Current Favorites #2

I'm not sure if I've mentioned this or not, but since we're working on eachothers faces during class, we don't wear makeup every morning. Which is very refreshing, and gives me plenty more time in the morning - however, it limits my blogging severely as I can only do FOTD/N's of what I'm wearing on the weekends or even test it out new things only during the weekends. Frustrating, yes, but I'll make things work, I promise.
However, the point of this post - makeup products I've been enjoying recently... The Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation is on my list of favorites at the moment because of how light it feels on the skin, and the way it glides on so easily! It has a medium coverage that is enough to cover my scars but still look like skin - which is what I want out of a foundation. Though the shade 55 is a touch lighter than I am at the moment, it still blends beautifully into my skin. I would highly recommend this to anyone who can get their hands on this.
Since its cold here, my skin has been getting a bit grey and dull looking, so my Bobbi Brown Bronzer has really been my go-to to warm things up a fair bit, though I was a bit skeptical about the red tones at first, I find it really helps here. Keeping with the colour theme, I've been loving the Clinique Cheek Pop in Berry Pop which is a berry pink - perfect for this transition to my first ever autumn. Though it does look more like blush and less like a natural flush on me, I find that the colour really helps bring out the natural warmth in my skin.
For my eyes, I've been enjoying two things in particular. One is the Estee Lauder Shadow Paint in Chained which is my first pick for effortless and easy eye makeup that still looks natural, while I've been reaching for the Clinique Eyeshadow in Black Honey other times. Black Honey is another more 'auntumn' colour thats really exciting for me to wear out.

I know this is fairly simple, but these are the bits and bobs I've been loving recently!
What are your favorites?


  1. I like the look of the Clinique Black Honey! While the Almost Lipstick didn't work out for me, this shade looks interesting!
