Elf Mineral Face Primer – This is a silicone based face primer, which is in a transparent gel form. It is non-oily and I find it effectively prepares your skin for the application of your foundation, giving your skin a smooth finish and helping your foundation stay on longer.

This is MUA single eye shadow in shade 13. It is a very deep purple colour which I have really loved using this month. It is very pigmented and can also be used as an eyeliner. This can also be used to create a fabulous smokey eye look. It’s a bargain costing only a pound.

Rimmel Volume Lipstick in Boost – I have had this lipstick for quite a while now, and have only just rediscovered it. It’s a lovely satin deep pink colour which is very pigmented and moisturising on the lips.

Kiko Glossy Eye Pencil – This is another rediscovered product which I had not been using, but have enjoyed using this month. It is very pigmented and gives a glossy sheen to your waterline or eye lids.

Benefit That Gal Brightening Face Primer – I have really loved using this, this month! When I am not using the Elf primer, I opt for this one which brightens your skin and provides a good base for your foundation. I think it does make my complexion glow.

This Week’s Favourites

21 Jan

This week, I have been getting re-acquainted with some of my favourite products. Brief description Clockwise from left:

Bobbi Brown Tinted Lip Balm in Citrus – This is a peachy-orange tinted balm which gives your lips a lovely subtle slightly shimmery colour and shine.

Benefit’s Benetint Lip and Cheek Stain – This gives a subtle deep pink colour to lips and cheeks.

Collection 2000 Shimmer Shades Blush in Blushalicious –  I realy love this blush, it gives cheeks a really nice subtle colour.

ELF Mineral Face Primer – A transparent primer which makes your skin feel smooth and poreless when applied. It makes the foundation application process easier and helps your foundation last longer.

Avon Colourtrend Kajal Stick in Black and Warm brown – This is a double ended eyeliner with black on one end and a dark brown on the other. I like this liner because it is very pigmented and lasts longer than other eyeliners I’ve used. I sometimes use the dark brown as a lipliner.

Revlon Colourstay 12 Hour Eyeshadow in Sable – A neutral brown satin shade which blends very well and does last long on the eyelids.
