Natural Toner for Sensitive skin

Hi everyone! Just a quick post today, about one of my favourite skincare products as of late. I can't actually remember where I heard about this, but I'm so glad I did, because it has really improved the overall appearance and condition of my skin. The product I want to talk about is the Cortas 100% Rose Water, which I've been using as a toner. After cleansing my skin as normal, I put a little bit of the rose water on a cotton round and swipe it gently over my skin. Not only does this remove any makeup that cleansing might have missed, but it helps to soothe and refresh tired, red skin. This rose water is actually food grade, meaning it doesn't contain any alcohol, which can sometimes irritate sensitive skin types. The pure distilled rose water helps to plump the skin up with moisture, leaving you looking youthful and dewy. I bought a 300mL bottle from PAK'nSAVE for no more than a few dollars I believe, (I can't quite remember the price as this was a while ago) and I've only used a little over a quarter of it. If you are looking for a natural toner that won't dry out your skin, have a look at Cortas Rose Water. If you don't end up liking it, you can always use the rose water in cooking! 

How do you feel about using food grade products on your skin?

Karen Murrell Lipstick Swatches

Hellooo! Sorry again for the lack of posts! Uni's been very busy, but I've managed to put aside some time this weekend to catch up on some posts I've been planning. 

I've been wanting to do this post for a while because I find lipstick swatches SO helpful, especially now that online shopping is taking over and the colours in the photos provided aren't often very accurate. Here i've collected a bunch of my Karen Murrell lipsticks (a few are lost in the depths of handbags and my makeup drawers, so please forgive the fact that they are unable to feature in this post!) to show you what they look like on my lips. I hope this helps some people!

From left to right: Sand Storm, Violet Mousse, Cordovan Natural, Sugar Rush, Magenta Moon, Pink Starlet, Fuchsia Shock, Coral Dawn, Rymba Rhythm, True Love, Scarlet Blaze.
