A quick update: Instead of ‘monthly favourites’ I’m going to shift to ‘current favourites’ to give me a bit more freedom with how often I can do them. Today’s video includes some autumn-appropriate make up, volumising luxury haircare, a brand new nail varnish, an unexpected fragrance and some great TV programme recommendations for you. I hope you enjoy my current favourites #1!

Current Favourites // Talonted Lex. Feat. essie, Ouai, Morphe, Bourjois, Kat Von D, Natural Collection, The Body Shop, By Invitation fragrance, NARS, GOSH and TV recommendations

And I’m happy to tell you that this is – by far – my favourite collection from them.

I was going to call this post ‘Boring Beauty Bits’ because firstly – let’s be honest – these products aren’t the sexiest, but secondly because I really like alliteration. I’m pretty cool like that. But I think calling these items boring would do them a disservice. They are the products I rely on almost every day and come back to over and over again. So let’s dive in to my beauty staples that don’t get enough love…

I have been very vocal in my love for essie polishes. The brushes, the formula, the colours, the longevity – all absolutely wonderful. So the news that essie were bringing out their version of ‘gels’ I was intrigued to try them. Have a nosey at my Essie Gel Couture review below (plus there’s a VERY exciting new launch at the bottom of this post so keep your eyes out for that as well!)
