I’m not sure there is any actual weekly pattern to these posts, I guess structuring my blog isn’t my strongest point!  But these are the products that I have been loving most lately, most of which have probably popped up on here before at some point. 
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation: Last week I had a bad breakout of spots all of a sudden, which wasn’t much fun and the worst part is not knowing what caused it.  I have been using Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation recently, it is an old favourite of mine but my breakout made me think that my skin should probably have a little more breathing space to help it clear.  Rimmel Match Perfection provides good coverage but also feels light on the skin, so it feels less like it is clogging the pores etc., and since the weather has been a little warmer lately a slightly lighter base is a good idea.  I also love the healthy dewy (not greasy!) finish that this base gives, matte finishes are great but I like a little more of a glow for springtime! 
Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic:  I love this shade, and it has been my go-to lately, the matte finish is perfect for day-to-night wear and it lasts a god few hours too.
Balance Me Facial Oil: This lay forgotten in a drawer for a long time, until I rediscovered it a few days ago!  I love using it to give my skin some much needed moisture, and it leaves it feeling so so soft and plump.  It is easy to assume that a breakout means that your skin doesn’t needed any moisture, but it is quite the opposite because drinking more water and moisturising well helps clear your skin problems up. 
Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Green Berry: I love this colour so much!  It is a bright turquoise shade from my favourite nail polish brand, the gel effect is amazing: super shiny and unbeatable pigmentation.  One coat is enough to give your nail an opaque covering of colour, and the colour is perfect for summer.
Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder:  I have been using this for a couple of months now, and it really is a lifesaver when it comes to brightening under my eyes – especially on my frequent early starts.  I apply it with a setting brush after using concealer, it seals it and the finely milled powder brightens the area and keeps it in place all day.  I can’t recommend this enough if like me you suffer with dark circles! 
Do you like any of these products?  What have you been loving this week? xx
