Internet Inspired Beauty (AKA ‘the internet made me do it!’)

I’ve stepped back from blogging recently and, in doing so, I’ve been looking at blogging, influencers, and the beauty community in a slightly different way. I looked through my ‘stash’ and I thought it might be interesting to do a post on all of the products that I was 100% influenced by after seeing them all over the internet. Working in beauty and surrounding myself with bloggers meant that I was often overwhelmed by new launches, new formulas, new brands… and sometimes I would get swept up in that. So here are the products the internet ‘made’ me get and whether I would actually recommend them.

Internet inspired beauty: the make up and skincare that I was influenced to buy by the internet. Cult make up and skincare and whether I'd repurchase. Overrated beauty or must haves? #talontedlex #beautyproducts

FRIDAY FAVES: Margate, Murder, & Mascara

As we speak I am on holiday, visiting my parents in France. I say ‘holiday’, but when you’re a freelancer it can be very difficult to switch off so I’ve still got my nose in my laptop for most of the day while I’m here. The only difference is that there’s a dog at my feet and lots of free wine… which is pretty much the dream! Anyway, enough rambling – are you ready for some Friday Faves?

IT Cosmetics Foundation Comparison: CC Cream vs Bye Bye Redness

I had heard so much about the IT Cosmetics products, both from rosacea groups and ‘regular’ make up lovers. The former were particularly excited as the founder of the brand has rosacea herself, so all the products aim to be gentle but effective.
