Topshop Glow Cream Highlighter.

I've never been a huge fan of cream based beauty products but a few weeks back I tested the Topshop Glow Highlighter and I knew I needed to have it. I popped a bit of this on my cheek bones on a whim whilst shopping and kept catching glimpses of it during the day. I then swiftly dragged my friend back to Toppers and took this little baby home.

This is such a gorgeous product with just the right amount of highlight-ness. I love that you only need a tiny amount to blend it. It's such a subtle colour and adds the perfect amount of light to your skin. I've found this is great for applying under my eyebrows and in the corner of my eyes for added brightness too. 

If you're looking for a cheaper, long-lasting highlighter and fancy a little change from the regular powder forms, I'd certainly recommend this one.

OOTD: Kids Cat Shirt.

Shirt - H&M
Jeans - Warehouse*

Most the time being a tiny 5"2 drives me mad, but when it comes to buying clothes my size is on my side. H&M have some fab clothes in at the moment, but I spotted some even cuter clothes in the kids section. The children's range actually goes up to age 14, which I would argue size up to a 8-10 adult size. I spotted this cat shirt and knew I had to have it and when I saw the £5.99 price tag I ran to the till. I picked up this shirt and a floral shirt, both from the kids section for £5.99 each. Some of the clothes were a little to childish, but the majority were a smaller, cuter version of the adult range. 

So maybe being petite does have some perks - no VAT on clothes!

New Releases: Kiehl's.

Last week I was very kindly invited to Selfridges to see Kiehl's latest skincare release, with the lovely Emma. I'm a big fan of Kiehl's and their launch last year was fab, so I knew we were in for a treat. It was a really intimate event which was fab as we got to ask as many questions as we wanted and really get to know the staff as well as the products.

Kiehl's latest release comes in the form of the Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate*. As the name suggests this is a serum, but this a serum with a difference. This can be used along side other serums and under moisturiser providing re-hydration to any skin type. The serum is unique in that is changes from a gel-like substance to a watery liquid once it's massaged in. This means it has a really refreshing feeling on the skin and the watery molecules work their way down into the skin. The serum actually has the highest concentrate of Glycerin that is available without prescription. Glycerin actually attracts moisture into the skin and therefore helps your products work even harder.

I've been using this together with the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Oil and within the space of a week, I've already noticed my skin looks more refreshed and plump. During the event we had our hydration levels in the skin actually tested, mine were a pathetic 33% when in fact they should be around 50%. Hopefully with using this serum my levels will increase - I can't wait to pop in again and get my hydration levels checked.

We were all kindly given samples to fit our skin type too. I've been giving a few of the samples a go and I'm completely obsessed with the Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque which I need to get my hands on ASAP.

You can find the Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate at Selfridges here.
