Today, I need to get this monthly product post out; and as a reminder, this is the last of its kind. But no worries, I'll still feature products worth mentioning in my other posts. Random posts are more fun to read than these monthly posts anyway- in my humble opinion.
I love Fresh's Sugar Lip Balms. The one I used most in December was "Ruby". It gave me a beautiful tint of Ruby Red colour on the lips- not too bold- which was perfect for the Holiday season.
I have featured Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner before but I thought I'd mention it again. This eyeliner is amaze-balls. It's precise, doesn't lose it's fine tip overtime, and is pigmented if you do a few strokes over. It's a no-fuss liquid eyeliner and I've even recommended it to my sister whom loves it too. Best bet is to go with "Ultra Black" as "Black" probably won't be as pigmented and I've heard the "Brown" isn't any good.
YSL Blush Volupte in "Passionnee" #6 is a mid warm-toned pink with gold shimmers. The colour is pretty on the cheeks but I do find it a bit powdery. It also doesn't have a good balance between the pigment and shimmer; the shimmer shows more than the colour itself. If I apply more to try to get more colour, the shimmer and colour ratio stays the same, making my cheeks rosy but a bit too shimmery. My favourite blush with gold shimmers is still my discontinued Dior Blush in "Passion Fruit". It has the perfect balance of pigment and shimmer, and it's more pigmented too so I don't have to dig my brush in or reapply. I haven't purchased one of the new Dior blushes because I'm not a fan of the packaging. I'm unsure if I'll buy any other YSL Volupte blushes but for now I'll just keep playing with the one I have.
Need I mention this Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in "Diffused Light" again? Yes, because it's wonderful! Micro-barely-there shimmers, it gives an appearance of an inner glow- which is unlike the shimmer that other highlighters give.
Hopefully I will get back in the swing of things soon! It's always the starting that's hard!
