It's been a little while since I put up my first "Currently Loving" post. In fact, it was way back in October. Since then I've indulged in more products that is probably healthy for my bank balance, but I've been careful about what I've bought instead of caving into blogger hype (still avoiding the Naked 3, fyi).
I'll start off by mentioning my newest lipstick addition, from the Chanel Spring collection. Radiant orchid is said to be the colour of 2014, and the Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in L'Adoree is the perfect definition. It's a very unusual shade, but not so much so that it looks strange on the lips. The matte finish was something I was weary of, however it's the best matte formula I've ever tried. I love the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils, but I do find they tug at the lips during application. Chanel's offerings just glide on, however, making them easy to apply - particularly when you're on the go.
Next up is the The Body Shop's Rainforest Volume Shampoo. As mentioned in my "2014 Beauty Resolutions" post, I've been trying to avoid shampoos containing SLS. Prior to trying this I was using the L'Oreal EverRiche Nourishing & Taming Shampoo, but I felt it just made my hair oilier than it was already. This one however smells amazing, and although I haven't noticed any volumising effects it's certainly doing the job of cleaning it.
I couldn't not mention my Inglot palette (review here) in this post. I've been using it constantly over the past few weeks as the quality is just beautiful. It's definitely one of my favourite eyeshadow purchases and I might even make up a second when I'm in Florida this year.
Last but not least is the Yves Rocher Comfort Cream Foundation. I bought this after reading it was a favourite of makeup artist Linda Hallberg (seriously, her makeup is flawless), and Yves Rocher actually had a buy one get one free offer on at the time. It's a great medium coverage foundation that doesn't sit heavy on the skin. The shade range is slightly limited, however. I have the shade Beige 100 and I think anyone with paler skin than myself could struggle for a match.
Have you bought anything recently that's weaselled its way to the top of your list?
