L'Oreal Extraordinary Clay Collection

*Sponsored Post
L'Oreal Paris have launched a new collection into their Elvive range this month and *Rejoice* it's formulated for those of you who (like me) suffer with oily roots, while the ends of your hair just seem to get drier and drier! The Extraordinary Clay collection is aimed to combat that problem, absorbing excess oil from the roots while leaving the ends silky smooth, therefore eliminating the need to wash your hair as often.
The collection consists of four products: A pre-shampoo masque, shampoo, conditioner and a dry shampoo. All contain three different clays - a totally new ingredient to the L'Oreal line-up! White clay to purify the roots, blue clay to hydrate the ends and green clay to revitalise the entire fibre. So do they actually work?

Maybelline BABY LIPS Balm & Blush

Maybelline have just dropped the big sister product to their best-selling Baby Lips lip balms. The new multi-use balms come in a dome shape similar to the cult EOS lip balm, with a convenient flat-top, twistable lid.
There are four different shades, all with different scents and they are designed to be used both on the lips as a sheer colour balm and on the cheeks as a wash of dewy colour...

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Collection

Today I wanted to share some pictures of the new Urban Decay Gwen Stefani collection. It's an extension of their existing eyeshadow palette with Gwen and those of you who loved that palette will adore these new additions I'm sure as they definitely don't disappoint!
So there are 14 new products in total: a blush palette (£35), a brow box (£19.50), 6 lipsticks (£16) and 6 matching lip liners (£14). I'm going to be talking through the collection in a bit more detail in my upcoming 'New in Beauty' video next week, so if you want to know more on my thoughts about the collection, head over to my YouTube channel for that.

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande

The latest celebrity to put their name to the MAC Viva Glam charity project is Ariana Grande. The collection of two products launched yesterday on the MAC website, and will be on counters in the UK from the 4th February. Having seen pictures of the products (and the almost BLACK looking lipstick!) I was really intrigued by the colour choices...

I managed to get my hands on a set to show you all today - let me know what you think and if you'd wear them?! Read on for a full review & swatches...

Chanel Healthy Glow Foundation - Review

Chanel are my favourite brand when it comes to foundation. Their Vitalumiere Aqua foundation is my all time favourite, I almost cried then they discontinued Pro Lumiere and their Vitalumiere compact is my go-to touch up when I'm on the go. Needless to say, when they announced the launch of 'Les Beiges Healthy Glow' foundation this month I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. With a name like Healthy Glow, it sounded promising to say the least! So does it live up to my (very high) expectations?
Firstly for the packaging... I'm a big fan. I love the frosted glass. The heavy, sleek bottle is really luxurious yet still quite small and compact. It feels much more premium than the small plastic bottles that house the Vitalumiere Aqua and Perfection Lumiere Velvet but it is heavier, so if you love them for their portability this isn't quite as handbag friendly. It has a nice pump that dispenses cleanly. I use two full pumps to cover my face and neck.
