Weekly Favourites #7

Weekly Favourites

Shall I let you in on a secret? I have already began my Christmas shopping - I kid you not I am nearly finished and boy does it feel good. As a result my bank balance is all but dilapidated so my stash has been taking a hit but it is always good to rediscover an old favourite isn't it?

Weekly Favourites

The week past was the week I finally understood the fuss and hype for that matter surrounding the infamous Emma Hardie Moringa Amazing Face Cleansing Balm. My skin is clear, softer, brighter and generally in a better state. At £34 it is not cheap but a little goes a long, long way and I kid you not when I say it removes every scrap of make-up, dirt and grime with ease. Could this replace my beloved Aurelia Miracle Cleanser? Probably not but it does come a close second!

Weekly Favourites

I have quite a few make-up favourites this week including the new Barry M Flawless Finish Foundation which hand on heart is one of the best high street foundations I have stumbled upon recently. It is nourishing, kind to the skin and offers a soft matte finish with a moderate level of coverage that helps keep oil at bay. It is one of the few foundations that should suit all skin types and is a complete snip at less than £6 per bottle.
You can find Barry M Flawless Finish Foundation via Boots for £5.99 - link 
and via Superdrug for the same price but with free delivery - link

Weekly Favourites

On my eyes this week has been a combination of the beautiful Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate palette which is a neutral lovers dream and probably this seasons must have palette. Seven great shades that suit all complexions and needs housed in one sleek palette, it is easy to see why this keeps selling out. 
At the moment you can find it via Selfridges - link but I would be quick should you desire it.

Weekly Favourites

My other eye product of choice is the new Bourjois Color Edition 24H Cream Eyeshadows namely the shade 05 Prune Nocturne. If you are looking for a dupe for Chanel's Ebloui then look no further this is the budget version for you an almost maroon shade that is a combination of purple, brown and red. A great autumnal shade that is not lacking in pigmentation and so quick and easy to slick on and forget about.
You can find the Bourjois Color Edition 24H Cream Eyeshadows via Boots - link

Weekly Favourites

I'm not at all familiar with the brand Lord & Berry but I have been relying on their Peach Gleam lipstick on a near daily basis - a light peachy based nude that is easy to wear and flattering. Yes the texture is a little gritty and as a result somewhat drying but I can ignore that for the pretty shade.
You can find Lord & Berry cosmetics via ASOS - link

Weekly Favourites

I kid you not when I say that I have found the most perfect silver glitter polish ever in the form of Bourjois It's Raining Stars 1 Seconde Nail Enamel. It covers like a dream, dries quickly and leaves you with the most sparkly silver nails known to man. I have been teaming it with pastel shades for a pretty manicure.
You can find it via Boots (oddly it is called Star Rain on here) - link

Weekly Favourites

My two miscellaneous products of the week are Yankee's Lake Sunset wax tarts typically my go to scent of late has been Fireside Treats but for the last few days it has been all about this fragrance. It reminds me somewhat of Yankee's Pink Sands only a little more mellow yet still lightly fruity. I have also rediscovered an old childhood favourite in the form of The Little Prince by Antione De Saint-Exupery. As an adult you see the novel for what it is (ground breaking and years beyond its time) coupled with the magic of reading this as a child. I won't lie I am a little peeved that they are making this into a film with James Franco in the cast. Nope. No thank you.

What are your favourite products from the week past?
Products and items that are featured on The Sunday Girl may have been sent for consideration of feature, or may be items that I have purchased myself. Regardless all opinions expressed on this site are of my own and honest. Any sponsored content will be clearly marked, you can read my full disclaimer here at any time.


  1. Hands down (and it is a fairly new release, plus it is hight street) it has to be Sleek MakeUP's Vintage Romance i-Divine palette and the Antique Gold blusher to go with it. Both gorgeous. Got them a few weeks ago, oohed and aahed over them and put them to one side.

    It wasn't until I saw somebody mention that another of Sleek MakeUP's blushes (Pomegranate) was a half decent dupe for MAC's Cranberry eyeshadow - I live a plane or boat ride away from the nearest MAC counter - that I got them out and haven't put them away since. That and my Maybelline Color Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate (great base for the looks I have been going for) have been the trifecta of the week for me.

  2. I love this type of posts. I'm really enjoying my MAC smokelux palette and Tarte Achiote blush.

  3. Gorgeous I really want the bourjois paint pot! Such a fab colour, this week I've been loving macs msf soft and gentle it's a new purchase of mine no idea why I didn't buy it sooner!

  5. I love those bourjouis eye colours I'm pig sick as I have a few of the chanel ones similar and they are so much more expensive xx

  6. I want the Bobbi Brown palette so much, my heart sank when I saw it was sold out on their site but now you've mentioned Selfridges, I have to buy it, although I've just bought the Nars Ride up to the Moon palette.

  7. Still trying to decide whether the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm is worth getting!!

  9. Great picks! That Bobbi Brown palette looks especially lovely :)


  10. I've been lusting over the Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate palette ever since it started popping up on blogs. just my luck that it would be sold out by the time I got paid, and now I have to wait until the end of the month again to pick it up! I can't wait to try it, and I might even be picking up a couple of the Bourjois cream shadow pots, they look lovely!

    Models Own Fruit Pastels collection - I won the Fruit Pastels and Ice Neons collections in a twitter giveaway last week and this week I've been wearing the fruit pastels, lovely creamy pale pastels which look super cute and with the Avon 24k gold topcoat look frosty and perfect for the coming winter.
