Marissa Carter the ambassador behind the brand Cocoa Brown is a genius when it comes to self tan. I honestly couldn't praise the tan enough if I tried and their 1 hour tan mousse is still my all time favourite self tan. So when I heard about their new hair care range including their new Kind shampoo & conditioner I couldn't wait to try it out. What I love about this product is that Marissa actually designed the product to use for her self as she has stated previously that she's suffered with psoriasis and a sensitive scalp, but hasn't found anything for her hair that treats this as well as adding volume and shine to her hair. I was really excited about this product as I've previously suffered with a sensitive scalp myself and it's still an on going battle.

I don't know about you, but I can be very picky when it comes to picking out my shampoo and conditioner. I don't mean I spend £30 on one shampoo, but I will look into what I'm buying before just adding it to my basket. I need something that's hydrating, gives me volume, shine and something that doesn't irritate my scalp. That's why I was so happy to try out the shampoo as it's paragon-free, alcohol-free and a formaldehyde-free product. The conditioner is also free of any nasties, making both of these hair products great to use on my coloured hair and extensions. There's nothing worse than those shampoos and conditioners that do nothing for your hair. Well other than making you want to wash it over and over again.

So what makes this Shampoo & Conditioner so Kind? Firstly the cleansing agents have been made up from natural sources including coconut oil, and fruit sugars. The Cocoa Brown Kind Range has a subtle Peach and Tahitian Gardenia scent to the product. It's not strong at all and I really love the  subtle scent it leaves in my hair (we all know how much I love peach). In fact the scent is that lite that the brand didn't have to list it on their product if they didn't want to, but of course they have.

I tried the Cocoa Brown Kind Shampoo & Conditioner out for a week before writing the review. My hair type is fine, but I have a lot of it so trying out a new shampoo can sometimes be scary! I often find that certain shampoos and conditioners weigh down my hair and make it look really flat and lame, but I'm so happy with the results! My scalp has been really clear and itch free. I'm happy with the volume and shine its given me too, which is amazing for a shampoo & conditioner that doesn't contain all the baddies!

Also if you're a fake tan lover like myself you'll also love that Marissa has made sure that the pH Balance of these products won't interfere with your tan. Helping to maintain your tan and ensuring an even fade. How amazing is that?!

Here is a photo of my hair after using the Cocoa Brown Kind Shampoo & Conditioner. As you can see there's a lot of volume and shine and most importantly it's hasn't budged my new pink hair. Yay!

The New Grandiôse Liner from Lancôme is here with it's new hinged 35 degree bendable handle. Making application a lot easier as the brush just flows with the natural contour of the eye. Lisa Eldridge worked very closely on the design of this product. The 35 degree angle has been designed to help you create the perfect angle and application for when you're applying your eyeliner, which will help you create the perfect flick. Finally an eyeliner that gives you some flexibility. We all know Lancôme is popular make up brand that has a lot of ratings when it comes to eye make up, especially the Grandiose Mascara. So I had high hopes when I received this product.

The eyeliner comes in three different shades; Noir Mirifique, Brun Mirifique and Saphir Mirifique (black, brown and navy) which are all matte. The colour I received was Noir Mirifique which is a matte black. I absolutely love the pigment of this eyeliner, its blacker than black.

This eyeliner is really good for getting close to the lash line, it just takes a steady hand to make sure you get a perfect line with no wobbly bits as the tip is so fine. As you can see in the picture below. Saying that though... I did the best eyeliner I've ever done yesterday. You know when it's that good that you don't want to wash it off? Yep one of those days! I applied the eyeliner at around 8am and it was still in the same place at 10.30pm last night. The colour hadn't faded and I had no smudges. I really like this eyeliner and I'll definitely continue to use it.

Here is a look that I created along with my every day make up routine. 

Overall I really liked this product, but you do have to work quick with the eyeliner as the product seems to dry/set really quick, which I don't mind at all as the eyeliner stays put on the eye and doesn't loose any pigmentation throughout the day as stated above. The eyeliner has become a part of my daily routine and I'm loving it! Have you tried this eyeliner yet? What did you think if so?

Say hello to my new blue hair! (thank my inner 13 year old). Now I'm not too sure if it's love or hate just yet as I'm not use to it, but I've had enough of my boring hair. I've had it plain for far too long. It's time to mix it up again. If you'd like to see a post on how I created my hair? Or maybe a YouTube tutorial? Let me know.

I recently picked up this little playsuit in my local H&M as I've been looking for items to put over my bikini in the day or for on a night time for when I go away later this year. Yes! I'm going on holiday and I'm going to Mexico! I can't wait! I also picked up these shades up in H&M and I'm in love with them. They was only £9.99 too, such a bargain! I was meant to be saving them for my holiday, but I don't think I'll be able to.
