Autumn is here and isn’t it the most wonderful season?? Everything just becomes a little more warm and cosy – the colours, the clothes, the smells, urrrggghhhh I just love it all!!! Of course I cant go any further without mentioning Christmas, my most favourite time of year eeekkkkk – I’m impatiently waiting for November to arrive so I can go into proper full ‘Christmas mode’. For the moment though, lets focus on the current season and a few of my makeup and beauty loves right now!
1. Morphe 35O Palette
Today I bring you the dreamy, gloriousness of Soleil Tan de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid in Sunkissed. This product was a little bit of a splurge for me and I have to say I came across it totally by accident whilst shopping in House of Fraser – I originally had my sights set on the Chanel Le Blanc De Chanel Multi-Use Illuminating Base (it’s still on my wish list)
I really wanted to do a short review on the Soleil Tan de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid as spending that little bit extra money on a designer make-up brand can sometimes be quite a consideration and there are so many highlighters on the market, it’s a minefield!
What Chanel says: Sheer, weightless liquid instantly brightens skin and evens out skin tone. Light-reflecting pigments provide radiance and luminosity. Botanical extracts soften, smooth and moisturize. Oil free. Fragrance free.
Last night I had the pleasure of attending the exclusive Beauty Confidential event at House of Fraser in Glasgow. This was an opportunity to discover all of this season’s key beauty trends and new products!! The event was held in the gorgeous ground floor beauty hall of the store with demonstrations and beauty tips from all the big brands including Bobbi Brown, Chanel, YSL and Lancôme – HOF’s team of brand skincare specialists were also on hand to offer mini massages. It’s never a good thing for me to be let loose at these sorts of events so its needless to say I made a few purchases by the end of the night!!
Ticket price was £10, another bargain through Itison Events and was redeemable against any purchases on the night, I also got a lovely big goody bag on my way out with lots of samples.
Here are some of the highlights from the night:
