Weekly Loves #3



Another week, another round of favourites. Some of these are newer additions, some are long term favourites that are staples in my daily routine. 

First is a blush I have been consistently loving for months. Thought it was time it got a mention! I picked up the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Fearless as soon as they became available on QVC UK back in March and have hardly put it down since. I love me some blush and, though I try to make use of all the blushes in my collection, this is the one I always seem to come back to. This warm pink shade is perfect for perking up the face- great for when I'm looking a bit pasty (which is constantly). The formula is great- blendable and lasts forever. I did also try out the shade Blissful and wasn't as keen, but Fearless? It's a winner. 

Another long standing favourite is the Benefit Gimme Brow,which I have been using pretty much every day since I bought it a couple of months back. It may just be a tinted brow gel, but it's a damn good one. I always get compliments on my brows when I use this. I have the Medium/ Deep shade, which is perfect for my dark hair. It's great for using over brow powders to set them, but it also works brilliantly on its own for lazy makeup days. The brush is awesome, as it's small enough to coat every hair in product. It's a little on the pricy side but, if you're willing to splurge on it, I'd say it's totally worth it. 

I may have already mentioned that my skin has been playing havoc this week. So many planets on my face it's like a model of the solar system. Luckily for me, this doesn't happen a lot but when it does, I always reach for Lush Grease Lightning. I think you can also use it spread all over the face, but I prefer it as a targeted spot treatment. It doesn't work miracles, it won't make them disappear like magic. However, it does help to reduce the size of them without drying out the skin around it. It really helps at speeding up the process, especially with those painful under the skin spots. The fact that the name makes me burst into song every time I hear it is just a bonus. (Aaaand now it's in your head. Grease lightning, go, grease lightning!) 

Last up is a much more budget friendly pick. I've been feeling a bit lazy this week with my makeup, so for lipstick I've been loving the Maybelline Baby Lips Electro in Pink Shock. I picked this up on a whim a couple of weeks ago- those 'New!' signs get me every time. I wouldn't say I'm a big fan of the original Baby Lips, but this one I've really been liking. I love the bright pink shade and the colour pay off is surprisingly good for a balm, it seems to be better than that of the original Baby Lips. It's a really nice, everyday lip colour and I'm very tempted to pick up some more shades...
 
Have you tried any of these?
