Weekly Loves #7

Another week, another round up of my favourite products to show you. This week I have been searching through my stash to discover some forgotten gems and some new loves...

Having recently brought the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation back into my life, it has won my heart all over again. With a luminous, yet semi-matte finish and a thick, yet light weight texture this foundation gives great coverage with only the tiniest amount. Less really is more when it comes to this foundation... 
The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders were a product I had disliked upon first use. However this week they have truly come to light in my eyes, bringing a brightening effect to my complexion whilst blurring over imperfections. Not to be used with a heavy hand, these powders set your makeup in place for the day and bring a natural glow on even the dullest of days.

Newest kid on the block, Pai Rosehip Oil has been taking center stage this week in my skincare line up. Being the only oil in my collection, this doesn't have a lot of competition but the immediate results of this have wowed me. With only 4-5 drops each evening my skin is looking brighter and more healthy as each day goes by.
Mac Plumful Lipstick has been my go to bold lip, when I don't want a bold lip. A sheer plum shade with slightly red undertones makes this the perfect choice for a subtle bold look during the winter season. It adds enough drama to your look so that you feel just that little bit more 'done up', without having to worry about the whole 'lipstick on your teeth' scenario. 

What did you love this week?


  1. Plumfull looks like a lovely colour, it's not one I've ever thought to look at but it's very pretty :)

  13. Roseship oil is something that I want to try in the near future. I am using bio oil now and really like it. Laura mercier foundation broke me out, although I really loved everything about it.
