5 Friday Favourites #5

Wow, I have been neglecting my 5 Friday Favourites! It’s not that I don’t have any – somehow I just never remember to put them up. I’ve been on the move lately – taking some weekend trips as well as running about town meeting up with friends since it’s the holidays so I have been enjoying things that are convenient, travel-friendly or have more than one use.

The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer is a great cheek highlighter for the face, and can be used as a brow bone shade as well. I’ve been loving the Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment – a nice soft rose shade on the lips and provides moisture at the same time. Covergirl CG Smoothers Concealer in 710 Light works well when you’re short on time or have forgotten to bring foundation along; in a pinch I just swipe a couple of strokes everywhere, blend it in, and that’s all I need.

I’ve been bringing around this mini tube of Benefit Stay Don’t Stray – the itty bitty size is just too cute but of course it’s not just about the packaging; it works really well at keeping eyeshadow in place. The Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Gloss in Belle looks so beautiful on the lips; it’s not too sticky, feels comfortable on and easy to throw on towards the end of the day to vamp up your look for the night.

So that’s 5 items that I have been absolutely loving lately; what about you?

5 Friday Favourites #4

It’s been a while since I did my 5 Friday Favourites… and they have changed up quite a bit since my last one! Of course, my stash has also increased a lot so I have a lot more to choose from!

Healgel Intensive has been helping my skin heal so much faster than before and my only regret now is that I didn’t try it sooner. MAC Ring of Saturn Mineralize Blush is a limited edition blush that I recently rediscovered; this gives a bright pop of colour with a beautiful sheen. The Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in 234 Poesie looks like just any other neutral eyeshadow but man it looks stunning applied on the lids, and application is effortless. Had the Bourjois Bronzing Primer for the longest time but I only rediscovered cream base products as my skin is looking a lot better than usual; this makes contouring so easy and looks absolutely natural. Got the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm in a buy-one-get-one-free sale lately, and boy is it worth it; makes my lip feels so soft and smells incredible, it’s fast becoming my favourite nighttime lip balm.

So that’s 5 items that I have been absolutely loving lately; what about you?

5 Friday Favourites #3

Here’s another 5 items that I have been obsessed with lately…

Still in love with my Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No 7 in 208 The Vamp – such a gorgeous palette with amazing payoff. // The Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 74 Ultra Rose is limited edition and looks scary in the pan, but a light dusting of it gives such a gorgeous flush. // The Chanel Rouge Allure in 39 Precious is a plummy shade that can be worn full on for a vampy look or sheered out for the day. // Orange/coral lips are not my usual choice, but the Lipstick Queen Endless Summer Lipstick in Stoked is so easy to wear and feels oh so comfortable on the lips. // Last but not least the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder is really lightweight, and not too powdery despite its “matte” name.

So here we are! What are your favourites these days?

5 Friday Favourites #2

It’s been a really long while since I did a Friday Favourites post – the last was in December last year! I noticed that I have been consistently using some items lately, and thought it would be great to do an update!

// Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation makes my skin looks better than it is, is affordable, and has really good staying power. // MAC LoveCloud Satin Powder Blush has been my go-to blush for perking up my face and taking the years off. // Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in Pale Barley is a repeat favourite; I’m still really loving it as a transition shade – it’s irreplaceable! // The Kiko Water Eyeshadow in 206 is gorgeous; great pigmentation and can be foiled to make it really shimmer. // The Dior Addict Lipstick in 553 Princess was an impulse buy that I did not regret; it’s sheer but gives a nice soft glossy pink tint to the lips and feels really comfortable. //

That’s all for my 5 Friday Favourites! What are you loving lately?

5 Friday Favourites #1

Top 5 Favourite Beauty Products for this week; I’ve been pulling some oldies out of my stash lately to play with since I have drastically reduced my beauty shopping and have fallen back in love with some of them.

// Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in Pale Barley has been a long time favourite, whether as a crease or transition shade, it’s beautiful. // MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 gives great coverage, is so creamy and long lasting, and the perfect shade for me at the moment. // Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait has been my go-to lip product for the past month, it feels so comfortable on the lips but give a really nice soft plump but natural look. // MAC MSFN in Light Plus never feels heavy on, and never looks powdery. // Loreal Super Liner Instant Impact Felt Liner makes drawing a cat eye so easy, even for a novice like me. //

And there we are with my 5 Friday Favourites! What are yours?
