Favourite Beauty Products of 2019

It is always exciting to share about the favourite beauty products of the whole year, and I have been doing so for a while, here is a look back to 2018.

When I was thinking about the favourite beauty products of 2019, I had to look back at:

And, although I had an idea of of the products I wanted to include this made it even easier. Now, most of the products I have written in details about, so I will link to those posts.

1 Darphin Intral Environmental Lightweight Shield SPF 50, ( Space NK, John Lewis ) probably the best city spf I’ve ever used. Lightweight and slightly tinted, it is not greasy or oily at all, gives you that healthy glow and protects the skin. Darphin is one of my favourite beauty brands in general, and this product is not an exception.

2. Annick Goutal Rose Pompon Perfume,from Harrods and Bergdorf. It has the notes of Bulgarian rose essence, taïf rose, peony, blackcurrent, rasberry, pink pepper, woody cedar, patchouli and white musk. And it is just my dream scent, I never want to be without it, ever.

3. Rose Candles (here and here).

You must be shocked, right? Rose candles and I… Linked above you can see a few that I’ve enjoyed the most this year. Need MORE!

4. Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift Concealer (review and swatches).

Brilliant product: not heavy, doesn’t sit in the fine lines, makes you look fresh and not so tired. Isn’t it what we all want?

5. The Balm Balm Desert, £17.50 here

Not only it has been featured in 2018 but also in 2017, it is my hands down, favourite cheek product, I just use a big fluffy brush to give my face some definition and to warm it up. Balm Desert is in the middle.

6. Rouge Bunny Rouge Blush

Christmas Gift Guide 2019: Under £50 Beauty Products

I have already posted about the luxury beauty gift ideas and also the under £10 ideas.

It would make more sense to publish this feature before the affordable one but the fact is, it took me quite some time to think of the best items to include in this category because, I think, this is the category most people are interested in.  So here we are, all items are under £50.

Makeup

1. Lipsticks. By the time this guide goes up a lot of  Lisa Eldridge lipsticks,£26, will be sold out, so the ones I like, as well, are the Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Lunaison (£38 from Harrods)

2. Viseart eyeshadow palettes, from Cult Beauty.

I like Viseart eye shadows, and there are quite a few to choose from which are under £50, the one shown is the latest release, Dark EDIT Eyeshadow Palette, £30.

3.  BECCA Your Glow-To Glow Primer, Highlighter & Lip Kit, £30 from Space NK.

BECCA used to be one of my favourite brands, and while I don’t follow them that much after the company was sold to EL, I still like the good old gems from them.  You get Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Champagne Pop, Backlight Priming Filter (15ml) and  Ultimate Lipstick Love in Orchid as a part of the kit. And gotta love the festive packaging.

2019’s Best Beauty and Fashion Trends

With 2019 being almost gone, it’s interesting to look back and analyse the biggest beauty and fashion trends, so I present you a collaboration on 2019’s Best Beauty and Fashion Trends.  Feel free to share your thoughts on the trends mentioned, and tell us your favourites.

2019 has been an interesting year for the worlds of beauty and fashion, as we have never seen so many trends come and go in one year, kicking up storms of debates as to whether they are fashion forward or fashion flops. However, whilst some of these trends have indeed been questionable, there are others that we think are stunning and hope that they don’t go anywhere soon. Check out some of 2019’s best trends in the worlds of beauty and fashion and see which you want to try!

Matte Red Lips

Possibly one of the most dramatic looks that has been making an appearance on runways, TV shows and movies all around the world is the matte red lip. Whilst it never really went completely out of fashion, this fall the red lip is back in full force and can be matched perfectly with neutral fall colors to really create a dramatic stand out look that will turn heads no matter where you go. With the rise of the Anastasia Beverly Hills and other large brands using matte lipstick as a staple in their products, it’s no wonder this trend isn’t going anywhere soon.

Chunky Sneakers

This is a trend that began back in 2018 but has proved time and time again that it isn’t going anywhere – and for good reason. The chunky sneaker trend is going so strong because it’s not only fashion forward, but it also promotes a strong sense of individuality in anyone who chooses to wear them. With the rise of social media, and the incredible influence that celebrities seem to have recently, everyone is doing whatever is possible to stand out and create their own identity, and these sneakers do just that. Whilst this trend is increasingly popular with the younger generation, it hasn’t gone unnoticed by big designers and

Makeup4all Recommends: Darphin Intral Environmental Lightweight Shield SPF 50

I am not sure what took me so long to share about my favourite face SPF EVER.

Meet Darphin Intral Environmental Lightweight Shield SPF 50.

I am a big fan of the formula, it does not leave any white residue, and gives that beautiful glow. It is very slightly tinted  so will work great for light skin tones. For medium skin tones Sarah Chapman would be great.

I loved that it was also absolutely

Jo Malone Lavender & Musk Pillow Mist

I can’t think of a more appropriate beauty  product than a relaxing pillow mist for the times we are in. And it seems that I have tried most of them, and would like to share about the newest release. Jo Malone Lavender & Musk Pillow Mist which is a part of recent, LE, lavender collection.

As you would expect from Jo  Malone, it comes in a beautiful minimalist glass bottle with a pastel lilac cap. Unlike their colognes, the pillow mist comes in a round bottle. You can tell straight away that it is a
