British Invasion


As of late I have become quite obsessed with drugstore & High Street products. For anyone in the US it's beyond difficult to get ahold of so many amazing High Street products but I was lucky to get a shipment of love from a dear friend. These products aren't all from that particular package, as in the US you can order Sleek Cosmetics from their website but these are amazing products I wanted to share.

Soap and Glory is one of my favorite brands for skin care, but when I learned they had cosmetics I instantly had to get my hands on some of them. The Kick Ass Concealer, and Glow All Out are my first two items from their cosmetic line and they sure don't disappoint. The concealer has become my go to under eye concealer, and it lasts a full 12 hour shift. And the highlighter is so gorgeous. I find myself reaching for it quite often and get loads of compliments when I wear it.

Sleek blushers are amazing, and great products. These you can purchase if in the US through the Sleek website, and I highly recommend it. Their Matte Me lip cream is an amazing dupe for the Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick. And I honestly think it has better lasting power, as I had to scrub it off where the Hourglass one faded. 

Collection Lasting Perfection concealer has a bit of a cult following. And for a good reason I believe! The color I have appears too dark in the tube but blends so well into my skin that you would never know it's a smidgen too dark. It also has a great lasting power, as it boasts 16 hour wear. 

And lastly are some random goodies of brands we have plenty of in the US but these products aren't on our shelves. The Loreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution is essentially a cleansing water. It is very similar to Bioderma and the Caudalie versions, but at a better price point for those in the UK. For me after the exchange rate and shipping was about equal pricing. Then there's the Tresemme 24 Hour Body root pumping powder. I have recently got into these types of hair powders and find they're so easy to use. They make my hair appear fuller and give it better volume, so I couldn't resist this one.

If you're lucky enough to live in the UK, please frequent Boots as often as possible for me. I am in awe of their 3 for 2 specials, and find their sales are hands down better than any we get in the US. And if you have any more recommendations for products I would adore to hear them!
