It has been utterly too long! Work has been sucking the life out of me, I feel like my very essence is no more and work has drained my soul :(
Hopefully soon I will find my escape from work into a better path as I seem to be stuck, only the cliquey get to move on and I do not want to roll like that...
But I come to you begging forgiveness! I have been a little boring with my beauty, even wearing none at all at times. Please accept my deepest apologies with a half yearly favourites post and a Charity Ball FOTN(ight)...
So, I seem to be living in pale neutrals, peaches and corals. Even my nails love to be coated in corals, pale and neon... Although neon green is a love of mine lately! I want to blame that utterly delectable Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. All was well until I purchased that bad boy, since then I've been spiralling into a world of MFBB?! Well, nudes and neon go hand in hand right?
Oh well, enough life rantings and more makeup ramblings!
Bourjois CC Cream ~ #33 Rose Beige.
Seemingly an easy go-to for me now, a lot more matte than I expected. The colour is ever so slightly off, a teenie bit pink but easy to correct with powders. May get the Bronze to compare as I'm starting to catch the sun now!
YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat ~ BD50.
I have actually finished this bottle and in desperate need to replace. This foundation is utter perfection for me, love the finish, colour match and that it makes my skin look perfect. I have got to get another bottle already... Maybe in a shade lighter for winter too!
MAC Studio Fix Fluid ~ NC25.
As you can see, this is a bit too light for me atm. Need to grab a darker shade for mixing but dang do I love this! This foundation has been a makeup bag staple since I first applied it to my face.
NARS Blush ~ Deep Throat.
Chanel Joues Contraste ~ Espeigle.
Tarte Amazonian Blush ~ Magic.
I am grouping these guys together. Quite clearly I am addicted to coral toned blushes! The Tarte is relatively new, but I have to say I am quite impressed by this one (not to mention their darn bronzer which I finished).
Urban Decay ~ Naked 3.
Please, let me stop using this thing... I friggin love this palette. Words cannot even. I cannot even!
Catrice ~ Oh, it's Toffeeful! & Ooops... Nude did it again!
I am in love with these shadows, the texture and longevity has meant they never leave my bag. Only problem I have is that Catrice have discontinued Toffeeful. DISCONTINUED :( Let the hunt begin for all the back ups in the world.
Inglot Gel Liner ~ #79.
We all know I am partial to red winged liner, so how could I refuse this guy when visiting the Inglot concession in Gliwice? Of course I couldn't, I will most certainly be getting a few more of these when I next visit. My HG Essence (also discontinued) has now been replaced by a very smooth and creamy liner.
Not that I love liner or anything, I thought I'd give this a whirl. It seems to be smoother than Illamasqua's Sealing Gel. I am loving mixing it with MAC pigments and smearing across my lids.
Benefit They're Real mascara.
So I may have subbed to Birchbox UK last month, the Brazil themed box might of swayed me :) But this was part of it! I have to say, I am actually impressed as it gives me wonderfully full lashes. Just a bit sad that it seems very heavy incomparison to my trusty Rimmel.
MUFE Aqua Shadow ~ 20E Pearly Taupe.
A summer staple and such an easy product to use! I just smush onto lids, blend and done. 20E is for me, a cream form of WnW Nutty (which I seem to destroy all the time).
NYX Infinite Shadow Stick ~ Almond.
Sooo, this might be pretty much the same as the MUFE. Colour, texture & longevity... I love them both as they make life easy *shrugs* lol!
NARS Longer Than Life pencil ~ Rue Bonaparte.
This is the perfect nude pencil for my skintone, not only for my waterline but for creating a super sharp brow too!
Rimmel ScandalEyes mascara.
Ah, my trusty HG. This is the regular black version, I do favour the blackest shade as I have very dark hair but either way I swear by this stuff. Gives me full, voluminous lashes which I most certainly lack.
MUFE Aqua Brow ~ #40.
A recent purchase (also whilst in Poland), I was in desperate need of a replacement brow product as my WnW was dead. Not being one to prefer cream over powder for brows thought I should dabble in MUFE's offering. Ummm, so I kinda love it. Maybe a lot...
YSL Rouge Pur Couture ~ #52 Rosy Coral.
Yes, I found it!! FOTD to come... But geeee it sure is lovely.
Innisfree Vivid Tint Rouge ~ #9.
Since this fruity smelling, gel tint landed in my lap it has not left my handbag. I seem to wear this as my everyday lip colour, stains oh so beautifully too ♥
Blistex Intense Moisture.
I need to repurchase the Relief Cream... But in the meantime Intense Moisture has certainly helped with my dry cracking lips due to living in a climate controlled building.
Models Own Polish for Tans ~ Flip Flop & Shades.
So the coral love continues, only this time an injection of green. Gloriously bright green too! I am in love with these 2 shades, they really do compliment a tan. Will definitely be getting a few of the others.
Models Own Ice Neon polish ~ Pink Punch.
I already had Pink Punch, but could not resist to try the Ice formula which is more like a jelly quite frankly. Yet another neon coral to add to my collection...
OPI ~ Live.Love.Carnival.
Do I need another bright coral you ask? No. Yes. Maybe? Of course I had to grab this.
Essence Nails ~ Caring Nail Oil.
This was a spur of the moment purchase, but my cuticles are always so dry and I do find the smell of this oil quite soothing.
Well, so that was a fair bit of rambling! Does one top it off with a FOTN? Of course one does :)
This was from a few weeks ago, my workplace held a Charity Ball (tickets 25GBP with unlimited drinks? YES PLEASE) for the entire department. My makeup most certainly held up, next day however... I did not!
