Been loving this week

I've been in love with the two Givenchy products that I got. They are so luxurious to use and are superb in quality. The liquid liner is like no other and the colour is simply stunning. I am wearing that below with some Urban Decay Eye Liner in Zero in the waterline.

Also, can you see a hint of airbrushed pink effect on the lids? Well that's the Givenchy blush in Le Prisme - Timid Rose. Because it's so mild, it gives me a chance to wear pink on the eyes without overdoing it, plus I love the non-powdery wash of colour it provides - beautiful!

Another obsession of mine is with the No 7 Smudge brush. I don't owe a stiff pencil brush yet and am loving this since the time I got my hands on it. Its perfect for placing colour on the lower lash line, to draw a precise crease or to smoke out your eye shadows. It reminds me of the MAC 219 to quite an extent, although the MAC one has a more sharper edge.

I am smitten by the No 7 bug aint I?

And saving the best for last, we have the Too Faced Shadow Insurance. You see it right, I ditched the oh so popular primer potion from Urban Decay for this baby and I am so glad I did! With the primer potion, my shadows faded and creased after 5 hours and cream shadows were a nightmare to apply and blend.

The Shadow Insuranace on the other hand is a dream to apply, makes blending twice as easy and my cream shadows apply so well too. I am shocked to see my shadows intact after an entire day with this, so definitely invest your money in this girls.

What have you been loving this week?

I was thinking of buying of Shadow Insurance after my UDPP runs out.

This week I've been loving IQQU's sunscreen. Doubles up as a face primer. xx

It's good to know that the Too Faced lash insurance is better than UDPP - since the packaging of UDPP is so wasteful! I was given a NARS sample primer to try - but once that finishes, I'll probably by the Too Faced primer.

I've been loving my Covergirl/Olay cream blush - it applies like a dream - and looks so natural - I've been told that my skin glows - without ppl realizing that I've been wearing blush.

I've recently ditched UDPP in favor for shadow insurance and I love it - it's a lot lighter product than UDPP but keeps the shadow in place longer, love it!! xx
