Lancome (Make Up 2 - Top 10 for 2010)

Now I have to confess I've been a little naughty. In my original list I said I was going to try out Bobbi Brown Lip Colour in Beige... well I'm not. I changed my mind I fell in love with another lip colour and I thought I should review that instead.

Lancome L'Absolu Rouge LipstickCoral is supposed to be this seasons lip colour - I've been wearing it on my toes for ages but couldn't imagine it looking very good on my lips but after a lot of testing (I know you aren't supposed to actually try them but how can you tell if you don't...) I settled on Lancome's L'Asolu Rouge Advanced Replenishing and Reshaping Lipcolour in Orange Sacree. I LOVE IT. Ok so it tastes so good that I've chewed most of it off before I get to work and I did immediately had to steal my mums lip liner so it didn't make me look lipless (Cover Girl Lip Liner in Hazel if you want to know) but the colour is just so summery and fantastic I don't mind.

The only problem with this lipstick was the price - it's £18 which for me is a lot to spend on a lipstick. I don't know why... maybe I'm behind the times. I have to say that initially I did have buyer's remorse. £18 can get you so many other things that you might need but now you'd have trouble separating me from this new favourite. This is a real treat for yourself so go in and get it guilt free... i'm sure you've done something to deserve it xx

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic - (Product 2 - Top 10 for 2010)

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin TonicI know I reviewed a Liz Earle product last month but as they are supposed to be used together I thought it made sense to try out this Instant Boost Skin Tonic immediately after. I was really blown away by the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser and although my skin feels a lot smoother since using the Instant Boost Skin Tonic I couldn't really see any difference - however, I have been told by a couple of people how great my skin's been looking so it obviously is working!

At first I thought it was a bit drying but actually it's really not and although I always moisturise after using skin tonics I've been using a really small amount just to give a little extra moisture and I'm really impressed with how this has helped my skin look clear and smooth (and it gave me a great excuse to try out the Skin Repair Moisturiser which is great - a tiny amount makes a big difference). The Instant Boost Skin Tonic is so refreshing and contains Vitamin E (which is a great antioxidant and a must for those of you in cities), cucumber and Aloe Vera which soothe and soften the skin and Glycerin which draws water from the atmosphere to the skin. I'm so impressed with all the Liz Earle products that I've tried that I really recommend that you get the Essentials Try Me Kit. It has everything in it that you need for only £21.75 so its also great for presents!
