What’s hot in beauty for June – part two


June Beauty MonthI hope you're enjoying June Beauty Month! We have some more great products lined up for you over the next few weeks!

Nails Inc. – The London Collection

This special priced promotion for QVC contains six full size varnishes (that normally retail at £11 each directly from Nails Inc.) plus 4 minis, offering fantastic value and a myriad choice of colour and texture.

The six full size colours are, for me, what make ‘Nails Inc.’ special with their full bodied, high gloss, cream finish. The formula that ‘Nails Inc.’ have made gives an amazing self-levelling, smooth finish that looks extremely chic on the nail.

Nails Inc London CollectionThey range from the famous ‘Porchester Square’, a pale greige, ‘Lower Regent Street’, a hot summer pink to ‘Great Marlborough Street’, an intense, deep cherry plum.

Also included, for that extra fashionista celebration look for a special occasion is ‘Tate’, their most famous London red and finally the ‘Thames’ which is an elegant, cool, full coverage grey which is a modern alternative to nude.

The minis include two metallics, one a fantastic navy blue and the other a delicate, multi-textured silver and golden sand. Then there are the two special effects, firstly with the holographic top coat, which can be applied over any colour in the collection and then a rose-pink glitter which gives a fun finish or can be painted as a French manicure free edge or ring finger manicure for a more up to date fashion look.

All together this kit will be loved by Nails Inc. regulars for its value and diversity but I am very excited for any new customers because it gives a full spectrum of colour and texture at the fraction of the price and showcases what ‘Nails Inc.’ does best.

OPI Bond Girls collectionOPI Bond Girl Mini Collection

OPI continue their amazing partnership with the film world and this time with the iconic Ian Fleming Bond Girls. To celebrate 50 years of James Bond, QVC are launching a limited edition collection of colours with OPI featuring four shades named after the Bond Girls.

Not only amazing colours but they have a unique texture where the lacquer magically settles to a matt undercoat allowing the jewel-like textures of solid diamond-like colour to rise to the surface. This creates a modern, multi-dimensional colour kaleidoscope that glints in the light. It is like nail art but made easy.

In the kit, ‘Jinx’ is an amazing golden, sunburst coral which will look great with a tan. ‘Pussy Galore’ is a delicate, baby pink finished with a coating of pink diamonds that looks very expensive on the nail. ‘Solitaire’ is subtly elegant and celebrates the textures and colours that are refracted by white diamond. ‘Vesper’ is an intense, full bodied purple encrusted with violet stones for the drama queen amongst us.

The Bond Girls are complimented by a full size Base Coat and full sizes of the Tiffany Case, which I’m sure was made for me, an amazing sky blue with silver and blue textures and the perfect summer gold in Honey Ryder which gives full coverage, textured, golden sand finish.

Top Tip: do not apply Top Coat to these special edition liquid sand textures as it will take away the beauty and drama of the multi-textured finish.

These two would complement each other on manicures and pedicures and would be a great addition to your fashion wardrobe especially if you wear a lot of metallics and textures in your accessories.

Stila Lip BalmStila Lip Balm Duo

Also look out for Stila in the first week of July. This fashion forward, celebrity cult make-up range has got some great new Lip Balms launching in July with QVC. These stylish, lipstick looking products are actually more like a tinted lip balm.

The minute you put them on, you can feel the moisturising ingredients designed to hydrate and smooth the lips and to help with the look of volume and definition. You get an immediate hit of peppermint aroma, which also gives a subtle tingle.

Perfect for the summer or for anyone that likes a no-makeup look. They even have a mirror in the lid but don’t be fooled, they are pleasantly pigment dense so you do get colour pay-off and some fashion colour finish unlike many lip balms which fail to deliver on the colour front

Lip Balm OliviaYour colour choices are going to be a duo of nudes, pinks or corals. The coral is definitely for the sun worshiper, the nudes are for the no make-up wearer or to offer the most casual finish and the pinks are the most natural whilst still offering enough colour pay-off if you are older to give some definition to the lip.

A divine lip texture, these will definitely be a winner through the summer months but I think you will equally want to repeat purchase them for the winter as they deliver comfort and fashion.

    I have purchased the no no hair remover but not very happy with I have been using I regularly since April but am still waiting for the smooth skin none of the facial hair has gone and I get lots of little black hair dots on my chin area which have to be tweezed out but takes ages to get out, as for my legs it has hardly touched them and the large thermo tip wills not stay on full strength it drops back to level one all the time, as this is a very expensive purchase I expect a lot more.
