First of all, I would like to wish you all a lovely Easter. If, like me you are avoiding chocolate like the plague this weekend, I know the intense internal struggle sister.
But, if you can’t eat chocolate and naughty treats then at least indulge in some beauty retail thez 😍- because there’s always a valid reason to treat yourself..
As you know I’m a complete product whore, and have recently starting writing beauty reviews for reallyree.com (hurrah more products – for free)! So I have put together this cute list of ultimate Spring buys, at the moment I am obsessed with cute little unknown brands that don’t cost the earth. Anyone can go into Selfridges and buy a Tom Ford lipstick for £57 and say it’s amazing. But sometimes there is beauty in the unknown, exploring and promoting independent brands. This is also how cult products are found, often accidentally.
Here’s my pick;
Because I’m a firm believer in preserving and loving the skin your in. Everyone who’s anyone has seen Dr Manuka products all over the beauty industry for probably the best part of the last 6 months. I have been so anxious to try the range, so when I spotted the Cc cream in my local Superdrug for £7.99 I could not resist.
Utilising pure bee venom and manuka honey, the Cc cream delivers an exotic feel for very little money. I decided to stop wearing foundation a while ago – this is my new must have product. You can wear it under make up or alone – it gives radiance to skin, an even coverage (although very light and natural), and has a colour correcting formula.
Plus it helps to fight ageing, the bee venom promotes skins elasticity. AND it has SPF 20. Is there anything this product doesn’t do for the skin!?
2. Lashed out; Amazing shine 100% human hair lashes in 110, £1.99
Absolute bargain of the century, discovering these lashes in a back street store in west London was deffo one of my genius moments. They are so cheap I can probably afford a different pair every day of next year.
Amazing quality (100% human hair), a good range of styles. I have opted for no. 101 which is natural yet glam in my usual whispy style.
3. Highlighter on fleek; Technic get gorgeous highlighting powder in pink, £3
The cheapest and best highlighter ever. Put it this way, against my UD highlighter this one is much better value. Ignoring the price tag, it is simple to apply, very pigmented and gives a lovely glow. The best dupe ever.
Have a lovely, glowing Easter guys 🐣💗
