It is officially March! Woke up this morning and wondering what I’ve been doing for the past 2 months of 2015. Time flies so incredibly fast and I’m just wishing it would slow down!
Anyway, had to post up my February favourites for you guys today! Here are some of the goodies that I have been enjoying the past month:
Morphe Brushes Jaclyn Hill Favourites Palette
I know this palette has been the hype the past few weeks and I am so glad that I managed to land my hands on it! I can’t put this palette down! The days where I have no idea what eye look to do, I’ll just grab this as all these shades are up my alley. Purps and warm toned neutrals? Yes ma’am. Morphe shadows have been blowing my mind recently and I am absolutely in love with them all. This is my fourth Morphe palette so far and I’m telling you, their eyeshadows are really good.
3CE Magic Touch Face Maker
I am really into base application now and contour/highlight products are catching my eye! I was just browsing Luxola the other day and I thought this would be an interesting product to try. It is a duo, providing a highlight and contour shade in a black compact case. I am loving the highligher – it is a gorgeous champagnish gold shade with subtle shimmer particles. This is a tad warmer and more golden than the Mary-Lou Manizer (and more subtle too). The contour shade is a cool toned brown which makes it great for contouring as the shadows on our face are naturally cooler in tone. However, the pigmentation of this isn’t the best and you have to build it up (quite a lot if you’re going for the glam mama look which I love). The powders do blend nicely and it is great for a natural everyday look, as well as for beginners!
3W Clinic Natural Makeup Powder
I love this powder to “cook” my undereye concealer to prevent creasing. Cooking is basically a technique where you apply tons of powder onto an area (usually under the eyes or contour line) using a wedge sponge and you leave the powder on for a while. I usually like to leave it for about 5 mins – then I’ll proceed to wipe off the excess powder using a large powder brush. This makes the “cooked” area really bright and sets the undereye concealer really nicely.
13rushes Contouring Brush
This brush makes getting that sharp and clean contour really easy! Its synthetic bristles do pick up and deposit products nicely onto the skin. I just dip this brush into the product, angle it below my cheekbones, deposit the colour and the blend! This brush is slightly more precise than the Zoeva #109 Face Paint Brush due to its shorter bristles (giving you more control). The width of this brush is also slightly wider than that of the Zoeva one.
Wet N Wild Single Eyeshadow in Creme Brulee
I love me a good smokey eye and I always go to this shadow to help the blending process and to clean up the edges. This makes a lovely matte cream browbone highlight as well. Wet N Wild shadows are fantastic (except for some limited edition palettes) and this one doesn’t disappoint when it comes to pigmentation and formulation as well.
Vichy Normaderm Tri-Active Moisturiser
I have extremely sensitive skin so I am always nervous to try out new moisturisers. This one, hands down, is the best moisturiser I’ve tried out so far. The texture of this moisturiser is light (great for hot weather in Singapore and oily skin lads!) and it blends really easily. It doesn’t leave a tacky feeling on the skin after either. Despite its light texture, it hydrates my skin really well. Lastly, it didn’t break my out at all and my skin is looking clear recently. Sold. Gonna keep repurchasing this.
Alright, that’s it for me! I always love trying out new things and it is always difficult for me to pick out a few favourites each month! Hope you enjoyed reading this!
Hope March will be wonderful for you! Thanks for dropping by!
