Excuses, excuses… I know, I’m over two weeks late on this one, but better late than never, right?
Firstly, I’ve been reunited with an old flame. Benefit Porefessional is a primer I’ve previously owned and used up, and I’m over the moon I have it again. This primer is great for oily-skinned gals like myself and it really minimises pores and shine. Lust-worthy stuff.
A recent beauty purchase is the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover. This makes removing your nail varnish super easy; a quick rotation in the sponge within removes all traces of polish. Beware of glitter polishes though, this little tub doesn’t like any sparkle!
The newly launched Benefit Rockateur really has been my go-to blush this month. The subtle rose gold hue adds the perfect amount of colour for my daytime makeup, as well as giving a little bit of shimmer too. Lush!
I really do fail at applying eyeliner, but the NARS Eye Paint and the Laura Mercier Angled Eyeliner Brush create a fail-safe pairing. I’ve been using NARS Eye Paint in Mesopotamia, a dark brown colour which is a great alternative to black. It stays put all day but is easy to remove with my Bioderma.
Last month my skin went through a tough time, and I saw a fair few nasty spots. Nothing was budging them, so in the end I tried Quinoderm. This says it’s for acne, which I’ve never had, but it really worked wonders on the little blighters I had on my face. I saw results overnight and it didn’t dry my skin out at all.
I’ve really noticed a difference when using the Philosophy Miracle Worker Eye Cream. I know it’s difficult to get a gauge on how well eye creams are working, but the skin around my eyes really has felt different and looked more plump. I like how luxuriously thick the cream is and it sinks into the skin very quickly.
When it comes to eyeshadow, the key is in the blending. The Bobbi Brown Eye Blender Brush is fluffy, tapered and perfect at blending shadows, so I’ve been reaching for this almost every day. I might just invest in another one!
The final item on my favourites-list this month is the Shu Uemura S-Curler. A mini version of their iconic eyelash curler, the S-Curler is great for travelling with, and I think I prefer it for the precision.
