Best new beauty products of November 2014

I don’t want to point it out but guys, it’s the end of November already. Can you smell Christmas? Can you hear those New Years fireworks? They are right around the corner so before the madness ensues I want to show you some of my new favourite products to end the season.

November isn’t a key time for product launches but I still had 31 new beauties land on my desk, most of which were colour cosmetics and nail collections. The change of season is the perfect time to get yourself some new colourful toys to use over the festive season and with Black Friday/Cyber Monday coming up, you’ll probably be able to get them a lot cheaper. Oh and don’t forget to check back for our ultimate sale shopping guides for the big weekend! Continue Reading

The Parcel Beauty Box Spring

The beauty subscription box scene has been shaken up this season with the arrival of Marie Claire’s The Parcel. This new beauty box service is promising to deliver the best beauty edit, selected by Marie Claire’s own editors, right to your front door. It’s the editor-approved curated beauty box and there’s no jealousy because everyone gets the same products, but does it contain anything good?

I videoed my unboxing of the very first limited edition box, the Spring edit, and below I have a review of each product included. Will you want to subscribe after seeing this? Have a look!  Continue Reading

Best new beauty product launches

Eeeek, is that really the date already? I know August is well and truly over but I can’t pass up sharing my favourites for the month. As for the delay in posting it, well, I blame New York Fashion Week. You’ll soon see why that took up so much of my time.

It was a somewhat slow month for new launches, with only 28 new products gracing my desk, but nearly all of them grabbed my attention and many of them will be fronting some big advertising campaigns over the coming months. I’m sure this won’t be the first nor last you see of them Continue Reading

Black Forest Beauty Products

One of my favourite desserts is Black Forest Cake. The mixture of chocolate and cherries go so well together and the rich colours make it feel extra decadent. After recently creating this masterpiece vegan black forest cake it made me realise how beautiful that choc-cherry colour is. I instantly started wearing it on my nails, lips and cheeks.

Now that Fall is arriving in the top half of the world, I thought I would share my favourite shade of the season for you to all join in on. Here are my top picks of Black Forest-inspired beauty.  Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
