2012 Favourites: Beauty
Real Techniques Core Collection
Monnie got me these for my birthday in September and I’ve used at least one of them everyday since.
I don’t know if it’s common practice but I use the pointed foundation brush for cream shadows
Lovely ME:EX BB Cream SPF20
I don’t wear foundation often, but I do wear this every day in it’s place. I have to walk to the bus for work, and now that it’s summer I really appreciate the lightweight formula of this BB cream compared to other heavier ones I’ve tried and this one still has decent coverage.
Vice and Velvet Quiet Time Body Mousse
Reviewed here. The only thing about this is it’s limited edition and no longer made
Essence All Eyes on Me Mascara
I don’t wear mascara often (For a beauty blogger I don’t wear much makeup, do I?) but this one is only $3.95 so I don’t feel bad if I only wear it once or twice before it dries out. It’s a very dry formula, but doesn’t flake and lasts at least 6 hours.
Clinique Chubby Stick in Mighty Mimosa*
I got this for being one of the first 20 to purchase the Pout Perfect e-book, I didn’t think I’d ever use this colour as it’s not something I would have picked myself but I’ve used it nearly every day since I got it in November. It’s a slightly frosty orange pink on me, and lasts about 4 hours without bleeding which is better than the Chunky Cherry colour I also have.
Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum*
This has really improved my dark circles in just 3 months, you only need a tiny amount as it’s quite thin for an eye cream so it’s pretty good value at only $10
Makeup Store Peeling Mask
Despite being called a ‘peeling mask’ this is actually an exfoliator, it has really fine particles and really smoothes out the little bumps my temples that no one can see but really annoy me…
