My Favourite Five #4

How?  How in the name of all that is good and sacred is it still January?  This month has gone on for the guts of about three months at this point and yet I still haven't gotten paid.  Roll on Friday, the day where I shall be rich, rich I tell you!  This week was great craic.  Joanne and I learned lots at our Slimming World meeting, then had chips on the way home like you do.  Event wise, it was nice and quiet with just the one but it was a goodie! Nuxe have launched a new perfume which is gorgeous and everyone at work was made smell it and they love it, so stand by for a review soon!  I can't do anything exciting this weekend due to lack of fundage and can't wait for February as I've lots of exciting things happening!

But on to the posts that tickled my pickle this week.  Are you ready for this jelly?

Temptalia - Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush.  Oh man I'm in trouble... After seeing the new Hourglass Ambient Light Blushes on Temptalia this week, they're all I can think about.  I use my Ambient Light powder all the time and it's a staple in my routine.  And now we're talking about mixing blush pigment in with the powder?  Well slap my ass and call me Sally, I want them.  I'm secretly hoping the swatches aren't great because I know I'm going to want them all, but I have a feeling they'll be on my face before too long.

Lisa Eldridge - Keira Knightley's Get The Look.  Yes, Keira Knightley's pout does my actual nut in but her eye makeup is always flawless.  Make up artist extraordinaire Lisa Eldridge is talking us through three looks she did on Keira recently and now I want to have a brown smokey eye and a red lip.  Right, I'm off to work on my pout.

It's Only Makeup John - YSL Youth Liberator Serum foundation. I'm so happy to see Lorraine back on the blogging bandwagon and long may she stay, do you hear that Lorraine?!  She's one of the funniest writers out there and has cheekbones that would rival my second husband to be, Benedict Cumberbatch.  You know when you read reviews of a product that everyone loves but it didn't work for you?  Well, until I read Lorraine's review of the new foundation from YSL, I thought I was alone in my dislike for it.  So thanks Lorraine for making me feel like I wasn't a dingbat for not getting on with it.  So folks, moral of the story is go and subscribe to her blog.  The end.

Sprinkle of Glitter - MAC Turquatic.  A few years ago, I found myself in the MAC shop in Times Square in New York.  Funny that.  It was so busy in there and I couldn't get near any of the makeup, but I was able to get a whiff of one of their perfumes, Turquatic to be precise and was raging I never bought it.  I forgot I wanted it until seeing Louise's post this week and to be honest, I can't remember what it smells like but I do remember smelling my wrist for the rest of the day in New York so this will be mine!

This week's favourite YouTuber is the one and only Mag from Emerald Eyeliner!  As you might have seen yesterday, Mags and I did our first collaboration post and hopefully there'll be more where that came from!  We may or may not have plans for a collab video or two as well so stay tuned for that.  Speaking of videos, if you haven't already, go and subscribe to her video channel.  Then sit back and get ready to want to buy stuff and to laugh.  Mags is a natural and I can tell you that how she is in the videos is how she is in real life and you may as well be sitting chatting with her when watching her.  A must watch!

So those were my favourite five.  Who were your favourite bloggers this week?  Leave any linky poos in the comments below!
