As you know, I am not doing monthly favourites this year but when I have a collection of products that I am using repeatedly, I am sharing them with you and today's post is about five products that I am currently obsessed with! Some are old favourites, some new and one rediscovery.
Cover Fx Custom Enhancer Drops: How cute is this mini sample of the Cover Fx Drops? I was never particularly tempted to try these because I thought that they would be too metallic for my taste but then I got this sample with a Space NK order and it has been my favourite and most reached for highlighting product since I got it around 5 weeks ago! The shade I have is Moonlight, which is a warm, light gold colour. The beauty of these enhancer drops is that they can be used in a number of ways - mixed with primer, mixed with foundation or patted over foundation, which is my preferred method. The intensity can be built up by adding more drops but I find that one drop on each cheekbone is enough for my taste. I adore the luminous finish that these drops give and they don't highlight any fine lines - they just blend into the skin to give a very lit from within look. Because I have dry skin, I am loving the liquid formula and I am definitely going to buy the full size soon.
Real Techniques Buffing Brush: This is a rediscovery for me and as soon as I started using it, I remembered why I used to love it. I think it's a real shame that it isn't available to buy alone but the 5 brush set is a total bargain at £20. This brush literally buffs foundation into the skin seamlessly for a flawless finish. I have tried a lot of foundation brushes but this is by far my favourite.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation: This is an old favourite and combined with the Buffing Brush, I am loving the result. This foundation does everything I want a base product to do - it gives medium, buildable coverage, it doesn't settle into fine lines or pores, it is long-lasting, non-cakey and has a slightly luminous finish, but isn't overly glowy. It is my most repurchased foundation ever and sometimes I wonder why I bother buying others because I love this one so much!
Cover Fx Illuminating Setting Spray: This setting spray is amazing - it adds some glow to my base but it also acts brilliantly as a setting spray to keep my base looking perfect all day, which is no mean feat with the humid weather we've been having! It isn't quite as dewy as Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist but the staying power it gives is as good as Urban Decay setting sprays. A must have for summer.
Charlotte Tilbury Lost Cherry: Finally, I have been loving Lost Cherry - a lipstick that I only seem to wear when I have a tan as the pinky red suits me better with some colour in my cheeks. I adore this lipstick because although it is part of the Matte Revolution range, it isn't flat and actually makes my lips look plump. It is also very pigmented - a one sweep wonder and it isn't at all drying on the lips. If a full on red lip scares you, then you might like this.
Do you love any of these products? What are your current obsessions? I'd love to hear in the comments!
All products are bought by me, unless otherwise stated. In this case, the Real Techniques brush was sent to me. Opinion is always my own.
