The new faves
Holidays are a great time to try out new products and I could not wait to get off the plane to try out my new duty free beauty bits. I do think duty free is my favorite part about holidays. I think the place is magical, it's like being a kid in a sweet shop right? Chanel beauty and myself have a love thing going on and I decided to try out Vitalumiere as I do love the Aqua but felt I needed a little bit more coverage. This is a really lovely foundation but be warned it's glowy. More so than the Vitalumiere Aqua. So much so that even me, that loves a glow had to put some translucent powder down the t-zone. Shocking. However the powder did also manage to keep it in place with the warmer weather.
Buy this foundation if you are a sucker for lovely packaging, like a nice bit of coverage but also a dewiness and nice evened out skin. Also it smells of lovely yummy Chanel goodness. I could sniff this all damn day.
Yes it is pricey, but this is your lovely face and it deserves a nice foundation.
To balance out the budget the second product is a gorgeous bronzer from Super Dry! Now, I had heard about this from a very classy cousin of mine and so when I eye balled it in the duty free having failed to spot it in Dundrum I added it to the basket. This bronzer is great bargain buy. It's quite a deep bronzer for me but if you go light handed it blends out nice and evenly. No I did not need another bronzer, but I'm like a magpie when it comes to them. Maybe a bronzer post is next?
Chanel Vitalumiere is €43.00 so maybe a duty free purchase? Or you could get lots of Boots points!
Superdry Bronzer €14.99 a nice price available at Superdry stores or online.
