Weekly Favourites #72

Weekly Favourites #72

Fully in Spring mode - the first sign of sun, daffodils and Easter Eggs on the shelves has me ditching my Winter coat and reaching for pastel hues. Please tell me I am not alone? I'm not a huge fan of the Summer but Spring I always feel is such a revitalising time of the year, I am more likely to sit to plans and health care kicks in the Spring than any other time of the year. Anyway enough of my belly aching and more of the beauty products I have been enjoying as of late...


It has been all about L'Oreal Infallible Mattifying Foundation which has to be the best budget matte foundation out there at the moment and perhaps the find of 2015. I did say perhaps as it is only March. If you like full coverage that is comfortable to wear not heavy nor prone to caking this has to be your next purchase. Since it is now officially Spring I have been reaching for light, pastel toned eyeshadows and no palette has got more use than bareMinerals The Modern Icon Eyeshadow Palette - especially the shade Carefree. Oddly my lips have been really chapped as of late so rather than lipstick it has been a quick, soothing slick of lip balm. I harp on about Epic Blend Lip Balms all the time but they really are my favourite brand of all time.

Weekly Favourites #72

I seldom wear celebrity fragrances with the exception of Britney Spears Fantasy Eau de Parfum and now Taylor Swift Incredible Things Eau de Parfum. Not only is the bottle utterly beautiful but the fragrance is so original - I would best sum it up as a sugary vanilla scent that has a slightly masculine tinge. Yes that sounds bizarre but trust me it is so easy and enjoyable to wear. While we are on the topic of fragrance I can not get enough of Voluspa Candles at the moment - I am rather enjoying the scent Liden & Dark Moss which is currently flickering away as I type this post.

Now that the sun is finally making a reappearance I am feeling a little on the pasty side, as many will know I am a fan of self tanner but want something a little more subtle at the moment. Rather than applying a heavy self tanner I have been gradually building up a little glow using St. Moriz Gradual Self Tanner. First of all this smells incredible, like apricot/peach yoghurt, is moisturising and provides a light natural tan - all the while being affordable. I believe this is yet to launch but trust me it will blow Johnstone's Holiday Lotion (can you recall when that was all anyone used?) out of the water!

  3. I'm surprised you liked this L'Oreal Faundation - maybe I used it wrong but it doesn't impressed me very much... Maybe I should give it another chance ;)

  8. I really like the L'Oréal Infallible Lasting Perfecting Foundation as I love the coverage so maybe I will try this matte version as I have oily skin. I do hate having to powder/blot my t-zone every 5 seconds so maybe I will give this a try...

  11. I'm not sure what to think about the l'Oréal foundation, I've read both positive and negative reviews, so still don't know if I'd try it.
    Thanks for sharing! :)

  18. I would love to try the Infallible Foundation, but the version for normal to dry skin. Sadly, as usual, it is not available in lighter shades here in Germany - for some reason, companies think that we have all dark skin tones here, which we obviously have not! Grrrr. But when I'm in the UK, I will definitely have a look at it :)

  20. Oh my! the Bare Minerals palette is just the perfect accessory to bring one right into spring mode! No wonder you've been loving it!
    Currently i've been REALLY enjoying some Nars, their new foundation (even though my colour match is slightly off) and their blushes as always.
    I also have been really loving lip tints. Saves me the trouble of reapplying so I'm heavily into that too. Current favourite is the Cheek & Lip glow by Dior. Slightly drying cos it offers zero hydration, I just counter that with a balm and call it a day :-)

  22. That candle sounds delicious. I keep meaning to try St.Moritz, was afraid it would be too dark for my pale self but good to know they do a gradual one thanks :-) I'm intrigued by the Taylor Swift perfume, I don't do sugary but the base notes sound good and the bottle is so pretty!
