It's been a funny ol' week lots of new launches landed on my doorstep and filled my basket but truth be told not many have wormed their way into my daily grasp.
That being said both Garnier's Moisture Match Moisturiser and Rimmel's Exaggerate Eye Lid Primer are new to the beauty stands and both have been featuring fairly heavily in my beauty routine for the last week.
Garnier's Moisture Match Moisturiser for Oily/Combination skin is my daily moisturiser, some have said it dries out the skin but I have yet to experience that but truthfully it has only be a little over a week of continuous use so there is still time for it do that. However at the moment I am rather enjoying the light gel texture, it is cooling yet provides a light dose of hydration while leaving my skin perfectly matte for applying a base on top off.
Speaking of basis I haven't been truly loyal to any foundation this week but have found myself reaching for Clarins Mineral Loose Powder, it sets my make-up perfectly yet is light and doesn't mask the skin.
Again this is a cooling product and almost feels liquid like when applying to the skin, a strange sensation to pin point but anyone who has tried MAC's Magically Cool Liquid Powder will understand what I mean.
I really must pick up a small container with a sifter to decant some of this powder for travel as it is huge
and not at all ideal for lugging around.
On my eyes I have been enjoying a combination of NARS Kalahari duo which has to be one of my favourite neutral eyeshadow pallets (if you can call it that) teamed with Anastasia of Beverly Hills Covet Waterproof Eye Liner in Steel, which may seem like a weird combination but trust me it really allows blue eyes to pop!
To set everything I have been relying on Rimmel's Exaggerate Eye Shadow Primer which has to be one of the best high street primers I have stumbled upon. I am also really enjoying Ted Baker's new eyelash curlers which really give higher end versions a run for their money! Much like the rest of the Khroma make-up collection I am rather partial to a lick or two of The Quickie mascara it is all I wanted MAX Factor False Lash to be and more.
I haven't been all that exciting when it comes to my lipstick choices this week and have been relying on Stila's Liquid Lipstick in Dolce to give me a fool proof nude lip all week long. If you have not tested out Stila's Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick's for yourself you really are missing out, I consider them a must for any matte lipstick lover and really can not be without mine.
You can't really tell from the photo but my dinky little bottle of Thierry Mugler's Womanity is coming to an end which means I really can't put off buying a full size bottle much longer...oh how my bank balance weeps!
As many will know I am a huge, huge, hugeeee fan of Thierry Mugler's Alien but recently my heart is being swayed by the slightly masculine but super sexy notes of Womanity.
