Winter beauty favorites
I have the cutest little balcony with a chili tree and lanterns and I feel like this is the best thing about my apartment. I haven't had the chance to drink coffee and eat croissants there yet as it has been quite wet and cold here in the mornings but I am patiently waiting for Spring.
I decided to display all of my current Winter beauty favorites on the table:
Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette - this is heaven in a box. It literally smells like milk chocolate or hot cocoa and all of the shades are very usable and quite neutral with really good pigmentation as well. Plus, the formula is super nice, smooth and most importantly, blendable.
MAC Burgundy Times Nine palette - now this is more wintery for me because of the richer and darker shades. The only thing is that you definitely need to use a primer, not only foundation, otherwise you need to build the color up like 5 times and I don't think anybody has the patience for this. The palette has some lovely matte shades and beautifully intense shimmery goodness as well.
Sleek MakeUP Solstice palette - oh, how I love this highlighter. Some say that it's too powdery, but I would say that this is one of the most beautiful drugstore highlighters on the market. I mostly use the purple shade on my cheekbones and the lightest under the brow, on my upper lip and on the tip of my nose.
Freedom Pro Melts Lipgloss in shades Villain and Vamp - they are more of a liquid lipstick than gloss and they leave an opaque finish. Perfect for festivities! They are not very long lasting, but for the price, the quality is acceptable.
Clarins HydraQuench Cream for normal to dry skin - THIS cream has been my lifesaver. I had terrible skin a couple of months ago from using a Dior cleansing milk and I was losing hope that anything will calm it down, but this did. The formula is super light and very moisturizing even during colder months. I will definitely be repurchasing this for several times because I think I have found a staple to my skincare routine.
Benefit Roller Lash and Maybelline Lash Sensational - the last one I have repurchased for at least 8 times, but I decided to try something new for a change. Roller Lash has a tiny wand, so I was unsure if I would like it, but man, oh man, do I love this mascara. It does everything a mascara is supposed to do. Makes your eyes look like you ate 4 guys for breakfast and that you don't give a damn about what anyone thinks.
L'Oréal Paris Pure Clay Detox Mask - I have never used a mask which completely cleans out your blackheads. This is amazing, smells great and only cost 7 pounds. You need this in your life. Your really do.
Moschino Glamour perfume - I'll always be a little girl who likes sweet scents and that is definitely the case with this perfume.
