Makeup I´m Currently Loving

It´s been awhile since I talked about what products I have been loving at the moment, mainly because I use a lot of the things over and over again but recently there have been a few additions to my makeup routine that I haven´t been able to stop using.
Recently I have been loving a primer, and actually using it every time I use makeup I honesty can´t remember doing this, I normally forget, but this one has really amazed me, the primer in question is the Makeup Forever Step 1 Smoothing primer, it just improves the texture of my skin and like the primer says smooths it, which is my biggest concern with my skin is the texture, it´s a new release from the brand, there are actually quite a few for different concerns, I also have my eye on the Mattifying one. 
For my base I have been obsessed with 2, the Dior Star Foundation for when I want more coverage and the Chanel Vitalumìere Aqua for the days I want a lighter base that still gives me good coverage and if I need more I just pop a little bit of concealer.
For blush I have been loving Mac Crisp Whites from the new collection Wash and Dry, it´s a lovely peach colour.
For my eyes I have been loving this crayon Colorband Eyeshadow and liner from Bourjois in the shade 02 Brun, a lovely bronzy color perfect to Summer.
Finally for my lips I have been wearing non stop the Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in the shade 06, a lovely nude.

These are my current favourites, what are yours?

Clarins Aquatic Treasures Collection Summer 2015

When it comes to Summer Collections, I always have a look at Clarins,they always have a beautiful collection and this year was no exception. If you read my blog you will remember last year´s collection.
This collection is called Aquatic Treasures, it´s very pretty but I have to say I´m disappointed that it didn't include a palette ( I know like I need another palette!! Not!) I wanted to see this year offering, but instead they have 3 shimmery cream eyeshadows, I bought mine in 01 Aquatic Rose, I think this is the most popular I had to go to so many stores to be able to find it! It reminds me of Mac All that glitters but in cream form, so you if you like that shade this one is for you. Next I bought the Instant Radiant Boosting Complexion Base in 05 Golden Bronze, I thought I could use this as a liquid bronzer or to warm up lighter foundations, it does come up quite orangey but once you blend it in it fades to a beautiful hint of warmth, so if you are quite fair be careful. And finally, Ooops I did it Again! I bought the bronzer, I have now 3! Someone stop me! Next year I cannot buy the bronzer! But it looked so pretty I just couldn't help myself!

Did you buy anything from the collection? Do you love Summer Collections as much as I do ?

Paris Haul

In my previous post I showed you what makeup I took with me when I went to Paris, now is time to show you what I bought. Let´s just say mama went a little nuts and clearly was feeling spendy! My poor wallet is still crying from the money that is no longer there!!

First I went to Sephora and did some damage, I bought the Estée Lauder Perfectionist Foundation, I have been wanting this for awhile but couldn't find my shade, I haven´t used it enough to have much of an opinion, but when it comes to foundation i don´t think Estée Lauder foundations are for me, simply because I have such a hard time finding a shade that suits me they all look very orangey or pink for my liking, oh the struggle! I also bought the Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream which I have yet to use. I also bough the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, that I have been enjoying using.
I bought the Chanel Vitalumière Aqua in the Airport, I have heard so many good things about it that I finally caved in and bought it and I have to say I love it! I didn´t think I would because is quite light but I do, it covers pretty much everything I need, I hardly need concealer.
Back to what I bought at Sephora, I had to pick up more of the By Terry Ombre Black Star, this time in the shades Misty Rock and Beyond Gold, Yas it´s love! They are amazing!!! Love Love these!
My little drugstore purchase was the Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in 210 Keep it Classy.
Next I went to Printemps and I went a little wild! First I went to Nars and finally bought 2 lip products that have been sold out everywhere, I couldn't find anywhere or online, so I was so excited when they had it there. The lipsticks in question are the Nars Audacious lipstick in Anna and the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned.
And now for the grand finale I went to the Tom Ford counter! I have been wanting Tom Ford Makeup for so long and now finally took the plunge. I had one lipstick when Tom Ford Beauty first launched with the white packaging. I bought 3 Lipsticks in Pink Dusk, Indian Rose and Violet Fatale and 3 Eyeshadow Quads, Cocoa Mirage, Golden Mink and Cognac Sable. I love them! I have been having so much fun playing around with them!

So here it my Paris Haul.
