MOST LOVED | July '15Wednesday, August 05, 2015
I realise that it is well into August but if you read this post you'll realise I've been a bit preoccupied and blogging has taken a back seat (certainly not by choice!) I can't break tradition however, so here are my Most Loved products from July.
Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation* | NZD $22.95 via. Beauty Bliss
In the past month Maybelline have been nailing it with all the new releases, this foundation being one of them. It's one of their cheaper foundations, and it's part of the Fit Me! range that originally had one foundation that gave a very dewy finish on the skin. That definitely wasn't going to be for me, but this formulation is spot on. I was sent the shade 120 Classic Ivory, which is a touch too dark for me currently so I went out and bought 115 Ivory (the lightest shade) and it matches my skin perfectly. It has medium coverage, sets down on the skin to a light matte finish and it wears so well throughout the day without settling into my pores or fine lines.
TheBalm Balm Dessert Bronzer/Blush* | NZD $29.00 via. Beauty Bliss
I love a good bronzer and this one has been a favourite of mine this past month. It's not totally matte, but it has a very light golden shimmer through it, which aids in the highlighting, sunkissed sorta look. The powder is very fine and blends well onto the skin with great pigmentation, and the packaging is so cute.
Australis Metallix Eyeshadow in Pearl Jammin' | NZD $12.00 via. Farmers
This is the third shadow I've bought from this range and it might just be my favourite. These have a very unqiue texture to them, similar to the Stila Magnificent Metals, in that it's creamy but also a bit flaky and extremely glittery. A primer is a must with these, and only a small amount is needed to create an amazing glittery metallic looking lid. I've used this a couple of times dab into the centre of the lid with a warm brown through the crease (it also works amazingly with the ZOEVA Cocoa Blend Palette, see below.)
Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow! in Mixed Berry | NZD $7.50 via. Beauty Bliss
I have nearly all of the scents and colours in the original Baby Lips, so when I saw these were coming out I knew I'd like them.For a balm type product they do have a good amount of pigmentation that shows on the lips, but it's nothing too full on. I'll probably buy the other three shades as well, considering they are such a good price (and I'm a hoarder...)
ZOEVA Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette* | NZD $28.00 [approx.] via. ZOEVA
As soon as I opened this palette I knew I was going to love it and to be honest I haven't been using much else this month! You can see a more detailed review with swatches of the shades here, but so far my favourite shades are Subtle Blend with Freshly Toasted through the crease - it's the perfect wintery eye combo.
