probably a very late favourites post, but basically, I have been struggling to write up anything on my blog. Short story, I have been lacking sleep a lot and my exhausted body is now catching up with my mental health, which has led me to make a decision that I will need a break to recoup and get my act together. This will probably happen soon, but I will keep you all posted. Also, this will be a longer post than my usual, so grab some snacks and a drink and read away. 😀
Finally, better late than never, well, we are half way through April, which is my birthday month! Oh, I feel so old 🙁 , but who is counting?! Anyway, the past couple of months had me exploring new products and testing out some new brands and this post is more makeup than the last favourite post. If you did not get a chance to read my first 2016 January faves, you may read it here and I will also list all review links at the end.
Herbivore Blue Clay Spot Treatment Mask – I love this face mask even when I do not like the powdered version of face masks. This just makes my skin look and feel good, and I use it religiously about twice a week when AF pays me a visit and when she leaves me abruptly, sometimes. You can read my full review here.
Go-To Skincare Face Hero Face Oil – Everything I have tried from this brand, this facial oil does not disappoint. I actually have yet to be disappointed by anything from this brand. Seriously, everything from this brand, minus one I have yet to try is awesome sauce. I have never come across a brand that meets all my expectations ever, like what? YASS, you read it right, everything I have tried from this brand is like perfect and there are only 6 made from cruelty free and natural, Australian Owned skincare products. Simple right?
L’Oreal LA Palette Nude 2 Rose – I do not know if I have told you guys that I have
never really hardly used L’Oreal makeup (well, now that I think of it, the true match concealer) until this baby came into my hands. You can read my full review here. This palette is affordable for everyone who lives outside of Australia, but still affordable for us Aussies when you compare prices with UD’s Naked 3 Palette. It is also a nice little dupe for that other one and quiet frankly, very travel friendly and it has a full length mirror. Shock! You have to love this because the overseas version does not have a full length mirror (or maybe none at all) – the packaging is different. Nonetheless, I am sure the formula is the same, just marketed differently for us Aussies.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Lolita II – I adore the older twin, but this one is pretty hot right now. I never thought I would be rocking a terracotta coloured lipstick mid Autumn, but it brightens up my face and I do not mind the occasional pop of colour on a gloomy day. You can read up on my review here.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Bond Girl – I feel like this lipstick shade to me speaks of the 1990s, in particular when TLC’s Waterfall song comes to mind. Do not know why that song, but it does and when ever I wear this lipstick, I act a bit ghetto too! Plus, it smells like cocoa and if you love chocolate, the 90s and Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks, then you do not need to look anywhere else. You can read more on this product here.
Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer Neutral – For those days when I can not be bothered to conceal separately, this Clinique liquid foundation is really nice on my skin. I chose a lighter shade for my face as my neck is lighter than my face. I also have a darker shade pressed powder in the same name for when I may look a bit pale (highly unlikely) but to add a bit of colour if need be. The foundation keeps my skin looking fresh and conceals my redness, pores and gives me a nice glowy finish. Coverage is medium to full.
Rimmel Brow This Way Eyebrow Tint Medium Brown – I am all about exploring various brands of tinted eyebrow gels and you know I have been a big fan of Maybelline’s version so I thought I should try out Rimmel and I like it. It gives my brows a nice layer of tint, dries matte and not the kind that becomes crusty. No one likes crusty-crunchy brows, it is not cool. It can also be a bit messy, as a lot of product can come out all at once. So if you are new to this, you may want to wipe away the excess with a tissue or I just scrap the brow wand against the tube.
