I am going through another somewhat rut-like phase…where I’m using the same products day after day. This rut isn’t totally a bad thing, although it does make me have major blogger-guilt for not using other products in the stash.
But that being said, I have been loving these things and if I love them, I’m not going to not use them purely for guilt related reasons.
So my recent favourites have been:
Origins Platscriptions Foundation* – I’m generally not a fan of super-heavy foundation (for myself) as don’t like to feel like I’m wearing a heavy base. For me this is ideal – it looks and feels natural but still offers a good level of evening out and coverage. It also leaves skin looking glowing but not shiny. My favourite sort of finish. Oh, and the packaging is very travel-friendly.
Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara* – Love this, and have done for ages. Need to repurchase ASAP.
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara* – another long term love. You won’t find a day that this doesn’t feature in my make-up routine.
Soap and Glory Arch De Triumph – another love of a few months. Although I now have a couple of new brow products on the horizon so will see how this fares against these new ones on the testing block! For this I am loving the highlight part to brighten the inner corners of the eyes.
Topshop Make-up Blusher/Bronzer Duo in ‘Dessert Sun’* – This was from a previous limited edition collection so the packaging is different but the shade is now available in the main collection. I love the combination of pink blusher and bronzer to give some warmth and a healthy glow to the skin.
Topshop Make-up Cream Blusher in ‘Flush’ – This is a super bright pinky colour with a touch of neon coral adds an extra touch of colour to the cheeks and find that this is perfect for my rapidly becoming dull and pale winter complexion.
I’m also wearing Revlon Lip Butter in ‘Cotton Candy’ although it’s not pictured with the other products.
