This will be my first 'proper' beauty post. I say proper in the sense that it actually contains make-up-y bits and pieces, but it is by no means written properly as I don't really know what I'm doing. This post is about some beauty bits that I have been loving the past few months.
The Rimmel Stay Matte foundation. I've loved the powder for quite a while so I decided to buy the matching foundation as the summer was on it's way. I have an oily face so anything that claims to mattify the complexion is a winner for me. Before I bought it I went to look at some reviews and most of them were positive so I went ahead and bought it. I'm so glad I did! It is a mousse consistency and it is a light/medium coverage. For me it works wonders: it mattifies and was long lasting. This will be my most used base product for the summertime.
The Dainty Doll mascara and eyeliner duo. The mascara is the product that has been on my lashes nearly everyday. This mascara is very natural as it's a brown mascara instead of a black one. It's not the most volumising or the most lenghtening but that wasn't what I was looking for. So this is a natural, made for pale girls mascara.
The Essence longlasting lipstick in 07, natural beauty. This is the first nude-ish lipstick that I've ever owned. I really wanted an everyday, easy to wear lipstick, and I immediately thought of Mac's Cream Cup but I just couldn't justify paying €18 for a lipstick just yet. I didn't know if a colour like this would suit me so I decided to buy a cheaper, drugstore one. So glad I did! I fell in love at first application. It's a 'your lips but better' kind of colour that looks natural and effortless. I'm not daring enough to wear a bright red out just yet so this is a good way to start wearing lipstick out and about.It applies wonderfully and it has an amazing colour pay-off And even better it was only €2.40.
The Barry M Gelly High-shine nailpaint in blueberry. Wonderful application, long lasting and the shade is just stunning. A powdery blue colour that is lovely for summer. There really isn't much more to say about this product, just that I really love it.
The Inecto Pure Coconut hair serum. My hair is long, frizzy and very dry so I need all the help I can get. This serum does the job for me. It isn't a magic product but it has tamed my hair. I just pop in on my toweldried hair after a shower and voila. It can be applied on dry hair to tame the frizz even more.
So this concludes my latest love its. Let me know if there are some things that I really need to give a try!
