Beauty Products On Trial #3 (Florida Edition)

Hi, remember me? Well, I thought I would pop up a quick (maybe not that quick) post just to show you a few products that have been gracing my face over the last week. I'm sure you know already by my constant Instagrams, but I'm currently in Florida and I have just under one week left (sad face) I could seriously get used to this weather! In true Claire style I've been doing quite a bit of shopping that I will definitely show you when I get home, but back to business.

Nars Tinted Moisturiser
Light bases in warm weather are a must, it's been in the 30's most days and I hate feeling caked in make up. Unfortunately I've had probably the worst break out in months, damn spots! I'm putting it down to the change in water and environment.

Jouer Matte Moisture Tint (Mini)
A sample of this tint came in a recent Cult Beauty order and I'd been wanting to try it out for quite a while so this trip was the perfect opportunity, even though it is a good 2 shades too dark for me, I'm making it work.

Nars Radiance Creamy Concealer
This concealer has been a godsend, I've been using it to cover my hideous, Mount Vesuvius sized zits and under eyes, if I could only use one product everyday, this baby would be it!

Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil
A year ago I never thought I would become such a brow fan but I seriously look forward to filling in my eyebrows every morning, they really make such a difference to your face.

Stila Convertible Colour in Gerbera
I only brought 2 blushes with me,  I know shock horror,  but this has been my favourite,  it's just so easy,  has amazing pigmentation and staying power,  plus it can be used on both cheeks and lips,  need I say more?

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Bronze
Eyeshadow has not really been on my radar over the last week,  girl got no time for that,  though in the evenings I have been smudging a bit of this eyeliner under my lashline,  just to show some willing haha.

Clinique High Impact Mascara
I knew I could depend on this mascara in the hot weather as it doesn't smudge on my crazy oily eyelids. I haven't worn it in the pool as it's not actually the waterproof version,  I don't think it will hold up that well haha,  but if you have a few mascara issues and don't want to wear waterproof versions,  maybe try this one.

Clarins Instant Light Perfector in 02
I did bring a bunch of bright lip options but honestly, I've just been slicking on a coat of this lip gloss/lip balm hybrid. It's been just too hot to worry about lip maintenance, and you know how much I love bright lips.

This post was a bit of a spur of the moment, regular blogging will commence when I return to the dreary UK, hopefully I can bring a bit of the sunshine with me (fingers crossed).

XOXO Claire


  1. I love Stila blushes! I agree with you, the summer heat leaves me no time to mess around with eyeshadow! The humidity in Florida is ridiculous and I don't want to look like I'm melting! Great picks!


    1. I was definitely humid haha, though this cheek colour didn't move, I was very thankful because it did get a little sweaty :)

  2. Oh wow, this is such a beautiful photo! I love the bright vivid colour of that Stila Color Convertible xx

  3. I really want to try the NARS concealer. With a blush colour as gorgeous as that I'd say one blush would be enough ;)
