My favourite lipsticks

Hi Cherubs!

Another make up post for you this time I wanted to share with you my favourite lipsticks, from deep dark reds to my fave nude! I hope you enjoy <3

Chanel - rouge coco - rivoli 21 | This gorgeous dark red shade from Chanel is ultra hydrating and feels so comfortable on the lips. This is one of the darkest reds I own but its a favourite! The rouge coco range gives your lips a plump look with gorgeous colour, check them out here.

Chanel - rouge allure velvet - la favorite |  The rouge allure velvet range gives a matte finish but still comfortable on the lips. La favorite is a beautiful peachy pink that I constantly wear throughout the summer time! You can buy this shade here.

Mac - lipstick - gotta dash | This is one of my first lipsticks from Mac which I bought a long time ago, I don't think they sell it anymore which really upsets me as this is the perfect light coral shade i've found. Hydrating and it gives a lovely sheen, its perfect for holidays as it looks so good with a sun kissed glow.

Mac - matte lipstick - honeylove | Well at least I know this shade will be around for years to come as its a cult fave! I think honey love is the loveliest nude for olive skin to give that 90s look. Shop it here.

YSL - rouge pur couture - 01 le rouge | This is YSL first red lipstick and it honestly is the best most timeless red you can buy. Its luxurious and feels so effortless to apply. Whenever you see me with a red lip I guarantee it will be this lipstick. You can buy it here.

I would love to know your favourite lipsticks!

How to layer in summer

Hi Cherubs!

I love summer time especially here in California, the weather is spot on! But whenever there is a cold breeze about the first thing I grab is a lightweight shirt. Its the perfect cover up and I love how a denim shirt can toughen up an otherwise girlie outfit like this!

Top - Zara
Shirt - Gap (old)
Skirt - Mango (old)
Sandals - Miista

Laura Mercier - Loose setting powder review

Hi Cherubs!

I am finally getting round to reviewing this loose setting powder from Laura Mercier which you may have already seen in my June monthly favourites, so I guess you already know that I bloody love this product. <3

Product | I have used a fair few loose powders and always been left feeling slightly underwhelmed, especially because my main reason for using them is to combat excess oil and keep my face looking matte all day. Bloggers adore this so I decided to give in to the hype and give Sephore all my money. I apply this after my foundation and concealer and add it to areas where my skin is oily (under eye, nose area, and forehead) to set my make up and give my skin a matte finish. The product is easy to use, just spill some powder into the lid and apply with a brush and voila! My skin looks flawless not cakey or powdery after application and feels like velvet. I've also noticed that my skin stays matte all day so no top ups at work! This is such a great product and I actually think this is my first purchase from Laura Mercier! 

Packaging | I think the packaging is great for this product, super sleek and it feels quite substantial. The powder dispenser is pretty good, you simply just spill some product into the lid, only small amounts gets dispensed so no product waste. Love it!

Price | Now for a powder this is pretty steep, $38 to be exact! Is it worth the money? Yes I think so and so do many other bloggers. I reckon its going to last me a long time because I only use a small amount and you can dispense as much as you need so there is no pouring money down the drain. If you love a matte finish to your make up I would highly recommend this powder! You can purchase it here.

Have you tried this product before?

My routine for healthy & strong hair

Hi Cherubs!

I haven't done a haircare routine in a while now so I thought it was time to update you all on what products I use to keep my hair healthy and strong!

Bed Head - tigi - urban anti-dotes | I bought this shampoo and conditioner set from TJ Maxx a few months back and i've used it twice a week since, it's such a bargain for around $25! This set is for normal hair that needs a little reviving, which is me in a nutshell! You can always count on Tigi products to make your hair smell truly amazing and feel extremely touchable. This lathers up well and I find I only need one shampoo unless I am colouring my hair and then I will use too. The conditioner makes my hair smooth and eases out those knots, a perfect pair! Whenever I run out of shampoo and conditioner I never buy the same one back to back as I like to switch it up and try different scents because I get bored after using a product for a few months. Check out your local TJ Maxx (TK Maxx for all you brits!) to see what they have in store.

Wella - luxe oil | I have already spoken about this product on my blog so you will know how much I love this oil. I apply 2 pumps to damp hair before I use any heat as this oil adds a protective layer to the hair, keeping it healthy and stopping those naughty split ends from appearing. It also makes your hair feel like cashmere, its so soft seriously! Smells good, does good! You can purchase this product here.

Sebastian - shaper zero gravity hairspray | The final stage to giving my hair the perfect shine and also keeping those fly aways in place is this lightweight hairspray by Sebastian. I hate hairsprays that leave a sticky feeling on your hair and you have to immediately wash it, so I was pleasantly surprised when I first purchased this 8 months ago. It smells great and is definitely worth $19! Pick one up here.

What are your haircare must haves?

wish list | Public Desire

Hi Cherubs!

I have a gorgeous shoe wish list today from Public Desire who are seriously on it with their shoe game. However since moving to America I kinda just forgot about them, but I started following them on snapchat the other week and noticed that they now ship to the US for a flat rate of $5 which is bloody amazing! So hearing this news prompted me to check out their site and just lust over some amazing shoes, which ones are your fave?

1. Keely high heels - Pink | 2. Lucy block heels - Silver | 3. Darla metallic heel ankle boot - Grey | 4. Trisha ankle boots - Grey | 5. Katie block heel shoes - Black | 6. Lydia slingback heels - Grey |

Public Desire you are killing it, and it would appear that I have a thing for grey shoes!

Love Sarah
