Firstly may I wish all my Jewish friends and followers a happy first night of Hanukkah!
No rambling from me this week just straight onto my picks for the week ahead.


Look Beauty Blush in Pinch via Look Beauty - link
I haven't reached for a pink blush in so long that I vowed to include at least one pink in my stash this week.
Pinch is the perfect winter pink as it is every so slightly cool in tone yet it has enough warmth to 
the shade so it doesn't wash you out.
A great shade to add a warm festive glow to the skin.

Art Deco and Dita Von Teease Highlighting Powder via Tender Loving Skin Care - link
This is all I wanted MAC Lightscapade to be and more,
it is a beautiful pale gold highlight that looks beyond beautiful in the pan.
Admittedly the shade can be a little stark and chalky so you do have to apply with a light hand 
and blend well.


Rimmel Scandal Eyes Show Off Mascara via Boots - link
I don't feel I have been fair to this mascara, I have tried it a few times and wouldn't call it my holy grail
or anything close to it but the brush is pretty funky and great for the bottom lashes
so I have decided to give it a week and see if it can change my opinion on the formula.

Wet n Wild Gilded Age Trio (discontinued)
I have been watching a lot of YouTube videos and a good few have used this palette in tutorials
for a beautiful yet natural smokey eye so that is this weeks mission.


MAC Pure Zen Lipstick (discontinued)
Pure Zen is a light nude almost peach shade that looks great teamed with a grey or silver eye look
but it can leave me washed out, i'm hoping now that it is the winter this will be a little more
complimentary to my skin tone.

Sisley Sheer Peach Lipstick via House of Fraser - link
I'm one of those weirdos that never fully embrace make-up trends or rules and would happily 
wear coral/peach lipstick all year around as this is sheer shade that is slightly orange in tone
it doesn't look quite so out of place and it works great when mixed with a red lipstick.

Are you shopping your stash this week?
