Discovering Escentual

Discovering Escentual

Online beauty shopping can be an overwhelming place. With so many sites, bargains and offers floating around the interwebz, it can be hard to know where to go, who to trust and what will actually give you the best offer. One of my trusted online retailers is Escentual. Operating since 2000 you can find a bevvy of top brands accompanied alongside great offers that make it even easier to get your hands on the latest makeup item. Delivery is worldwide and with the expertly curated brands available at your fingertips, it’s impossible not to go on a shopping spree as soon as you land on the site.

When it came to adding items to my basket I knew exactly what was top of the list. An item I’ve had my eyes on for a good year now and one that I was waiting for the sunshine to return before picking up. Finally the Dior Glow Maximiser Light Boosting Primer* is in my mitts and it really is as good as everyones been saying. A pearlescent pinky toned cream that boosts illuminating particles that not only awaken the complexion, they also impart the most flattering glow. Lightweight on the skin, paired with a foundation or lighter BB base, your skin shines through as the main attraction.

Not satisfied with a single item who ever is?! I sneaked in the Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector* to see what all the fuss was about. Picking up shade 01-Rose, my lips are in love. Bursting full of moisture these balmy lip products look effortless when applied. Packing a subtle hint of colour I have already worn the bullet down a considerable amount as I’m hooked on applying it. A low key look with a bucket full of hydration – what more could you need?!

What to see these beauties in action? Head back on Thursday to see them in my next Spring look!

  • I live the idea behind the stick form of the lip perfectors as I have the original formula which I love. Xo

  • The Clarins Lip Perfectors have been high up on my wishlist for ages – May need to head over to Escentual x

  • I love both these products, I absolutely swear by the Dior Glow Maximiser – it has so many uses: primer, mixed in with foundation, highlighter on top of foundation…the list is endless xx
