my beauty valentine...

Beauty bloggers, I know you get that feeling. You're eyes lock, your heart quickens, and your palms begin to sweat. You reach out, breathing heavily, and try to grasp for that beautiful shadow/blush/lipstick.
Once it hits your face, it's even better.
My Valentine this year, apart from zee fiance, is this bad boy:
my treasure, indeed
I have quite the collection of L'Oreal Infallible shadows, and find the texture to be incredibly smooth and buttery when applied. They come with an insert which keeps the loose powder compact, and I apply this shade, Sahara Treasure, with a dense synthetic brush all over the lid.
You can tell I wear it almost all of the time, right? But there is nothing nicer than seeing a well-loved product.
I wear MAC paint pot in Painterly under this, and find that it's deep enough to be a stand alone shade, but the way it glints champagne in certain lights makes it look like you've put in more effort than you actually have.
A neutral with a lot of sexy sheen!
Looks quite light here, the sun coming in from the window caught the champagne sheen.
I'm just head over heels for both the Infallible formula and this shade. I was so happy when Chris bought me some for Christmas, and this one was a random that he chose so it's even better! I'll be sharing my Infallible collection (yes I have enough for it to be a collection!) soon. I also have a FOTD coming up which features Sahara Treasure, so look out for that.

What is your beauty valentine?
A Chanel cherie? A Dior darling? A beautiful balm?
Tell me the one product that's making your heart beat fast!


  1. So pretty! I really need to try these out!

  2. I only have one of these so far... a matte purple one named Enigmatic Purple... I am thinking about buying more of these but we do not have that many over here where I live :)
    We have some really colorful ones but I am more drawn to neutral and murky ones atm :)
    I will buy some of the gold ones I think though :) That one is really really pretty :)

    1. Oh I'd like to try a matte one, will keep my eyes out. I am loving murky shades as well, and the gold is lovely

  3. Such a gorgeous color! One of my favorite products is Maybelline's One by One VolumExpress Waterproof Mascara. It just makes my lashes look fake, and I love it!

    1. I've been looking at that one, and hadn't heard anything about it yet! Thanks!

  4. I really love these little pots from L'Oreal! Can't believe how pigmented and how smooth they are!
    My beauty valentine..... Anything purple makes my heart beat faster :)

    1. Su I can't get over how soft and pigmented they are! I am only just getting into purple but I think it's a very appropriate valentine love <3

  5. Nancy they are truly amazing, do try them!
