Manicure Monday with Dior & Mavala

Today for manicure monday I decided to use Dior’s cosmopolite 785 for my base coat and mavala’s glam show 359 to add a touch of sparkle.

I love both these brands, Dior for obvious reasons, when my nails are short theirs nothing like a luxury polish to instantly make you feel better.

I took 2 pictures, one in direct sunlight and the other indoors, the featured image is outdoors.

Gucci Bamboo Perfume

_20160213_150850This is my current favorite perfume at the moment, Gucci Bamboo EDP.

I think perfume is a very individual choice as we all know fragrance reacts differently on each other’s skin.

This is how it’s described,

Gucci Bamboo emanates the Gucci woman’s diverse sides: her femininity, confidence, savvy and strength. The fragrance represents her essence. Soft and intense at once, Gucci Bamboo’s sensorial composition draws its inspiration from the Gucci woman’s harmonious dichotomy. Natural and resonant ingredients create a captivating olfactory story. Woody and warm notes vibrate through the heart and base. Deep Sandalwood, heady Tahitian vanilla and unique grey amber accords strike a complementary contrast with the inherent femininity found in exotic floral notes of soft casablanca lily, feminine orange blossom and delicate ylang ylang.

Personally i’m never able to identify scents by the notes that are in them. I just know if I like the perfume or not. This one I like, It’s a fresh fragrance and it doesn’t smell very “woodsy”. I also don’t smell any vanilla. However, i can say that it’s a long lasting perfume, and also the roller ball is my absolute favorite, it goes everywhere and fit’s in any size bag, and if more perfume houses made fragrance pens I’m pretty certain I’d buy them all.

I received the gift set with the body lotion also, which is a bonus as I love to use body lotion in the summer.

I have Brows 😊

_20160203_132145 Eye Brows, I certainly wasn’t blessed with great brows they are really fair and with my illness they can fall out, so trying to find a brow product that looks natural and doesn’t take longer than the rest of my makeup had been a struggle.

After just one application from a benebabe in fraser’s just before Christmas. I have found the one Benefits Gimme Brow ! In two minutes I had Brows, it really is incredible.

 How does it work?

It is a brush-on fiber gel and it adheres to the skin and hair creating fuller, natural looking brows. It is definitely the most natural looking product I have tried and it is easy to use & if I can apply it when my hands are bad then anyone can.

The wand is really small, so you have more control than you would with other brow gels – it is foolproof! Even if you have the lightest hair and ‘invisible brows’, you will be amazed with the results, as the gel adheres to the shortest hair and adds length, volume and colour.

I don’t have to worry about messing up my eyebrows anymore, because I simply brush through them with the bristles and I am done! . You can make your brows as full as you wish with Gimme Brow, starting with a very natural look, or building it up for a bold effect if that’s what you prefer.

The lasting power is great and once on, the product stays in place all day, without flaking or smudging.

There are two shades available: Light/Medium and Medium/Deep.

I am really impressed with Benefit’s Gimme Brow and I have been using it every single day,  The fact that I have been wearing it on ‘no makeup’ days means that I might be obsessed with actually having brows. 

The price is £18.50 for 0.3g.  I think if you had the same brow problem as myself the price might put you off, I suggest going into a benefit counter & get one of the bene-babes to apply it for you like I did, ( best thing I done )  The benebabes in Frasers Glasgow Store are just lovely.

I just wish I’d starting using it earlier, I wouldn’t have wasted money on lots of products.

What are you loving just now.
