Blush Pink & Cream Lust List

Love, Catherine | Blush Pink & Cream Lust List

I'm not usually a huge Pandora lover, but since seeing the new Valentine's Day charms on Freddyhere) I'm completely heart eyed and now I'm totally lusting after a bracelet to fill with all the pretty pink heart shaped charms. I've got my eye on a few new Ted Baker items too, especially this gorgeous  floral umbrella and  dreamy card holder which would go perfectly with my pink Ted Baker bow bag. I'm loving the pretty ruffle trend at the moment, it's so dainty and girly, and this  River Island top is the prettiest along with this beautiful  silky pleated midi skirt. Also, how adorable is this  tulle garland?! It would make such a pretty blog photography prop.

River Island |  Mesh Frill Layer Lace Top
Pandora |  Cherry Blossom Clip
Ted Baker |  Micro Bow Card Holder
Ted Baker |  Pink Window Box Umbrella
Talking Tables |  Tulle Garland
Ted Baker |  Rose Notebook And Pen

Which items do you think I should splurge on?

Love, Catherine | Four Champagne Pinks To Try, Swatches

You only need to take a quick glance at my content to be well aware that I'm a self-confessed baby pink addict. So it'll probably come as no surprise when I tell you that I pretty much live in champagne pink eyeshadow shades, I find they really make my eyes pop against my fair skin, and look gorgeous with winged liner. I'll pair it with a soft brown or pale mauve in the crease and that's basically my everyday look done. You know when you find a makeup style that just suits you, so you almost never stray from it 'cos everything else looks strange? Yup that's me. So here are my top four, all time favourite, shimmery champagne pinks!

Benefit | R.S.V.P
This Creaseless Cream Shadow is probably the truest champagne pink shade out of the four. It's a gorgeous pink with a frosty finish. I'm not usually a huge fan of cream shadows, but I just love how this one applies effortlessly, it lasts well on the lid and has a lovely velvety texture. It also makes a great base for other shimmery shades to intensify them. Mine is actually super old now, it was one of the first high end eyeshadow products that I had and I've loved it ever since. Should probably treat myself to an update though...

Too Faced | Satin Sheets
Satin Sheets is a dreamy, shimmery pink with a stunning rose gold undertone. It's the first shade I gravitated towards in my Chocolate Bon Bons palette, but it also makes an appearance in the Boudoir Eyes palette too. It has great pigmentation and is a really lovely shade that I think would compliment many different skintones.

Urban Decay | Sin
Back when I owned my first Naked palette, this one was my favourite shade, so much so that I used up the entire shadow without touching many of the other colours. So instead of purchasing the whole palette again, I added it to my collection in solo form. It's coming off a little bit bronze in the swatch, but I promise it's not, it's a silky beige, ballet pink which is the most wearable shade of the lot. It's perfect if you don't want to look to silvery or overdone.

Laura Geller | Charming Pink
I've saved my favourite for last because ohhh my it's a beaut! It's actually a Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator, which looks stunning as a highlight (just trust me) and is one of my most used alongside Becca Moonstone. But I've also fallen for it as an eyeshadow too, don't you just love multi-use products? It's the prettiest, pearly pink and looks gorgeous when applied with a bit of MAC Fix +, which I'd recommend for all of the shades to intensify the colour and shimmer. It's a princessy dream.

Which champagne pink shades would you recommend?
