Completely Cosmetics (Part 2) Lipsticks

Lipsticks add a sheer touch by setting the tone and adding colour to the face. What colour you wear is vital and is key, for when you are either out shopping or dining out at a restaurant. You can choose so many different types of lipsticks, from L’Oreal, to Revlon, Mary Kay, Chanel, MAC, Sephora, Charlotte Tilbury, the list is endless.

I love to wear pinky tones, because I am really girly-girl, I could have pink everything but my room’s not pink! I am just definite at wearing pink lipstick, as it shows my personality. I hardly wear red, only for really special occasions.

The most luminous lipstick I love is the Queen Lipstick / Matte Revolution. It gives a full plump look and the colour is pretty and bright. It has a great matte lip effect, and is totally flattering.

Fortnum & Mason Favourites


fortnum-and-mason

 

I have come across a few favourites……. Well, ALOT actually……

I couldn’t help myself but google Fortnum and Mason today. It has been a dream the past couple of years to visit London, and enjoy a high-tea there. It is on my LIST! I haven’t visited London just yet, but I know that I will get there one day! There is something about that place, coffee shops, museums, art galleries, bookshops, and so much MORE!!!! I enjoy watching “Ladies of London” every now and then too.

Find here a number of items I found on F&M’s website – ROYAL COLLECTION

I am in LOVE with this pink mug, Halycon Days Her Majesty The Queens 90th Birthday Mug in Pink

QUEENS 90th PINK MUG

Halycon Days is a London brand. It is an English fine bone china mug that is finished with an intricate trellis design. Featuring a wreath of golden flourishes that frames the inscription ‘In Celebration of the 90th Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, 21st April 2016’, this mug makes a wonderful addition to any home.

I am LOVING the GIFT section. They have a WIDE range of Bath and Body, Skincare, Handbags and purses, fragrances, jewellery, scarfs, flowers, tea, china and silverware, and hampers! There is so much to shop!!!!

There are TWO kinds of tea that I want to buy.

Queen Anne Blend Tea

Created in 1907, this popular blend is named after the monarch who was on the throne in the year that Fortnum & Mason actually began. The smooth blend of carefully selected TGFOP Assam and Ceylon FBOP teas produces a strong, smooth tea that is refreshing at any time of day.

QUEEN ANNE BLEND TEA

 

Royal Blend Tea

This luxury tea is classic. It has ceylon and assam. It was actually first blended for King Edward VII in the summer of 1902, Royal Blend has been popular ever since for its smooth, almost honey-like flavour.

ROYAL BLEND TEA

There is also a tea towel that I absolutely ADORE!

It is ‘Her Majesty The Queens 90th Birthday Tea Towel

This beautifully designed tea towel commemorates The Queen’s 90th in true royal fashion. Made in the UK from 100% cotton, this tea towel is finished in royal blue and features an inscription celebrating the UK’s longest reigning monarch.

and of course, I want to get a bag that represents……

F&M BAG

They even have a lunch box you can buy!!!!

So that’s just a few to add to my ever-growing list on what to buy. I think that when I DO get to London, I will probably need just about ten grand!!!!

Harrods and Selfridges here I come!!!! World-class shopping is EVERYTHING.

Harrods has Chanel Cosmetics such as the Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base. The velvety finish of this light cream-gel bronzer leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-bathed look. Wear it on its own, or for a hint of outdoors radiance, over or under your favourite CHANEL foundation.

A few favourites……


I am a magazine junkie….. Every time a new Royal Life magazine comes out I am off to the newsagency with excitement that they have put one aside for me…. I should probably subscribe for a year or so, but I like the idea that one is held for me at the newsagency so I can just walk down and grab my copy!

I always eagerly scout out the rest that are on display such as Cosmopolitan or Cleo even Women’s Health. I used to love Grazia, because it was very informative and always has really good pictures to look at. Unfortunately, the magazine selection at Merredin isn’t as good as the ones in Kellerberrin. They have “Majesty” and “Royalty” which I would have loved to have as well.

I recently bought the latest “In Style” magazine with Jennifer Hawkins on the front. It is the March issue and it has fabulous sections on “Shopping for the new season” and “10 Top Beauty Looks”.

I will be poring over this on the long weekend. This weekend will probably be a lazy one for me! Much to my excitement I realised there is going to be a new season of “The Real Housewives of Melbourne”!! Because I am so far away from Melbourne it keeps me feeling closer to home when I watch things like this. 💙

20160305-095008.jpg

I came across a new mascara by “Estee Lauder”. Would love any feedback if you have used it. It is very NEW and called the Sumptuous Knockout Mascara which has maximum lash impact and is blacker than black. Apparently it fannes out, lifts and defines!! This I would LOVE to try!!!! Unfortunately at the moment I can not add links to text, so it can be found on http://www.esteelauder.com.au 💄🎀❤️

20160305-095424.jpg

On page 134 there are some Beauty Hot Spots with International Editors where they have chosen some of their beauty favourites. This section you will LOVE…. Editor, Cassie Steer from the United Kingdom suggested the Garnier Perfector BB Cream…. Not too long ago I was using BB Creams as they were a moisturiser and foundation in ONE!! This cream is $14.95. They are normally not expensive, pretty cheap and are a tinted base with SPF. You can call 1300 659 359 to place your order.

20160305-100216.jpg

I want to try the Josie Maran Cosmetics Pure Argan Oil. Apparently it nourishes your face, hair, nails or anywhere where you need extra hydration! It is $66 and is found on http://www.mecca.com.au.

20160305-102116.jpg

I have posted about my MAC Face Mist on my Instagram, so when I run out I would like to do a swap and try out the Chanel Hydra Beauty Essence Mist. It is $85, which is an average price considering it’s Chanel! It is an instant hydrator and moisturises your skin at the same time!

20160305-101112.jpg

So these are a few favourites that are on my beauty list at the moment! This weekend I might find some more to add to my list as I continue to read on. Yes! I have already found a L’Oreal Paris Hair Expertise UltraRich Precious Oil Mist! Would be great for voluminous hair!!!! And styling……… These products mentioned will help to replenish the skin on the face and make you looking as fresh as ever!!!! Browse on Mecca.com.au….. You’re bound to find something you like!!!

Happy beauty product shopping!!

Now, need to catch up on Downton Abbey………
