Ciate Candy Cane House

ciate candy cane house

Ciate is really knocking it out of the park this year with their “house” collection. I have two, The Dollhouse and I used it all spring and summer and I have the Haute House and I think it’s all I’ll be using all autumn and winter. Now, they’ve launched an amazing kit for Christmas, the Candy Cane House.

The Candy Cane House is a collection of four seasonal inspired polishes, they’re glitters that have a Christmassy scent and name.

Candy Cane Open

The white glitter is Snow Fall, the green and red glitter is Candy Craze, the gold is Tangled Tinsel and the multi-coloured glitter is Ginger Snap. I love the names and I think this set would be perfect for party season because it’s all the polishes you need.

It’s priced at ¬£25 (link).

MUA Peel Off Base Coat

MUA Peel Off Base Coat

Whoever thought of a peelable base coat for nails, you are a genius and I salute you! I love me some glitter nail polishes but they’re a real pain to remove and now we’re getting closer to the festive season and its time to dig out the glitters again.

MUA has recently launched a peelable base coat and it does exactly what it says. I used this the other night with glitter polish and I managed to peel it off the next morning without any hassle. This isn’t the base coat you buy to use generally because polish will not last past a day at the most but its perfect for glitter.

I have a top tip for using this base coat, paint it on, let it set and then start painting the polish straight away as it will start to peel after a while when its on its own.

Have you tried it? Will you be buying it for the seasonal period?

Nails Inc. Nailkale Regents Park*

nails inc nailkale regents park

¬†If you read my blog regularly you’ll know I’m a massive fan of Nails Inc. I was really lucky to receive a couple of Nailkale products a few weeks, ago you can see a full post here. I was¬† incredibly lucky to be sent a couple of the actual colours to try and I can safely say I’m in love with the shades, the range and the formula.

nails inc nailkale regents park

Regents Park* is a gorgeous bright, vibrant hot pink. It reminds of Shoreditch but it’s slightly brighter. I love it and I think it will become my go to pedicure colour. The formula of the Nailkale polishes are amazing. This picture is only one coat and it’s not a super thick layer, the colours are so opaque I don’t need to use two coats. Also they dry incredibly quickly, I would say they dry quicker than normal nail polishes.

I have wrote quite a bit about the goodness of Kale in the nail polishes and you can read about it here and here.

I cannot recommend this polish enough, I love the colour, I love formula, I just love the brand in general!

You can buy it here.

Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide*

laura mercier smooth finish foundation flawless fluide my beauty notes blog review uk

If you read my blog regularly, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of Laura Mercier. I’ve never been disappointed by Laura Mercier,¬†everything I’ve used has always been really fantastic. When I discovered Laura Mercier was launching a new foundation, I was obviously quite excited and I’ve been testing it over the past few weeks so I can give you a comprehensive review.

In short I really, really like the Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide. Firstly, I love the shade range, the choice of shades is huge there’s a good chance you’ll find a match. The consistency is really thin and runny (think Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua) and it has to be given a good shake before using so the ingredients can mix together.

For reference I have¬†combination skin,¬†my t-zone is oily and gets shiny quite quickly but¬†the rest of my face¬†is dehydrated. This is settles to a matte finish but not a horrible dry, cakey matte look but natural almost leaning towards dewy. It makes me looks healthy and awake but not at all shiny or greasy. It lasts well over eight hours on me without oxidising or getting shiny, I didn’t this foundation most days and it still looked good at the end of the day.

The coverage is very buildable, you can get a sheer finish just by applying a small amount but it can be built up to medium coverage just by adding more layers but it doesn’t look heavy.

I recommend this foundation to all skin types because it’s matte enough for oily skin but it’s still hydrating and it looks very natural. I think you really need to get a counter and get matched because it’s fab.

TIGI Hair Reborn Reparative Nocturnal Therapy*

tigi nocturnal hair treatment overnight hair treatment

TIGI’s latest hair mask, Hair Reborn Reparative Nocturnal Therapy,¬†is designed that needs a little extra TLC because it’s been damaged through the sun, heat styling or just general neglect. We’re all guilty of skipping heat protection or using harsh products so it’s good to have an intensive mask in your beauty stores to pamper you locks. As the name would suggest this mask is designed to be used overnight. Around once a week, before bed, you emulsify two to three pumps and massage it into the mid-lengths and ends and then sleep on and shampoo out in the morning and the formula is designed to avoid any product on your pillow. Among the ingredients is Keratin, Kervais and Babassu Oil which seals damaged cuticles and therefore gives a smoother look to the hair.¬†It also claims to rejuvenate the hair.

I’ve only used it a couple of times so it’s too early to stay if it’s having a long term effect to my hair by rejuvenating it but I can say it made my a lot smoother in texture and appearance and my hair was super shiny.

Will you be picking this mask up?

Leighton Denny Hollywood Collection

leighton denny hollywood collection

Most of the Autumn/Winter collections are starting to launch and one of my personal favourites is Hollywood Collection from Leighton Denny. If you read my regularly, you’ll know I’m a big fan of Leighton Denny care and colour products so I thought I would show the gorgeous Hollywood Collection.

leighton denny Who Are You Wearing

First up is Who Are You Wearing which looks like a gorgeous bronzy gold shade with a gold shimmer. I think this will be perfect for the Christmas party season.

leighton denny My Name In Lights

Next is one of my personal favourites from the collection, My Name Is Lights. It looks like a super sparkly glitter. I think this will be hugely popular because it looks a bit different to all the other Christmas glitters.

Next up is Click, Click, Flash, Flash which looks like greeny, teal shade with navy and silver glitter running through it.

No Pictures Please 12ml HR

No Pictures Please is a bold blue, judging by the picture, I would say it has purple base.

leighton denny i'm so hollywood

If you want to go classic this festive season, why not go for a true, metallic red. I’m So Hollywood¬†looks like a gorgeous red with¬†a¬†gold/bronze shimmer, perfect for Christmas.

Where's My Limo 12ml HR

If colour isn’t your thing, there is a gorgeous greige shade in the form of Where’s My Limo?

What do you think of the collection? Will you be picking up any of the shades?

New In From Leighton Denny

leighton denny colour cocktail

Leighton Denny already makes the Colour and Go manicure pens which are fab for travelling and keeping in a handbag for a quick manicure change. The brand has built on the idea with the Colour Cocktail pens, the idea is you paint your nails with the opaque cream or shimmer shade and on the other side of the pen there is a sheer shimmery top coat to transform the look of the polish. I think it’s really fun and¬†easy way to do something a bit on you’re nails because it’s not complicated. Also if the two step manicure isn’t you’re thing, you have two Leighton Denny polishes which can be worn on they’re own. I have a few Leighton Polishes and I honestly say the quality is amazing, they paint really nicely and they don’t chip.

The range is priced at ¬£8 and they’re limited edition.
