I’m sure you all know and love Trinny Woodall, but have you heard of Trinny London ? You may have seen some images of this superb new range of beauty products on your social media channels? Or perhaps like me, you are already a long-time fan of Trinny and have been following along with her latest adventures?
Trinny has just launched her own collection of innovative make-up and beauty products, appropriately called Trinny London. I think it is clever in more ways than one! So let me explain…
3 Reasons why these products are so clever?
They are stackable
Yep stackable! Each little pot can be stacked upon the one before it, which means more room in your make-up bag or less products taking up room in your handbag. It is the answer to your prayers if like me you like to travel light. I always try to get away with just hand luggage when I travel, so much easier and quicker to navigate an airport with just a trolley.
Match to me.
Do you buy make-up online or in the stores these days? I used to visit all the stores to get tested for my correct colour match and afterwards I buy that product online.
However, buying a brand new product online can be risky. How can you be sure you are purchasing the correct tone, colour or shade for your skin? Don’t forget that very often make-up is non-returnable. I have made some major, very expensive, foundation mistakes in the past and vowed never again to buy online unless I’m 100% sure of a good match.
Worry no more! Trinny London has a brilliant personalised service called ‘Match to me’ to help when you buy online. Simply answer some specific questions about your colouring and your hair and at the end you will have a perfectly matched set of products that will work with your skin tones and hair colour.
How clever is that?
The products are all cream based.
This means that unlike powdered products you can touch up your make-up throughout the day, without feeling clogged up. You can layer on top of what you are already wearing. The products are suitable for all ages but as a 54-year-old woman of a certain age, I now prefer a cream-based product.
Ok, So let’s talk about the details. My favourite new product obsession from Trinny London has to be this one…
Bff cream is a skin perfector with SPF30, (best face friend) my match was in the light base. Comes in a tube with a pump top, perfect because you only need a touch. It looks white when squeezed from the tube but changes on your skin. Its like magic.
My verdict: It makes my skin feel incredibly soft. In fact, if I may say so myself, my skin glows when I wear this, truly! It subtly reflects the light and my face feels soothingly moisturised too. Have I mentioned how heavenly it smells?
The rest of the products that I have are cream filled little 4g pots and as I explained above, these little pots have screw on lids and stack together….
Just a touch Concealer.
You only need to put a small amount on the bits you want covered, its soft, creamy and performs its job very well, providing a light natural layer. I have this in Zandy
This is a contour cream. Surprisingly it looks grey in the pot, but when applied it warms, shades and shapes your face. The one I use is called Kate. I love it very much, so much so I’m taking Kate on vacation with me!
This adds a warm flush to the apples of my cheeks. Extremely natural looking. Add a touch with your fingers and blend…simple. My matched shade is called Katrin named after one of Trinny’s best friends
A natural illuminator (without any of those harsh glittery bits that stick in your wrinkles!) I swear it makes me look younger? The other half agrees! I use The Right Light
On your lips or on your cheeks, another natural looking flush. I am loving my Freddie lip2cheek colour. Even if you have a tiny handbag and you take just one pot, then this is the one.
On Being Totally Honest with you…
Ok, obviously I am a blogger and yes, I was invited to a delicious dinner at Trinny London HQ. Therefore, in answer to your question, yes I was generously gifted these miraculous little pots, but you know what? When these stacking pots run out I will be buying them again and again. I have already been eyeing up the eyeshadows!
The ‘match to me system’ is, in my opinion fool proof, the quality is excellent, and I now know having tried the products already, that they will be well worth every penny
What more can I say? Except huge congrats to Trinny London and her team. We, as in my female family and friends, like it very, very much and we can’t wait to see what will be coming next…
The explanation for these bright sunny pics is because I am visiting Mum in Florida!
