I have so much make up, its partly passion and its partly just down to being a blogger, but one thing is for sure, as I try new things so often and find new favourites, old favourites get left behind, tucked away in my make up drawers. Today I decided to trawl through my collection and dig out a few old favourites for today’s look, which I wanted to be light and natural and quick (school runs really eat into my beautifying routine!).
Here’s what I dug out.
I did review this on my old blog but sadly the post has been lost somewhere along the way but I love this foundation. It’s been replaced by other foundations I like slightly more, but this is still a great foundation. It’s watery and thin to apply, it looks like it offers no coverage whatsoever, but when you apply it the finished effect is great. Coverage is as heavy as you want it, you can have it sheer, or build it up more for a heavier finish, I like it somewhere in the middle but love that it magically allows my skin to show through but still evens my skin tone and overs coverage for small blemishes (not that I’d ever skip concealer), but this is great stuff. It’s £14.50 and I would definitely recommend.
Next I dragged out the Clinique Almost Lipstick in Lovely Honey.
You can see my original post on these beautiful lipsticks here. These are beautiful sheer lipsticks that offer a sheer tint of colour and a beautiful moisturising balm like texture. The depth of colour depends on the shade worn and the colour of your lips, and I love how they moisturise without feeling greasy, I can’t bear a greasy feeling lipstick. Lovely Honey is a really natural pink shade on me. Beautiful. It looks like Black Honey is the only shade still available which is real shame but it is also lovely. They are £18 each.
Next is Bourjois Volume One Seconde Mascara.
My original post on this mascara is here, and you’ll see that I absolutely loved it but even then I was aware that things change! I do have a new favourite but I decided to drag this out of its home this morning and try it out and of course I remember why I loved it so much. Its a great, black mascara at a reasonable price and it makes my lashes look great. It’s £9.99.
Finally, I dug out the Clarins Multi-Blush Cream Blush in Candy.
The Clarins Multi-blush Cream Blushers are really magic. When you rub a finger into the pan, it feels like powder almost, and as though you are not picking up any product, but of course you are, and the same goes for application, it feels like applying nothing, you can blend them in with the lightest of touches for a lovely flush of colour. Candy is a lovely pink shade. They are £18.50 and lovely for days where you don’t wear finishing powder, although I must add they work very well on top of powder too.
Here’s how I look today, nothing exciting, but it has been lovely to dig out some old favourites! I must try to do it more often!
