Product Pick of the Week:Â MAC Lipstick inÂ Angel – I dug this out as part of my Project: (A Bit) More Makeup and it’s barely left my lips since. A not too ‘in yer face’ pink, it coats the lips with a sugary shade – like a parred down version of my old favourite MAC’s Creme Cup. Perfect for no makeup, makeup days or times when I ramp it up a little on the eyes; I promise to not let it gather dust again.
Blog Post of the Week:Â A week into the grips of Nail Rehab and already I’m getting all thigh-rubbing and groany when I spot a lacquer-related post in my feed. The subject of my sweaty palmed affection this week? Into The Gloss’ ‘The Understated Mani’ – the nude nail Essie-centric roster. Come on Anna, you can do it…Â
Must-Watch of the Week:Â There’s only one thing I love more than watching monthly favourite videos on YouTube – watching HG status, favourite favourite videos. So when EstÃ©e swooped in with her ‘If All My Makeup Disappeared’ video, that was my morning made.
Added to the Wishlist this Week:Â So turns out I’m heading to New York next week. Say what!??Â I know, how have I been sitting on that one? I have no idea. Right now my wishlist is growing by the second – I’m gorging on Sephora, CVS and Ulta hauls on YouTube for inspiration and they are only adding more fuel to my US beauty buying fire. Suggestions of course are welcomed and can anyone pinpoint the best Sephora in New York? I’ll make it my first port of call.Â
