One of my very favorite posts to write is these where I can share my favorites with you. I know I have also said that one of my favorite post to write are haul posts, empties post, makeup looks and reviews as well. It’s all true though, I guess it just means I like to share this stuff in general.
But the reason why writing favorites posts are so fun is because when I find something I really like and use over and over again I feel like my fellow makeup lovers need to know about them! So this is the makeup products you need to know about this month.
Mac Extra Dimension Skinfinish “Whisper Of Gilt”. I have already written a raving review of this iconic product and I guess I don’t have to go in depth about it. You can read the full review here. I just could not put this down this month. I used it almost every day with just a few days in exception. It gives a beautiful pale golden metallic sheen. I am a bit sad to take this out of my everyday makeup bag and put it in my drawer, but I need to give my other highlighters some attention too. This is a great one though!
The Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup (why is it called makeup and not foundation? I am confused) is a beautiful very long lasting foundation. I am impressed by how long lasting it is in fact. It has good coverage while still being light weight. This just does not budge on me throughout the day. Unfortunately the shade I have “Shell Beige” is only suitable for me when I am very tan (in hat world am I shell beige? what was I thinking?). I would love to pick up this in a lighter color because I want to use it more often than just those three weeks I am tan enough!
Guerlain Les Voilettes Translucent Loose Powder Mattifying Veil is the finest most light weight powder you can imagine. As you can see the packaging is quite messy. The puff is under the lid, but it has to stay there in order to keep powder from leaking out of the wholes and create a dust-cloud every time you open. So the puff looks disgusting, but the powder inside is really amazing, and the packaging do look pretty (before you open it that is!). This powder has that classic Guerlain scent. It smells like old fancy lady, but I like it. In fact my inner 80-year-ol lady is thrilled. If you want a light weight translucent powder that is mattifying (and expensive) this was a big hit for me at least!
Juvia’s Place Saharan II Eyeshadow Palette is the palette of the month for sure. I have been loving using this while preparing for it’s review, but it has also been the one I’ve been reaching for the most besides the palettes in my everyday makeup bag. I would say I used this 2-3 times every week through September which is pretty good for me. It’s just something about these gorgeous metallics and warm rich brown and red crease shades that makes me so happy. And the quality of Juvia’s Place palettes are amazing off course!
Off course I have some listick goodies as well!
Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks has been my favorite dry-down liquid lipstick formula for a while, and the shade “Celebrity Skin” is a nice everyday nude. Everyday nudes are off course what I reach for the most, and I don’t mind it being light weight and lasting all day either!
Colourpop Ultra Blotted Lip is a formula I don’t have very many of, but that I really really like. I love the soft blurred out effect it gives my lips. They are not as long lasting as their Ultra Matte or Ultra Satin lips, but they fade away very nicely so it does not really matter if you don’t have time to do touch-ups, you can just refresh it when you want and not worry too much. This is the shade “Soda Pop” which is a nice MLBB color.
H&M Creme Lipsticks are so underrated. These lipsticks are so good and comfy. It does not at all feel like a cheap lipstick. The packaging feels cheap, but the product is so nice and luxurious it might as well be a high end product. The formula on these are just amazing and I can’t belive not more people talk about them, This is the shade “Cream Chestnut” but I am absolutely getting more shades!
Lastly the Sleek Distorted Dreams Highlighter Palette. This one has two powder highlighters and three cream highlighters in quite interesting and bold colors. At first I actually had my regrets buying this. The powders where not that good, and the cream highlighters have quite a lot of glitter. But I started using this in the inner corner with more bold looks, and for that purpose these looks absolutely stunning. Especially the blue will give an out-of-this-world inner corner glow to blue looks. As you can probably tell, I suddenly used this quite a lot, and as for now these are my go-to highlighters for colorful looks! Plus it’s in a neat, small packaging.
And that’s it for this months favorites! What have you been loving this month? Do we have any favorites in common, or is it something here among my favorites that you just can’t stand? Let me know! I always love hearing your opinions about products, and it’s so interesting getting different views!
