I am a self confessed beauty junkie. I get that itch when it’s been a while since something new has come across my metaphorical desk (still working on my home/office set up…)
I’ve been super lucky lately and had a lot of stuff sent my way (as well as a few bits I picked up myself). So I thought why not give a bit of a run down on some of the things I’m jazzed to come my way recently.
Makeup wise I was thrilled to hear from Axiology. They are a sustainable organic luxury lipstick brand that is committed to supporting environmental causes.
The lipsticks are packaged in gorgeous golden pop out bullets, with highly pigmented colors inside. I received two of their top sellers: Worth, a warm autumn leaves orange red and Instinct a brown toned nude with a touch of sandcastle glitter.
Speaking of glitter. I qualified for the new Influnetser voxbox in partnership with Marc Jacobs. They complementary sent over the new Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter. It’s part of their expanded coconut range, and unfortunately doesn’t have the most natural coconut scent… BUT this thing is massive, and packs a massive strobing punch. I think I am set on highlighter for life.
I have been very curious about the Deciem range, and while filling my cart with Ordinary products I decided to round it out with the ever Instagramed Niod Sanskrit Cleanser.
This is more of an intense cleanser then I thought it would be. It’s got a milky, almost soft butter style consistency and smells a lot like pretzels. I am not entirely sure if this is right for my skin type, but plan to bust it out more when I am feeling the oiliness of mid summer.
De Mamiel has been on my wish list for ages. Anthropologie started stocking the range so I took advantage on a recent sale and treated myself to the Restorative Cleansing Balm. I have used this a handful of times now and it is an experience. Super nourishing on the skin, packed with incredible ingredients and topped off with an intoxicating scent. I can’t wait to get more De Mamiel in my life, the products are a true sensory experience.
The Pr company behind BeautyRX offered to send a few things my way. I haven’t seen or heard much about this brand but am always down to try something new. The line is founded by an experienced dermatologist. They sent me a few things to address my dry sensitive skin: the Soothing Moisture Cream and the Ultra Hydrating Eye Repair Cream.
They were also very kind and let me pick out a couple things that peaked my interest. I am very enticed by the Exfoliating Green Tea Sunscreen (it sounds unlike anything I’ve ever tried before) and the Triple Vitamin C Serum (something I’ve very much need back in my routine).
The website Nature21Blvd reached out to me on Instagram if I’d be interested in testing anything from the Thank You Farmer range they stock. I selected two things from the True Water collection: the Toner and the Serum.
I have yet to test out the well reviewed True Water Serum, but have really been enjoying the Toner. It’s a hydrating, Korean style toner, that layers very well and adds a hefty amount of moisture. Nature21Blvd also socks a range of natural products from the likes of Youth to The People and Hannes Dottir along with a bevy of Korean staples.
I’ve been on a little bit of a Ouai Haircare kick. It all started with the Jen Edit Kit I tested out around Christmas time. I fell for the Finishing Cream and had to pick up a full size when the travel one ran out. I also snatched up (not pictured) the blogger favorite Hair Oil, and although it smells lovely, I prefer the one from Moroccan Oil way more
And lastly during the aforementioned sale at Anthropologie I snatched up a small Golden Waves Sea Salt Shimmer Spray from Captain Blankenship. This is the first product I’ve tried from this all natural brand and I think it’s lovely. Its has a great scent that’s not overpowering and gives a nice beachey grit to my loose waves. Oh, and it has small specks of glitter that might not last for too long, but give a glisten to the hair for a few hours.
