Monthly favourites.

Every month i always seem to mix it up and use the same products again and again. Like a rotation system ;)

Lips-
MAC - Pervette. I didn’t like this lipstick when i first brought it, but it grew on me. Lovely when the sun hits it and it has such a pretty shimmer. I’ve been wearing it a lot, of a top coat to my nude lipsticks and such, I can see this being a winner this spring!

MAC- Pink Nouveau. This little beauty makes another appearance on my blog, I love it, love it, love it!

MAC - Candy Yum Yum. I’d be lying if i said I didn’t get a little excited when I got this lipstick as it was hard to get! And since neon lips are so on trend and I love a good pink lip, I love it! It’s the only matte texture that i love really love!

MAC - Hue. I got this today on my little trip to mac (Which I’ll blog about later, got some great stuff to you all!;)) I can see it being my go to lipstick this month, so easy to wear and doesn’t make me look dead.

MAC - Naked lip liner. I got this because i’ve got rosy coloured lips, and using this liner just brings out the colour of every lipstick! Even better with nude lip colour. But overall love! I hope they make it apart of their permeant line, as i’d love to get more!

Face- (My skin is in a great condition at the moment so i’ve not being using foundation)
BENEFIT - High beam. I have an undying love for highlighters, and high beam lives up to my exceptions.

Brooke. XX.

I’ll be updating you on my little mac haul tomorrow probably and doing a little swatch heavy on my current favourite eyeshadows. Thanks for reading.

What’s in my makeup bag!

I love reading about what people keep in their make up bags, so heres my own. My makeup bag always included a few of my essentials and the lipstick or lipgloss that i’m wearing. These include -

NARS Sheer glow foundation in Mont Blanc - I love this foundation! It’s my desert island product that I love dearly. I’ve been looking for a foundation that wasn’t too cakey and looked very natural (like I’m not wearing foundation at all) and with a slight glow. Sheer glow offers this and more! Very long lasting and even looks great without primer which is always a plus. I’m looking for a new primer so ladies let me know of any that you recommend! ;)

NARS illuminator in Orgasm - I love, love this product! I have many sparkly highlighters but this shade is so perfect for everyday, gives a gorgeous glow and highlighted effect without being too in your face. It does last, but I always like to have it with me, just in case!

Marc Jacobs lola - This is my favourite perfume of all time! I love the smell, it’s so unique and not overly fruity or musky. Such a wonderful balance. I always have a tiny bottle of it to for touchups.

MAC lustreglass in Luminary - This is one of my favourite lip glosses that I own, I love the colour so much! I wanted a clear gloss with a slight hint of colour and Luminary is exactly that! even if I’m wearing a lipstick or lip gloss, I always keep it with me just incase.

MAC Lip pencil in Dervish - I think it’s really important to have a lip pencil that suits your lip colour so you don’t have that horrible dark line around your lip. Dervish is probably the closest i’ve found to my natural lip colour and I love it! I must for when I’m reapplying my lipstick :)

Dior Diorshow waterproof mascara - I’ve owned tons of mascaras (Including the ‘holy grail’ of mascara by YSL) and they don’t compare to this one! I love it. It lasts so long. I love the smell, the dramatic effect it leaves! People have even stopped me on the street asking what mascara i use and on the odd occasion people think i’m wearing falsies! I can’t recommend it enough!

NARS blusher in deep throat - One of my all time favourite blushers! I love, love the colour and how pigmented it is. It’s gives a gorgeous glow to my pale skin without being to over the top. I still wanna try out orgasm, just to see if it lives up to what everyone says!

YSL Touche Eclat - I have every dull dry skin, and with all the highlighter in the world my skin looks dull by the end of the day. It’s like my weapon that I pull out when I walk passed a mirror and see those dreaded dark circles! Love, love, love.

MAC viva glam gaga 2 - I recently got this lipstick because I’ve been looking for a pretty nude lipstick and it’s going to a great cause so why not! I love it! It’s simple and pretty, with a hint of colour that doesn’t wash me out. I always take it with me just in case.

Eve Lom intense hydration serum - I’ve been given tons of samples of this products and i love it! I’d only recommend it to dry skin types as it’s so oily. During the day if my skins feeling dry or tight, i put a few drops of this on and boom! My skin feels so alive. It’s wonderful, I’m going to buy a full sized product soon!

Monthly Favourites. X.

Each month I’m going to do a post on my favourite products of the month may it be skincare or makeup and what I like about them and my own little review!



NARS illuminator:
I’ve been looking for a new highlighter/illuminator for awhile since my current one is too glittery and vibrant (I’ll keep it for special occasions! Still a beautiful product. It’s Mac iridescent powder in silver dusk) so I w
anted a toned down product which still offered a highlighted effect. Being a Nars gal I’ve always been aware of their illuminators but ever never tried
them out. So today I went into space nk and tried out the illuminator in the shade orgasm. I was a bit on the fence as I wasn’t sure I liked the colour, but when I put it against my very pale skin and blended it. (Perfect for blending!) It was beautiful! Not too much and not too little! It’s a really universal product that can be mixed with foundation, body lotion, highlighter etc. I love the new packing too, my compact then the older model. I recommend only using a pea size amount or less. Less is more girls!










MAC Satin lipstick in Pink nouveau:
Since it’s coming into the spring I like to start wearing brighter and lighter lipstick and glosses, I came across this shade when I read this is what Lady Gaga mod-
elled her Viva Glam after but she made hers a lot lighter. I found Gaga’s viva glam far too light for me and Pink nouveau is perfect. This is a shade I can see myself wearing a lot! Added bonus that it’s a satin texture as that’s my favourite! Yay!

What I love about it -
Long lasting
Very pigmented
Non drying
Fades into a gorgeous colour
