My Adore Beauty haul

Adore Beauty is my favourite online beauty destination and every now and again I like to treat myself with some exciting new products. My orders always arrive promptly (with complimentary samples and chocolate), accompanied by beautiful, helpful service via email, twitter and Facebook.

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H
I bought this because I absolutely love the Lancome Teint Miracle foundation and I liked the idea of a fuller coverage, longer lasting alternative.
I have to say, the Teint Miracle is still my favourite, but this is lovely. The main difference between them is the finish - this is matte, while the Teint Miracle is glowy. I prefer a glowy finish, even though I have a normal-to-oily skintype. The radiance is more flattering because it diffuses and deflects away from any flaws, rather than just providing coverage.
For a matte finish, though, it is perfect. It sits beautifully on my skin and it is not at all powdery or unnatural, just shine-free and velvety.
In conclusion, I think I will save this for my good skin days. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a full coverage, matte, long lasting, oil-free foundation.
(Psst: Adore Beauty currently offers a Lancome foundation brush as a Gift with Purchase.)

The Aveda Full Abundance Hair Potion is one of my HG products. Zoe Foster put me onto it. It creates that sexy, worn-in, textured finish to freshly washed and styled hair.
Zoe has since recommended this version as a viable alternative so I decided to try it. So far, so good! 

O&M Original Queenie Firm Hold Hairspray
I haven't used this yet but it is very pretty.
