Product Review: Rimmel London Brow Shake Filling Powder

I love experimenting with new makeup, and Rimmel London is one of my favourite makeup brands. So you can imagine how happy I was to be one of the first people to try the new Rimmel London Brow Shake Filling Powder. These beauties landed on my doorstep some days ago, and they have kept me very busy.

CONS

None.

I can’t fault this product or any of the shades. I think it is a smart invention to have all 3 in one product. My favourite shade is the 002 medium brown. I think that shade suits me the most.

Product Review: Salvotore Ferragamo Signorina Eau de Parfum

You should all know by now that I am a recovering perfume addict. Well if you didn’t know, now you do. I love smelling nice so I make sure I never run out of perfumes.

This is my first Salvotore Ferragamo perfume. I have heard a lot about the brand and I have been dying to try some of the products but never had the opportunity until some weeks ago.

I came across this Salvotore Ferragamo Signorina Eau de Parfum while holidaying in Milan. Once I took a sniff, I knew I had to have it, so I was well impressed to receive a 50ml bottle as a surprise gift.

Here is the perfume product description –

‘Signorina’ eau de parfum is the perfect alliance of elegance and memorable. The bright fizzy notes of currant spiced by fresh pink pepper bring a joyful, cheeky character which complements the green vegetal notes. A generous dewy petal note made up of fresh jasmine, rosy peony and the chic femininity of rose offers a creative floral aspect. The airy and creamy texture of panna cotta blended together with soft musks and intriguing woody patchouli notes offer a racy Italian elegance and an unexpected addictiveness.

Top notes: pepper (rose/pink), blackcurrant buds (cassis)

Middle notes: jasmine, peony, rose

Base notes: patchouli, musk, pannacotta accord

I have used this perfume for some weeks now, here are my thoughts:

 

PROS

  1. The pretty bottle was the first thing to catch my eye. I love the pink bow at the top. The packaging is so beautiful, the bottle looks stunning on my dressing table.
  2. It has a light, airy fragrance that smells amazing.
  3. It is quite affordable. Prices start from £44 and go up to £83 for 30ml, 50ml and 100ml bottles, so there is a bottle for everyone.

CONS

  1. I wish it was more long-lasting. It did stay on for a few hours but I expected to stay on for the day or so.

Overall, I do recommend this Salvotore Ferragamo Signorina Eau de Parfum. It is a lovely perfume with a sweet fragrance, so it is definitely worth trying.

Product Review: L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE Lovelier Hands Kit

I love having my hand creams around to keep my hands moisturised, especially in this cold season. I came across this L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE Lovelier Hands Kit on my way to Dubai. I like going through the in flight shopping magazine when flying. It keeps me busy and I am always sure to find a few things I like. I got this L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE Lovelier Hands Kit and the Lip Smacker Coco Cola Tin Box Set. I reviewed the Lip Smacker Set last week, so catch up on that review post (link above) if you missed it.

Now back to this L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE Lovelier Hands Kit.

Enjoy a handful of scents and softness in this exclusive travel retail collection of 6 Shea, Pivoine Flora and Rose Hand creams. Enriched with shea butter, these must have creams will moisturize hands any time of the day. The perfect gift or indulgent treat.

 

Here are my thoughts on this hands kit:

PROS

  1. I love the colourful packaging. So very pretty.
  2. I like the fact that the hand creams come in a 30ml tube. So handy and compact for travel or to pop in your handbag.
  3. They all smell amazing. Like out of this world amazing. My favourite scent is the Shea hand cream.
  4. The hand creams are light textured, non greasy and they moisturise my hands perfectly. My hands also stay moisturise longer with these hand creams than with others.
  5. They absorb quickly as well so no stains anywhere.

CONS

None.

I can’t fault this L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE Lovelier Hands Kit at all. This is my second time using  a L’OCCITANE hand cream kit and I will be buying again once am done with this set. It is definitely one of the best if not the best in the market, and I mean that. These sweet-smelling hand creams should be in everyone’s bags.
