So, I don’t know a whole lot about beauty, and I won’t pretend to.
But I do know what I like and I don’t like, and what works for me and what doesn’t.
Maybe what works for me will work for you, who knows?
Here are my favourite beauty products from this month:
So I was in another city visiting family when I went and forgot to bring any foundation for an event we were going to that night. Emergency! I went to Boots and picked this up for a mere €8 (or thereabouts, I don’t quite remember). It’s so good! It gives a really matte coverage (although I still need to use a little powder over it on my T-zone).
It was such amazing value that I can hardly believe it! My only gripe is that I wish the packaging looked a little more classic, or pretty at least.
Ah well, you can’t have it all.
I switched to No 7’s night cream this month, and I really like it.
It doesn’t feel greasy or smothering, and it has a nice delicate smell. I love putting it on before I go to sleep!
This was a bit of a random buy – I found it on the Boots bargain shelf for a euro (hence the non-seasonal colour), but I really love it! It didn’t chip for quite a while and it adds a nice, much more expensive looking than it is, gloss to your nails.You guys. I am so in love with this lipstick. I can’t believe it was less than €6! It’s 17’s ‘stay pout’ lipstick in rule breaker. It’s a more vibrant pink on than it looks, and it just glides on the lips! Lipstick that doesn’t gives me dry lips is always a winner.
Last but not least, I love this wide-tooth comb by Mark Hill! I’ve had it for quite a few weeks now, and my aggressive knots have yet to get the better of it – I’d usually have broken at least one of the teeth by now. I use this to detangle my curls in the shower, and it’s working a treat!
