Springtime selection

28.4.14

Spring has sprung!  My skin doesn't feel (as) dry anymore, deep lipsticks feel too *done* and I'm leaning towards a less bronzed, more "English rose" kinda complexion.  Here's what's been in circulation over the last few weeks....

Diorskin Nude BB Creme
Remember when this came out and everyone went nuts?  I don't find it long-lasting enough for everyday wear, but it's the perfect weekend, fresh base.  A little pricey though.

Boss Orange 
This is probably the lightest, fruitiest, girliest perfume in my collection.  I can't describe fragrances to save my life, but trust me.  It's a really nice scent for the warmer months.

Essie Fiji
Long heralded as a blogger favourite, I picked this up on one of my many trips to take advantage of Boots' 3 for 2 offer.  It's the perfect, palest pink that makes a perfect neutral, grown up mani.  For the first time in ages I've taken it off only to reapply straight away.  That's a testament to how good this shade is.

MAC Azalea Blossom
Let's start with an apology.  This was limited edition, so chances are you won't be able to get hold of it anymore.  But look how pretty!  I favour more blue-toned pink blushes this time of year, and this one ticks all the boxes.

Lancome Rouge in Love in 159B
The Rouge in Loves are my favourite formula of lipstick ever.  This is a nice reddy-pink shade that tides me over nicely until I can wear my orange-red hue in summer.  They're relatively matte, without feeling drying, and seriously long lasting, making them the perfect low-maintenance yet high impact lipstick to wear without worrying about up-keep.

 Topshop Cream to Powder Blush in Flush
Apologies for the dirty packaging but let's keep it real, no-one's Topshop make up looks neat once used, right?  I could have cleaned it but....meh, it'll only mess up again in the morning!  I've probably got all of the cream to powder formula blushers Topshop offer, and whilst the coral tone of Head over Heels is my all time favourite, I can't help but gravitate to the more peachy-pinkness of Flush for spring.

MUA Power Pout in Justify
Whilst Revlon Kissable Balm Stains, Matte Balms and Lacquer Balms are seemingly taking over the world, MUA's offerings are seriously overlooked.  They're long lasting, very pigmented, glossy and moisturising plus cheap to boot.  At £3 there's no excuse not to buy them all.

Do you agree with me on any of these?  What are your alternatives?

  1. I love the Dior BB cream. I'm too lazy to bother with foundation, so the BB cream is a great alternative for me.
