These are the things Mumpty loves this week – 17/10/2014
♥ Skindinavia The Makeup Primer Spray
The Makeup Primer spray by Skindinavia is a lightweight, vitamin-based, silicon-free spray/mist that just helps everything you slap on your face go on smoother, and last longer. Who wouldn’t be happy with that right?! The Skindinavia brand is much loved by makeup artists, and this particular spray was recommended to me by one of the best – Joanne Gair (check out her work – amazing). I’m loving it, and so will you. If you’re a New Zealand reader, you can find it at www.makeup.co.nz Next on my list to purchase is the finishing spray by Skindinavia.
♥ The Louis Vuitton Icons collection – Christian Louboutin
I think it takes a company that is pretty secure in its product and its heritage to create an “icons” range wherein it collaborates with other famous designers from rival companies. And to celebrate its 160th year anniversary, that’s exactly what Louis Vuitton has done with the likes of Christian Louboutin, Karl Lagerfield (Chanel) and others. The handbag below is one of the designs from Christian Louboutin – isn’t it gorgeous – I love how he’s done one side red to align with his own brand and used the studs he’s so fond of. And at a mere $US5,150 this shopping tote is a snip!
♥ My new dress by Pinup Girl Clothing … the Jenny dress in Neverland print
Isn’t it cute?! I have worn this about four times now and have gotten lots of compliments each time. The Jenny dress is VERY full around the waist, which took a bit of getting used to, but once you get your head round that you’ll end up wanting to boof it out even more with a petticoat! The Neverland print is a really fun print … shhh, it has topless mermaids on it! Another thing I love about Pinup Girl Clothing is that they always show their garments on both a “standard” model and a “plus-size” model like the one above. Clever people. (And speaking of Pinup Girl Clothing … did you see my recent post about what I’d buy there if I had $800? Click here if you missed out.)

♥ Jordana blushes …
For the price of these ($3.50 each in NZ), you are getting such amazing value – so much so, in fact, that you almost feel like you’re ripping someone off! These go on well and stay on well and the colours are so pretty. There’s not really much more you can expect from a blush now is there?! I have three of them and expect to collect more – for that price, why not? Jordana are a very reputable American brand too and don’t test on animals, so you don’t need to worry about anything horrible like that or about putting cheap rubbish on your face – you’re fine with Jordana. In NZ you can find it at many of the $2 Shops but beware – the stands get stocked up and emptied out again almost as fast as ELF at KMart! Check out the rest of their range too – it’s just good makeup for the price.
And finally … who doesn’t love a good nude? This pair of Christian Louboutin 120mm Pigalle in nude patent would be very welcome to join my wardobe.
