Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog!
Last month I tested out a few new products, which up till now haven’t left my makeup bag. So I decided to share with you the products, which I felt, are worth mentioning.
In the past month, my skin has not been in the best condition. I had a bit of redness left behind from the blemishes. So I tried out a couple of concealers and the one, which was spot on, was the Catrice camouflage concealer. It has full coverage without being too cakey.
Another favorite is the RCMA No Color powder. I waited so long for this product to come back in stock! I picked up the shade translucent since that is what I prefer to set my makeup with. I have been using this to bake underneath my eyes and the smile line with this product. I do not tend to use it on the rest of my face since I don’t like a full on matte finish, but if that is your thing you go ahead and do as you please.
When buying this next product I was in doubt whether it would work or not so I purchased it to test it out. It is the Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain. I bought the shade Red Pomegranate in the shade number 3. I applied it both under and on top of the foundation. As I applied it I was afraid that it would appear as if I had a blotch of red stain on my cheeks but as you blend it, it sinks into the skin to give the effect of natural rosy cheeks. It is a stain so on the lips it looks like your lip shade but redder. It applies evenly feels very comfortable on the lips, almost as if you didn’t apply anything.

Moving on to lips, I’ve been loving Rincon Cosmetics. I have 4 of the lip products in total, but Baby Joon is hands down my most used colour. They do not dry out the lips, they feel comfortable and they apply evenly. Anything you would want in a liquid lip.
Another liquid lip I have been using constantly is Posie K by Kylie Cosmetics.

I have been keeping it pretty simple with the eye shadow since I barely went out this past month. The three shades I have been obsessed with are from Makeup Geek called Frappe, Tuscan Sun and Barcelona Beach. I just blend them out in the crease and I'm good to go.
