I haven’t done one of these posts for a really long time, but some stellar products have launched this week, so I thought it was worth flagging them up.
First up, bareMinerals Complexion Rescue. I’ve used this almost daily since I received the sample and I absolutely love it! Regular readers will know that every BBB day starts with a dog walk and this is the product that I put on in the morning for a complexion smoothing, light tint to my skin. It’s a gel-cream consistency, does a little bit of a blur thing and basically makes bare skin look better, but not too made up. It also delivers a whack of hydration and is SPF30. I am dreading running out! You can find it HERE for £26.
Illamasqua Gel Sculpt is contouring made easy. It’s the best contour stick I’ve come across that just takes all the stress out of contouring. The shade, when you look at it at first is weird… it’s almost black, but the gel formula means that it translates to a ‘shadow’ on the face that gives you cheekbones that you thought you could only dream of. I am such a fan of this for anyone (including myself) who’s ever looked at a contouring tutorial and thought, life is just too short. It’s £22 HERE.
Remember when I blogged this gorgeous little vanity bag from Paul & Joe. It’s just so pretty and actually quite sturdy, too.. .it’s just made an entrance on ASOS for £23 HERE.
Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules
I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
The gorgeous Rouge Edition Aquas (six shades) have also recently launched onto ASOS – they’re water-feeling glosses with plenty of shine and lighter than feathers on the lip. Perfect for anyone who loves that kind of cool feeling gloss and sheen without the gloopiness. They’re £8.99 HERE.
Ever since I got my samples, I’ve been wearing these creamy colour pops from Clinique. They’re billed as a primer and lipstick in one, but mainly what I get from them is a lip softening and conditioning feel and a gorgeous colour. I can’t say the primer element means you need to apply less – if anything, because they’re so melty and creamy, you need to apply more, but you won’t catch me complaining about this. They’re ideal for anyone who has dry lips or who finds regular lipsticks drying. They’re £16 each HERE and hugely recommended by me.Hylamide SubQ
I blogged this a few weeks ago (HERE) and have been slathering it on daily ever since.. I’ve had so many compliments on my skin that I can’t do anything other than completely recommend it. If you’ve ever used BioEffect, it gives a similar effect to that but obviously doesn’t have any of the EGF element. Hylamide SubQ gives skin the best surge of hyaluronic and the effects are completely obvious. I never say this, but just buy it! It’s £30 HERE (use it under your regular moisturiser, although I must admit I’ve been using it on its own).
