Perfectly Purple


I really enjoyed doing my pink post last week and this week it’s the turn of purple. My favourite colour although I don’t have much makeup that colour which I find odd so I’ll have to go purple-cosmetics-shopping! Anyway these are the purple products I do have.

Yves Rocher So Elixir Purple – So technically this doesn’t show up purple when it’s on but it is called purple and the bottle is purple. It also smells amazing. Full review  here.

MUA Nail Polish in Frozen Yoghurt – I love this cute purple colour! I only used it for the first time yesterday and fell in love so I will review it at a later date. It is a wonderful candy-purple shade and is perfect for these last few sunny days before we hit autumn, I’m going to make the most of it while I still can!

Purple Hair Chalk – So I can’t use this right now with my red hair as it’ll clash far too much but I love it none the less and if/when I go back to a suitable colour again I’ll definitely be using it again. I have 24 different colour chalks but this is my favourite. Review here. 

The Body Shop Eye Definer in Amethyst – This eye liner is great for adding a purple pop of colour to a natural look. I only reviewed it yesterday so I won’t go into too much detail.

The Body Shop Baked to last Eye Shadow duo in Amethyst – I have discovered ow that this is best used wet and I love the vibrant purple it produces that way. It looks stunning and is really easy to work with. Don;t think I’ll ever use it dry again!

Think next week will be Glorious Green so stay tuned for that!


Yves Rocher – HYDRA VÉGÉTAL Instant Anti-Wrinkle Moisturiser Review

1Reviewed by Tams

Now clearly at 24 I don’t have much in the way of wrinkles but I received this a while ago so thought I’d try it anyway, maybe it’ll prevent them appearing so soon who knows! Targeted skin care isn’t usually my thing, I generally don’t have the time to use a different product for each area of my skin. This is aimed at wrinkle-prone areas. I use it round my eye area as although I don’t have wrinkles it works really well at waking my eyes up. It perks up dark circles and fills my eyes out to a more healthy look when I look more like a zombie than a human!

My 40-something year old mother has also given it a go and reported back that it did reduce the appearance of the couple of wrinkles she has. It also provides a lovely long-lasting moisture, it feels silky and smooth all day.

It has a very natural, barely-detectable scent which I quite like, it also works well combined with the use of my ordinary moisturiser. I’d love to hear from someone older who’s tried it, did it work for you?

Try it: £18.50 (Currently £9.50 in their sale),

Yves Rocher France – So Elixir Purple Eau de Parfum Review

1Reviewed by Tams

I love how a scent can evoke an emotion, take you back to a place or a time and therefore I love perfumes and often use the same ones over and over again.

This one dropped through my letter box about 3 months ago and I’ve only used it recently. This one somehow smells familiar even though it is unlike anything I have smelt before, it instantly felt right, it suits my personality. Of course it helps that it is name after my favourite colour too!

This perfume boasts a unique infusion of Tuberose, Vetiver and Patchouli, I personally do not know what any of those smell like alone but together they produce a wonderful woody-floral scent which I love. It is a grown-up-scent without being a granny-scent. It is simply beautiful.

It somehow feels like a passionate scent, a scent that says I mean business. It is definitely on my list of items to purchase full size!

Top tip: Spray on the hotspots on the body for best effect, perfumes are best used on the inside of the wrist and elbow, collar cone, neck and under the ear lobe.

Try it: 50ml for £44,
