Anyway, the watermelon one is way too pale so I got Chunky Cherry and I am pleased to report it is excellent and exactly what I've been looking for. It's basically a tinted lip balm, it's not a gloss. So your lips look natural but better. And that's what we want make up to do, right? Recommended. Plus 10% off at Debenhams this weekend.

Today CoverBoy asked me to buy him a present. Not one to turn down my dear true love, I headed to The Body Shop and picked some of this rather nice shower gel. It's a new range called Earth Lovers. It has no nasties in it and if you buy one, you get another one half price. I used the fig and rosemary one (hey, share and share alike) in my bath earlier and it's really rather lovely.
If you are looking for a non-chocolate Easter present (not sure why you would be) then this could be the ticket. He got me an After Eight easter egg. We were both content.

Want, want, want. For summer. Perfect. Anyone have one?

I know I said that I couldn't be bothered with the Clinique Laser Focus but since buying VitaZing I have been using it every morning as it gives a little extra something under the tinted moisturiser and it's been a success. However, I still think £45 a throw is steep. Yesterday I was browsing Boots (is there a better way to spend 20 minutes on a saturday?) and I noticed this so I bought it on a whim. There is currently an offer with a third off all S&G products so it was a steal.
I used it last night and this morning and I can't see how the Clinique one is any better to be honest. Also, this one smells nicer. I shall be keeping a close eye and reporting back naturally.
In other news VitaZing is magnificent and is my top find of the year so far. Run, don't walk, and buy it. You won't regret it.

Hayfever season is here. I sneeze a lot and shock, horror - eye make-up smudges. Not a problem with this little beauty in your bag. It works really well at removing mascara smudges. And it is less than a fiver. I think we all need one.

I wouldn't buy it again based on all round mascara performance, however the colour is magnificent. It's hard to explain what a difference it makes, just so much softer but in a much more interesting way than a brown mascara. It looks fabulous with grey/green/brown eye shadow. In fact, I imagine it looks great with all eye shadow.
It freaked me out a bit when I removed it on day one and my cotton wool pad was purple. When it flakes (and all mascara does on me after 12 hours) it flakes with little purple bits. I am so used to black that I found this very novel.
If there was a cheaper mascara in this exact shade (and it's quite a deep purple, not a bright one) then I'd buy that. If there isn't, I shall have to buy this again when it runs out.

He's just infinitely stylish. Only gay men seem to look so good.
So, what's the new pong like then? I am here to tell you it's divine. DIVINE. So sexy and fresh. It's definitely more of a masculine but women could wear it. I have been sniffing the back of my hand all day long. It's ruinously expensive though - well north of £100. I resisted. For now.
