Here are the products I loved last month and continue to love now. Because it takes more than the mere passage of time to alter my passion for a product. Although I suspect now that the Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette is released, the normal Nudes may get tossed to the wayside. LOL. We'll see!
Covergirl Outlast Stay Luminous Natural Glow Foundation (Classic Ivory)
I'm so fussy with foundations! Or maybe I'm just really bad at finding good ones. Case in point: prior to buying this, I had one foundation that I wore daily, Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Ivory. That's what looked best on me, so I was sticking to it. Well, now I have a massive two foundations that I'm happy with, because my Stay Luminous one is a rare good find. My skin used to be oily, so I never used to be able to wear bases that gave a dewy finish, but now that its drier, I can totally get away with a foundation like this, without resembling an oil slick after a few hours. I love the formula; it almost goes on like a nice moisturiser, and it blends really easily. Because it's so easy to apply I reach for it when I'm in a hurry, as it takes less time to blend in than my Revlon Colorstay.
Rimmel ColourPrecise Eyeliner (Black)*
I was sent a black and a white one of these, and whilst the white one is not my cup of tea, the black one is coming in very handy. I'm very weird about my eyeliner, and still use Maybelline Masterliner for the majority of my line, but I've switched to using the Rimmel ColourPrecise for my wings. Previously I flicked my wings with the Master Graphic sharpie-like liner, but the ColourPrecise is, well, more precise! The tip is finer and tapered and it's also flexible, so it's easier to get a finer wing flick happening. I'm quite heavy-handed with my eyeliner, so anything that's going to make my look more refined has the thumbs up from me!
Perricone MD Advanced Eye Area Therapy
I fell in love with this eye cream ever since trialling a free sample of it from Mecca. In effectiveness, it's second only to my Holy Grail, the La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift. But that's, like $400 for 20 ml which is why I only have samples of it! This Perricone MD one is much more affordable and has really improved my under eye area. It's firmer, smoother and (when I'm not laughing) you can barely see my fine lines. I've been using this morning and night, and will continue to do so, because I really love what it does for me.
Matrix Biolage Waterless Clean & Full Dry Shampoo*
I'm such a heavy user of dry shampoo, it's not even funny. I'm a Mother, so I'm busy a lot, and don't freak, but I only wash my hair once a week. It doesn't get super oily or anything, trust me if it was gross, I'd up it to twice a week, lol. Anyway, I've used a lot of different dry shampoos in my time, and this Biolage one is pretty damn good! It sprays a super-fine mist that doesn't go white on the hair, and it cleans up the roots nicely, whilst imparting a good amount of volume when you rub it in. And I'm always after volume, because my hair is so fine and lank without product. This does smell a bit funny, but I totally forgive it that, given the results this dry shampoo gives.
Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette
Do you ever get intimidated by expensive, hyped-up palettes? I bought the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette, but I'm kind of a bit scared of it? Like, what do I do? It's so professional, all the makeup gurus are using it! Aargh! Well the Maybelline The Nudes palette is just easy, fuss-free and completely non-intimidating. I use it if I'm in a rush because you can't really stuff up with it. I enjoy the neutral, earthy shades, I know what I'm doing and it's just not scary, you know?
