I spoke not so long ago about how I felt I had outgrew the shopping my stash concept, it became boring and frankly restrictive...yawn! I know how we all love a good rummage around each others make-up bags (guilty) and what better way than nosing at my weekly favourites?
First up I have been drowning both myself and my sorrows with Stella McCartney's L.I.L.Y, gah it is just so beautiful and despite being a light floral it is one of those scents I can see myself wearing all year round. The only problem is that I have a tendency to over apply...oops! The L.I.L.Y candle is calling my name...
By now it has been well established that I am a coral fiend when it comes to make-up and like a creature of habit there are many bright coral offerings currently lurking in my make-up bag. For my cheeks it has been either Josie Maran's Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Coral Oasis which is wonderful for pairing with a tinted moisturiser or dare I say it a bare face! For those days when only full coverage foundation will do I have been relying on Illamasqua's Tremble blush which may appear pink in the pan but rest assure once on the cheeks it becomes a light pink coral. For my lips it has been all about MAC's Vegas Volt which I affectionately dub my grown up coral as it has a slight red leaning.
I am so dull when it comes to eye make-up and have been buffing a little of a matte orange based brown into my crease for definition, a quick slick of mascara and done. The shade I favour is from Wet n Wild but it is a pretty basic shade that you should be able to find on countless make-up counters. Speaking of mascara I have no current favourite, in-fact I am going through an "I hate mascara" phase. Nothing is working for me in terms of mascara at the moment so please answers (and suggestions on a post card). I also feel the same about foundation but that's a story for another time.
Skincare wise I have been relying on a combination of Clarins Blue Orchid Facial Oil and the new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair to work their magic and I can happily say that my skin has been looking rather smashing if I don't say so myself.
What product have you been reaching for most this week, it never hurts to build a wishlist ha!
