The Week #6

The Week in Instagram @ViviannaMakeup: Tidy makeup drawer, tidy mind // Being a bookworm at Broadway Market // Five product face dunzo // Another addition to the semi-colour lipstick ranks, YSL Rouge Volupté Sheer // VDM at LFW. FTW  // The swoon-worthy Shu Uemura kit backstage at KTZ – post in progress // The best thing about Sundays // London, you beauty // How I spent my Valentines; lining my lipstick loves in the shape of a heart

Product Pick of the Week: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation – the closest I’ve found to a Jemma Kidd L.A.A dupe. After some dalliances with it before, this was the week that I finally ‘got’ it with this foundation. Dewy enough, yet matte enough, natural looking enough and long wearing enough to hold my short attention span when it comes to face bases.

Blog Post of the Week: It’s the post I’ve been crossing my fingers for every morning for while browsing my Bloglovin’ feed – Man Repeller’s Top Shelf on Into The Gloss. And she throws in an interview with her cutie-pie husband too. Simply amazeballs.

Must-Watch of the Week: Continuing on with the foundation theme, it’s got to be Pixiwoo’s Top Foundation Picks. Watch and prepare to add about five items at least to your wishlist. You have been warned. Speaking of wishlists…

Added to the Wishlist: After barging my way backstage at the KTZ show where Shu Uemura were doing the makeup (post coming today), I accidentally slipped out to the Head Makeup Artist that my battered and almost broken Shu Umerua Eyelash Curler was a good three years old yet I still whip it out each morning to do its thang. The look that was thrown back was one of pure disgust/horror. This week a purchase is happening.


  • Lovely pictures! I love how all the Shu Uemura colours look together! I also really want to try a YSL lipstick once, the packaging looks so gorgeous!
