Hi Loves,

As you know from previous blog posts Studio 10 is not a new brand to the blog I have written about them many times previously here.  There is something particularly lovely about this brand in that it has a natural looking flattering way of giving you makeup that's enough but not overdone, the shades are particularly flattering to mature skin.  I would say it's makeup that softly whispers beauty rather than screams it in your face!

This time around we are discussing two products in the range that are both new to me.

Plumping Blush Glow-Plexion 15ml

Typical of me a product arrives and I just dive straight in without exploring fully, I thought this was just a very large pump of blusher!  Nope  it's way more than that, of course it can be used as a blush applied over foundation, this gives a beautiful soft flattering result, but do be careful as you need the tiniest amount. The product can be used in a number of ways - As a blush, primer, mixed with body lotion or worn alone.  Of course I had to test all of these, as I said it's great as a blush, I looked at it thinking there is no way on this earth that shade could be used as a primer, not in this flipping lifetime!  but away I went, I applied the two good pumps across my whole face and quite frankly looked pretty pink, shocked? yes but I continued, applying foundation directly on top was a serious eye opener, I didn't look bright pink I has a really lovely soft glow to the skin that was warm but not noticeable as actual makeup.  Really quite clever!  The product contains Adipofill™ which helps plump and lift the skin to make it look more naturally rested. I would not personally wear this product alone as it was way to pink for me. I did however mix a couple of pumps with some body moisturiser and this did a fabulous job of brightening the look of the skin which at this time of year is an enormous help.

Lip Perfecting Balm Gloss 4ml

This three in one formulation that is a balm, treatment and lip gloss all in one. Containing Hyaluronic Acid the gloss plumps and conditions the lips without any sting. the peachy golden tone smooths onto the lips with a very slight pigment that picks up more in the light being golden and peachy that looking like a lipstick. Comfortable to wear and is actually really long lasting and moisturising, which again is absolutely perfect for this time of year.  The nice thing about this gloss is that is working to condition while looking super pretty at the same time, it really is incredibly flattering and works well with most make up looks.


Studio 10 makeup is Vegan, Cruelty and paraben free,

Calling on only pure ingredients including Schisandra (schisandra sphenathera) fruit CO2 extract - a powerful adaptogen - renowned throughout Chinese Medicine for centuries for increasing resistance to physiological and environmental stresses such as too much TV and Computer time, pollutants in the air, UVA/UVB light damage the elixir boosts firms and brightens the skin with daily use.  Used directly after cleansing both morning and night, the elixir blends beautifully into the skin and melts away leaving you touchable soft and healthier looking, it's like a wake up call for your face.

Champagne Lifestyle With A Lemonade Pocket #spons







Hiya Darlins,

At this time of year we are surrounded by beauty luxury, which I'm sure you have looked at, maybe wanted to add to your Christmas list but wouldn't dare due to the cost?


Luxe life comes at a price, maybe you have seen your favourite bloggers living the luxe life and thought why not me?  I saw a blog post the other day from a top blogger and thought Ohhh that's a lovely outfit - jumper, skirt and boots.  Of course there were links to enable you to buy the said outfit which was really kind if you just so happened to have SEVEN AND A HALF GRAND knocking around in your purse !!!!!!  funnily enough I didn't and as always thought flipping heck I would need to win the lottery to even consider an outfit of that price, to be fair even if I had my winnings in the bank I wouldn't spend it on fashion clothing, However I would spend it on Beauty luxuries, I would have so many spa experiences people would think I had immigrated, I would buy every luxury calendar that I have seen and lusted after over the last few months, I would sleep on zillion thread count count sheets, wear cashmere daily and waft around wearing the very best fragrances money could buy.  Of course I would sort the family out but at the end of it all I would spoil myself stupid.


Diptyque



Harrods


As women we always, always put ourselves after partners, children, bills and often even the dog, there are a long list of priorities that often aren't us.  so If you just per chance had your numbers come up I think you would deserve to treat yourself to life's luxuries, after all you can't take it with you!



Liberty London

Can you imagine waking up from your perfect bed, slipping on the fluffiest thickest towelling robe ever and running yourself a fragrant bubble bath before starting your day? which of course would be popping along for a Mani/Pedi, facial and a massage.  Seriously, I am sat here sighing at the thought as I type LOL

The thing with all of these thoughts is that you have to be in it to win it, someone has to win so why not us?  I always forget to pick up a ticket and kick myself every time.  Using the Lottoland website makes placing your chances easy, everything is taken care of for you all you have to do is sit back an dream of planning your winnings.

Hi Loves,

The thing about this whole blogging malarkey is that it has led me to discover things I probably would never have heard of.  Recently I was fortunate enough to be invited to the opening of the second branch of Zen Pharmacy based in Baker Street, London. the first is in Knightsbrige.

As the name implies Zen is a pharmacy but not just any pharmacy, the services offered are something completely new to me and quite frankly breathtaking.   It's wellness and beyond!

As well as treatments you can pop in for something as simple as a pack of plasters or treat yourself to some high end beauty products, the range is endless.  I want to say store but Zen is much much more so will use the term health  & beauty emporium, it is beautifully decorated from the white marble floor to the glistening  modern style chandelier, everything oozes style and sophistication, you can contact any of the specialists to discuss any health issues you may have or any aesthetic treatments you are considering, there is a specialist in all forms of wellbeing that could assist you, or simply browse the vast range of products on display, discovering old and new favourites in both health and beauty.

Beatitude Christmas Comfort Luxury Aromatherapy Candle

Hiya Darlins,

I think whenever you think of Christmas it's usually about gift giving, as of course it should be.  But how often have you bought a gift for someone and thought "I wish someone would buy me that"

Beatitude have the slogan  (a state of supreme happiness) on their products, a bold statement some may say!  until you have sampled the fragrances of their products and you have done that deep breath thing that comes when you can't get enough good feeling.  I think the strapline statement is a truth not just a slogan.  I have written about the joys of this brand previously which you can read here.

Beatitude Christmas Comfort Luxury Aromatherapy  Candle 180g

As soon as you open the box to this candle you are met with a fragrance that will have you wanting to take deep slow breaths, Geranium, Cinnamon, Clove & Orange blended into a beautiful warming fragrance.  Beatitude are made only with pure vegetable eco soy wax with a lead free wick and natural fragrances, they contain o paraffin wax or artificial fragrances. 
Although this is an ideal gift I think you would struggle to part with it, what with all the stresses and strains the Christmas season brings, it's a good thing to take time out for yourself to unwind and relax, I personally keep mine in the bathroom for some peace and quiet time.  Talking of peace and quiet the addition of Beatitude Aromatherapy Bath Oil  really hits the spot!



Beatitude Christmas Comfort Luxury Aromatherapy Candle

Beatitude have also produced a fabulous gift cracker to offer a friend or relative some relaxation time with a mini 10ml size of their award winning bath oil. Available in Peace, Patience & Joy.  Here  worth remembering that Beatitude Bath Oils disperse in the water leaving no greasy residue.
