Favorites | Top 5 January 2017
So, it’s time for the first favorites post of the year, and to be honest I haven’t really used much makeup this month, but I have had a few products that I’ve reached for consistently.
And as always I will link to any full reviews at the end of the post.
My first favorite this month is the Zoeva blush palettes. Now, I love these because they’re such smooth powders to work with. They’re not overly pigmented, but they’re pigmented enough, and they’re just over all easy to work with.
They do also last most of the day, so I enjoy these very much.
Next I have the MAC Pro Longwear foundation.
Now, this is one of my all time favorite foundations, and even though I try out a lot of other ones, I always come back to this.
Because it is a high coverage foundation, that I can easily sheer out if I feel like it, but I can also build it up, and I do love foundations that are easily controlable.
This month I’ve also ben reaching for the MAC Pro Longwear concealer.
Now, I never really got the hype around this concealer, and I still don’t think it’s a full coverage concealer, but I have loved it this month on top of my corrector.
And this is a very longwearing concealer, and I don’t really have any issues with it creasing or looking patchy, so this is what I’ve been reaching for.
Next I have the Loreal Infallible Fixing Mist.
And I love this because it sets my foundation beautifully, and because it does have some sort of a powder residue in it, I don’t feel the need to use as much powder as I normally do.
Also, this does make my makeup stay on looking fresh longer, and it also helps with oil-controll. At least a little bit, and for the price, I can’t really complain.
Lastly I have the Kicks Hydrating Primer.
Now, I never really thought I would reach for a hydrating primer, maybe on the outer parts of my face, but not all over, but I do really like it all over.
And even though it does keep my skin hydrated, it doesn’t make me greasy or oily, and it’s very lightweight as well.
However, I don’t think that you’ll be able to get this primer outside of Kicks (Scandinavia), but I do believe that it’s very similar to the Blue/Hydrating Smashbox Primer.
Please let me know what you’ve been loving throughout the month in the comments below.
