Hello my little munchkins! I hope you all had a lovely Valentines’ Day over the weekend, whether you spent it with a loved one or – like me – stayed in watching documentaries and ordering a Chinese by yourself (living the dream 2K16).
I might not have been showered with cards or gifts, but I have luckily had all of the above goodies added to my makeup bag so far this month. #THEBOYDIDGOOD… And by ‘boy’ I obviously mean a few nice brands and, er, myself – sorry bank balance.
First up, I was recently sent a haircare range from WEN. WEN is a haircare range developed by US stylist Chaz Dean (who doesn’t love a chaz?) and as well as the WEN Re-Moist Intense Hair Treatment*, the WEN Anti-Frizz Styling Cream* and WEN Replenishing Mist* featured, I also have a couple of other products (including the revolutionary-sounding Cleansing Conditioner) to try out. This stuff smells DIVINE, so I’m really looking forward to giving it a go.
At the start of the month, I went for a makeover with Stila cosmetics at Selfridges in Birmingham, and was lucky enough to receive a couple of the products I tried out afterwards. First up is the Stila Stay All Day Foundation*, which is a heavy-duty full coverage foundation designed to allow your skin to breathe. I also received the Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner* and one of the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks in ‘Dolce’*, which is a gorgeous nude shade that does. Not. Budge. I really love all of the products so far, and will have some full reviews coming soon.
On a recent trip to Boots, I couldn’t resist adding a few lip products into my basket – and yes, of course they’re nude lip products (I like what I like, ya get me). I already have a couple of the Maybelline Color Sensational Nude Lipsticks and I LOVE them for their strong pigmentation and glossy finish. I picked up another shade, ‘Sultry Sand’, which is a bit foundation-lip but I still kind of love it. I also got one of the legendary Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipliners – I think this is the ‘Cappuccino’ shade, but I can’t be 100% sure as I’m in bed and can’t possibly get up to check. I know, I’m dedicated.
The trend for grey/silver hair still seems to be going strong, and I was SO excited to see that a seemingly new brand, Colour Freedom, have brought out a whole range of grey hair dyes that are available from Superdrug. They have kindly sent me the Colour Freedom Metallic Glory Silver Blonde* to try out, and I’m SO excited. My posts reviewing various silver toners/dyes are still my most popular on here so I’ll definitely be posting a full review in the next week or two.
FINALLY, you might have noticed my gorgeous new ‘Claire’ makeup bag, which came as a lovely surprise gift from Clean & Clear. They also sent along their brand new product, the Hint of Tint Cover and Correct Cream*. I’m a big fan of tinted moisturisers/BB creams on holiday and during the summer, so I’m looking forward to trying this out and will of course report back A$AP Rocky.
Have you tried any of these products before? Let me know in the comments!
