The small things…

Just a few products that have been making me very happy recently…
1. The Rouge Bunny Rouge Shimmering Luxe Balm. This looks like your average lipstick, but it is THE most moisturising lip balm I have ever tried! It is completely addictive so I find myself re-applying it throughout the day. The packaging is gorgeous and feels very expensive! I highly recommend this – it’s unlike anything I’ve ever tried. It also leaves you with a very subtle shimmer, which looks really lovely. 
2. Soleil Tan de Chanel. I have always seen people talking about this on YouTube and Blogs, but have never really got the point of it. I recently had some time waiting around in Selfridges, so I thought I’d go to the Chanel counter for a chat (my favourite thing to do). The nice lady tried this on me, so I could get a feel for what it is like. It’s basically a cream, but it is quite solid and doesn’t move when you tip the pot upside down. She was adamant that the best way to apply it is to scoop a bit onto your hand and then with a kabuki brush, warm it up on your hand, then apply all over the face. This isn’t realistic for me and also wastes a lot of product, so I just swish a brush around in the pot. It only comes in one colour; but it really does suit any skin tone and leaves you with a gorgeous summer glow. The texture is really soft and easy to blend. The packaging…well it’s Chanel, of course it is amazing! 
3. Korres Pomegranate Lip Butter. After seeing this on Lisa Eldridge’s channel, I desperately wanted to try it. It is the perfect subtle colour for a summer makeup look. I looked absolutely everywhere for it and it was impossible to find. I eventually found Korres at Debenham’s, but they were sold out of the Pomegranate. Then, completely by chance I found it in Oliver Bonas! I’m loving it, the colour really suits me! 
4. Diptyque L’Ombre Dans L’Eau. This was a present from my boyfriend. I tried all the Diptyque scents and I thought this one is perfect for the Summer. I love it and wear it everyday! Diptyque is such a beautiful brand; I have some of their candles and they don’t compare to any other brand. The perfume smells so natural that I could never go back to the commercial, chemical smelling scents. 
I hope you all had a great weekend!
