I haven't written a monthly favourites post for a while but there's a couple of products that I've really enjoyed using in the past few weeks. The naked basics palette is a product I've mentioned before but its been a great investment, especially as I don't own the other urban decay naked palettes
Urban decay shadows are pigmented, long wearing and don't crease. Venus with naked 2 in the crease are my go to shades at the moment.
I've been giving the rimmel undercover shadow primer another go. Although I can get it to work on it own, when I apply a paint pot, such as nubile over the top and then apply my powder shadows, it works really well especially as paint pots on their own aren't enough to make my eye makeup last. UDPP used to be my favourite primer but I find it makes my shadows looks dry and crinkled so the rimmel primer is a much better option for me. I also really like Revlon colorstay liner crayon in brown - it doesn't drag and stays put. It twists up so a sharpener isn't needed!
I've been using MAC's strobe cream (review here) a lot lately. I find it work best mixed with foundation but I also like to apply it under my eyes, before concealer - it makes my eyes look brighter and refreshed!
On the lip front, I really like Laura Mercier lip glace in platinum. Its a clear lip gloss with shimmer, which catches the light to make lips look plumper.
My big skincare love of the past month is definitely the elemis pro-collagen cleansing balm. I haven't used elemis for a long time but I'm so impressed with this balm. Even though its an oily balm, my skin feels more balanced, softer and smoother. I apply it to my face, leave for a minute or two and remove with a muslin cloth. I only have a small travel size pot but I will definitely be buying the full size. It is pricey but I really like it so I feel its worth the money.
