When I realized that I hadn’t ever tried anything from the cult beauty brand Liz Earle I knew I had to right the wrong sharpish. And in the spirit of this, I bring you three rather fun offerings from the brand.

It’s looking an awful lot like the end of summer right now – grey skies, wind and rain, and right now, I’m not quite ready for black mornings and early nights. To stave off the coming Fall, I have been turning to Caribbean Essentials Massage & Bath Oil in Release. (more…)

If you’re anything like me, going to bed with a full face of makeup on is not even an option, but if I’ve gotten a little too comfy, or if I want to freshen up pre and post gym – I have been reaching for Alba Botanica’s Hawaiian 3-in-1 Towelletes. (more…)

Elemis Skin Nourishing Shower Cream*

For me, shower gels and creams need to fit neatly into two categories – something zesty and perky for the morning, and something more soothing and luxurious for night. Elemis’ new Nourishing Shower Cream falls squarely into the latter category. (more…)

Nars Creamy Concealer

Whenever any product has as much buzz as Nars’ Creamy Concealer has been enjoying, I just knew I had to try it.

I have been a fan of creamy concealers for about a year – I like having some coverage without the chalkiness which I’ve experienced with thicker formulas. The colour formulations by Nars are hard to beat – I always turn to their Vanilla shade since it is precisely my skin-tone without any yellow or red tones.

The concealer is packaged like a lipgloss, and the sponge tip applicator is perfect for use on the under eye area and around the nose. The concealer does a great job of concealing any shadows and brightening everything up. If I am suffering from any imperfections, I then turn to Nars’ other concealer – a thicker consistency which makes any pimples disappear completely. The longevity of both formulas is impressive – both stay put, without the need for touchups for at least 6 hours, and at no point does my face feel dry or look cakey. The duo of concealers are a must for your stash, and ensure your skin looks its best.

Nars Creamy Concealer is priced at £22.50 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
