One day to go! The last guest post of 2012…
With your skincare exclusives down last week, we are now moving onto the exquisite make up that Harrods have to offer! With the White Hall full of cosmetics, we can be sure to find the best of the best when it comes to all things beauty. First one on the mark is Dolce & Gabbana Intense Nail Lacquer – £18.00. Dolce & Gabbana Make Up present their Animalier Signature Collection; a gorgeous new limited edition range inspired by the timeless icon of the Dolce & Gabbana world: leopard print. (I think we are all guilty of secretly loving it!) Intense Nail Lacquer boasts a spectacular palette full of sophistication and is available in an abundance of smouldering tones – my favourites are definitely chocolate, honey and caramel. It is so satisfying to get the perfect finish with a manicure and found these colours easy to apply and had a great end result. What’s even better is that my nails looked great even after a week of wear because the polish has a patent finish, almost like shellac. I truly believe these little gold-topped bottles are amazing and I suggest you hint for them this Christmas!
My next little bit of beauty gold is Burberry Beauty Sheer Eyeshadow in “Pale Barley” – £23.00. This for sure is one of the smoothest eyeshadows I have come across in a long time, and when I say it sits seamlessly all day – I really mean it! Made with an innovative formula, Burberry’s eyeshadow is a comfortable and long lasting wear whilst showing flawless colour throughout the day. I found the texture so light and creamy and the neutral colour meant it was a great for everyday use. This compact case comes with a brush applicator and is ever so elegantly presented in a pouch with the traditional Burberry check embossed on the powder. Being a contact lense wearer, I always look to find eye friendly products so found it great to learn that this eyeshadow is ophthalmologist tested and is also fragrance free – and it gave me all the more reason to purchase it! I think this is a great staple for any make up bag out there girls, so go grab one now.
I don’t think anyone is ever disappointed with these products and the Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Party Collection – £62.00 hasn’t failed to impress us again! This no less than luxurious set includes everything a lady needs to get her party – ready: glowing skin, a glossy lip and a well – defined eye. For the last couple of seasons the words Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick have been on everyone’s lips, it took the nation by storm and still continues to be a favourite for our beauty picks. So what’s great about this little goody bag is that it features the award-winning product but, wait for it – in a special limited edition shade “Sandstone”. Alongside this you will find a Bare Sparkle High Shimmer Lip Gloss, Black Long Wear Mascara and Mahogany Long Wear Eye Pencil and it’s all presented in a gorgeous metallic make up bag. This exclusive really has all you need to get you sorted for those festive Christmas parties and nights out you have coming up and you know you can really on Bobbi to help you look like a million dollars every time.
Now for a great gift idea with a personal touch – the Estee Lauder Zodiac Power Compact – £65.00. These zodiac themed powder compacts are perfect for any lady’s handbag. Estee Lauder’s trusty translucent pressed powder comes encased in a Zodiac compact with a birthstone clasp – perfect for lovers of all things spiritual! What’s great about this little find is that it is refillable so you can recycle your compact forever and ever. For those of you who have tried and tested this powder will know just how natural the finish is and what a great staple it is in any make up kit. I know all you girlies will be wrapping your Christmas presents up in gorgeous wrapping paper and beautiful bows –but the guys at Estee Lauder have saved you the job! The powder comes brilliantly boxed with a velvet pouch to hold your compact. I think this one makes for a great gift for all the mums and grandmas out there!
This cosmetics company have caught my eye many a times recently, and I really think they are stepping up their game with their products. Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara – £22.50 has definitely grabbed my attention. Are you looking for a mascara that gives you instant volume, length and curl? Then this is it! This isn’t your average mascara, not only does it have a round head brush to get an all over coverage but it holds a formula that gives your lashes extreme definition for a killer silhouette. I found this mascara so easy to apply and really gave my lashes a bold look – perfect for every night out on the cards! The complex includes Cotton Nectar which helps lashes revitalise themselves and also provides protection. I love a mascara that gives my lashes volume and this one did exactly that – if you are looking for a bit of lift than this is the mascara for you!
As good as my last find was, I think I may have found a contender, and it goes by the name of Dolce and Gabbana Make Up Volumized Lashes Mascara – £23.00. Now this mascara definitely gives lashes the boost every girl wants! Whether it’s the day or night, a polished lash finishes a face of make – up and helps any woman look more sensual and youthful. Again this mascara provided a smooth application with zero clumps, which is always what seals the deal with me. Do you crave volume for your lashes and want them to look silky and lustrous? Then head to Harrods now for a mascara that gives you just that!
So that’s it for the Harrods exclusives folks! I filled you in on a dozen great products and I for sure want every one of them in my vanity case. Whether it’s a staple your looking for or something to indulge in these products definitely fit the bill. I don’t know about you guys but I have already put some of this little treasures on my Christmas list! Get shopping ladies, they won’t be around for long!
