Turned a corner at Tavistock street the other day and got instantly transported to paris! London has been a visual feast and there's literally nowhere that doesn't amaze me; it's obvious that I'm still in my tourist mode... The weather however, can be quite a drag sometimes. One minute it's cold and the next the sun beats down on you mercilessly. I'm still finding new ways to keep myself hydrated, and obviously failing since i'm currently nursing a bad throat (proceeds to down a couple of vitamin C's and H20) 

Everyone knows how much I love a good matte lip look, which is why I was looking at the new Souffle De Velvet wondering if i'd like it at all (if not, I'd feel reluctant to post about it) but after wearing it out a few times, I'm really starting to dig these sheer and most importantly... hydrating lippies. A good lip colour is really important for me, or girls like me who unfortunately have darker lips, and the Souffle De Velvet lippies (my favourite is Caramelo Meli) do a great job in giving me nice healthy glow. It goes on your lips looking slightly more glossy than you'd expect it to be, but dries to a nice matte; not the kind that dries your lips up, that gets a thumbs up for me. 

Try these out for yourself and let me know how you like it, or if it works for you at all! Bourjois SG will be giving away a set of their Souffle De Velvet— Rouge Edition (consising of 8 colours) to one lucky winner from 1st October to 14th October. All you have to do is
