Jouer Best Of Lip Toppers

I've made it pretty clear before that the term 'Lip Topper' winds me up as I assumed they we're literally just sparkly lipglosses - nothing ground breaking there right? But I'm a sucker for anything sparkly and the Jouer Lip Toppers are exactly that. This Christmas they've launched a gift set including 5 minis of their lip toppers plus two limited edition ones.

I caved.

Well actually BeautyBay were doing 30% off and I literally could not say no. No seriously though, if you didn't buy anything from them on black Friday I applaud you.

There's no better way to test the hype than with minis of every single colour, am I right? Firstly, I wanted to take back everything I said (well mostly), they're not a lip gloss but nor are they actually lip colours. The Jouer Lip Toppers have a lightweight, almost dry oil consistency and are ram packed with glitter and shimmer, leaving the lips somewhat metallic (depending on how much product you apply). These products are your best friend if you have thin lips because the reflects make your lips look fuller and plumper! Oh and they smell of sweet vanilla, yes yes yes.

Despite being full of sparkle, the toppers are comfortable to wear and don't feel gritty or grainy like I was expecting. They feel hydrating and smooth, great for pairing with drier liquid lipsticks.

Out of this set, the colours that speak to me are Rose Gold and Skinny Dip and I have a feeling they will be the ones that get the most use. But I'm open to testing all of them and finding the best ways to wear them.

Absolutely perfect for this time of year and this set is ideal to gift to the glitter & beauty lover in your life.

If you'd like to see how I would wear these leave me a comment of which colours and I will film a video for my channel.

It's been a while, I know. Our first show is opening in two weeks and we're in full rehearsal mode and all I can think about is dark oohs and triple wing time steps. However, recently I've received the Roxanne Cambell Winter Collection and I needed to share it with you.

Firstly, if you're wondering who Roxanne Cambell is, she's a nail professional to countless A-listers and has worked backstage at many London and New York fashion weeks - so yeah, she knows her stuff. 

These polishes are a one coat wonder and dry quickly, perfect for busy-bodies or for the impatient (I am both). The formula is opaque and easy to apply too.

Let's talk shades. As soon as September hits I am packing all the summer pastels and hot fiery reds away and instead reaching for dark berries and neutrals. This collection features a rich burgundy, a deep purple and a soft grey, so it covers all bases. I have been wearing these on rotation since I received them.

The winter collection retails at £30. However, they can be purchased individually for £10 - an absolute steal for the quality. They can be purchased at www.roxannecambell.com

These would make a great Christmas present to the nail polish lover in your life.

With Autumn being my favourite time of year, I've decided to do a three-part series consisting of skincare, make up and fashion picks that I've been loving since we kissed summer goodbye. Kicking things off with skincare...

My skin gets super dry this time of year, so I like to start by cleansing using a creamy, nourishing cleanser like the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. It removes dirt and make up leaving your skin clean but not stripped. If you suffer with dry skin and want extra exfoliation try using it with a facial cleansing brush like Panasonic 3-in1 Micro Foaming Facial Cleansing brush. The combination of the two will leave your skin soft and clean.

Next up I like to go in with an oil, my favourite for a while has been the Sukin Rose hip Oil. It's super hydrating and leaves my skin feeling baby soft. Rose hip has lots of skincare benefits such as anti-aging properties, reduces scarring as well as improving skin texture and tone. As it is quite oily, it's not ideal for just before make up, so I opt for something lighter like the Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA, it's a zero fuss moisturiser that acts as a great base for make up. It has no scent and doesn't claim to work miracles, I think that's why I love it so much - it's affordable and does the job. 

As well as manual exfoliation, I once a week use the Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. You leave it on for ten minutes and it helps remove any dead skin cells and visibly brightens the skin.  

Lastly, my lips always need some TLC this time of year. Berry liquid lipsticks and the cold weather plus the classic freshers flu wreak havoc on my lips, so I've been slathering on lip balm. My favourite at the minute is the Glossier Birthday Balm Dotcom, it smells like cake and it even has tiny little specks of glitter in it!

I've said this a million and one times before, Autumn is my favourite season for beauty and fashion trends. I love gravitating to warm, orange, fallen-leaves inspired tones on eyes, lips and even cheeks. Naturally, the first post in this series is a lip post. I find lips the easiest to do when it comes to following trends so here are a selection that I've been swearing by:

1. Barry M Matte Me Up - Go To
I've done a full review of the Barry M Matte Me up's a while back but they continue to be one of the best formula of liquid lipsticks on the high street. This shade is a lovely warm brown, that gives a look of something on the lips without being too in-your-face. Paired with a matte brown shadow and you've got an everyday monochromatic look. 

A cult favourite in the beauty world, this shade is slightly redder in tone but still pulls quite brown. In Terms of longevity, this is not the best formula - you will need to re-apply every couple of hours. However the colour is super flattering on most skin tones.

3. NYX Lingerie liquid lipstick - Exotic 
I've been after a rusty/brick red for a while and this one from NYX has hit the nail on the head. I often get asked what lipstick I'm wearing when I'm sporting this. It's a red without being as high-maintanence as a true red. I've been pairing this with a rich warm, coppery eye.

Something slightly cooler in tone but still has an autumn vibe about it. When I think of this shade I instantly imagine a high neck, over-sized knit jumper, top knot and minimal make up. It's interesting and unexpected, which is why it made it onto my Autumn picks. 

TOP-BOTTOM: Cashmire, Exotic, Lolita, Go-to.

What are your ride-or-die autumnal lip colours?

IT Cosmetics CC Cream review

I must have missed the memo that IT Cosmetics had landed in Selfridges London because I genuinely lost my shit when I saw the counter. I'd seen so much about the brand and as far as I was aware, the only place I could purchase it from was QVC. I'm never one for guessing my shades online and purchasing on a whim, if I'm spending that much on something I want to know what I'm getting, so ultimately I never bought anything. 

One stand out product that gets a stupid amount of attention online is the CC Cream, not to be confused with those light-weight, sheer coverage, tinted moisturiser-esque products that brands released a couple of years a go. Oh no. This packs some serious full coverage punch, whilst being SPF50(!!) AND also contains anti-aging and super hydrating properties. 

I have been reaching for daily. It's super easy to throw on and I don't have to worry about sunscreen and moisturiser, I can save time in the morning because it's all included. I usually go for more of a medium coverage for every day, one pump of this is more than enough so I know I wont be going through the 32ml very quickly.

I'm using the shade light, despite the lightest shade they do actually matches me perfectly because I am partial to a bit of fake tan, so I opted for the darker shade to make sure my neck matched my body. 

In all honesty, the finish doesn't blow me away. Not in a Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation/Nars Sheer Glow kinda way. It's just pretty average, ideal for everyday wear but you'd need another foundation if you wanted a more flawless evening finish. Perhaps it's my stressed, shitty skin at the minute but I don't love it, I'm just reaching for it because it's there.

Would I repurchase? Probably not and now that I've mentioned it, I think I might repurchase the CT one.
