My name is Magaidh, and this is my first post on Joyfully You! I am the summer collaborator that Hadassah introduced here. 🙂 Today I’m going to follow the example of a couple of the other Joyfully You girls, and share the products I’m loving so far this summer. I’ll also share a few that I want to try. You ready? Here we go…
1. Besame Cosmetics Carmine Lipstick
Okay– lemme just say, this is seriously my most favourite makeup company in the world! They recreate vintage makeup, and it’s seriously so cool! Each lipstick shade has a date on it– this particular one is an actual shade from 1931. I also have their 1941 shade, Victory Red, and its beautiful too. What I love about Besame, other than the historical aspect, is that everything they make, they make really well. The quality is better than any other makeup brand I’ve ever tried, and they make it to last. Their mascara (which is also awesome) can last up to two years. The Victory Red lipstick I have is almost gone, but I’ve probably had it for six months and I wear it frequently. So yeah. Go check out this awesome company. 😀
2. The Victoria Magazine
My grandmother gave me one of these beautiful magazines several months ago, and I just love it! It’s like Pinterest on paper, haha! Whenever I need those warm fuzzy feelings and pictures of tea and Scotland– I pull out my Victoria magazine. It’s one of the two only magazines that I have that I won’t tear anything out of for envelope/stationery making, haha! (The other one is a limited edition about J.R.R. Tolkien 😉 )
3. Florence by Mills Dreamy Dew Moisterizer
This moisterizer is made by a brand spankin’ new company started by a 16 year old celebrity (Millie Bobby Brown), and it’s one of the few skincare products that I feel like has instant results. And I’m especially picky about moisterizers. So this is a must-have for sure.
5. Side Combs
Okay. So not many people wear this anymore. Except, like, old ladies. Lol! But I’ve recently discovered that they’re a real life saver! (or hair saver, rather 😉 ) You can just stick ’em in, and your hair instantly looks “like you tried” and has a decided vintage flair. This is how your wear them:
Okay, now for the things I want to try this summer.
1. Anything from the Besame ‘Love, Lucy’ Collection
So my favourite makeup company (that I mentioned earlier in this post) just launched a new collection based on Lucille Ball, and I’m just thrilled! They copied all of the makeup that she used to wear– with the help of her daughter! (I didn’t even know she had a daughter…) Anyway, I’m dying to try something from the collection! Probably either the powder compact or the lipstick.
2. An Outfit from the Miss Patina London clothing company
Thank you Pinterest. Thank you. I found this AWESOME clothing company just scrolling through my Pinterest feed, and now I’m dying to replace my wardrobe with literally everything they sell!! The only thing I don’t like about them is that a lot of their dresses are too short. But style wise– it’s me to a ‘t’.
That’s all for now! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my first post! Please let me know what you think in the comments below!
