TRIED & TESTED

 

 

I cant try everything myself, so I love to hand new makeup & skincare out to my friends & family to test for me. Here are a few fabulous new beauty products that have been tried & tested by the experts!

The ‘Hot Collection’ from Bobbi Brown  This is a gorgeous limited edition range is inspired by model Kate Uptons hometown in Florida- think warm nude tones of the beach combined with the bright lights of Miami & you have the ‘Hot’ collection. I am personally loving the Hot Nudes palette (pictured above) which comes in a sleek black case, opening to reveal a neon pink palette containing eight amazingly wearable shades of eye shadow- everything from matte ivory & black through to shimmery bronze & sandy pink. This is a palette that you can use for day or night & its a great way to consolidate your eye shadows into one case. RRP $135 & I think thats great value.

 

Within the collection you will also find Bobbis new Art Sticks which look exactly like an art crayon, but are designed to be used on the lips. My cousin Sacha has great skin & lovely full lips, so I gave her the hot Pink Art Stick. She told me that she loves using the crayon because it works like a lip pencil & lipstick all in one. Application is easy as it glides onto the lips without dragging the skin, plus its long lasting. Shes currently wearing her bright pink lips with light shimmery eyes, dewy skin & bronzy cheeks- the perfect makeup for late summer. This range is limited so get to the Bobbi Brown counter now! RRP $50

 

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24 Hour Makeup. My Aunty Antoinette (who is in her stunning 60′s) loves her foundation & even though her skin is amazing & relatively wrinkle free, she still likes a makeup with good coverage for everyday wear. I gave her Lizzie Ardens new foundation last week & it only took her a few days to tell me that she is loving it! It comes in 12 colours & I gave her Bisque & Toasty Beige, both warm & yellow based for her olive skin. She is currently mixing the two together for the perfect between seasons shade. She said the coverage is brilliant & leaves a lovely satin finish that lasts all day. Because her skin is dry she doesnt use powder & other than a quick pat of pressed powder on the nose I would recommend doing the same for most mature skins. Flawless Finish is on counter now RRP $69

 

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water  This product is quite remarkable as even though it looks like a ordinary bottle of water, it actually works efficiently as a cleanser. Micellar water contains micro sized oil molecules that lift dirt from the skin, so all you need to do is soak a cotton pad with this wonder water & wipe away all traces of makeup. I also gave this product to my aunty to try as because she likes full coverage with her foundation, she always uses a cream cleanser. After a few days of using Micellar she came back to me with a glowing review; It took off all traces of foundation as well as eye makeup, left no oily residue, plus it felt calming & fresh on the skin. This is a great all purpose cleanser that is quick & convenient to use & you can find it at your Supermaket or Pharmacy

 

Plantae Sea Buckthorn Berry Night Cream  This lovely new Organic night cream from the New Zealand brand Plantae is rich with antioxidants & vitamins to ensure you wake up with renewed skin.The combination of Rose Hip, Sea Buckthorn, Evening Primrose oil & Black Currant leaf help to repair & restore skin in the most natural way possible. My friend Catriona is mad on all things Organic so I passed this product on to her hoping it could be the perfect night cream shes been searching for! Her review is all positive, in her own words…” I love this cream & will try more in the range. It glides on smoothly & my skin seems to drink it up. It is heavy enough for me to know its doing my skin good, but light enough to not feel like a mask (like so many night creams). You can buy this product directly from the Plantae Website where you will also find a list of stockists RRP 64.90

  1. I think I will try the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water as it sounds a great alternative to cream cleansers – Anna
