This week we're obsessed with ...
LUCY CORRY & NYREE MCFARLANE
THIS MUSIC FESTIVAL: Everyone's been going on about the sequin and bindi explosion that is Coachella, but the music fest that truly captured our imagination is Stagecoach, a California country music ho-down that attracts a crowd that looks they're all extras in an episode of True Detective. Even Ashton Kutcher wore some People-of-Walmart worthy garb.
THESE LIPPIES: We love the look of matte lippies but have found that all the dull-but-sexy colours we've tried to self apply have just dredged up flaky lip lint, making our puckers look like something from a horror film. Not L'oreal's new 'Colour Riche Moisture Matte', however, which comes in 10 shades - including a sassy orange and a classic red. It has a sort of velvet-like finish and seems to dry into matte over time without absolutely ruining your lips. Our new fave lippies. $23.99 at most pharmacies and beauty retailers.
THIS VIDEO: Kids taste lemon for the first time in Pucker. Some are delighted, others truly horrified. It's all about the slow-mo.
THIS TRANSLATION: will.i.am's all lower case name is as silly in French as it is in English.
THIS CLEANSER: Martina Organics Oil Cleanser, $89 - Yes, this cleanser is nearly $90 a bottle, but believe us, it's worth every precious drop. This gorgeous blend of organic argan, manuka, hemp, jojoba, marula, jasmine, almond, apricot and camelia oils is a miracle worker that's suitable for all skin types. It even dissolves and removes tough waterproof eye makeup! It's part of a small, perfectly formed range designed by Wellingtonian Marta Camara (other products include a rosewater toner and a facial moisturiser). If you're still worried about the spend, rest assured that our bottle is still going strong after twice-daily use for the last five months (and our skin has never looked better).

THIS QUOTE: Quote of the week goes to CK model, former Mr Keira Knightley (who's now happily married with a wee bub) and star of The Fall and 50 Shades Of Grey: "I’d like to do a job where I don’t have to tie women to beds." How does a man with such a phenomenal face keep getting typecast as such a creep?
