Yes, I know it’s December. However, I thought I’d share some of the products I’ve been loving and favouring in the month of November.
So this layout might not win any awards, but it does do the trick. In terms of skincare, there are two products I’ve been especially fond of. The first is the Skinfood Tomato Sleep pack which has been my go-to solution for when I’ve just not had the time to obey my regular skincare routine.
The second is the TonyMoly hand creme in Apple which I keep on my bedside table and use whenever my hands feel dry. It smells like freshly cut apples and not the ‘apple flavoured candy’ many brands seem to be fond of when it comes to scents.
I’ve also really enjoyed the Bumble & bumble thickening shampoo this month. Tried a mini bottle when I went to Melbourne and picked up the full sized product some time later. With the exception of my hair occasionally feeling a bit dry, I’m really happy with this shampoo.
In terms of makeup, there are seven items I’ve found myself reaching for quite often. Firstly, the Too Faced Merry Macarons palette that I bought early in November. It’s a set of staple colours of the usual Too Faced quality and theme.
So, when it comes to the Kat von D Serpentina palette, I’ve actually not used all the shades. However, the shade called Hieroglyph is amazing. Without a primer, it’s a great bronze colour that works for everyday wear but if you add a primer, it stands out like a good metallic eyeshadow should. Works great with my new red hair and I find myself using it a lot.
For everyday & travel needs, I’ve been using the Smashbox Full Exposure travel sized palette. It’s just very convenient for most neutral looks.
We’ve also got the NYX BB creme in the shade 01 for day to day use since it’s a very very lightweight product, only downside is that it wears off if you don’t combine it with other products.
In regards to lips, I’ve only decided to add an Estee Lauder mini lipstick in the shade Envy since it’s flattering, convenient, and tends to go into my travel bag.
Another product I’ve been using almost every day is the good old Innisfree no sebum compact powder. It comes in both transparent and tinted variations, personally I tend to use the tinted one over a bb creme to help bring my face together colour wise. It also makes you look slightly less melted in the extreme heat.
Lastly, I’ve got a Bobbi Brown mascara simply called Smokey Eye Mascara in black. I got it for free and have been using it frequently since then. It’s quite similar to Too Faced’s Better Than Sex and Benefit’s They’re Real.
