When the Dior Lip Glow first arrived on the scene quite many years ago, it was pretty much deemed to be just another tinted lip balm. It came in only one shade, which tinted lips a hint of pink. I wasn’t really a fan because lip balm isn’t something I use, and neither was pink lipstick. But it was a big hit! Then, last year, they released the same product in the limited edition shade Berry, and I was hooked!

So, when a bunch of pretty balloons arrived, together with brand new Dior Lip Glow formulations for 2018, my interest was piqued.

Realizing just what a sleeper hit they had on their hands, Dior has now expanded the Dior Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm range to include not only new shades, but new textures. I find the new textures very interesting, because the idea of a “matte balm” is rather oxymoronic 😛

Alongside the regular Lip Glow, which is a plain tinted lip balm, there is now a Matte Glow version, which goes on matte and velvety, with a tint of colour; and Holographic Glow, which is a tint of colour, with iridescent shine and sparkle. I couldn’t quite get my head around Matte Glow, but I learned something interesting on how to use Holographic Glow that I can share with you 😀

YOUR SAY: Do you use or make your own homemade beauty products?

DIY or homemade beauty isn’t new. Everyone must have tried the trick of slapping yogurt or honey on your face as a mask, I’m sure. Or of rubbing sugar and honey on your lips as a homemade lip scrub. Or even (horrors!) rubbing lemon on your skin to lighten it.

I remember as a kid, lying down with my mom, with yogurt on our faces and cucumber slices over our eyes. Another time, we used over-ripe papaya. Ah, fun times LOL!

But I don’t do it anymore, preferring to let someone else do the legwork for me. Yet, I know it is a popular hobby, or even maybe a business for some. So, I’m curious. Do you use or make your own homemade beauty products? 🙂 Or perhaps you just eat them for breakfast instead of putting them on your face LOL! 😀

As a fan of Vitamin C serum I just had to see if I would enjoy using the Sephora Luminizing Booster with Vitamin C

I am quite a big fan of using Vitamin C serums, so when I was told by a few readers about the (then) new Sephora Luminizing Booster with Vitamin C, I was intrigued. It isn’t very expensive (relatively) and most people who have used it reported positive results with it.

Naturally, I was intrigued!

Incidentally, this is part of 3 different booster serums in the Sephora brand, and as you can expect, is only sold at Sephora stores or online. I have never used anything from the Sephora collection, so this is really the first time for me. I picked this up during one of the 20% sales – I’ve lost that privilege now I’m no longer a Black Card member! LOL Didn’t donate enough money to the Temple of Sephora 😛

The Sephora Luminizing Booster comes in a small bottle of just 20ml, and with slightly confusing directions of use. It claims to help improve dull skin, which is where the Vitamin C really comes it. It also claims to contain a high percentage of Vitamin C although it doesn’t quite say how much is “high”. But how did it fare for me, and is it something I’d use for the long term?

Eat at Chez PB: Super easy and delicious Chicken Cacciatore

I first tried Chicken Cacciatore many years ago, as a student. It was one of the first Italian dishes my Dad really enjoyed eating (he was less adventurous back in the day, thinking Italian food meant lots of cheese LOL!) and I’ve always looked for it on the menu at Italian restaurants. Unfortunately, it is not something easily found here.

One day, I told myself that if I wanted to eat it, I jolly well had to learn to cook it myself! So I did!

I looked around for a recipe, and there are a million and one on the internet. But I picked the one from Serious Eats, because it looked the easiest, with the fewest ingredients. I have since cooked this many times, with great success every time, and it’s now my signature dish! 😀 If you ever eat at Chez PB, odds are I’ll pull this trick out of my culinary repertoire LOL 😀

I hosted a New Year lunch with my friends this year, and instead of ordering in fast food, as we have been doing for the past 7 years, I decided to cook my Chicken Cacciatore dish. It turned into a mini pot luck, and was a lot of fun, and I might even say, delicious! 😀 So, let me share it with you.

“Is it worth it?” That’s a question you should ask yourself not someone else

Many of you know that my tastes and preferences in things does tend to run to the more expensive, or luxury brands and products. Or maybe something more niche, which often works out more expensive. I sometimes find people being almost apologetic for having champagne tastes, and I too used to be. But I’ve gotten over it.

discussing price worth and value

But there is one question I dread, whenever the subject of price and value comes up. “Is it worth the price?” You know what? Don’t ask it. Here’s why 😛
