I'm don't like to start a post with an apology but it is due.
I'm rather behind on comments and know that many have left a question or two,
life has been a little hectic the last few days so I haven't had any time to sit down and reply
but I will tonight, same applies for my now bulging mail box!

Now that is out of the way, on with the stash...


Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation
I found a little unused bottle of this hiding in a travel bag while tidying up
and as I'm not off to anywhere nice or on any travels any time soon I thought I'd re-visit the formula.
I recall liking it but not hailing it a must have, now my skin has changed from being super oily to
almost normal I'm wondering if it will perhaps gleam different results?

Illamasqua Tremble Blush
I am purposely neglecting my coral and bronze toned blushes for pink shades so this makes the cut, admittedly it is not the pinkest of pinks but it is a step in the right direction.

NARS Satellite of Love Highlighter
I have not neglected this highlighter but as it is fairly new I do want to get plenty of use from it,
the light glowy, bronze peach shade is not only pretty but universal so it goes with most
blushes and skin tones.
The one item I can not recommend enough from the NARS Warhol collection.


MAC Shanghai Spice Lipstick
I couldn't tell you the last time I have sported this shade which is such a shame as it is the perfect
blend of pink and brown with a hint of peach thanks to its yellow undertone.
This is a everyday shade and one I resolve to using more often!

Illamasqua Over Lipstick
Now don't get me wrong I deem Illamasqua to be a great brand that does blushes like no other
but I'm not in love with their matte formulated lipsticks.
At first I thought it was just me but it seems many agree that the matte formula is thick, heavy and dry,
which is a shame as the colour pay off and shade are beautiful so this week I plan on finding a way
to get this to work best for me.


MAC Nail Enamel in Everything That Glitters
Sadly as truly dazzling as this polish may appear in the bottle it dries to a matte finish
and then looses all of its pizazz, which is truly annoying as other online swatches show it to 
be very different from what I have experienced!
This week I am going to play around with it and try to achieve a similar result without loosing my mind,
easier said that done eh?

Have you shopped your stash this weekend?
