"Under the Nave of the Grand Palais in Paris, a modern and minimalist nightclub is the setting for the Spring/Summer 2014 Haute Couture show. A rotating stage revealed two staircases where the models appeared and an orchestra accompanying the musician Sebastien Tellier".
Also, the stage looks like a beautiful makeup box filled with lipsticks in shades of pink - DC

Dr Organic Virgin Olive Oil Eye Serum

Dr Organic Virgin Olive Oil Eye Serum 

Dr Organic Virgin Olive Oil Eye Serum is a recent discovery in my search for eye care that really works. Formulated to reduce puffiness, dark circles and under eye bags, it boosts collagen around the eye area - the protein that ‘glues’ the skin, and it promotes cell hydration. As with the Dr Organic Pomengranate Advanced Recovery Eye Cream, I found after three weeks, the skin around the eye was completely hydrated, smooth, and fine line free. The anti-aging ingredient in olives is a hydrating fruit oil rich in Oleic acid, a powerful anti-aging antioxidant. Dark circles around the eyes were less reduced by the Dr Organic Olive Oil Eye Serum - the Dr Organic Pomengranate Advanced Recovery Eye Cream was more effective in erasing dark circles completely but the Virgin Olive Oil Eye Serum achieves its aims.

Eye serums are recommended for all skin types including more mature, aging skin. You will notice the difference between an eye cream and a serum. Creams are made by mixing oil with water. Active ingredients are added. Creams are more suited to dry and normal skin types. A serum is cooling, lighter and more easily absorbed, less like a cream and more like a gel. Serums are water-based only and are a more concentrated way of delivering key ingredients to the skin. One factor determining your choice of a serum or a cream generally should be your skin type – creams are for drier or normal skin conditions and oil-free serums suit acne-prone or oily skin. 

Apply sparingly by lightly tapping the Dr Organic Virgin Olive Oil Eye Serum twice daily around the delicate eye area using your ring finger, morning and at night after cleansing the skin to moisturize and rejuvenate. Apply also during the day if your skin is exposed to central heating which happens frequently during the winter months and drains moisture from the skin. An excellent product, this serum is an incredibly reasonably priced £9.29 for 15ml, the usual size for eye care. Available exclusively from Holland & Barrett stores nationwide or online. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Dr Organic is against animal testing. The Dr Organic Virgin Olive Oil Eye Serum is an honest little product.

Collection Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Cream

Collection Cream Puff in Fairy Cake
Shade Name: Fairy Cake
RRP: £2.99 GBP
Colour: Pinks
Undertone: Yellow
Finish: Matte
Opacity: Opaque
Lipcote Rating: 5

Cream Puff  Moisturising Lip Cream by Collection cosmetics is a brand new formula, a hybrid lip colour. Neither a lipstick nor a lip gloss, this lip cream dries to a matte finish. With powder microspheres and applied with a wand applicator, Collection Cream Puff Lip Cream is available in a range of four different colours - Fairy Cake, the shade I tested for the Lipcote site, is a coral pink; Cotton Candy is a dark rose; Powder Puff is a pale nude pink, and Angel Delight, a chocolate latte. 

The immediate appeal of this product is its packaging, its excellent design, and also its extremely reasonable price. Available in a 5ml tube, it’s a small but sufficient amount as this vitamin-enriched formula is moisturizing and spreads extremely easily. The Cream Puff colour is not highly pigmented but is buildable. Apply two coats and allow to dry. Purse the lips together and set for a natural, matte finish. To seal your favourite colour from this range, I suggest you apply Lipcote minimally as the Cream Puff formula is light, smooth and creamy.

Lipcote and the Collection Cream Puff Lip Creams complement each other perfectly. The colour when it sets is long-lasting and Lipcote certainly seals it completely. The Collection Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Creams are a lovely line of lip colours. I recommend the Collection Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Creams to you highly. Available to buy at selected beauty retail outlets. Excellent value at £2.99!
