Mecca Cosmetica – NARS Spring Collection

nars spring

“Inspired by Catherine Deneuve’s role as Lucille in La Chamade, the NEW NARS Spring 2010
Collection features soft, sexy shades that are as elegant as they are versatile. “I love Catherine’s
makeup look in this movie,” says François. “It’s very sophisticated and bourgeois in a Parisian
‘16th Arrondissement’ way. She is the perfect reference for this collection, and apropos for our
spring collection, it’s time to embrace colour and get noticed.” The hues are playful yet
sophisticated and can be either soft and subtle or bold and daring. As always, the effects are
limitless, determined by application, technique, and attitude.”

Released Monday 22nd Feb 2010

Long Term Relationship Hair!!

You may all think that I’ve gone a little Valentines mad, well I kind of have !!!!

I was sent these products and have been using them for about 2 weeks (maybe 3).


“Love your luscious long locks, or always coveted long hair, but could never quiet go the full distance? Now you can help kiss breakage goodbye and embrace the perfect partner for enjoying a lifelong love affair with long hair – introducing Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship

Scientifically formulated specifically for long tresses, Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship puts the love pack into your hair.”

The first thing I really love about them is the scent, its divine without being over powering. I guess this isn’t really new as Herbal essences Shampoo’s and Conditioners have always had a lovely scent about them!

Like I said I have been using these for a couple of weeks now and I have been pleasantly surprised. My hair is smoother and definitely shinier! The other thing I noticed is that I’m not having to wash my hair as often, which as you all know is a plus for me because the red fades quicker if I have to wash it more than twice a week! The mask is so thick and would recommend trying it out too! For  RRP $6.49 and $7.99 its a price you really can’t beat. And who doesn’t love a product that does more for less!

Fragrance – Red raspberry and satin, inspired by nature’s essence and blooming with luscious fragrance:
• Top notes – berry custard brulee, blackberry juice, plum and wild strawberry
• Middle notes – red velvet dream cake, violet flower, jasmine petal and red orchid
• Base notes – chocolate cherry melt-away, sensual woods and musk

(doesn’t it sound almost edible!!)


Even more Valentines posts on the way!!!!!

Tip of the Day

Eye drops are great to use before you do your makeup when your going out. They will brighten your eyes.

You can also dab a little onto any spots you may have as they help reduce redness. Leave on for 10mins the rinse off before applying makeup.

Just make sure you use clear eye drops for this as you don’t want to stain your face.
