I’ve gone done it again. Somehow I’ve managed to compile a nice little group of new things to talk about. So, you know, that’s what I’m going to do – talk about them. Unpredictable I am not. A quick side note first: The Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual, which I have hanging out in the photo above, is such a fantastic book! It’s packed full of incredibly useful information about both skincare and makeup. I highly recommend taking it out of your local library.
Stila Field of Florals Palette
I introduced this palette a couple of weeks ago and showed you guys a full array of swatches, but I didn’t give any details about the product. I will today my friends. First off, I love the colour selection. You get a whole load of easy, wearable colours and then a load more beautiful, bright vibrant colours. The formula is dewy and radiant, rather than setting to a powder, which instantly brings life into the face. While you don’t get a lot of product in each pan, it really doesn’t bother me. I never make it through a full size compact of… anything… really, so I’m happy rather to get the chance to try out lots of different shades. I sort of lost interest in blush in 2014, but I think this palette is going to change that for 2015.
Mac Cleanse Off Oil
I gave a full review of this bad boy recently and I have only more good things to say about it. It makes the whole cleansing experience so easy. A couple of quick pumps, a bit of mashing your face around and bang, you come out clean. I swear I’m talking about cleansing. But seriously, the silky smooth texture that washes off without any residue is a dream to use.
Anastasia Brow Wiz (Med. Brown)
Well, I see why everyone goes on and on… and on and on… about this pencil. It really is the best of the best. The tiny nib gives you total control of your placement and allows you to draw in individual hairs and the waxy texture means the product is easy to build up slowly and stays in place all day. Going from the Maybelline Define a Brow pencil to this one was night and day.
Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning
I finally caved and bought this. I’ve been wanting to for years and I’m happy to report that I’m not disappointed. It imparts the perfect amount of colour to your skin and it’s a lovely lightweight texture. Having a tanner than I can wear under my makeup during the day is a big bonus. Plus, the smell is very tolerable compared to a lot of other self tanners. And I mustn’t forget to mention that it’s great for sensitive skin. I don’t know if anyone else has this problem, but some tanners make my face sting like a biatch. I don’t get that at all from this one.
