Ah, another of my mo irregularly scheduled posts - my 'weekly' favourites!  I have been going crazy for pink nude shades lately, on my face as well as my lips, so this week's favourites reflect that.  

Fist up is Essie nail polish in muchi muchi, a cute pale pink shade that I've loved wearing to work lately.  I don't own too many Essie polishes due to my undying love for Barry M, but I love this colour and the bottle is already almost half empty. 

Next is a lipgloss in the form of Tanya Burr's Aurora, which is a gorgeous dusky pink that adds a nice natural rosy shine to my lips.  The applicator on these lip glosses is the perfect shape to coat your lips in, I own two other shades in the range and they are definitely my new favourites!

Another lip product that's made it's way into my favourites is my new Maybelline ColorSensation lipstick in Tantalising Taupe, from the Stripped Nudes collection.  The formula of  these lipsticks are, in my opinion, superior to most other drugstore lipsticks - they are easily on the same level quality wise as some high end counterparts and for only a fraction of the price!  The colour payoff (ugh dat phrase!) is excellent, I can see myself investing in this entire collection eventually!  This shade looks particularly good with a smokey eye, and has a dewy sheen finish.  

Lastly there is an old favourite that I have rediscovered, the beautiful Autograph Highlighting powder. This is just so pretty to look at, and I have been sweeping it over my cheeks and lightly down my nose - where ever would usually catch the light - and the result is fantastic.  This is a product that would probably go unnoticed my many because it is a lesser talked about brand in terms of make up, but I cannot recommend it enough, it's lovely! 

Have you tried any of these products?  What have you been loving this week? xx

  2. I got a lipgloss from Tanya Burr's collection but I hated the colour. I loved the texture though so I think I'll try another one!
