As you know, I don't feature monthly favourites on the blog these days because they just became a bit tedious for me, but every now and then I like to tell you about products that have really stood out to me and are consistent in my routine so today I'm doing just that!
Natasha Denona Face Glow Primer: I fell back in love with this primer when I rediscovered it recently and wondered why I ever put it down! It hydrates the skin but not in a greasy way and the texture is almost mousse-like, so it really melts into the skin. I find that no matter what foundation I use, it pairs beautifully with this primer and just glides on perfectly, without sinking into any fine lines. It also extends the wear time and ensures that my foundation does not budge until I am removing it at night. It's such a shame that Beauty Bay no longer stocks Natasha Denona but you can order it from Sephora.
Nars Radiant Longwear foundation: I reviewed this foundation here and had to include it because it's the only foundation that I have been reaching for since I bought it. The light texture makes it perfect for every day wear and the coverage is perfect for me - medium, but I like that I can build it up, if necessary. The finish really is radiant and it doesn't highlight fine lines or emphasize pores at all. An all round winner!
Stila Magnificent Metals Liquid Eyeshadow in Rose Gold Retro: I got this in a mini set from Sephora after loving the last set so much. This particular shade is rose gold in colour (as the name suggests!) but it doesn't have a lot glitter in it - it dries down to a metallic shadow. It applies so easily, doesn't flake or crumble and is really long-lasting on the lids. The trio set is priced at $25, which is really reasonable!
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Blush: This is another product that I reviewed very recently (post here) so I won't go into too much detail. What you need to know is that the bronze shade is very flattering - neither too warm nor grey - perfect for a gentle contour and the blush is a flattering pink with a hint of coral. The result of using both is a fresh, youthful look. WIN ONE HERE!
Armani Eccentrico Mascara: My brother gave me this as part of my Christmas present (he may have had some help! lol!) and it has seriously impressed me. I've been asked a few times if I'm wearing false lashes when I wear this because it gives a lot of volume and curl to the lashes. It ticks all of the boxes for me - is very black, doesn't smudge, doesn't flake, adds volume and gives the dramatic, false lash effect. It's pricey but worth it!
