Space NK Spotlight: Oskia, Surratt Beauty, BY TERRY and More!

*Oskia Super 16 Pro-Collagen Serum 
The cult-favorite skincare brand Oskia London has landed at Space NK! In honor of its Stateside debut, I'll be sharing my experience with one of the most highly lauded products in the line--the *Oskia Super 16 Pro-Collagen Serum--as well as share some swatches of Space NK products that have been on heavy rotation as of late. 

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of my currently Space NK favorites in action as well as the Bottom Line...

The *Oskia London Super 16 Pro-Collagen Serum 
I've been experimenting with the *Oskia London Super 16 Pro-Collagen Serum for the past couple of weeks and am very pleased with the results thus far. Rife with bioactive, including seaweed extract and antioxidants as well as a bevy of vitamins, this weightless formula instantly absorbs into skin while adding veil of moisture and sensation of bounce to the skin. I prefer to apply at night and, upon waking am noting that my skin feels balanced and nourished and looks brighter and more taut. I can't wait to continue my trial so I may further calibrate my results!

Official details, courtesy of Space NK:

Tackle the many signs of ageing with Oskia Super 16 Pro-Collagen Serum, a powerful serum that targets and minimises the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots and fine lines. The rich blend of 16 super nutrients and bio-actives work together to impart a youthful radiance for healthier looking skin.
The advanced formula boasts the ground-breaking ingredient Bakuchiol, derived from Indian Babchi seeds, which has been hailed as a natural alternative to retinol without the skin sensitivity effects. The gentle and lightweight serum improves skin elasticity and also repairs and soothes sun damaged and irritated skin.


Enriched with chondrus crispus seaweed extract, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3 and C and other essential antioxidants, Super 16 Pro-Collagen Serum works meticulously on uneven skin tones and boosts sensitive skin for a glowing complexion.
On heavy rotation. 
Additionally, I am keen to share some Space NK products on heavy rotation in my current routine as 


// FACE, BASE and HAIR //
  • *BY TERRY Densiliss Foundation #7: A classic formula that creates a pristine canvas, I recently rediscovered this in my stash and am stunned the way just a single pump perfects my skin. It's truly a magic wand for skin!
  • Surratt Beauty Perfectionniste Concealer #3: This brilliant triad includes two complementary concealer shades (which can be applied separately or, ideally, mixed together for a perfect match) and a setting powder for maximum efficacy. 
  • *Rodial Instaglam Highlighting Powder #1: A golden glow that makes skin look lit-from-within can be achieved with just a few swipes of this luminous powder on the high points of one's face. It's exceptionally finely-milled so the radiance is subtle, rather than shimmery. 
  • *Surratt Beauty Artistique Cheek Brush: My favorite brush of life--truly, it makes an appearance in nearly every single Beauty Professor story--it masterfully applies bronzer and blush with adept ease. 
  • *Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil: One or two pumps post shower impressively tames my oft wildly tangly mane while adding shine and the most divine fragrance on the planet...cannot get enough the the signature Oribe Cote d' Azur.

Eyes and Lips. 
// EYES and LIPS //
  • Hourglass Scattered Light Eyeshadow in Foil, Aura and Reflect: These eyeshadows have steadily been in my makeup bag for nearly a year and get used multiple times a week. Lightweight, long lasting and absurdly easy to apply (I often forgo a brush for my fingertips), these deliver pure light to the eyes and never disappoint. Sometimes, they're all I'll put on my eyes for weeks on end! 
  • *BY TERRY Lip Expert Matte in Vintage Nude and My Red: This latest lip formula from the resplendent Terry features two finishes--matte and shine--and I am wearing both in the images at the end of this post. Vintage Nude in the matte version is formidably opaque and dries down to a gorgeous medium rosy nude and My Red is perhaps the most vibrant red I've ever worn (see for your self in the images that follow)! For being matte, the formula is surprisingly lush and comfortable. 
  • *BY TERRY Lip Expert Shine in Bare Flirt, Vintage Nude and My Red: For those that prefer a more reflective finish, the Shine option is luscious and mirror-like in nature. Bare Flirt is a quintessential milky peachy pink, Vintage Nude is a taupe-meets-nude that's quite unusually pretty and My Red is a classic red packed with tons of pigment, especially for a gloss.

Style notes. 
// STYLE NOTES //
  • You Half Basic Tee: I purchased this body conscious tee in a large (I like extra length and a less clingy fit) and am over the moon with the cheerful color and 1960s cut. 
  • Agolde Dee Shorts: When I was in San Diego a couple of weeks ago, I bought this pair of high waisted cutoffs at a boutique and am so pleased with their fit and look that I tracked them down on Revolve and bought two more 
  • Nike Air Max 270: Always on my feet...I have 3 pairs and will probably buy more soon; she it comes to sneakers, there is nothing more comfortable. 


Last look. 
 Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this Space NK Spotlight and introduction to Oskia London and would love to know if you've tried anything from the line. Do tell!

Good things ahead, including a fresh get-ready-with-me video tutorial and a host of new product procurements...cannot wait to share.

xx and more soon,
