This Week I've Been Wearing...#1

Greetings beautiful people!

Photobucket [MAC Strobe Cream, BIOTEN Cleansing Gel, MAC blush in Daft Pink(LE), Essie nail varnish in Berry Hard, Rimmel lipstick by Kate Moss in 16, Estee Lauder High Gloss in 11 Blush, MAC e/s palette in Smoke & Mirrors(LE)]

Firstly, I want to apologize for being absent from blogger these past few weeks. Personal problems have come in the way, add uni too, so I was struggling a bit. Thank God things are getting much better now and I feel much happier and healthier, so blogging is on full swing!

I was reading one of my favourite blogs, ghostparties when I saw this cool feature called "This week I've been wearing" and liked it so much, I stole the idea :)

This week I've been trying the new cleanser by Bioten and I've been pleased, thus far. I absolutely loved the make up wipes from the Quince range(hence why I bought 4 packs of them) and this product is no different! It's refreshing, smells AMAZING and leaves my face sqeaky clean. It also leaves a tingly feeling afterwards but I don't mind, whatsoever.

MAC's Strobe cream has once again come out in the spotlight! This product has got to be one of my favourite hightlighters, if not THE favourite! Its shimmer is so subtle, yet catches the light so beautifully...a MUST-HAVE! I mostly mix this with my foundation as it leaves a healthy, fresh and glowy effect. I'm soon running out of this so I guess I'm stocking up on Christmas?

As you may have noticed by now I much prefer lipsticks to lipglosses but this week, I've rediscovered my love for Estee Lauder's High Gloss in 11 Blush. It's such a 'chic' colour, almost like a bronzy rosy pink(look what I came up with ^_^). It's fairly pigmented but not too much, which makes it perfect for daytime!

Now, lipstick wise(of course), I recently got Rimmel by Kate Moss' lipstick in 16 and I WISH I'd gotten it sooner! It's such a pretty yellow pinky coral, I'm seriously in love. It's very smooth and hydrating for a lipstick and you can lightly dab it on your lips for daytime wear or apply it full on for a night look! Now I'm looking forward to being a bit more tanned, as I think this baby will look even MORE gorgeous!

There's one thing I was a bit hesitant to use this week, even though I used it pretty much everyday, and that's because I don't want to run out, is possible my all time favourite blush. Ever. AND it's limited edition. I'm talking about MAC's blush in Daft Pink of course. It was released a few years ago and have loved it ever since. It's simply beautiful. It's got the kind of shimmer I like and gives the most beautiful glow(if you don't like shimmer, this is a big no-no). The pigmentation for me is great as well, because it does have pay off, but you can work it into your skin as much as you like. The thing I loathe about some blushes, is when they don't give ANY colour or when they're too pigmented and you are scared you're gonna mess up in case you've put too much on your brush. But this...this is perfect. I'm seriously in love. <3

As far as nails go, I went on full autumn mode this week and painted my nails with Essie's Berry Hard. It is a beautiful, rich berry colour that goes pretty much with every piece of clothing I own(EVEN gym clothes). It definitely suits the atmosphere due to the chilly days we've had here this week.

Why, of course, another MAC product! But seriously, I didn't realise how truly beautiful this palette(in Smoke & Mirrors) was up until now. I'm going to make a review soon, showing you all close-ups and stuff but for now limit yourselves to this picture, pretty please :) It's got beautiful neutral shades from highlighters to metallics to dark browns and it's definitely a product I'll be reaching for more often, this winter.

So this is it for thise week's products girls!
