It may be Monday, it may be pouring it down, but I can safely say at the moment I love being a morning person! I’m weirdly loving the idea of starting early and finishing early. Hitting the day’s goals before some people have even left the house is without a doubt, a novelty that will never wear off. They say the early bird catches the worm and it’s definitely early birds that find out about the newest beauty discoveries!
Well excited about a new summer lip launch from Maybelline. Rebel Bouquet (Rebel Bloom in America!) is a family of crisp summery shades in the bestselling ColorSensational formula, I read in one UK glossy that Davina McCall is a big ColorSensational lipstick fan! These bang on trend but all-skintone friendly colours are the best wake up call for your complexion and a pop of colour is a sure fire way to cure the Monday blues!
Get in the nude to look natural, with a L’oreal Paris exclusive collection…
Another favourite of mine forever since they came out, has been L’oreal Paris star-inspired nude lipstick in which there is one for every skintone. They couldn’t have come up with a better idea to help you find the right nude, because after all, no two people share the same skin or hair colouring, everyone’s unique. Doutzen Kroes, Julianne Moore, Liya Kebede, Eva Longoria and Freida Pinto all played their part in launching the Collection Privee, made up of several different nude hues to give absolutely anyone the opportunity to rock au naturel! These lot have to be the best nude lipsticks I’ve tried because in the past I’ve made the mistake of choosing sensible looking neutrals that, in truth, ended up being too pale on me, only achieving the sallow “washed out” look.
No one can resist the temptation of Caramel Infused, the most sold-out of the Maybelline Colour Elixir family. This sensible pink toned nude gets on with most skin tones and combines the colour pay off of a lipstick, the feel of a balm and the shine of a gloss without having to be the loudest of the bunch.
Kate Moss has once again teamed up with Rimmel London to bring to the high-street a collection of nudes, three of which flatter most skintones. The best natural look is here for everyone in this range, that come in summery pastel beige tubes, a refreshing change to the black packaging on previous Kate collections. And of course, every tube is stamped not only with Rimmel’s crown of approval but the supermodel’s signature too!
My bargain beauty hero this week is L’oreal Rouge Caresse lipstick in 501 Nude Ingenue, a balm-like lipstick that, as the name suggests delivers a veil of colour without looking or feeling heavy. This was another lucky catch on my recent trip to the Factory Clearence store in Barmouth when I went to Wales.
