My 2-months-and-a-bit-more Summer vacation has come to an end- I'm just feeling sad because I have school (LOL). The thought of projects, course-works and endless essays just doesn't seem to appeal to me.
I've discovered a lot of amazing products this summer- some old, some rediscovered, some new. I've been using these religiously (er yes, religiously) and I am still loving it for Fall, so until I find better versions of these I think I will stick to these for now.
Apivita Tonic Lotion with Honey & Orange:
I have combination skin, which means that no matter what time of the year, my T-zone goes crazy and not washing my face is definitely not an option. This toner is perfect because it really cleanses the extra gunk even after washing my face. It's not too drying and also leaves a really cooling sensation on my skin. I've been using this sample size for a good few weeks and there's still a lot left! I've been seeing good results on my skin- it's a lot clearer and less oily/ greasy, so definitely gonna purchase the full size. (as of now, I have purchased a full size. Will do a post/ video about it if requested.)
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer in Medium:
You've all heard about this. Beauty bloggers and YouTubers have been praising this product so so much and this is where the question "Is it WORTH the hype?" comes in. It certainly is because it wouldn't have made it into this post. I didn't get the hype initially but now I think I do because 1.) it is a drugstore product, which is 2.) cheap and highly affordable, also 3.) does a great job at covering up my zombie dark-eye circles. What more could I ask for?
Mac Prep & Prime pressed powder:
I've had and used the loose powder version of this and loved it. I bought this a good few months ago but never used it as I've totally forgotten about it. Currently I've been using this for setting my makeup because it is lightweight and doesn't give my foundation a so-called 'cakey' look.
Sigma flat top brush:
Now this is the product that I want to really talk about. This brush is amazing for the face makeup, and for me I think it has dual-purposes; you could use it to apply and blend your foundation in, or set your face makeup with pressed powder. I've been using this a lot lately and it makes everything so much easier! Also because it can be so multi-functional it means I can carry one less brush in my makeup bag whenever I travel!
Sigma does great brushes, so definitely go check it out HERE!
Maybelline Hypersharp liquid liner:
I actually used the non-waterproof version around 2-3 years ago. I thought it was nothing special so didn't repurchase it anymore. Maybelline released this waterproof version and I decided I should give it another go! Perfect for any type of eyeline looks and lately I've been loving the extended/ winged eyeliner look.
Revlon Colourstay gel envy:
Not really into dark colours these days- maybe during Autumn and Winter I'll get back into the burgundy trend, but not so soon. Big love to this colour, although it takes ages to dry!
So that's it for my Summer/ Fall Beauty Essentials. Farewell Summer 2015! 280 more days until the next one!
