Just a quick mid-week post (well, over mid-week, thank the sweet lord) to let you know about one of the newest beauty brands to hit the M&S beauty aisles - Lola. Lola is a British professional mid-range beauty brand that is exclusive to M&S. I was particularly excited to find out they are based in Clapham, being a South London dweller myself!
After exploring the range with a lovely M&S representative, I was really impressed with the brushes. They are incredibly well priced for the quality, costing £15 on average. I will always be a huge advocate of MAC brushes but they are pricey. If, like myself, you can't afford to kit yourself out with the entire range, these are a great alternative that won't break the bank. They look really professional and are super soft.
Another thing that caught my eye was the beautiful range of colours that the cosmetics come in. All the colours are bright and summery, with plenty of peach and orange hues. The nail polish I'm wearing in the picture below is called "prom queen" and I absolutely love it. I'd say these nail polishes are on a par with Boots' No.7 price and quality-wise but the range of colours is far better and more seasonal.
All in all, I think Lola is a fantastic mid-range brand and is perfect for those who want to treat themselves to something a little special but without the hefty price tag. You can check out the collection here.
