Guerlain is a relatively new brand for me but it's one that I've completely fallen in love with both for their make up and skincare. Their most recently launch is La Petite Robe Noire, which consists of 20 lipstick shades, 8 nail shades and a stunning new fragrance. Firstly the packaging of all the products is so beautiful and references the upside down heart from the original Guerlain perfume.

The fragrance is what I would describe as a beautiful date night fragrance and perfect for both summer and winter. It contains a blend of black cherry, black rose, patchouli and black tea balanced out with almond and tonka bean for a real smokey and fruity finish.

The new lipsticks are a blend of 3 different textures in a really extensive range of shades. They're really buildable so you can either wear them as a wash of colour or apply a few layers for a really intense look. They're also scented with a fruity floral scent taken from the heart of the La Petite Robe Noire scent, so everything from the range is intertwined. Then finally the finish is ultra-shiny, which makes a nice change from really matte lipsticks and perfect for this cold weather!

Finally are the La Petite Robe Noire nail polishes that come in a range of different shades from pale pink to deep black. The finish on these is super shiny and thick, which is something I always look for in a polish as I like my nails to look like they have shellac on them without having to go through the damage it causes to my nails. The brush is also the perfect size for applying a full nail of polish in one neat swipe, which again is something I always look for so these get a big thumbs up from me!

What are your thoughts on La Petite Robe Noire collection? Isn't it just the cutest thing?!

Red Lip Classic Valentine's Day Tutorial


YouTube: Gemmalondonlife

PRODUCTS:

As you know, I love a good red lip make up look and although predictable I think red lipstick and Valentine's Day are just the perfect pairing which I think anyone can pull off. I more than anyone know that not everyone can wear the same shade of red, for example blue toned reds make my skin tone look completely drained however I find orange and pink based reds really flattering. Along with different shades of red suiting different skin tones, it's also been shown that different shades of red can evoke different physical and emotional responses.

Ebay.co.uk have helped with this post and have provided me with information how about different shades of red can emotionally steer your Valentine's Date. They have teamed up with colour expert Lilian Verner-Bonds to identify the five key shades of red and the individual emotions they evoke. 

- Scarlet Red: The brightest red of all and sparks action and anticipation.
Crimson Red: contains a cool touch of blue and provokes originality and style.
Flame Red: contains tones of yellow and communicates a zest and zeal for life.
Russet Red: a deep red with shades of black and orange and exudes quiet confidence- this would be a good one for first dates.
Maroon Red: an even darker side of red that incites deep thinking and understanding.

What are your plans for Valentine's Day? Are you going for dinner or having a cosy night in with Netflix and a take away?

Clarins Spring Collection

When it comes to Clarins I'm always a big fan of their seasonal releases, especially their Spring collections as the always seem to nail it. Their past Spring releases have embodied blooming flowers and light pinks and this year is no different. I've included all of their latest releases in one post to save you on scrolling time. 

Firstly, let's talk about the new shades they've added to their incredible Joli Rouge Lipstick range. Because of the success of these lipsticks they have added a number of new shades ranging from Cherry Red (featured in this YouTube tutorial) to lilacy pink hues. What I love about these lipsticks is that although they're super hydrating they also last and leave a lovely stain/tint on the lips.

Next is their new Spring Instant Glow Collection, which the name itself just suggests everything you need in a collection. There are 4 new shades of the Rouge Eclat Lipsicks, along with two new shades of the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors (amazing, I know). There's a beautiful mini, super compact eye shadow palette which contains a mix of the most stunning bronzed shades and then also 6 new of their Ombre Iridescent Cream to Powder Shadows. Then finally a new Multi-Blush cream to powder blush in the shade Rose, which seems very fitting. 

Lastly, is something very exciting. As you know from previous posts, I'm a huge fan of the whole Instant Light Lip Perfecting range and Clarins definitely listened to their customers as they've release a new Lip Perfecting Base. This aims to prolong lip products whilst also keeping them in place. I like to use this in the morning before I apply anything to my lips as it acts as a lip balm, hydrating the lips and then also creates a beautiful base for lipsticks.

If ever there was a perfect Spring collection, I think this would it be. The Lancome 'From Lancome with Love' spring collection is a range of stunning pastel shades and insanely cute packaging. Their Miracle Cushion foundation has had a beautiful Parisian illustrated make over with the cutest image of a girl holding pastel shaded balloons. The case is limited edition and just pops right onto the existing Miracle Cushion foundation.

The new limited edition nail shades are a mixture of stunning milky pastel shades, I have the shades 148 which is a milkshake style apricot shade and 153, a deep milky pink shade. There has also been a twist added to the Rouge Love lipsticks with the release of 3 new shades, I have the shade 407 Pastel Tangerine, which is such a pretty coral shade that I just cannot wait to wear with a tan.

Then finally there are 3 new Lip Lover shades, I have 408, which looks almost like a bubble hum pink shade but just adds a lovely baby pink tint to the lips and is super comfortable to wear. 

As I write this post it's finally light in the morning and it's getting me so exciting for Spring! I think my favourite piece from the collection is the limited edition packaging for the Miracle Cushion foundation because it's absolutely stunning and is something that I would want to keep as a collectors item in years to come.

The full collection is available now online starting at £13.50.
