Loving this week - Benefit, MAC, Batiste, GOSH...

The tiny bottles of Benefit happiness that came along with Glamour...

Yup, just like ya'all, I got all three! Don't give me that stare. I got three travel sized Benefit products for £6, which otherwise I would have paid over £20 quid for. I know my math well. 

Also, I highly recommend you guys to get full sized versions of Posie Tint if you haven't yet. I tried it before and did not like it but funnily enough, I love it now. Skip High Beam, it ain't worth paying the full amount for.

The combination of MAC Face & Body Foundation and Select Cover Concealer. They blend and merge so well with one another, it's like a match made in heaven. 

I also get the 'You've got great skin' compliment as opposed to 'I like your make-up' when I wear them together. Puuurfect for the summer I say. 

Plus, look at how yellow they are, it makes me tear up with joy. And you're right, this is a brand new bottle of Face & Body. The 120ml did last me half a year though. 

The super huge 'hairspray' inspired bottle by Batiste. I liked it before and you know I am a die-hard fan but with this size I love it even more! The one I have has a lovely exotic coconut-like fragrance to it. 

I am not sure if they have changed their formula or not but I feel it gave me some volume around the crown area too. Now I never get that with Batiste, so kudos to the brand if they have actually made changes.

Quick cleanse + Volume = Cherry on the cake! 
Intense Hydrator by Joico from their K-Pak range of products. The range is especially formulated for dry and damaged hair and those adjectives are perfect to define my hair.

I only like to concentrate this on the lower ends of my hair, namely the split-ends and this works so well at mending them, if not totally vanishing them. It's a great quick fix to faking healthy hair if you're trying to avoid a trim.

Fierce colours on the eyes. This is GOSH's Eyeshadow Trio in Sunset and although the pink and purple here are mediocre and dupable, the coral is extraordinary! It is so intense yet goes on smoothly and gives an even finish.

Moreover, the colour is so 'in' as I've seen it on innumerable models on the runway. If you find it difficult to wear pinks or reds on the lids, then coral is your way to go.

Phew, I've been loving quite a bit recently haven't I? 

What did you enjoy using this week?

I haven't found a copy of Glamour yet but to be honest I haven't been looking very hard. I just want to get Benetint though.

Really want to try Select Cover Up, is it easy to blend using fingers?

FAB hauls...I love Gosh a lot. I need the Posietint too, so that would be another GlamourUK purchase for me.

I tried to get the Mac Face& body yesterday but the SA tried to convince me to buy the tinted moisturizer instead. I ended up with nothing, but probably going to return for the Face and body version...

@Tass - It is in fact best applied with fingers in my opinion. It blends well that way.

@birkinbagbeauty - You need to try MAC Face & Body at least once in your life imo :)

Ah I have such a struggle with liquid highlighters/blushes, i feel like it always ruins my makeup finish!

i do want to try the MAC foundation though.
