I don’t feel like I’ve spoken a lot about beauty recently, and that’s where my blogging roots lie. I personally am not in a place where I want to spend a small fortune on new beauty products and have been getting through some of my old products. But with Christmas coming up, I can always ask for someone to gift me some beauty sets, so I’ve created this Christmas Beauty Gift wish list (one of only two wish lists this blogmas series) to share what I think is worth picking up this season.
I have a collection of lipsticks full of varying colours, but I have a group that I know are perfect for work. I like something muted, something that lasts a long time, and something that fades evenly. Not a big ask, surely? But it’s taken me 5 months to put together a collection of lipsticks that are suitable for work!
I don’t need to tell you that I love makeup. Like, this is a serious love affair that isn’t ending anytime soon (sorry Jack). It’s pretty to look at and hold and I enjoy spending my hard earned cash on it. However, there are a few brands that I never really try much from and I really want to dip my toe into their pond (that sounds a little cheekier than I intended, oh well). Inspired by Katie’s post, I have put together a few brands that I’m dying to try more of in 2017.
I own a lot of makeup. A lot. But I don’t tend to splurge on super high end products all that often, because some of the mid-range products do the trick for me. I’m particularly cautious when it comes to lip products because I have £5 products that I adore, and a £26 product which is pants…and I know which one I’d rather lose and repurchase.
But am I a real blogger if I’ve never tried anything from Charlotte Tilbury? I don’t think so! So a couple of weeks ago I treated myself to the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria as I love a brown lipsticks. Give me all the browns.
