Hello everyone, here comes another month of favourites. This month’s top five products were quite a task to pick because I have been using and enjoying so many lately. Have been away most of this month and several of these items have been in my makeup bag throughout.
First up, I have the amazing NARS Happening Eye & Cheek Palette. It comes in a convenient, slim compact which is travel friendly. Eye colours in this palette can bring me from day to night, from natural neutral to sultry smoky. I wish the blush is something else other than Orgasm but it works wonderfully on me, so I ain’t complaining.
The prize for getting this palette is – I finally own a piece of Laguna, the most raved about NARS bronzing powder.
Have been in a hot pink nail polish craze recently and the Lancôme Rose Macaron Vernis In Love* is my pick. I love everything about it. The texture is smooth, colour is brilliant and its last power is good.
I hardly talk about mascaras because I always use it under my false eyelashes thus I won’t be able to fully justify if the formula is volumizing/lengthening or if the curl stays. But I would love to give this YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof Mascara* a shout out.
Because it’s waterproof, I experienced no smudging throughout the day. The wand is narrow enough to give my bottom lashes a fix – I forgot my trusty Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara and am so glad this came along in my bag. The formula is a little more difficult to remove with cleansing water, I use cleansing oil to do the job.
For the past month, I have been using lots of half false eyelashes, just for the ends of my lashes. I find this mascara holds the curl very well and has brilliant staying power – for over 8 hours on a hot humid day. Am impressed.
Tom Ford Lip Color in 07 Pink Dusk – a stunning colour for soft smoky eyes and it compliments The Happening palette a lot. Thoughts and look coming right up.
I brought along a sample of this REN Morrocan Rose Otto Body Wash during one of my recent travels, I am in love with the scent. I picked up the full size a week ago and I can’t wait to enjoy it every night. The scent doesn’t quite lingers but the entire bath room is filled with a mild blend of rose after a hot shower, nothing but love.
What are your favourites this month? Share with me below.
Thank you for looking.
I like the look of the NARS palette but I also wish the blush is something esle! So I didn’t get it in the end. This month, I am loving NARS light reflecting powder and Shu Uemura Tokyo lights (thanks to your gorgeous photos). 🙂
I am loving the NARS powder too!! So glad you like Tokyo Lights xx
I too have the YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara but not in the waterproof version. It is AMAZING! All I need is just 1 coat of mascara to make my lashes fuller whereas other mascaras will require at least 2-3 coats just to get the same effect. It is truly smudge proof too, and very very very easily washed off with warm water.
However the only peeve I have with it is that their burgundy (which is the color I got) looks like purple 😦 And the color does not show up on my lashes……. But other than that it is really fantastic and definitely a recommend!
Ok no wait there’s another thing.. It is very very wet….. A lot wetter than other mascaras. Have to be extra careful with application or it will end up all over your eyes. Was your waterproof version wet too?
Thank you for commenting 🙂
Looks like I need to try the non waterproof version too.. the waterproof formula ain’t too wet for application xx
OOO now I want The Happening! Can’t wait to see it on you!
It’s a super convenient palette 🙂 I am happy I have Laguna to play with now!!!
