October is almost over so I really wanted to talk about some of my favourite products for the month.
My makeup purchase have been a bit lax for the last few months but I spent on the things that I really wanted (while of course restocking things that I really needed).
| Huda Beauty: Desert Dusk Palette |
Beauty Influencers have came out with this whole “Anti-Haul” idea and while I understand why it may be a great idea for some I think it can really impact your own opinion. Huda Beauty has been on a lot of Anti-Haul videos (along with KKW….we’ve all heard the drama) but I really think that Huda Beauty products don’t get enough love. Yes I do think that her palettes are VERY expensive but the colour pay off and the beautiful colour palette make me forget about it pretty quickly.
The shimmer toppers are beautiful accents. I’ve tried every colour in this palette and I found it very easy to use them. The creamy formula is fantastic and the colours are extremely buildable so whether you want a lighter application or you wanna go full glam the Desert Dusk palette has you covered.
| Matte Lipsticks – Nudes |
I finally found my favourite nude lipsticks.
M.A.C. – Cold Hard Cash
I bought this lipstick in a M.A.C therapy session to soothe my overwhelmed soul. This colour is such an amazing brown perfectly pigmented and easy application. I prefer wearing my lipsticks with a liner and I find that I can use a lighter or darker liner and it creates a completely different but still flawless look.
Huda Beauty – Trendsetter/Venus
These two are my go to pinky nude lippies. I find myself blending these two pretty often. I’ll start with Venus which is much more muted on me and then go in with Trendsetter and use it in the centre of my lips to give a bit more dimension. When I wear these on their own I still like to use a liner, although I do find that I can wear venus pretty easily without one. Theses lippies have survived a messy meal, sweaty dancing, drinks with the girls and that was all in one night. I didn’t have to reapply and my lips didn’t feel at all dehydrated or crusty.
| Liner Love : M.A.C. – Cork |
Liners are an essential part of my lipstick application but Cork by M.A.C. has been my go to wether I wear it with a lippie or a wear it on it’s own. Cork has become my favourite liner to use with most of my brown or lighter toned nudes.
| Masks : Boscia Charcoal Pure Pudding |
Boscia has a lot of fantastic products and I’ve tried a large variety of them but this is the one that will stick with me. I love how tight my skin feels after I use this mask and I also love the fact that it pulls a lot of extra oils out of my skin. I, like many others, have oily combination skin so I am pretty wary about what kind of things I put on my face. I’ve mixed this mask in with my regular skin care routine and it has really upped my skin game. Having to mix the white and black charcoal seemed like such a huge deal when I first bought it but it’s not a problem to apply at all and wash off is a breeze. I will say the first time I used the mask my skin did tingle a ton but I didn’t have any harsh reactions and when I use the mask now the tingling is a lot less noticeable.
Hope you enjoyed the read. Let me know what some of your favourites were this month 🙂
