Beauty Favourites | August

by

Last month, I shared some of my beauty favourites with Just My Look and you guys really liked it. I got lots of feedback on the metallic purple lipstick from LA Girl that I shared in the post. That lipstick is still a firm favourite, but I’ve got a few new additions in my makeup bag. Lip Dual Lipstick_Beauty_Leighton Denny_In the NudeWearing: Leighton Denny – In the Nude Lip Dual Lipstick

Beauty Favourites August1. Roxanne Campbell Nail Lacquer – Off to Jamaica

I’ve been playing with nail colours this summer – contrary to the plan of sticking to white all summer…well, since I’ve gone down that route, I said YES to a new brand – Roxanne Campbell. Corals and orange tones are quite nice on dark skin tone and this shade proves my point. You can see me wearing the nail varnish on Instagram.

2. Leighton Denny – In the Nude Lip Dual Lipstick

This lipstick is perfect for everyday wear and it’s my current go-to for work and casual days. The lip dual gives two choices of either a sheen or matte finish.

3. L.A.B.2 Just Face Kabuki Brush & Read My Lip Brush

I’ve heard a lot of good stuff about the L.A.B.2 brushes. I’m not going to go on like a beauty pro, so for regular consumers like myself (non-MUAs), all I can say is the Kabuki brush feels like magic. This multi-tasking tool for powders is honestly a secret weapon to a flawless finish.

4. The Vintage Cosmetic Company Cuticle Nipper 

Just because it’s rose gold, this cuticle clipper already won me over. True story, my cuticles grow almost at the speed of light, and yes I DIY my nails most of the time. I wonder why I never had one of these.

5. Pegasus Parfum No 39

…you know that feeling you get when you use something you haven’t used in a while and you are like ‘YES’, I remember why I got you in the first place. This fragrance is an oldie, but it still a HIT.

6. Pink Parcel Eyebrow Kit (monthly subscription)

I’ve always been a pencil kinda girl with my brows. Don’t judge me. I recently started playing with this eyebrow kit recently. It’s added on extra minutes to my make-up time, but I do like the result.

I hope you have enjoyed reading Beauty Favourites August as much as I have enjoyed sharing all these new bits with you.

Discover: A Fragrance to Love

by

I come to you with a product I’m absolutely excited about. Those who know me know I’m totally into luxury perfumes/fragrances and I have a nose for pretty good ones too. On that note, let me introduce you to this beautiful number from the Aura-Soma Pegasus fragrances.

Aura-Soma-No-39

Pegasus No 39 c/o – Aura-Soma

Aura-Soma Pegasus fragrances demonstrate the visual and non-visual energies of colour, created using only natural and organic essential oils extracted from plants and flowers evoking a beautiful aroma and the potential to enlighten the wearer’s mood. We all know modern perfumery have deviated from using natural materials which make the Pegasus fragrances very unique. I discovered the brand at an event and I knew it was up my street.

I was able to try all the eight fragrances in the collection and my favourite is No 39 – Liquid Elixir. The colourful bottles have references to individual well-being. The No 39 should evoke memories of joy and indulgence as well as warmth and a sense of ‘healing’ and ‘nurture’. The colour combination relates specifically to ancient Egypt and wisdom, the “Egyptian Bottle” carries Egyptian Jasmine, Somalia Incense and Amber notes. The Top, middle and base notes Bergamot, Lemon, Geranium, Black Pepper, Nutmeg, Ylang Ylang, Vanilla, Cedarwood.

They are all unisex perfumes, but apart from 39, I find 30, 56 and 80 are more feminine than the others.

The Aura-Soma range is £85, though a little pricey, they are totally beautiful – also perfect for day and night. The beauty of expensive parfumes is that last longer which makes them totally worth their price. I personally think everyone will find one they can relate to from the collection, maybe you could include this on your Christmas wishlist ;-).
