Weekly Loves #4

Weekly Loves #4
When I have a pretty busy week like I had this week, I usually stick to products that I know I love and that I know work for me, however some how all of my favourites from this week are relatively new to me...

I have had the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette in my possession since it was release last month and I have only just got around to using it. Normally a neutrals girl, I was worried that the rose tones of this palettes wouldn't work for me but I absolutely love them! They are like nothing else I own in my collection and I find it so easy to pick out colours that compliment one another to create a subtle smokey eye - my go to look! 
You probably know by now that I have large pores, and I hate them. So I will try pretty much anything to help hide them. I picked up the Estee Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizing Serum with by Boots points and I love the effect it has on my skin. This has quickly become my go to morning serum when I know that I will be facing a long day as it works to disguise my pores, along with some other trusting products.

Newest to my makeup stash is the Seventeen Phwoarr Paint. A concealer said to give some higher end brands a run for their money, this super pigmented concealer covers almost everything. I found it a little drying when used on top of my foundation so I have been using this under foundation to reduce the look of my very  dark circles. 
Last but not least is NARS Gaiety Blush. This is the oldest out of this selection of products as I have had it for a couple of months now, but it has really stood out to me this week. Very much a summer shade, this super bright pink blush has been brightening up my complexion throughout the week. With just the tiniest amount placed on the apples of my cheeks this blush has given my appearance a much more 'awake' look, despite my lack of sleeping. 

What products, that are new to you, have you been loving this week? 


  1. Basically in love of everything in this post, that NARS blush is stunning and I have been needing to try out the Seventeen Concealer. Great post!

  2. Some great picks here! Have been using the Idealist Serum for a few years now and it really has worked wonders on reducing the appearance of my pores :)

  4. That blusher seems to be calling my name... it looks so similar to sleek's pixie pink blush which i <3 could it be a possible dupe?
