Well this feels weird..
I haven't blogged in over half a year so excuse me if I ramble on. I thought I'd ease myself in slowly with a favourite products of the month post.
Stila 'In the nude' palette. Yes it's looking a tad grubby but it has been getting a lot of love this month so I forgive myself. In the time I haven't been blogging I have probably bought, at most, 10 pieces of make up... mainly foundations, power, necessities if you will. This however was the only piece that I saw time and time again and just knew I'd end up having to buy it. Obviously I was right because I snapped it up on my 27573883 swatching sesh in boots. The shades are quite similar to Urban Decay's naked palette, but in my opinion they are much better, a lot softer, more pigmented and they 'blend like a dream'. At £27 it's not cheap, but as I use it a lot I don't really mind. My most used shade is........KITTEN (second on the top row) Everyone loves this shade, right? If you would like swatches, please just say in the comments and I will add them in :-).
Estee Lauder - Raspberry pop!, Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy, MAC Toxic tale, MAC Viva glam gaga (if you would like swatches just ask! :)
I've decided nudes don't suit me, they make me look ill which is never a good look. So I've been using a few of my brighter lippies dabbed on, with a similar shade lip gloss on top. Midnight cowboy is nice applied lightly in the centre of the bottom lip and it smells like candy canes. So yum! Viva glam gaga... I hated this for the longest time, now that I have a tan though, it works and I'm loving it.
Stila Matte bronzer. This has been stuffed to the back of my collection for yonks, recently dug it out and i have really enjoyed using it. Not too orange, blends nicely and looks natural!
Benefit They're real mascara. Okay, I lied, this was another product I had to have. I'm not really a fan of plastic brushes as I don't feel they do much but if I take my time with this one my lashes actually look amazing, really long and separated. Pretty expensive at £18 but definitely worth it!
Loreal super liner gloss - Now this is a biggy! I had never worn black eyeliner, it just looked wrong on me. I was bored one day and tried it out, weirdly I loved it and have been wearing it every day without fail. It is really easy to apply, doesn't transfer and only costs around £6-7 in boots and superdrug!
Garnier BB cream. I love this stuff, I've gone through 2 tubes! First things first, it smells gorgeous, really fresh and herbally. It offers a medium coverage which is what I like and it wears well. It can look
very shiny so wearing a powder over top is a must (for me!).
Hope you're all well and having a fab 2012 thus far
