Favourites | Top 5 March 2016
So, I thought that I’d change it up a bit today and write about my top 5 items for March instead of my regular product review.
Some of these I may have done a review on before, if so I’ll have a link to those products at the end of the post.
Since were going in to warmer months, my skin is getting more oily in my t-zone, and for that I have been loving my Rimmel Stay Matte powder.
I use this for setting my t-zone and also for touch ups throughout the day, and it works very well for that.
It keeps my skin looking matte for way longer than it would if I’d used a regular setting powder.
Now, I only use this in my oily areas, because I think it can look a bit dry if I use it all over, but it’s a good, inexpencive powder.
The only complaint I have is that it does have a very strong, fragrance smell to it when you first apply it, but it goes away in a few minutes.
For my lips I’ve been keeping it very simple this month with the MAC Lip Pencil in the shade ‘Dervish’.
This is a soft pinky-mauve shade that basicly gives you that “your lips but better” look, and I’ve just been filling in my entire lip with this, and than topped it off with a balm or a gloss, just so that it won’t be as drying, but either way it does last for quite some time, and I’ve really been enjoying it.
As for my eyes I’ve been keeping it simple as well.
For liner this month I’ve been totally in love with the NYX Matte Liquid Liner.
This is, so far, my all time favorite liquid liner because the applicator on this is so easy to control, and it’s so thin that it gives a very precise line, so this is perfect for those of us that are having a bit of a strugle getting that perfect liner on.
I also have to say that this does last all day, and it dryes down to a matte finish.
The only thing is that it is a bit hard to get off, but other than that it’s amazing.
Now, to add a little bit of definition to my eyes I’ve also been loving the NYX Hot Singles Eyeshadow in the shade ‘Stiletto’.
I do have a couple of other shades in this line and I don’t like those at all, but this particular one is more pigmented, and much easier to work with.
Now, I use this in, and a little bit above, my crease, just for that hint of definition (kind of as a trasition shade).
However, I have to mention that this isn’t very pigmented, but you can build it up a little bit.
Also, this is very powdery, and you can get a lot of fall out with this, but to me, since it’s so inexpencive, I don’t really mind that.
Lastly I wanted to talk about the Makeup Geek blush in the shade ‘Romance’.
This is a soft rose with gold shimmer, and it gives such a beautiful rosey glow to the cheeks, and i think that this is perfect for the spring/summer months.
This goes on so beautifully and it does last all day without getting patchy on me.
These are also very inexpencive, but you do have to order it online, and that can be kind of a drawback for some people, but it is worth it.
Also, you don’t really need to use a highlighter with this, because it does have shimmer in it, and that’s a bonus for all of us ‘lazy’ people that are looking for very easy, quick makeup products.
