Current Faves | March 2013Tuesday, April 09, 2013
March was a boring month for me, makeup-wise. I used the same products over and over again. It wasn't until the end of the month that I started changing it up. So here's what I've been loving & using 85% of the time...
My favourite face makeup remover. It's gentle on the skin and works quickly. I also love the new "pump" on the 500ml bottles come with now. It's much easier to soak cotton pads.
Ps, did anyone else notice how they raised the price for the 500ml bottles? Last year it was only $30.
GARNIER BB CREAM for OILY / COMBINATION SKIN
If I had anything on my face this month, this was it. I love the new formula, it's much better for my skin than the original. It also doesn't have a strong scent like the original formula.
It has very light coverage (it won't cover up strong pigmentation) but it looks natural on and that's what I like about it. I have a post comparing both versions of the Garnier BB Cream in the works, so expect a more in depth review / comparison.
BIODERMA SÉBIUM PORE REFINER
If you have oily skin, this is definitely worth a try! My forehead has been a shiny mess lately and this pore refiner seems to be doing a great job at controlling my oil glands. It doesn't prevent oil all together, but it does hinder it. This also makes it a great primer!
I have been loving this blush! I love rediscovering things I already own. It's like shopping but better. Dallas is a pretty plum-brown shade with a little shimmer. It gives my cheeks a subtle glow. It is quite different from my go-to peach / corals, but I've been really loving it!
This lipstick is a chameleon! It seems so look different on everyone. Plumful resides with the purple family, but it's a rosy plum shade. It's a Lustre formula so it applies a little lighter than in the tube, but it is buildable, though. Sometimes it looks dark and vampy, other times it looks bright and rosy. Check out this post for swatches & how it looks on me.
I've been loving two brushes this past month. The Real Techniques Contour Brush and the Quo Professional Blush Brush. The RT Contour Brush is great for contouring and highlighting. It is synthetic so it's great for powders and creams. The Quo Blush Brush is fairly soft. The hairs are quite flexible and not too dense, which makes it great for really pigmented blushes.
Another month down! What were your favourites? x
