Opening the archive

Taking inspiration and design from the historic archives of Sanderson, (a well know print company who’ve specialised in printing wallpapers since 1860) comes the curated collection for bath, body and home in four new and unique fragrances.

Dating back to the last century, Sanderson have picked four of their renowned designs, bringing them to us in new colorways, and in the form of a fragrance created by specialist perfumers to evoke the mood of the designs in a new and exciting way and injected into beautiful beauty products.

Created without parabens and sulfates, here in England, the collection comes in copper detailed pump bottles and delicately scented and pretty patterned drawer liners.

We were lucky enough to get our hands on the Rose & Peony 1927 set. This pattern began life as a luxury wallpaper design in 1927, produced by surface roller printing at the original Sanderson wallpaper factory in Chiswick. It continue life as a fabric in 1930 and had been one of the favourites ever since.
It now comes to life in a new colour way of marine hues, of blues and lime and a fragrance to reflect the freshness of the colourway. Scented with ‘Aromatic Green scents’ of Bregamot, cardamom, nutmeg and lavenders on a base of Amber this is a lovely scented collection with dresser top display quality packaging. The copper pumped bottles and patterned tubes will look great anywhere with the classic patterns across the collections.

Celebrate with Ciate


#Nationallipstickday
is one of the days us girls shouldn’t miss, whether it’s by wearing our favourite lippie or simply trying out a new bold and daring colour, we should all be getting stuck in!
This year we will be bringing you a range of products that we love, not just today, but since Wednesday we’ve been bringing you some of the newest, most gorgeous lip products!

Now excuse the ever so hilarious pout here, lips are actually closed with no attempt at a pout, it’s the new shaping I was trying out and here we go pouts galore! A shape, that we see celebs with the likes of Charlotte Crosby and the Kardashian / Jenner clan, in particular Kylie take on. Here I’ve applied Liquid Velvet lip colour in ‘

Chatterbox’ by Ciate, £17 with a line that instead of lining in an upturned arch where half the time I look like I’m part of the cast from Ab Fab (on the outer edges of the top lip) I work from the bottom edges of the top lip creating a very slight inward facing arch or downward arch giving as we see this pout! :/ I may not be the best photographer to capture how it looked non pouty, but my lips certainly look much fuller! Try it yourself and try out these new wonderful products, they shouldn’t be missed!

So refresh your lipstick wardrobe today and ramp up the colour with Ciate’s Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slick. Available in 8 new colours, this is a high coverage, long wearing and high performance pigment lip colour. With hyaluronic acid for its ultra intense lip-conditioning benefits to help lips look fuller and feel much smoother and supple! Make the most out of the innovative precision tip, which makes light work of lining and filling in lips for the precision application!

15 Years of The London Look

Two
British beauty icons, 15 years of London looks… Join us to celebrate the 15th
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
timeless Brit cool at its best.

Rimmel’s
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
goddess.  

Kate
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
  • Rock N Roll Nude #54
  • My Nude #55
  • Boho Nude #56

All of
Kate’s lip shades are designed to dazzle throughout the day with a full impact
formula that’s infused with light-reflecting Black Diamonds. What’s more, the
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
finish with the 3D volume of professional gel manicure. Its exclusive,
patented, two-step Gel Colour System uses a natural light curing technology to
create superior gel colour and shine that lasts for up to 14 days. Easy to
apply, it dries like regular nail polish – no UV lamps needed.  RRP £5.99
