Aveda have launched the Passion Flower Collection, a limited-edition, petal-inspired makeup collection comprising: three nourish-mint smoothing lip colours, three nourish-mint rehydrating lip glazes, two nourish-mint lip liners, and six petal essence single eye colours.
The shades pack a greater punch than you would expect from the botanically-based formulas, and ultimately deliver a pleasant surprise when it comes to the end result.
I’ve been wearing one of the three nourish-mint smoothing lip colours which promises to smooth the appearance of fine lines and increase moisture. Sounds good to me…
In the bullet, Rare Orchid is a dark, blackened plum/cherry shade, I’d class it as equidistant between red and plum… but in the swatch and on my unpigmented lips, the plum is far more apparent, with more than just a nod to some violet-infusion which delivers a seasonal, vampy look.
The texture is not quite balmy but definitely softer than the average lipstick, pigmentation is buildable and I went all out for the swatch photo, you won’t build more colour than this – but I doubt you’d need to.
The packaging… is not to my tastes. I don’t care if it’s environmentally-friendly… well, I do – but c’mon, does it have to be so bloody ugly? The shades and pigmentation blow my preconceptions out of the water so it’s a shame that the packaging didn’t do the same. I know it’s not a biggie, but it’s something that detracts from the overall look and feel of the product, for me.
Another thing that I’m sure many won’t be keen on is the taste and scent of the lipstick. In a word, mint. It’s a little tingly upon application – there goes those fine lines it promises to smooth – and the taste does linger on your lips for a while. I actually really like it, but I think opinion would be quite divided and it’s definitely something you need to be aware of before walking away from your nearest Aveda salon clutching it in your hot little hands.
The Passion Flower Collection is available in Aveda salons, spas, stores and on www.aveda.co.uk now, the Rare Orchid Smoothing Lip Colour is priced at £12.50
If there’s one face in the over-populated world of celebdom who should know a thing or two about perfecting a great red lip, it’s Ms. Dita von Teese. The American burlesque dancer, model and actress has made the red lip look her calling card over the years, always immaculate and always on the pin-up side of glam. Who else would you trust with a fabulous retro red lip?
Well, that’s obviously what German cosmetics brand Artdeco thought to themselves when they collaborated with the dancer to create the Dita von Teese Classics Art Deco collection. Of course, my little heart went all a-pitter-patter at the thought of the potential red lipsticks… and I have one to show you today…
This is #615, the Dita Von Teese Art Couture Lipstick in Muse Red.
I have to say, that if I have one major disappointment about this line… it’s the packaging. There’s nothing wrong with it but it just feels a little like a missed opportunity to play up to Dita’s vintage styling, I know that when all is said and done, I’d be moaning far more if the contents of the packaging didn’t align themselves in a Dita-esque manner… but, I fancied a nit-pick. Think Besame with a modern-twist… now that would have been something no?
But as things stand, the packaging is simple, elegant and understated – the only real nod to the co-collaborator comes in the form of a signature and a cameo-esque etching, it’s cute enough.
You can see from this photo (hopefully) that #415, 1 of 6 dita-inspired lipsticks, is a warm-toned orange red… not my most favourite reds to wear simply because of my uber-cool toned colouring but to my mind, the most authentically retro-looking of the lot. The lipliner that you see peeking in the background is also part of the collection and is a much cooler-toned red (#10 Dame) – it works “ok” with the lipstick but it isn’t a perfect match and if you were looking to buy the two together, I’d say look elsewhere for a warm-toned lip liner.
Moans aside, the formula of the lipstick is a delight. It’s firm enough to give you enough confidence that you’re not going to end up with colour transfer over your teeth (and I didn’t, at all – despite my BIG front teeth which always get in the way), but soft enough to apply without dragging too reluctantly over your lips. It strikes a really good balance for a bold lip colour, and formula really is all important when you’re braving a lip colour with such potential to show you up or let you down.
