KOREAN SKINCARE DUPES
FOR HIGH END FAVOURITES #2

5 comments


I hinted at a second wave of dupes in Part 1 of my Korean Skincare Dupes, and today it's finally here! I'm really excited to share this post, as finding dupes in makeup and skincare is one of my most favourite past times, and the bunch I have today feel like a pretty good group. So for Kbeauty dupes of some high end, cult favourites, including quite a few that I think are actually better than their pricier counterpart, keep on reading!

From the same line as the coveted Korean 'wonder product', the J One Jelly Pack (review here), I've high hopes of today's subject matter, the corresponding J One Jelly Cushion foundation. I am a hardy cushion addict and this promises radiant, nourished, flawless skin, so let's see how it fares pitted against my cushion collection.

January might seem like the most obvious time of year for new resolutions but in practice it's quite possibly the worst! You feel the pressure of 'New Year New Start' and 'ruining' that if you slip up, you're mourning the festivities and comfort of the festive season and you've got a to-do list the length of your arm. I don't know if it's a school thing but I've always felt a natural opportunity to reconvene and reboot in September, so today I'm sharing 6 tips for making the most of the rest of your year.

HIGH END BEAUTY WORTH THE SPLURGE.

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I'm a sucker for high end beauty. But sometimes, the quality doesn't necessarily match the high price tag, so today I'm sharing a handful of my favourites that I think are really worth every penny.


AS-HEALTHY-AS-THEY-ARE-EASY
RASPBERRY CUPCAKES.

Sometimes, something a little sweet and unnecessarily dainty is just the thing we need. These little cakes are not only delicious but pretty damn healthy too, and will impress at any occasion.

Especially since my floral, rose-spiked Persian Love Cake, I've been really enjoying playing with cake and dessert recipes that are totally scrumptious but promise to be a little healthier for you, so today I wanted to share this recipe, adapted from my Nourish book, that really hits the spot. These cakes are nutty, sweet with fruit and full of nuts and fibre. They're an absolute doddle to whip up, and are gluten and refined-sugar free too!

As much as I adore summer, and I'm already getting sad at the shortening daylight hours, I'm so excited for autumn. I love the light, I love the weather, I love layering, and I love autumnal colours in fashion and makeup. Now that we've hit September, today I'm bringing you 7 beautiful lipsticks, to transition you from summer to fall, for every budget - whether you're looking to splurge, save or spend.

BLUSH CRUSH

It's a quick post today - I wanted to give a little mention to fashion, as it's something I rarely talk about on the blog! I'm obsessed with blush tones at the moment. It's a colour that will take you from Summer to Fall - a floaty teadress or lacy crop in the warmer weather and a cream knit tucked into a blush leather skirt (isn't the little wrap one below just divine?!) when the temperature starts to drop. Today I'm sharing some nude-pink inspo to quench your blush appetite.


I'm totally in love with the leather wrap skirt, the sporty bra and Jasmine-esque pyjamas!

What are your faves??

As you'll well know from my photography style - I. Love. Fresh. Flowers. I'm forever buying bunches at markets, or picking a bounty of hand cut blooms from the garden, just having them in the room brightens my day and lifts my mood.


NEW IN BEAUTY | WISHLISTING

7 comments

new-beauty-2016-fall-high-end-barely-there-beauty-chanel-teint-tenue

1. Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Compact Foundation | I'm so happy that Chanel are releasing some new foundations, as I really didn't think a lot of their Healthy Beiges foundation we had over the summer period. I actually really enjoy powder foundations, if they're good, and I have high hopes for this one as I adore Chanel powder formulas - a lot. It comes in 13 shades, which I think is pretty good going.

2. Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Liquid Foundation | If matte isn't so much your thing, there's a liquid version that promises to give you the same, flawless coverage and finish you're looking for. This one comes in 16 shades.

3. LOV Iconyx Eyeshadow Palette | This is for those of you on the continent - well, specifically Germany. How much does it look like the Hourglass eyeshadow palettes?! Fortunately for you guys though, this is a drugstore brand, meaning prices are going to be super affordable.

4. Dior Capture Totale Cushion Foundation | Obviously not content with Lancome and YSL bringing out a cushion, Dior have launched their own in the Capture Totale Dreamskin range. Infused with their skincare, and with the obligatory SPF 50+++, this retails at £60 - I'm really intrigued to see if it really warrants that price tag!

5. Kevyn Aucoin Bloodroses Palette | There are a lot of eyeshadow palettes in this edition.. and the first is this gorgeous jewel toned number from Kevyn Aucoin. I love the warm, pinkish theme to the shades and knowing Kevyn Aucoin, the formula is going to be just as sumptuous.

6. Cle De Peau Eye Colour Quad in Stellar Gaze | Not new to the market but these quads from Cle De Peau have been lingering on my wishlist for a little while now and I'm popping them into this edition in case you haven't seen them! Although they come in a number of shades, Stellar Gaze is a gorgeous array of golds and purpley tones that I can't ignore.

7. Charlotte Tilbury Dreamy Look Eyeshadow Palette | I'm always excited when there's something new from Charlotte Tilbury makeup, and the latest is this gorgeous eyeshadow palette containing 4 light, shimmery shades, including both warm and cool tones - that pinky shade in the top left looks ridiculously pretty.

8. Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette | I haven't been that excited about any of the Naked palettes frankly, but this new release seems like a really versatile, basics palette, full of matte shades with varying undertones, and including a couple of gorgeous warm, orangey, burgundy shades so I'm really excited about this one!

9. Diptyque Lip Balm | Diptyque have added a couple of new items to their skincare range, and I'm a sucker for lipbalms, so this immediately caught my eye. Whether it's any good or not, it's hard to resist the fully-instagrammable packaging right?

10. Tom Ford Lip Contour Duo | Love love love the concept of these. Another travel friendly and multifunctional product (I love their double ended correcting pen), these lip products come with a liner/shaper in one end with a creamy lipstick in the other. Available in 8 shades, I can't wait to try Show It Off.

11. Fresh Vitamin Nectar Face Mask | I've seen this doing the rounds on Instagram and I want it! A glucose based face mask chock full of citrus extracts to brighten and exfoliate skin, this is exactly the kind of mask I lust after, so really excited to try this one out.

12. Diptyque Infused Face Oil | Another item from the new additions at Diptyque, this face oil is infused with rose and rose petals, much like the Neogen rose cleanser that I've fallen a little in love with. Rose seems to work really well with my skin, and I can't pretend that I'm not attracted to the aesthetics of this bottle..


Alright I'm stopping there before my list snowballs into a silly length! Let me know, what's on your current wishlist?!
