This weeks beauty choices have been a mixed bag. A base product I've returned to using is Becca's Radiant Skin Satin Finish Foundation.
I reviewed the Revlon Highlighting Palette in rose glow a few days ago (here) and its become a staple in my makeup bag. For daytime, I use it very lightly on the top of my cheekbones to add a little shimmer but it can be built up for a more intense glow for an evening look. Its a really good buy for £8.99.
Chunky lip pencils seem to be all the range at the moment. I picked up Rimmel's Colour Rush Balm in give me a cuddle in Feel Uniques January sale for just £2.99. I love the creamy texture and vanilla-ish scent. Pigmentation is good and it leaves a slight glossy finish. I don't think wear time is that great, as it starts to fade after around two hours but I don't find this shade drying. I'm not sure if the shade 'give me a cuddle' (a blue toned light pink) is the most flattering on my skintone but I'd like to pick up another shade in the range - they all look really wearable!
For skincare, I've been using the Organic Surge Overnight Sensation Night Cream*as my go to moisturiser. I really rate Organic Surge skincare anyway but this moisturiser is really hydrating without feeling greasy or heavy. My skin is on the dehydrated side at the moment due to the cold weather amongst other things but this night cream is helping to keep my skin balanced and soothed. I've also been using the No7 Soft and Soothed Gentle Toner a lot this week. Its so gentle and soothing on the skin, that its impossible not to love. Its such a bargain and again another underrated buy!
