Every second Saturday I round up the highlights from the last two weeks just in case you missed anything (considerate, I know) . Here’s what’s been going on in the beauty world lately…
There were several products reviewed on the blog these last two weeks, including a review on Make Up For Ever’s Ultra HD Foundation, a revamp of the cult classic original. Stila’s new Got Inked Cushion Liner in Copper Ink was also a hit, along with the Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascara* that ended up probably being the biggest hit of the summer for me so far! The Tata Harper Limited Edition Honey Blossom Resurfacing Mask* was featured and took face masks to a new place for me, plus it smells like absolute heaven.
It was Monthly Beauty Favourites time last week, with highlights like Buxoms Customizable Eyeshadow Bar, and Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk *which FYI really is as good as they all say it is.
There was also a part two to my Luxury Products Worth the Price post, with some amazing beauty bits worth the splurge. Things like Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream (it IS magical!) and MV Organic Skincare Hand Rescue* (possibly the nicest hand cream I’ve used)
Wish list to reality:
I finally got my hands on the Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Love Hangover, which promptly got swatched, trialled and reviewed. I also came into possession of a product I’ve lusted after since release, the Charlotte Tilbury FilmStar Bronze and Glow*, which I posted on Instagram. Even the darn box is gorgeous!
Lastly, my 14 year old self had a little squeal of delight when I saw that Hard Candy was releasing some of their original nail polish shades for their 20th anniversary. No surprise I had to pick up the baby blue shade Sky, complete with rubber heart ring – which happened to be the very shade I drooled over too many years ago to count. I think I’ll have a night where I do my nails in this shade, bust out a baby tee and skater skirt, watch Empire Records and listen to Mazzy Star. Whatever.
How was your week? What was the highlight for you?
