Must-Watch of the Week: After a scroll through many a beauty blog I stumbled upon Essie Button, a Canadian blogger+vlogger living in London. Her Drugstore Makeup Starter Kit is fantastic if you're wanting to update your makeup bag with some affordable beauty bits. Even if you're just streamlining your makeup collection or wanting to start a collection this is worth a watch. She mentions a few of my drugstore favourites like the Real Techniques brushes and some other cult classics.
Product of the Week: This week I used a sample of Dermalogica Skin Refining Masque and in the thirty or so minutes it was on my face it definitely worked some magic. The clay mask deep-cleanses and it is great for problematic skin. I had some rather angry spots on my chin and they definitely weren't as red or sore after I took this off. Two days later and they are virtually gone. This mask also helps with shine-control as well but you'd need to use this a few times to see results with that. The down side with this though is that it'll require some penny saving, or canned meals for a month maybe..
Must-Read of the Week: Lauren's outfit post and musings on what she sees on her face. This post is pretty self explanatory so just click the link to read it. It is really cleverly written not to mention I love this outfit accompanying this post. Lauren, you are one talented girl x.
Added to the Wishlist: The last few days have been very Benefit-centred given their launch in New Zealand yesterday. On Wednesday night I got to have a play with a lot of their products and their now well-thumbed catalogue has a few pages marked with wishlist annotations. One product I am eager to get my hands on though is Posietint, a pink-tinted lip and cheek stain. This has been on my hand a good six hours since I swatched it and it has barely faded. It is long lasting, beautiful stuff. Get. In. My. Life.
