Macadamia Natural Oil ,Shu Uemura False Lashes Louise and Young brushes
I can never resist a wander around a good beauty hall, and as far as beauty halls go, Harvey Nic’s have one of the best.
It’s a real haven for the makeup obsessed; packed full of a diverse range of the known, lesser known and virtually unknown beauty brands on the market.
This makes shopping there mega exciting for me, so when I popped up to Leeds this weekend it was my first port of call and…
This is what I got.
I bypassed all the usual cosmetic counters, the ones I can get anytime, anywhere and sought out the unusual and hard to find.
Having heard so many amazing things about Louise Young’s super foundation brush,the LY34 when i saw her little stand placed conveniently next to the till I just had to grab it!
As you know I’m fanatical about foundation and am always on the pursuit for perfection when it comes to achieving a flawless face, this brush I’ve heard can help me do just that.
I’m not going to say too much now as I will do a full review soon but what I will say is, ladies put this on your Christmas list; my foundation has never looked so good.
The other brush I purchased from her range was the, LY24, a fine, sable eyeliner brush. I lost my beloved Mac 210 a few weeks ago and thought I’d give this one a go for a change.
I used it yesterday and it’s great; goes perfectly with my new gel liner love, YSL’s Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils (more on that later).
LY34 – £24.50 and LY24- £11.50
After receiving a sample of this pricey product in a Boudoir Prive box not long ago I fell instantly in love with the nourishing oil.
I’m a little hair oil crazy at the moment and have three different kinds on the go, this one though is the most intense and luxurious of the bunch, great for my over processed and heat damaged locks.
It’s a fab multi use product; I use it on wet hair to detangle, on dry to add shine or to get rid of frizz and then also overnight as a moisture treatment.
£13.75 for 30ml.
Mini Indigo £14 and Jeweled Love £18.
I don’t often wear falsies but when I do I wear Shu!
There is no other lash brand quite like Shu Uemura, their quality and design are impeccable and a worthy investment.
Each pair is hand-made and will last you many a night out if you look after them; my favourite pair, the Mini Khaki, lasted me for at least 15 booze ups before I painfully had to chuck them.
I always go for corner lashes as they best suit my eye shape, I love the winged out effect they give without being too OTT.
Talking of OTT the pair I wore out this weekend were a little mad but I had to have them.
Part of their Christmas collection these feather and diamante lashes look so much better on and because I only wear them on the outer corner of my eye they will last me forever.
I think Jeweled Love are perfect for the party season!
A little less dramatic and daring the other pair I purchased were the Mini Indigo’s, a fluttery and winged out corner lash set.
