A different type of post today!
A guest post from the Lorna from Studs and Dreams.
Lorna has a lovely and relatively new blog (only 2 months old!) which consists of great outfit posts plus some beauty posts in the mix! So make sure to go and have a look!
Garnier Ambre Solaire After Sun
This product has been a life saver for me while on holiday and while I’ve been back. It applies nicely and does exactly what it says on the tin. The only after sun I’ve used for years! I burn really easily and usually peel a lot and so always need a huge bottle of this stuff. I took it away for a week and I’ve still got plenty left.
Lush Handy Gurugu Hand Cream
I’ve had this product for quite a while now but it’s my favourite hand cream by far and I’ll definitely be repurchasing when this runs out or runs out of date. It’s the most perfect moisturising hand cream. I generally use this at night before I go to bed by applying quite a lot to allow it to sink in overnight. I’ve also been peeling slightly on one of my hands since I got back from my holiday and this has worked a treat to subside the peeling!
HD Brows Brow Kit
I received this in a Glossy Box quite a while ago and have been in love ever since. I never used to fill in my eye brows at all but now all I can wonder is what on earth was I thinking! It frames your face so much more and really adds to the overall look of your makeup. I definitely wouldn’t go out without having them done now, completely adds to my confidence. I’ve actually got the one for blondes, which clearly I am not but I don’t actually find this a problem as the darkest shade is my shade anyway and I can just use the rest as eye shadows.
E.L.F Mineral Eyeliner Brush
This is actually the brush that I use to apply the HD Brows product to my eye brows. I lost the one that I received with the product, I think I may have accidently binned it which I was gutted about at the time but now I’ve got this one I’m not really bothered. I got this one in one of the Mineral brush sets and actually couldn’t recommend these brushes more.
Barry M Intense Black Eyeliner Pen
This is my favourite eyeliner of all time. I’ve tried other more expensive brands of which I am determined to find one I like better but for the moment I always go back to this one. It’s super black which is probably one of the reasons I like it so much and I find it lasts pretty well when I wear it.
Travalo Perfume Atomiser
I got this for my birthday after knowing I wouldn’t want to take a huge heavy perfume bottle away with me on holiday. This is perfect! It’s so easy to use (even though it took me a while to work out how to get the lid off the perfume, oops!) and I would definitely repurchase for other perfumes. I filled this with my favourite perfume Daisy by Marc Jacobs!
Balance Me Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve
I picked this up with the most recent copy of Glamour magazine after hearing a bit about it in the wonderful blogging world! I’m not usually a fan of a rose scent actually but this has totally grown on me and now I love it. It’s the most perfect lip balm as it smells beautiful and keeps your lips beautifully soft at the same time, what more could you ask for? I will definitely be picking up a few more copies of Glamour as I could never justify paying full price for this.
MAC Lipstick in Shy Girl
This is my first ever MAC purchase and I definitely don’t regret it! I always knew that I wanted one of their lipsticks after hearing so many great things about them and it just came down to getting round to buying one and choosing the shade. I had planned to go to a counter and try on a few shades but I saw them at just over £10 on Debenhams and so knew it was fate! I decided to pick up Shy Girl after hearing so many good things about it and perusing over the swatches a lot. It was quite an unusual shade choice for me because if I wear a lipstick I usually go all out and wear a bright but I really wanted to try something different. I wasn’t so sure of it when I first bought it but after forcing myself to wear it (I really wanted to love it) I shortly fell in love with it and can’t stop myself wearing it constantly! The formulation is beautiful. I will definitely be picking another one up soon.
Pixi Glow Tinkerbell Fairytale Nail Polish
I’m in love with this shade! It’s the most perfect bright pink that looks great with a tan or without. I’m not shy with neon’s and bright’s which is probably why I love this so much. It has got a hint of a golden shimmer in the bottle but this doesn’t really transfer onto the nails, which I’m happy about as I much prefer a shade without shimmer. It comes out more on the matte side but to combat this I just apply a topcoat over it as I think it gives it a much better finish. The formulation of the nail polish is great and I definitely want to try out some of their other polish shades.
Benefit Cha Cha Tint
I picked this up near Christmas time with a £10 off voucher as I’m a big fan of all of Benefit’s tints. I’ve recently rediscovered it and I think it works perfectly for the summer (if only we had a better one!). The colour looks quite daunting in the bottle but transfers beautifully onto the skin. The price also appears quite daunting but this will last me forever. I’ve been using much smaller bottles of the other tints and I haven’t even come close to finishing them so I can’t imagine finishing this one up in a hurry.
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish
This is a staple in the majority of people’s skincare routine within the blogging world and I can see why. I have both mini versions and a full-size and I’m loving it. It works beautifully into the skin and cleans it properly. I’ve always been a face wipe kind of girl, but after learning how bad they are for your skin I’ve been trying to shy away from using them and in place of that I have been using this and it definitely works wonders.
Some great products from Lorna and also some of my own favourites such as the Travalo, HD Brows Kit and the pepto bismol coloured Pixi Glow nail polish!
