Rouge Edition Velvet in 07 Matte Finish

I'd recently watched one of ViviannaDoesMakeup's videos and I saw her use one of the Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks featured and I instantly had to have it. When I was next in my local Boots store I picked it up in a matte finish in 07.

I absolutely love the consistency of this lipstick, I think it's very similar to that of the Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll Kiss and Blush Lips & Cheeks Stain (is that a long name or is that a long name??)! It applies extremely smoothly and it isn't drying at all which is great in a matte lipstick. The colour is quite neutral and you can intensify the colour by applying it solidly or calm it down by applying a little bit and blending it out, either way it looks great!!

Definitely worth a buy and I highly recommend it for such a bargain price!!!

Benefits of Drinking Water

Drinking water has soooo many benefits and while dieticians rave on about it and you think yes i will start drinking more water, it's quite easy to forget to do so. So I thought I'd share some health and beauty benefits of drinking water with you in order to try and get you to actually drink that water.

5 Beauty Benefits of Drinking Water

  •  it keeps your skin looking young, (filling in and plumping the skin, reducing wrinkles) hydrated (meaning it's less likely to dry out) and healthy
  •  your hair is made up of 5% water so the amount you drink reflects in the glossiness of your hair 
  •  it removes toxins and waste from the body, thereby cleanses it internally and externally, getting rid of  those under-skin spots
  •  drinking enough combats skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis 
  •  it keeps your skin toned and tight
5 Health Benefits of Drinking Water
  • it can relieve stress - in order to function properly, all of our organs (especially the brain) need water and when they are deprived of it, it can lead to stress
  •  it helps burn fat by boosting metabolism 
  •  it builds healthy muscle as it carries oxygen to the cells that build muscle tissue
  •  it aids healthy joint movement by acting as a lubricant around the cartilage 
  • it helps you lose weight because it deceives your stomach into thinking it's full and therefore you are less likely to snack 

friendly reminder, drink more water!!
