New To My Stash

Being in the fashion and beauty industry is full of perks and one that can be both a blessing and a curse is a constant onslaught of free makeup. 3 years ago I used to squeal with delight when a new heavy parcel made it’s way to my front door full of new exciting products, now however it can be somewhat overwhelming to sift through all the latest launches and work out what to try and what I know will straight up break me out/make me look like a tangerine. Last week after a thorough sift through I found some real gems and wanted to share them with you!

Firstly let’s discuss Ciate x Olivia Palermo nail polish in Sundays – this colour is the perfect ballerina nude that works just as well on every other day as it does on Sundays. It makes my nails look polished and looks chic with every outfit, plus the formula is amazing – it is almost as sturdy as gel and lasts a good chip free 7 days.

YSL Beauté have just launched some new matte lipsticks and 218 Coral Remix is the perfect muted darker Summer coral. It looks amazing over Spice lipliner and glides on like a dream – it feels weightless and nourishing. I’m also obsessed with Touche Eclat – I’ve never tried it before but now addicted to it’s highlighting and under eye brightening power.

Tarte’s new lip balms – Rainforest of the Sea don’t disappoint in packaging nor quality. They are subtly pigmented and give just the right amount of shine before toning down to a balmy stain. I love the shades Nude and Rose for an every day lip.

I’m not one for fake tan but the James Read h20 mist is gradual and ideal for days when I pop on a pair of denim cut offs and need a bit of bronzing on my legs. Infused with rosewater it’s calming, hydrating as well as giving a gentle gradual tan over the course of the day.

Would you guys be interested in seeing new in posts once a week? Let me know!
