Loving Right Now

These are the things that are making me smile in the morning!

Face of Australia Loose Powder in Outback Translucent*
This is the everlasting finishing powder, I can't see myself using this up for years to come. Not sure what is so 'outback' about this translucent powder, perhaps FOA decided they needed to 'up the Aussie' with their products and flung the name in there. It's finely milled and never cakey, and the only thing I don't love about it is that it isn't great to travel with or have on you, but I am thinking of buying the pressed version to have in my handbag. Love that it is only $11.95 AUD and easy as pie to use.

Covergirl blush in True Plum
This was sent to me in a beauty swap with the beautiful Sun-Dried Lacquer (post here) and having never tried a Covergirl blush before, I was intrigued. I am infatuated with this shade, it is fool proof and has replaced NYX Peach for the top spot in my collection. It has the same cinnamon-esque scent that my other Covergirl powder products have, but isn't as strong. I love this shade, it is a beautiful pink with plum undertones that suits my pale skin tone, but also suits my Mum and sister who have darker and slightly olive-toned skin.

Thierry Mugler Angel EDT*
This fragrance sample is one of the most treasured scents in my collection (post here). I can't drag my nose away from my wrist when I wear it, and would best describe it as a warm and cozy fragrance with a very fiesty edge to it! It holds notes of patchouli, pink pepper, cedar, bergamot and red berries...but all I can smell is amazingness. I will be buying a big bottle of this when the sample runs out, no doubt about it.

 I'd love to see what products you are loving right now, and that are making you smile?

*These products were provided for consideration, but this had no effect on my love for them. Honesty, always.


  1. I love the translucent powder, I have dry skin so I don't usually need to set my foundation but I always put on some translucent powder ontop of my concealer otherwise it creases so quickly and this makes so much difference! I also think it's such great value for money - I doubt I would ever get through it. The bottle of that perfume is so cute!
    I love the idea of this post, I may knock one up tonight!

  2. OMG I LOVE THEIRRY MUGLER FRAGRANCES SO MUCH! So much in fact I spelt his name wrong. Many lols.

  3. Angel is such a yummy gourmand classic. I have an empty bottle waiting to be refilled - must do!!!

  4. The FOA translucent powder is a HG of mine. Love it. (:

  5. I own one thing by Covergirl... an eye shadow trio that I got in a swap and I love it :) such an amazing pigmentation :) I love the shade of that blush :)

  6. I have that translucent powder as well it's the best and I can see it lasting forever. I'm intrigued by that Cover Girl blush, I love Cover Girl mascara but don't think I've ever tried any of their colour cosmetics before.