The lip swatches show the colour with lip-liner underneath to help create sharp-edged definition but in all honesty, I think that this lipstick is “man” enough (last of the great feminists me!) to hold a decent edge by itself. Obviously, for optimum definition it’s always best to line the contours first but most of the time, if I am using a lip-liner, I actually do it to extend the edge of my lips just at the outer corners where 10 years of smoking contributed to a loss of fullness – maybe I’ll take some photos of how I do that sometime if anyone’s interested?
It’s always hard when writing a red lip series post to perfectly demonstrate the tone of a red lipstick compared to others in the genre, so I’ve decided to start swatching them alongside MAC’s Russian Red, commonly thought of as a pretty good example of a neutral red – meaning that it leans neither too blue, nor too orange. I hope it will be helpful. Either way, as you can see – in the swatch below, Dita’s Muse Red is comparatively orange-toned when compared to the MAC neutral (it’s also much less draggy!)
Considering there was much room for disappointment (you don’t put out a “Dita von Teese” red lipstick without expecting it to be scrutinised!), #415 is a lovely, retro red that offers good, nay, great longevity… authentic colour and a lip-friendly formula. What else do you need?
Acqua Di Parma’s Iris Nobile was my first encounter with a high-end perfume and also, my first experience of the brand. It was love at first sniff after a kindly lady working on the counters at House of Fraser saw me looking with an air of confuzzlement at the range before offering me a tester strip and a spritz. She explained that it was her favourite from the line, that she hadn’t been working there very long and was still familiarising herself with the range. That chink of vulnerability was all I needed to feel less of a fragrance-idiot and gave me enough confidence to ask her if she’d mind sharing what she knew, knowing that I was less likely to be overwhelmed with a barrage of information that my under-developed beauty brain would be unable to cope with.
I actually ended up walking away with a bottle of Colonia, because it was summertime and I knew that Mr. L would enjoy wearing it aswell. Iris Nobile, henceforth became known (to me) as the one that got away.
Roll on a couple of summers and I discover that Acqua di Parma have released a flanker for the original Iris Nobile, Iris Nobile Sublime – well, as if the first one wasn’t sublime enough…
Iris Nobile Sublime takes up where the original left off, oozing refinement and class from the moment you lift the bottle from the packaging. Despite the promise of mandarin and Italian bergamot, to me, it opens with a resolute hit of warm florals actually quite unlike the fresh, almost icy openings I remember from Prada’s Infusion d’Iris and Narciso Rodriguez’s Essence in Color – two iris scents that I appreciate but cannot quite fall in love with. Iris Nobile Sublime is simply more inviting, more enticing and more sensual from the off.
Iris Nobile Sublime is an unashamedly feminine affair, brimming with smarts and confidence but elegantly keeping it on the down-low because, after all, no-one likes a show off. She asserts no blousiness or arrogance, just a seemingly everlasting sense of suave, balance and harmony. Iris Nobile Sublime is not a rollercoaster of a scent, you’ll know whether you’ll love it or leave it from your first impression, and be sure to trust in those impressions because this is a sure cert for many who have outgrown their love affairs with the candy popsicle scents of youth and are looking for a true signature scent.
As to the question that I asked myself when I first heard about the launch… “How does this differ from the original Iris Nobile?” I still haven’t been able to answer it to my satisfaction… I also haven’t been able to get to a counter to remind myself of the original but if my instincts and memory serve me correctly, I’m feeling more femininity and powder from this one, a little less woods and musk and perhaps a little more respectful deference to the pretty purple floral itself. My favourite fragrance release of the year so far.
Acqua di Parma Iris Nobile Sublime EdP is available to buy now on counter and online at John Lewis, priced at £82 for 75ml – it’s also currently available online at Escentual.com, priced at a slightly less painful £73.80 for 75ml.
I know it can be a bit annoying when bloggers feature products that you can’t get your hands on anymore but the thing is, I don’t think I’ve ever told you about one of my favourite lipsticks EVER, have I? Well, now’s the time to introduce you because I’ve just broken into my backup.
Now, according to Makeup Alley, Giorgio Armani Sheer Lipstick (#18) was a limited edition release for Autumn 2003! Am I really that old that I was buying grown-up lipsticks THAT long ago? Really, really?! I thought it was more recent than that… but I can’t honestly remember. What I can remember is how I fell in love with the shade in the tube. And then fell in love even more when I applied it.
