This week im loving... #2

Hey Beauties,

So... I caved *hangs head in shame* not majorly though, just a couple of cheap lip products (I will review soon) and the stunning nail varnish above. It was 3 for 2 in Superdrug so I felt rude not to!!

1) I love NYC for a quick pick me up and this nail varnish has done exactly that - Its a beautiful mid purple berry shade - Wild With Passion - it's a great formula, just like all NYC nail varnishes are and is opaque in just two coats. All this for £1.49!!

2) While browsing the gift aisle in my local Boots I noticed this and the Scrub of Your Life were being sold in dinky travel sizes for just £2.50, I'm not sure if this has always been the case or not. I already own and love the Scrub of Your Life so I thought I'd try Flake Away out and as with all other Soap and Glory products it has not disappointed me! Smells yummy and leaves my skin lovely and smooth = happy girl!

3) Have you been missing Nathan in the past two series of Misfits? Yeah me too. In fact I've stopped watching in protest! So you cannot imagine my joy at discovering Robert Sheehan is now over at the BBC playing the gorgeous Billy in a new sitcom - Me and Mrs Jones, BBC1 Fridays at 9:30pm.

4) This foundation and I have never quite got on for a number of reasons; It's too greasy for me in the summer, I was wearing it in a shade 2 darker than I needed, its felt too thick and never lasted the whole day. But now... Oh were best friends! I'm not sure why, perhaps my skin has changed, getting the right shade definitely helped too! It offers me medium coverage and lasts up to 10 hours when used with a primer and powder. This is now my day to day foundation - I even repurchased it last week, something I only ever usually do with my holy grail, Revlon Colour Stay, for days I feel like I need more coverage. I now have all my foundation boxes ticked :)

What have you loved this week?

  1. I've been loving a foundation that I hadn't used in ages too - Bourjois Healthy Mix. I used to apply with a brush and it just looked all wrong but lately I've been applying with a damp beauty blender and it looks amazing!

    1. Im undecided on Healthy Mix - It smells great, brightens my skin up and goes on smoothly but I find it doesnt offer enough coverage, even out my skin tone or last very long. I have a half used bottle in my stash so perhaps one day I'l rediscover it and fall in love :) xx
