1. I do, at times, find the cost of skincare quite depressing. I know that the R&D costs of scientifically-proven skincare are high, and a luxury experience is nice, but come on, £85 for a 30ml bottle of facial oil? Are you tripping? That’s why I’m excited to try The Ordinary skincare. With stripped back, no-frills packaging, and pure, high volume ingredients, it’s getting mad love online. I’m trying The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2% £8/30ml and hoping it’ll replace Alpha-H Liquid Gold as my occasional resurfacing treatment.
3. I love pointy, I hate platforms, and I love an 80’s slingback, so these ASOS Pipe Down Pointed High Heels £30 are a must. They also come in a sweet pearlescent blush satin but it’s the gold pair that has my heart racing.
4. The bottle for Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon EDP $65 is enough to make me swoon. With its smoked amber glass and exquisite symmetry, it recalls the entire aesthetic of George Falconer in Tom Ford’s A Single Man; now there’s an example of Paradise Noir.
5. I’m looking forward to seeing the world through a sepia tint, as these ASOS Keyhole Round Sunglasses with Brown to Clear Fade Frame £10 are heading my way. They’re from the Mens range, so I’m hoping they’ll be oversized. If not, well, they’re £10.
6. I could compose a sermon extolling the virtues of Jouer’s Longwear Lip-Topper in Tan Lines so I know I won’t be disappointed by their Long-Wear Lip Crème Liquid Lipstick in Papaye £15. Metallic lips are my jam. And as Jouer is Cult Beauty’s Brand of the Month, there’s free shipping on orders containing Jouer products and free gifts while stocks last.
