I don’t have many this month as I’ve been trying to curb my spending so I’ve been going through my collection and using a bit of everything. I decided this month that I don’t use my cream blushes enough. Actually I hardly ever use them so I decided I was going to use nothing but cream blush for the entire month. I only have four and do you know what? I’ve really been enjoying them! I don’t know why I didn’t use them more before. I have the Topshop Cream Blushes in Neon Rose and Pinch and Maybelline Dream Mouse Blushes in Dolly Pink and Peach Satin. Pinch gets a special mention as I’ve been using it as a blush and on my lips too!
My Rimmel Moisture Renew lipsticks get a mention too. I’ve been finding lipstick a little hard to wear recently as the cold weather plays havoc with my skin leaving my lips dry and flaky. These live up to their name and really do leave my lips feeling hydrated.
My new MAC palette is really my new favourite thing. I took out the divider and started depotting random shadows like a mad woman. There were a couple of casualties (my beloved NYX white frost *sob*) but I think I have the hang of it now. There are a load of MAC shadows, some NYX, No7, MUA and a Bourjois shadow in here. I bought magnets off eBay. It’s been so handy to have all these colours together.
My favourite actual makeup acquisition of the month has definitely been my little MAC Blue Brown pigment from the Smoky Thrill seekers set. It is such a gorgeous colour (reddish brown but reflects teal in some lights).
Marc Jacobs Lola is a perfume which will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s the perfume I wore on my wedding day! It’s a little heavier than what I would normally wear during the day in the warmer months but now with the seemingly perpetual darkness it feels just right. To me it’s feminine, classic and rich.
What have you been using a lot this month? Let me know in the comments! X
