Best ever lipstick

I'm on to my second lipstick in the Chanel Aqualumiére range and I absolutely love the formulation. If, like me, you don't wear full on lipstick but favour lipstains (I used to get laughed at in my younger years for applying lipstick, wiping most of it off, then declaring 'I'm ready'!), then you might like this too.

My first colour was Amalfi (a vibrant peachy pink), and now I'm on to Porto Rodondo, which is more red. I think I will go back to Amalfi next time as it's so utterly wearable and lovely, though the red is fun for now. And it's a red you are not fully committed to due to it being a lip shine.

So good. I do love Chanel makeup.

Hello, I am Laura from Argentina, and it's my first time commenting. I wanted to know if you still do the no shampoo thing....and if you do, how you are doing after all this time. I think I am going to start soon, so just wanted to know.
Love your blog.

Hello Laura, thanks for visiting :)

Yes I am most definitely still doing the baking soda/ACV hair regime. Love it. I find I just have to adjust the baking soda and ACV ratios occasionally.

I also use jojoba oil (or argan oil which I am yet to try - it's also called Morroccan oil). My hair is colour-treated, so it works for me. It depends if your hair is more dry or more oily.

And I highly recommend brushing your hair once or twice a day with a bristle brush. It really does make a big difference. I do it at night mainly (my thorough brush, that is) and in the morning my hair feels great and looks healthy.

Good luck, I would love to hear how things go!
