There hasn’t been a brand discussed in the beauty industry with as much curiosity for a long time then ‘The Ordinary’. Appearing in blogs, vlogs and beauty pages, these little glass bottles of formula are creating ripples through the multi million pound market.
I, of course jumped on the band wagon and needed to see what the hype was all about! The Ordinary ordered through the site DECIEM is a brand that focuses on the clinical formulations of products rather than the ‘insensible pricing strategies’ many companies chose to adopt, hence why the price tag is so reasonable! I’m talking £8 for the Advance Retinoid 30 mls of anti ageing, anti pollution serum that revivals (and as some top beauty bloggers say is better than…) Sunday Riley’s Luna priced at £85.
So I might be a little late to the beauty bloggers party with this one but I am loving the NYX Soft matte lip cream range at the moment! After browsing the hectic stand at Boots, weaving through the crowded stand which proves this brand is really growing some cult status!
I picked up two very different shades and at first was a little unsure the colours on the outside would actually match the liquid inside let alone the matte effect actually coming through as well as being as nice as everyone is raving about but I can 100% hand on heart say I love them both ALOT and here’s why..
Anything with ‘Magic’ in the title surely has to be explored right??…After lusting over the rose gold gorgeous Charlotte Tilbury branding along with the many online reviews praising the foundation I knew that it was something I needed to try!
Now that the sky is a little darker, the clothes are a little thicker, I’m feeling the lips need a bit of a revamp and reset… its time to change the lip shade ready for autumn!
I have picked my 3 favourite shades to take me into the colder months and perfect for day to night. Surprisingly no vampy red colour features in this post soooo thats on my ‘find the perfect red’ list ready for those Christmas party events.
Here it is my 3 favs of the moment, starting with my Charlotte Tilbury Miranda May, you know I love it and I’ve dedicated a post to it already here but this colour is perfect for day time as it doesn’t scream in your face but its special with its soft pinky coral tones and makes you feel fab in the evening too!
I did it, I bit the bullet and ordered myself a Charlotte Tilbury hot lips lipstick, after coveting for a while over her gorgeous products, one tired Sunday evening I thought why not??…next minute I’m confirming my order and its mine!
Charlotte Tilbury has been a make up artist since the 90s and her work graces the cover of practically all our favourite magazines, she has an impressive following with the likes of Kimmy K, Natalie Portman and Kate Moss amongst her biggest supporters, so clearly she must be doing something right!
