Current Loves #3



YSL Le Teinte Touche Eclait - Link! I've had this foundation for over a year, and started using it again this month - I love it! It's a lightweight liquid foundation and is really easy to blend into the skin. You can apply a light layer for a sheer look or build to up for a more medium coverage This foundation leaves a lovely dewy finish on the skin. I like to wear a light layer and then apply concealer on any areas where on need more coverage. (I usually apply 2 pumps of the foundation with a Sigma F80 brush)
Smashbox Full Exposure Palette- Link! I've been using the four warm matte shades in the palette to create a quick and easy everyday look this month. (The four shades on the lower left hand side) I use the beige shade as a base all over the lid, then I place a mixture of the two medium brown shades in the crease, and finally I apply the dark brown shade into the outer corner. These shadows are smooth, blendable and they last all day.
Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in NaturalLink! This is a matte soft warm tan shade. I use it all over the face (along my cheekbones, temples across my forehead & on my chin) to warm up my complexion
Essie Lady Like- Link! This is a medium taupey beige polish with mauve undertones and no shimmer. It goes on smoothly, is opaque in two coats and lasts about three days without chipping. The polish also has a wide brush which makes the application quick and easy.
Wet n Wild Megalast in Red a Good Book (available in Primark Ireland)- This is a true red polish. It has no shimmer in it, is not streaky, it's opaque in two coats and is easy and quick to apply because of it's wide brush. This polish also last three days without chipping. Both of these nail polishes are extremely similar in their formula and the way they apply.
Xen Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Self Tan in Dark- Link!  This tan is a lotion that I apply going to bed, I let it develop overnight and then wash off the colour guide in the morning. (I apply it with a mitt). When I apply the tan it has a caramel/vanilla scent to it, however as the tan develops you do get that "fake tan" smell. The lotion has a olive green undertone to it, which means you don't end up looking orange. It wears evenly and does not go patchy on me. The tan lasts 5/6 days on me before I need to reapply.
Aqua Di Parma Gelsomino Nobile (eau de Parfum)- Link! This is gorgeous floral scent (jasmine) with light woody undertones to it (I'm not the best at describing scents)
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy- Link! This is the perfect everyday shade. It's a glossy, sheer, warm pink with beige undertones. It has a balm like texture and feels very moisturizing on the lips. The only down side to this lipstick it doesn't last very long on the lips, but if you don't mind reapplying a few times throughout the day then this lipstick is for you. I think it's also worth noting that the lipstick has a faint floral scent to it.
