Feeling in a slightly spendy mood, after all the recent Christmas shopping, there were a few things on my own list. Two (kind of) essential and three impulsive. Thrilled with my latest buys, I felt they should definitely feature on my pages.
It seems Diptyque’s candles are a must-have to any beauty blogger’s lifestyle kit. After burning and loving Baies, I wanted to try another. Spoilt for choice, Mimosa was added to my SpaceNK basket and promptly delivered to my door. It smells amazing, fresh and floral. I am not sure how long this will stay unlit for….
Keeping on top of my brow routine and having them looking more polished, I wanted some tweezers that work, I mean really work. Something sharp. The only choice were Tweezerman, I opted for the mint green mini ones. They are perfect. Complete with storage tube, make these brow perfectors ideal to keep in your bag. They do a great job and I actually use them. They are so sharp that they whip out even the toughest, most stubborn hairs with minimal pain. All this time I used waxing and gave up with the tweezers. It turns out I just needed some ultra sharp ones.
In the mood to try a new highlighter, Topshop’s Glow was a great choice. A pretty pot of well, golden glow. Creamy and easy to blend. Another welcome addition to an ever-growing highlighter collection. Although sadly I did drop the Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer which shattered to literally a million pieces, so this is a much cheaper replacement.
The last product winging its way to Norfolk, was Sephora’s Cream Lip Stain in Always Red. Hyped all over the blogger-sphere and for good reason. Highly pigmented and non-sticky giving you a classic red pout to rival Marilyn Monroe’s. Glossy and matte. I am in love with this stain. Perfect for Christmas time.
