Hey everyone! It's time for another monthly beauty favourite blog. Over the month of September I didn't really buy to many new make-up/beauty products so this months blog will be a little bit short so I do apologies. Let's get started!
e.l.f. Contouring Brush (Walmart)
I really needed some new brushes, since a lot of mine are getting so old now and recently e.l.f. came out with this new contour brush and a blending brush that I will talk about next. I really like the shape of the brush and the "hairs" are super soft. I was always concerned about getting a brush like this because the design is so narrow so I thought it would be really hard to blend. Since the "hairs" are super soft it actually blends super nicely and picks up the product really well. I usually have to go back in with a blending brush just to make my contour a little less harsh but other then that this is probably one of my favourite contour brushes I own.
e.l.f. Ultimate Blending Brush (Walmart)
This brush.. I can't express my love for this brush. I have a really bad obsession with blending brushes whether it's an eyeshadow blending brush, contour blending brush, you name it I probably have it or I will buy it eventually. I usually use this brush to help blend the contour and the blush nicely because I find sometimes your face can look like neapolitan ice cream on your face and thats not a good look. The "hairs" are so soft and will blend out any harsh lines on your face. This is an everyday brush for me by far. The only thing I wouldn't use it for is to apply blush. I tried to use it as a blush brush since it was so soft and the shape of it is basically the same as a blush brush but I found the it didn't pick up the product like I wanted it to. Overall a fantastic brush and highly recommend!
Lush Liquid Lipsticks in Confident & Decisive (Lush)
I didn't even know that Lush had liquid lipsticks until I was reading their most recent catalog, and you all know that I am obsessed with liquid lipsticks so I was freaking out when I found this out. I got these two colour for my birthday from my girl Zoe who works at lush. Confident is a deep plum shade and Decisive is a vintage cherry red shade, both beautiful shade when applied to the lips. These are a liquid to matte lipstick and I would highly suggest using a lip scrub before applying and also a lip liner because they do bleed but not as much as other brands that I've used which is nice. Decisive is very pigmented and such a beautiful cool toned red. Confident I found to be a bit more sheer so I really had to apply this shade a couple times to get the pigment I want. These liquid lipsticks in particular need a lot of time to dry full matte so be careful not to eat or drink anything right after application. Once it's matte these will literally last you all day they have incredible wear throughout the day I would definitely try them out.
Lush Aqua Marina Face and Body Cleanser (Lush)
I was using the bar version of this but I found that the bar wasn't doing enough cleansing wise, so I bought the aqua marina which is like a paste consistency which I love a lot better! It is a calamine based cleanser and it really helps to calm my skin down since I have such problem skin. I get a lot of redness, oiliness, dryness, acne prone skin, eczema prone, and probably a lot more things that I don't even know about yet. This cleanser really helps to balance out my skin and really calm my skin down from all the redness and irritations on my face. I also was using this to help wash my tattoo since it's very mild and helps calm the skin. I really love this product I would definitely try it out if any of you have the same type of skin as myself.
I have some exciting blogs coming up this month that I am super excited make! One will be of my most recent tattoo that I got back in September, and I also showcase my photoshoot pictures for halloween that I also did back in September! By the way who is pumped for halloween this year? What is everyone being for halloween this year? I need to know these things so I can come up with the ultimate costume, even though I have a good idea what I'm being this year. Stay tuned this month for some exciting blogs!
