For quite a long time I haven't talked about my beauty favourites so I thought this is a perfect time to talk about my currently mostly used beauty products. This is not a monthly favourites, more like overall what I have been using for months or just a few weeks.




This primer has been out for some time now, somehow I haven't got around to using it. Until recently, I thought why not looks, pretty good overall primer. I didn't disappoint at all, it works well. It doesn't fill the pores as much a pore filler primer does but also, it's not meant to do that. Leaves a soft and smooth canvas for makeup. What comes to extending the wear of foundation I would say that it helps a bit but if I'm honest usually makeup stays quite well on my skin anyway. Lastly but not least I love that it has SPF 20 if my moisturiser or foundation doesn't have it I know that my skin is still protected. I haven't found a good face SPF which wouldn't break my skin out so I use this on days when I'm not wearing makeup too.  





I was so excited to try this PUPA BB cream because when I tried it in-store on the back of my hand it looked amazing and the texture was exactly something I like.  Firstly, I will say that I don't use it as a primer under foundation I just use it as a BB cream. Let me tell you, it has so good coverage for a BB cream. I was so surprised how good it looks on the skin. Covers what needs to be covered and if something needs more covering I do spot concealing. This BB cream has a glowy finish and I set it with a mattifying powder especially on the T-zone. On the other hand, if you have a dry to very dry skin then this is a perfect product because it is moisturising and feels light on the skin. So I have been loving it and I find that it is an excellent product for everyday makeup.




This eyeshadow palette has been out also for some time and I have use it several times and then I use something else but lately, it has stayed in my makeup bag for two months and I can do almost every look with this palette. Perfect colours for autumn especially the colours 'sugar coated', 'coral punch' and 'old fashioned'. Colours have overall great pigemantion, 'citrus' and 'main squeeze' are not as pigmented more like a glittery but still with a setting spray they can look beautiful. For every day or the days when I wear eyeshadow I love to use 'strawberry lemonade' and ' sweet tea' for a subtle look. Overall a good little palette and has wearable shades with good pigmentation.



Glitter has been a huge thing and I  just got around to trying them or playing with them. They give such a wow-effect and make the eyes pop and so glittery and beautiful. So I decided to start with liquid glitter eyeshadows to make it easier because glitter can be quite messy sometimes. This NYX one in 'industrial beam' is a gorgeous gold glitter. I have noticed with this you have to let the first layer to dry and then add more because the first layer tends to be a little patchy and not as pigmented. A good tip is to add a bit of gold eyeshadow on top and it looks amazing and lasts all night and day. 



This City Bronzer has been been in my makeup bag for months and I still use it every day. It comes in two shades 'medium cool' and 'medium warm'. I have both of them but I use 'medium warm'. I don't know why but probably because on the skin they look almost identical. What comes to pigmentation then this just enough to show up but not too strong which would make you look like a Umpa-Lumpa. Easy good bornzer - all I can say.
