Beauty buys

I haven’t blogged for a little while, I’m sorry to say. I have been so busy with work and things so its been tricky to find the time. But, I’m well and truly back to it! Promise.

I thought it would be good to share my most recent favourite beauty purchases.

Firstly, I found this gloss and shine product by Tony and Guy, I have never tried any of their products or had my hair cut with them before so I am only going on hearsay. I’m usually a committed frizz ease customer. I use it as an attempt to make my often, frazzled split ends soft and silky. At nearly £1 cheaper (I know, bargain!) I thought I’d give Tony and Guy a go.

I’m getting on with it quite well. I prefer the smell of the frizz ease one but this is much lighter and it seems to last the whole day without building up, keeping a nice shine all day.

The next one is this nail varnish by Rimmel, colour black cherries. It is a great alternative to a black. that can sometimes be quite harsh. It also picks up on the metallic trends going around at the moment.
I find it perfect with creams and whites. I bought a new cream quilted sweater (I will blog about in the next few days) which I wore with my freshly painted nails today. I think the colour contrast is perfect and adds a subtle pop of colour in a really subtle, soft way. I also love love love the fact that these dry in 60secs! It’s a must have!

Lastly, is the latest addition to my lipstick family. Again, it’s another beauty from our friends at Rimmel.

Even the name is perfection…tantrum.
I was looking for a deep red lipstick, that still has a pinky tone as I find my complexion best suits the pinker tones. I find it is far less harsh. This one lasts almost the entire day, which is amazing as I almost always have to constantly top up with other brands I’ve tried.

Lancôme and Alber Elbaz

For so long I have dreamt of finding the perfect mascara. Anyone that knows me, knows I am a big fan of eye makeup of the mascara variety, so it’s not such a weird dream.
I have tried everything from Dior Show(a lot of people’s favourite) to Collection2000, to the million different types Rimmel comes out with each week, that Boots kindly place on offer. Few have come close. Other then Lancôme. For me it is by far the best.

It adds volume without being clumpy, curls and lengthens and I only ever have to apply once. I didn’t think It could get any better…I was wrong.
Lanvin’s Albar Elbaz has hand illustrated a whole range of Lancôme collectables. Never have I loved makeup packaging more.
This mascara is £23, in Selfridges from June 15th. Limited time only apparently so I may have to fight you for one.
