Product Pick of the Week: Caudalie Divine Legs – you’ve heard the hype and I can hand on my heart say it is truly deserved. Oh wow. This is like the grown-up version of my ol’ fave Rimmel Sunshimmer. A tinted lotion that when applied to the legs (or all over as I’ve been using it) imparts the most perfect sunkissed glow, no orange tones to be seen or stickiness, just a hint of olivey shimmer that perfects and makes short/skirt/dress wearing that little bit easier.

Blog Post of the Week: Beautezine’s swatches of Le Blush Creme de CHANEL in Présage are stunning. Read and weep at how much you’ll be dropping at the CHANEL counter when these launch.

Must-Watch of the Week: I just have to give a nod to Gemma’s impeccably shot and edited OOTD, I applauded at the end – so well put together. Other videos on my watch-list have been Space NK’s back catalogue of how-to films. Particularly this ‘Beat the Heat: Smudge Resistant Makeup’ one, and please can I have skin like the model?!

Added to the Wishlist: When news of the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector being released in pressed powder form spread on Twitter I may have let out a little squeal. Not that I’m even a powder gal, but anything BECCA turn their talents to is awesome; I’m picturing something along the lines of the Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder but in multiple shades. Oh I’m salivating at the thought.
