In the blink of an eye and the snap of a finger, November disappeared just like that and I know I am not the only one who thought that too. Can’t believe we are in our final month of 2016 but I can truly say that I am excited for the year to end, 2016 has been a roller coaster, but, a good one at that!
I’ve dipped into a lot of new goodies within the last couple of months / month and I thought I’d take advantage of sharing these great products with a monthly favourites post. Stay chic meninas.
L’Oreal True Match Foundation: W2 Light Ivory
No word of a lie, I discovered this product in high school and religiously used it for years. As many women do, we bounce around different foundations to see if our hidden holy grail is out there. I started using L’Oreal true match foundation within the last couple of months because I noticed that my skin started changing as the temperature got colder, and I am so thankful to have it back in my makeup collection. It is a bit pricey for a drug store foundation but a little goes a long way. I find that they carry an array of colour selection that can truly match your skin tone. It is a liquid foundation but it is not heavy and does not sport a strong scent at all. What I love the most about this foundation is that it feels light upon application so you can build it up pending on how much coverage you are looking to achieve.
Jordane Cosmetics: Peachy Keen Blush
I was excited when I grabbed this product at IMATS this year because I knew instantly that I wasn’t going to just use this as a blush. With most of my bronzers and blushes, I tend to give them a duo purpose and use them as eye shadows as well. As peach is the new neutral, I knew this was a must have. The product itself is pigmented, has a shimmer to it and has a lovely velvet feel to it.
Overnight Intensive Oil Repair + French Pink Clay Facial Scrub
I will discuss more in depth in my upcoming updated skincare routine how amazing these products are. Not only are they a Toronto based company but their products are filled with benefits that my skin has personally been loving. The Oil I use at least once a day, usually before bed and I use the facial scrub 3-4 times a week as it is not harsh. Stay tuned for more on these two products!
Royal and Langnickle Concealer Brush
I was complaining to Aggie about my makeup problems (what else is knew) and that I couldn’t find a perfect concealer brush to apply product under my eye. During our IMATS trip she picked out this beauty for me. It was only $5.00 and the best $5.00 I have ever spent in a while. Although it is a synthetic brush, the hairs are soft and don’t soak up product. The product you apply to this brush, evenly distributes onto your skin without leaving streaks.
Pink Fresh and Clean Body Mist
There is nothing I enjoy more than a soft mist or perfume smell. This mist from Pink is exactly what its name says, fresh and clean. It has a subtle smell but its notes of apple and lily really do burst through. A great item to have in your purse or gym bag.
NYX Intense Butter Gloss: Toasted Marshmallow + Stilla Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick: Patina
I have been loving these two colours for the Fall and I know they will be staples when Winter rolls around. The NYX Butter Gloss has a stickier consistency but is extremely pigmented and has a gorgeous gloss that really intensifies your lips. I cannot say enough about the Stilla liquid lipstick. The formula is creamy and different from what you would expect from a liquid lipstick. It does not crack, isn’t dry and will last all day.
Maybelline Facestudio Master Conceal: 20 Light
This is probably one of the best full coverage liquid concealers that I have used in a very long time. My under eye area tends to get dark or purple and this product hides it perfectly. The formula is hydrating so it does not give you a cakey look underneath your eyes or wherever you are hiding your blemishes.
Anastasia Beverly Hills: Illuminator Peach Nectar
This gorgeous illuminator can be used for both daytime and nighttime looks and for…you guessed it, an eye shadow ha. It is a great highlighter that instantly brightens your face and goes on smooth so it doesn’t leave blotchy noticeable patches on your face. I love the peach undertones and gold shimmer.
Hopefully I will test out more products in the month of December that I’ll be able to share in the new year. I am so happy that every now and then I find products that I genuinely adore and have the opportunity to share with you gals. Any products that you are loving and would want to recommend?
