Undercover Style Wars (6.) (Zoe Saldana vs Lea Michele)

 Zoe Saldana vs. Lea Michele
Gown Category

Wow these ladies certainly have got the wow factor in these two amazing dresses, Zoe is a forward thinking fashionista, who is not afraid to take fashionable risks and she does not dissapoint in this daring dress, that is not only eye-catching but extremely flattering, whilst Lea opts for a more simple style, and although we love Lea's style and she often graces the best dressed list we have to ask the question, haven't we seen enough "going in at the waist and flairing out" dresses on the red carpet for the past 5 years?. Therefore Zoe wins the category for her unusual dress.
Gown Category: Zoe Saldana

Event/Appearance dress

Zoe pulls it out of the bag once again seeking out unusual dresses, Zoe looks like a medieval goddess in this beautifully crafted dress, and this girl owns it. Once again, while Zoe goes all out on the red carpet, Lea wears a dress that is very flattering but lacks that wow factor. So, once again Zoe steals this category for the risks she takes in her sexy, red carpet fashions.

Everyday Outfit

 Zoe accentuates her toned and slender frame in blue skinny jeans ,a plain black top, sky high heels and a leopard print scarf. The movie star manages to team "comfort" and "sexy" well. Although a simple outfit we think Zoe looks great while she runs errands and completes her everyday tasks. Lea, is plunged into cooler conditions and this is evident by the coat she has chosen to wear, judging from Lea's coat we can conclude that she looks... comfortable. Whilst both of these gorgeous girls stick to neutral tones, we personally prefer Zoe Saldana's sexy look.

Fashion Miss

Oh dear, whilst Zoe Saldana looks as though she is trapped in a candy cane, Lea Michele has been infected with baby pink disease. These ladies have rendered us speechless (and we all know that doesn't happen often), and not in the good way. Where were the stylists? Where were their minds at? Now this fashion miss is hard...But... after much debating Zoe is caught by the Fashion Miss' evil grasp, because she looks as though she has picked a picnic blanket straight of the grass, stitched it in all the wrong places and thrown it on. Meaning Lea has not been caught by the Fashion Miss

Fashion miss: Zoe Saldana
Category winner: Lea Michele

The scores have been counted and verified and we can now reveal that... with three categories to one. Zoe Saldana wins for her brave style choices and sometimes unmissable Red Carpet "WOW" moments.

Check back soon as Mila Kunis and Jessica Alba battle it out, who will become victorious, you'll just have to watch this space to find out.

ps. this blog post is intended in fun and we admire all of the celebrities in these Undercover Style Wars for their careers and their integrity.

Clean And Clear: Spot Control Kit,Review

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."

Confession: Although i know above all else it matters what is within our hearts, our souls, our minds..... It can be a knock to my confidence when i see pimples on my face and i have to face the many people i will see in a day.

I have personally struggled with acne for years now.....
I have tried the contraceptive pill
I have tried antibiotics
I have tried other branded spot treatments
I have tried, tea tree oil, witch hazel etc
....You name it I've tried it

Whilst my hand crafted substance of Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Honey, soothed my skin, and got rid of the small spots it did not have the same affect on those big spots. So upon wondering around my local boots one afternoon, i came across what would soon become a ray of sunshine.

The Clean and Clear: Spot Control Kit comes in a cheerful, easy to use 3 step system.

1.) Spot Control Cleanser

 Although this may not score points on the "Smell Scale" and does have the tendency to smell like you are walking through a chemical lab, the benefits far out way the odd smell. According to the instructions written on the box you are to "Apply to wet face and gently massage, avoiding eye area, rinse thoroughly and pat dry". This product makes me leaves my skin feeling refreshed
2.) Spot Control Moisturizer

"Use daily after cleansing. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily". Those of you who suffer from spots like myself will find it a hassle to get a good moisturizer that does not irritate your skin, or leave your skin with an oily residue. This stuff is not like the others.... although once again, like the cleanser it is ridden with chemicals, it makes my skin so soft.

 3.) Fast Acting Spot Treatment
This product is the almighty finale to this great trio. This stuff is worth its weight in gold for acne sufferers. You are to "apply invisible gel directly onto the spot". I put this on just before i sleep and all of those nasty little spots, medium spots, big spots are gone with.... no scarring... they have just disappeared without a trace. The only thing i don't like is that there is not more of it... because i adore this stuff.

Some of you may have read my "O Natural" post and gleaned that i love to make my own spot remedies and those that i have posted are great for getting rid of the occasional spot.... but let it be said that Clean and Clear: Spot Control Kit has got the "di bom digi bom di deng di deng digigi" and a wonderful kit.

An Aside....
You may be aware that we took a break..... well a rather large break..... we were not sitting there on our bums doing nothing, but discussing what the future is for UnderCoverStyleLover. We are NOT leaving Blogger and will be posting regularly but i have been pondering with the idea of creating a YouTube account and sharing my passion for clothing design and making with the world.

Another Aside....
I love nail polish and recently went out and purchased a rather large amount of Barry M nail polish, whoops(well it is Christmas , "The season to be jolly" and all of that, and nothing makes me more jolly than nail polish") With my purchase i received a Limited Edition full size Nail Glitter in Silver Glitter 149, which i have been using constantly on top of any and every nail polish i can find. I love this glitter nail polish on top of "Utilitarian" by TopShop. But i love it even more on top of Nude Beige by Models Own. It is just a great combination. Silver Glitter 149 by Barry M and Nude Beige by Models Own are truly the Romeo and Juliet of  Nail Polish pairings (well, kinda)

See you very soon....
