BEAUTIFUL BEIGE // ZOYA's Nail Polish in Avery

A stunning, long lasting nude from Zoya, a brand that cares about animal care (this colour is vegan!) just as much as it does your lovely body, by leaving the chemicals behind as well.

A five free nail polish that sat well through many a pool dip on a week long holiday when I chose it as my colour of choice for a getaway last year .
 
Two coats is enough for an affective long lasting colour.

Remember to use a top coat
(I used ButterLondon's Quick Topcoat, from Boots).

THE BIG DADDY // Daddy-O, LUSH Cosmetics

Initially, the thought of slapping dark purple shampoo on my ice white tresses that my talented hairdresser spends so much time on to achieve, seemed fairly terrifying.

But I’d heard that the purple tone counteracts brassiness in blondes and I trusted the cleansing and brightening factor of the citrus lemon / lime combo in this shampoo.

Scented with a perfume reminiscent of parma violets, softening and moisturising without creating greasiness, Daddy-O is now such a firm favourite and absolute staple in my bathroom it’ll be hard to trial others to put them to the test.

BURGUNDY LIP

US Based brand MELT formed by make up artists Lora & Dana boast a lipstick based on the foundation of being cruelty & paraben free. However, there is one thing to note & that is this particular shade isn't vegan if that's important to you.

The pigmentation is strong - rich, deep & dark - just what I was looking for in the Winter months and the feel is an ultra, powdery matte.

There is a slight downside - for someone that's used to the dreamy, creamy texture that comes from a trusty, vanilla cupcake scented Mac Lipstick - I found it was a little drying. It takes a bit of patience to maintain the right balance of buff, balm & re-application.

This particular shade (6SIX6) is perfect for these current blustery, Wintery months but BANG BANG & SUMMER would be my next go-to shades as Spring starts to show its fresh face.
