Acuregen offers tailor-made vegan lipsticks!

i2style

As part of a London Fashion Week Press Day, I was fortunate enough to meet the incredible ladies from Puriskin, AcuREGEN. With backgrounds in alternative therapy, acupuncture and the Medical professions, these are women who understand the importance of a natural product. Having sensitive skin myself, with family members who suffer from severe eczema, beauty products such as these bring music to our ears. Especially now we’re coming into the harsh, colder weather, and the need for extra moisture is at it’s highest!

I was lucky enough to have a custom made lipstick created for me, according to my needs and general tastes. With any colour being possible, I was excited to get started and to see first hand how they can make a lipstick so fast without the need for harsh chemicals. Botanically formulated and enriched with natural Grapeseed and organic jojoba oil, these are ingredients which reflect the human oils that the body naturally produces, (meaning its a much lower risk product in terms of skin reactions).

The most exciting part for me was not only seeing my chosen colour form (I asked for a frosted lilac colour perfect for the winter), but the opportunity to add in further customisable elements, such as scents and flavours. Again, all 100% natural, I asked fora moisterising Vanilla, (though it was tempting when the offer of citrus flavours were put in front of me). They also do a plant-based lip treat formula, very similar to a lip balm, which I think i’ll be purchasing very soon.

Do see the images and Youtube video, showing some of the processes and keep an eye out for the next post, where I’ll be sharing my latest winter frost shoot, where I wear my brand new lipstick in conjunction with a fab faux fur jacket. Have you heard of acuRgenen? Let me know in the comments below what colour lipstick you would go for this winter, and do check these ladies out, they do not disappoint.

H&M set to Launch AW15 Beauty Range

It’s no secret that I’m a lover of the high-street and the vast array of fashion and beauty products available, season upon season. When I found out H&M were set to launch their brand new AW15 beauty range, I must say, I was immediately impressed. From the stunning product photography, to the simplistically chic packaging, I’m intrigued to find out more about the product quality themselves!

i2style beauty

 Inspired by seasonal trends and colours, the launch includes a full range of make-up, haircare, body care and beauty styling essentials. The launch comes at a time when it is easier than ever before to create a personal style statement with beauty products, whether the desired look is natural, classic or more dramatic. There will be new, dedicated beauty areas in stores for customers to experiment with the latest make-up trends and develop a personal and unique look.

We are very excited to launch H&M Beauty. It’s an opportunity to be inventive, creative and to have fun with colour that inspires us,” says Sara Wallander, Concept Designer, H&M Beauty.

There will be over 700 beautifully packaged make-up products in the collection, with seasonal drops of new and limited edition colour palettes throughout the year.  The new assortment, which will replace existing beauty products at H&M, will also include two subsidiary collections: a premium beauty line and a conscious range of Ecocert-approved sustainable products.

With Topshop usually being my no.1 go to for high-street make-up, could H&M shoot to the top of my future wish lists? Either way, I’m excited to find out! What beauty products do you go for from the high-street and are you looking forward to the new aw15 collections? Let me know in the comments below!

Be summer ready with the Netatmo June

i2style netatmo june

The summer season is almost upon us and many plans are being made, that admittedly, revolve around the sun! Whether it’s a holiday you’ve got booked, or plans to attend a festival, it’s now that we really need to think twice about the potential damage being done to our skin. With the health and wellness industry on the rise, and the wearable technology world set to boom, it’s products like the Netatmo June, that are truly going to make an impact!

i2style wearable technology

As a health conscious nation, we are aware of the implications the sun’s rays can cause to not only our insides, but on the outside too. It’s no lie that us beauty lovers have a strict skincare routine, to prevent those lurky lines and dry skin, and part of that routine includes putting on a number of anti-wrinkle creams and SPF included moisturisers, but probably don’t take as much time to put on that all important high factor sun cream…unless we’re beginning to feel the burn.

i2style wearable technology

Sending notifications to your smart phone, the June is an incredibly exciting new wearable device. With an opulent outer aesthetic and a killer inner intelligence system, using UVA and UVB sensors, the June is able to measure the amount of sun exposure to your skin, making it a pretty sassy way to monitor when you should be topping up on your sun protection and staying in the shade!

