I just can’t get enough of…

When I find a new product to love, like seriously adore, it means they’ve ticked a box or two in the ‘pretty perfect department’. Don’t get me wrong, many things that find their way through these doors are loved and adored by myself and many of the bh team – there’s no denying that.

 

But when a new product finds itself some prime real estate on my desk (which isn’t the erm… most organised of desks), I know it must be because this newbie’s got the X-factor, something that I can’t get enough of – and don’t you want to know what kind of products get those kind of serious snaps?

 

Product #1: YSL Rouge Pur Couture VERNIS A LÉVRES Glossy Stain in No. 17 Encore Rose, $50, 1300 651 991 – this too-cute pink stain is unlike regular lipstains. Instead of being matte and looking kissed-off, it’s fabulously glossy, complete with an easy-to-apply paddle brush applicator. It is a pigmented true hue and really stays put!

 

Product #2: Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil, $49, 02 9663 4277– my mum has been using a Clarins Treatment Oil for years. I’ve pretty much just been waiting until I was old enough. Now, with new packaging, the ability to treat dehydrated skin and uneven skin tone, and promote skin vitality and radiance – there’s never been a better time.

 

Product #3: VS Sassoon Ceramic Instant Heat Tong– 38mm – you know when you see celebrities rocking seriously bouncy waves that aren’t as tight as ringlets, but not big enough to fall out? Well, I’ve been trying to achieve those for oh, I don’t know – five years now! Luckily, I discovered this little beauty and well, I guess you could say I’m giving Kimmy K a run for her money in the curl stakes now!

I just bought Ultraorganics Clear Henna Wax Treatment for only $5.99 from Priceline the other day and have used it about 3 days now and find my hair is responding well to it. It feels more silky and soft.

I love Lancome Visionnaire, Elizabeth Arden Prevage, and I'm with you Olivia - Clarins Blue Orchid Facial Treatment Oil is a good one too.

Olivia you look so cute! :)

My 3 favourite new beauty finds: (1) Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair (2) ORLY Nail Polish in Opal Hope and (3) Burts Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. OK that last one isn't a new one for me but I adore it and it makes a HUGE difference in the condition of my cuticles.

My current three new favourite finds are the Revlon lip butters, Smashbox BB cream (although I think it might be causing a break out, need to lay off for a bit and then retrial) and I love that YSL stain too!

I really love reading about other beauties' top finds. I know the great products are out there - we just have to discover them!! So glad that some already have been found.

I'm seriously interested in that VS Sassoon Ceramic Heat Tong now!

My three favourite new beauty finds are the new L'Oreal Revitalift 10 day moisturiser (talk about great value for money for firming my skin!), my Aspect Purastat Cleanser (can't even breathe anymore without this!!) and my new Vani-T Body Custard (courtesy of the Beautorium!) which is so gorgeously packaged in hot pink, makes me moisturised and tanned all over and has my first initial on the front in a big holographic 'V'! What more could I ask for! I love this stuff!

I have been craving those curls too! Looks like i'm going to have to do some spending. My current curler is too tight and so too is my straightners curls!

I have been waiting to try the YSL product as I have read great reviews about it on overseas bloggers' sites. I love the new Natio body butter that I received via Beautorium and Youngblood's mineral powder foundation.

I have four recently discovered To-Die-For beauty finds: Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask, Maybelline New York Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner (both from Beautorium, thankyou VERY much!), Australis Eyeshadow Primer, and Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Illuminator in Angel Flame.

I love Estee Lauder ANR and Idealist serums...
I used to use Clarins decades ago and loved it, but somehow stopped, but I like the sound of the oils so may just have to check them out. Also love the sound of that YSL lippie, sounds so divine.

My three current favourite beauty products are all with compliments from BeautyHeaven.
1/ Maybelline NY Super Stay 24hr Lip Color in Constantly Cabernet
2/ L'Oreal Revitalift Total Repair 10
3/ Youngblood Lunar Dust in Twilight. My daughter and I have had loads of fun recreating gorgeous skin with the Lunar Dust. Skin that is just like Edwards from the movie Twilight.

BH's Jackie here. I just had to jump in. You know how Liv says she doesn't have the most organised of desks? Let's just say that's a little understated. She has SO MANY products lying around! They are perched on desks, balanced on shelves and you name it, she has it! Liv's 'corner' is worse than my ten year old's bedroom. Anyone want to come and clean up?!!
