Hello lovelies :)
Ah yes, August is over and it is time for my favourite month, September! Wooooooo ;P But before september, a new in post is in order, don't ya think? Se here is how good (or bad) I have been with spending my money this month :P
I like this powder, It mattifys without looking white, which translucent powders can do. I just wish they would do one that is more green than orange based, because of the redness around my nose and on my cheeks. While it does not correct colour a whole lot it does look natural and I think it finishes my face make up nicely. I especially like it to set my under eye concealer.
Terra Naturi Shimmer powder body & face - 01 golden highlight
I ADORE this! It is such a nice natural highlight that reflects colour nicely, but is not over the top shimmery. I have been wearing it since I got it and it never disappoints :)
NYX Powder Blush - PB11 Taupe
This is a very nice contour colour, since it is cold based, instead of your traditional orange based bronzors and contour powders. I do not contour daily, but I like to play with contour when I go out in the evening.
Catrice Camouflage Cream - 010 Ivory
I used this product some time ago under my eyes and I did not like it. It creased like crazy. But it does a nice job of covering any imperfections on the face. A small amount goes a long way with this one :)
Essence soo glow! cream to powder highlighter - 10 look on the bright side
Can you see I am getting into highlighting? I can not help myself, but I started to prefer a more dewy look instead of a more matt one. I really love this highlighter. It is easy to apply and it looks nice and natural on the cheeks.
Makeup Revolution Defence anti bacterial serum and primer
I got this item for a review from licila.si and to be honest, I do not like it. I do not think it is ment for an extremely oily skin like mine. It did make my skin smoother but it was too creamy for me and it broke down my make up quicker than if I did not use primer. I do not think that primers work for me in general, so I will stay away from those types of products for now.
Essence blending brush
Did I ever tell you I like blending brushes? Along with angeled eyeliner brushes blending brushes are my favourite, you can just do nearly everything with them! :) Anyway, I love this brush, it is soft, has just enough density and blends nicely. I just hope it will not shead when I clean it :)
Nail Wonder Micro Cell 2000
I wore mainly gel this summer, but I recently decided to ditch the gel and switch to nail polishes again. I also decided that I will try to grow my nails to a certan lenght and maintain that lenght. I heard from Ajda that this nail polish is very good at making your nails flexible, so they bend instead of break, and since I have quite severe problems with breaking nails I decided to give it a try :)
Essence studio nails better than gel nails top sealer
This nail polish is a repourchase, I think this is my fourth bottle of it :P I like the glossy finish it has.
Essence studio nails 24/7 nail base
Another repourchase. I like this base nail polish but id does become harder to apply once it is half way used.
Catrice - 30 Lilactric, 64 It's Time For Lovender & 15 Denim Moore
Oh my holy nail polish I did it again :P I just can not get enough purple nail polishes, can I? :) I love these colours, especially Lilactric and Denim More, which are sadly discontinuoed :/
Catrice Matt Velvet eyeshadow - 020 Pink-Up Girls & 030 Jump Up and Brown
I already had other colours and I thought to myself, why not complete the collection? :P I love these two colours, well I love all the colours from this range.
Kozmetika Afrodita - HYDRA Thermal Eye Cream against first wrinkles
I read Mateja's post on her skin care and she talked about this eye cream :) Also I think it is time for me to use something like that, I am turning 22 on 10th of september and that's quite old (hah!). I like this cream soo far, but I will write more about it in my skin care rutine post, after I will really test it out.
Essence Colour flash volume mascara (blue)
When I first started with make up (back in primary school) I remember using blue mascara (I think it was also by Essence) all the time on my lower lashes. Since I wore only mascara this was the way to incorporate a bit of colour in my look and it made my eyes really pop :) I started to do this again and I am really liking the colour it gives.
Alverde Fixing Spray
I was looking at this bad boy for quite some time and I finally decided to get it. I like it soo far, and I will talk more about it in a review I am planning to write.
Catrice Liquid Mmetal eyeshadow - 060 Petrol Pan & 055 We're The inner Purple
Both shades are being discontinuoed and since I wanted both of them for quite some time I decided it is the time to grab them. I will probably get some more eye shadows from this range since I really like them :)
Essence Longlasting matte lipstick - 14 Adorable Matt! & 15 Oh So Matt !
I love matte lipsticks and I was really excited when Essence anounced they are going to make matte lipsticks :) Soo far I like them and I am planning to do a separate post reviewing them :)
Essence Longlasting eye pencil - 01 Black Fever
I had two black pencils and I did not like any of them for lining my waterline ( they each have their own purpouse dough and since I like my torquise esence eye liner I decided to give this one a try. It stays on the waterline like a rock :D I love it.
What did you get this month? :)
Hope you enjoyed this post :)
I wish you all the best september ever :D
