It’s time to bundle together the best of beauty from the past seven days. Edited down to five of the top products, videos, posts, releases and the rest that have had me clicking away:

1. Deborah Lippmann Manis. Hooray! Deborah Lippmann has finally been released full-scale in the UK. When I heard the news I scrambled online to pick up my first pieces from her range and ended up with the Creme Nail Polish in Modern Love and Rock & Roll Base and Top Coat Mini Duet in my bag. The colour is a beaut – a mauve-y grey – and the base and top coats do a good job too, fast-drying and hardy in function.

2. A Chelsea Wears Marathon. I just love Chelsea. If you’re not already familiar with her hilarious makeup ramblings, then go and get acquainted. I’m personally a big fan of her 30-minute long ‘Get Ready With Me’s’ that I play while I too get ready each morning. Watch. Laugh. Mentally add everything she uses onto your wishlist.

3. Burnished Eyes. One of my New Years Beauty Resolutions was to crack out the eyeshadow everyday, and so far so good. This week I’ve been feeling more of a rusty, burnished vibe and reaching for shades such as the MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Eclair, L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Bottomless Java and Clinique’s All About Shadow in Black Honey.

4. Ruth Does Juice. A juicer has been on my shopping list for the longest of times (beauty bits sit on my list for a matter of hours before I do the deed, but house-related things? Not so much). Could Ruth’s latest post tip me over the edge? I think so. She’s enrolled to a 5-day juice thang and though I’m intrigued to hear her thoughts on the matter I think her explanation of a ‘zingy’ apple and ginger shot in the morning is enough. Off to John Lewis I go.

5. Beauty Blender Solid Brush Cleaner. In a Selfridges sweep I conducted this week, this solid brush cleaner was popped into my basket and purchased. I’m not quite sure what possessed me to pick it up, it’s certainly not the most sexiest of beauty-related purchases, but it’s bloomin’ awesome. When I came home it was the first thing I riffled through my shopping bags to use. It’s sort of like a soap that you whirl wet brushes in to clean ‘em. Genius. In fact that wasn’t the only thing I left Selfridges with – full haul coming tomorrow.

    I love Chelsea. It’s a pity she hasn’t really posted lately; she’s been so busy with her shop. (Which totally rocks btw).

    I find myself having chelseawears marathons too, haha. On the teetering edge of purchasing Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation just because she always seems to use it!

    Chelsea is so much fun to watch. Feel good Youtube, I think! Nice for a casual weekend watch :) . I’m loving the burnished eyes at the moment too! Especially a nice little one-swipe-wonder or two!

    To be exact this is a cleanser for the beautyblender, you could use it for the Real Techniques Sponge. But it’s probably the same as a simple brushsoap like Da Vinci’s. I’ve used this to clean my brushes before I discovered the Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap and I like the latter a lot more! ;-)

    The Beauty Blender Solid Brush Cleaner sounds interesting, will have to look into it when I finish my current brush cleaner :) xx

    Ahh I really love the loreal infallible eye shadows, and I really want to watch chelsea now. :)

    I’ve often wondered when a solid brush cleaner would come out for make-up brushes. They sell one for cleaning paint brushes, which I’m sure you could for make-up. But the packaging on this is just far nicer and chicer!

  • Kassandra Fairhall

    God I’ve wanted a juicer for ever! ahaha same with me, beauty bits comes first and that’s why it’s been on my shopping list forever

  • Allie H

    I’d love a post on the best brush cleaners! I may do a DIY alternative myself but would be so useful to know the best brands out there.
