Time for a monthly favourites post!
In all honesty, I didn't wear that much makeup in September, as this transitional period is far from makeup-friendly: golden shimmer and bronzers look so "off", and then the weather is not that wintery yet to wear intense smokey eyes or red lipsticks with ease!
Hence these safe colours...
Elf Natural Radiance blusher in Shy: this product caused me a makeup enlightenment- baby pink blush+olive skin= perfect combo!Nothing more to add, you can see my review here
Elf Mineral lipstick in Runway Pink: this was my most reached lipstick during September, always accompanied with Shy blusher! Cause you know when sometimes you wear a pink cheek with a pink lip but somehow their undertones don't match? Well, these two products were meant to be worn together!
TBS Shimmer Cubes #20: my new favourite eyeshadow palette! The Body Shop has introduced 4 new shimmer cubes to their permanent makeup line, weeeee!!! I've been using all 4 shades to create a soft smokey eye and I even got compliments from a male friend who's against the philosophy of makeup :P
H&M nail colour: I'm so cheap when it comes to nail polishes; and since I really don't care and go out in public with chipped nails, I don't see any reason to invest in a big bottle of Chanel nail colour- knowing that I would never use it up... This one by H&M is just perfect- 7 ml of burgundy red for that autumn feel, only for 0.95 euros :)
TBS elderflower gel: it's a cooling gel that only offers basic moisture to the under eye area; however it gets absorbed in no time leaving no traces behind to interfere with concealer! Yeah, I've been there- courtesy of a Korres eye cream :(
On another note:
During past month I fancied some light read to get my mind off the stressful everyday things, so I bought an Agatha Christie novel. What a terribly cunning woman she must have been! Her writing style is always to-the-point, with no elaborate (but superfluous) depictions of landscapes or buildings.FIY, the plot in all Agatha Christie novels is standard and goes like this: a dead body is found by an unfamiliar person, in a completely irrelevant place with zero or very few witnesses... And when you've read half of the book and you've formed a faint idea of who's the murderer, there's another killing to mess things up. So predictable but still, it manages to get you hooked till the end...
Oh! and another thing: whenever did my little blog gained 200 followers?
I can't express how grateful I am for you, my lovely readers, in that you spare a little of your time to read my everyday ramblings-
so as a "thank you", I'm planning to do a couple of small giveaways!
