The Week in VDM Posts: The Weekend Post #96: The Drugstore Pamper // My Makeup Menu: The Drugstore Edition // Which Foundation? // A Skincare Update // Spot of Bother // Black Coffee Edit // YSL Youth Liberator Foundation, a.k.a ‘That’ Foundation // Burberry Lip Mist in Oxblood // A Week in Eye Makeup 

Product Pick of the Week: YSL Youth Liberator Foundation in B30 – the closest thing I’ve found to Jemma Kidd Light as Air Foundation that’s currently on the market. Nuff said. There are the full deats here, but here’s the deal. A medium to full coverage foundation, that blends into the skin beautifully until an evened-out complexion is revealed without any tell-tale signs of its existence. It’s reigned my face base exclusively from Monday to Friday.

Blog Post of the Week: The rumours are true, Urban Decay have been squirrelling away on a Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette and British Beauty Blogger has all the deats. It looks a little pinker than their other offerings – interesting – though still pigmented with a selection of textures included. Launching December, I can’t lie – I’ll most probably be front of the queue.

Must-Watch of the Week: John Lewis Christmas Advert aside *wipes away a tear*, my favourite video posted in the last seven days has to go to Lily for her amazingly shot, beautifully edited ‘Everyday Makeup Routine’. Take two guesses at what makeup I’m wearing today…

Added to the Wishlist this Week: In my #44th instalment of ‘Things from Cult Beauty that I’m currently coveting’ I bring you their Therapie Jolie Bath Infusion (purchaseable here). From the makers of the best bathing product ever – a.k.a the Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts, I’m now on my fourth tub) – this is their uplifting version, billed as ‘blues be gone’ bath aid. It’s only a matter of time before this is tub-side with me…
