Brow zings by Benefit

I've never bothered with brows.  Having naturally dark hair, I've never seen he benefit with shaping and filling - just making sure they're perfectly arched and tidy.
But with the infestation of bushy-browed models, I've realised now more than ever just how important it is to keep your brows full (even if you already have them).
So when I went shopping today, I bought Brow zings by Benefit.  This tiny kit (RRP £22) comes in three shades - light, medium and dark.  It is the all-in-one brow perfecting kit, ideal for shaping and defining.
As well as the pigmented wax for shaping, and the natural-shaded powder for setting, this handy kit comes complete with discreet tweezers, hard angle brush and a blending brush, all packed into a mirrored compact.
Even the lightest shade is quite dark, so this is the one I went for.
I'd definitely recommend this.  It is the only product you need for perfect brows.

Lipstick Queen - The Look of Love

There are so many make-up sets out there that you buy because your ultimate favourite colour is in there.  You wear it religiously until there's nothing left, and the rest of the lipsticks in the set?  Well, they're discarded.  Gone.  Forgotten.  Purely because the colour is too bright, not the right tone, or just not your style.
Not so with the Lipstick Queen Look of Love set.  This amazing collection of pinky nudes is probably the only set out there where you will use all three products, and not one of them will be left out. 
The entire set is created out of colours that will suit pretty much everyone, especially if you're not a brave lipstick wearer (don't worry - it takes a while for all of us).

As it states on the box, falling in love brings out the natural, pink beauty in your lips and cheeks, and this set is perfect for enhancing it.
Oxymoron Honest Politician: this is incredibly versatile because it can be used on lips and cheeks.  Dab on for the perfect pink flush.  Creamy and light, it's the perfect base.
Saint Pinky Nude:  a creamy, romantic pink colour.  Perfect for day-to-day wear.
Butterfly Ball Smitten:  A light formula perfect for on its own, or sweeping over another colour to add an entrancing pink glow.
I've only had this in my possession for a couple of hours, and Honest Politician is already my handbag beauty secret weapon.

Pick of the Week - Forever 21

Channel this season's Monochrome and colourful pastels at the same time with this outfit from Forever 21.
Having fallen in love with the store when in New York last month, I have to say that no one does the latest trends at affordable prices like Forever 21.  Treat yourself to a whole new Spring wardrobe with prices that won't break the bank.
