Favourites | Top 5 April 2016
It’s time for favourites again.
Some of these products I may have done a review on previously, if so they will be linked at the end of the post.
So this month I’ve been loving my Skindinavia oil-controll setting spray for both locking my makeup into place, and for toning down the powdery look I sometimes get when I use too much powder.
This also helps with oil-controll, but it doesn’t keep me matte all day so my oils does start to peek through after a while, but I’ve noticed that I don’t look too shiny throughout the day when I use this, so I’ve really been loving this.
For foundation this month I’ve been using my MAC pro longwear foundation, but I’ve also been mixing it with other foundations I don’t like on their own, like the Urban Decay naked skin foundation.
But no matter if I use this on it’s own or mixed with something else, this stays on all day and it covers everything I need covered, so everytime I need something I can trust I reach for this.
My favorite highlight for this month has been the Wet n Wild to reflect shimmer palette in the shade ‘Rosè Champagne Glow’.
This is such a beautiful, cool-toned, pinky highlighter, it is not too glittery or chunky, but it gives such a beautiful glow, and you can build it up for more intensity if you wanted to do that.
Also it stays in place all day, so you don’t have to worry about it moving around or falling down onto your cheeks or anything.
Now, this particular one is from the Fergie Centerstage collection which I think was limited edition, but I found the same shades on the wet n wild website, the only difference is that the Fergie name isn’t on the packaging, and they have renamed them, so if you want this one it’s now called ‘I’ll Have A Cosmo’.
For lashes I’ve been keeping them natural looking this month.
Because I wear glasses I don’t always want my lashes to look too dramatic, but at the same time I want them to be long and separated, and the mascara I find works best for that is the L’atelier Maquillage Mascara KeraCare.
I got mine in a Glossybox a few months ago, and I’ve been using it ever since.
This separates and lenghtens my lashes perfectly, so if you like natural, everyday type looking lashes you should check this out.
And my last favorite for this month is the Smashbox Double Exposure Palette.
Now, I did just do a review on this, but I haven’t been able to put it down.
Like I said in my review I do have to pull out a transition shade, but the range of both warm and cool toned shadows that you get with this gives you so many options.
I’ve been mostly reaching for the warmer, more peachy shades in this, but they are all beautiful shades, and they do last all day without fading or creasing.
