Selfridges beauty shop: Chanel, Charlotte Tilbury and Jo Malone

{Beauty  buys}

Since I’ve been back in the UK I’ve spent an obscene amount of ££ on beauty products. I know, I know. What’s new? Being back home means easy access to wonderfully British brands – two of which are featured in today’s post.

Read on to see my recent spurge…

{Spring hues}

There are like a hundred-and-one things that are on my beauty shopping list right now but I’m really doing my best to keep the beauty spending to a minimum until I hit up Sephora on my trip to San Fran next month. Nevertheless, I was in need of a new nude lippie (something with a little moisture to it). Plus, I figured It wouldn’t hurt to pick up something from a spring collection…

This limited-edition fuchsia was a shade (in one of my fave formulas) that I had to have. I feel like I owe it to my beauty collection to pick up a matte Chanel lipstick from every limited collection. Overkill? Bah, never.

The formula of this lipstick boasts a hydrating, matte formula that’s rich in pigment. Check out he punch it packs below.

P.S. I feel like this purpley hue is the perfect transition shade from winter to spring. If you’re stuck deciding between your wine lippie or your coral gloss, this’ll keep you going until the sun really comes out.

The new nude – that’s what this is to me. I’m madly in love with the Maybelline Matte in Daringly Nude but this soft, rose shade is moisturizing with a luminous finish to it. Great for when your lips are a little parched.

I know it sways a little pink to be a nude but when you’re tanned like me that’s what you need. Otherwise you may find that yellow nudes will wash you out a little too much.

Man oh man is this blush to die for. @Glambunctious tempted me with it when I spotted it on her IG last year and I’ve finally got my hands on it. Now I want every shade. For £30 you do get a healthy 8g of product (compared with Nars at 4.5g for £23 it’s still amazing value.

The finely pressed pigment makes this powder glide over your skin with easy making it incredibly easy to apply and blend. I used the outer shade on the cheek bone up to my hair line and the middle colour on the apples of my cheeks. The result? light-reflecting pops of gorgeous colour for a healthy finish.


{Jo Malone – Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne}

My final purchase sends me to memories I’m yet to form. Crisp, white bedsheets in a white cabin by the English sea. This fragrance just oozes clean, soft bedding thats been lightly slept in love. Can Jamie Dornan just come come and personify this for me? K, thanks!
