This Week I've Been Wearing... #1.



I thought it was about time a new feature hit gh0stparties.com, and it seemed right to post all about the products I've been wearing on a weekly basis. As a blogger who is addicted to all things beauty, it's likely that I'm trying a fair few new products each week, or delving in to my collection and finding old favourites.

The week I've been using everything from dry shampoo to cream blushers, so this is a little insight of the products I've been using daily (and nightly) this week.
I have had Timoteis Dry Shampoo for some time now but only really got round to using it this week. The vintage hair brand have made a come back recently and I'm really in to this dry shampoo. It doesn't leave any white powder or residue and my fine hair is thoroughly cleansed for the whole day! 

I've also been a fan of the pink lips, cheeks and nails recently - I pulled out my Illamasqua blush in Sob for the dreary weather and I like the subtle pop of pink on my cheeks. It goes so well with the Benefit lipgloss in Lift on the A-List - one of my favourite glosses, it's a lovely light nude pink with just that right amount of shimmer. 
Once again Essies Watermelon nail polish has been a favourite of mine, I really can't get enough of this glossy raspberry shade. I rarely paint my nails with a shade twice in a row, so this has really won me over. It goes so perfectly with my lip colour of choice at the moment, the L'Oreal Rouge Caresse lipstick in Aphrodite Scarlet. I love how easy this makes wearing red lipstick, it's such a glossy shade that works for everyone. 

I came across an old favourite of mine in this L'Oreal Touche Magique concealer. I bought the wrong shade some time ago but as it turns out, this works so well for under eyes. I've swapped all my high end under eye products for this inexpensive concealer which covers all! 

Lastly, serums have been a big part of my week as you can see! I love this Ojon hair serum on damp hair to keep it in check, my hair really feels so much healthier after using this and it's one I think I'll be using a lot over the coming months.  
As for skincare, two of my favourite skincare brands have been top of my most used list. I only have a few samples of this Aesop serum but it does amazing things to my skin and I can tell it's going to be great for keeping my skin hydrated during the colder months.
Along with this, Antipodes Brightening and Correcting serum is working wonders on my blemish prone skin to fade dark marks and keep my skin looking healthy. I love everything I try from Antipodes, and this serum is no exception.

What do you think of my products this week?

  17. Interesting! I always find dry shampoo a bit iffy because my hair is dark and it generally takes forever for the greyness to work it's way out. I really want to find a kind I like!