You see, I haven’t always loved bright lip colours… I’ve grown to love them, but I used to only wear sheer, slightly glossy shades. As I twisted up the new, pristine Armani bullet the other day – I decided that I had to pay homage to this one before it went the same way as some of my other previous lipstick loves (YSL Rouge Pure Shine also had one that I used to live in (now long gone *sob*)).
Ain’t she pretty? She’s much brighter and more popsicle orange in the tube than she is on the lips, I was a little bit intimidated by her at first but we soon became inseperable! One of the things I liked most about this lipstick was the texture, which isn’t too soft, almost semi-matte without being at all drying on the lips. Wear isn’t great but it’s such aneasylipstick to topup that it truly doesn’t matter.
Gah, I’ll miss you when you’re gone!
Can you remember your first lipstick love? Tell me about it!
I’m not the world’s most patriotic type, I’m more into grumbling about our nation than celebrating it, which I realise makes me sound like a bit of a miserable git but it’s not like that – well, not entirely anyway. However, you can’t help but have been a little soul-stirred into some imaginary flag-waving this Summer with the close of our rather successful ‘limpics.
And judging by Alesha Dixon’s brit-inspired limited edition nail shades for Avon, she felt the same way.
Red Reveal and Inky Blue are the two latest inclusions to the Avon line of nailwear pro+ shades. The Avon Beauty and Empowement Ambassador said of these two shades:
Everything British is a hot topic for me right now, what with the Jubilee, the Olympics and of course my first year on Britain’s Got Talent! I’ve always been proud to be British, so when hand picking my own fabulous limited edition Nailwear Pro+ colours there was no contest to these gorgeous red and blue shades.
Here they are swatched, with a sprinkling of totally-in-context gold (29 medals baby!) just for good measure.
The gold glitter, incase you’re wondering, is the lovely I Herd That* from China Glaze On Safari (Autumn 2012) collection.
Avon Nailwear Pro+ Alesha’s Limited Edition shades of Inky Blue* and Red Reveal* are available to buy online at Avonshop or from your local representative, currently priced at £3.50 each.
…but most of the time, I take the photos – write the post, upload the photos, think “job done”, click preview and then wonder why the hell I bothered. Today is one of those days.
I would blame the camera, the lighting, the mis-calibration of your monitor… but the truth is, my face absorbs colour. Unless of course, I wear a shade from one of my Sleek palettes which seem to encourage my chemistry to saturate the colour to the max, turning me into some kind of deformed caricature of myself.
Grumbles aside, and seeing as this was intended to be a FOTD post, I’d better get on and list the products just as I would for any other FOTD post… who cares if you can’t actually see them right?
Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer #2
MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NW15
Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer in SX03
Trish McEvoy Golden Bronzer*
Trish McEvoy Glaze Eyeshadow in Rose Quartz
Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara
Estee Lauder Intense Kajal Eye Crayon in 01 Dramatic Black*
Clinique Chubby Stick in Oversized Orange*
I’m liking the MAC Studio Fix more than I thought. It’s a little drying and perhaps a touch too matte for me but I mix in some Fluid Sheer to give it a boost of luminescence and I’m quite enjoying it. The Kevyn Aucoin SSE is starting to work for me now that I’m using it to conceal rather than as a fuller-coverage foundation – though I am still determined to work out how to get full-face coverage from it. I received the Trish McEvoy Golden Bronzer last year and it’s a sheerer formula which is quite forgiving despite my pale skintone, it has a subtle sparkle and is quite buildable. I’m not the best at applying/blending bronzer though… consider me still a bit of a bronzer noob.
The eyes were the most disappointing aspect of today’s look. The Trish McEvoy shadow I bought for my palette, although a beautiful colour didn’t create much impact – which to be honest, is fair enough – it is intended to be a sheer wash of beautiful rosy taupe… nothing too dramatic, it’s my fault for not bothering with a contour. I’m sitting on the fence when it comes to the MUFE Smoky Lash mascara, I know that many of you swear by it and although it’s certainly quite impressive at creating some drama, I feel that it’s a little prone to clumping and I don’t like the way it makes my lashes feel. Finally, the Estee Lauder Intense Kajal Eye Crayon in 01 Dramatic Black seemed to look more ‘dramatic plum’ on my waterline… perhaps it’s those sleepless nights finally showing through!
