The Week #8

The Week in Instagram @ViviannaMakeup: Reading time // My new mid-length locks styling companion // The anti-red nose essentials // Spexing it up with Lily at a preview for Oz The Great and Powerful // Fingertip foundations courtesy of Estée Lauder // Three new shades of Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors, due to land in May. My lipgloss prayers have been answered // I finally posted my cookie monster recipe // Lemming for the Paris-life still // Chop, chop, chop

Product Pick of the Week: Oribe Dry Texturising Spray – now my mop’s lighter I have a feeling this is going to become my best mate in a can. A little bit volumising, a little bit drying, it just gives hair that ‘I don’t care’ texture that I really do care about.

Blog Post of the Week: I’ve become rather fond of Beautezine over the past weeks. With my newsfeed chocker of their punchy and picture perfect reviews, I find myself losing a good half an hour of my day (at least) browsing. Their round-up of Butter London’s Sweetie Shop Collection in particular has got my fingertips itching to open my purse strings.

Must-Watch of the Week: Charlotte Tilbury recreating the Rihanna V Magazine cover shoot makeup look. Yup, it’s ah-mazing. That is all.

Added to the Wishlist: I’ve had to control two ‘get in my basket now’ urges for this product already in the past week, but after my recent love-in with Oribe I fancy adding their Aprés Beach Spray into my haircare harem. More wave-teasing than their other offerings, but still with the same va-va-voom, it sounds right up my street.

    The apres beach spray is my holy grail hairspray – it creates those perfect beachy waves with alot of texture and volume perfection in a can (except the price makes me shudder) you should definitely try it!!! Xx
