The Week #11

The Week in Instagram @ViviannaMakeup: Lobster wins at Burger & Lobster // Lacquering up with Dior’s Le Vernis in #999 // A purse purchase from & Other Stories… // I wish more days could look a little more like this // Shimmering-up  courtesy of Illamasqua’s Pure Pigment in Ore // MUJI Madness coming up on the blog tomorrow // Matchy, matchy // Date night // Pondering polish decisions, post in process for Monday

Product Pick of the Week: Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Lip Pencil in Genre* – has been gracing my lips for most of the week. Not too glossy, too opaque or too dry, it’s just the perfect formula to slick on for fuss-free daytime wear. The colour too is one of those that you keep searching for reflective surfaces when you’re out and about to catch a glimpse of. So vain, but so true. 

Blog Post of the Week: Not strictly beauty related, but beautiful nonetheless. Nouvelle Daily’s ‘Flower Arranging Tips‘ has had me snipping away at my bouquets and tending to them like never before. I love a good bunch of fresh florals in the flat and will be putting these tips to good use when my next flower delivery arrives *hint hint*.

Must-Watch of the Week: I’ve spoken of my strong girl crush feelings for Mila Kunis before and have a special place in my heart for her smoked-out yet subtle eye look she often sports. Tanya Burr wraps up Mila’s look with one big YouTube tutorial bow and it’s pretty darn beautiful.

Added to the Wishlist: If I had a penny for every hour I’d spent on Cult Beauty this week then I’d need to indulge in another new purse. Aside from coveting 99% of the stock on the site, I’ve spent particularly long lengths of time hovering over the purchase button of STRANGEBEAUTIFUL’s Inept Laundress Volume if only for the tongue in cheek name.

    Love your Muji draws, they are such a great way to store things, hope you had a great week! xxx ♥

  • Storage video! Yay! Ok so I may have a bit of a problem…
    Is it just me or do the Muji drawers tend to entice you into wanting to apply makeup a lot more than is actually necessary. The amount of times I’ve had an hour spare and come out of it with a sparkly aqua blue smokey eye…

  • uh oh…I’m slowly building a bit of a Muji makeup shrine myself, and I’m sure your upcoming post is just gonna make me wanna rush out and buy even more!
