Loreal Colour Riche Lipsticks Review

I love lipsticks and cannot leave the house without wearing something on my lips. A stand out lipstick range is the Loreal Colour Riche Lipsticks - I talk about them a lot on instagram

Book review: 'the things we keep' by Sally Hepworth

It's time for a book review! 'the things we keep' is a book by Sally Hepworth -  a fiction book that brings you into the lives of people who have early onset Alzheimers and live in a residential assisted living facility.

Synopsis: 
Anna Forster, in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease at only thirty-eight years old, knows that her family is doing what they believe to be best when they take her to Rosalind House, an assisted living facility. She also knows there's just one other resident her age, Luke. What she does not expect is the love that blossoms between her and Luke even as she resists her new life at Rosalind House. As her disease steals more and more of her memory, Anna fights to hold on to what she knows, including her relationship with Luke. 
When Eve Bennett is suddenly thrust into the role of single mother she finds herself putting her culinary training to use at Rosalind house. When she meets Anna and Luke she is moved by the bond the pair has forged. But when a tragic incident leads Anna's and Luke's families to separate them, Eve finds herself questioning what she is willing to risk to help them.
This is such a beautiful, heartfelt and well written book that I really loved reading. It deals with important topics like memory loss, caring for those with alzheimers, the effect it has on others, compassion, love and identity. 

The book takes us through the main character Anna, a ex paramedic who is living in Rosalind House and how the disease affects her on a day to day basis. The frustration, confusion and cognitive decline of Anna's character is so real. Anna meets Luke another young resident of Rosalind House who is suffering from front temporal dementia which affects his speech. Their relationship evolves and they make a connection however can't be together.

There is Eve the new cook at Rosalind House and Clementine Eve's seven year old daughter who is learning to cope living without her dad. They have a story of their own and together the book takes you through their struggles, hope, love and compassion. The residents of Rosalind House are interesting and add something extra to the story, like Bert who saves a seat for his long dead wife at every meal.

Overall this was a excellent fictional book to read that kept me intrigued and wanting to know what will happen next the whole time. Definitely a great book that I recommend! Check out Sally Hepworth's website here.

Gerard Cosmetics 1995 lipstick Review

Gerard Cosmetics are not easy to get in Australia but I managed to get one lipstick called 1995 from the website Crush Cosmetics.
  
Gerard Cosmetics say: Get inspired by the neutral nudes of the 90s. Inspired by the 90s grunge revival and the beauty trends of an unforgettable decade, this iconic creation is a matte but creamy lip color that isn't trendy but a timeless expression of glam.
The packaging is a cute gold bullet lipstick that is so pretty and luxurious. This lipstick has a matte finish and is a warm medium red/brown colour. The formula is dry being that it is a matte lipstick. It did get a little getting use to using a drier lipstick but I do love it for the colour and great staying power. As it is a matte it does last longer than usual, around 6 hours before it starts wearing off. It is a beautiful brown/red colour and is a great everyday lip colour.

Overall I do like it and would love to try other colours. They retail for $20.00aud on the Crush Cosmetics website and they have about 25 different colours.

Have you tried any Gerard Cosmetics lipsticks? What is your favourite?

Most used beauty products of the month - December 2015

Another month has past us! It is time for the most used or favourites beauty/hair products of the month post. These I have been loving and would consider products I will be repurchasing over and over.
 

Fudge treatment spray - This is a great  treatment spray, easy to use just spray it on your hair and it will help condition, smooth and protect the hair. I do like the way it leaves my hair feeling soft and silky.

Australis fresh and flawless powder - I love this powder. It was recently released in lighter shades
which is great for my fair skin. This powder applies beautifully on the skin and gives me a flawless finish to my makeup. It wears all day and is great for my oily t-zone. 

Rimmel Match Perfection foundation - I have been using this lots lately. The fact that it comes in a shade light enough for my fair skin is fantastic. This is a great everyday, light-medium coverage foundation that looks beautiful on the skin. It has sunscreen in it spf20 which is great as well.

Beauty Blender - I love this for applying my foundation particularly heavy, full coverage foundation. I just tap on the foundation with the beauty blender and it give a even, flawless finish on the skin.

Garnier Nutri Repair Instant Detangler - I have been using this for years and really love it for de-tangling my hair and as a treatment. It gives my hair a smooth de-tangled finish and can be used on dry hair. 

That's it for this month, these are definitely all my favourites and products I will love for a long time. The are all affordable and available pretty much anywhere, supermarkets and department stores.

 What product is your favourite?
