Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess 2014 Collection- The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette

Every Summer Estée Lauder releases their Bronze Goddess Collection , and every year I´m tempted to pick up something from the collection, last year I bought quite a few things that includes the highlighter( not shown) the Bronzer-I LOVE IT so much, it´s definitely my favourite since last year! My shade is 03 Medium Deep and the Perfume-My Summer Scent! Love Love this! Smells Amazing! (Both products shown in the pictures) ( The Bronzer and Perfume you can still buy from this year collection, from what I saw the packaging is still the same)
This year when I first saw pictures of this collection what caught my eye was The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette. What a Surprise? Me buying another eyeshadow Palette? Never?!? Just kidding I couldn't wait to get my hands on this baby!!! Since I got it, I haven´t used anything else. I love the neutral matte side, you can do an everyday day eye to a smokey eye, and add a pop of colour with the shimmer shades.
The ones I have been using the most are the 3rd and 4th shades from the matte side and the copper-bronzey shade from the shimmer side, but I can´t wait to try the other shades. The shadows have great pigmentation, are soft and easy to blend.
This palette is just beautiful! From the whole collection this is definitely the Most have product!!!

An Ode to Face Oils

I thought it was about time I mention Face Oils or as I call it amazing skin in a bottle! 
Iam obsessed with face oils, they have literally changed my skin!
My main problem with my skin is texture and a little bit of acne scarring, and this has improved the texture of my skin, has helped the acne scars to fade and even helped to minimise my pores, not to mention it keeps my skin super hydrated, in the winter I was very dehydrated and this fixed that problem. 
You use it in the evenings after you cleanse and before your moisturiser ( lately I have been skipping my moisturiser and the product on its own works amazing! 
When I wake up I have amazing, plumped looking skin! I haven´t used anything else in months, and the times I skipped this my skin wasn´t having it!! She was like Gurrl where is my fabulous Face Oil ?!? Give it back! 
The ones I recommend are: Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil ( My Favourite!) - for dehydrated skin( they have different ones for oily and dry skin, I also have the one for oily skin but I prefer this one I have seen more results with it) As you can see from the picture I´m almost out of it!

And Khiel´s Midnight Recovery Concentrate- Its a Cult Product for a reason! I think it´s one of their best sellers.

I really think these are Miracle Workers! Bold statement? I know, this is how much I Love them!

Have you tried Face Oils? Do you like them?

Currently Loving # 1

Now that the sun is coming out more and we are getting ready for Summer, even though the rain has come out a few times, NOT ACCEPTABLE it´s JUNE!!!! I have been craving the bronze Goddess look with a pop of colour on the lips.
So here is a few products I have been loving, The Ysl Touche Eclat foundation because it gives me a little bit of colour without making me look orange, I just slightly blend it into my neck (my shade is B40), this is a dewy foundation so soon enough I will have to stop wearing it because during the Summer my skin gets very oily so I have to use more matte foundations or Say Goodbye Dewy look and Hello Oily Hot Mess, and yes there is a Difference!!! One looks amazing, fresh and healthy and the second looks gross not a good look! But for now while is not super hot I can still wear it, I love this foundation!
Next we move on into bronzer I´m obsessed with this bronzer from the Clarins summer collection ( review here), I have been using it a lot. For blush I feel back in love with my Nars Blush in Gina its a beautiful matte peach blush I love it it has hardly left my cheeks this past few weeks and for highlighter I have been loving Betty-Lou Manizer from The Balm that just adds a beautiful bronzey glow.
Now onto eyes I could do a post just about my favourite eyeshadows but one in particular that I have been loving is Indianwood paint pot from Mac, it´s a gold-bronze eyeshadow to me is like mac woodwinked in cream form, I have been wearing this look with  my new favourite lipstick Mac Flat Out Fabulous, I´m obsessed with this amazing Hot Pink colour, it´s a retro matte formula so I would advise you to exfoliated and moisturiser your lips very well before you use it. And finally another favourite is a Mac Lustering its a beautiful pink-straberry-berry colour?? I´m terrible at describing things! Iam in Love with it so pretty for Summer. So here are a few of may favourites products at the moment.

What have you been loving?What are your Summer must haves?
