Beauty Faves What Olivia Did
The month's staples...

There seems to be a bit of a common theme this month, doesn't there? Think peachy sorbet hues, warm bronzes (finding something for this pasty face wasn't an easy task)- and a splash of orange to really kick start the summer spirit whilst we're at it too. Blushes have been my main point of 'experimentation' this month (wow Liv, you really are wild)- with Clinique's cheek pop in 'Melon Pop' and C Tilbs (yup, again) in 'First Love' adding a subtle warmth to an otherwise 'English rose' base (with thanks to the Nars Creamy Concealer and Benefit's Boi-ing, for insuring it's pretty flawless too). For lips I've been turning to the Collection festival lips selection, with their Field day lippy in 'Tulip' being one of the prettiest pinks in my little collection. Finally, for my nails I've been loving lots of corals, and 'Tiddly' by Butter has been one of my top go to's, and not just because of the name. I promise.

Now, I'm a bit of a beauty box novice if I'm being totally honest. The amount of choice is a little scary, and having so many new brands to pick from and know what's 'right' can be a tiny bit daunting. But, low and behold- the Love Me Beauty box- a box that has pretty much altered my views on the unknown world of beauty, by delivering some pretty lovely bits in box form. Not only did it pack some old favourites in new shades (I'm looking at you Lord & Berry kohl liner), but meant I could sample the infamous Better Than Sex mascara and fall in love with new brand on the block, Cailyn, and their bloody brilliant lip tint too.

The skinny...

This month has definitely been about new routine, and for the first time in my life- I've been using one sole set of products for more than 3 days, and I think it's paid off. These little routine-makers have come in the shape of the Verso travel kit (the first time I've used Retinol in my skin care too) and includes a miniature cleanser, day cream and night cream which have settled my skin, reduced redness and made it feel nicer than it has in a long while, huzzah! On top of that I've occasionally been turning to the gorgeously silky Origins A Perfect World cleanser, and always using the Original Skin serum (it's my second bottle already)- as it seems to hit spots as soon as they make an appearance. I've finally been loving the Fresh Lotus eye gel for waking up tired peepers, especially as the cucumber makes for a refreshing boost- mmm mm!

and the big 'ol box (but not as you know it)...

Okay, another box- in a month, once you got a good thing going, right? This limited edition Get the Gloss box is a little different, and I think that's why I love it. Packed with lots of healthy foodie favourites (oats, chia seeds and green tea anyone?) This box makes for the perfect means of trying some health boosting super foods and goodies, without feeling too confused and looking a little lost in Sainsburys. Although I'm yet to try the chia seeds (mixed feels towards these little grey balls), I'd love to hear some recipe suggestions on how I can include them in something- but all in all totally love the concept behind this cheeky body boosting box!

  6. I've wanted to get the Nars creamy concealer for ages but when I went to the counter the lady that tested it on me completely butchered it - she put it on top of the concealer and powder I already had on and it ended up looking so awful! As for chia seeds, my friends blend them into smoothies!

  10. Love Boing concealer! And I was so tempted by 'Tiddly', the consistency on those nail polishes are amazing. Unfortunately I'm also a bit unsure about chia seeds, but I'm sure there are some recipes out there, good luck!

  11. Ouuu you picked out some great items!!! :)
    I too have been wearing more bronzy and peachy tones. But not too peachy cause I'm still quite pale and peachy tones don't look especially good on me. But a girls gotta try right? ;)

    Ps: that's a big ass bronzer lol

  12. How come your Boi-oing is different from the regular packaging?

  13. Don't get me wrong, I loooove your beauty finds (especially that dope nail color option) but I got even more excited when I saw the mini-snack haul - strawberries and oats/chia, yes!

  14. that nail color is so gorgeous! i need to bring my oranges back out again too x

  15. Chia seeds are a strange one - I have so far only eaten the Chia Pods that you can get, which are breakfast versions a bit like a Rice Pudding mixed with a Muller Fruit Corner (I'm really not describing this well!). I think they're something that if you eat them often enough, you might grow to love them, especially as they are so good for you! I shall definitely be checking out that new beauty box, thanks for the tip I hadn't heard of it! x
