September Beauty Favourites: NARS, Rouge Bunny Rouge, Jojoba Company, and more

September Favourites-2

Wet and Wild Fergie Eyeshadow Primer – Rae recommended this for oil slick lids which defies even TFSI and UD Primer Potion. It is BRILLIANT. The best eyeshadow primer I’ve ever used, and I’ve tried quite a few.

Clarins Instant Light Concealor–  it is lightweight, long lasting and has peach undertones to counteract undereye circles.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Blackpepper Jay Eyeshadow– not just a fantastic matte eyeshadow, I’ve been using this on my brows every day since getting this, a great shade for Asian colouring.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Umber Firefinch eyeshadow – the ‘little black dress’ of eyeshadows. This has been on high rotation in the past few weeks, I adore it.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray-I picked this up about a month ago and was so excited to find that I’ve finally found something that actually works in extending the wear of my blush, contour, highlighting.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in Dolce Vita and Walkyrie – love these pencils I can’t even.

September Favourites

 

Musq Hand Wash and Face & Body Exfoliant– I recently tried this brand for the first time, and have been super impressed by these two products. Reviewed in my previous post.

MooGoo Cover- Up Buttercup SPF 15 Natural Moisturiser($29.90) Formulated with mineral sunscreen ingredients only, in a moisturising base. SPF 15 doesn’t sound like much but 19% Zinc Oxide is decent. I like this moisturiser with SPF in winter because it’s super emollient without feeling suffocating, and it makes my foundation sit better over flaky skin.

Jojoba Company Hydrating Day Cream– lightweight, silky, sinks in fast, and smells gorgeous. Exactly what you need in a day time moisturiser.

These are a few of my favourite things: Winter 2013

Blog images July

Hello!

It’s been awhile since I did a ‘favourites’ post (could it really be since March 2012?), so I thought I would share some products that I’ve been loving over the past few months.

In the past month or so I’ve been pretty lazy with makeup- minimal eye makeup with a focus on lips. In winter, every extra minute in bed is worth it’s weight in gold.

These are the lip products that I have been on high rotation. I absolutely love all of them, and really am kicking myself for not getting a backup of the sadly discontinued Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon.

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things: March 2012

I finally got some time to indulge in some major blog reading the last couple of days, and I’ve forgotten how much I enjoyed reading  ‘what’s in my bag’ and ‘monthly favourites’ type blog posts.

I decided to photograph and list some products which have been staples in my makeup bag recently.

1. Z Palette with some MAC and Inglot shadows that I use almost daily.   2. Make Up For Ever waterproof eyebrow corrector.  3. Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Illusoire  4. MAC Bronzer in 'Golden'

(I have swatched and listed them below)

2. Make Up For Ever waterproof eyebrow corrector.

This gem of a product is all I use on my brows now. It’s the only thing that will last all day on me and will even stay on during a sweaty gym session. I reviewed and swatched this in my waterproof makeup post.

3. Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Illusoire.

Such a versatile product- I use it during the day to dress up a neutral work look, and during the night to add sparkle/dimension to a smoky eye. I swatched it here, and featured it in a taupe and purple FOTD here.

4. MAC Bronzer in ‘Golden’

Hello cheekbones! I’ve discovered the joys of contouring and wild horses can’t drag me away from bronzer.

 

5. Becca Beach Tint in Peach 6. NARS Chihuahua lipgloss 7. Burberry Lip Mist in Blueberry 8. Make Up For Ever HD Blush #8 PDA , 9. Kosmea Replenishing Moisture Cream
