After not being too keen on the Rimmel undercover eye primer I've reintroduced it into my routine. It doesn't work for me with powder shadows but under cream shadows it helps to keep my shadow in place all day. My most used eyeshadow recently has to be Burberry pale barley (swatched here). This shadow is easily the most pigmented and softest I've tried. I'm also a bit of a sucker for the packaging.
Blush wise I'm loving Illamasqua lover - a soft matte apricot. So far I've loved everything I've bought from Illamasqua and lover is no different. Its a very flattering shade that is extremely pigmented and long wearing. I've just picked up hussy which is a gorgeous shade too.
I mentioned The body shop honey bronze bronzing powder in this post and its a product I've been pretty much every day. It looks really natural and doesn't pull orange like a lot of bronzers do. For nails and lips I'm enjoying a double whammy of red tones. MAC Ablaze lipstick (reviewed here) is limited edition and a lovely red shade with slight orange tones. I don't own anything else like this shade so its nice to have in my makeup bag and even if I don't feel like wearing eye makeup I can put this on and it brightens my whole look. The China Glaze shade I'm currently rocking is make some noise - a bright orange coral. I like china glaze polishes on the whole as they're generally a good formula and not too expensive. You can also get them in UK now from beauty bay etc.
Whenever I get a few blemishes I always turn to Nip and Fab's spot fix as the gel formula feels light, without drying the skin out. This stuff really helps to reduce the redness and clear up blemishes quickly. One final product I need to mention this month is Real techniques eyeshadow brush which is one of my favourite eye brushes. Its small enough to apply colour to the crease as well as applying shadow to the lid. The brush is super soft and washes well. Its well worth buying!
