What's this? A beauty post???
This year I want to kick my blog up a notch and produce some different content from what I am used to. As much as I love doing outfit posts, the crappy English weather and dull winter days make it really difficult to get anything other than 1 post a week up. I was playing around with my new 50mm lens at the weekend taking pictures of my make up so I decided to do a post featuring some faves from 2014.
Lush Bathbombs- Bit late on the bus with this one! I tried Lush products a few years back and my horrendous sensitive skin had a field day with a couple of their bathbombs. Red, itchy skin after taking a bath is not the one, however I have since found that some Lush products I am ok with (usually the ones without the glitter and dried flower mess inside). This one is called 'sexbomb' and smells exactly like parma violets...HELLO childhood!
The Body Shop Strawberry Hand Cream- Oh my sweet sugary heaven this smells devine. It does exactly what it needs too without being greasy and the scent lingers on your hands for ages after applying. It is such a nice product to have in your handbag....I am now tempted to buy the body butter (and perhaps everything else in this scent).
Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt cologne- This hands down wins my absolute fave product of 2014. I first discovered Jo Malone at the start of last year (I know...last on the bus with this one too) and instantly fell in love with their unusual and luxurious scents. Every time I accidently (on purpose) stumble through Selfridges I find myself wandering over to the counter to have a smell.
Wood Sage and Sea Salt is a fresh, woody scent but is still super girly.
I have also recently discovered their 'Cologne Intense' collection and they are all so beautiful but at £100 for a bottle I might have to keep them on the wishlist for now.
Make Up Revolution Sugar & Spice Palette- What is not to love about this brand. Blush, contour and highlight shades all in one palette and for £6 I think it's an absolute steal. All of the shades are amazingly pigmented and relatively long lasting for the price. I have tried a few things from Make Up Revolution this year and I have to say I am mega impressed, especially with their nail varnishes. (Sorry for not swatching...but rubbish at this beauty blogging malarkey!)
