I thought that taking two months between my Favorites posts is going to guarantee a lot of products worth talking about, but no... I've been very lazy with my make-up these past two months and most days, I honestly only use a bit of blush and lipgloss. Am I mentally preparing myself for the warmer months?
However, these beauties definitely stood out among my neglected make-up products:
1. Urban Decay Naked Palette: Yes, I caved, and I don't regret it. It is amazing and it's going with me to Poland next month... along with my Z Palette. I'll be soon posting a look with tips for almond-shaped eyes featuring the Naked Palette, so watch out for that.
2. Shiseido Eyelash Curler: You can read the whole review here; before I got it, I could rarely be bothered with using a curler, and now that I have it, I can't imagine not using it every time I apply my mascara - it makes a world of difference to my lashes.
3. NYC Blushable Creme Stick in Big Apple Blush: I've raved about this formulation before, and I love this shade for layering purposes. The dusky rose tones go perfectly with most of my pink blushes, but it also looks beautiful on its own.
4. Revlon Colorburst lipgloss in Strawberry: I wasn't so sure about this at first as it seems to be packed full of glitter; however, it feels smooth and comfortable on the lips and wears off evenly. And of course, the shade is just perfect for the season.
Make-up aside, I've also been enjoying some other small pleasures:
Weekend walks in the sun... or, more often, rain and wind (here you can see all products mentioned above in action, plus a tinted moisturizer that's making me orange).
Old library books with their card sleeves and inscriptions... (benefit of writing an MA dissertation).
Cupcakes!!! If you ever visit the Seattle area, you have to check out Cupcake Royale. Like you HAVE TO.
