♥Weekly Favourites♥ Max Factor, Accessorize...

Hope you're having a lovely week ladies! Mine has been quite hectic to be honest. I just tend to get tired very easily for some reason. But now that I've gone back to Pilates with a lot of inspiration from Lil Miss.Rosh, I'm hoping to feel all energised soon.

Back to Beauty and all things vain, I've been religiously using these eye curlers by Max Factor(£8). Now, I have a natural curl in the lashes anyway so I don't quite mind missing out this step every morning. But also the fact that most lash curlers end up pinching my eye lids is something that makes me reluctant to using them. 

But these are great. They curl within a few seconds, have a scissor like handle for better control and have that perfect shape that fits almost all eyelashes. They look pretty sleek too in their matte black design. The drugstore Shu Uemura's I call them. 

I've also been digging into these two Accessorize Nail Varnishes(£4) lately. I have a gorgeous classic red and a neutral wearable taupe from their collection. I say they beat beat Barry M quality wise. They are much more workable, dry within seconds and are pretty chip resistant for a few days. 

I have come across this beauty from First Light Cosmetics(£7.99) and its seriously drool-worthy ladies. It is this gorgeous dewy tawny-rose colour called Haboob, which is categorized in the Bronzer category on the brands website. Well, I can see why as it can be used as both but not at the same time of course as otherwise you'll defy the purpose. Use it just below the cheekbones to contour or on the apple of the cheeks for that just-jogged flush. 

A huge pot it is that you will never need to repurchase in my opinion! Reminds me of Benefits Dallas or Throb to an extent. 

And now that we are talking about Bronzers, the Bronzing Block(£7) from Accessorize comes prettily boxed in a Benefit-inspired packaging and is a mix of two lovely subtle shades. It reminds me of MAC sculpting powders to quite an extent but for dummies. Why for dummies? Because you can't go wrong with this one. It will let you highlight and contour without two obvious beige and brown streaks. Plus, the finish is just right without being too matte or shimmer. 

I call it Sun kissed ♥

This is for all you ladies who just cannot let go of a heavy hand with bronzing products. This one will save you in the coming summer even if you wish to paint your body with it (not literally!).

What have you been loving this week?
