John Lewis have released their fabulous Autumn Fashion magazine online! The magazine covers a fantastic variety of fashion and beauty items and I’ve been asked to pick my top 5!
Now John Lewis is a brand that I think of as being dependable and high quality and of course fair – they always match prices so you get the best deal. But to be honest I don’t usually think of them as inspiring but looking at their beauty feature is making me want to spend! Their take on the AW14 palette is a modern refresh of classic shades – dusty blue eyeshadow, muted red lips, ballerina nails and gleaming skin.
So what about my top 5? In reverse order:
This is a brand that is fast becoming one of my favourites. I”ve recently purchased the Sheer Glow foundation. This NARS duo eyeshadow in South Pacific is definitely on my wish list. It costs £25.00 here.
Lancome Grandiose Mascara in black. With my stubby straight lashes I’m always looking for a magic solution. This product promises “Fanned-out lashes, divine curves. Lancôme reinvents its mascara and unveils a new application technique that effortlessly creates perfectly open, full and even lashes.” It’s got rose cell extract too so I’m sold! It cosrs £24.50 here
For my runner up I’ve chosen a slightly girly pink nail polish from the John Lewis Colour range. I know it’s autumn but I just can’t bear to leave summer shades behind. It’s John Lewis COLOUR Nail Polish, 10ml, English Rose. This nail polish is made in the UK and with a 2-in-1 formula it offers extended wear, and a glossy and chip resistant finish which is water and detergent resistant. Its also Toluene, Formaldehyde and DBP free. It ticks all the boxes. It costs just £7.50 here.
If you’ve been following me for a while you won’t be surprised that my top pick is from Estee Lauder. It’s the Estée Lauder Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup SPF 25. This innovative product provides makeup with serum technology. They claim it brightens and perfect and reduces the look of lines.What’s not to like? It’s a little more expensive than I’m used to but with foundation and serum in one and a SPF25 it may just be worth it. It costs £37.00 here.
So what do you think? Would you have picked a different top 5? Take a look here and let me know what you would choose.
