Over the past few weeks I've been trying to reign in my spending in order to save up a little bit for the Sephora VIB Sale. I'm not sure how successful I was, but in that time I was able to fall back in love with quite a few bits in my collection. I really need to rotate my daily makeup drawers more often so I don't let things fall by the wayside so much.
It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream | This is my go-to cold weather base at the moment. The heating being turned on just makes my skin so splotchy and red, so I reach for higher coverage bases. I love this CC Cream because it feels so lightweight on the skin but gives such great coverage. It's getting tougher and tougher to squeeze some out of the pump, so I think a repurchase may be on the cards soon.
Urban Decay Naked2 Basics Palette | I've recently been using the new Naked Ultimate Basics Palette (review) for awhile now, and it's made me fall back in love with one of the original basics palette. The cool shades in the new palette pull quite plummy, so on days I want something truly neutral I've been going for the Naked2 Basics. It's full of the prettiest cool brown shades that put together such a chic look.
NARS Laguna Liquid Bronzer | I was obsessed with this at the beginning of the summer, and I have no idea why I stopped using it. It looks so natural on the skin, even when I'm at my palest (though let's be real I'm probably the same shade of snow white all year round), and I love how the liquid formula adds such a luminous sheen. This is definitely going to come in handy in the cooler months as I try to not look like a ghost.
Clinique Cheek Pop Blush, 'Nude Pop' | The Cheek Pop blushes are some of my favorite blushes, and not just because of the adorable flower-shape of the powder. This is quite a creamy powder that blends effortlessly over the skin. The shade Nude Pop is the perfect no-blush blush, adding a beautiful hint of definition and color without being over the top.
Estee Lauder Genuine Glow Blushing Creme, Sweet Cheeks* | Another cheek product I've been loving again lately, the Blushing Creme stick is my go-to for a flushed cheek. It adds a really natural pink flush to the cheeks that looks like you've just come in from the cold. It really makes the skin look more youthful and radiant.
Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder, 'Highlight' | How could I forget about the beauty of this highlighter? If you want pure, lit-from-within luminescence, you have to try this. I love a pop of metallic sheen on the skin as much as the next person, but lately (perhaps because I've been wearing more blush) I've been opting for something a little more natural. This sits on the skin beautifully and adds radiance to the face.
Colourpop Matte X Lippie Stix, 'Cami' & 'Pillow Talk' | My sister just got Colourpop's new set of Matte X Lippie Stix, and she was texting me about how much she loved the formula. It really inspired me to pull my two shades out of the shadows, and I've fallen in love all over again. It's a really weightless formula that just glides right onto the lips and doesn't feel drying at all. The shade Cami is a perfect fall color - it's a mauve shade that's not quite nude and not quite bold. Pillow Talk is a cool taupe-y brown shade that reads like a true brown on me. It really takes that 90s look to the next level.
