Current Faves

Here are a few products that I have been enjoying recently, a few are newish and a couple I've rediscovered after shopping my stash...

From top left going clockwise:

Dior Rosy Nude 5 Couleurs- the best quint Dior have ever put out...probably. It's a beautiful mix of pale minks, peaches and golds. If you don't already own this one, you need to!

Mac Kelly Yum Yum- Such a gorgeous bright pink, not as blue as Candy Yum Yum.

Kevin Aucoin Candlelight highlighter- Very soft and buttery highlighter and has a lovely sheen that is super flattering on most people.

Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint- My new favourite summer foundation. It's perfect if you need a bit more coverage than a tinted moisturiser, plus it smells like frangipani which I just love!

Limecrime Velveteens- Shades Pink Velvet, Red Velvet and Suedeberry. I loved these when they came out and now I remember why. They are so incredibly long lasting and packed with pigment so you just need one swipe and you're done for the day. It's almost like a gloss that dries down matte. Beware though- you need to get your application right first time though!

Creme De La Mer Lip Balm- A really nice, hydrating balm (and so it should be for the price)  I tend to go for either this or the Sisley one.

Dolce & Gabbana Quad in Desert - A great everyday eyeshadow palette, beautiful matte nude shades that are super easy to blend.

Mac Pedro Lourenco Lipstick in Roxo- Deep Red/Burgundy shade. I like to use this as a slight stain by dabbing in the middle of the lips and blending out with fingers.

Chanel Gloss in Happy- looks fierce in the tube but goes on virtually sheer but adds a touch of brightness to the face.

Mac Casual Colour in Young at Heart- A lovely bright pink that can be used on lips or cheeks, perfect if you're in a hurry!
