I’ve been feeling a bit… spendy online lately and just now (almost) everything has arrived!
I’ve given most of these product a go, so that I won’t be writing about them with no exprience whatsoever, and thus far? It’s been love at first use all across the board.
I’ll start off with the biggest damage maker, the GHD Amythest Hairstyler – “Where has this been all my life?” was the first thing out of my mouth after I used it once. I have naturally curly hair, but I like my hair… straight-ish as in not really straight but styled with a bit of a wave or a curl with a boat load of salt spray in there for texture and the ‘oh-i-woke-up-with-awesome-french-girl-hair’ look. I strive to look like I was a born parisienne but, alas, I’m not. These straighten hair in a second with one swipe, and creating a curl or a wave is just as quick. There is a learning curve but who cares?
The cultbeauty buys are up next, and damn those girls know how to lure you in… There was a 15% off offer I just couldn’t resist! I grabbed the Oskia Renassance Cleansing Gel that everyone raves about, since I’m low on Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm and this seemed like a good one to try. I also got the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask (which is on my mug as I type this up) for… reasons. So far I like them both very much – I’m not using the Oskia daily but rather as a bit of a treat until I finish of my Boscia cleanser, but soon like really soon.
Lastly, I grabbed a Clinique mascara at the counter – there was some sort of offer and I was feelin’ spendy again. I’ve loved this one for a while, the High Impact Mascara is a great staple everyday one that gives nice separation and volume without being over the top. The formula also doesn’t flake which come summer time is always a bonus, since no melting mascara everywhere.
Oh, I almost forgot! The Holy Grail of Foundations if you ask the internet – Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk does indeed live up to it’s hype, I bought the shade 4 assuming it’ll be fine – I was matched to 5 at a counter last summer on holiday, so I was much darker; and got the jackpot of foundation matches. The coverage is beautiful and on camera? No words to describe.
