MY SIGNATURE ROUGE | CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN




Hi Guys, hoping you are all well and settling into 2016 nicely ;) My latest obsession is a Red Lip and I made an expensive purchase during the Christmas holiday. Whilst in Harrods I came across the Christian Louboutin lipsticks.  All I could say was WOW I was  literally lost for words when I saw them. As you know I am a certified Makeup Artist/ makeup obsessive. Visiting this concession was more than a dangerous place for me. 

Firstly the packaging was out of this world, the lipstick is like a bullet shaped medallion with a ribbon so you can wear it as a necklace. The weight of this lippy is like holding gold, no expense spared on this bad boy. The golden bullet is then laid into a beautifully cushioned jewellery box, which slots into a larger gift box big enough to fit a pair of Pigalle's 110mm!

The colour selection is suprisingly varied with 38 in the collection. All were completely on trend with 3 finishes to choose from- Silky satin, a highly pigmented velvet matt and a gauzy sheer voile -  from the signature Rouge Louboutin through Diva, Miss Loubi and Very PrivĂ© that all take their inspiration from the brand’s shoes and handbags.


Sadly all the Louboutin Signature Rouge's were out of stock but I couldn't go home without one. My hunt began with the gorgeous Harrods sales assistant attending to my every need. I set my eyes on Torerra a silky satin. A bright yet deep silky red, the formula for this lipstick is the creamiest formula I have ever felt. So smooth easy to apply, the pigmentation is so strong you barely have to put any on. The staying power is ridiculous, I have worn this lipstick for 8 hours without needing to reapply. At £60 each I unfortunately think its worth every penny. Every girl needs at least one in their life time. I love Mac lipsticks and you can't faulty them but since owning a Louboutin lipstick I no longer hold Mac lipsticks on a pedestal. 

Sending love & Full lips to everybody

NEW YEAR'S EVE| WELCOME TO 2016


Hi Guys!
Sorry for the lack of posting recently it has been such a busy time over the holiday period with Christmas and New year. I hope you all had tons of fun and have celebrated the new year in with lots of memories! We will be working on making some improvements to the blog to be able to share more of our fashion/ make up favourites and lifestyle loves far more frequently. So watch this space!

This Christmas was the same as usual for me, spent with my immediate family mum, dad and two sisters. Although I did see christmas in with a few of my lovely friends which was a first to going out christmas eve and I think will now be an annual thing! The planning for new year's eve this year was taken very seriously! I'm sure you can all relate to having disappointing celebrations in the past so it was decided that we plan ahead. We chose to have dinner at Roka, Mayfair one of my favourite restaurants, one of the best Japanese restaurants in London in my opinion. If you haven't tried I would definitely recommend. For afterwards we had pre bought tickets to an event called Love Juice at M hotel, Threadneedle street. This was a fun night out although I would have preferred if the space wasn't divided into two rooms playing separate music. The upstairs was a beautiful open space with a stunning staircase in the middle taking the centre piece, while downstairs was an odd area with a box room and carpet. For a moment we were downstairs when we suddenly realised the time was 23:58 we bolted up the stairs to make the countdown just on time! 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope  you all have a fantastic 2016 filed with health, wealth, love and wisdom! 



 For my outfit I decided to go with full on sparkle to match the occasion, I particularly loved this dress as it has shoulder pads to create a much more structured silhouette with a complimentary plunge neckline to add some extra sex appeal!



For my hair I kept it simple with just a straight blow-dry and my makeup I tried a bronze and gold shadow with my new favoutite lip colours by Mac. The whirl lipliner and lipstick.


Thank you for reading!
