Best New Beauty Products

It’s been a while since I rounded up some of my favourite beauty buys and thanks to my work at Slapp, I’ve found even more excuse to experiment. I’ve noticed a real difference in products since I started Blush back in 2010. Formulas have advanced and we’ve picked up a few more skincare steps along […]

Introducing … NOTO Botanics Hydra Highlighter

Although there’s a time and a place for a full, beaming, metallic highlighter, I think the future of glow is an altogether more subtle affair. Something which mimics a naturally healthy and hydrated complexion, combining dewy oils with a subtle wash of colour, or iridescent pigment, is a totally cute and modern way to shine. […]

Introducing … Tata Harper Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint

If you have your finger on the natural beauty pulse, you’ll likely have heard of Tata Harper. It’s the name of a brand and also the name of a woman, which is pretty cool. She makes tons of expensive and beautiful skincare from her home farm in Vermont (probably not actually, but let’s focus on […]

August Favourites That You Need in Your Life

So it’s been a while since I last posted, and for that I am truly sorry. Slapp is consuming all of my time, but if you are looking for some Beauty advice, or news on the latest launches, I would suggest heading over to the app. In other news, I have been trying out a lot […]

Introducing… Epara Skincare

We all know we’re supposed to take care of our skin and thanks to a post-teen dabble in the Clinique 3 -step programme, most of us know what skin type we are. I have the pleasure of being Combination: which basically means I’m a little of everything. A bit dry here and a bit oily […]

Introducing – Chantecaille Foundation, Vital Essence & Matte Chic

In her last piece for Blush, Annie introduces us to Chantecaille… Chantecaille is a brand that has always seemed a little out of my league. In spite of what you may think, glamorous, I’m not. I love makeup and skincare and all things luxe, but at heart I think I’m secretly quite low maintenance. Chantecaille, […]

Introducing… Mario Badescu’s Healing & Soothing Mask

The world of problem skin is, believe it or not, a problematic one. It’s almost like playing a game of whack-a-mole with your face. Once you get a breakout under control, something else will pop up. You’ll treat the suppurating, throbbing sores, only to be left with flakey, scaley dry patches. Fun and glam, I […]

Blush Loves…Christmas Gifts

It’s that time of year and Christmas is upon us. Many of he big brands have relinquished gift-sets for advent calendars this year. And whilst I love the idea of getting a new Jo Malone fragrance every day, it’s pretty risky business; much like buying a box of chocolates, I never want the nut and at […]

Staying true to it’s name, Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturising Serum Concentrate instantly rehydrates the skin and smoothes it’s surface, as it transforms from a gel-like liquid into an […]

Sunday Selection – Edition Edelweiss 24 Hour Cream

  Edition Edelweiss is a hit in their native Austria and thankfully they’ve come to the UK. The luxury skincare brand excels with their age-targeted serums and 24 hour cream- which I love. The simple packaging does somewhat belie the power of the cream’s contents, which upon application never fails to make my complexion glow  With […]

Blush’s Top 5 Face Oils

It seems crazy that for any season oil would be a good thing to put on your face. Ten years ago clogged pores and spots would immediately spring to mind, but this is 2014 and we’ve moved on.  These days face oils are the height of luxury – at £40 a pop they most definitely […]
