This Week I've Been Wearing... #5.



This week I've been trying out some new products, as well as picking out a few old favourites that haven't been used in some time! These are all really Autumnal products, I always love when it gets a bit colder and I can get back to wearing darker, richer shades. 

Benefits Hervana is not a blush I reach for every day, but when I do I'm surprised at how much I love it on my cheeks. It's a shade I pick out for the colder months as it has purple undertones on my skin tone which is a nice change from the shades I usually wear. 
Another lovely Autumn shade is the BECCA Watermelon Beach Tint, this is one of my favourite lip products but it had somehow worked its way to the bottom of my lipstick drawer. This is a great matte tint for lips and cheeks in the most beautiful berry shade. I really recommend this if you haven't already tried it. 
I've been testing out the new Bobbi Brown Long Wear Even Finish foundation over the last week or two so I should hopefully have a review up this week. I'm really impressed with it so far, I like how natural it looks on my skin and the lasting power is a selling factor too. 

A couple of hair products have been working their way in to my routine lately, I've become obsessed with keeping my hair in good condition now it's a bit longer and I'm all about using conditioners and oils. This Dove Leave in Conditioner is just heavenly, it smells divine and detangles my hair so easily (something I struggle with!). In-between washes I spray a small amount on my hairbrush for lovely smooth hair. 
Bumble and Bumbles Hairdresser Invisible Oil is the latest hair oil to catch my eye, you only need a small amount of this to give your hair a lovely silky feel. So far it's worked wonders on the ends of my hair, and really helped to keep it shiny for as long as possible.

Essies Luxedo nail polish has quickly worked its way up the ranks to become my favourite Autumn nail polish. It's a deep, rich purple which is a lovely contrast against my fair skin. It's a nice change from the usual pinks and pastels that I usually wear, too. 
Lastly, I've dug out my trusty Naked 2 Palette as it hasn't seen the light for some time. I really love the first few shades of this palette, they're really easy to wear either alone or blended together and it's a great palette to have. I prefer the second palette to the first as I find the cooler shades to be much more wearable (also the packaging is easier to keep clean).

What do you think of this weeks most used products?

  17. I'm really intrested in trying the Bumble & Bumble Hair Oil but it's so expensive for the tiny amount you get.

    How does it compare to other hair oils you've used?

  20. I love that nail polish. I bought the wrong colour in Essie and wish I had researched it a little more before getting carried away. I think this may be my next purchase, perfect for Autumn!

  24. I've never tried naked palette before but I've seen and head a lot about it and am dying to try out! I heard Naked 2 palette has got a better brush and the packaging!

    Also I've been interested in Bumble and Bumbles, but have no idea which one to try out first. This oil looks nice, does it smell good?
