MOST LOVED | February '18 - Urban Decay, Too Faced, Kiehls + The Body Shop - CassandraMyee


Hard to believe we are now into the third month of the year already! The past couple of months I haven't really been trying out too much in the beauty department, instead, I have been trying to use up things I already own. That's not to say I haven't tried a few new things that have become fast favourites.

The Body Shop Skin Defence Multi-Protection Essence SPF 50 PA++++*
I was sent this as a part of a lovely Christmas gift from The Body Shop NZ team and it came at the perfect time. This summer has been an intense one, so I have needed a really good SPF to wear daily and this has been my go-to. I have never found one that works really well under makeup, but this one is so lightweight and non-greasy that it sits under makeup so well. It is a milk to water essence with a very high SPF and also includes anti-oxidants, and red algae and vitamin C to brighten the skin. It has worked so well for me and will definitely be a staple product.

Kiehl's Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate with Vitamin C*
So it seems I have been all about the vitamin C products, and this new release from Kiehl's has become my serum of choice for the past month and a half. This is a serum with 12.5% Vitamin C inside to help visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and increases the skins radiance over time. As I am getting near to my 30s I do notice the fine lines creeping in and I am all about the preventative side of things and honestly, this has worked well so far. There hasn't been a dramatic reduction in these fine lines but I find my skin feels and looks a lot more even and brighter. The morning after applying this, my makeup seems to go on so much better. It's formulated for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin.

Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette
I have far too many palettes, they are definitely one of my favourite makeup items and I use eyeshadow daily so it's justified right...? I knew I was going to buy the new Chocolate Gold palette at some point, but on a visit to pick up my Beauty Loop box from Mecca Maxima, I also walked away with this as it was too beautiful to pass up! This is a stunning palette and great mix of shades inside that are all very usable and wearable. It is very shimmery and metallic, but there are a couple of good mattes to help blend everything together. I will have a more in-depth review with swatches up about this soon.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette
When I'm not using the Too Faced CG, I am reaching for this gorgeous palette from Urban Decay. My lovely boyfriend got this for me for Christmas (I picked it out), and I couldn't be happier with it. I love the UD shadows and these palettes never disappoint me - the Naked Heat is no different. I will also have a review up about this very soon.

Wet N Wild Proline P60 Large Powder Brush*
If you haven't seen my review on the new Proline Brushes from Wet N Wild, you should check it out now. These brushes are super gorgeous, very practical and so soft. They have synthetic bristles and are completely cruelty-free. Out of all of the brushes I have been using this one the most - it works well for powder but also works so well for bronzer (as you can see by the dirty brush!) I love how luxe these look, but they're very affordable for the quality.

What are some products that have been your favourites?
