this week's favourite things
I'm just back from a week in Mexico. We had a wonderful family vacation and re-charged the batteries! I read three books, indulged in lots of cocktails, and just enjoyed family time on the beach and by the pool. It was fabulous!
While away, I kept my makeup to a minimum - mostly just sunscreen and a little lipgloss. We did dress for dinner each night, so I added the minimum of foundation with some blush and mascara. I find that in the heat, my makeup just melts off me anyway and makes me feel "ick".
The two Clarins products here - I wore EVERY single day in Mexico though! This is one of the new cream blushes launched in the Spring 2014 line in the shade "Candy". I love it! It applies beautifully and stays put. Really, really nice. And it suited my tan perfectly because it's a peachy pink. It's $30 Cdn at TheBay.com
I really like the sleek gold packaging and the fact that it isn't the size of a brick. I just use my fingers to rub some on my cheek bones and blend in gently. It applies very easily. I love blush that comes in a nice package. I really hate the ones that are huge with space for a silly brush that no one ever uses anyway - or so much product that it will go out of style before you can ever finish it.
I've really been getting to like Clarins lately and this Spring line has been a good one!
