God I love eyeshadow. Cream, powder, sparkly, matte, it doesn’t matter, I love em all! Neutral colours are not the most exciting ones to look at, especially when you go to the likes of MAC or Inglot; I know my eye is instantly drawn to the bright colours, but let’s face it, for most of us, neutrals get the most love everyday.

With a bit of a lust-affair with L’Oreal fresh on my mind – the 6 Oil Nourish Extraordinary Oil worked wonders on my hair out in the sun this Summer – I thought I’d give the L’Oreal Professionnel Wet Domination* a go. It fits the bill as a hair styling product, one of my favourite product categories: they ease the job of a hairspray by holding the style, but work fantastically on their own for lazy ‘don’t give a damn’ days.

Over the past few days I’m going a wee bit crazy for beige nails. Yep full whack, nudest of nude talons. I’m not quite sure what happened.

My makeup this week has been simple – a light layer of Revlon Photoready BB Cream in Light, a dab of Almay Line Smoothing Concealer in Light/Medium, Marks & Spencer All-in-one Mascara, a touch of Maybelline Cheeky Glow in Fresh Coral on my apples (still haven’t managed to put that blush down) and then whatever lip product I feel like that day. Most of the week I’ve been reaching for a product that I hunted high and low for – Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Adore.

‘And the award for the cutest nail polish ever goes to…. Bourjois Bleu Water!’ Before this turns into a swatch-blog (even though it’s halfway there), I promise this will be the last nail polish rave for a while. As if I needed anymore, after all I only have 20 nails to paint at one time, but after seeing this gorgeously eye-catching shade on Nykaa.com I knew I had to have it.

My nails just can’t seem to make up their mind this Summer. They’ve gone from ‘vampy’ burgundy to barely-there beige, romantic hues of red to hints of purple – but now I’m back on the brown bandwagon with my newest Bobbi Brown purchase, Bittersweet, which I spoke about in my last ‘The Weekend Post’ (see here)…

Up for closer inspection today is Lakme’s Skin Gloss Reflection Serum or the ‘safe bet Serum choice’ as I’d like to call it. I purchased it last week and it’s since become a firm face favourite…
