currently lovin'

it's been a while since I've popped up a currently lovin' so here's the latest instalment of a few items that are currently floating my boat!

1. thrifted straw bag: I love a good rummage through my local vintage & second hand shops! I picked up this little straw bag for £2  and I love it!

2. illamasqua androgen cream pigment* this is a wonder product!! a beautiful cream pigment that I use mostly on my cheeks (but can be used on eyes and lips too if it takes your fancy) a warm coral pink androgen is a shade that suits most skin types and gives a lovely glow.. if you're after a combination make up this is a great investment and has become a firm favourite of mine!

3. topshop nail polish in spilled milk: my love affair with white nails continues and this is my latest buy! the formula of this colour is surprisingly good needing 2 coats for coverage; I've found it doesn't chip too easily either! white polishes can be a little hit and miss so if you've been looking for one I'd give this a thumbs up.

4. bourjois colour boost in red sunrise: I've seen a lot of reviews on these lip crayons so I decided to jump on the bandwagon and try one! I have to say I like it, it's not dry on application, has a good pigment and the sheen finish is really pretty.

5. loreal super liner brow artist* I love a good brow product and this one is a handy little item! it has the regular brow pencil at one end to shape and define (as well as a brush to comb those strays into place!) however the real selling point though is the fix & finish wax pencil that you use to 'hold' your brows in place for the day. I've never used anything like it; it's a really simple but effective addition to a normal brow pencil. a good addition to my on the go make up bag..

6. kukee jewellery: I've not purchased any kukee jewels for a while so I went to check out their new additions and found a few little bargains to freshen up my wardrobe. I'm in love with the chunky silver toned rings and boho silver and gemstone necklaces, a great site for amazingly affordable accessories! 
hope you're all having a good week!

back soon
