Blogger Mail Currently Testing

Over the past couple of weeks I've been testing out a couple of products that have been very kindly sent disclaimer and thought I'd share my thoughts on them here. 

Firstly is the very snazzy Tangle Angel Brush*  I used to own a tangle teezer a while back but sadly misplaced it so I was very excited to be sent another de-tangling brush to try out. As an avid rose-gold lover, I personally love the fact that this is so bold and that little bit dramatic. I have quite fine thin hair so mine luckily doesn't get caught up and tangled too often but every now and again I'll shove it up in a bun and it goes a little temperamental. I found this best worked with my hair wet rather than dry, mainly because the bristles are quite hard compared to my usual paddle brushes. Personally I prefer more of a softer brush, probably because I do have thinner hair rather than a hard core one so those with thicker hair may really like this brush.

Next is the Cashmere-On Lip Pots from Emile Cordon* which probably have to be the most luxurious and expensive lip balm that I will ever own. They very kindly sent me two of their balms, N0.1 Lisa which is a gorgeous pink champagne scented lip pot along with N0 72 Coco, my personal favourite a white coconut and vanilla scent. Weirdly I thought I would hate the Coco one as I despise coconut, but this is so subtle and more steering towards 'vanilla' that I adore it. These just ooze luxury, they come in the most gorgeous glass packaging with a gold plated lid and even a little scoop so you don't have to put your fingers inside the pot. Apart from just being pretty to look at, I think these are gorgeous lip balms, buttery smooth and leave your lips feeling soft and nourished. 

Lastly is the BareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lip Colour 'JuJu'*. I've only tried a couple of bareminerals products, but never a lip product and I have to say, this has already become one of my most worn nudes this season so far. This was actually part of a Tili Beauty Box, but you can buy them individually from BareMinerals. JuJu is a beautiful dark pink nude with a brown undertone which makes it perfect for Autumn whilst still remaining quite a feminine shade. The formula is similar to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cremes, where it's more of a moussey texture, which I love because it doesn't feel tacky but instead lightweight and comfortable. This I can already tell will feature in my October favourites blog post because I wear it THAT much! 

Let me know in the comments below if you've tried any of the above products and also something that you've been testing out lately!

  2. I love these kind of posts, purely because I'm a nosey bugger haha! That lip shade looks so pretty and I'm so eager to give the tangle teezer a go xx

  3. I have Juju and love it, feels so light on the lips but yet pretty! x

  4. A vanilla and coconut lip balm sounds amazing! They really do look luxurious x

  5. Going to be honest, I loved the look of the lip balm before I even went to read your post but to learn its called 'Lisa' is even BETTER! Do I need a lip balm with my name as the shade, no.. do I want it though ? (Of course I do hahaha) xx

  6. JuJu is such a pretty color! I've been hearing lots of good things about those liquid lipsticks. The colors they have are absolutely amazing I need to try some xx

  11. I'm obsessed with that bareMinerals nude! I haven't found that in Finland yet, but someday I will find it and buy it. I have heard so many good things about those! But that hair brush, it looks really interesting. I don't know if I like it or not. Maybe I should see how it looks live. Color looks absolutely beautiful but the shape is kinda off?
