One of my favourite parts of blogging is having the opportunity to test out new products. As a self-proclaimed product junky, getting to try out the latest and greatest from your favourite brands is pretty awesome! Over the last few weeks I started thinking about some of my new favourite products. As I started putting the products together, I realised they all have one thing in common – they’re purple! From aubergine nails to lilac lips, purple is hot this fall!
Purple Is Hot For Fall
I struggle with my eyelashes. They’re thin and light in colour which means that I NEED to wear mascara! So much so, that anytime my sister sees me with fake eyelashes, she says “you’re really someone who would seriously benefit from lash extensions, aren’t you?” – thanks sis. Maybelline New York Push Up Angel is the newest innovation in brush design. Featuring a wing-like curve, the brush features a strategic blend of short and long bristles. The shorter volumize lashes from the root upward, while the longer ones stretch each hair into an outward direction.
eos hand lotion now comes in a new fragrance – Delicate Petals! One of my faves for on-the-go, this clutch-friendly, eye catching purple packaging contains the perfect lightweight, fast-absorbing and non-greasy hand lotion. The Delightful fragrance has a floral aroma with notes of Apple Blossom, Anjou Pear and Valencia Orange.
Urban Decay has just launched the coolest new product – Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow! Available in 8 shades, I’m drawn to ‘Magnetic’ – a purple with iridescent sparkle. You can create sublter looks or layer and build the formula for more intense 3-D metallic effects. Let’s talk lips! Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick is to die for! This lipstick with an eight-hour wear time has a featherweight, comfortable formula that stays put and keeps colour looking as fresh and flawless as the first swipe. My fave? Purple obvi. This is Some Nerve.
Since the launch of Urban Decay Vice lippies, I have been obsessed. That’s why when Urban Decay recently launched the Vintage Capsule Collection to celebrate 20 years since UD launched, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on these nine shades. My fave? Yep another purple – Asphyxia – a soft lavender with blue micro-glitter.
Rodial is one of my all time favourite skincare lines. The stem cell magic gel isn’t purple persay…but the packing is, so it counts! This hydrating gel is a 10-in-1 a multi-tasking wonder cream that uses advanced stem cell technology to protect the skin from external aggressors whilst providing the skin with vital nutrition.
