Jane Iredale Golden Shimmer Face & Body Lotion
I touted this yesterday as my replacement for Strobe- BIG call, but it is. It's the golden version, which is perfect for all skin types- I've sometimes found Strobe to be a bit slick, & conversely, not hydrating. This gem from Jane Iredale contains elderflower, blackberry, and green and white tea extracts; so it not only feels divine, it smells AMAZING. It can be used on the face all over, or in the areas you'd like to highlight- or on your bod if you want to look like a golden babe. It's not a tanner, and it's not glittery, it just gives a lovely sheen with a hint of shimmer. It's limited edition, so I'm going to have to stock up, as should you. Stocked in beauty spas only, click on the link below to find a stockist- you can thank me later.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade
My brows are such a mare that I've had an MUA throw down his brushes in exasperation and scream, "I CAN'T work with these brows". That really happened, and I bear no grudge. He's now Adele's MUA, but that's another story. Brow powder alone does nothing, and no gel keeps them in place. So when I tried this, and it worked perfectly, I nearly keeled over in shock and joy. It is MAGICAL. There is NOTHING like it. It's waterproof, it doesn't smudge, it's super easy to work with (I use MAC #266 Angle Brush)- and it comes in 8 different shades. If sculpted, defined brows are your jam, you'll love this. I will never, EVER use anything else- fact.
Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color High Gloss Nail Lacquer
Absolutely loving my new Elizabeth Arden nail polish. It's called "Sailor Girl", and is the perfect blue; muted enough to wear to the office but bold enough to add that splash of colour. It has a great formula, quick drying and easy to apply with the curved brush. It's from Elizabeth Arden's Summer Escape 2014, which also has an amazing coral colour called "Ahoy" - totally next on my list! ~ by Ashleigh Findlay, admin superstar.
LUSH Ro's Argan Body Conditioner
Everyone knows how good LUSH smells- it's like the best sensory experience ever, and this product takes it to a whole other level. This is a body conditioner, aka, you use it like a hair conditioner- but on your bod. Pop this on in the shower, rinse off, and then gently pat dry. Not only will you smell like a goddess; but your skin will feel SO soft and moisturised for hours thanks to the argan oil, almond oil, cocoa butter and shea butter it contains. Speaking of hours, the scent lasts for ages- it's described as being "rose scented jam", and that's exactly right. You really need to go instore and have a sniff- maybe even a hand treatment, because it's just beautiful.
Schwarzkopf LIVE Color Ultra Bright Range
I have dreams about having this kind of hair colour, I honestly do. Unfortunately there are two things preventing me (a) I'm a little old and (b) my hairdresser Kate would kill me if I traded in my dark brown extensions. However, I can still covet bright hair in my imagination- and admire it on others. Schwarzkopf already have three colours (purple, pink and blue) in this range, and they've just added two more in Raspberry Rebel and Pillar Box Red. They're semi-permanent colours, so you don't have to worry about things going awry as they'll wash out after 6-8 washes. There's also no nasty ammonia or peroxide- and it contains Vitamin B5 to give your hair a nice boost of hydration and shine. Plus, they're cheap- $8.99! The new shades aren't available until mid October...but I may have some to give away ;) Actually, look, I DO have some to giveaway. If you'd like to try some, let me know below in the comments!
Elizabeth Arden's Flawless Finish Mousse Makeup
So light.. such coverage.. LOVE! This mousse formula is so lightweight and easy to work with, and a little definitely goes a long way. When I say a little, that is all it takes. Such a thin layer blurs all imperfections, brightens complexion, evens out skin tone, and creates a gorgeous, second skin like effect. The beauty of it is, although that first, fine layer creates an almost flawless base, it still has the flexibility of being build-able. Each layer intermingles, and settles quite comfortably without caking, nor does it cling to drier areas. It’s a very soft, refined and weightless finish, with a slightly velvety texture that feels soft on my drier skin, however I feel it would be very versatile to most skin types.~ by admin superstar Annah
