Weekly Worship: Guerlain, ESPA and Percy & Reed

The first of my beauty favourites this is the Guerlain Intense Liquid Matte Lipstick. These new liquid lipsticks are ultra creamy like a lipgloss but but still have that gorgeous matte finish. They are also highly pigmented regardless of your chosen colour and even contain hyaluronic acid and tiger grass to keep your lips smooth and plump.

What I love about the new Intense Liquid Mattes (£25 House of Fraser/$29 Sephora) is that they apply effortlessly without dragging on the lips and they're not at all drying. There is nothing worse than going to the bathroom to see your lips are dry and patchy. The Intense Liquid Matte tubes are also super beautiful - this has no bearing on the product itself but it's worth noting.

There are seven shades on offer - Addictive Burgundy, Seductive Red, Attractive Plum, Appealing Orange, Exciting Pink, Charming Beige and Tempting Rose. I'm obsessed with Appealing Orange and Tempting Rose. Serious makeup staples.

Next up is the ESPA Tri-Active Advanced Instant Facial (£60, a face oil that is designed to tackle the primary signs of ageing. Its focus is reducing fine lines, smoothing skin texture and brightening the complexion. The Instant Facial has a milky consistency that is so lightweight it feels like it couldn't possibly contain oils but it does.

This new ESPA serum is packed with coconut, jojoba and avocado oils that work to deeply moisturise, protect and repair the skin. It also features macroalgae cell extract to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and white truffle extract to boost elasticity. I've been using it for a good month and it has really helped treat my dehydration. I can't say much on the reduction of fine lines yet, however it does wonders at removing those caused by dehydration!

My final favourite is the Percy & Reed A Walk in the Rain Hair Shine & Fragrance Mist (£15 I've never been one of those luckily bitches with glossy hair but luckily things started to change when I was introduced to this miracle worker.

The Shine & Fragrance Mist does exactly what it says on the can - it makes your hair smell amazing and gives it a gorgeous glossy finish. The scent is woody and floral but - most importantly - it lasts. When I apply this in the morning, I still smell it on my hair when my head hits the pillow. This mist provides great texture and definition to the hair too. I'm obsessed.
