EDITORS PICKS AUTUMN 2016
1 - GUERLAIN LINGERIE DE PEAU FLUID FOUNDATION
Something I noticed about this foundation was not only that it has the SPF20 but it has a Bio-Fusion technology that helps to smooth and contour the face, keeping skin beautifully hydrated at the same time. I didn’t find it difficult choosing the right shade either which is normally a time consuming event – often ending in getting something else entirely.
2 - JO MALONE BASIL & NEROLI COLOGNE
Love, love, love this fragrance! This wonderful scent is so light and airy yet grabs your attention instantly. Perhaps it’s the Brit in me that sways my thoughts to London playfulness – I can visualize myself dashing in and out of alcoves trying to avoid the showers, skipping over puddles and laughing all the way along Dover Street.
3 - ALGENIST GENIUS ULTIMATE ANTI-AGING CREAM
I’ve been using this for a while now (at least 2 months) and unlike many daily creams that simply moisture and perhaps offer a level of defense against free radicals – this actually reveals healthier looking skin. In fact my overall complexion is greatly improved after using this, I may have found a real winner I can keep using!
4 - ROUGE BUNNY ROUGE BLUSH WAND CHEEKS IN BLOOM
Once upon a time I was a steadfast powder blush girl. I felt that as my skin wasn’t the best and powder did better job covering any unevenness or flaws. I have since changed my mind thanks to this blush. A super lightweight creamy blush that glides on easily and blends beautifully. I think it is the shade that works well for fairer skin – it just gives a subtle hint of color so it’s perfect for natural days.
5 - TARTE QUENCH LIP RESCUE IN NUDE
I don’t know how anyone can choose a lip balm these days, there are literally hundreds! The key is to find one that ticks all of your personal needs, which for me is – hydrating, softening with just a touch of color that doesn’t feel heavy like a wax and I just found it!
6 - ELLIS FAAS MULLED WINE BLUSH S304
Now I have entered into the realm of liquid blush, I adore this blush from Ellis Faas. Just like her lip color, it takes just a few dots to create a beautiful healthy glow, especially great for on the go!
7 - JIN SOON DANDY NAIL POLISH
I’m not one normally to gravitate toward the more non-traditional colors for nails, but this dandy color has all the trendiness of a fashion statement with the neutral tone to be considered a classic shade and I love it.
8 - JAQUA BUTTERCREAM FROSTIG HAND CRÈME
Admittedly there are more effective hand creams for severely dry hands but I am simply addicted to the heavenly way too sweet for words scent of this one and it definitely works well enough for a daily hand cream!
9 - BOBBI BROWN THE NUDE LIBRARY 25TH ANNIVERSARY EYESHADOW PALETTE
I have always been one to champion more limited collections when it comes to eye shadow palettes, but once in a while there will be a star product that deserves attention. This “Nude Library” Anniversary palette is filled with all the shades you need with subtle variations in shade and finish to tweak your natural look for your change of mood, event or season.
