I read about Lipstick Queen's Jean Queen in a recent top 50 beauty buys article in the Guardian's weekend supplement and was instantly sold on the description of this being a lipstick made to be worn with jeans and a t-shirt. Nothing heavy or over the top, just a universally flattering, easy to wear shade that adds a groomed look to every day outfits. This is exactly the kind of make-up product I'm always in search of. I'm also a fan of Lipstick Queen's sheer Medieval lipstick, which is so flattering and ridiculously easy to wear if you're a bit of a lipstick-phobe (like me)!
I'm not sure my love affair with Diptyque candles will ever end - they're equally beautiful when fragrancing a room as they are sitting unlit on display. My favourites are Mimosa, Figuier, Gardenia and Menthe Verte for Spring/Summer and Oranger and Baies for Autumn/Winter. The new daffodil inspired Jonquille candle also sounds lovely for this time of year. Jasmin is new to me, so the mini-candle size is perfect for giving it a whirl and taking it away on an upcoming trip.
