Here at bb we are pretty lucky to have a HUGE beauty cupboard (otherwise known as the bellabox online shop) right at our disposal when we need a beauty fix.
Rather than hot foot it to our nearest beauty counters, we simply pop down and pick out what we want. While it certainly makes for shopping ease, it means we buy A LOT too!
So, each month, three of our bb staffers will give you the low-down on their 3 favourite beauty buys from the bb online store. This month, Ali, Vanessa and I share our top buys...
Vanessa: "I certainly love a good lip, but am incredibly picky in deciding who takes the premier spot on my pout and in our bb store. When I discovered Shanghai Suzy and met with creator Joanna, I knew I had just found my new favourite beauty child. I have purchased all 3 colours from the bb store and am keeping them on high rotation in my handbag. They are the perfect pick me up and can turn a tired face into one that pops and says “hello world”. Best yet, the lipsticks smell like Grape Hubba Bubba, so you will have everyone wanting to pucker up. Oh and did I mention they stay on!"
Ali: "I know Lauren chose this last month, but I just love it so much, I have to share it myself! Coconut Revolution has been a saving grace for my legs which tend to get dry, particularly in the winter months. Their Body Cream leaves my legs feeling so smooth! I also have really been loving Spinnacles, a great way to whip you hair up into a bun with no breakage of elastic lines. They are really strange looking, but seriously work! Check them out here. Been loving Out the Door Top Coat as well, as I don't have the patience to wait for my nails to dry!"
Lauren: "This month, I've really tried to take control of my post-summer skin. Feeling a little dull and drained since summer, my complexion really needed a boost. When I learned about the BeautyShot Cosmetics 7 day plan, I wanted in. With wedding season here, I needed to prep fast for all Saturday's between now and May - crazy, right!? The Emergency Serum was my 7-day plan of choice with Rosehip Oil, Organic Pomegranate Extract, Organic Aloe Vera and Pure Hyaluronan. My skin didn't feel 'tighter' per se, but definitely felt smoother and more hydrated - the perfect skin to start with before acing any makeup base. Plus, the slight floral scent was a treat at the end of the day before bed. Oh, and they are only $30 for the week! Skip the lattes and go for great skin instead, I say.
