Currently Loving #1

A run down of my current favourites from the new releases and what I have been sporting for the past few weeks. 


Lancome Air De Teint Foundation
A new foundation release always excites me, however most don't deliver on their claims and usually just end up in my "general/not spectacular" foundation stash. This however does all the things it claims to. It provides a natural, light matte coverage whilst blurring any imperfections. It feels so fine on the skin and gives a soft-focus finish to the skin. One for normal-oily skins who love a light, matte base.

Hourglass Ambient Blush in Mood Exposure
The ambient blushes were on everyone's radar a few months ago and I was no exception. The blushes are finely milled, natural on the skin, incredibly pigmented and add a soft focus finish. I always knew that I would fall in love with these blushes but the one that made the biggest impression on me was the shade Mood Exposure. It was perhaps the least "me" shade of the range, a pink-nude with a hint of berry running through it. I am a peachy/coral blush girl through and through, I had this shade pegged down as my smoky eye blush however this has quickly become my every day blush. It is a perfect pink blush that is very neutral so provides a pretty, yet natural, flush. It is one that you truly can throw anything with it, a nude lip, a bold lip, a smoky eye or simply, nothing else at all.

L'Oreal L'xtraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in Molto Mauve
As you know, I am quite the admirer of these little glosses (see review here) and the story of this goes a little like the Hourglass blush. I expected this to be my least favourite shade of the bunch but it is the perfect every day shade. I usually stray away from brown toned nudes as they wash me out and add 15 years on me. This, is the exception. The shade is a mauve shade, it has some neutral brown tones alongside with some pink and a hint of berry. It is the perfect every day, natural shade that enhances my natural lip colour without looking like I am trying too hard. Worn with the Hourglass blush and it is the perfect pairing!

Essie Blanc
As Spring is fully in swing, the pastels and brights have been painted on my fingertips however my favourite alternative to the pastel trend is white nail polish. Call me crazy but I love the tippex nails look. White nails are chic, cool and strangely, make your hands look more tan/healthier. It is a perfect way to get into the pastel trend if you aren't a fan of powdery pinks or mints.
