So I tweeted last night saying I might not do a favourites, but when I realised it was leap year, I was like.. as if I’m going to wait til 2016 to have a leap year post!
“But Yu!” you might ask, “why weren’t you going to do a favourites?” (lol I’m so cringe sometimes). Because, my lovely readers, I’ve just been so busy that I’ve literally been slapping on whatever the hell I feel like, and because I’ve been rotating eyeshadows everyday, I haven’t developed many favourites in that either. That being said, I had one very firm favourite and a few others I’ve been loving so I thought I’d do that – ALL IN THE NAME OF LEAP YEAR!
Yes, a handcream. This is the L’Occitane Hand Cream that I’ve been using for a good few months now and have absolutely adored from the start to the end. I slathered this on my hands when it first started getting cold and dry, I use this on my cuticles for a temporary fix, and I even used it on my face when it was incredibly dry in Australia (and my nose was peeling – not fun). In my honest opinion, this is a thicker, sweeter smelling, posher alternative to the Nivea Soft. So if you like the Nivea Soft, but think it’s a bit too thin, or want to treat yourself – this is the one to go for. As you can see, I’ve already bought a back up!
Now these are the bits and bobs that have impressed me in the latter half-ish of the month..
1. Bourjois Healthymix Serum Foundation
(First time I’ve ever noticed smaller pores resulting from a product, and it softens the look of the skin, and has evening-out sort of coverage. Tbh, only worn twice :P)
2. Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in 03
(My new favourite pink nude – absolutely gorgeous pigmentation, softness and lasting power. Great suggestion by the lovely Lisa.)
3. Stila Convertible Colour in Rose
(I’ll just shush and give you a link.)
4. ELF Complexion Perfection Powder
(This has the flaw of giving you a slightly lighter finish than you bargained for, but by god it gives you the softest looking skin EVER! Review here – although it’s been that long I’m slightly afraid I’ll disagree with myself now lol.)
5. MAC 130
(I’m hoping to do a review on this brush, but it’s my go-to now for loose and cream blushers. It gives such a gorgeous, perfect finish, it’s so incredibly handy, practical, and multi-tasking!)
6. MUA Great Lips Lip Balm*
(Somehow, I love this so much more than the Sleek Pout Polishes. This one has enough pigmentation to naturally nude out my lips, it’s surprisingly not sticky, the artificial vanilla scent isn’t as sickly as Sleek’s, and it surprisingly strangely moisturizes.. nothing like a balm though, more like if a creamy lipgloss and a balm had a baby!)
Sorry for the lack of video guys, but there was no way I was going to find time to do one 🙁 I hope you guys enjoyed it anyway, and please bare with me while I attempt to complete my degree and come out the other end still sane (or as sane as I was before :P).
