Weekly Loves #1



Everybody loves a weekly blog segment, so I thought I'd give this one a go. I may be getting ahead of myself by titling it '#1' and setting myself up for failure, but only time will tell. For now, I've got some products to natter on about so let's get to it.

First off is a rediscovered foundation love. I used to wearRevlon Colorstay Foundation (Normal/Dry Skin) on a daily basis. However, I eventually fell out of love with it, as it was highlighting my dry skin more than I would have liked, and moved forward with my quest to find the perfect foundation (for reference, I am still on said quest.) I recently repurchased it as I was looking for something with a fuller coverage than my other foundations. I'm not sure whether this should be put down to the reformulation, the change in my skin condition or both; but suddenly this foundation is hitting all the right notes with me.

Next is a seriously hyped up product, in the form of Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. For the first time in what seems like years, I have cast aside my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in favour of something a bit more luxurious. Unfortunately for my bank balance, I much prefer the Nars. The shade Chantilly is a good match for my alabaster skin tone, so it's a good one for pale beauties. Though I think it may be intended for under the eyes, I personally find it a bit too drying for that area and much prefer it as a blemish concealer. It covers every imperfection but never looks cakey; I've definitely been converted. *bank card weeps in the corner*

I recently purchased a new toner, the Lush Tea Tree Water, as my skin was feeling red and spot ridden. Not great a few days before your sister's wedding. I had always used the Lush Eau Roma Water as my toner, but I think I may actually prefer this as I feel it does much more for my skin. I noticed a difference pretty quickly, with those pesky spots shrinking down within a couple of days. I love using this in the morning, especially, as the smell is just so refreshing!

Lastly, I've been loving the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. I have probably tried just about every eyeliner pen found in the aisles of Boots, but I think this may be my favourite thus far. The nib is long and thin, so it's the perfect shape for lining the lashes, even for eyeliner noobs like myself. The formula of this is on point: I wore it for the aforementioned wedding and found it totally intact for most of the day. I found some slight smudging on the outer corner at around the eight hour mark, which is pretty good on somebody who usually looks like a raccoon by hour two. Definitely one that lives up to its name!
