Marc Jacobs About last night

Marc Jacobs has some beautiful sets for Christmas if you are feeling like splashing out a little.
 We have two kits to share with you, one for the lips and one for the eyes and cheeks. Both kits are presented in a stunning clutch style compact. 
 Each case is a metallic cushioned zip up clutch with added black tassle detail. I just wish it was easier to pop out the eye shadows so that the case could be re used as an evening bag.

The lips selection called Up all night includes 5 mini lipsticks. I love a mini lip product because the size actually makes it easier to apply with precision. The pigment is insanely good. Bold, rich and with a satin finish.

Nice little mix of shades with something for everyone however because each shade is totally different from the next you probably are only going to like one or two colours in the collection.

The face and eye palette in Object of desire is the perfect weekend away palette. The eye shadows are satin and metallic finish and offer up either a neutral beige eye or a smoky plum look. Two blushers in apricot or rose pink and  a golden pearl highlight.
 Good colour pay off and the black infused with plum sparkle is instantly black with little effort needed to build the intensity. Shades do have a little fall out.


The Style Eye-Con No2 palette is HUGE! Initially I thought it was another giant bronzer but in fact it is a 20 shadow palette. The darker shades have a really great pay-off and blend out beautifully. The lighter shades are a little bit wishy-washy and blend away to not much but can be built up with a bit of patience. The best shades are the metallic golds and bronzes. The reflection from these is superb.

It's not a palette you are likely to carry in your bag but definitely one to keep on your dresser. The colour choice is great with some really good mid tone shades to contour the socket with.

You can purchase the palettes and more for a limited time here.

 My skin has been freaking out a little recently. I'm not sure if it's the change in the weather temperature, if my diet has not been particularly great or if I just haven't been giving my skin the attention it needs...probably all of the above.

I always tend to use balm cleansers but as these don’t seem to be working for me at the moment I thought I would change it up a bit. My skin has been really bumpy under the surface, not cystic spots but just little lumps, which never amount to anything. These areas are generally around the sides of the chin and only really noticeable to me but still very annoying.
I began testing the anti-ageing cleansing gel from Peter Thomas Roth. It is a liquid gel, which is scented with a delicate peach. It should be applied to damp skin and massaged over before rinsing off.

What does it contain?

Glycolic acid, salicylic acid and citric acid with white oak bark, lemon, linden and grapefruit. It is for all skin types except sensitive.
 With a list of ingredients such as this you can be sure of some serious exfoliation. Being a cleanser it’s not a product that remains on the skin for too long. If you have areas that need extra exfoliation then ensure you massage the cleanser over for a little longer.

This cleanser does leave your skin feeling totally clean and lifts away makeup easily, although I wouldn’t recommend using it over the eyes, it’s a bit too acidic for that.

 It advises use on all skins but I did find that after continuous use my skin began to feel a little dry. If you have a combination or oily skin then you will love the matte feeling this leaves after removal but a dryer skin will feel taught and a little uncomfortable.
Gives great clarity to a dulling skin and removes dead skin cells, which can lead to breakouts. Because of the various acids contained be extra cautious in the sunshine.
