Instant beauty results – products that make a difference…
Gosh, is it really Autumn already? How did that happen? Time doesn’t half move quickly. One minute, we’re on our hols with husbands, kids and oversized sunglasses, the next we’re back together reviewing beauty advent calendars – yes, they really are on pre-order! (more about them coming soon, but here are our favourite two – hurry, before they’re out of stock: John Lewis & LookFantastic )
Not only does time move quickly – nobody seems to have enough of it. We’ve all become desperate for instant gratification and our impatience drives us to always be looking for a quick fix…whether it’s a same day delivery parcel from Amazon, your dinner in minutes from Deliveroo, or a beauty app that gets a therapist to your door pronto! So welcome to the world of the Quick Fix. When it comes to makeup and skincare we all want immediate results….to look in the mirror and see a transformation right before our very eyes!!
Last week, we found such a product. The Chantecaille Rose de Mai Eye Lift really does work in minutes on under eye puffiness and dark circles. (click here to see how brilliantly and instantly it works). But not only will it depuff your eyes…it might make them water at the sight of the price tag – £83. So in true Verymakeupmad style, we went on the hunt for an alternative – a product with the same instant results (although admittedly, not as cumulative), that wouldn’t break the bank. And we’ve found it in Polaar Icymagic Instant Eye Contour Multi Energiser, £29.50 (but £23.59 with our VERYMAKEUPMAD20 discount code!). Click here to see M putting it to good use.
Of course, if you’re really penny pinching, you could just pop a couple of spoons in the fridge (they don’t have to be as pretty as M’s butterfly ones, but it helps) and hold them under your eyes for a couple of minutes. But where’s the fun in that?
As an over enthusiastic beauty duo we spend a lot of time on the prowl…looking for “The One”, forever in the hope of striking it lucky! We trial all the beauty we get our hands on and only bring you the very best products. That we know give great results. Because let’s face it, magic wands and sorcery will not work to eradicate fine lines, uneven skin tone or breakouts… but think of us as your ‘Fairy Beauty Mothers’ and rest assured we’ll find you products to save your proverbial skin… whether instantly or over time.
Take this week, for instance. We were introduced to a great skincare brand, Pai, that we can’t wait to share with you. The products are specifically targeted to sensitive, reactive skins – with amazing, natural ingredients and proven results. We’re particularly excited about the bestselling Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil, £24. Watch out for our Pai Post coming soon…
We’re not here to simply sell you products in every blog we write. We’re all about being honest and bringing you great beauty, showing you what’s hot, innovative and worth a splurge. And you can always ask us whether it’s the right product for you.
That’s why we offer our Consultancy Service (face-to-face or over FaceTime, so don’t despair if you’re not local) to help you, our beauty soulmates, get to grips with your beauty concerns. We always offer bespoke product suggestions (and provide short videos to show you how best to use them) and everything has the Verymakeupmad seal of approval. From skincare regimes and targeting specific issues, to foundation matching and anti-ageing, we know that when it comes to beauty, there’s no such thing as ‘one product fits all’. It’s a minefield out there, with so many factors to take into account, including skin type/age/lifestyle/budget. So get in touch with us today and put Verymakeupmad to the test…let us help you make the most of your beauty choices.
Love, instant fixes & great advice,
Vikki & Mala xx
