Serious Summer Loves

With all of the sadness that is evident with the riots I feel the need to escape to a simpler place, my Miss Jones place.
In the grand scheme of things the following post is irrelevant and totally self indulgent, but if this creates some escapism for even a few minutes to readers then I am happy.

I'm going to dive straight into a few products that I am loving right now. I have been using these almost everyday since early June-ish and they have been my stars of the summer. I think it's time to do my summer raves as my attentions will soon be turning to Autumn/Winter 11 collections...yes already!

First up summer just isn't summer without a kick ass bronzer. This MAC Studio careblend pressed powder in Lush - Light Bronze is a LE rosy pink brown £19.

It has more of a glow to it than other MAC bronzers I have tried with the pink undertones it adds a shot of a healthy glow
Next up GLOSS! Estee Lauder Pure colour gloss 49 Frivolous Pink sparkle £16. This is a super pretty pink pale pink high shine gloss with fine flecks of pink/gold glitter. It doesn't give you tacky disco lips, the shimmer just adds some crackin' volume to your pout.

More for the lips.. Topshop Ooh La La Lipstick £8. To anyone who has yet to try Topshop make up I urge you to do so. This is a matte peach/coral which applies really nicely. It reminds me of Barry M 53 but has a much creamier consistency. I adore it. Their nail polishes are also exceptional for value and staying power with a lovely glossy finish.

I purchased these 2 absolute bargains off the cuff on offer for 2 for £5!!! Collection 2000 Mosaic glow and sheer loose powder. I'm shocked at how much I love these 2 products. The powder is really finely milled and the mosaic glow could easily be compared to the Bobbi Brown Bronze shimmer brick for a fraction of the price. This adds a glow without the chunks of glitter that even MAC MSFs sometimes do. Highly recommend both of these.

I am going to do the rest as a part 2, I'm conscious this is becoming increasingly picture heavy. What products have stood out for you this summer?

Much Love

  12. Oh these look so so fab. I love a nice multi-tonal bronzer it always makes you look really sunkissed and illuminated. I haven't tried any Topshop make up, I feel like I'm really missing out. in truth I havent been in topshop in forever, which is like a cardinal sin or something but I really need to go investigate I think.
