Give me glow, prime and contour! Oh yes! I’m in love with Burberry. Mega love for the brand. Recently I’ve written about the Burberry Essentials and I hope you have a look. Truly incredible pieces that will give glow to your complexion and the perfect lip contour. The Essentials really focuses on using highlights and lowlights and also accentuating certain features.  A Glowing Complexion with BURBERRY ‘The Essentials’ Prime! Contour! Highlight!

The Essentials - Creative Packshot 1

I absolutely love everything about Burberry and two of my favourites are the FRESH GLOW Highlighter in the colour Pink Pearl and the Lip Colour Contour in Medium No.03,  which is a nude pen to prime, contour and shape the lips. 


The Fresh Glow Highlighter is so incredible! It is absolute perfection and I love how it is soft and glows so beautifully. It is not glittery and spreads out evenly and nicely giving a natural highlight and not a streak.


I have the loveliest Lip Colour Contour in Medium No.03. I love this because it is slightly brighter and bolder then my own lip colour which gives my lips definition and shape. It’s a matte finish and you can use this as a lipstick base, outline or all over the lips as a lipstick. The formula is lightweight and soft. It really helps my lips look naturally brighter and fuller. To see all of the shades and more info check out my article:  A Glowing Complexion with BURBERRY ‘The Essentials’ Prime! Contour! Highlight!


Lip Colour Contour - Medium


These two beautiful products are a part of my April favourites 2017 (COMING SOON!).  I absolutely love them. The Fresh Glow really highlights in the most perfect way and the lip colour contour defines and accentuates the lips making them bold and fuller. The formula of both of these are perfection and I highly recommend you check them out. Truly stunning!

Thank you so much to Burberry for the beautiful samples. I’m truly honoured and I absolutely love them!

The Essentials Collection by CLARINS


I’m here to share with you the beautiful: The Essentials Collection. This collection is in collaboration with the PUR PROJECT. “The partnership between Clarins and Pur Projet contributes to the Povos da Floresta reforestation project, which helps to preserve and protect Indian tribes’ rich Amazon ecosystem. With the purchase of this palette, a tree is planted in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest and you are helping to support the Ashaninka Indians.”

The collection consists of a stunning Eye Make-up Palette and Lip Comfort Oil. The eyeshadow palette has lovely scattered annatto flowers all over it. I absolutely love this palette and the formula of the eyeshadows are soft, beautiful and blend nicely. They are creamy and smooth. The entire collection and collaboration with the PUR Project is truly amazing and powerful. I love collaborations that help communities.

“The small tree from tropical America produces pink flowers and red fruit in the form of a heart-shaped pod covered in thorns, containing red seeds. A symbol of power for the American Indians who associated its juice with the concept of eternal life, the annatto was used to dye food, objects and fabrics. In addition, it served as ritual body paint and lipstick, as it still does today in Aztec and Mayan communities.” -Clarins


The ten new eyeshadows are beautiful with rosy shades: fresh pink, grey-violet, taupe, violet grey, plum and black violet with a satin effect, beige, smoky pink, aubergine with a matte finish and a touch of pink diamond.

The Essentials Palette – $62.00

Available at Hudson’s Bay and on Clarins.com


For several years Clarins has worked with Pur Project to support Amazonian Indian Communities and in particular the Ashaninka, to help them maintain their autonomy. This has created strong ties. Today Clarins dedicates its new “The Essentials” 2016 Make-up Collection to these communities, to celebrate this special friendship. A collection with two exclusive editions, The Essentials Eye Make-up Palette and Lip Comfort Oil, enriched with key plant ingredient traditionally used by the Ashaninka as make-up.



I swatched  The Essentials Palette  and it applies nicely. I really love the warm colours and found the formula to apply evenly and smoothly. “The annatto seed is the star ingredient of this winter collection. Present in The Essentials Eye Make-up Palette eyeshadows, it helps provide comfort and in Lip Comfort Oil (red berry shade) it nourishes and comforts the lips. *Not shown in this blog post the Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil $25.00
