Product Pick of the Week:Â Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette – there’s a whole debate over whether UD really needed to extend their best-selling line for a third time but I really like it. I mused about it here but this week I’ve been getting a fair amount of use from it – the matte shades especially; Nooner and Limit are the usual suspects when it comes to an easy peasy eye look. It’s now available to buy online from House of Fraser (though it appears only fleetingly to be in stock) and keep an eye out a post next week dedicated to my three favourite ways to fashion it.
Blog Post of the Week:Â XOVain’s ‘Which Lip Stain Holds Up Best Through Some Serious Frenching’ manages to sum up in one post everything that is just so darn good about that website, while answering the serious question posed. Notes taken. Perhaps I should indulge in some research of my own?
Must-Watch of the Week: ‘YouTube’s Rewind 2013′ is in one word, epic. However for the past 24 hours I’ve had the 17 videos that BeyoncÃ© delivered to my iTunes library on repeat. I bow down to you Bey - or is it YoncÃ© now?Â
Added to the Wishlist this Week:Â I’ll let you in on a little secret. For the past few weeks I reckon for about 90% of the time I’ve been rocking the Red Carpet Manicure formula on my talons for the simple fact that I’m lazy and a mani job with this lasts around 10 days before it needs tending to. It’s fab. My colour of choice is ‘I Own The Runway’, a blackened plum but I’m open to more shade suggestions to add to the wishlist. Anyone?