The one component of today’s FOTD that I thought I’d be indifferent about (sheer lip colours – “meh”), I ended up really liking. The Clinique Chubby Stick is such a nice formula to wear and for me to reach for it, well… perhaps I was feeling more ‘subtle’ than I was letting-on! You won’t see a huge amount of colour with this range but the Oversized Orange gives my lips a nice polish and a hint of warmth.
What’s your favourite product that you’re sporting today?
You’re gonna have to excuse the late-night point & shoot pictures, these were taken at around 11pm and I’d just dragged my tired bum through the door after spending an evening at Selfridges enjoying an Armani masterclass with Cesar Santos, one of Armani’s International Face Designers. I’d already managed to eat my lipstick and gloss off whilst on the train home, so what remains in the photo below is a five-hour old base which my dry skin instantly fell in love with (Luminous Silk 4.5), some phenomenal mascara (Eyes to Kill (VexInTheCity, you were right)), and one of the new Eyes To Kill eyeshadows (#24 – RougeDeluxe has more info on them here).
There was also a blush (blushing fabric #1) which the camera has failed to capture. I’m sad that I ate the lipstick off, it was probably the best warm pink I’ve ever worn for not looking clashy against my skin. Don’t comment on my brows, I would say that I’m “growing them out” or something bloggery like that, but I’m not… I’m just too idle to phone my threading lady and my fringe does a great job at hiding them. Usually.
How about that mascara huh?
Cesar Santos usually resides on the Giorgio Armani counter at Harvey Nichols, London. You need to track down this man, seriously. He’s ridiculously easy to talk to, completely non-judgemental when admitting your makeup crimes, and did not put a single foot wrong when selecting shades that complemented both my skintone AND my hair. Basically, if ever there were a case for human cloning (especially if we could turn them into our makeup minions)… Cesar is it.
As the summer approaches, my thoughts turn to bullet-proofing my makeup to last the course of a hot, tiring day. I don’t know about you but despite my dry skin, the first to make a dash for freedom is any and all makeup down the bridge of my nose. Then my eyeliner melts into my tear ducts, developing into hugely attractive eye bogies before the last of my foundation gives up the ghost and literally puddles in the area where my nose meets my face (hello face). If it’s really hot, my eyeliner will also strive for symmetry and create matching lines across my upper eyelid where the “hoods” rest gently on the lash-line. It’s a beautiful sight to behold.
Bobbi Brown’s newLong-Wear Eye Collection promises to stay the distance without letting you down or showing you up. The eye pencils from the new collection are richly-coloured and deeply-pigmented. They’re creamy and have that soft, gel formula reminiscent of my belovedAvon Mega Impact/Supershock Gel Eyeliner (whatever they’re bleedin’ being called at the moment).
The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eye Pencils* are available in six shades: Jet, Mahogany, Black Navy, Black Plum, Hunter and Smoke, providing a colour option whatever your personal taste. I really like an off-black range that carries the density of an inky black but without the harshness on maturing features. Not that my features are maturing, shutup.
These pencils haven’t given me any trouble sharpening, the uber-softness of the Avon ones means that I do need to chill them in the fridge for half an hour prior to sharpening, total pain when you need a pencil stat. I didn’t have to do this with the Bobbi Brown pencils.
Mahogany is swatched on the left, Smoke on the Right. You can see the density of pigment is really quite impressive. It’s a teeny bit less pigmented than the Avon offerings (which are insanely pigmented) but as I said earlier, they do provide a little more precision during application thanks to a firmer texture.
Here are the same swatches after scrubbing the back of my hand with soap and water for a good 30/40 seconds. I was impressed that they didn’t smear or transfer as I swiped and rubbed. You can see that the pigment has eroded in places but if you imagine that swatch as drawn across your lash-line, I think you’d be fairly happy to emerge from the swimming pool 3-hours later with that much still intact no?
