Currently Coveting #3

Currently Coveting #3

Hello Lovelies,

Before I get into this weeks post, I just want to say a MASSIVE apology for not getting this post up yesterday, as I was out in the countryside visiting my aunt, which meant no laptop access and very minimal internet access. If you're familiar with my blog, then I'm sure you know what my "Currently Coveting" blog series is, but if you're not, "Currently Coveting" is a monthly post I do of items, whether it be make-up, clothing, TV Series, anything really, that I'm currently lusting - or coveting - over at the moment. I'll also link previous "Currently Coveting..." posts below, if you were wanting to check those out, if you haven't already. So without further ado, let's get into it, shall we ! :)

MAC Cosmetics Maleficent Lipstick in True Love's Kiss. When it comes to lipsticks, I am a massive sucker for a gorgeous red lip ! I think a red lip is such a timeless look and can bring an added dose of glamour to any outfit or make-up look. When I first heard that MAC would be releasing a make-up collection to coincide with Maleficent the movie, starring the gorgeous Angelina Jolie, I couldn't wait to see the red lip products to create Maleficent's trademark devilish red lip and I definitely wasn't disappointed !

Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow. Now that Winter seems the have officially set in, given that it is now June, I love being able to change up my make-up and move on from the typical summery look, and a gorgeous contour is just that ! An issue that many fair skinned people face when trying to find the perfect contour colour, is that many bronzers tend to be far too dark and orange. A warm tone bronzer would work perfect, if you're wanting to add some colour to the skin, such as in summer and just wanting to give your skin a glow, but when you're wanting to contour, in a sense you're trying to mimic shadows.... and last time I checked shadows weren't orange. The trick to a perfect contour is trying to find a slightly more grey stone-like shade, as this will give you that shadow look to where you apply it and Illamasqua's "Hollow" pigment is perfect for achieving that. So naturally being an incredibly fair person, I'd love to give this a go and see just how well it works out for me :)

Monki Lorena Jacket. I hadn't heard of this brand until a couple of weeks ago, when I just happened to stumble upon it, while having a little clothes search online. I was on the lookout for a nice versatile winter coat/jacket, but still at an affordable price and when I first saw this jacket I was immediately smitten. With an asymmetrical zip and a gorgeous textured peach fabric, I just think it would be a perfect staple piece for winter. I'd personally style it with a pair jeans - blue or black - teamed with a simple t-shirt possibly an infinity scarf for added warmth. It would even be wearable with a cute shift dress in summer on those nights that can sometimes be a little chilly. The only downside to absolutely falling in love with this brand, is I later discovered that don't currently ship to Australia :(

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. When it comes to make-up, I don't always like spending a tonne of money on a certain product, as I think you can find many cheaper brands such as Rimmel and Maybelline who's products would compete with the far more high-end and expensive brands. When I had read reviews and seen many Youtube videos, where beauty bloggers and youtubers had compared the Maybelline Baby Skin Primer to the Benefit POREfessional, but just a far more affordable version, I immediately wanted to give it a go, as I love a good primer which fills in my large pores around my nose, as well as being affordable and just as good as a more expensive product. Maybelline states that it's non-comedogenic, which means it won't clog your pores and cause nasty pimples, as well as it being fragrance free, which means it won't irritate sensitive skin. I haven't seen it stocked in any local shops such as Priceline or any chemists, but if you have seen it, I'd love you to let me know where it's stocked, as I'd love to try it out !

My Mad Fat Diary Season 3. When I first started watching season 1 of My Mad Fat Diary, I had no idea just how much I'd fall in love with this show. It starts out in 1996, following the story of a 16 year old, 16 stone - 100kg - girl, Rae Earl, who has just been released from a psychiatric hospital after spending 4 months there because of her suicide attempt. It covers everything from her struggles fitting in due to her weight, to her often tense relationship with her mum, as well as developing new friendships and even an unexpected relationship. It's based on the real life diary of Rae Earl. As much as I love other "teen life" based TV shows, such as skins, there hasn't been a TV series, that has properly covered the struggles that teens go through and given an in depth look at over-coming these issues, such as suicide and weight insecurities, as well as all the typical teenage drama with friends and boys. So far I haven't read anywhere online that is says it's been renewed for a 3rd season, but dear god, I hope it does! If you're after a good TV series, that at times is funny, but will also tug at the heart strings, I definitely recommend checking My Mad Fat Diary out :)

The Fault in Our Stars. I just want to point out I haven't read this book, and I know there are plenty of people out there who are incredibly passionate about reading a book before seeing the movie, but I'm not really one of them. I remember years ago, when one of my sisters said I had to finish reading the first Twilight book before she would take me to see it at the movies and I was kind of let down when they'd left out certain parts, or things didn't look the way I had imagined them to. So I thought I'd go and watch this movie without really knowing much back story to it, except for well known Cancer theme throughout the movie. After seeing countless quotes and posts about it Tumblr, I'm definitely going to have to see what all the hype is about.
