I realise it is getting increasingly hard to do a monthly fave entry. For one thing, I have been trying my best to rotate my stash, so that I can enjoy all the new stuff which I got recently. I love all my Illamasqua blushes, they last on me the whole day, the colors are lovely, and they blend so well! Super pigmented products which you just need to use a tiny amount for a nice touch color on your cheeks. Secondly, June being a school holiday month for me, there were days which I went without makeup at all, and even if so, it's just foundation, brows and maybe some concealer. I also went to HK near the start of the month and got a bunch of new makeup from NARS and when I came back there was another bunch of nail polish, and Illamasqua stuff to play with. Which I am not complaining. I enjoy purchasing all my makeup, and using them.
I rambled about several items which I have been liking lately, click HERE if you miss that entry. Besides that, I must say I am really using most of my NARS stuff this month. From the blush, to eyeshadows and my cleansing routine. I like NARS Laguna for natural contouring of my cheeks, any of the blushes which I have, and also the Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.
In the last couple of days, I tried out a new foundation routine using existing products. I paired my NARS Sheer Glow with MUFE Super Matte Loose Powder. And the loose powder is the perfect finishing touch to the Sheer Glow. It makes my foundation lasts the WHOLE (humid) day, keeps it fresh and matte (esp after blotting), and just makes me like the Sheer Glow better -- I like it, but felt that it isn't that spectacular as everyone raved about. With the MUFE loose powder, it kind of 'transform' Sheer Glow into the product I wanted it to be---- not as heavy as Estee Lauder Double Wear, but still gives great long lasting coverage.
New Fave Foundation Routine!
And just a random LOTD which I did for the fun of it, featuring most of the products shown in this entry:
On my lips: MUFE 18C pencil, and YSL RV No30 Peach Faubourg, Cheeks NARS Mounia
That's all, hope you enjoyed this mid-week entry. I am looking forward to some shopping tomorrow (in particular, perfume!!) and who knows what else! Haha! Also loooking forward to the OCC lip tar shipment, and a few other stuff! Woots!
Thanks for looking, and share your faves too!
