My current favourite nude lipsticks

17th October 2015
nude lipsticks

I really love nude lipsticks. I dread to think how many nude lip products I’ve bought over the years, it’s like an addiction. Since I was 17 I’ve had a tube of MAC’s C-thru on the go, I wish there was a way of knowing how many I had purchased over the years, but on the basis that I use about 4 – 5 a year I must have had 40 – 50 which is just … Insane.

It’s a hard task picking my favourites, but I’ve managed to select six which I love. Some of them are old faithfuls and others new additions I’m really liking currently.

Red lipsticks for Autumn

17th October 2015
red lipsticks

I’m a big fan of red lipsticks and have accumulated a bit of a collection of lipsticks and glosses in various red shades. As we approach Autumn, I’m finding myself reaching for these more and more. So have narrowed down my favourites which I’m using most at the moment.

Lush Cosmetics Christmas & Halloween haul

3rd October 2015
Lush Cosmetics Christmas

I’ve been excitedly awaiting the Lush Cosmetics Christmas and Halloween collection. But was a little disappointed after sneaking a peak at the US site and seeing some of my old favourites weren’t coming back this year. Especially the Northern Lights bubble bar!.

However when I saw on Instagram the collection was in-store, I took a slight detour after work. And visited the newly refurbished Cardiff Lush store to check it out. Somewhat predictably my disappointment soon vanished when I saw and smelled the new (and returning) products.

What was supposed to be picking up a pumpkin bubble bar quickly turned into a haul. And I now can’t wait to try all of these.

Daily skincare staples

29th September 2015
pixi glow tonic

I’ve posted recently about a few new skincare products I’ve tried and loved. But I wanted to share the products which I use daily or a few times a week, without fail. After switching between acid toners, I’ve found Pixi Glow Tonic to be my favourite. I swear by Emma Hardie’s Amazing Face moringa cleansing balm. And I’m obsessed with the Blue Lagoon skincare I’ve tried.

Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum

30th August 2015
Pure Hyaluronic Serum

One of my biggest beauty bugbears is having to do my make up in the morning when I’ve just woken up, my skin looks dull and puffy. Just an hour makes a world of difference, on the weekends when I get up slightly later and have more time, my make up always looks so much better and seemingly lasts for longer. Because of this, I’m always on the look out for products which can help. I find toning helps the skin appear more refreshed and I love my acid toners, so a feature in August’s Vogue on Hyaluronic Acid (HA) caught my eye. I was really excited to get my hands on Pestle & Mortar’s Pure Hyaluronic Serum to try out, one of the products featured in Vogue which is a hydrating serum formulated with HA.

I’ve been applying this serum each morning and I love the results!

Natural Skincare With from Antipodes Featuring Worship Serum – My Get Well Skincare Routine

17th August 2015
Worship

I’ve been ill for seemingly the past 4324234 years with a really persistent cold. I’m tired and it shows, my skin and hair look dull.

At times like these I try to incorporate more raw organic food into my diet, like green juices and lots of fruit and veg. In pretty perfect timing, I was sent Antipodes new Worship serum, a certified organic (and Vegetarian Society approved) serum which combats signs of early ageing and skin damage from the elements.
