Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum I've wanted to try this foundation for a long time given all the positive reviews I've read on it. Target was having a 40% off all Bourjois products sale so I decided to finally buy it. The main issue I have with this foundation is that there isn't a shade which really matches my skin. Vanille (52) is way too light, but Beige clair (53) is a bit too dark. I like the apricot scent and the semi-matte, glowy finish that it gives, but the coverage does seem on the sheer side and I'm not sure it lasts. I'll have to wear it a bit more to give a final verdict, but overall I think it's a really nice foundation. I'd be interested to compare it to Rimmel Wake Me Up which has been marketed similarly.
Essence nail polish in Grand-Plié in Black, part of the Ballerina Backstage collection. I've been buying more Essence nail polishes recently and was drawn to this black nail polish with a twist. This shade would be perfect for the colder months. Coppery orange glitter particles spice up a classic black base.
Revlon nail polish in Scandalous (761), renamed from Facets of Fuchsia. I've been patiently waiting for this to be released in Australia as every swatch I've seen has convinced me it's a must-have. I'll feature a post on it when I get down to wearing it, but for now, I'm just glad that it's finally mine.
Revlon nail polish in Popular (230), formally Starry Pink. At first I wasn't going to buy this, content with having found Scandalous, but the milky pale pink and silver hex glitter just looked so irresistibly pretty in the bottle that it had to be mine. It'd probably look better on fairer hands and it takes immense patience to layer on (above is 4 coats), but this nail polish is pure sweetness and innocence. I now need Whimsical to hit our shores ASAP, said to be a dupe of Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air and basically the baby blue version of Starry Pink, but with multicoloured glitter.
Bloom Sheer Colour Cream I already have this in Dewy (now discontinued), which is a lovely pale, shimmery pink that works as both a blush and highlight. All the colours in the range are covetable, but I was most enamoured of Coy, a gorgeous peachy pink. It was a toss up between Coy and another cream blush I've had my eye on for a while, Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in Soft Copper, which is more an earthy orange. I love the versatility and ease of cream products that can be used all over the face. Already I can tell that this is going to be a staple in my makeup bag.
