NEW IN BEAUTY | WISHLISTING

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?!

For me, date night makeup is some of the prettiest, with a special focus on beautiful skin and eyes. I posted a photo of a look I wore a few weeks back on my Instagram, with a sultry, bronzey, smudgey eye, flushed cheeks and subtle everything else, so today I'm bringing you the tutorial - let's hop in.

I've been drinking this by the litre lately - it's the most moreish and delicious of drinks. And whenever we have friends over, they want it too, in fact, if you've been to my house this summer, you'll already have had it.

KOREAN SKINCARE TIPS
FOR ACNE & ACNE SCARRING.

treat-prevent-acne-korean-skincare-tips-scarring

I get asked so much, especially recently, about acne, how to deal with it and the scarring, the hyperpigmentation that's left behind and how to prevent blemishes and have clearer skin. I'm one of those lucky sods that had nigh on perfect skin throughout my teens, but my twenties have brought with them an onslaught of blemishes so I've really paid attention over the last few years on trialing and finding gentle results that work. I've collated all my thoughts and tips into today's post so let's get started.

 dior-fall-2016-skyline-swatches-review

I literally cannot believe that it's already time for Fall makeup. Does anyone else think this summer is really flying by?! I'm starting off the autumnal collections today with Dior's Skyline Fall 2016, an incredibly beautiful looking array from Chanel's ex-beauty director Peter Philips. So let's get into my first impressions and collection swatches!


GROWN ALCHEMIST SKINCARE.

16 comments


As many of us are, I'm guilty of falling for the androgynous, minimalist apothecary aesthetic of Aussie brand Aesop. But unfortunately, some of their products leave me wanting after scrutinising the ingredients list, their Parsley Seed Serum and Hydrosol Mist for example, filled with alcohols and potentially phytotoxic irritants - all a bit fur coat and no knickers. Thankfully, there's another antipodean skincare brand to consider in Grown Alchemist, with equally uber-cool packaging. It's a brand I've not previously tried so I thought I'd gather a few items to test out. Let's see how it stands up..

WHAT'S IN MY TRAVEL MAKEUP BAG.

travel-makeup-bag-barely-there-beauty

My travel makeup bag is a series of carefully considered pieces. When I'm going abroad, I don't want to be lugging around a trunk of makeup (let alone all the brushes..) with me, telling myself 'at least I have options!', nor do I want to be spending my vacation applying it all. I want quick, I want portability, I want multi-tasking, and I want ease of use. So here are a handful of my current travel faves that make the cut.