Unfortunately, whilst I think these pencils are brilliant. This is where the praise ends.
I’ve been comparing these all along to the Avon SuperShock Gel Eyeliner pencils (which don’t come in as many shades admittedly) simply because the Avon ones are my benchmark and indeed, my daily staples. As I swatched both alongside one another, I expected the Bobbi Brown ones to outlast the Avon. They don’t. They wear identically both on the back of my hand and on my waterline, around 5 hours.
The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eye Pencils are priced at £17 each. The Avon SuperShock Gel Eyeliner pencils are currently priced at £4 each. And there’s the rub, I’m not going to recommend that you spend extra money needlessly… both are fabulous long-wearing, densely pigmented pencil liners. The Avon ones are substantially cheaper.
The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eye Pencils are available to buy on counter and online from BobbiBrown.co.uk

I’ve been trying out the ADesign Skincare Brush Set for just over a month now, and I wanted to see if this one set could ever possibly replace the various skin brushes that I’ve grown to love over the years. I have to say, the set did fare better than I thought it would… but the ultimate answer is that nothing can replace many years of replacing rubbish brushes with marginally better ones until you reach brush nirvana!
But let me talk you through the brushes contained in the ADesign Skincare Brush Set*, with particular reference to my. new. favourite. brush.
I’ll begin by giving you a quick overview of the set, which is available to buy online from Cocktail Cosmetics, priced at £44.95. Broken down, that works out at around £8.99 per brush – which for face brushes, makes it a very good value set. You’d easily pay that on the high street for brushes that don’t come close to even 10% of the quality that these represent.
For your money, you get five brushes housed in a patent mock-croc bag that is fully-lined to prevent damage from spills. The brushes (from left to right) are: Pointed Foundation Kabuki Brush, Flat Top Foundation Brush, Foundation Brush, Medium Concealer Brush, and Pointed Concealer Brush.
You may be asking yourself, why on Earth would you need three different foundation brushes? If you are, get off my blog.
Yes. It’s magnificent isn’t it? Like a silver bullet sent to banish bad makeup application werewolves (or something *shrugs*). I haven’t quite got the hang of how best to use the Adesign Pointed Foundation Kabuki Brush and I’m not keen on the stubby kabuki-handle – the pointed tip is obviously engineered to provide precision and having a longer-handle would complement this more effectively. Of course, if you love the design, you could always opt for something like the Bdellium Tools Bambu Pointed Foundation Brush as an alternative.
The heavily tapered bristles on this brush allows for dual-motion blending… you can swipe both back and forward like a traditional painting motion or apply circular buffing strokes. For me, I’ve found its forte when it comes to applying concealer over a larger area, particularly around the nose as the point gets right into the creases whilst the taper blends the edges seamlessly. I’m not completely sold on it, but I do think I’ve not quite mastered the best technique for it yet. If you have any suggestions, I’m all ears!
The Adesign Flat Top Foundation Brush, a.k.a. my new favourite brush. It’s a masterpiece, so beautifully dense with tickle-me soft fibres. It is not very pliable which allows for a really good buffing motion (rather than flopping about ineffectively on the face) and comes with a small head which I much prefer when compared to a larger size flat-top such as the ELF Powder Brush. I’m going to photograph comparable brushes shortly and reiterate why I prefer this brush to the others. For quick reference, comparable brushes would be: MAC 130 and Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush (though this one isn’t cut at an angle).
I’ve been using this for applying foundation (all textures), applying cream blush and blending out any edges. When my skin has been particularly dry and all my products have been cream or liquid-based, I haven’t even bothered to use a different brush. This is the stand-out offering from the set. The smaller head also means that it complements my stick products really well (things like NARS Multiples and my Shu Uemura Stick Foundation). Perhaps the ultimate compliment I can pay it though is that it has enabled me to wear my MUFE HD Cream Blushes… those things played me up something chronic, I just couldn’t find the right tool to get the just-flushed blush from them. Until now.
