We have had the opportunity to test out a few products this week and thought we would let you know what we thought of them. One of the benefits of working in this industry is getting the odd sample so here we go.
Lee Staffords Dry Shampoo – Light Brown
Lee worked for years trying to perfect this formula for brown hair – and the result is great! I haven’t used it myself now that I’m a blondie, but my flatmate and the fella both have, and it works. Plus – it smells fabulous! I believe everyone should have a dry shampoo in their stock cupboard for those days you just don’t have time to wash your locks…and this one would be my choice for you brunettes out there. A great little product. £5.49 from Boots (and other retailers)
This product was a complete sell-out EVERYWHERE when it was launched last month (with a waiting list of 8000 at Boots!) and the reason is simple. It’s magic. This instant line filler plumps and smooths away lines and really, really works. You can get it here for just £10.25 – but you may have to wait a week or two. Well worth it.
Hypnose Mascara by Lancome
My absolute must-have product is a good mascara, and this one is my favourite to date (and I have tried a few!). The formula is thick but not gloopy, lengthens and boots your lashes and doesn’t come off during a night out. Plus, the brush is shaped perfectly, meaning application is easy and it doesn’t end up all over your face. I was introduced to this by my best friend a while ago and have not looked back since. Try it! £20.50 from House of Fraser.
BellaPierre Cleansing Milk by Beauty Bay
Great product. Removes make up leaving skin super-soft. Contains no parabens (we like this), is hydrating and is perfect for all skin types. It’s not cheap, but your skin is worth it! £34.99 from BeautyBay.com
Fashion Fawn by Nails Inc (for InStyle)
This came free with this months InStyle magazine and I LOVE IT! Best neutral shade I’ve found in ages, and has been the only colour on my nails for the last couple of weeks. A stunning taupe colour that would look great on anyone…and as always with Nails Inc, the product glides on with ease, the brush is shaped perfectly and it lasts. Awesome. Plus it’s technically free. WIN.
