To know me is to know that there is certain products that at one point or other I am going to make you sniff or test. Products that I adore so much that I think anyone and everyone should try, I simply love them that much. Here is a recent round up of my must try beauty products, just call me Adrienne the enabler...
Palmers Strong Roots Spray - A conditioning spray that moisturises the scalp as well as the hair. It soothes dry, itchy scalps, is non-greasy, conditions both the scalp and hair and smells ah-maz-ing. The best five pounds you will ever spend in the hair care aisle. Did I mention it smells amazing?
Chanel Blue Satin Nail Polish - Autumn is now afoot here in the UK and I'm dodging wine hues of nail polish in favour of spellbinding metallic navy nails. Spellbinding? Watch early episodes of Sabrina the Teenage Witch and you will see deep blue metallic nails everywhere. Hello 90's alert! In all seriousness this is one of the few Chanel polishes worth the splurge the formula isn't half bad either.
Malin + Goetz Dark Rum Candle - Like I said us Brits are bracing ourselves for the cooler weather and in my mind that equates to one thing - candles! I am more than a little enamoured by Malin + Goetz Dark Rum EDT which scents the candle of the same name. It is deep yet fresh and utterly sexy due to the leather note. Yes Malin + Goetz candles are a little pricey but each is scented with real cologne so it does altogether feel and smell more luxurious. Try it and tell me you aren't sold.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in True Love - I'm not normally one for a pink blush but this is the exception. A pretty pink thatt gives my cheeks the most beautiful, glowing, healthy flush without the need for an abundance of shimmer. It lifts and brightens my whole face and doesn't leave me looking like a deranged Barbie doll. The kicker is that the formula really does stay in place all day long. Thumbs up all round.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette - My current baby, I have owned this since the day it launched but it has only been recently that I have succumbed to its beauty. Three subtle, soft focus powders that illuminate the skin and can double up as make-up setting powders. No swatches or review will ever fully convey just how wonderful this palette is, I am afraid trying really is believing with this.
Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadows - Are they the ultimate By Terry Black Star Ombre dupes? In a word no but honestly who cares? A silky, soft, easy to blend out cream eyeshadow that stays in place, comes in a huge variety of shades and is my current go to eyeshadow base. I love how convenient, cheap, diverse and long wearing the Kiko Long Lasting eyeshadows are. Now if only a Kiko store would come further North.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum - I'm terrified of crow's feet as well as any sort of line or wrinkle forming on my face. Ridiculous as we all have to get old some day. I blame reality TV for my sudden onset of vanity. Each evening before bed I slap on Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum and pray for the best. So far, so good i.e I am wrinkle/line free but then again I am in my mid-twenties, not a typically smiley character and live in a cold country - you do the math.
Epic Blend Lip Balms - Hands down my favourite non-medicated lip balm line EVER. Constructed from natural and organic ingredients they not only smell wonderful but they are beyond moisturising. I'm almost certain that should you try one you would agree.
For now that is all I am insisting everyone at least swatches at the next available opportunity.
