Bobbi Brown Rouge Lip & Cheek £18.00

There are nine shades available in Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouges for Lips and Cheeks. The shade that I am using in the video is ‘Pale Pink 11’, the other colour that I like very much for my own skin tone is ‘Powder Pink 06’. Blend onto cheeks and into lips. A slightly thicker consistency than Stila’s convertible colour that I mentioned last month.

LUSH Toothy Tabs ‘Chou Chou I Love You’ £2.95

Lush’s Rose Jam scent is something that I discovered when I bought Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner from their range. The same scent is used in their Chou Chou I Love You solid toothpaste. There are six or seven flavours/scents available – so if you want to smell more of mint than of rose – try their solid toothpaste ‘Dirty’ instead. Hold one of the tabs between the teeth, crunch a little, and start to brush with your regular toothbrush and water. 30 tablets in each box.

Artdeco Eyeshadow Shade 578 – £6.00

There are fabulous eyeshadow colours in the Artdeco range. For autumn I am loving wearing shade 578 – a ‘smokey mauve’. You can buy these eyeshadows as individuals, or you can build a palette of them as I showed in the video.

Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel £16.50

Five available shades. The gel holds the brow in perfect place.

I think that this eyebrow gel mascara gives the perfect, natural dense look, to a brow. I am wearing it in the video. It can be blended in with a brush – I just use the wand.

Anastasia is to USA brow lovers, what Shavata is to the UK’s. I have been buying her eyebrow pencils for years – every time I have been to the USA – and I am absolutely delighted that her products are now at Too many people ignore their eyebrows, and they make the most astounding difference to a face, if tended to correctly!

I am wearing the shade ‘Espresso’ in the video.

Use the SPF30 booster on its own – mix a few drops in with any moisturiser/foundation – or apply on top of moisturiser. This trusty little bottle comes everywhere with me. High UVA and UVB protection. I have been using the Dermalogica solar range products for years. I was searching the Dermalogica website for this product, and they now have the SPF50 booster – I can’t wait to try it.

Clarins Eau Dynamisante Fragrance £26.10

This is Clarins’ original ‘treatment fragrance’. Can be splashed all over after a shower or bath, or used as a conventional fragrance. I use this at work and I get a lot very nice comments about it! It’s suitable for men and women. One of my very favourite things about this fragrance, that I forgot to mention in the video, is that it is non-photosensitising – and therefore suitable for use in the sun. The scent is incredibly fresh, clean, and uplifting – based on lemon, patchouli, white thyme and rosemary.

MAC ‘Angel’ Lipstick £14.00 and MAC ‘Boldly Bare’ Lip Pencil £11.50

This is my favourite pale lip combination at the moment. I have been using MAC’s Angel lipstick shade at work for a few months now – I alternate it with stronger lipsticks – it is described by MAC as a soft pink. In my day to day life I combine it with the MAC liner ‘Boldly Bare’. I am wearing both in the video. Do ignore the implication that ‘Boldly Bare’ is the dull shade shown as you are buying on the websites. I was surprised to see such vast difference between the colour example given, and the line that I draw on the back of my hand in the video.
