Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 22 - 2011

Every new month seems to bring with it innovations in cosmetic technology. Whether it be gadgets, formulations, application methods or even just the latest must-have ingredients… put it this way, there’s never a dull moment!

    great post! i have never tried clarins beauty flash balm but after reading that superdrug do a cheaper alternative called natural high radiance balm i tried that instead. its fab!! leaves skin really soft and smooth, great on its own or under foundation. rrp is £4.99 but its usually on offer though so you get an even better bargain!

  4. That’s so cool! thanks for sharing this. Great post! 😀
