August Favourites

This month I didn´t have a lot of new favourites, I´m still using a lot of the products from my July Favourites. One of the products that I changed this month was my foundation, I switched between the Chanel Perfection Lumière foundation (shade 20 Beige) and the By Terry Terrybly Densiliss foundation (shade 7 Golden Beige), their finish is a lot more matte than I´m used to, which is perfect for Summer since my skin gets super oily this time of the year. For bronzer Nars Laguna is still my favourite, I know I have been mentioning it a lot!
For mascara I have a new favourite Lòreal Miss Manga Mascara, I love it! 
Finally for lips Mac Patisserie is still my favourite, our love affair is still going strong! But for something new I have been enjoying Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Pink Pong, it´s a gorgeous bright pink and for gloss I have been reaching for Chanel Glossimer in 179 Murmure, a pinky coral.

New in from Burberry

I own a few makeup bits from Burberry and I love them. One thing that I didn´t have and I have been wanting for a while was a lipstick I just wasn´t finding the right shade, they have amazing bold shades, that are on top of my wishlist, but for my first lipstick I wanted I shade that I could wear on an everyday basis and I think I found it in this shade No.09 Bluh, it´s a rosey pink shade ( it looks lighter in the photo) it´s a darker pink then I normally go for but at the moment I´m liking it.
My plan was just to buy the lipstick but as usual I ended up buying another eyeshadow, but to quote Rachel Zoe "I thought it was good I left with 2 things instead of 10"!!! 
I already own Pale Barley, that I love, but when I saw this shade No.21 Midnight Brown ( again it looks lighter in the photo it´s actually quite dark) I couldn´t resist, it´s a cool tone dark brown with shimmer, when I swatched this in the store It looked more warm toned ( which I prefer, I think I suit warm tones better than cool tones) maybe it was the lighting, but I still like it for when I do a brown smokey eye. Like Tim Gunn says Make It Work!

Ps: Massive Fail I forgot to take the plastic thing from the eyeshadow. Oh well!

Spain Haul

On my Birthday I went to Spain, and obviously did a bit of shopping so here´s what I bought:
I went a bit brush mad and bought 2 and yes they look similar! I bought the Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Brush, which I have been using for powder and Loving it and the Nars Yachiyo brush.
As usual I went a bit eyeshadow and lipstick crazy and I´m still regretting not buying a few more bits but there´s always next time! For eyeshadow I bought the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Bronze, Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 in The Top Shelf ( Includes shades Mixologist and Cognac) and Lóreal Color Riche L´Ombre Pure in Matte 107 Macaron Vanille.
As for lips I finally bought the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl, I had my eye on this one for a while, the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks in 360 As You Want Victoria and 470 Glam Plum Fulham and finally the Maybelline Baby Lips Electro in Pink Shock ( my fav) and Berry Bomb( not in the photo, it kept photographing blue!)
Finally I bought a nail polish from Max Factor from their Gel Shine range in 45 Gleaming Teal.

I already have a list for next time! I know I have a problem....

Birthday Makeup

Last Tuesday was my birthday, I loved my makeup, so what did I wear? I after trying a few looks I finally decided on this. For my foundation I choose Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation ( I mixed shades 6 and 4), By Terry Touch-Expert Advanced (shade 3) under eye concealer, Nars Laguna Bronzer, Nars Gina Blush. For my eye makeup my favourite part! I used Mac Cork eyeshadow all over the lid, Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Palette in The Dolce Vita ( I used the dark brown shade in the outer V and crease and patted the glitter shade all over the lid) then I used Mac Cork eyeshadow again in the crease. For my feline flick I used my Dior Waterproof Eyeliner in 594 Intense Brown, for mascara I used a new favourite Lóreal Miss Manga Mascara. Finally for the lips I lined my lips with  the Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner in Eastend Snob, then I used Mac Patisserie Lipstick and finally a Dior Gloss in 452 on top. And Voilà the look was complete!!!
