The most recent product of this rediscovery phase I have entered is Clinique's 'All about lips'. I don't wish to rave too much about this one, but I can't remember why I stopped using it because it seems to work so well. I apply it in a morning just before my lipstick and not only does it appear to moisturise my lips better than anything I have used in recent years, it also makes my lipstick or lip gloss stay put longer as well.

I was a little disappointed with what they had to offer, the best thing about the new collection was the packaging! The 'Give me Liberty of London' packaging was so cute that I knew that I had to find something from it. The beauty powders (speciffically the 'Shell Pearl') caught my attention but had unfortunately sold out!
In the end I chose the 'Blooming Lovely' lipstick which was a pale purple shade, (shown below) which was something that I hadn't tried before.
The second product I chose was the 'Runway Ripened' colour Pro Long Wear Lipstain Marker from the 'Art Supplies' collection. I have had lip stains before but never from Mac so i'm interested to see how this one works out.
The third item I brought was a little unusual for me, it was the small makeup bag from the 'Give Me Liberty' collection. I don't tend to go for their makeup bags as I find them over priced for what they are, (hence I restrained my self when the Hello Kitty collection came out) but this time I thought this particular one was so cute that I would 'throw caution to the wind' and break a habbit of a lifetime!
The other product I picked up that day was the Yerba Mate Tea Cleanser by Kiehls. I believe this was mentioned by Lollipop26 in one of her monthly favourites videos a while back and having tried a sample I thought I would give it a go. I will hopefully get around to doing a review of this product soon.

I had extremely high hopes of this product, especially with all the hype I was given by the ladies at the Space Nk counter in Harvey Nicholls.
I purchased the Eve Lom Starter Collection at the beauty event in Birmingham and I have to say it was the biggest mistake of my life!
The cleanser left my face sore and blotchy (and yes I had used it exactly as directed by the packaging and the ladies at the beauty counter). Apparently it wasn't just me being hyper sensitive to my appearance either, for when I wondered down stairs the following morning I was met with 'Oh my goodness, what on earth have you done to your face?!'
Not a great start to any morning!!
Being the fool that I am, I then decided to give the product another try because after all the reaction might just have been because I was 'not used to it'.
Again I had a bad reaction. Suffice it to say it will not be getting a third chance!
It has been over a month now and my skin has just started to settle down. My usually combination, fairly tough skin is now hyper sensitive and red.
If you are planning on using this product I would definitely urge you to do further investigation first.
