New In from NARS and Estée Lauder


I bought a few new products by NARS and Estée Lauder that I think are pretty exciting so thought you might like to see them and I've done a few swatches too.


The NARS Long Hot Summer Palette (£34 at NARS Online) is one of the best palettes I've seen for ages. It's very small and travel sized, perfect for taking away on your summer holidays. I would use all of the shades in this palette as they are taupe and bronze based. There's a mix of cool and warm tones in this palette too. I think the pigmentation is great on these and when I tried them out on my eyes, the colours go on just as they are on my arm and are very smooth and blendable. 


Delivery costs £7 on the NARS website and I hate paying for delivery. I'd rather buy another product to get free delivery, even if that adds another £32 to my basket! Crazy logic or what?! I've been interested in trying something from the Hot Sand collection so ended up with the Hot Sand/Laguna Blush Bronzer Duo (£32 at NARS Online). I already knew that Laguna is one of the best bronzers out there as I've had it before and Hot Sand works beautifully as a highlight that complements the bronzer very well. My hand swatch of Hot Sand isn't that great as there isn't enough light on it so you'll have to trust me when I say it's a fab product! Obviously as a highlight, I'd apply it with a much lighter hand than this swatch!




Something I spotted in Boots the other day then couldn't stop thinking about was the Estée Lauder Genuine Glow Eyelighting Creme in 02 Bare Blush (£16 at Debenhams). It's a gorgeous subtle but glowy pale highlighter shade that I think will be perfect for when I'm on holiday. It's designed for both the eyes and cheeks so I'll definitely try it on both! There are two other shades available but this one seemed best for pale skin. I love the clicky pen and sponge applicator. You can just dab this on to the skin and blend with fingertips. I actually used Boots Advantage Card points to buy this so I'm extra happy with this purchase!

June Favourites - 2016


It's been a while since I wrote a monthly favourites post but I've been loving a lot of new stuff lately so thought you might like to hear about what I was loving in June.


Clarins Fix' Make-Up (£23 at Boots) - I was looking for a new makeup fixing spray after running out of my MAC Fix+ and I was almost going to buy one of the Urban Decay sprays but then I spotted the reformulated Fix' Make-Up on the new products stand at Clarins. I sprayed it and just loved the fresh rose scent and I loved the expensive looking glass bottle so I bought it. I've been using it every single day since I got it and I just love it. It's a really refreshing step after applying makeup and I feel like it sets everything nicely, including powder products. I'll be honest, I can't really tell if it makes my makeup last longer or not but I love this step in my routine so I don't care!

Clarins Double Serum (£55 at Boots) - I'd fancied trying this for a long time and ended up buying it on a bit of a whim back in May. For the first two weeks of using it, I didn't really notice much of a difference to my skin but after that I felt like my skin got so much smoother and my pore size seemed reduced. It improves the texture of my skin so much and I notice the difference in my skin if I go a few days without using it. It's not the most hydrating of serums though so I tend to use this during the day and something more hydrating at night. I've noticed this gets used up pretty fast and I only have a little bit left now so we'll see how my skin gets on when I try other things and I may come back to this!

Clarins Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion (£20.50 at Boots) - This toner is amazing on my skin as I feel like this adds some moisture as well as preparing my skin for serum and moisturiser. It is a liquid with a silky feel to it, as if it has a bit of serum in there. It leaves the skin feeling fresh and clean without stripping it.


Odacité Eye Contour Serum (£33 at Cult Beauty) - This product that I got in a Cult Beauty goody bag has come in extremely handy and I'm so glad I got the chance to try it. My current eye cream (Clarins Eye Contour Balm) doesn't give me the hydration I'm used to around my eye area but I didn't really want to splash out on another product so I've been mixing the Odacité Eye Contour Serum into it and it does a brilliant job at adding a shot of moisture. I also love using it on it's own at night for a more concentrated hydration hit. My skin drinks it straight up!

Sunday Riley Flora (£70 at Space NK) - Sunday Riley oils are pretty expensive but I've found that they really do deliver good results. This one is my go-to night oil and it's perfect for hydrating my dry skin. I could definitely use this during the day too as it sinks straight in, I was just using up my Clarins first. My skin feels so good in the morning when I've had this on overnight. It contains so many different rose extracts, I thought it would smell nice, however it doesn't really smell of rose that much. This doesn't bother me though and I would totally recommend this, despite it's £70 price tag.


Shay & Blue Salt Caramel Fragrance (£55 at M&S) - This is one of my favourite product discoveries of the year! I just love a good sweet scent and this takes it to a whole new level. It's actually a really unique scent, it's sweet but sophisticated and sexy too. It has notes of caramel, tonka bean, bourbon vanilla and sea salt. I urge you to smell this if you like sweet scents and are looking for something different from the usual scents in Boots, Debenhams etc. Shay & Blue is available in M&S, John Lewis and Fenwick. They have a candle in this scent too and I really want it!

This Works Skin Deep Dry Leg Oil (£39.50 at Space NK) - This was a pricey purchase but I've been suffering with dry skin on my legs and after trying some of this on my hand, I was amazed at how it instantly moisturises the skin. This is perfect on my legs and makes them look healthy and glowing. It doesn't sting if you use it straight after shaving either. It's a dry oil so you don't have to stand around naked for ages, waiting for it to dry and all of the essential oils make it very relaxing to use. I love the smell of it. 


MAC Soft Serve Shadow in Put Me To Shame (£16 at MAC) - The Soft Serve eyeshadows come in the same packaging as the Paint Pots but they are more of a spongy, cream to powder texture. They are also less pigmented than Paint Pots but I've been loving the Put Me To Shame shade which is a shimmery, cool toned, metallic taupe. It's very flattering on my eyes with my skin tone. 


Laura Mercier Baked Blush Illume in Rosé (£30 at House of Fraser) - I bought this when I had some points to spend in Space NK and noticed the beautiful marbled rose pan on the 'New In' stand. It's a gorgeous shimmering mix of pink, bronze and icy white that creates a glowing rose gold shade on the cheeks. It also has a few silver glittery bits but nothing too crazy. I can definitely pull this off during the day. It's just so dreamy to look at and to use!

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Collection (with swatches)


You probably know by now that I'm a massive Charlotte Tilbury fan and own half of her products, so I was obviously looking forward to her latest launch called Hot Lips! 12 new lipsticks in a mix of the K.I.S.S.I.N.G and the Matte Revolution formulas, inspired by various celebrities, with £1 from the sale of each lipstick going to charity. It truly is a fab collection. 


I knew I was going to have a difficult time narrowing down my choices and when I got a link to a VIP presale, I decided to treat myself to an early Birthday present and buy the whole lipstick wardrobe! Good excuse right?!

Anyway, enough of the talking as I'm fairly sure you're here for the close-up photos and swatches as you already know about the new collection! I hope you find this post useful and I'd love to hear which lipsticks you purchase.
