It's the season for that radiant illuminating look. You oily-combination girls reading this don't run away just yet. Well actually I went, "No that's just not going to work for me", but I now I'm curious to see if I can pull it off after picking up some tips and tricks at the Bobbi Brown Radiant Beauty Workshop with Bobbi Brown's Manager of Artistry (Asia Pacific), Felix Nguyen.

This list isn't as long as my Beauty, Skincare & Fragrance one because I seem to have kept to or went back to old faithfuls.

There have also been colours that I have fallen for, some good tools and fragrances that I have been reaching for more than others. I have reviewed most of the products listed here but there are some that I seem to have missed.
