Time for the October Favourites. Its getting cold outside and my current fav’s are reflecting that really. I like to inject a little colour into the cold weather and still have a radiant face. My skin does dry up a bit in winter as well.
I love this creamy formula. I wear the liquid version in the summer and i wasn’t over awed with the latest powder just released. This compact offers a medium coverage and is much creamier and richer in consistency. Ideal for the winter and when my skin dries up. I also still manage to have problem skin in the winter and this offers great coverage. No fragrance and doesn’t highlight any lines on the face.
2. MAC Match Master Concealer, 1.5.
Am i in love with this concealer! It is ideal for under the eye and for blemishes. I still love the cult studio finish concealer for heavier blemishes; however, this one is great because it comes n a stick form and is very soft and creamy in texture and blends easily. Ideal for dark circles. It has no fragrance either making it great for my sensitive skin and isn’t heavy or drying.
3. Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner, Scotch.
This eyeliner stylo is lovely. I like it as much as my Chanel ones. It’s a golden brown shade with golden micro glitter. Lovely under the eye and as an eyeliner around the eye too. Gives a warm colour, ideal for blue eyes and a hint of sparkle, great for cold dark days. Once it sets, it stays put and glides across the eye smoothly without dragging. Available in other shades.
4. Nivea Lip Butter, Blueberry Blush.
I love all Nivea lip butters. They are fab for protecting the lips now the colder weather is here. This one has a lovely sweet, fruity fragrance and is a pale lilac in shade and offers a buttery feel to lips of course.
5. Dior Eyeliner Brush 24.
This is probably the best eyeliner brush i own. I use it all the time and it deserve’s a mention.
Often high end brushes get a bad rap on You Tube and Blogs and Dior is no exception. I would like to point out though that this brush is fantastic. It offers precise lining with minimal effort and can also be used to smudge out too. Quick and effortless for the unsteady hand, as mine is.
The bristles are soft, yet sturdy and made with natural hair and the handle is made from wood and quite ergonomic. The only thing is, it’s not available to purchase in store. It has to be bought online. There is one in the current brush sets available in store though.
6. MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcreme, Dirty Blonde.
Full review here. I haven’t stopped using this since i bought it. Great staying power and natural shade.
Sorry this one was limited edition from, The Chanel Élats du Soir Holiday collection 2012. The Chanel Loose face powders are beautifully milled to give the lightest dusting on the face without the nearest hint of caking. This one is a lovely pale beige with the tiniest of golden micro shimmer. I use it on the tops of my cheekbones. Lovely!
8. Chanel Coco Shine Intense Lip Shine, 81 Fiction.
Mentioned in a few fav posts, it still tops my list for being the most perfect Autumn/Winter lip shade. A deep berry with an intense shine and is hydrating to the lips all in one lipstick. Ironically; Chanel released this as a Spring shade.
What are your Halloween favourites? Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)
