Recent Favorites 11.5.14

There really is no method to the madness when it comes to blogging for me. I don't have a schedule, I don't really stick to any particular titles... it is just a bit of what I fancy here + then with no real logic behind it. I don't know if I should start doing weekly or monthly favorites or if I should post most regularly... I don't know. I'm talking to myself here but I just looked through my recent posts over the past year + I didn't see any 'favorites' posts even though I used to do them all the time. So I thought I would do one! Wahey - she finally gets to the point.

I am definitely more of a grey/white/neutrals girl when it comes to nail polish (/everything) but there are a couple of bright colors by Essie that I absolutely love including this primary/electric blue shade. I just think it's quite interesting how vibrant it is without actually being a bright turquoise or something. 

I believe I saw Vivianna mention this in a video + when I interned at L'Oréal in the US this wasn't out (it still isn't out/might never be) so I was intrigued by it but I'm always interested in L'Oréal's new releases. I really like this as a primer because it blurs any imperfections + sits nicely underneath makeup. It also has a bit of a tint so it's an overall great product for perfecting the skin.

This was recommended to me by a friend + whenever I go back to it I am always surprised by how much volume it gives without any effort. If you like big, black, bold lashes then definitely give this a go. 

Hourglass Blush in Mood Exposure
This is the perfect radiant plum blush for the time of year. Although it is plummy it does have a bit of warm peachiness to it as well so it's great for adding a bit of warmth to the complexion.

Maybelline Coloursens Nude Lipstick in 'Tantalizing Taupe'
My previous post is all about this lipstick so click here to see that!

MAC Lip Liner in 'Boldly Bare'
I love a good nude lip liner + this one is a good'un. I find that MAC lip liners are really matte so they stay on really well + they do a really good range of nudes.

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer
I absolutely love this concealer for under the eyes because it is really light, non-cakey but it provides really good coverage which is great for someone like me who has really bluey tones.

Last but not least is an online London-based Scandinavian store which sells really nice homeware bits (including the rug that all these products are lying on). If you think you have similar taste to me then definitely check it out for some pretty household things. I'm currently eyeing up this tray...

  1. The L'oreal blur cream sounds really good. Hopefully it comes out soon here in Slovenia :)

  2. I'm obsessed with Hourglass' Mood Exposure blush too - I find it some how sculpts the cheek slightly, which is my only hope to combat sushi face (eeeep). That lip liner sounds really nice, I'm in the market for a goodun so maybe I'll hit up MAC. x

  3. I think I might be the only person who doesn't really like that Maybelline Concealer! I should give it a go more, I think, before I decide. Mood Exposure is such a lovely shade, and yes, I was quite surprised with the peachiness, too!

  4. That Essie nail polish is so gorgeous!! I really like the shade of the Maybelline Tantalizing Taupe lipstick, such great color for the fall! xx

  6. Mood Exposure is such a beautiful colour and I love the depth to it! The Essie polish is always on my wishlist as I have been looking for that perfect royal blue.

  7. I keep seeing the Hourglass blush pop up on people's blogs, and it's making me desperate to try this out!

  8. Ahh the Hourglass blush sounds divine! xx

  9. The Hourglass blush looks absolutely gorgeous!


  10. I've been wanting to try the Hourglass blushes for a while now! Look so lovely! xx
