Vegan, animal free lipstick, with no chemicals & additives, REVIEWED!
Bohemian Chic Minerals was founded after 3 years of researching and experimenting (on the creator), until she found the perfect, animal free formula that worked wonders for her own very sensitive skin.
Created with a blend of nourishing 100% natural & organic oils and waxes, this lipstick is highly pigmented, has a superior colour with a beautiful metallic sheen, creamy with luxurious texture that is soft, extremely moisturising, Vegan and Halal. Being natural its good to let it warm up a bit, whether it be on the back of your hand maybe as we found it needed that additional warmth. This a colour I wouldn’t usually pick up, due to the metallic, I actually quite liked, and to find that it has all of these natural, no cruelty ties too – it’s just a win win situation! Here I am wearing shade ‘burlesque’ .

anniversary of the most successful, unrivalled partnership in the beauty world. Rimmel and Kate Moss introduce a special-edition lip and nail collection in
Kate’s favourite reds and nudes. Revel in

muse since 2001, Kate has always embodied the edgy styles and soul of the
capital city; she’s the true original spokesperson for the London Look. Paying
homage to Kate’s most iconic looks, the new anniversary collection celebrates
the different facets of her fashion personality from red carpet idol to boho
says: “I’m incredibly proud of my 15 year
relationship with Rimmel. It’s a brand very close to my heart; my first ever
lipstick was Rimmel Heather Shimmer. The partnership has strengthened and
evolved over the years, with me taking an actively creative role. The new
anniversary collection echoes some of my favourite London looks from the last
decade and a half. I’ve focused on reds and nudes because they’re the colours I
love to wear – each shade reflects a different side of me.”
Building on this success of Kate’s debut make-up line that was first introduced in 2011, the anniversary collection stars six
lust-worthy shades – three reds and three nudes – each inspired by a classic
Kate look. The shades are:
Muse Red #51
Idol Red #52
Retro Red #53

My Nude #55
Boho Nude #56

richly-saturated, luminous colour lasts for up to 8 hours. Your pout will have
the power to mesmerise. RRP £6.49
In addition to the lipstick shades, Kate’s
iconic style extends to her tips and toes so the anniversary collection also
stars four shades of Super Gel Nail
Polish – three new colours and one classic shade. To complement the crimson
lip hues, the supermodel has created new Rock
N Sparkle #044, a shimmering red that adds glamour to any outfit. Kate has
also designed two new nudes for nails:Boho-licious
#015, a suit-all creamy beige; and Gilty
Pleasure #071, a beautiful rose-gold that captures the celebratory spirit
of the 15th anniversary. Ms.
Moss loves a super-shiny mani and, thanks to Rimmel innovation, Super Gel delivers a flawlessly glossy

If you’re looking for the perfect matte finish it doesn’t mean you have to hide behind layers of heavy foundation and powders. With No7’s Beautifully Matte formulations it’s possible to achieve your perfect level of coverage with a velvety soft finish – plus no powdery flatness. Not only that but they glide onto the skin to conceal and diminish flaws and pores, and contain SPF 15 to help protect against the ageing effects of the sun.

No7 High Shine Lip Crayon, £9 provides a gorgeous glossy lip colour in a crayon format which is really easy to wear. Available in a selection of greater colours for sheer or full coverage for great looking lips, whatever your style.With this great innovative design there is no need to sharpen the crayon, just twist the bottom cap when more colour is needed.I’m wearing ‘berry’ I loved the colour in the picture, however this was a little too metallic for me.
The New Joli Rouge Brillant Lipsticks have been enhanced with a new moisture enriched formula, offering a range of new shades with finer pearl particles for a subtle veil of sheer colour. The high-shine sister to Joli Rouge Lipsticks, they will guarantee moisturised glossy lips.
Perfect for up to 6 hours continuous wear, these are ultra-moisturising with organic marsh samphire extracts and mango oil giving softer supple lips. With the perfect scent of berries making these sheer colours even more irresistible.
Our tester thought… ‘Loved the colour (Coral) but it (very very sheer) felt good on, very light and smelt fab. Only lasted a few hours so on a night out you would have to reapply a few times’ – I’d suggest wearing with Clarins Lip perfector for that longer lasting wear!
Joli Rouge Brilliant lipstick, £20, available from Clarins.com
Clinique is delighted to partner for the twelfth year running with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity for the KISS IT BETTER appeal – raising money to fund research into the causes and treatment of childhood cancer.
KISS IT BETTER is the brainchild of Carmel Allen whose daughter Josephine was treated at the hospital for neuroblastoma – a type of cancer. After many months spent at the hospital, and struggling to reconcile life as a Beauty Editor, Carmel decided that she wanted to help and devised the KISS IT BETTER appeal.
“Kiss it Better is something every parent says and does when their child is sick or injured. I wanted to turn Josephine’s experience into something positive and to help make a difference to the lives of children with cancer everywhere. Jojo is an inspiration to me, she feels as passionately about helping other children as I do. The survival rates have improved even during the 12 years of Kiss it Better and I know they can improve even more” says Carmel.
Clinique will be launching a limited edition LONG LAST SOFT MATTE LIPSTICK in the best-selling shades Matte Magenta and Matte Petal to raise money for the appeal throughout February. Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick is matte yet moist, comfortable, non-drying and stain-free making it the perfect date night lipstick.
The lipstick will be housed in a beautifully designed barrel with 100% of the RRP being donated to the Kiss it Better appeal, and when you purchase two lip products you will receive a beautiful makeup bag with the matching unique design*. .
In addition, this year £2 from every lip product sold throughout the month of February will be donated to the Kiss It Better appeal,
