lipstick Phobia'. Never fear though, this lipstick has some sort of pinky/coral shimmery hue to it, that makes it look beautiful and not so full on as other red lipsticks!

Chanel Lip-Gloss
Super glossy and shimmery, this lip-gloss is a defo must for Christmas and NYE parties if you're one of those girls who love a little glamour, however expressed with subtlety and not too full-on.

This lip-gloss is a light ballet pink colour that is really smooth, making it easy to apply and glide onto your lips.

On the other hand, if you do love full-on and bursts of colour, you can apply the lip-gloss over the lipstick from the Christmas collection for a glossy, shimmery finish, that will also make your lipstick last longer and crown you the Queen of Christmas Glamour!

Chanel Duo Eyeshadows
These eye-shadows are so gorgeous that we fell in love with them immediately! They have the best features- they're super pigmented, lovely colours, and they're shimmery and last quite a long time too.

The vanilla colour can be used as a sheer base for a smoky eyed look, or even on its own for a natural look, and the shimmery black colour can be applied 'winged out' along with the vanilla coloured base. Smoky eyes are a huge trend this winter!

You also receive an applicator and a brush so you can create whatever style you want. The product also comes in a cute little pouch with the Chanel logo on it!
