Five Things

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. Tati’s Video on Revlon’s New Drop. Well, well, well don’t these new Revlon Colourstay Moisture Stains look exciting. No news on when they’ll drop in the UK as yet, but with promises of hard hitting colours that start with shine and end in a stain I’m excited. Tiffany has some fab swatches too that have sold me, here.

2. NARS Lipstick in Schiap is ah-mazing. Like, seriously. It’s one of those ‘makes you feel fabulous even if you’ve only had three hours of sleep’ shades – speaking from experience here. I dab it on lightly for days when I just want some complexion lifting colour and scribe it on with serious force when I’m ballsy enough for a full-on fuchsia.

3. Selfridge’s New Makeup Bag Range – Vanilla Fly. You know my weakness is makeup bags and when I spotted these online my little pretty pouch radar was on full alert. The slogan makes me giggle and enticingly unisex in appearance, I’m planning on checking these out in the flesh sometime this week. I’ll report back with my findings.

4. Laura Mercier’s Nude Smokey Eye Palette. A beaut of a palette that I mentioned in Wednesday’s post, it’s basically all I’ve worn on my eyes all week. The right hand side of the line-up has everyday covered and the right hand side takes care of things when a bit more definition is required. Plus the brushes that are included? Swoon.

5. Into The Gloss’ #TopShelfieWhat a genius idea. Readers submit a snap of the contents of their bathroom shelves along with their beauty musings and then we all get to have a read. My inner nosey neighbour is satisfied.

  • Koofa

    I absolutely love that lip color on you!

  • Snezhana

    This is color is SO you! BTW how are those lair mercer brushes? Workable? xx

  • Anna Blush

    As a fellow makeup bag fiend, I completely understand your excitement. Hopefully they’re just as nice in the flesh! Also loving ITG’s Top Shelfie, such a nosy neighbour x

  • Savannah Giersthove

    Schiap looks a lot like Chanel Diva right? I do prefer Nars though! so weightless on the lips!

  • Camille

    Laura Mercier Palette looks amazing! Would love to see a video on how you use it! :)

    The palette looks amazing and the lipstick is gorgeous on you. Lovely post x

  • Sybil Mae

    That pink lip colour looks gorgeous! 😮

  • Jennifer S

    OMG, that TopShelfie is my newest obsession. Based on the picture alone, I think Flower’s Kiss Stick in Flamingo Flower is a good dupe for that NARS lipstick. It’s matte, bright, long-lasting, and gorgeous. A good drugstore alternative!


  • Lindsey

    I love that lip color!

  • emiller1233

    The lipstick looks a little dangerous for me, but I love the #topshelfie too. It’s like ‘What’s in my bag’ but to a different level.

  • Lauren S
  • Baljeet

    That lip colour suits you so well!! xx

  • Abi Thrasher

    Would love to try the palette! x

  • Kimberley

    Wow the Laura Mercier palette looks gorgeous! I would wear all these shades.

    Those shelfie post on Into the Gloss are my favorites. It’s really interesting to see what’s on the shelf of beauty editors and makeup artists.

  • Katie | The Caramel Frappe blo

    Those make up bag’s are fantastic! *swoons*

  • GeorginaEdith

    I was looking for a lipstick in the shade of your Nars lipstick (which looks good on you!) and I just found out that Nars named several lipsticks after Audrey Hepburn’s movies. Now I want them all!

    Have a great evening!

  • Daisy

    Need those toiletry bags in my life! What a great gift idea too x

  • Amber Hunter

    When I first saw you wear Schiap, I think it was in a video with Lily, I immediately opened the down bar to see the shade because it was so beautiful. Definitely a fuchsia I’m dying to get my hands on and you wear it beautifully!

  • Paola Ysabel

    The makeup bag looks so fab! And loving the lip color on you :)

  • Emma-Kate Hewitt

    That Laura Mercier palette looks gorgeous!!

  • Stephanie

    The makeup bags are super cute, although white in colour, so they make get grubby!



  • Jennifer Monforton

    Glad you’re loving Schiap! I’m a sucker for bright pinks and it’s one of my all-time favourites! :)

  • Shannon P

    Those make-up bags are so cute! I love the slogan make-up bags xx

  • Isobel’s Basket

    Oh I love that pink lip so much. Hot pink lips are making a big comeback in my cosmetics ‘wardrobe’. I can’t believe I forgotten what a wearable colour it is. I have a very fair complexion and blue eyes so it is a complimenting colour but sometimes I guess it feels boring wearing pink when everyone else is wearing a daring red or siren orange and you just have hot pink. But it is such a pigmented colours like this that make me reconsider that notion. I recently discovered what I honestly believe to be my all time favourite lipstick (I know big call) but I seriously cannot stop wearing it or fathom how it can be so good, great colour, perfect texture and amazing staying power. If you are interested I did a review.
