Weekly Loves #16 & #17

I hold my hands up. I've been a bad blogger. Lack of motivation had me a little down about most things including my little old blog, but I'm back and hopefully in full swing. After a week off work, I have discovered a few new favourite products and one of which I am very surprised about...

I'll start with the oldest of the bunch, the Clarins Graphic Expression Face & Blush Powder. The perfect hue for that natural peachy flush which goes with every single makeup look from natural to the most extreme. I have been wearing this every day for the past couple of weeks for that spring-time glow, despite the wet weather.
Essie Peach Daiquiri just screams summer. A vibrant pink/orange/red, it's a bit hard to describe but it is beautiful and it looks just as great on your fingers as it does your toes. 

Clarins Daily Energizer Cream is my current moisturizer of choice for the AM. A thick textured cream with a zesty orange scent. This provides just the right amount of hydration for my normal/combination skin, leaving it smooth and plump for the day ahead. 
Now for the one that surprised me... the Bourjois CC Cream. Originally purchased for my up and coming holiday, I have completely fallen for this product to the point where I now pick it above my beloved Double Wear and Silk Creme foundations for everyday wear. Usually an avid full-coverage kind of girl this evens out my complexion perfectly whilst adding a glow to my complexion. 

What products have surprised you lately?
