Lancôme La Nuit Trésor

Lancôme La Nuit Trésor

Last week when I shared one of my favourite new fragrances, I mentioned that there was a second fragrance that had captured my heart! So, today, I’m excited to reveal to you the new and totally decadent La Nuit Trésor fragrance from Lancôme.

Oh la la la!

While I’m smitten with Chanel CHANCE Eau Tendre de Parfum and it’s the perfect day time scent, Lancome La Nuit Trésor has become my favourite valentine for night. It’s sexy, saucy and seductive and like a precious and rare gem – but in a fragrance.

New Summer Scents: Floral, Fruity and Feminine (Part 1)

With a new season, comes the opportunity to not only update your wardrobe, but change your mood. And what better way to do that than with a new summer scent? If you love soft, feminine, floral or fruity scents that scream summer and leave you with that feeling of spring in your step, perhaps one (or more) of these new scents will be just the fragrance you’re looking for to capture your summer 2015/16 mood. Fruity and Sparkling Emporio Armani Diamonds Violet (50ml EDP R895) launched this September and is the latest addition to the Emporio Armani Diamonds “It” Girl collection. A line of fragrances that pays tribute to cool, dazzling stones and captures the vibrant colours and sparkle of the young, “Emporio Armani Woman.” It’s a scent that is bright, young and dazzling, with prominent fruity notes of passion fruit, lychee and raspberry, combined with sweet elements of praline, vanilla and patchouli. YUM! Escada Joyful Moments (50ml EDP R865) is another sparkling and floral-fruity fragrance that’s creation was to inspire the thought of savouring the indulgent moments of joy in life.

Lancome Hypnôse Volume-à-Porter Mascara

Lancome Hypnôse Volume-à-Porter Mascara

I have this thing with mascara… I love it! It’s the one essential makeup must-have I just can’t, make that, won’t live without! It’s fair to say that the Lancôme Hypnôse mascaras are among my faves. They just seem to get it right, better and better with each new version, and the new Hypnôse Volume-à-Porter, Cashmere Sensation Volume Mascara is without a doubt one fabulous mascara. It’s the new Mascara for the woman who understands the power of her gaze! In it’s jewel-like lacquered bottle, Hypnôse Volume-à-Porter Mascara maintains all of its mesmerising curves, updated in sleek gunmetal grey packaging. In a single stroke it dresses the lashes in an elegant slick of volume, creating the blackest black, lushest lashes that still look incredibly natural and above all, feel comfortable! For me, I have okay length lashes (although I wouldn’t mind them being a bit longer ya know), but they are dead straight with no curve – something I always look for in a mascara, since my lids  face downwards, and I NEED the curve and the volume to open up my eyes. This mascara does a great job at coating the lashes and giving each one a lift. It separates each lash evenly, without a single clump, but at…

Currently Testing Skincare: Recover, Repair, Illuminate and Exfoliate

So let’s talk about something on everyones lips right now! Well, if you’re in South Africa at least… the cold! Dang! Baby, its cold outside! And your skin is probably feeling it to! I know mine is, or was at least – but I’ve added some new steps to my skincare regime and currently testing some great products to help skin recover, repair, illuminate and exfoliate this winter… 1. Lancome Advanced Genifique YEUX Light-Pearl Lancome make some of the best eye-care products in the world and their new baby, Advanced Genifique YEUX Light-Pearl is brand new eye brightening system that is simply amazing! Infused with light and a new flexible applicator (love it), this illuminating eye contour serum will add new dimension to your eye contours. It’s so special, the formulation is protected by seven patents! Regular use has shown that within a month, eyes look visibly bigger and those nasty eye bags, reduced. I’ve only been using it for about a week, and I can already see an improvement in my eye contours. Granted, I’ve been a naughty beauty blogger and haven’t been very good with applying eye care, so it was a bit of a happy shock to my eye contours that I started…
