DB Cosmetics Contour Kit Review & Swatches

Yes, I have a lot of contour palettes. And yes, I know contouring is no longer cool - it's all about strobing now (and seriously, can we just call it highlighting already?), but this was one contour palette I couldn't pass on and not just because it was less than $10!.

I first spotted the DB Cosmetics Contour Kit ($9.95!) on my Instagram feed. It wasn't available in stores yet, but you could do a pre-order online and of course I did just that. When it arrived, my only regret was not ordering 2 of them as I think these will sell out quickly.

Bobbi Brown Telluride Eye Palette Review

You know I love a good neutral palette, in fact I probably have far too many and I doubt I'll use any of them up in the foreseeable future. But when I was offered a PR sample of this Bobbi Brown palette  I couldn't say no, because you know, neutral.

The 2 products helping me fake a good night's sleep

Before we get started on the product review, there are 2 things you need to know.
a. I have an almost 3yr old son that still comes into our bed at night.
b. I'm currently 9.5 months pregnant (aaaghhhhh!!!!)

Those two things combined mean that I have been sleeping pretty badly lately! The 3yr old snuggles to me so tightly (burrows into me more like it), that if I'm not careful I'll fall off the edge of the bed. And the pregnancy bit means I get up a thousand times a night for bathroom breaks. So to say that a good night's sleep hasn't been happening for me lately is an understatement. And it showed. On my skin, under my eyes and just all over.

I was this close to going to the shops and buying my favourite Maybelline concealer which helped me fake good sleep after I'd just had baby #1. But then after rummaging through my stash I came across these 2 products I was sent a while back from Physician's Formula and thought I'd give them a go. And what do you know, they're great!

Lipstick Tales: Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Dry Rose

I'm a huge fan of Laura Mercier, but so far I've only ever tried their eye products (the Luxe Colour Wardrobe which I reviewed HERE is till a favourite!). I was recently sent one of their lipsticks to try out, and oh my, it's delish!

The Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Dry Rose is hydrating, it's creamy, it's pigmented and it's long lasting. Everything you'd want from a lipstick wrapped in an elegant case. One swipe is enough for full opaque coverage, and you don't even need a lipliner with it as due to the pigmentation it's easy enough to get a nice sharp outline to your lips.
