Tali Talks.. Spring Favourites

Hi everyone, it's Tali from the old The Gloss Goss blog! Even though I deleted my blogs (permanently I'm afraid) I'm still good friends with a few of your favorite UK bloggers. Over dinner last week they brought up the idea of me guest blogging every once in a while. I didn't intend to but they kept going on and on about it.. I couldn't eat my Nandos in peace! So I agreed and every season I'll try do a small post here on the amazing Bubblegarm blog.. keep the ladies happy.

Spring Favourites
Peach/Coral lipstick- I seem to have a bit of an addiction. In my defence they are not all the same if you look very closely! Some have.. err shimmer and some don't!
My favourite 4 right now are all MAC. Shy Girl, Ravishing, Jazzed & Costa Chic.. seriously gorgeous shades.
I have noticed that they do look completely different on everyone. It all depends on the color of your lips and complexion to start with.. but it's safe to say these are a right in the medium to dark-tan skincolor comfort zone.
Above is what I wore today.. Costa Chic!

Clinique skincare- Thanks to a Bubblegarm post, I gave it a go when I broke out badly using a new foundation. It really saved my skin and fast. I saw results in hours! The toner is a little bit strong for 2x daily use as suggested but it did work wonders on my skin.
They do fantastic small sized sets for £20 where you get a facial wash, toner and moisturizer for your skin type. A perfect way to try the brand or to get some breakout relief. I do like and prefer natural products.. but as Muhsine once said, sometimes natural is not enough!

Chan Luu Wrap Bracelets- There are just so many options to chose from. Click here to see the official website. Unfortunately they are hard to find and over-priced in Europe (I got mine from the US) but keep your eyes open as I have seen them and have a feeling they will be a hit here too.
I like how they can be worn alone or mixed in with pretty much anything else you have in your collection.
I went for the rose gold on black wrap a few weeks ago and then was given a turquoise on brown leather wrap as a gift. <3

Also loving.. L'Oreal Voluminous mascara, Dior Matte bronzer, Australian Organics body wash & shampoo, coconut water, Nandos with the girls, jewellery shopping with Muhsine..Clinique skincare, Nars Super Orgasm lipgloss, peach lipstick, Dior Miss Cherie perfume, H&M Spring Collection & the London sunshine!

That's it for now! Enjoy Spring! :)

Vida said...

Great post! You should def do these more often =) I love coral lipsticks. I tried costa chic on at the counter and it wasn't what I expected. It looks amazing on you, so maybe I will go back and give it a second try.

loveaudrey said...

Oh Tali I miss your blog too! So, so much! You have been such an inspiration during my time blogging.

I'm loving coral lips too, jazzed and ever hip are my favourites. I need to have a look at Costa Chic and Shy Girl I think, very pretty!

cbsg5861 said...

What a lovely surprise, yay!!! I enjoyed reading theGlossGoss blog so much, and the vlogs on Youtube were a treat... I'm so glad you're back Tali, even for once a month!

I'm loving coral lips at the moment, my favourite is Vegas Volt by Mac. Except that I can't really wear it yet- pasty skin and a bright lip don't look pretty together :(

Kisses to you girls both!!!

Ella Pretty Blog said...

Tali - reading your post is so bittersweet - I *LOVE* seeing your lovely pics again and hearing all your thoughts - but I miss your blog *SO* much, it's not even funny! Who would have thought I'd get so addicted to reading your posts!

I wish you'd come back to regular blogging - even if it was a very impersonal blog...although I love reading abour your life and seeing your pics, I understand how intrusive the attention from that can be.

Your taste and style is just so amazing - having regular advice from you would just be so awesome :-)

hannah said...

Great post Tali :) I think I need to get a coral lipstick! I spy a shopping trip (with cake ;) Love the bracelets too (although my bank balance won't ;) ) Re Clinique, I found it dried my skin lots and actually made my skin product more oil! Agh!

Thanks so much for posting here. Miss your blog xxx

Muhsine said...

Hey Tali it’s so nice to see a post from you, thank you for doing this guest post!! As you can all see we all miss your blog very much, you HAVE to come back!
I love peachy corals for spring too, I have been rocking costa chic and jazzed a lot too, I have neglected shy girl as mine has gone abit manky, I don’t own Ravishing but that looks gorgeous too! I’m so glad the Clinique system also worked for you, I only use the toner once a day or even every other day as it’s very strong. The wrap bracelets look amazing, and I am yet to try that dress on in the correct size! *HUGS* xXx

Yay Tali! I miss your blog so much, it was my favourite, but I can empathise with why you did it.

I'm so pleased to see that you've joined up with Muhsine, makes me love Bubblegarm even more.

Hi Tali! You sure make it hard to find you! (Yes, I searched!) I'm sorry you quit blogging, but I'll take a guest post now and again. How's Mitzy doing? It's been so long since I've read your honest, witty reviews!

It's nice to read a post from you again!

Tali, I miss your post so much. And I SAW YOU the other day, 10th April. You were on the phone outside Kensington garden. :)

Jennifer said...

Oh I love looking at those bright, fun lipsticks! I just MAC's pro longwear lipstick in Good to Go and its a gorgeous bright orange/red I love it! I am getting more into corals rather than pinks lately. I also used to work for Clinique, I agree the clarifying lotions are strong and the key is using a level that works, 2 and 3 are the best for most people. Clinique is so good for oily skin, I also really love the spot healing gel and t-zone shine control for summer.

Nav said...

Tali you write the best posts!
i miss your blog, used to learn so much from it :(

⌂ Log Cabin Girl ⌂ said...

Tali, so wonderful to see you guest-post! I love it! I miss your blog so much too. I'm all about Dior Miss Cherie, despite my resistance to popular perfumes. It's divine!

Pikapolonica said...

Tali, I'm so glad that you're blogging here again.
But still I+m waiting for you to come out with your own blog again ... every day I remember yo and your blog and I also do miss your videos on youtube.
I have the feeling, that you are an awesome person. Greetings from an croatian girl from germany! :)
