This post went down really well last month so I've decided to make it a series! It's that time of the month again when lots of people like to treat themselves because they've just been paid or just generally feel like a little splurge! A treat does't have to break the bank so I've put together three produts for three budgets so hopefully you will find something you like, either for yourself or for a gift!
Caudalie Thé des vignes Body & Hair Nourishing Oil: I love a good multi-talking product, especially when I am short on space in my luggage so this Caudalie oil is right up my street! It is a dry oil that can be used on both hair and body (trust me, you will want to swish your hair like crazy when you use this because the scent is so beautiful!), it's non-greasy but nourishing and smells amazing. If you aren't familiar with the Thé des vignes scent, it contains notes of white musk, neroli and ginger. Remember white musk from The Body Shop back in the day? Well this is the more sophisticated version and one that you would expect to cost a lot more than the £18 price tag because it has that 'expensive' scent!
Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick: Have you ever seen a more stunning lipstick case? It reminds me of something that would be seen in a 1950s film! There is no doubt that this is expensive at £28 for only 0.9g of product but you can buy refills (in a different shade if you wish) and the case is pretty sturdy so it should last through several refills. The lipstick itself is intensely pigmented and extremely comfortable on the lips. Because of the size of the bullet, it's really easy to achieve precise application so if you aren't a fan of lip liners, I don't think it would be entirely necessary with these lipsticks. Expensive, but worth the splurge!
Tom Ford Honeymoon Eyeshadow Quad: There are plenty of great eyeshadow brands that prove that you don't need to spend a fortune to get pigmented, blendable and long-lasting eyeshadows but if you really feel like having a splurge then look no further than Tom Ford! There are 10 shade selections to choose from and the one I have is Honeymoon - I just can't resist warm tones! As expected from Tom Ford, the packaging is very luxe - the quad itself comes with a velvet pouch and is a sturdy plastic with a gold tip that has Tom Ford written on it. It's pretty slimline so perfect for handbags and on the go touch ups. The shadows themselves are just dreamy - pigmented, finely milled, buttery soft, easy to apply and blend and the four shades work so well together. To me, this quad is the ultimate treat and at £64, it is not something I would be buying very regularly but that's what makes the purchase feel extra special!
Will you be splurging on anything this month? Have any of these caught your eye? I'd love to hear!
