I promised I'd update my desert island list, and it seems appropriate to do it just after the bench of
doom er facial remediation post. The following are items that I have repeat purchased in the last 3 months.
So to start shampoo. Have you heard of Mane 'n Tail?
This is a reasonably priced iconic shampoo and conditioner available online, just google. My youngest daughter Miss 18, enjoys neighing when I mention my hair wash. This is because the original Mane 'n Tail was designed for horses manes and tails but then bottled for humans too, and that's still the case. I use the set for coloured hair, not labelled suitable for horses. With my fine hair I find this set for coloured hair provides body plus I get 3 days clean hair. When I was away in NYC I used a high street brand for coloured hair. It made me appreciate this all the more. My hair was flat, lifeless and needed washing after 2 days.
Do you wear shower caps? I didn't until I read a tip that it stops the steam of the shower flattening, frizzing or whatever other 'ing' humidity does to your hair. I invested in this one 18 months ago and finally the elastic has gone loose. I have repurchased. It's by Dirty Works and available in some Sainsbury's. I like the sturdiness and slightly hip pattern and colour.
Tarte CC cream. I mentioned this before. I stocked up on more when I was in NYC.
Trish mcevoy eye base. This is available from Harvey Nicholls and Selfridges in the UK and Bloomingdales in the USA. I've used this as eye primer for years and just adore it. It provides me with a good base for eyeshadow. It really works.
Daniel Sandler lipstick in Cherub. This has lasted me 5 years I'm sure. Now worn out I've found this shade still available from his website. I stocked up with two. I have pink lipsticks, red lipsticks and cinnamon coloured which all have their particular place with my clothes. Reds and pinks with grey, cinnamon with teal and so on. Cherub is universal in my wardrobe. A very handy shade to have around.
