This month I have five favourite products to share that I have been loving using recently, as well as two fail items that just didn't give the results I was hoping for.
1. NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette
I only trialed this palette briefly when it first arrived as it was just before I was moving house, and then I kind of forgot about it and started using my MAC contour palette instead. I found it again this month and have been reaching for it a heap, I love the contour shade in this palette and feel like
2. Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder
I've been reaching for this banana powder to help brighten my tired mum eyes this month, anything that is going to help brighten my face after being awake all hours with a newborn! I have had this sitting around for a while now, and so glad I'm finally putting it to use.
3. MAC Prep+Prime Fix+
A product that is nothing new at all, but one I've been depending on this month! I've been using this to refresh my face with and without makeup, to add moisture into my skin and blend my foundation as well as the usual uses of intensifying eyeshadows and highlights.
4. MAC Boldly Bare Lipliner
I haven't been wearing any dramatic makeup this month at all, but I have been loving this lipliner in Boldly Bare to add a natural colour to my lips. It's the perfect shade to still look natural with minimal makeup,
5. Chi Chi Viva La Diva Lipstick in Sex Bomb
This has been my go to lipstick shade recently, it is one of my favourite picks for a colour to brighten up my face without being too dramatic and having to worry about it still looking good if I don't have time to touchup.
1. Essence Lash Princess Mascara
I've heard so many people loving Essence mascaras, but honestly I hated this one! I used it once and didn't bother again - the formula was super watery so it smudged everywhere, and added no length or definition to my lashes at all.
2. Sleek Eye Dust in Dirty
I was super disappointed in this loose pigment from sleek, considering their eyeshadows are such good value for money. Even when used with fix+ I struggled to get a decent colour pay off, and found it was super hard to blend with so much fallout.
