It’s Favourites time again. I love to read favourites blog posts, and these are often the posts that inspire the most purchases.
The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Body Butter - I’ve long been a fan of The Body Shop’s body butters, they’re super hydrating and always have such lovely scents. This raspberry scent is by far my favourite! It’s sweet and tart all at once, and the scent lingers through the day.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Palette – I finally got my hands on this when it was made permanent, and Sephora starting stocking it on their website. It was definitely worth the wait, these powders are just so pretty and flattering on the skin. I’ve been using all 3 of them regularly and just love the look they give to my skin. Read my post about the palette here.
Sonia Kashuk Pearlescence Long Wear Creme Shadow in Quartz - I picked this cream eyeshadow while I was out running errands at Target. I love the Sonia Kashuk brushes, but haven’t tried much of their makeup. This is a lovely brown shimmery cream eyeshadow, that is most definitely long wearing. I love to use it by itself for a wash of colour across my lids.
The Face Shop Bright Eyes Modelling Gel Patch – I picked these up on my first ever trip to The Face Shop earlier this month, and am in love with them. They are as the name describes, gel eye patches that do an amazing job at hydrating my dry and tired under eyes. The best part is, at $4 a pack, you really can’t go wrong.
Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer in Radiant - This has become my go-to highlighter for my face. It’s got a lovely creamy consistency, which blends seamlessly with my makeup and just gives my face a subtle hint of light. I’ve tried my fair share of highlighting pens, both high and low end, and this is by far my favourite.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer – I’ve already written a whole post about how much I love this concealer (you can read it here), but still had to include it in my favourites, because it’s that good. It stays put all day, and covers my dark circles without flaking or settling into my fine lines. I’ve been mixing it with the Dream Lumi mentioned above, and combined they conceal and brighten beautifully.
Benefit BeneBalm - I was really excited to see that Benefit was releasing a line of tinted balms to go with their tints. They use to have a version of the Benetint balm in a jar, which I loved and was sad to see that they discontinued. I really like this balm. It’s a lovely moisturizing balm, that adds a sheer wash of red to the lips. I find that it stains the lips slightly, so even after the balm wears off, the colour stays behind.
Essence Kalinka Beauty Blush in East Side Story - This was my very first essence purchase, I was at a random Shoppers Drug Mart while travelling on business, and came across a display with all the Kalinka line. I tend to gravitate towards peach and coral blush shades, so I picked this up. It’s such a lovely peachy shade, that lasts throughout the day, and has a sheen to it, without being sparkly or glittery. I’m not sure if this collection is available anymore, but I will definitely be checking out their other products.
