Hello everyone, here comes the first issue of my top five monthly favourites. This series has been going on since 2010 and I create new layouts each year – do you like this new layout? It’s slightly louder and bears a magazine style. I have also added a little space bottom left for “beauty quote of the month”.
This month’s favourites are all over the place – no specific theme but they are indeed items I enjoy wearing a lot.
First up, we have the Shu Uemura Tokyo Lights Palette in 01 (reviewed here). Love the colours, texture and results from using this palette. Have been using it so much, I need to put it away so I can start trying other palettes. The shades are so wearable and work friendly – even the glittery shades provide a sheer wash of sparkles across my lids.
Chanel Joues Contraste in Fleur de Lotus is a gorgeous coral blush which brightens up my complexion instantly. This blush pairs very well with the eyeshadow palette above and a coral nude lip colour.
Have you tried the Burberry Lip Velvet? I am absolutely in love with the one I have – in 308 Pink Azalea. Thoughts and swatches will soon follow. Basically, I like how lightweight it feels on the lips – as if I am not wearing anything and it’s not drying at all.
I have been wearing lots of bright colours on my toe nails recently; and one of my favourites is Estée Lauder Absinthe* (reviewed here).
Last but not least, Laura Mercier Foundation Primer. Many thanks to Mag, who has kindly included a sample of this in my Christmas gift last year. I can’t remember which primer I tried from the brand before but I recall not liking it. This came as a surprise. I tested it out and immediately loved it.
It seems to smooth out my skin’s texture and foundation glides on so beautifully. I think it helps to reduce the appearance of pores too. I need a full size real soon.
What are your favourites this month? Share them with me below.
Thank you for looking.
Im using the Laura Mercier foundation primer and enjoying it very much 🙂
Thank you for sharing!!
I am very pleased with the results, really – I need to pick up a full size tomorrow =)
Loving Bobbi Brown’s Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer (perfect for SG’s weather!), YSL Faux Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara and Sleek’s Blush in Pumpkin 😉
Have also tried LM’s Foundation Primer – it’s really lightweight and glides on smoothly!
And also, how much does the Chanel blush retail for? 🙂 I have pink and orange blushes but not coral blushes. Do you think it is worth investing?
Thank you for sharing!!
I think Chanel JC retails for S$67 – check out Ultra Rose, it’s a gorgeous pink which you can wear it softly or loudly =)
