#StayFlawless by Benefit: Edinburgh Blogger Launch Event

14 June 2013

Hey ladies (and gents, of course! Keepin' it covered here at The Likely Lady)

Sorry for the silence my end for the past week.. I've been getting stuck in to my new-found role in beauty & spa marketing.. hence the fact I wasn't up for coming home and chatting about beauty on the internet some more!

So.. a week ago I went to the Blogger launch event in Edinburgh for Benefit's new Stay Flawless 15 Hour Primer (which is ouuuut.... NOW!). It was a fantastic evening of beauty goss, eating, drinking, giggles and the general camaraderie that you start to expect at Blogger get-togethers! And, of course, the products speak for themselves when it comes to Benefit...

A Note: Life As It Is Now

Hey everyone,

I thought I'd write a quick life update post as life is getting a bit cray cray (but mostly all good now!)..

First off, I'm starting an internship in Digital Marketing tomorrow within the beauty industry. It's my absolute dream, and I'll be dealing with the social media/blog/communications side of marketing, alongside another marketing intern who'll cover market research. I'm extremely excited! Fingers crossed this is the start of my career beginning..

Hey, you lovely lot!

It's a gorgeous day out in Edinburgh. Hope it's lovely weather wherever you are too. Thought I'd get my flatmate to take a couple of photos of my new go-to summery outfit.. sneaked to Costa beforehand and loaded up on iced vanilla latte after wanting it for days! Caffeine buzz..

Essie Matte About You Top Coat: The Review

3 June 2013

Essie: a nail care brand which has rocketed in popularity in the last year, most prominently during their launch of a diffusion line in Boots stores up and down the country. They've become one of the most lusted-after luxury nail care names in the business.

Back at Christmas, my lovely friend Maija bought me their Matte About You mattifying top coat, which I had yet to try out until now! It's a lovely little magical bottle, and I'm in love with the difference it makes to my existing nail polishes; giving them a shiny new 2013 upgrade..

Super Facialist Purifying Cleansing Wash: The Review

2 June 2013

Super Facialist Salicylic Acid Purifying Cleansing Wash Review
Hey everyone!

Here's one review I really should have moved to the top of the to-write pile! This is the Super Facialist by Una Brennan Tea Flower Deep Clean Purifying Cleansing Wash (haha!). For a product with a ridiculously long tongue-tying title, this product packs a helluva punch!

I originally spotted the Una Brennan range reviewed by Alix about 6 months ago, and ever since then I've been hooked. So much so that my skin gets a bit jittery when I place a dollop of any other cleanser on my face..
