SLEEK MAKEUP LIPSTICK IN MULBERRY

I’m aware that it’s March and the sun is up and shining so there’s no need for such a dark lipstick but who cares? It’s one of my favourite lipsticks because it’s so deep, wicked and dark. It’s a similar lipstick to the one Mary J Blige wore in her Not Gon’ Cry music video and I always wanted a lipstick like it! As much as I love this lipstick, I’d love it even more if it didn’t have so much of a sheen, it needs to be toned down a little.

L’OREAL’S GLAM SHINE CREAM IN SENSUAL GRENADINE

My love for this lipstick started many years ago when my mum bought this back with her after spending some time in Dubai and I’ve been hooked since. I can’t find it in London so I have to either find it in the Middle East or online which is a shame as I’d love for L’Oreal to stock it here.

It’s a rich, moisturising, creamy lipstick with full on colour. The shade is a plum with red/brown undertones and after a while, the lipstick does wear off but leaves a subtle reddish plum. It also smells really good, I can’t quite put my finger on what it smells of though.

SLEEK MAKEUP’S BLUSH BY 3 PALETTE IN FLAME

Sleek are my heroes this month with this blush palette. Unfortunately their blush palettes are limited edition so I got my hands on another two but this palette is perfect for spring and summer. From left to right order, Molten is a shimmery peach shade, Bonfire a bright, matte red shade is my favourite out of the trio and then there’s Furnace, a coral with a gold shimmer to it. Perfect!

LAVERA BASIC SENSITIV HANDCREME

I have a crazy collection of hand creams so I wasn’t too excited to receive this in last months JolieBox but after giving a try, I really like it. I tend to like my hand creams on the thick side (hence why the Body Shop’s Hemp Hand Protector is my favourite hand cream) but this one is a lot lighter and melts into your hands in no time. It might be light but the shea butter, jojoba and sweet almond oils make it a rich cream that left my hands moisturised for hours upon hours. By the way, please excuse Charlie who took it upon himself to sit right behind the hand cream whilst I was taking a photo of it!

TAAJ AYURVEDA PURIFYING AND REVITALIZING MAKE-UP REMOVER

Another great product from last months JolieBox! I wrote a review on it not too long ago but my love for it is still strong. Eyeshadow, waterproof make-up and mascara don’t stand a chance with this micellar water and in just one swipe, my make-up’s gone! Yet again, don’t mind the attention seeking but cute cat.
