Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

Real Techniques Expert Face Makeup Brush

Since falling in love with Estee Lauder's Double Wear foundation, I've been searching for the perfect brush to apply it with.  My beloved buffing brush just isn't working for me with this foundation, it seems better suited to either more liquid formulations or mineral powders.  I was enjoying using my Sigma F80 flat-topped kabuki, but it soaks up so much foundation! After reading a huge amount of awesome reviews of the Expert Face brush I took the plunge and ordered it, and as always with Real Techniques, I wasn't disappointed.

Dior Addict Lipstick in Bow

Dior Addict Pale Pink Glossy Lipstick in Bow Beauty

Ever since I was really young, my grandparents have lived in the South of France, meaning I don't get to see them often.  The packages my gran sends to us have become a bit of a novelty at home - in the past we've had a shower curtain (our shower has a door), a pair of men's boxer shorts (apparently they would make good work-out clothing) and lime green fishnet fingerless gloves (?!).  This time round she sent something sensible in the form of this gorgeous Dior lipstick.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Sunshine Perfume

Marc Jacobs Daisy Sunshine Summer Floral Fruity Perfume Fragrance

Its sort of a tradition on our yearly family holiday that we all pick up a new perfume duty-free at the airport.  After checking in we spend much longer than is reasonable spritzing every scent in sight until we find one that takes our fancy.  As soon as I'd had a whiff of this Limited Edition sunshine version of Marc Jacobs Daisy I was in love.

MAC Lipstick Collection

MAC Lipstick Collection

MAC Lipstick Collection Swatches
Ruby Woo, Viva Glam Nicki Minaj, Impassioned, Costa Chic, Coral Bliss

Although my collection of MAC lipsticks is a small one, I'm really happy with it - I have shades for all occasions and I regularly reach for all five options.  I love high street lip products, but there's nothing like the longevity, pigmentation and delicious scent of a MAC lipstick.
