So yet again I am not letting go of spring, at least let the sun come out before we call it summer! Here is a round up of a few of my favourite beauty products from spring. Some of these are new and some of these have been around for a few months but I only recently tried them. Spring is all about colour, a huge one being pastels. Like with our fashion lets step away from the heavy shades and brighten up a little bit with these fabulous colours.
I attended the spring launch of Max Factor products and these Crème Puff Blushes stood out like a sore thumb. When choosing a blush I go for a soft pink or coral tone usually and that is what really caught my attention with these. I loved how they looked so different to any blush I had previously tried. I have three colours from this collection and they are ‘Lovely Pink 5’, ‘Nude Mauve Pink 10’ and ‘Lavish Mauve 20’. My favourite has to be ‘Lavish Mauve 20’.
I am a regular user of Waxperts Wax and have to say it is the best wax I have come across. I know several salons that use it but the girls in their own Dun Laoghaire salon are the nicest. When I heard that Waxperts had brought out a new retail product I was excited to try it out. First of all I love, love, LOVE lavender and find it so soothing. The body beautiful oil is perfect for applying after you wax or just to sooth and nourish your skin. I use it at night as the scent is so calming. I am half way through the bottle and don’t want it to end. I bought mine in their salon but you can buy online here on www.dolledup.ie.
This lip oil tops all and any future lip oils that will hit the beauty market. They come in two shades and adapt to the tone of your own lips. Everyone will look different even though they will be wearing the same product. Why do I love this product so much? Well it hydrates your lips leaving them feeling nourished and soft again. The product is not sticky on your lips, I repeat NOT sticky. This is a pet hate of mine. You apply lip gloss, walk out the door and them boom a gust of wind makes your hair stick to your face. I have worn this product on several occasions and cannot fault it. I was gifted this product but I have gone on to buy 3 more. When you find something you love, stock up! All this loveliness for only €19!
How I first heard about the brand ‘theBalm’ was through other bloggers. The packaging looked really cute and fun with cheeky names. I had read several blog posts about this product before purchasing as I thought ‘sure I already have one highlighter, why would I need more’. Again I was wrong because a girl can never have too much makeup. First time using this product and I have not looked back since. In such a handy compact packet with a mirror and all this, the highlighter did not disappoint. It is a light golden shimmer that illuminates your skin and brings it to life. Highlighter really enhances your features, especially for selfies! You can buy online here on www.cloud10beauty.com.
This product was so amazing I gave it it’s own individual post. You can read my review here. Why you ask is it in my spring must haves? Well not only is the colour a super dark black but the brush is designed to grab and separate your lashes while also lifting and curling your lashes. I have always been a huge fan of benefit mascaras and they did it again with this one, a firm winner.
The pretty packaging is what instantly attracted me to this product. The perfume itself screams spring to me. Fresh, floral and fruity scents but yet not too light. I know that perfume is different for everyone and we all have our personal preference but I have to say this is in my top 3 perfumes. Seeing as I have been wearing Lancôme for the past 3 years with nothing else even getting a sniff in, pardon the pun. I bought this perfume in the smaller size, 30ml because I wanted to have it in my handbag when I am on the go.
