The Lush List
This month’s 10 tried, tested and trusted - places, beauty and lifestyle products that I’m loving at the moment...
“The Lauren Hat is my signature one of a kind hat. It put my shop on the map!” The lightweight Lauren crochet cloche hat with flower and matching leaf in off-white has a zigzag asymmetrical brim which does not fall in your face. The left side sits under the crown while the right side flows above it. Change the look with one turn. You also have the option to customise it in your colour and size. These gorgeous hats are made from Caron Simply Soft 100% acrylic yarn.
Christian Louboutin Beauty’s ‘Bikin Questa Sera’ scent is inspired by the intense beauty of the Egyptian sunset. Aromatic notes of Jasmine and Tuberose Absolute are at the heart of this evocative fragrance, while warm Sandalwood forms the base. It’s housed in an amber and gold glass vessel that makes it perfect for gifting. It includes notes of Green Nectar, Vetiver and Ambergris.
Katie says... “I’ve scoured the globe for an anti-ageing solution that actually helps to slow down the ageing process. I’ve found it by taking a Rejuvenated Collagen Shot drink every day. If you are over the age of 25 then don’t delay in taking this liquid supplement. Why? Because, from the age of 25, the skin gradually decreases its production of Collagen. It reduces at a rate of 1.5% per year, so by the age of 45 collagen levels can have reduced by as much as 30%. By drinking this supplement every day you are helping your skin regenerate, this supplement works from the inside out; it helps slow down the ageing process and starts replenishing cells to replace the lost collagen.”
Stila One Step Correct is the bestselling, innovative complexion perfector which corrects, enhances and primes the skin for a flawless finish effortlessly. This innovative triple-swirled helix serum fabulously combines four beauty necessities into one easy step! Infusing a primer, colour-corrector, brightener and anti-ageing skincare serum, One Step Correct certifies its status as an absolute beauty essential for any cosmetic collection and takes care of all of your skin’s needs.
Non-drying, featherweight, densely-pigmented and with a statement foil finish, there’s nothing about Huda Beauty’s Liquid Matte - Special Effects we’re not obsessed with. Already causing a furore, the silky formula applies like a lipgloss then dries in moments - cloaking your pout with a smooth, kiss-resistant veil of vibrant colour that won’t smudge, flake or transfer. Enriched with nourishing ingredients and available in two standout shades - coppery pink ‘Socialite’ or the ruby slipper-red ‘Showgirl’. Decisions, decisions!
“Perfect Partners” is what you get with this dewy-fresh fluid foundation that feels as light as a feather on your skin. Accompanied by a complimenting shade of creamy concealer under the mirrored lid. This is your perfect weapon to disguise either under-eye darkness or blemishes. The duo forms the perfect partnership, avoiding the chore of hunting down a match to your base. Perfume and Paraben free.
This powerful serum targets EVERY aspect of eye ageing for both upper and lower eyelid ageing with its 28 clinical technologies in one treatment! ALL signs of ageing around the delicate eye area (like dark circles, puffiness and fine lines) are reduced. Not only will it minimize expression lines with continued use over time, but it will also help stimulate circulation to improve drainage of toxins (that build up and lead to dark circles and puffiness) and helps to improve skin tone. There’s NO miracle cure of ageing around the eye BUT this really helps.
If your skin’s feeling a little dry and tired, this luscious, all-natural Brightening Cleanser will give it a new lease of life - leaving you flawlessly fresh-faced (it’s gentle enough to remove even eye makeup). The cooling gel texture is the perfect way to wake up a tired complexion in the morning, while the strawberry-infused scent provides a little extra mood boost. What’s more, if you have time to let it ‘sit’ for 5-10 minutes, it acts as a re-texturising mask!
Contains broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 25 UVB/UVA. Water resistant to 40 minutes. Smoothes and brightens skin. Non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, sensitivity tested, clinically tested, dermatologist tested. Grapefruit extract helps minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. Apple extract is a skin-smoothing antioxidant which exfoliates, refines and rejuvenates the skin. Bitter Orange extract perfumes and conditions and Titanium Dioxide calms and smooths the skin and gives excellent UV protection.
The Pretty Bag Company introduces ‘Totally Bespoke’... where your own gorgeous ‘Be Spoilt’ avatar is created and hand painted by the talented designer Julie. It is then printed onto a luxury makeup bag, perfect for stashing all your favourite cosmetic goodies. You’ll also feel incredibly indulgent when you pull this little beauty out of your handbag! But hey - who cares? Be spoilt…
