4 New Beauty Buys Worth Blowing Your First 2014 Pay Cheque On

It's taken its sweet time but hooray for the arrival of pay day! Now, who hears the distinct call of the beauty hall?

Okay, so techically it’s only been the standard 31 days but how long has January been? It seems like an age since we heard the sound of pennies landing in our cavernous bank accounts, so let’s celebrate by rewarding our perseverence with beauty goodies.

1. Guerlain Bubble Blush In Cherry, £26
The one thing drab winter skin loves above all else is a generous pop of colour. This zingy blush gives wind-ravaged cheeks a healthy perkification and the creamy texture helps with hydration. Way too cute to refuse.
2. Deborah Lippmann Spring 2014 Nail Collection, £16 each
She’s Hollywood’s go-to manicurist, hopping from one A-list home to the next, stopping only to rule over New York Fashion Week. At long last her nail colours are secure in the UK with her Spring 2014 collection ready for you at harrods.com. Six perfectly muted pastels that actually look best on pale skin – hurrah!

3. BLEACH Everyday Dry Shampoo, £6
It was only a matter of time before the cool kids got their own dry shampoo and this one can rival the best of them. Instant refeshment to roots with no white powdery mess so brunettes can get spraying too. With the mornings not getting any lighter, it buys us a little more time in bed at least.

4. Garnier Skin Miracle, £12.99
Is it a BB, a CC? Who cares? This wonder cream will save your sorry skin until the sun finally returns to our shores. Packed with vitamins C & B, firming peptides, pro-retinol for collagen and antioxidant ginger, it transforms your skin on contact and gets you from rough-as to radiant.
