I cannot believe this year is almost over! Christmas is coming (is it acceptable to start playing Christmas songs? I think it is!)
My favourites this month are short but sweet – I am trying to get back into the makeup industry!
Maybelline ‘Fit Me’ Foundation in 120
After leaving my NARS Sheer Glow foundation back in the UK (It is being sent to me – no fear friends!), I needed a foundation for Fashion Weekend Sydney, so I decided to pick this one up! Although it looks darker on the swatch, I was able to get somewhat of a tan in Italy, so it matches my face perfectly! The foundation does not give flashback and works well with translucent powder.
I was pleasently surprised with this one – provides good coverage, but does not feel heavy on my skin.
Maybelline ‘The Rocket Volume’ Mascara (Waterproof)
I could talk about this mascara forever and forever and forever. You can’t actually buy it in Australia, but it is my absolute favourite (I brought three back with me to Australia from the UK). I have pretty long lashes naturally, but the staying powder + curling power of this mascara – is one of the many reasons it is my favourites. It separates the lashes well and it dries quickly (the waterproof one, anyway). I also have the ‘normal’ mascara (non-waterproof version) and the drying time is much longer, I prefer the waterproof version.
Sleek ‘Bronzer/Highlighter’ Duo (Light)
I am a big fan of Sleek Makeup (turns out they have just launched in Target!) and I was hunting for a new highlighter/bronzer palette! I still own my NARS Laguna bronzer – but I like this one for contouring. The highlight is quite beautiful – I think I have found a new love for highlighter!!
M.A.C 15X Neutral Eyeshadow Palette
The M.A.C 15 x Eyeshadow Palette (I think this is the ‘neutral’ one) has been one of my most wanted items for about 5 years now, but I never decided to splurge on it until now! I am glad I did – perfect for travelling and has many colours that I wear on a regular basis.
The Glass Wall (Collection of Authors)
I have been really into non-fiction books recently and this one ‘The Glass Wall’ talks about empowering women in the workplace, particularly in Business and the Creative Industries. It has neat interviews and stories from women who have ‘cracked it’ into the industry, something that I am really interested in. I thoroughly enjoy reading about other people’s experience and how they made their ideas come to life.
That’s it for September, guys!! Another favourites closer to the end of 2016!
