Friday's Favourites

Friday 31 August 2012

I can't believe it's the end of August already! I feel like every week just goes by quicker and quicker. 

Here's whats been rocking my world lately...

What I'm Wearing...

I've been trying to use up my foundations as I have quite a few opened up. I've nearly finished my Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation (I only have a drop or two left) and my Rimmel Wake Me Foundation. Since it's been quite sunny in Sydney, I've started to want a more fresh faced look and these foundations fit the bill. 

Mascara is something that I've struggle to find a great one. Too many smudge, flake, run or don't last. I normally throw them out after a few weeks, as bad mascara is my pet peeve. I've started this week using Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping Mascara. I've really liked it and find that it helps to make my lashes look thicker and longer. While it hasn't become my holy grail mascara, it's something I would repurchase.

My skin has freaked out in the last few days with redness, so I've added the L'Oreal Youth Code Luminosity Extraordinary Serum back into my routine. I was using rosehip oil as a serum, but felt like I needed more of a punch to help deal with the redness and pigmentation. I only use it in the day as I'm still using the Alpha H kit. 

I adore my Luk Beautifood Lip Nourish that I got in my August Bellabox. It's a perfect everyday lip product. 

Things I'm lusting for...

There's been nothing that I've lusted after, but when I did pass Chanel the other day I did think "One day I will buy something from you!" As great as Chanel make up is, I want a quilted tote more than their make up!

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

Michaela from Lather Rinse Repeat tried out the new Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Colour. It looks fantastic!! I really wished that I had more time to do my nails, but I get frustrated with the "paint and wait." I get even more frustrated when I don't wait long enough and smudge it! 

Kimmi from The Plastic Diaries has a great haul from the Spa & Beauty Expo. I'm super jealous of her Rae Morris brush and Lord & Berry Lipsticks. I've heard great things about the L&B lipsticks from a lot of bloggers. 

I'm one of those weird people that love hearing about bloggers buying regrets just as much as their holy grail products. Over at Shopping Intervention the much hyped about Bioderma Crealine H20 just wasn't worth the hype. Do you agree with her?

I adore this eye look from The Made Up Maiden. While it's much to bright for boring old "brown nude eye everyday" me, I think she looks beautiful and wish I was as daring as her! 

On My Mind...

My hubby and I want to buy a particular house but the real estate agent is terrible. He never gets back to us and even though we've told him we want to put in an offer multiple times, he still hasn't done anything about it. WORST REAL ESTATE AGENT EVER!!! Also he asked if we were still interested in the house and emailed us "Get back to me." Not even a please. His rudeness and inability to reply to emails is driving me insane. If I didn't want the house as much as I do, I would have just told him to stick it!! 

Bad customer is so unbelievably frustrating. 

What is your favourite of the week? 


  1. I just bought Garnier's new BB cream (the one for combination/oily skin) today and, although I've only used it once, it's doing to be a favourite for sure! I'm already in love with it, which surprised me given I hated the original!

    1. I've heard good things about it, but haven't tried it yet. I'm trying to resist until I've gone through at least 1 more foundation/TM/BB cream

  2. Are the Rimmel Wake Me Up and Bourjois Healthy Mix similar? I have been loving Healthy Mix at the moment :)

    1. They are and they aren't (So helpful aren't I haha). I find Wake Me Up more glowy and with a bit less coverage. I'm planning on doing a post on them soon

  3. Thank you so much for the mention, doll! FWIW, I don't think a brown, nude eye has to be boring! ;)

  4. Lately all I do is to cleanse in the morning, apply moisturiser, apply sunscreen and then the Australis tinted moisturiser. It's such a good skin perfector!

    PS - I hear you on the bad agents, my boyfriend's brother bought a house in JUNE and it only settled yesterday because the other side took forever... Very frustrating but at least it's all been done now:) Xx
