Here are a few of my favourite new purchases I’ve been using daily:
Clockwise from Top Right:
Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette – I’ve been coveting this palette for months now after discovering it on ViviannaDoesMakeup‘s YouTube Channel. It truly is a universally flattering warm toned palette. These are colours I love to wear all year round. They are so highly pigmented, with a buttery texture for easy blendabilty.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation – Sali Hughes, a Beauty Editor based in the UK highly regards this as one of the best foundations on the market. It’s a medium/full, buildable coverage foundation. I’d say it’s a demi-matte foundation. However, it can become dewy if mixed with moisturizer and applied with fingers or a Beauty Blender.
Creates a flawless finish but the skin still looks like fresh skin. I like when I can still see my light freckles on my nose
Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil – This. Stuff. Is. Queen. This is the bronzer I’ve been waiting for all my life. IT SMELLS LIKE CHOCOLATE! It’s a light/medium matte bronzer, which is perfect for fair skinned peeps like myself. It’s so finely milled so it won’t create a patchy application. uuuuuuuuuughsogooooood.
Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer – I’ve finally found the perfect under eye concealer that I don’t need to powder! It’s a very concentrated, full coverage, creamy concealer that sets on it’s own. With hydrating properties from the maracuja oil, it’s very moisturizing – especially for the undereye area. GREAT STUFF
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid – A new January launch by Maybelline. This liquid lip colour sets matte but feels so velvety and hydrating. It’s also super long lasting. I chose the colour 30 Orange Shot.
Saje Rose Hydrating Euphoric Mist – Saje is all the rage. I love spraying this mist when I need a refreshing boost, after I wash my face, before I apply makeup and after makeup application. It’s a great setting spray and smells so good.
