Things I love this week #1

As I have a few moments, a small person is asleep on my lap, my thoughts dwell on items in my cosmetics which I particularly love this week!

Sleek MakeUP's LASH OUT mascara. I am so surprised by this mascara. In a good way. I am not one for mascaras bought from high street stores (I prefer to buy my staple Beauty Without Cruelty on line). However, a couple of uses in and I was impressed enough to keep it in my every day make up case. It has a thin wand with a thick formula that combine to give roots a real boost in thickness and when swept to the ends an enhanced curl. It's thick so work with it carefully, using a lash comb or clean/dry mascara wand to avoid ending up with two rather clumpy lashes as they stick together! It really has worked to make my lashes longer and thicker, giving that false lash look. If I don't find anything better in the mean time I would definitely repurchase this mascara.

Sleek Make UP Au Naturel i-divine Palette. I have been using this day in and day out for the last three months since moving house and taking an eternity to unpack the rest of my make up. Even though it is now unpacked, I have continued to use this palette. It constantly surprises me when I mix and match different shades for completely different looks, I can go from a "nude" to a full on smoky look in a few strokes from this palette.

New-ID i-groom eyebrow pencil. I have recently purchased three back ups of this amazing eye brow pencil as I feel real fear when I think of running out of it. It comes in one colour and the density of colour is dependent of how many sweeps of the pencil I use. I find it very difficult to find a perfect black/brown for my eye brows, but this is brilliant. The slanted triangular shape of the pencil makes filling in and shaping brows super easy, in one stroke. Try it, you won't look back!

Lumiere Cosmetics Lumi Lips in Spice or In The Nude. Let it be known that I am a not a fan of sparkly or sticky lip glosses. In fact I just had a massive clear out and threw them all out. I am now the proud owner of less than a handful. These two are my massive favourites as they are soft, moisturising, you can see the colour on your lips and natural looking. I would go out of my way to repurchase these from the US as I haven't found anything comparable to the quality, wear and colour.

Daniel Sandler Foundation/Concealer in Deep Sand and Watercolour Creme Rouge. A simply amazing duo of products that make my make up application and wear supremely simple and effective. The foundation is creamy but light. I like to apply a few dots to forehead, cheeks and chin then blend with a damp blush brush (try it, it feels quite refreshing!). I have converted both of my sisters to this foundation, they love it - possibly not as much as I do but then they are not as cosmetics obsessed as I am.

So, which products are you particularly loving this week, it being the week of love and all that?
