{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…

2014 beauty favourites

Really, truly, honestly. I couldn’t possibly try to write up all the beauty products that were my favourite this year, especially when it comes to skincare. SO I’ll make an effort to film a video (!) on my favourites before the quarter ends.

In the mean time click to “read more” and check out the slide show of the products I’ve loved all year round.

DIOR lipstick nail polish vernis

DIOR lipstick nail polish vernis

 {Dior Rouge Dior collection}

A collection like this warrants excitement on it’s own merit. It is Dior after all. That being said, there was something a little extra special that stood out to me, being from the UK and in love with red and all.

Rouge Dior is the latest from the brand in lip and nail products and if you don’t already know, my goodness to Dior know how to make a mean nail lacquer.

DARLING dior lipstick nail polish

{Rouge Dior Vernis and Lipstick in Darling}

The prettiest of pinks with a slight blue undertone this duo is for the girl in us.

The Rouge Dior lipsticks are creamy in their finish but opaque in their colour. I adore this shade and it looks divine with the new Diorblush in Trianon.

 Spring nails! This pink is perfect.

  NUIT nails greige lipstick dior

{Rouge Dior Vernis in Nuit and Lipstick in Greige}

The perfect marriage of nude and night time. The deep, oxblood nails are complemented with a delicate, rose nude.

 This is one of my favourite nude lipsticks and I rarely say those words. I find it hard to find a nude that doesn’t wash out my overall look and this is one of the few that won’t. Looking for a inexpensive alternative? Maybelline’s Stormy Sahara is a pretty close dupe.

 My bottle is almost done, that’s how much I wore this shade through the winter. Like wine jelly on your fingertips the colour is incredibly rich, glossy and oh-so sexy.

TRAFLAGAR Dior

{Rouge Dior Vernis and Lipstick in Trafalgar}

 Red number one of a British girl’s dream. Reminding me of Trafalgar Square (perhaps that’s what inspired the name), this outrageously bright red is easily the best version of this shade that I’ve ever seen.

 I adore the lipstick interpretation but part of me wishes it was matte to reveal the true orange hue. Above my naturally dark lips the bright red doesn’t pop like it does in the bullet but I still adore it.

This is what I’m talking about! A red that looks like shiny, plastic  lollipops, I just wana lick my fingertips when I wear it.

999 dior

{Rouge Dior Vernis and Lipstick in Rouge 999}

 A richer, truer red, this classic colour is shown in 999 – call the PoPo!

I feel like it wears a tad blue but that fit the name even better if you ask me.

I like to call this one the ‘boss lady‘  shade. I’ll be in my suit and tie…
