Christmas is almost here, and the festive season is in full swing. As we are in the season of gift-buying, I will be publishing a couple of Christmas Gift  Guides on Fashion and Style Police. I promise they would be worth your while, and you will definitely get loads of gift ideas from the Christmas Gift Guides.

Here are 3 amazing products/brands, you should shop this Christmas.

 

LIORA Beauty Chocolate £6.96

I have never heard of s beauty chocolate before until I came across LIORA Beauty Chocolate. LIORA offers a wide range of artisanal, small-batch chocolates that benefit a variety of ages and skin types, and designed to enhance general health and beauty.

The base blend is 54% dark chocolate – a mixture of two fractions from Venezuela and Ghana – flavoured with 100% natural vanilla from Madagascar, and organic natural oils.

I love the idea behind LIORA Beauty Chocolate and I believe they would make great Christmas gifts for the beauty and chocolate lovers. Who can say no to quality chocolates that also enhance our skin? I know for a fact that I won’t be able to resist these type of beauty chocolates. Plus, they are also very affordable at just £6.96. There are variety of flavours to go for and you even have the option of creating your own LIOLA beauty box and selecting 6 yummy flavours. So get in there and grab some beautifying yummy chocolates and put a smile on the face of that special person.

Mimosa Eau de Toilette £22

This Mimosa fragrance would make an ideal gift this Christmas. I adore the beautiful packaging. I think the bottle is really pretty. And as a perfume lover, I would love to receive this perfume this Christmas. I love the look and sound of the fragrance.

A symbol of femininity and regeneration, the mimosa flower creates a fascinating and playful scent, capable of surprising and inebriating all the senses.

This Mimosa Eau de Toilette is available exclusively to Marks and Spencer for £22.

 

Toppik Products from £7.95

Toppik products are great for Christmas stocking fillers. These products are made of colored keratin protein. They blend undetectably with existing hair strands to instantly create the appearance of naturally thick, full hair and eyebrows. So beauty lovers would definitely adore them!

Product Review: MAC Amber Eyeshadow Palette

I gave away a MAC Amber Eyeshadow Palette  to a lucky winner some weeks ago, and I have finally gotten around to trying my own palette. I love trying new makeup, and I am a huge MAC fan.

MAC – founded in 1984, in Toronto, Canada, has been one of the leaders in the beauty industry for years now. I think majority of their products are great and suit my skin, so I am always keen to try something new from the brand.

If I had an unlimited budget and a bit more space, I would buy a lot more makeup. I have quite a lot of makeup at the moment. I won’t call myself a makeup freak, but I am slowly getting there. I have over 20 lipsticks, so many eyeshadow palettes, foundations and different types makeup, that my Marks and Spencer makeup bag is struggling to contain them all.

I know my makeup is nothing close to what some beauty bloggers have (I know some bloggers with hundreds of lipsticks), but I still think I have a lot! Like I said, I wish I could have some more, but there is space for them. I would literally have to move house to accommodate any more makeup, lol. So for now, all the makeup I own have to be kept in this bag. I am in no mood to call the movers! Our current house may not be our forever home, but I hate moving, so I don’t see us moving house anytime soon. I can see us staying put for a bit.

Back to the MAC Amber Eyeshadow Palette review. Here is the product description:

This well-edited palette features a colour wave of amber hues that offer countless shade combinations. It provides an array of textures from matte to satin to frost for creating a variety of looks for both day and night. The saturated, soft and smooth hues are all packaged in one compact for easy portability.

Here are my thoughts on this palette –

PROS

  1. I love all nine shades. The natural shades suit my skin tone.
  2. The shades are very easy to apply and take off.
  3. The shades are long-lasting, stayed in place all day.
  4. It is a multi-tasking palette. It can take you from day-to-night effortlessly.
  5. It is easily accessible online and in various beauty stores.
  6. Some shades are shimmer, some shades are matte, so there is a shade for everyone.

CONS

  1. The palette is smaller than I expected. I expected the original MAC palette size, but this is smaller.
  2. It is quite pricey at £25 for what you get.

 

Overall, I do recommend this MAC Amber Eyeshadow palette. I think the shades are beautiful and great for a natural look.

What are your thoughts on this palette? Have you used it before?

Jourdan Dunn Covers ELLE UK April 2016

Jourdan-Main-cover-April_preview_1

Jourdan Dunn is on the cover of ELLE UK April 2016 issue and she looks amazing on it.I am loving the old school vibes I am feeling from this cover. Jourdan is one woman I truly admire. She had a rough time growing up so quickly, being a mother at a young age but she didn’t let any of that stop from her aiming for the top.

She is one of the highest paid supermodels in the world today. She earned her spot on the Forbes list after earning a whooping £2.4 million in 2014, and she is not relaxing anytime soon. This 25-year-old beauty is one of the most recognisable faces in the UK, with her very lucrative Maybelline contract and campaigns for Burberry, Balmain and H&M under her belt, and that is not all. This smart young woman is launching a children’s wear range with Marks & Spencer and Fluid World called Lil Londunn,and the range will  consist of 22 adorably edgy boy’s and girl’s separates. I am looking forward to Lil Londunn’s launch so I can go shop for my twins. I am sure anything she touches will be top quality.

In this issue, Jourdan talks about Twitter regret, diversity on the runway, the pressures of being a young mother, and her huge plans for building a brand. I have not read anything about her in a bit, so I will be popping to the shops, to get a copy of this issue. At £4.40, my budget will be hit, but I will class this as a ‘business expense’, lol.

Here are some excerpts from her interview with ELLE Magazine UK:

Jourdan on diversity in fashion:

‘There are definitely a lot more girls of colour being represented. But I also feel like we’re 100% still not there. I want to see us get to a place where seeing a black girl, anywhere, is not such a big deal. Why can’t it just be the norm to see black models in campaigns and on covers and runways? It’s still too much of a big thing when this happens.’

I agree. There are definitely more girls of colour on the runaways, billboards and campaign ads, but there is still a lot more to be done. The diversity issue still needs addressing, from where I am sitting. I would like to see more black girls on the runaways, billboards and in campaign ads. There is still a lot of room for improvement as far as diversity in fashion is concerned. Do you agree?

What do you think of this magazine issue? Lets chat, drop me a comment.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend.
