Feel of the les beiges Chanel foundation Review

So i've put myself on a beauty spending ban. This might seem easy but for a beauty addict like myself it is proving very hard! I have decided to try and use up my existing products before buying things I don't actually NEED. So far I have managed a week without spending which is quite an achievement for me! But this doesn't stop me from window shopping and I have created a wishlist of things I would love to treat myself to when I feel that  I have managed to save up some money and won't feel so guilty about!

Here is my beauty wishlist for this Spring:

1. Makeupforever HD foundation - Guru makeup/PAM approx £30

Makeupforever HD foundation
I have been desperate to try this for many years but because it is only available in select stores in the UK I haven't had the chance to find my perfect colour and am too nervous ordering a shade online without seeing it first. I think I may be #127 which is a yellow medium tone but am keen to go to the makeup shops in Fulham/Shepherds Bush which stock it. I love the idea of a flawless HD base and the reviews I have seen are great. I love a smooth finish that still retains a fairly natural look so will definitely be buying some this year.

2. By Terry Rose de Rose sheer liquid blush - Space NK £40

By Terry Rose de Rose sheer liquid blush

I literally fell in love with this liquid blush the moment I tried it but its hefty price tag has always stopped me purchasing it. I first tried it years ago on a make up course and the texture, smell and finish are stunning. The rose smell and light feel make it feel instantly luxurious. It has a luminous satin finish which instantly gives radiance to the skin. I love the pink shade for a winter glow and the coral/bronze tone for summer so I will definitely be investing in at least one colour this year.

3. Chanel les beiges retractable kabuki brush - House of Fraser £33

The new Chanel Les Beiges powders are stunning (can be used as powder, foundation or bronzer) and the most exciting launch for me is the brush that comes with them! The retractable kabuki is perfect for travel and the bristles are incredibly soft. I had a look and feel of the brush last week and could not believe how luxurious it was! It is not cheap but the feel of the brush hairs, the handy size and the beautiful packaging make this a must have for me! I am a total brush addict and currently own nothing like this so I am very excited about purchasing this.

4. Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders - Space NK $45

Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders

These powders will be launching in Space NK UK this week and I am so excited about them! Goss makeupartist recently did a review on his channel and the way the product sat on his skin and improved luminosity assured me that I would need to invest in them. I have been keen to try something from this brand especially the skin products and brushes because the quality looks fantastic and it is exclusive to only a few places in the UK including Space NK and Liberty London. The powder comes in a variety of shades including Radiant Light a golden beige colour which looks perfect for Summer and Luminous Light a gorgeous champagne pearl tone. The powders are created to refine the appearance of the complexion and produce multi dimensional luminescence on the face - perfection!

5. Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate serum - £35

Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate serum

This night treatment claims to improve radiance and the effects of ageing. I love night products because I wear so much makeup in the day for work that it is truly the only time that I can treat my skin. I usually use my regular moisturiser at night so I would love to invest in something more luxurious for the evening. It contains essential oils and 99.8% naturally derived ingredients. It is recommended to use 1-2 drops per night so despite the price tag I think this would be a worthwhile investment and many of the reviews have claimed that the skin looks instantly improved in the morning!

What is on your beauty wish list? Have you tried any of mine?

Hair oil product with LED accelerator Colour sustain shampoo Elixir Ultime hair

I can't believe its April already! As a new month begins, I have suddenly run out of some essentials so I thought I would post my empties and whether I will be repurchasing or not! I have included some skincare, haircare and general grooming products. Luckily I haven't run out of any makeup pieces as I have been stocking up on mascaras and powders just in case of emergency ;)

Here are my empties! L-R Dermalogica soothing eye makeup remover, Blanx white shock toothpaste with LED accelerator, Mitchum advanced control deodorant stick, Xen Tan dark lotion, Ojon Colour sustain shampoo, Kerastase Elixir Ultime hair oil.

I have had some of these over a year whilst others have been recent finds so here is a run down of what I won't be repurchasing and why!

Mitchum advanced control - Again this is not a bad product by any means but running around at work I was not kept completely dry with this product so I am still on the hunt for the perfect deodorant! The mitchum brand has impre…

Handbag Answer from the Style Coach

Question came in: I have a Juicy bag with torn piping. I have had a really hard time trying to get it fixed. Nordstrom said that they can't do it and all the leather repair places here in Salt Lake say they can't do it. wants $150 to repair it, but it's only a $200 bag. The article says it's easy to do. Where can I get it fixed without breaking the bank?Answer: I've done some investigating on this one. Find a reputable shoe repair place and ask them, they often do handbag work and are really good at leather and detail work. Additionally, you can ask where Nordstrom or Saks (depends on where you live) send their bags for repair, and go there yourself. Nordstrom is probably quoting you so much because they don't want to do it and accept the liability of it not turning out perfectly. Be open to a creative solution from your repair place of choice.Another option is to take a picture of the bag and send it to someone pretty senior at Juicy and see if they…
