Friday's Favourites

Sunday 24 June 2012

Hi Lovelies! 

This week has just flown by. I'm a bit behind on my blogging, so even though it's Sunday, you're getting my favourites for the week today! 

What I'm wearing...

My make up has been incredibly boring this week. I've been wearing a lot of "no make up" make up looks. I've fallen in love again with my Chanel Mat Lumiere Fluide Foundation. Even though it's pricey, it's worth every cent! 

Talking about falling in love again, I am loving my Nude By Nature Finishing Viel. I love that you can wear this over any type or brand of foundation or powder. It sets your make up and gives you a gorgeous glow without being sparkly or glittery. It also lasts you forever!! 

I've been using the new Rimmel Sexy Curves Full Figure Mascara. It's a nice mascara that really does lengthen my lashes, but doesn't really make them look thick. It's great for the price, but I've been using Benefit's BADgal Lash Mascara first to thicken up my lashes then use the Rimmel mascara to lengthen them. I still don't know if I like this mascara or not.

Things I'm lusting for...

A money tree... ;)

Blogs or blog posts I've loved so much I've read more than once...

This week instead of doing my usual blog reading (since I've been quite busy) I've been Googling products and reading reviews on blogs instead. Here are some of the products I've been searching for...

I was watching one of Fluer De Force's youTube videos and saw her rave about the YSL Glossy Stain. It looks so gorgeous. I haven't used YSL make up before, but this post made me want to get the whole range of Glossy Stains! 

Over at The Science of Beauty, Sarah reviewed the Planet Eve Cleansing Oil. I have a bit of a love hate relationship with cleansing oils. The wrong one can make you break out, but the right one makes your skin clean and gorgeous. I'm thinking of either getting this or Bloom's Organic Cleansing Oil. I'm not in a huge rush to get it, so I might do a little more research on both of these before buying.

I've really been loving Say Tioco Artillero's blog. I found it when finding swatches for MeMeMe products and think it's such a great blog. 

On My Mind...

My spending ban has failed miserably this week. MeMeMe Cosmetics has a 30-50% off sale at the moment so I ended up buying quite a few things. More on that to come very soon!! I also purchased the Alpha H Liquid Gold Skin Perfecting System Kit from Bellabox for the Vogue Fashion Night Out. I can't wait to try this but am going to wait until Monday night after I finish work. That way if I have a reaction I have a couple of days until i need to go outside for it to calm down (It's always scary trying new products!!). I also spent up at Priceline and got the free goodie bag! Yep it's been a big week for spending :( Hopefully next week I'll be better.

How has your week been? 


  1. I really want to try the Chanel foundation, hopefully I can blag a sample first to see how it suits!

  2. Ahh I'm the same as Jimmi Lou, I hope I can get my hands on a sample or at least test it on my skin first because I do have sensitive skin. I prefer the Mat Lumiere to the Vita Lumiere or the other one (Pro Lumiere?) because I tend to get an oily tzone so I always go for a matte finish.
    I saw Fleur's Glossy Stain video when she released it too, they look amazing!

    1. I normally go for a matte finish but the last few months I've loved more luminous finishes. But normally like matte for winter.

  3. ohmygoodness, I rediscovered the Nude by Nature finishing veil too! Never knew what I was missing!

    1. Isn't it great! I love a lot of Nude By Nature products!

  4. I NEEEEEED to know how the liquid gold is, please do share in due time.

    So glad to hear you're doing better xx

    1. Thanks hun. Hopefully I'll do a review in the next week or two.

  5. I meant feeling better:)

    PS - I want that money tree too. Badly xx
