Kate Moss for Rimmel Lipsticks-Shades 16 and 03

These lipsticks have been on my radar for a while now to pick up from town,so when i looked at my advantage cards deal in Boots and saw i had vouchers for £2 off any lipstick in store i knew i had to pick some up.
The two shades I decided to purchase were shade 16 which is a yellow based coral pink and shade 03 which is a gorgeous neutral brown shade.

The collection is based on lipsticks which have been designed by Kate Moss and myself being a skeptic was worried that the quality of the product wouldn't be as good which i find is the case for many celebrity endorsed products but oh i was wrong! I absolutely love everything about these lipsticks!
The packaging is stylish with a sleek black design with Kate Moss's signature on it which is in varying colours.

The quality of these lipsticks is also brilliant,with both of the shades being extremely pigmented,which can be seen from the swatch below. Also, the lipsticks have a lovely creamy texture once applied to the lips which reminds me of the consistency of MAC cremesheen lipsticks,with both types leaving your lips feeling smooth and nourished.
The lasting power of these lipsticks isn't the longest,with each shade staying on the lips for around 3-4 hours,so if you are after a long lasting lipstick these may not be your first choice,but if this is not the case then for the price these lipsticks are brilliant!
The final aspect which i really love about these products is the taste!It reminds me of a cherry coke,with the taste being quite sweet and somewhat artificial,but even with this being the case i really love it. I don't know myself personally if this is the case with all
Rimmel lipsticks or just this collection as i haven't actually tried any other lipsticks from this brand,but if it is,then please let me know.
I know there are many people who do not like flavoured lip products,so i am warning you that if this is the case for yourself then these lipsticks may not be right for you.

Overall a really brilliant high street/drugstore product which i have been really impressed by!I will hopefully try to pick up some more from the collection soon! (i currently my eye on the shade 20 which is a bright barbie pink!)

These lipsticks are priced at around £5.50 and are available in Boots and Superdrug. (In Boots currently they are priced at £3.99!)

Have you tried these lipsticks before?Would you buy a product simply for the celebrity endorsement?

Montagne Jeunesse Travel Pamper Pack

Hello Everyone!
This post is all about the Montagne Jeunesse new travel pack of goodies which i was kindly sent by the brand to road test. 

The set is a booklet containing sachets of a number of different products which as the name suggests have been put together in this set for people on the go or are off travelling. 

The pack contains:
1 x Skin Smoother (10g)
1 x Passion Peel Off Masque (10ml)
2 x Body Wash (15 ml each)
1 x Foot Cooler (10ml)
1 x Intensive Spa Hair Masque (15ml) 

I have to say the packaging containing each of these sachets which is a booklet style is a brilliant idea and definitely suits the travel theme which this product is targeted at. By containing the sachets neatly away allows the owner to pack them both securely and easily within their luggage. In addition, the small and compact packaging means that it won't take up a large amount of room within the individuals luggage. 

The range of products within the set are particularly good as they have all major areas covered,meaning the individual taking this set away with them does not have to worry about a large number of different full size products with them. I personally do always take a larger shower gel and shampoo/conditioner with me when i travel as i tend to use a large amounts of each,but for a weekend away this set would be perfect.

Both the masque and the scrub are nice addition to the set as they are both products i personally don't generally pack when i am travelling if i am taking full size or even travel size products away. However as they are in the pack alongside other typical travel products i would definitely make use of them and would allow me to have a pamper session while away

My personal highlight of this set is definitely the foot cooler. While away on holiday i suffer badly with becoming overheated and can often start to feel bad from being too hot. This product is brilliant as once applied it leaves your feet feeling really cool and fresh. I wish this product would be available in full size which it currently isn't , however having it in a sachet that i can travel with is really handy as i can use it on the go and apply it if the situation arises that i feel that i need to cool down.

Overall although there are some products in this set which aren't neccessarily products i would think of taking away with me travelling, i think there are some real gems within the set and definitely worth purchasing if you are going away travelling. It is a set which is really practical and handy for packing and also allows the owner not to have to take away lots of different bottles of products away with them. 

The set is available from the Montagne Jeunesse website for £5.00 which i think is a reasonable price for the variety and number of products you recieve within the set.

I have to say that I have always said that no matter if i purchase a product with my own money or if i am sent it, that each and every review will be honest and all my own opinion, which is the case with this review also.

Hello everyone!
Just a quick heads up about an amazing freebie available with this months issue of Marie Claire magazine. As many of you may already know they are currently giving away a free full size bottle of Ciate nail polish with each copy of the magazine which is a brilliant bargain as each bottle of polish usually retails for £9 and the magazine is just £3.90!
This months Marie Claire Cover!

There are 3 shades available to choose from (or pick up all 3 like i did!) which are bon bon (nude grey/purple), Purple Sherbet (lilac) and Jelly Bean (Bright blue based fushia).
Aren't they beautiful?!

If you are interested in picking up these i would suggest you do so quickly as these types of deals have a habit of selling out quickly!
I am yet to try my bottles as i just bought them yesterday but i will of course let you know what i think of them as i test them out.

Let me which,if any, you pick up and also your thoughts on Ciate polishes in general as this will be my first time trying them!
