Jules’ October Favourites

Maybelline Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter in 200 Medium* Good highlighters are unfortunately rather difficult to find at the drugstore, let alone in a subtle, creamy formula that isn’t full of chunky glitter. Luckily for me, Maybelline sent us their version so I put it to the test in a First Impressions video earlier in the year and was thrilled with the result! I’ve been using it regularly ever since but for some reason I keep forgetting to put it in my monthly favourites. The shade 200 is spot on for me – it gives the cheekbones a slightly peachy…

Favourite Five: Bold Summer Lip Colours

Best summer lip colours

Dior Addict Extreme in 536 Lucky Hands down, my favourite bright lipstick of all time in my favourite formula of all time. Dior just nail it with lipstick and although frighteningly expensive, they bring me so much joy that I don’t even mind eating baked beans for a few weeks after buying one. The beauty of this is that it’s extremely buildable, so you can wear it as a sheer wash of berry-coral or build it up for a full whack of glossy, glorious colour. The colour is extremely flattering (and I think would suit a lot of skin tones),…

Quick Reviews #29

Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate* You will by now have seen nothing but rave reviews for the 8th generation Double Serum, and, spoiler alert: you’re about to read another one! Having never used the previous iterations of Double Serum, I can’t make any comparisons between older and newer versions. However, what I can tell you is that the 8th generation release is one of the finest products I have used this year, if not the finest. It’s worth the hype, worth the price and it’s something I can see myself having in my routine for many moons to…

Quick Reviews #28 // New In From Elizabeth Arden

FourEver Bronze Bronzing Powder in ‘Medium’ I have been using this non-stop since we received it a few weeks ago, and I absolutely adore it. It creates a healthy, bronzed glow with a lovely, luminous finish that makes you look like you’ve just been on holiday. I swirl my brush around all four shades and the combined colour is perfect for my skin tone, but you can use obviously the shades separately if you wish (which makes it very handy for travelling as you don’t need to schlep a load of different products around with you.) It takes a lot…

Beauty Blogger Buys // 10 Things

I am always curious about products that beauty bloggers choose to buy, aren’t you? The ones they will happily pay for time and time again, despite being sent every product under the sun – now those are the products I want to know more about. With that in mind, I thought it might be interesting to give you an insight into the products that I happily pay for, and which might not usually get the praise they deserve. This post is dedicated to those products: the ones that are never mentioned in posts or in favourites videos because they’re never not…
