ghd Curve Review & My Chicago Curl Diary!

The week before last, ghd invited me on an extra special trip to Chicago, 'The Windy City' to test out and review their new range of curlers, ghd Curve. Obviously this wasn't an opportunity I could turn down. I've never been to Chicago before and it's always been on my list of places I'd love to visit. I've also been a huge fan of ghd for many years, so I was really excited not only to hear that they were launching a range of curlers, but also to try them out myself! I've had so many comments and tweets over the past couple of weeks asking me what I thought of them, so I thought I would do a proper in-depth review on my blog.
First of all, it's important to note the design and packaging of the whole range, as it is simply stunning...

Chanel Rouge Allure Lipglosses

Something landed on my doorstep last week that really made my beauty senses tingle. Chanel have released a gloss version of their gorgeous Rouge Allure lipsticks and I have to say… they are majorly impressive!
So they should be for the £26 price tag one might argue, but not everything in the Chanel makeup line is worth the wallet set-back. If you're looking for a gorgeous beauty treat, or even a gift, these are utterly gorgeous...

Rimmel Apocalips 'Lip Velvet' - Review & Swacthes

Rimmel are rolling out new releases by the bucketload at the moment! Another new addition to their range this autumn are the matte 'Lip Velvet' versions of their much-loved Apocalips lip lacquers, which launched in September. 
L-R Orange-ology, Meteoric Matte & Atomic Rose
The idea of these excited me on one hand, but I'm also quite fussy when it comes to matte lip products and very few impress me (one exception being the new Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks - see yesterday's post for more on those!) so I was intrigued to see how these performed, especially as I loved the originals...

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution

If you follow a few beauty blogs, you've probably seen a couple posts about the latest addition to Charlotte Tilbury's swoon-worthy makeup line already. These lipsticks have been talk of the town for the past few weeks. In case they haven't already made it onto your Pre-Christmas wish list, or into your handbag, here are my thoughts on the new 'Matte Revolution' line.
As usual with Charlotte's line, you can't fault the stunning rose gold 1920's inspired packaging. The shape of the bullet is squared, which I adore and they have a delicious sweet vanilla scent to them...

Brow This Way: Gimme Brow Dupe?

Another new Rimmel review today! A few weeks ago I picked up one of their new 'Brow This Way' coloured brow gels in Medium Brown. After Benefit's 'Gimme Brow' caused quite a bit of fanfare when it launched this year, I thought it would be interesting to compare the two.
The Rimmel version comes in 3 different shades (plus a clear one, which I'm ignoring for this post as it's not really comparable to the others). As you can see from the pictures, they look a little bit like a mini mascara...