To my delight, the June is now available to buy in the beauty haven we call Space NK. Priced at £118, this nifty wearable piece is available in three classic colour ways, including gold, platinum and gunmetal. Using the free downloadable app, June is able to tell you when to re-apply SPF and at what level. A pretty valuable purchase if you think about the long term health benefits. This sort of device is something I know i’d check as much as my emails, especially when spending more and more time outdoors this summer.

Vogue’s Sarah Brown: If you were stuck on a desert island forever and allowed one product, what would that product be?

“On a desert island: Sunscreen. And every other week a new delivery would be airdropped, probably by drone”.

I’d love to know your thoughts on the beauty industry meeting with wearable tech and if this type of product is at the top of your summer wish list!

Subtle ombre sunset lip

i2style

i2style

Recently, I’ve been reminiscing about the Illamasqua Ombre pink lip, I created around this time last year! Consequently, it was only a matter of time before I tested out a new one! Seeing as we’re currently in a slight transitional, seasonal period, it can be a little tricky knowing what to wear, let alone what lip colour to rock! So, as a salute to Summer…as, let’s face it, Mr Sunshine has definitely not got his hat on anymore, I decided to create a subtle sunset ombre creation.

Using x4 of my favourite lipsticks, as well as a lip liner and a dap of eyeshadow shimmer, this look can be created in under 5 minutes, with ease! Making sure your lips are marvellously moisturised, simply line them with your nearest, darkest colour and work the lipsticks in from there! I wanted to create an almost metallic/light reflecting effect, upon the lightest part of the lip, so for this I used my perviously stated gold eyeshadow cream formula eyeshadow, (this one was from illamasqua) – proving great versatility, within a product, most would only imagine being good for one purpose!

I love this subtle look. I can imagine wearing it on some of the last Summer Evenings, we’ll hopefully encounter. I also like how it matches my red sparkly dress, (of course I planned that one) and new ombre hair! If you’ve created similar looks this Summer, or are experimenting with lip colours for fall already, let me know in the comments below. I’d love to know!

Sam Faiers ‘La Bella’ Launch!

Holly i2style and Sam Faiers

Holly i2style and Sam Faiers

TOWIE star, Samantha Faiers‘ recent debut of ‘La Bella’, is already proving to be a huge hit. With it becoming number 1 celebrity fragrance launch of 2014, it has topped the likes of One Direction and Britney, in just 3 weeks! (Wowza!). One of the exceptionally exciting aspects to interning at Grabble, mean’t that attending events, press days and being in the know, in regards to the latest Fashion and Beauty news, were key to networking opportunities and exciting Blog content for them. As a result, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend some, with the Sam Faiers ‘La Bella’ launch, being one of my first!

I adore an ever growing fragrance collection, and I also love the ever so humble lady behind my new favourite! Samantha Faiers has been known for her elegant and eye-catching style, which is another reason why I’m a huge fan, but I’m also now very aware of her professional and sweet natured approach, to whatever she seems to puts her hand too! Whilst attending the ‘La Bella’ launch, I was able to speak with not only Sam’s PR team about the work that’s gone into the fragrance, but Sam herself! It’s reassuring to me and I’m sure many others, knowing that Sam was fully involved in every process of ‘La Bella’, and wasn’t just another Celeb to put her name on a product.

The fragrance itself is genuinely delicious! I was fortunate enough to be given a bottle as part of a thank you goodie bag, and I have been wearing it every day! The scent evokes a fresh balance of sweet and musky tones, with a very feminine approach to the overall composition and packaging. The bottle oozes glamour, and every element, from the font – to the pop of the lid, is elegantly done! To me, it’s also a fragrance that’s very versatile according to occasion, and could suit all ages, as I took ‘La Bella’ home to show my younger sister and mother, and they both loved it!

Have you tried ‘La Bella’ yet? If so, do let me know you’re thoughts! It’s available to purchase from The Fragrance Shop online and in stores. Congrats Sam and what a beautiful launch! See below for more images and links.
