I’ve some wonderful new additions this month and a marvellous rediscoveries. This month I bought new skin care, I repurchased the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm*, this is a great evening cleanser, removing all traces of makeup and leaving my skin lovely & soft. I’ve been trying out the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel* in the mornings. I use a pea sized amount, it goes from being a gel to an oil texture when it’s warmed up. I brought both with me while I was tripping about and they helped keep my skin clear and so lovely and soft.
I repurchased the Dior Skin Nude* foundation in 010 Ivory, I use this on most days. It has been great throughout the summer, it gives a medium coverage and it leaves my skin looking healthy, allowing my freckles to show through. For lips it’s been all about the lipstick. I picked up Tantalize Titiller from Covergirl, this has lay forgotten for far too long. It’s a creamy blue toned pick that adds just a nice touch of colour. From bareMinerals I have a fantastic coral, Light It Up. This is really pigmented adn wears well throughout the day, leaving a bit of a stain. Another pink is from Esteé Lauder Pure Colour Envy lipstick line, Powerful. This is more of a mid-toned pink, again very wearable, very creamy and easy to reapply. It’s always worth going through our lipstick stash, you never know what you might find.
I rediscovered the Jordana 12Hr Made To Last eyeliners. I needed a nice charcoal and found Charcoal Definition, which is quite a dark grey, taupe with some glitter running through it. I’ve used it repeatedly this month, they’re all pigmented and apply really nicely, without tugging on my eyelid. I like to wear these smudged out, with just mascara on days when I’m keeping it simple. Once it sets, it stays in place all day so I would recommend applying one eye at a time and smudging it out.
I’ve been loving Green Meadow this month for my nails. It’s from the Barry M Silk Collection and it’s a wonderful iridescent mint, which is fully opaque in two coats. This lasts well on the nails and it matches my hair! So win all round 🙂
