Hello, loves! I haven’t done a favourites post in a while so here’s what I’ve been reaching for over the past month! May be a long one, got a lot since it’s been a while!
MORPHE 35B and 35O palettes
I’ve recently been loving using the Morphe palettes, mainly the 35O for everyday “work appropriate” looks and the 35B for my more colourful looks! I recently did a review on the morphe palettes (here) if you want to see my full opinion on them!
KAT VON D MetalMatte palette
I picked this up at the beginning of the month so I’ve been playing with it a lot! I’ll have a full review up on it soon but if you’re thinking of picking it up then I definitely recommend it!
T.C.O.L The Agenda and The Interview lashes
Since I got these lashes I’ve used them in 80% of my makeup looks! I LOVE THEM! They’re so soft, wispy, lightweight, reusable and comfortable! They add drama to any look and they’re just generally perfect! Plus look at this super cute note that they sent! ♥ Again, I’ll have a full review up on them soon!
Real Techniques Miracle Mini Eraser Sponges
These little sponges are awesome! I don’t actually like the regular RT sponges but these little mini ones are so useful! I use them damp to blend out undereye concealer, apply liquid highlight and blush, and then I use then dry to wipe away fall out, pat on concealer over blemishes or patting on powder highlight! They’re really impressive for such little things, and they expand a fair bit, although the only downside is that I’ve misplaced them on my desk so many times just because they’re so tiny!
COTY Airspun powder
I got this a while ago after not being able to get my hands on the RCMA powder and I’m really glad I did! I use it every day, for baking or just generally setting my makeup and I’ve barely made a dent in it!
COLLECTION Illuminating Setting Powder
Nowadays every powder seems to be mattifying but since I have dry skin they make me like look a slice of bread, so when I swatched this Illuminating powder I immediately needed it on my face! It’s got a really pretty pink shift to it and it adds a healthy glow to my skin while keeping my foundation in place all day.
L’OREAL False Lash Telescopic mascara
I can’t remember who I saw using this on Instagram but I remember thinking “damn those lashes!” so I grabbed it in a 3 for 2 offer and it works wonderfully! It makes my lashes super long, fluffy and curled all day! L’oreal kick ass with mascaras though so this isn’t a surprise to me!
GOSH Lip Oil
I actually got this months ago but I recently fell back in love with it when I split my lip open (I have no idea how I’m guessing cold weather?) and I used this instead of lipbalm because they didn’t do anything but this healed my lip in 3 days! It’s not sticky like lip gloss, which I absolutely hate, and it’s moisturising and really comfy to wear! It does have a slight tint to it and it smells/tastes like raspberries!
GOSH Overnight Primer Oil Essence
I only recently picked this up but I already added it to my skin routine and I love it so far! I put it on just before I go to bed, look like a greaseball then wake up and feel super soft! I’ve noticed that it makes my foundation go on much smoother and blend easier so it’s a win so far from me!
SLEEK Barekissed Illuminator ‘Casablanca’
I already have to white version of this but I bought the pink version to use as a liquid blush/highlight. It looks like a lot when swatched but I use it with a damp sponge and pat on a little bit at a time and blend it out, and it ends up looking natural with a healthy glow!
MAYBELLINE Baby Lips ‘Pumpkin Spice, Vanilla Latte & Chai Tea Latte’
I don’t know if all 3 are limited edition or if they’re permanent, but I had to grab them as soon as I saw them! Again I got them on a 3 for 2 so I got 1 free! The pumpkin spice one smells/tastes incredible but annoyingly the bright orange lip isn’t a trend I can pull off! The Chai Tea Latte one gives a really subtle red tint and the vanilla cupcake one I just wanna eat… but it also gives a really nice pink sheen!
FREEDOM Brow Powder ‘Ash Brown’
I’m pretty sure I’ve written about this before but it’s something I use everyday so it had to be a favourite this month! It looks really warm in the picture but it matches my dark brows fine and doesn’t have a weird red tint like a lot of brow products do!
COLLECTION Define & Perfect eyebrow powder
This is the same kind of thing as the last product but in a little stick form! I use it when i’m in a really big rush and don’t wanna fuss about with brushes and I just want to give my brows some definition!
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Ebony Dipbrow
I’ve had this for a while, like probably too long, but I stopped using it when I lightened my hair so it just sat in my drawer for a while until I changed it back to dark. Annoyingly it dried out a little but I added a little bit of Duraline (It’s all I had but it worked okay!) and I use it mainly for my Instagram looks that may be a little too “extreme” for every day.
LIME CRIME Velvetines ‘Cashmere, Buffy & Teddy Bear’
I have 2 blog posts (x,x) already on these, and I originally saw Stephanie Nicole reviewing them so I grabbed a couple and I can’t wait to build up my collection! They’re long lasting and comfortable enough to wear to work every day and the colours are sooo pretty!
Alright, that’s it for this month, or for this year… depends on when I next do a favourites post!
Thanks for stopping by, see ya next time! ♥
