I'm always obsessing over beauty products and make up - hence one of the many reasons for starting this blog. But it takes a while for me to let something into my inner beauty circle of trust. It's not always love at first sight; I like to see if a products actually works for me. I'm currently obsessing over the following gorgeous products and they are fast becoming firm favourites of mine. You know the ones; the trusty products we reach for on a daily basis and those faithful friends that when they start to get low: give us a mini panic attack. And why do they always run out at the same time? So annoying - and expensive!
So anyway, here are my current beauty and make up obsessions.....
Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia Cologne
I adore this scent and have been wearing it for about the last 3 years. I love so many Jo Malone London scents, Wild Bluebell, Orange Blossom and Blackberry & Bay are all loves of mine but If I had to choose just one then English Pear and Freesia is always my winner. It reminds me of spring and summer as I usually stock up at the airport and then wear all holiday so this scent has some wonderful memories attached to it and makes me happy every time I wear it.
Clarins Light Comfort Lip Oil
I always reach for this everyday when I do my make up and always carry it with me. I love the high shine and plumpness it gives my lips. Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil, Lip Gloss & Lip Balm is so nourishing and hydrating and nothing short of wonderful. Its non sticky formula looks is lovely worn alone or layered over your lippy. It’s the best little pick me up when reapplied during the day.
Nars blusher in Unlawful
Move over orgasm there’s a new favourite in town. Unlawful blush by Nars is one of my staple make up items I wear this almost every day and absolutely love it. I love the coral tones which suit my summer complexion as my skin is slightly tanned. I raved about this in a previous blusher post which you can read here: Make Up Archives . and it has also featured in numerous instagram shots. I feel like I’m on a one woman campaign to promote this blusher and tell anyone who will listen how wonderful it is! And I’m not even being sponsored by Nars I just love it so much!
Rodial Dragons Blood Hyaluronic Night Cream
Impressive name huh? I love this night cream I’m on about my 3rd jar. I use this in the summer months as it really hydrating and soothing. Especially good if you’ve been out in the sun. It helps to plump out wrinkles, even out skin tone and leaves my skin looking healthy, smooth and clear in the morning. Dragon's Blood Night Hyaluronic Cream cream has a luxurious creamy texture and the lovely peachy scent really lingeres on my skin. I love applying this before bed it really makes me feel pampered. The whole Rodial Dragons blood range is wonderful and this one I am forever restocking.
Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzer
I almost dedicated a whole blog post to this idiylic cream – gel bronzer but never quite got around to writing it probably because I wasn’t sure where to start. CHANEL - SOLEIL TAN DE CHANEL bronzer is so versatile and can be applied several different ways to achieve different finishes. It comes in a large jar that will last you forever. I apply after my primer and concealer using a foundation brush; it gives a good semi - matt coverage and you can build up more colour gradually and even apply under foundation. I also like to mix it with my day moisturiser and buff into my skin using a large bronzing brush to give a light dewy finish. I’ve been wearing this everyday and I can see it long being part of my summer make up routine
What products are you currently obsessing over? Any you can't live without?
Have a wonderful weekend
