The Week in Instagram @ViviannaMakeup: Touch-up time // Homemade strawberries and cream ice lollies – and yes they were just as good as they sound // Essie Mademoiselle // Remember when we had summer last weekend? A BBQ did happen // A Hello Kitty Fisheye camera, what’s not to love? // My coffee-table-turned-desk-space // Pancakes at The Breakfast Club – swoon // Some Boots bought beauty booty for an upcoming video // This weekend’s makeup wardrobe

Product Pick of the Week: Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque – this week something bad happened. I had a reaction. After being a beauty junkie guinea pig for a fair few years I’ve never experienced such bumpy, angry skin. My cheeks felt stubbly – it wasn’t pleasant. So out this came to the rescue. I’ve been OD’ing on it slightly, slathering it on every other morning and slowly but surely it’s working its complexion whisprering magic. Now just to pin-point the root of my skin’s rage…. 

Blog Post of the Week: Not a blog post per se, but Never Underdressed – an online mag/blog hybrid from Shortlist Media who birthed Stylist Magazine – is a good ‘oh gawd how is it lunchtime already?’ read. 

Must-Watch of the Week: Despite loosing three hours yesterday to a gorging of May Favourites viewing (Estée’s, Kate’s, Lily’s, Fleur’s and Suzie’s were on my list, to name just a few), I’ve actually really been enjoying Sali Hughes’ YouTube channel. ‘In the Bathroom with Gizzi Erskine’ is a good ‘un.

Added to the Wishlist: This is an easy one. If I had a penny for each time I’ve perused the Sewlomax site this week, well I’d have enough for a Fudge. A purchase is inevitable (hasn’t Brad just ruined that word?), there’s just one question: the Embroidered Nail Polish Bag or the Embroidered Makeup Brushes Bag?

    i see you have the Chanel “les beiges”..i’m waiting “impatiently” for it to release here in the states!!! the girl at the counter showed it to a friend & i and we both want it! at the time we didn’t understand exactly what it was? we thought it was strictly a “bronzer”..she hadn’t explained it too well as we were talking about bronzers. i know now it can be a touch up powder OR you can get a darker one for warmth..can’t wait!! supposed to be out here 7/22…
