Current Favourites

Time to share my current beauty loves with you all!
Illamasqua Blush in Sophie*
 This coral shade has golden shimmer in it which just adds a glow to the skin, without making my cheeks look like chubby glitter pillows! I love the shimmer blushes from Illamasqua, so far they've only made a few shades in the shimmer formula but wow they like to do it right.
Dior Amber Diamond
I think everyone in the beauty world knows of this beauty! I love the way this blends so easily into the cheekbones, and makes me look awake in a natural way. I love to pair this with Sophie and the Clinique bronzer to create a pretty, sunny look, even on my fair bear face.
Victoria's Secret Amber Romance Body Lotion
I bought this in the airport on the way back from IMATS and BBU, and I am addicted to the scent. I don't think I've tried anything with amber before, and I suspect I may be a fan. The bottle is shimmery and pretty, and I can't wait to keep this on my desk when I set up my new makeup area.
Clinique Superbalanced Bronzer*
Usually not one for bronzer, I've been dusting this on almost every day for the past couple of weeks! I like that it suits my pale complexion, but is also buildable so would work for medium complexions as well. I get a real thrill when I shave off some of this sunshine in a pot, it actually makes me look forward to doing my makeup a little bit more.
Urban Decay Naked Palette
I've had this for an age, and go through stages where I use it non-stop and lately, that has been the trend. My favourites shadows from it are (obviously) Virgin, which I use to highlight, and Sin, which I either use all over or in my inner corner. Smog, Darkhorse and Toasted are other favourites that I've been using a heap lately.
Laura Mercier Eye & Cheek Palette
Have been obsessed with the African Violet eyeshadow from this palette, but every shade has graced my lids of late. Black Plum is a most beautiful colour for a wee smoky eye of an evening.
What are your current favourites?
Do you wear makeup every day, or just on special occasions?
*Marked products were provided, but are honest favourites of mine right now.


  1. I havent tried the bronzer, I love the Clinique superbalanced powder, Its super effective at keeping shine at bay, and I love that you grind just the amount of powder you need.

  2. I'm loving NYX Champagne and Caviar, which is like budget Naked. I'm looking to invest in a Naked palette once it's finished though!

  3. Is that the Laura Mercier palette you got in Sydney? seriously kicking myself I didn't just get it...

  4. The Sophie blush is so pretty! I just love Illamasqua's blushes~

  5. Good stuff! I'm seriously coveting that Laura Mercier palette. And it's been a while since I've been in a Victoria's Secret. Must give the lotion a sniff. :)

  6. The Dior looks good.. although.. I wouldn't know how to use it!

  7. Illamasqua Sophie looks gorgeous! Great favourites!

  8. I love the Laura Mercier palette!! Also, I've been seriously loving my Missha lipstick crayons lately :)

  9. As much as I love pictures of makeup when they are all new an pristine, there is a special place in my heart for pics of makeup that are dented, used, beaten up and obviously LOVED :)

  10. I love the Amber Diamond and I'm really interested in that bronzer! I have the powder version but I never wear powder so it sits up the back of my drawer!
