My first post about monthly favorites, and I seriously couldn't decide which products to include, since there are so many that I want to share with you, favorites from previous months too, but I'll do it in my next monthly favorites posts.
So these are only few of the products that I enjoyed using this month.
First let's start with the 2 products that changed my whole foundation routine this month. Clinique Even Better foundation and Sigma Flat Top F80 brush. Clinique Even Better foundation is not a new foundation of mine, I've had it for more than 2 years, but for some weird reason I didn't like it, I thought the texture was too thick and the color too pink for me. But when I decided to try using it again, this time with Sigma F80 brush, I realised that all this time I was using it completely wrong, I was using too much that's why the color looked so pink on my face, you only need a bit and the Sigma F80 does the whole job, because it applies the foundation evenly on my face. A perfect combo!
The color I'm using in Even Better is the 03 Ivory, I'm usually a NC25 at Mac's Studio Fix Fluid and NC20 at Pro Longwear, but both are too yellow for me.
Too Faced Natural Eyeshadow Palette
I don't usually buy premade eyeshadow pallettes, I prefer to make my own, like Mac, because premade palettes always have a shade or two that I know I'll never use, but that's not the case with Too Faced Natural palette, all the shades are soooooo me!! I love neurals, it's what I always use (yeah I'm that boring!!) but I think they suit me best. The colors that I enjoy using the most from this palette are Heaven (browbone), Push Up (all over the lids) and Cocoa Puff (outer half and crease)
L'oreal Lash Architect 4D Black Lacquer mascara
It's not my HG mascara but it's a decent one, very black, not clumpy, gives great definition, the fibres helps a bit with the volume. I'm using it for 3 months now and it didn't dried up yet, it's as good as new. One negative though ,it smudges after a few hours on my lower lashlines.
Seventeen Supersmooth Waterproof eyeliner #06
I love love love Seventeen's Supersmooth Waterproof eyeliners. Best eyepencils that I've tried for a long time, and I've tried lots of them. They're waterproof indeed, with great staying power, they're smooth and don't hurt my lashlines ( Are you hearing Mac?????) The #06 is a dark matte brown with no red undertones, that they unfortunately discontinued, and I still haven't found a similar color from other brands.
Cheeks & Lips
Mac Fleurry Blush
One of Mac's best blushes EVER! But of course it had to be limited edition. Fleurry was released with Mac's Spring 2007 collection Strange Hybrid. It's the perfect peachy pink for NC20's and NC25s, and is a Frost. I don't usually like Mac's Frost blushes, but this one gives a really beautiful light sheen, that doesn't make you look like a discoball under sunlight.
YSL Rouge Pur Couture #06 Rouge Bergamasque
After a long search for the best "My Lips But Better" lipstick, YSL Pur Couture #06 won the battle. It's a light warm pink, not nude, with amazing texture, it's like you wear nothing on yous lips, and it's not drying at all. My favorite lipstick, that's all!
Bourjois Effet 3D gloss #05 Rose Hypothetic
In my opinion Bourjois has the best lipgloss texture, even from high end lipglosses like Dior,YSL and Chanel, a texture that is not too thick/sticky but also not watery. I only wish they had more colors. #05 Rose Hypothetic is a neutral pink, neither cool or warm, with silver shimmers, and it looks great on it's own or over any pink lipstick.
Avene Cleanance Gel Cleanser
The cleanser that changed my life in my early teens. Not just a favorite of this month but a favorite for 14 years! It saved me from bad acne that I had since I was 6, and even though I'm still acne prone, my skin has completely cleared up. I can't reccomend it enough to anyone that has acne problems or just acne prone skin, or even just oily skin.
Nivea AquaSensation Day Cream
For years now, I'm searching for a moisturizer that won't break me out, 80% of the ones that I've tried broke moe out ( yeah I'm that acne prone), and if they didn't, they completely dried out my skin. I decided to try this moisturizer when they had it on sale for only 6 euros. Finally a moisturizer that doesn't break me out, or irritates my skin! It also helps with dry patches that I have from break outs. Sometimes it makes me a little oily but that's OK, because I mostly use it at nightime, at daytime I use sunscreen.
Korres Yoghurt Mask
The past few months I had some problems with irritations, itchyness and dryness on my skin, but still oily at the same time. This mask really helped with the itchyness and the dryness without being too heavy. It's also a good mask for summetime, after long hours under the sun. Yoghurt does magic for sun irritations.
Chanel Chance Eau Tendre
I have this perfume for a year but I only like using it at springtime. Don't ask me to describe the scent because I'm really bad at describing scents, but I have to say that is really fresh and lightweight, with a hint of floral , I can't stand floral scents in general, they make me snizze all the time, but this one doesn't.
Sooo have you tried any of these products?? What were your favorites for this month? Let me know!
