Today's Obsession: Rose Gold

Hey there! I haven't posted in a while because I'd been ill for a little while and this month seems to be flying past so quick I don't even know where the weeks have gone. So I'll get straight into my February obsession which I hadn't even realised until the other day, that everything I seem to be using/buying at the moment is rose gold. 
Ever since I bought my Cartier bracelet dupes the rose gold one has definitely been my favourite, I pair it with a matching Geneva watch I bought on Amazon last summer alongside other jewellery from Oasis.
Next up were two sale items I bought in Debenhams after Christmas, I purchased a set of 4 mini Lancome juicy tubes which I have always been a fan of because of their long lasting glossy effect and my current favourite of them all is this peachy coloured tube with tiny gold shimmers through it because it looks fantastic over a coral/pink lipstick or even on it's own. 
My second purchase was the bare minerals eye shadow palette 'The Affair to Remember' this gorgeous palette had to be mine from the moment I saw it, with subtle colours in shades of brown, green & lilac there's a colour to suite all eyes and moods! The packaging is lovely in a slim line, rose gold mirrored compact it's very chic and perfect for travelling because it's so lightweight. The only downside to the compact is because it's mirrored it really highlights finger prints  which if you're a little ocd like myself can be irritating. I find the first three colours in the top left of the palette 'Curtsy, Valet & Debutante' are great for an everyday smokey eye and don't make you look as though you're wearing heavy makeup. 
Another eye shadow getting a lot of use is the Seventeen solo eyeshadow pot from Boots (I sadly don't have a name for this product because it's worn off) I love love love this shadow it's a pink rose gold colour which just warms my complexion and compliments my eye colouring plus for a cheaper product it's highly pigmented so the staying power is brilliant. 

I recently received a The Balm blusher as a gift in the shade Hot Mama! which I was over the moon about because I'd been eyeing up these blushes forever but couldn't decide on the shade I wanted but I am so excited about this one! It's a gorgeous pinky coral colour which has a highlighting gold shimmer so it really gives you a healthy glow, you don't need much on your brush to get a colour and it applies smoothly and evenly. I love this one so much I will definitely be purchasing 'Cabana Boy' in the near future. 
Another makeup purchase has been the Maybelline Coloursensational lipstick in shade Coral Pearl 852, a girl can never have too many nude lipsticks for everyday use, this is my most used at the moment. It's really moisturising and has a lovely sheen to it once applied, I have a few of these lipsticks in other colours so it's needless to say I'm a fan. 
And finally anyone who read my last post will have already seen my new purse, but it's so gorgeous and fits in with my rose gold theme so it totally deserves to make a second appearance in my opinion!
Hopefully now I'm better I'll be more consistent with my posts again so bear with me guys,

Thanks for reading!
