Firstly, a little housekeeping – I promised I would announce the winner of my Ultrasun giveaway on the blog and it’s a huge congratulations to Dawn Totton from Newcastle-upon-Tyne! Dawn’s entry was selected at random and we’ll be popping her prize in the post today – just in time for this week’s scorching weather! Thank you to everyone who entered and good luck next time.
Hopefully you have all been enjoying Beauty Month this month – I love trying all the new products that pass through QVC’s doors.
One of my new discoveries this month has been a new nail are brand courtesy of celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann. Deborah’s range has just launched on QVC UK and is one of Hollywood’s best-kept secrets. She was lovely when I met her and so down to earth.
I loved listening to all the Hollywood Oscar winners she has worked with and I loved the fact that Cher actually helped her design the nail polish bottles! She has designed colours in conjunction with Sarah Jessica Parker, Renee Zellweger and Lady Gaga, and actually had to turn Kate Winslett down for our show on QVC! Her nail colours are beautiful and even the lady who does my nails commented on the quality of the polish.
My favourite colour was Mermaid’s Dream which is a stunning effect for summer. Something else that caught my eye was the Gel Lab duo. These are gel formulation top and base coats that will turn any ordinary colour from any brand into a gel-looking polish. I’ve tried it on lots of polishes at home and it really works a treat – definitely worth getting if you want that gel effect on every colour you currently own.
Even though Beauty Month is all-but over there is so much beauty to look forward to as we head off into July. Watch out for the two hour Gatineau special on Monday 6th, with some extraordinary savings. I have always mixed my beauty products and I love trying lots of new things, but I also go through phases on certain brands and I’m definitely in a Gatineau phase right now.
My new favourite is the Melatogenine Futur Plus Mask which I’ve been sleeping in twice a week. I usually use it after my late shifts at QVC and even though I’m up on the school run the next morning, my skin still looks like it’s had a full night’s sleep – it’s brilliant! I’m also using the Aquamemory roll-on for eyes as a top up for during the day, although I use it across the forehead too! Plus I’ve slotted in the Melatogenine Eye Concentrate and the Vitamina hand cream into my routine too. I can’t wait to see what other Gatineau goodies I can add to my armoury on the 6th. It’s a date.
See you then,
