London Loves

No - definitely not the best play on words but it's the best I could come up with at 10:46pm on a Wednesday night. (+ that isn't a very good excuse either because I'm unemployed at the moment + I've always been a bit nocturnal). So I moved to London just over a week ago + I've honestly just been catching up with friends + family getting chores done before I start properly applying for jobs etc. So that's what I've been up to + wifi connecsh has been a bit limited which is why I haven't been posting. If for some reason you want to keep a bit more up-to-date with my life etc you can follow me on instagram where I'm pretty obnoxious but a lot more present. Onto some favorites since I came to London...

I wrote about The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream recently(ish) so if you want to read more about that then click here for that post. I honestly think it is the best BB Cream I have tried because you can build up coverage but it still looks natural + the lightest shade is perf for pale gurlz like me. I don't think I've ever mentioned the following product aka the L'Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Concealer (I'm sorry but I don't think this is out in the UK?!) but if you haven't tried this I am telling you now that you need it. It doesn't crease under the eyes at all (it has a fairly thick but velvety consistency) + it is great for covering up any unwanted red zones without going into any weird face situations that you don't want to highlight. Next up is the Perricone M.D. No Bronzer Bronzer (I can't with the name) which is essentially the ideal bronzer for someone like me whose bronzer can look a bit patchy with my heavy hand. It's a liquid bronzer so you use the little pipette to dispense a tiny amount onto the palm of your hand, rub it in a bit + then just press onto the areas of your face where you want a bit of color. It barely needs any blending + (obviously) you can't see any powdery effects on your skin so it looks really natural. Winner. On my eyes I've been enjoying a bit of MAC Antiqued along my top + bottom lashlines - the warm reddy tones make any eye color pop + because it's dark it adds a nice bit of definition + just the right amount of smokiness for daytime wear. Last but certainly not least is the L'Oréal Paris Miss Manga Mascara which has actually become my favorite mascara over the last few months. What can I say? It gives length, volume, it's not clumpy but not too separatey either. It's everything I want in a mascara.

So that's it from me! I look forward to updating Nouveau Chique a bit more now that I'm more settled!

  1. The tea tree BB cream sounds amazing! I really want to try more from that particular range. I feel like the liquid bronzer would be so natural and lovely!

  2. I can't wait to try the Miss Manga mascara, it's hopefully going to launch here very soon! It looks so stunning and I've heard a lot about it.

  3. Glad you're settling back in lovely lady! xx
