Nyx Lip Lingerie Swatches and Review


So I finally got round to swatching the NYX Lip Lingeries that I received at the NYX store opening a couple of months ago. You can read the post about the store opening here. I have created a whole video swatching the 12 shades, but I also wanted to a little review and pictures so you guys can get a clearer overview of the colours and which ones are the best shades for you :) 
  
One thing I have noticed about the shades is that they look very similar, some even identical, when they are in the packaging, but its only when you actually try them on your lips that you can see what the actual colour is. I have brought some Lip Lingeries in the past but I wasn't too impressed with the texture of them, so that was something that was on my mind when testing these ones out. What I realised, and you can see this in the video, is that when the lip colour is too light for me, the product comes out funny.  I don't know how this works, and whether it has anything to do with the colour of your natural lips, but the light pink shades, like Cheekies and Silk Indulgent, were slightly clumpy and actually quite difficult to apply, but the darker shades especially like Scandalous and After Hours went on so smoothly.

Viktor and Rolf Magic Collection Launch Dinner at Harrods



So a couple of weeks ago I got to go to an amazing Dinner at Galvin Demoiselle at the Conservatory in Harrods for the launch of Viktor and Rolf's new Magic Collection! You may have heard of Viktor and Rolf's Flower Bomb perfume as it is so popular, well their new collection of 6 fragrances does not disappoint! Before I arrived at the event, I didn't know much about the new fragrance but I did not expect it to be a whole collection of perfumes. What makes it so amazing is that each fragrance is different, not to each other but to the perfumes available on the market. They have used an array of different raw and natural materials to create deep and sensual smells that last for ages.

The evening itself was a beautiful 3 course meal set up for a handful of bloggers and was a great opportunity for all of us to discuss our favourite smells - I was torn between Lavender Illusion and Dancing Roses, which was strange as I don't normally like Lavender! The table was decorated in gorgeous flowers and the food was so good that I had eaten it before I remembered to take pictures!

I have left a brief description of the fragrances below the pictures of the evening, and they are available exclusively at Harrods for the next six months and would make amazing Eid presents!












DANCING ROSES 
The ravishing queen of perfumery, the rose, is transformed into delectable liquor, thanks to a juicy and fleshy cherry accord.


SAGE SPELL
The authentic signature is created by an absinthe accord at the core combined with sage creating a hot and cold effect.

LIQUID DIAMONDS
Liquid Diamonds indulges the skin with an opulent balance of floral bouquet and white musk.

LAVENDER ILLUSION
Sensual lavender and refreshing citrus caviar accord, create a wave of sensation both hot and cold.

SPARKLING SECRET
The rules of classic cologne are disrupted by introducing an effervescent twist

DIRTY TRICK
Mischievously composed of key accords iris and ink, Dirty Trick beautifully arrests the senses.

Sleek Make Up Distorted Dreams Launch



So Thursday I got invited to the Sleek Make Up Party for their new Distorted Dreams Highlighter launch - it was held in Tape London near Oxford Circus and there was a massive turn out with loads of my fave bloggers there. I've included some pics of the new products and swatches down below; the highlighting palette is so different to any I have seen before so I'm super excited to try it! It will be launching on 31st May and there are 5 gorgeous shades to choose from! I thought I'd share some pics of the night with you all as there was so much going on and they had gone to so much effort to make it an amazing launch!

Make-Up Haul

So today was a bit of a lazy day, and I decided to unbox a few packages I received over the last couple of weeks. I shared swathes and images over on Insta-Stories and it seemed like such a shame as insta-stories only last 24 hours, so I thought I'll share the images on here too :) I haven't had a chance to thoroughly try any of them, so if you would like full reviews then just let me know :)

Dining in the Sky - Bloggers breakfast at Duck and Waffle


So last week the lovely ladies from Love to Dress treated a handful of bloggers to breakfast at Duck and Waffle. Before I go ahead a do a review of this place for you all, I need to say a massive thanks to Asma and Sumaya. As a blogger I am lucky enough to attend a lot of different events, but this was one of the best – simply because these ladies are so funny! They are so down to earth and my jaw was literally hurting from laughter at the end of the breakfast. I will post pictures of my LTD outfit soon on my instagram so keep an eye out for that :)
