01 Nude Velvet* / 02 Healthy Glow* / 03 Rose Tender* / 04 Sweet Cherry*
Im a bit of a newbie to cream blushers, having tried many, I always came to the conclusion they made my oily skin look even greasier. That was until I started applying them with a stippling brush. I had always used the no fuss finger method which I always failed at. Stippling the cream blush leaves a more even, natural and smooth finish and once set with some powder, looks rather dewy and fresh. It's so much more easier too! I was excited to receive these new cream blushes from Bourjois, having just mastered the application method, I could not wait to give these a whirl. What I like about these cream blushes are the colours! All four are perfect, literally! Separated into a peach and pink category, all four colours are extremely wearable and flattering. There's a light peach, a warm peach, a light pink and a more vibrant pink, all packed into the classic Bourjois round pot design complete with a mirror. These are creamy, easy to apply and dry to a matte finish. Colour payoff is great, what you see is what you get. I think they are fantastic for carrying around in any handbag due to their small portable size. Each pot is £7.99.

(Top Super Strawberry Botton Mighty Mimosa)*
Whenever I think of Spring, I imagine soft berry stained lips. Nothing too heavy but enough to add colour and brighten ones complexion. This is when The Chubby Sticks* by Clinique came to mind. The original balm stain creators, chubby sticks are still on the rise with more colours being added every season, they currently have 16 colours. I have two chubby sticks, Super Strawberry and Mighty Mimosa, both belonging to the fruity berry family. Super Strawberry is a more darker shade of strawberry whereas Mighty Mimosa is a softer lighter hue. Both are extremely smooth and moisturising, you can skip the lip balm here. I would categorise them as sheer tints, perfect for Spring and especially great for those who rarely wear lipstick but is looking for lip colours. If you're looking for something more intense, I know they have recently launched the 'Intense Chubby Sticks' which are the same price, £16.
Do you own any chubby sticks?
NYX The Runway Collection - Champagne & Caviar £10
Whilst browsing the NYX store for a few lipsticks, I could not help but checkout with this too, at £10, it is a real bargain. Im always on the hunt for a perfect neutral palette, some mattes, a bit of shimmer with a mixture of light and dark tones, no surprises, I was automatically attracted to this palette. The palette has a perfect mix of colours, everything I need, a matte white for highlighting, shimmering gold, taupe and bronze hues, a matte brown and matte black for defining, I am not sure why this palette isn't more popular! The shadows are smooth and easy to blend, far beyond my expectations. The small size makes it perfect for travelling and makeup bags. I would highly recommend this palette to any neutral lover, it really is fab!
I came across this bag whilst browsing online the other night. Refusing to wait, I hot footed it down to my local Zara the next day. I couldn't find it in store, instead I found one, on the arm of a lady queuing for checkout. It was the last one! Not giving up, the next day I went to a different Zara were I found it! HALLELUJAH! It's such a great accent colour, the perfect size and structurally impressive. It was only £29.99 too! I obviously brought it home. Ker-ching! I can't wait to style this with some baggy boyfriend jeans, heels and a casual t-shirt! My day was made.
