Favorites | Top 5 August 2016
It’s time for my top 5 products of the month again, and as always I will link to full reviews at the end of post.
So, my first favorite this month is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer.
Now, if you saw my review on this you’d know that I didn’t really think it was worth the hype, because it did get a bit dry on my undereyes, and it didn’t really cover any of my blemishes that well, and I still think that it’s overhyped, but I have started using a richer eye cream, and that does help with the dryness so it’s not as bad.
And even though I still have a love-hate relationship with this concealer, I have been reaching for it a lot this month.
My second favorite this month is the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade.
For some reason I find that my brows look a lot softer when I use a pomade rather than a brow pencil, and since I have quite full brows to begin with, I find that the dipbrow works better for me when I fill in my brows, no matter if I want a soft look, or if I want a more defined brow.
And this stays in place all day without fading or smudging, so I do really love this product.
For my blush this month I’ve been loving the NYX HD Blush in the shade ‘Hamptons’.
This is more of a bright peachy-pink color when you swatch it, but once you apply it to the cheeks it gives such a beautiful, natural flush to the cheeks, and I do feel like it works with a lot of different skintones.
And this melts in to the skin so nicely, and I haven’t had any issues with it fading unevenly or looking patchy, and it’s very inexpencive, so I would recommend checking these out.
For my lips this month I’ve been using the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lip Pencil in the shade ‘Tiramisu’.
This is more of a peachy-brown-nude shade, and it’s a little deeper than the regular nudes you see all over the internet these days, but it’s so easy to use and the lasting power is amazing, especially for the price.
And, even though this is a wooden pencil, this is so creamy, and it glides on the lips so easily, so I definetly need more shades!
To top off the lipliner, I’ve been reaching for my MAC lipstick in the shade ‘Fast Play’ (Finish: Amplified).
Now, MAC describes this as a neutral pink shade, but on me it pulls alot more brown-nude ish, so I do think that it can pull a bit different on different skintones, but either way this is so so beautiful.
And also what I love about this is that when it ‘wears off’ throughout the day, you will still have a lot of color left on your lips, so it’s not something that you have to worry too much about, even though I always bring my lipstick with me for touch-ups.
So, what are some of your favorite products of the month? Let me know in the comments below.
