New Beauty Buys + WIW - A Stunner Of A New Top

my midlife fashion, caudalie the des vignes body and hair nourishing oil


Morning ladies, time for a quick beauty products update with some pieces that I've been sent as well as items I've bought myself.  

Starting with this gorgeous fragranced body & hair dry nourishing oil from Caudalie, which would be absolutely perfect for packing & taking on holiday.  Not only will the dry oil deeply nourish & repair sun drenched skin & hair but due to it's light scent of white musk, neroli flower & ginger it makes the perfect summer fragrance.

Talking of fragrances after my last visit with a friend to Jo Malone, I couldn't resist purchasing this new cologne.  If you're a fan of some of my other favourite Jo Malone scents (see here) you'll love this one with it's spicy undertones.

I also treated myself to this shower oil, which is ideal for getting my skin holiday ready due to it's smooth & softening properties & is the perfect scent for layering with my new perfume.

Plus if you're looking for a great body wash for your other half then I recently bought hubby this one & he hasn't stopped raving about it.

The other new product I've been trying out is the J. One Jelly Pack Concentrated Multi-Functional Primer Gel, a Korean beauty product, which if you look online has gone some amazing reviews.  Basically it's a great multi-tasking product that acts as a primer whilst hydrating, firming & smoothing your skin.  Not to mention ideal for packing when travelling light as it's just one product instead of four & it can even be layered with your night cream of an evening.  

As you'd expect the product is a clear gel that absorbs quickly into the skin & feels lightweight to wear.  Although it can for the first few minutes leave a slightly tacky feel to your face (hence it's priming qualities) but this will disappear so don't panic!  I've found the product to be perfect for smoothing & evening out skin tone making it ideal for providing a good base on which to apply my make up.

Which leads me onto a couple of new make up purchases.  Firstly the above lipstick, which I've always been put off from trying as it just looked too dull & brown but it's definitely more pink once on & gives quite a nice natural colour that is perfect for teaming with some of the darker & more stronger eye shadows I wear such as this one.

And as I'm not a huge fan of matte lipsticks & prefer a little sheen then the above lip gloss is ideal for wearing over my new lippie.

Back to clothing & today it's all about a stunning new top I've been sent from Reverie Clothing in the most stunning royal blue colour.

This simple but elegant top is perfect for dressing up a simple maxi skirt like I'm wearing today or alternatively would look fab paired with some denim jeans, especially white & styled with tan accessories.

As you can see from the pictures the detailing is all in the neckline with the stunning asymmetric design that is incredibly flattering & can either be worn on or off the shoulder.  In terms of sizing I'm wearing a small, which I would say fits a UK 8-10 & as well as the royal blue it also comes in the most stunning shade of hot pink.  Based in Ireland Reverie will shortly launching in stores but in the meantime you can also get in contact with them via their Facebook or Instagram pages.

So ladies anyone made any new beauty products that they'd care to share?  I'd love to hear about new purchases that you feel are making a difference to your beauty regime.
