Wow - it's been almost a year since I wrote on here. But thanks to some gentle persuasion from a friend, I decided to do a little post here and there. Life is still as hectic as ever. In the past 12 months, I've actually stuck at this job, finally bagged myself a Training Contract, been to HK and back...and also calmed down a little bit in terms of beauty products splurging. It's time now to use some stuff up methinks.
Best way I can think of to re-introduce myself is to do a little "What I've been using" tag.
Shampoo - John Freida Luxurious Volume / Radiant Red
Conditioner - Again, never really use it but when I do, I use V05 Oils to repair my colour-treated hair
Hair Mask - None
Styling Products - I use Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion / Lee Stafford Matt Stylee My Big Fat Texturised Spray and finishing it off with Tresemme 24 Hour Body Spray
Body Wash - Tesco's Dupe of Originals' Lemon and Lime Shower Gel
Moisturiser - Amazingly, I'm still using Body Shop's Coconut Moisturising Spray. I love the way the Coconut just lingers on my skin!!
Anti-Perspirent - Dove Go Fresh Anti-Perspirant Deodorant Spray Green Tea & Cucumber
Make Up Remover - I've been pretty lazy recently so just Simple Make-Up Removing Wipes and then some Bobbi Brown Long Lasting Eye Make-Up Remover
Cleanser - Chanel Fresh Foaming Mousse Cleanserr
Exfoliator - none at the moment, as I've found that it irritates my skin more!
Primer - when I remember, the Laura Mercier Primer
Foundation - I've done a bit of mixing and found my *current* favourite is Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation with either some Chanel Aqua Vitalumiere or some Dior Forever for staying power
Concealer - Bobbi Brown Corrector / YSL Touche Eclat
Powder - MAC Studio Fix
Blush - Givenchy Pink Prisms
Bronzer - MAC Sunny by Nature (I'm actually gutted that this is LE!)
Highlighter - Dior Shimmer Powder - not sure what it's called but it's LE and pretty with lilacs, pinks and gold
Eyebase - Nars Eyeshadow Primer
Eyeshadow - It really depends whether I'm lazy (Revlon Shadow Sticks) or I have some time on my hands (NARS All About Eve Duo - for a shimmery day-time look)
Eyeliner - Bobbi Brown Long Staying Gel Eyeliner in Brown and Illamasqua Liner
Mascara - Dior Iconic with Clinique Lash Power
Lipstick - MAC Creme d' Nude with Dior Addict 214 (now discontinued - sadface!)
Gloss - Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lip Gloss in Peroxide
Nail Varnish - Currently sporting Rimmel's Rose Libertine with Barry M Black Instant Effects over the top
Perfume - Re-discovered Paul Smith Rose or else Marc Jacobs' Daisy
I would like to get in on a project which uses up more of my stash - I've taken to making little packages of things for my friends at the moment! I'm still yet to do a swap with Holly YM (I'm sorry I'm so rubbish with the post) - the 9-5 makes it almost impossible to get to a post office!!
Hopefully more posts (more regularly) soon!
