Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Peach Club, available here
I ignored these when they first came out but I was browsing Boots on my lunch break one day when there was a 3 for 2 offer on and I just fell in love with this colour. I’m really liking peachy orange tones at the moment and this is a great shade, not too orange but just the right amount of peach for the spring. I love the formula too, it dries matte and lasts for hours.
Rimmel Exaggerate lipliner in East End Snob, available here
I’ve been using this lipliner a lot over the past month. I’ve either been using it on its own or with another lipstick on top. I love the matte finish that it gives and the colour is the perfect ‘my lips but better’ nude pink.
Chanel Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle, available here
I’ve been using this lipstick on top of the aforementioned lipliner, it’s almost the same colour and with the two combined, my lip colour can last all day. I hadn’t used this lipstick in a while as the Chanel formula isn’t my favourite, however over a lipliner it’s perfect.
Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise cologne, available here
This is the first Jo Malone cologne that I tried and it was love at first sniff. I tried it in the Covent Garden store and loved it immediately so I asked for it for my birthday. I’ve had so many compliments when I’ve been wearing this – I even had a woman ask if she could sniff me when I was at the pub. The scent lasts all day, especially if I spray it in my hair.
Yves Rocher Serum Vegetal night cream*, available here
My skin has been pretty dry lately with the cold weather, wind and the central heating wreaking havoc. I needed a moisturiser that was thicker than my usual Clinique favourite so when I heard about this one with a built in serum, I was so excited to try it. Luckily, it lives up to its promises and it’s rehydrated my skin and has kept the horrible dry patches at bay. I love Yves Rocher, I’ve been a fan ever since I received one of their Grande Rouge lipsticks in a goody bag a couple of years ago and I now have quite a collection of their products. I always make sure I pop into a store when I’m in Paris!
Bourjois Poudre de Riz de Java, available here
This is my favourite powder ever. If I don’t feel like I need any extra coverage, this is what I always reach for to set my make up. It’s an illuminating translucent powder, so it gives your skin the most amazing subtle glow. It’s scented which isn’t something I’d usually be into but I absolutely love it – it’s a kind of powdery, floral, ‘granny’ smell. I’m onto my second pot of this stuff and I’ll definitely be buying it for years to come!
