Quick Reviews #23

Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE Anti-Aging Foundation SPF 30 PA++ I was a huge fan of the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude foundation, so I was really excited when their latest offering landed on our desk. This anti-aging skincare-foundation hybrid is enriched with a powerful antioxidant which, when used daily, repairs the skin’s appearance and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains hydra-pigments to instantly blur imperfections, while helping to seal in moisture for a radiant look. Elizabeth Arden even goes so far to claim that you can sleep with it on to reap added skincare benefits, with studies…

Just Launched // Chanel Collection Libre

chanel-9

Chanel has just released their latest collection, Collection Libre, and it is stunning. Lucia Pica was inspired by cityscapes and urban materials – glass, metal, rubber – when creating this collection, with the aim being to offer up a contrasting palette of textures, colours and lights. Whereas the Le Rouge Collection No.1 (which I adore and use constantly) leaned very warm, I feel like this collection is perfect for those who prefer cooler tones. Collection Libre launched on 14 November 2016. These limited edition items tend to sell like hotcakes, so I’d get myself to a Chanel counter sharpish if you want to…

Sephora

So, I’m off to the States in a few weeks and I’ve obviously been compiling a Sephora shopping list for months. The best part is all the Christmas gift sets that come out at this time of year so there are quite a few of those on the list, along with some cult favourites and recommendations from other bloggers that I’m keen to get my hands on. Here are the products I’m lining up:

Another ColourPop Haul: Photos & Swatches

Colourpop Haul | All Dolled Up

Well, I did warn you. As you’ll know if you watched my ColourPop Unboxing video, I was thrilled with all of my purchases and have been dying to order more. A recent promotion offering free international delivery* was all the incentive I needed so here’s what I bought the second time around:

NEW: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Range

Neutrogena Hydro Boost South Africa | All Dolled Up

I could not be more thrilled that the “drugstore” is finally catching up with more premium brands when it comes to skincare for dehydrated skin. It’s an issue that affects most people to one degree or another, regardless of skin type, and my skin in particular has benefitted enormously over the past couple of years from more targeted treatment of dehydration. Neutrogena’s answer is Hydro Boost, a very affordable range that contains hylauronic acid and other humectants that “create a hydration reservoir and works with skin’s natural moisture transport system to actively replenish, restore and deliver hydration where and when…
