You could say I'm having a bit of a fling with Spring right now. Make up wise that is. Something about the pastels and dewy bases draw me in like a magpie to a milk bottle so it's not surprising I have several new additions I can't wait to show you! First up, a foundation that has finally taken over my two year love affair with Bourjois Healthy Mix and is pretty much complexion perfection- L'oreal Paris True Match. An incredibly light and runny foundation that melts into the skin instantly when applied with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, setting to a beautiful satin finish- glowy whilst still incredibly skin like with a very good medium coverage. It also stays in tact throughout my long working days and 'N2 Vanilla', as the name suggests, is a true match for my Spring skin. At a reasonable £9.99 this nicely packaged bottle has totally blown me away and even curbed my craving for Nars Sheer Glow. Praise indeed.
Next we have a repurchase that also blows me away each time I wear it; Topshop 'Whimsical' Lipstick. As much as I'm a sucker for a buttery balm this blue skied time of year, I'm also partial to a good Spring matte and luckily the velvety formula of this lipstick doesn't have the drying downside. Even though I do find myself topping this up a fair amount, 'Whimsical' is totally worth it for the colour which I really can't get enough of- a stunning pigmented peachy pink that instantly brightens the complexion and compliments all manner of makeup looks. At just £8 and with that kooky packaging perk, I don't see myself falling out of love with this anytime soon.
A brand new release for SS14 that I couldn't help but get my mitts on comes in the form of Essie 'Fashion Playground'. I wanted to grow my Essie polish collection a bit more and thought I'd go for this minty green shade instead of the classic 'Mint Candy Apple'. 'Fashion Playground' is a less blue very true mint green with a milky pastel tone and slight shimmer. I've got to say I actually might reserve this for more autumnal leafy green moments later in the year as it's just not quite bright and cool toned enough to give me that tan inducing flattering off white effect I'm after, but it's a pretty polish none the less. And it does look ever so lovely displayed on a muji drawer...