I wish that I could point to a single technical aspect of this brush that suits my needs so well, but all I can tell you is that I’m in brush love. For reals.
After the gushing over the previous brush, the Adesign Foundation Brush doesn’t get me nearly as excited. Again, this is small-headed… comparable in size to the Giorgio Armani Designer Foundation Expert Shaping Brush but mega-bucks cheaper. While the GA brush tapers away quickly, the ADesign brush provides greater density from the base up, which allows this brush to both paint and buff. The fibres have a good amount of spring to them and are densely packed from root to tip.
TheAdesign Medium Concealer Brush is another that didn’t give me an awful lot to flap about. Again, it’s a good-looking brush without any flaws and applies under-eye concealer very gently but one the whole, I prefer my No7 Concealer brush when it comes to painting on the product with a flat edge like this offers. But talking of flat edges…
…the Adesign Pointed Concealer Brush is without them! This is a really good brush for concealing over blemishes. It delivers the product with pin-point precision and blends without dislodging or removing any of the product you’ve just placed! How many times have you applied concealer to a spot, blended and then realised that you’ve blended at least 50% of the product off?! This has worked wonders for my concealer application skillz… now I has some! Again, this is so densely packed, you would think you’d need something with a ‘lighter’ touch, but no… despite my initial scepticism, this really does the job magnificently well. It’s a little too stiff-feeling to use in the delicate eye area, where something like a MAC 224 works well to both apply and blend concealer.
Without exception, each of these synthetic-fibre brushes are high-quality. The ferrules are solid, the fibres are well-cut and dense. Each is perfectly soft, washes well and keeps its shape as it dries. Talking of drying, these do dry more slowly than natural hair fibres…. such is the downside to synthetic brushes but I haven’t experienced any shedding during washing or application at all. Which is more than can be said for most brushes. Whilst I haven’t fallen head-over-heels for every brush in the set, the two that have made an impression on me (Flat Top Foundation & Pointed Concealer) … have made an impression that I want to shout about.
As an aside, you may be wondering why this is called the ‘skincare’ set… well, if you watch the video below, you’ll see that this set was designed for both makeup application AND skincare application. Call me old-school but I’m all about the fingers when it comes to skincare!
I had a little shop-my-stash session and pulled out some things that haven’t seen as much love recently as they should, namely my Face Atelier foundation which is a touch too silicone-heavy for my skin when it’s at its driest in the Winter. My skin is back in a good place at the moment and I couldn’t wait to see if I still loved it as much as I did last Summer when I bought it. The answer is a resounding YES! I’ll do a proper review with before/after shots later in the week, kick me if I don’t ‘cos it makes a great spring/summer foundation for those who aren’t ready to give up ‘propah’ coverage just yet.
My NARS Lhasa got some extra love with a sparkly pairing courtesy of Avon’s Glimmerstick Diamonds Eye Liner in Sugar Plum – it’s a nice way to supercharge a much-loved taupe with a bit of additional colour. My beautiful Maison Lancome blush* is still pleasing me muchly, especially if I give the brush a good swirl in the darker shades first before building up a little more luminosity courtesy of the pale pink.
Hmm, what else…
Ahh, a Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Ryo Pinko! I wasn’t sure if this would still be usable… it’s been a while! However, it smells and tastes perfectly fine, it’s not quite ready for the cosmetics graveyard just yet! I love the colour and the metallic finish is a little bit retro (in a good way!). It inspired me to give today’s FOTD a silly little name though, so it’s all good.
Finally, I layered up two mascaras that I’ve recently been sent and got some epic lashes as a result, I’ll blog them as part of my mascara series shortly. The Clinique Lash Power Mascara* has a small brush that works well at getting product right into the roots of the lashes before a coat of Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara* ontop sends them skyward.
What’s on your fizzog today and when was the last time you shopped your stash for some forgotten treasures?
From pale to dark, teal is the perfect blue/green combination and it’s everywhere this season. I thought I’d swatch the cream teal nail polishes in my collection to give you some alternatives to Estee Lauder’s Teal Topaz spring sell-out polish.
