What's on my Face #4

June 25, 2014

Since finishing uni, i've practically gone full time at my part time job which means that my appearance is still quite minimal mainly because I can't be bothered to make an effort when i'm on the early shifts but i've added a few new products into the rotation, and I thought i'd share my first thoughts before fully reviewing. 

Starting with the base, as always my Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer is the first product that I reach for to hide any bags under my eyes, and of course to cover any blemishes. I really need a new concealer, so if you guys have any recommendations leave them in the comments. As for foundation i've been using the L'oreal True Match Foundation and I love it! It's so light weight, it hardly feels like I have any product on my face but it also gives such a good coverage. The shade I picked up matches my skin tone so well also, so i'm really impressed with this one at the minute.

I've really been getting back into my Nars One Night Stand Palette as it's so handy first thing in the morning, as I can add a little amount of contour and blush in a matter of seconds. I'm really getting into using blusher again as it gives a lovely little pop to the complexion. I also really enjoy using my Nars Laguna Blush as it adds a lovely amount of golden glow to my cheeks, it has got to be my favourite Nars product. As always my brows are done with the HD Brows Kit, which I didn't photograph but that is never going to change. 

Onto the eyes, i've been getting back into my liquid eyeliner as I went off it for a little while. Of course i've been using my trusty Collection Fast Stroke Eyeliner, but i've also found that priming the eyelids has been helping it stay put really well throughout the day. I've been loving the Smashbox Photo Finish Eyelid Primer, it's great! As always, the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara has been another go to and this is almost dried up, so i'm definitely going to have to buy a full size. 

Lastly, in this months Birchbox I received the Yves Rocher Sheer Botanic Lipstick, which I was keen to try as it looked like a matte formula but it contains cherry oil said to moisturise the lips and i've been pleasantly surprised. It's quite a sheer coverage, but very build able. It does appear quite matte and wasn't as drying as usual matte finishes but it does still cling to dry patches, so a good scrub and frequent reapplying is a must. 

Have you been trying any new products?

  2. I know what you mean about keeping things minimal for those early work days. I've reverted to my basics: concealer, blush, and lipstick!
    Lovely picks, I definitely want to try some more Nars blushes. I wish that palette was still available As for concealer, I like the Nars radiant creamy concealer!
