The Week #12

The Week in Instagram @ViviannaMakeup: My current beauty-centric reading list // Scrabble and an SOS mani on a Sunday night // The pages of last month’s Allure are now extremely well thumbed // Scouting out my favourite beauty spots in London for tomorrow’s post // Clinique’s Corker of a Cherry Red, Happy Heart – out May // Warpaint for the week // My favourite picture of Lily and I // The tale of the terrifying sheet mask // Resisting the urge to splurge at Le Labo

Product Pick of the Week: Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil* – is my current face oil of choice. My skin is lapping the stuff up. No nasties, a layman-friendly ingredient list and complete with all the relevant organic certifying paperwork. Just 2-3 drops applied in the evening post toner pre-moisturiser, although it’s barely needed and peachy looking skin is mine by morning. Sweeeet.

Blog Post of the Week: A statement of makeup simplicity is something I can always get behind so it was nice this week to see a stripped back blog post amongst my brimming bloglovin’ feed. I thoroughly enjoyed Lily’s look at an ‘Introduction to Beauty‘, a no-nonsence approach to your makeup bag landscape.

Must-Watch of the Week: Cara Delevigne divulges the contents of her handbag and coincidently lets the world in on her on-the-go beauty stash. Littered with CHANEL, Burberry, Anastasia Beverly Hill Brows, an unconfirmed spotting of a set of Tweezermans and a dirty face wipe; Delevigne-ers may wish to take notes.

Added to the Wishlist: For once a purse-friendly purchase has been catching my eye – huzzahRimmel’s Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Sticks. I’ve been coveting a creamy textured eye at the moment, nothing beats their slick-on, smudge and go application and with an array of nudes on offer, next time I’m in Boots I think one may just accidentally slip into my basket.

    I love these kind of posts! That picture of you and Lily is so cute 🙂


  • Do you like the Pai oil more than the midnight recovery concentrate from Kielh’s? Because I’m aiming to buy the Kielh’s one.
