'Thursday Tittle Tattle', is a Hope, Freedom, Love blog series that has quickly become home to some of my popular posts. The series is dedicated to breaking news of the beauty world. From time-to-time, Thursday’s blog post will be dedicated to news featuring; beauty and lifestyle news, events, discounts, and even a bit of fashion news thrown in too! This is my favourite time of year in the beauty world, as the focus has moved to summer. This week we’re talking about high end makeup palettes and some new makeup brushes!
Air Blush from Marc Jacobs Beauty
Air Blush is the newest blush innovation from the genius team at Marc Jacobs Beauty. The blusher has been designed to create a naturally luminous, flush of colour which lasts up to 24 hours. These blushers are really one of a kind, creating an incredible glow that "can only be found on a dancefloor". The new formula uses japanese air powder pigments infused with air, this combination offers seamless, natural-looking colour. They are finished with a lovely innovative pattern, which was actually inspired by marc’s spring 2013 striking striped gown. The lighter shade in each palette highlights the skin, whilst the deep shade contours. You can use the shades separately or you can blend the two together. These blushers are available in five shades and they retail for £28 each here.
NARS 'Survival Kits' & Dual Intensity Blush Palette
As soon as I saw the Survival Kits from NARS, I fell in love with the idea. The kits offer you everything you need for makeup survival. Each kit includes a palette filled with a combination of blusher and eyeshadow, plus a lip gloss and the Black Moon Audacious Mascara. If that's not pulling at your heartstrings, there is the #NARSissist Dual-Intensity Blush Palette, which is utterly swoon worthy. This offers you everything you need in an all-in-one cheek palette. There's a highlighter, blushers and a contouring shade. Featuring the shades; Soft Tulle, Damask with Gold Sheen, Peony and Titian. This palette retails for £46 here.
New Morphe Brushes Kit
A whole new set of Morphe products have dropped at Cult Beauty this week, but my favourite has to be the 7 Piece Rose Gold Brush Set. As the name suggests, the brushes are finished in rose gold and the set includes a collection of face and eye brushes. There's everything you need from buffing in foundation, applying blush and contour, plus a lovely eyeshadow look. The brushes all came in a handy travel case, which makes it perfect to take on your travels. The set includes; Tapered Powder Brush, Angle Blush Brush, Flat Foundation Brush, Oval Fluff Brush, Chisel Angle Brush, Pointed Crease Brush and Small Shadow Brush. The set is only £15 and you can buy it here.

The first edition is the Rose Edition and a new edition of the Beauty Expert Collection will launch each season. This summer it's all about feeling beautiful inside and out with the soft and subtle tones of rose!
