Weekly Favourites #60

What is it about Sunday's? I try each week to get so much done on the Sabbath and more often than not it results in me, curled up on the sofa watching the Gilmore Girls. Anyway I have mustered up enough energy to tare myself away from the TV to share my favourite beauty products from the last seven days or so.

Lets begin with fragrance, once again I have dusted off Tom Ford Violet Blonde Eau de Parfum. I can not get enough of this sweet, floral blend. It is soft yet makes a statement and lasts incredibly long on my skin and clothes for that matter.

A new purchase (well gift with purchase actually) that has been getting a lot of love is Space.NK Smoky Rose candle. A new obsession for sure. I adore that the scent is both sweet and smoky, as well as being oddly romantic! If money was no object I would fill my entire home with this candle. It really is that beautiful and the scent throw is out of this world.

As per usual my eye make-up has been pretty basic (basic bish) - a quick slick of Urban Decay's Perversion Mascara. This is one of the few mascaras that doesn't weigh my flimsy eyelashes down, rather it gives me long, fluttery, thick lashes that curl so much easier. I am a convert. As someone with pretty small eyes I rely heavily on Rimmel ScandalEyes Khol in Nude as it opens up my eyes and makes them look brighter. If you have yet to try nude eyeliner do it and do it soon. As far as formulas go this is great - lasts all day, creamy yet firm. One of the best out there in my opinion. I couldn't not mention Make Up Forever Aqua Brow - not only is the shade 10 for my light brows but the gel formula stays in place all day and is easily the most natural looking brow product I own.

I have been a little fast and loose with lip products, in other words not at all loyal to one product this week. Notable mentions include Bobbi Brown Lip Liner in Burnt Orange. I'm not entirely comfortable with a full, deep red lip (confidence issues and all that) so this orange based red, gives me a festive pout without leaving me overly self concious. I am weird little bug. For days when I have craved a pink lip it has been Sephora Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Color in Petal. A pretty, dusky pink that wears all day with ease and despite being matte it doesn't dry my lips out. I kick myself each time I apply that I didn't purchase more shades. As it is Winter a lip balm is always on my person and I rather enjoy and recommend Blistex Intense Moisturiser. It heals, soothes and moisturises chapped lips - not to mention it is cheap as chips. What is not to like?

If like myself, your skin is less than well behaved I really do rate L'Oreal' True Match Concealer. A soft, creamy and easy to blend formula that not only disguises blemishes but also dark circles. It stays in place all day and is exceptionally comfortable to wear. Ten out of ten from me.

  9. The Sephora brand lipstick is such a beautiful colour!

  10. Great picks! I'm not a fan of red lipstick on myself either - I feel very clown-ish wearing them, and prefer orangey-reds and coral-reds, like MAC Vegas Volt and Party Parrot!

  11. Love the selection of products! Reminded me to use my nude liner more, have been neglecting it for too long.
