It's been a minute since I've spoken beauty and to be real.. I miss it
As always there's been lots of new products I've been trying and loving, so today I'm going to share some of them with you.
The Zoeva Warm Spectrum Palette has been in my 'to review' pile for so long it's ridiculous. I don't know why it took me so long to try these shadows, the reality is this palette is a selection of tones I gravitate towards when it comes to my eye make up choices - there's a great mix of matte and shimmer shadows which surprisingly blend beautifully once applied. I must say the pigment of these eyeshadows is incredible - I know Zoeva are amazing when it comes to brushes but I haven't tried much from their make up line, these however have really impressed me lately.
I've been using many mascaras as always, I'm forever on the hunt for the perfect one which gives me enough, length, volume and all around drama. The Shock is the latest offering from YSL and one that doesn't disappoint. I love the intensity of this mascara, if you're a fan of the shocking mascara you're going to love this!
Lip care and lip prep has become such an essential step for me and there are two products which have been incorporated into my daily make up routine. First up are the new MAC Lip Scrubtious, oh how I adore these! This lip scrub is sugar based, fabulous for exfoliating the lips, removing dead skin and it smells amazing - This is the Candied Nectar one, they come in 4 other scents. Clarins Instant Light Comfort Lip Oil, where have you been all my life? No words can express my love for this product, if you haven't tried this you really must. As far as lip hydration goes this is as good as it gets. This lip oil isn't slippery in consistency instead, super nourishing and leave my lips feeling soft for hours.
I've strayed away from my matte lip products and I've been loving lipstick again. First up is MAC's Toast & Butter Liptensity Lipstick, I adore the consistency of these lippies. They're hydrating, creamy and offer great colour pay off that last for hours. I have quite a few of these but this is the latest colour I picked up, it's a gorgeous chocolate brown and typically the tone I go for.
Beauty Pie you've won me over. At first I wasn't so sure how I felt about this make up members club but since playing with some of the products I honestly think it's something to consider and something I would urge friends and family to - You pay a monthly subscription and get beauty products at a fraction of the price? Or you can pay full price, either way it's a fab concept. You know I love a good highlighter and the 'Pro Glow Highlighter in Cosmic Shine' is divine, it gives your skin such a beautiful, radiant finish and I adore it. The other product that I've tried and was wow'd by is their satin lipstick, 'Knockout Punch' is a beautiful dusky rose lipstick which is creamy in texture and sits beautiful on the lips.
I've really got in to Clarins beauty products lately and the sculpting palette is one of my go to products right now. It allows you to softly sculpt and define the face, while adding enough colour. The pigment of the powders is beautiful.
Scents for the home and scents for me. Diptyque's Noisetier is my current candle of choice, it's warm, rich and leaves the home smelling simply divine. It's not my usual preferred Dyptique candle but I adore it. Jo Malone's Pomegrante Noir is one of the sexiest fragrances I've worn - there's something so special about it, it's sweet but with an edge of masculinity and I love it.
What have you guys been loving lately? I'm missing on YouTube because my filming camera was stolen during my trip to Mauritius and I'm yet to replace it.
I hope you lot are well..
Lots of Love
