L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Exclusive Eva's Nude

Phew! That's a bit of a mouthful for a lipstick isn't it?

But lookit! Isn't it pretty. I have to be honest I had been completely bypassed the release of the L'Oreal Color Riche Exclusive collection last year. I've been on a bit of a perpetual spending ban for the last year and had been avoiding every make up counter I could so as to prevent frivolous spending. Obviously it hasn't worked 100% but it does mean a few things have skipped my awareness. 


Eva's Nude (Inspired by/Designed for Eva Longoria) was recommended to me by Laura at www.editor-in-chic.com. I had put out a request on Twitter for some recommendations and this was right up my alley! Described by them as a "Barely Gold" I'd put it as a nice coral nude with a hint of gold, dare I say rose gold? Slightly dark and daunting in bullet form but light and airy on the lips. It's super moist as well so, although you'll most likely have to reapply after lunch, you'll forget you're even wearing it the rest of the day. As seen at the bottom I'm wearing it with an otherwise bare face (mascara doesn't count!) and it doesn't look stupid at all! 
Thanks to NARS I instantly associate matte black packaging with a Luxe feeling so this coupled with the gold trim and celebrity associations really tricks you into believing you've spent way more than you have. 



The Color Riche Collection is available at £6.99 from all the usual retailers however they're currently on a 2 for £14 offer at Boots so you may as well treat yourself properly! 
Or you could forgo the extra lippy and spend £40 on skincare like I did. But that's a story for another day!

Matcha Madness: The Body Shop Matcha Tea Face Mask Review

My name is Bex and I am a mask addict! I love masks. Cream, clay, mud, peeling, sheet, cellulose, nourishing... you name it and I love it! I recently spent an evening with the amazing staff from The Body Shop Belfast learning about all their key products and celebrating their cruelty free status and at the end of the night I was very kindly gifted their Japanese Matcha Tea pollution clearing mask - I was delighted!  We all know that the world has gone Matcha crazy but beyond an occasional frappe from a well known coffee house my main experiences have been with Matcha flavour cakes from my local asian supermarket. They are seriously amazing and the lightest sponge I've ever eaten but it doesn't exactly scream "good for you". Thankfully, apart from being seriously tasty Matcha is ridiculously good for you. Traditionally brewed as a simple green tea it is packed full of antioxidants - 10 times the amount in normal green teas as you are consuming the precious groun

Faeriwood Eats: Six By Nico Belfast Review

Nico, surveying his diners Six By Nico . A new concept restaurant for Belfast, and a welcome addition to the cathedral quarter, brought to us from Edinburgh and Glasgow.  6 courses rotating every 6 weeks for only 28.00 and you’re going to want to keep up with them because once they’re gone, they’re gone. With themes such as Vietnamese street food and Parisien cuisine, even a Disney theme being featured in their past menus I am looking forward to seeing what Nico and his team will come up with for Belfast. From talking to them though I found out that their first 3 menus will be inspired by Northern Ireland itself and with some of the best produce in the world and one of the most interesting cultures and histories that will be something to see!  First up is their debut menu, inspired by the humble chip shop, The Chippie menu takes the old standards and modernises them to levels you may be more used to seeing in Michelin level restaurants but with a very un-Michelin price poi

No Halloween Costume Needed

It's become an accepted norm that once December 1st comes around the nations will don their snowflake print leggings and their novelty jumpers but so far the other seasons are lacking in their effort. Yes, Halloween is famous as being the single greatest costume day of the year but I need October to step and represent in the seasonal apparel game.  Thankfully retailers have heard my inner goth cry and have come up with some seriously cute Halloween inspired items. For those who love a slogan tee you have every variation of saying that could possibly be made by rhyming witch with bitch and if you don't say every one of with Emma Roberts' attitude then you need to watch season 3 of American Horror Story immediately!   Dressing with the seasons is clearly big money but it doesn't have to cost the world. Here are my choices of how to get into the Halloween spirit all under £30.  Boohoo Starting with my favourites because I can! I actually bought the f
