Bobbi Brown Smokey Nudes collection

Hi everyone, here is another guest review from my sister Sophie on the new Smokey Nudes collection from Bobbi Brown! I am massive fans of nude shades so can't wait to get my hands on these! 

 If there’s one beauty brand I love to use it's Bobbi Brown, any major event - my wedding day, bridesmaid duties out comes every Bobbi Brown product I have. On a daily basis I wouldn't leave the house without a quick sweep on each cheek from my shimmer brick! Although Bobbi Brown tends to have quite a neutral colour palette anyway their new Smokey Nudes collection has more must have products for everyday to evening use.

The collection is made up of just three new limited edition products with varying shades all absolutely perfect for coming in the Autumn & Winter months. Including a new Shimmer Brick, eye palette & four beautifully creamy matte lipsticks.

I have two top favourite Bobbi Brown Lip products that I use - the first is a lip shine treatment (lipstick) in sunset beach and the second is a lip crayon in dusty nude. These are always my go to lip products and I have always had such great compliments when using them, so I had quite a lot of expectation for the new lip sticks. Also I must admit that I'm not a great fan of matte lipsticks - I often find if I'm suffering from dry lips (especially in the winter) a matte lipstick highlights your dry lips. 

So I am very pleased to say that on first applying the lipstick it does exactly what it says on the tin- it has lovely creamy, soft texture to it that you can feel moisturising your lips when wearing. The colour is subtle so I did require two applications to begin with but longevity wise this lasted all through my morning and simply needed a quick top up after lunch. 

My beautiful sister :)

The new colours include Nude, Soft Nude, Pink Nude and Warm Nude – I’m wearing Warm Nude, which along with Nude is a slightly browner based colour the Pink Nude & Soft Nude are slightly pinker based. My look yesterday was quite minimal with a simply eyeliner flick and mascara for my eyes and I think the lipstick compliment the look really well - I honestly think you could wear with any look and will definitely be making its way into my daily make up bag!

Garnier Ultimate Blends & The Saturdays Greatest Hits tour in Bournemouth

Guest review from my lovely sister Sophie's VIP experience with Garnier, where she was backstage at the Saturdays Greatest Hits tour in Bournemouth!

I was lucky enough to get invited for a VIP experience with Garnier Ultimate Blends & The Saturdays Greatest Hits tour in Bournemouth. The girls each have their own range in the Ultimate Blends collection to treat different types of hair from colour protection to a sleek restorer, with shampoos, conditioners and treatments in each individual range.

The evening started with a backstage hair styling session from the Garnier Ultimate Blends backstage team. We both went for some lovely curls with my hair pinned up at the back into a lovely design and my cousin Emily's pushed to the side with the curls falling down loose. We were both so happy with our hair styles and even got a compliment from Molly & Una when we were lucky enough to meet them for a quick photo.

The products were all displayed backstage so we could have a look at each range and we also got a signed bag with a Marvellous Glow Oil to try at home. This can be used on wet or dry hair; I decided (on the advice of the Garnier Backstage stylist) to try on dry hair only on my ends and leave for an hour before washing off as an intense treatment. It not only left my hair feeling super soft but really nourished on the ends. This product also protects your hair against heat, just to give keep those ends as healthy as possible. 

As I said we were lucky enough to met the girls for a quick photo before the show, they all looked beautiful with flawless make up and perfectly styled hair. Although we did feel a bit tall in heels next to them (they were in flats before the show as they had to dance in massive high heels for the next hour and a half!) 

The show itself was brilliant with all of the Saturdays hit songs and a few extras thrown in! The stage outfits were great and even Una with her baby bump who looked especially radiant kept up with all the dancing!! Thanks to Harry from Garnier for the invitation, we had a great time!
