Friday's Favourites

Friday 27 April 2012

Here is a new (soon to be) weekly post on all of my favourites for the week.

What I'm wearing...

I finally found Face of Mineral Therapy Illuminator In Angel Mist on Monday. I LOVE it! It really makes your cheeks POP and has an amazing glow. While I won't use it all over my face, I love it for highlighting.

1 Skin Solution Lip Balm in Vanilla. This has become one of my favourite lip balms ever!! It's so soft and silky and is fantastic to use under a lipgloss or lipstick.

CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lip Colour in Hot Passion (305). This range is perfect for anyone that wants a creamy feel, but with long lasting durability. I love adding a clear gloss over it to make it shiny and glossy. Check back on the weekend for a post on it! 

I received late last week L'Oreal Youth Code Luminosity Extraordinary Seum as apart of a trial I'm apart of from Beauty Heaven. I've been using it for a week now and LOVE it!! While it's only been a week, I've seen some good results and it will be apart of my usual routine from now on. I've loved it so much that I went to Priceline on Monday and bought the matching Hydrating Day Cream (which you can also use at night). Look out next week for a post on them!

Things I'm lusting for...

Essie Nail Polish in Tart Deco. It's such a gorgeous coral colour. They have one at my local Myer, but it doesn't seem right (the mixture has separated). So I'll have to wait until I go into the city next time to get it. 

Clinique's Long Last Lipstick In Runway Coral is an online exclusive that is absolutely gorgeous. Cosmetic Cupcake has some lovely pictures on her blog of it. It's such a versatile colour that is perfect for any season or occasion.  

Blogs or Blog Posts I've loved so much I've read more than once...

Primped have started their Primped Posse this week. It was a competition from last year where readers could enter to write guest posts on Primped. There was one winner selected from each state, that was voted for by the readers. Julie from Me, My Best And I did an AMAZING post about the best beauty advice she has received. Her post is incredible and I've learnt so much from it. Read it HERE!!!! It really is fantastic. 

Moxie's Review of the Chaz Dean Wen Healthy Hair Care System. When I was pregnant back in 2010 I struggled to sleep and saw WAY to many infomercials. One of them that was on most nights was the Chaz Dean "Wen" infomercial. I'm not sure if it was the hormones or lack of sleep, but every night I felt compelled to order it. But I never did. After reading this, I really want to try it out. Once I have finished my shampoos and conditioners, I will be ordering this. After nearly 2 years of curiosity, it's time to bite the bullet and try it out. 

Sharleena's post on her Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Trio has made me lust for it! It's a gorgeous palette and is perfect for a natural glowy look. Last week she also reviewed the Models Prefer Highlighter. The pictures are gorgeous, and will make you want to go out and buy it! I love that Sharleena has a lot of affordable products on her blog, which is fantastic if you're on a budget. She also has a wide range of posts from make up to celebrity styles she envies and lifestyle posts. Check out her blog here

On My Mind...

Trying to figure out what to do with my hair. Half of me wants to do the Ombre craze and colour my hair similar to Miley Cyrus.

I love that it's effortlessly simple and gorgeous, and a plus is I don't have to worry about regrowth! I'm only able to get my hair done on Saturdays, so the less I need to do with hair colour the better. Every 4 weeks is just too hard.  

Otherwise I REALLY need to get my roots done. The last time I got my hair coloured was at Christmas, so it's long overdue.

What are your favourites this week?


  1. thanks lovely- I'm a fool for infomercials too , I live MC hair too, went for something similar except more reddy roots and slightly more graduated blended blonde ends!

    1. I love your hair dark. Its so pretty :) And your welcome for the mention.

  2. Thank you for the mention lovely! I am so glad that you enjoy my blog! xx

    1. You're welcome sweet. Can't wait to read what you will review next :)

  3. Wow. Thank you so much for including me in your list! Chaz Dean is so fun to watch on his Infomercials because he's always so excited to show you his products! :) As a fellow mom, I can totally relate to only being able to go on the weekend. I really like Miley's hair, but I'm not sure it would work on me. Have fun--whatever you decide. Thank you again, I really appreciate it! xo

  4. I am so glad that you love the lip balm!! We will be bringing out some tinted lip butters very soon. We would love your help.... Please fill out our 5min survey on tinted lip butters.
    Everyone who fills out the survey will receive a free tinted lip butter of their choice once they are released. Thanks again xoxo

    1. I can't wait to try out the lip balm when they are released. I also love that you can customise the lip balms. Soooo cool!

  5. Love this kind of post! Ooh go for the ombre!

  6. I love this post and I'm also loving Miley's hair, so I think you should definitely go for it!

    I've been busy checking out your recommended blogs!

    Also so glad that Primped Posse is up and running, in addition to the site being more busy now, it's so good to see so much activity! I'll miss Kat though!

    1. I forgot to mention I also really like the sound of the Clinique lippie, but am a bit hesitant to buy it without trying it on first. I ended up getting the Lancome Rouge in Love lippie in Corail in Love instead. :)
