Mentions of the Week #1

I've decided to start a series every Sunday called "Mentions of the Week" where I list certain things that I feel deserves a mention that week :) Here goes the first one, so I hope you like it! :)

Jewelry
Primark - £1
Cute simple earrings that I've been wearing a lot :)

Eyeshadow
MAC Woodwinked Eyeshadow - £9.50
A new buy from DitzyMakeUp's blogsale that I've been experimenting with :)

Lip Product
NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colors in Paris
My little buddy that's helping me learn how to wear bright lips -> my obsession/challenge atm!

Blush
MAC Style Blush - £16.50
Creeping its way back into being my go-to blush alongside the change in weather :)

Buy
LUSH Porridge Hand & Body Soap - £2.79/100g
Showers are so much more fun, easy and good-smelling with this baby, I love it! :)

Want
MAC Girl About Town Lipstick - £13.50
I tried this on in London - amazing. So different from what I have, and totally in accord with my obsession with learning how to wear bright lips :)

What have you been using that you feel deserves a special mention?
Let me know what you think about starting this series, hope you enjoyed! :)

  3. The earrings are super cute :) I'm really getting into Primark now. I've got Girl About Town and its such a nice pink, really classy and smells delish! The Lush soap sounds yum, I went into my local one for the first time ever the other day and I had no idea what to get. I'm gonna go on recommendations cos there is far too much to choose from!
    P.S.
    Hope you feel better soon! At least the bf is looking after you!
