The White Company X DECIEM
If you’ve followed Hope, Freedom, Love for a while you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of DECIEM. Their innovative, exciting products always go down well with the beauty community. So when I heard that DECIEM had collaborated with The White Company, I knew I needed to get the full low down. The founder of The White Company is actually an ex-beauty journalist, so she’s always had a secret passion for hunting down good skincare. She says that she’s “absolutely thrilled with the products”, citing that it took “over a year of extensive trialling and tweaking to perfect the formulation”. The advanced-skincare comprises of six carefully curated products to help transform the look of your complexion, whatever your age. The products include; Super Balm (£25), Super Serum (£40), Advanced Hydration (£30), Eye Revive (£20), Night Oil (£30) and the Hand Elixir (£20). They are even selling Facial Cloths in a handy triple pack for £15.
Famous Last Words from Lipstick Queen
If you’re sick of looking for the perfect matte lip, Lipstick Queen might just have the product for you. ‘Famous Last Words’ from Lipstick Queen is their answer for a stay-put, statement matte lip. They nickname the product their ‘Elastic Matte’, as the formula contains the special ingredient Sofistan 649, which enables the pigments to breathe and bend rather than crack on the lips. The six new shades offer a long-lasting liquid lip, with rich pigments, which still offer a lightweight feel after hours of wear. The new shades will retail for £22, follow the excitement by using #LQFamousLastWords.
New brow pencils and mascara from Sainsbury’s Boutique
If you’ve missed the beauty world going mad for the Sainsbury’s Boutique makeup line, it’s time to catch up! This genius line of affordable makeup is doing the rounds and it’s getting very good reviews! The latest products from the line include two eye enhancing staples; Mascara and Eyebrow Pencils. The Boutique Mascara is available in classic black and is designed to emphasise your lashes. If you’re looking to banish bad brows, you need the Boutique Brow Pencil which comes in two shades - Dark and Light Brown – which means you can select the perfect shade to match your natural colouring.
The makeup brand which is changing everything – BEAUTY PIE
I feel a bit ‘behind the times’ talking about BEAUTY PIE, but I realised I hadn’t spoken about it yet in one of my round ups. In case you missed it, the new brand (from the same lady who brought us Soap & Glory) aims to bring us premium quality makeup at a fraction of the normal retail price. Their slogan says it all - “No mumbo-jumbo. No middlemen.
No markups.” and beauty fans are going mad for their products. At BEAUTY PIE you sign up for just £10 a month and then you can select your choice of makeup, up to the retail cost of £100.
