My Spring Favorites : Top Five
We don’t have Spring in my country. Here, we only have two options — sunny or sunny—er — lol okay technically it’s sunny or rainy, but most of the time it feels like it’s the former. Our weather is pretty much bipolar so bear with me as I embrace our non-existent spring season.
Thanks to Temptalia’s five shades of green post, I thought of gathering five make up products that ultimately remind me of spring and that I’ve been using a lot lately.
five shades of spring
Sleek blush in Mirrored Pink — Really beautiful iridescent shimmery pink. By the way it is sheerer in person than it is on this swatch above, I had to over apply the blush to make it visible for the camera. The only CON is its longevity. Unlike the other sleek blushes I have, this only lasts for around 4 hours. Shame. But it’s such a pretty color to pass on, so I still use it quite often. Also this blush is only $10 (P450) which isn’t very expensive, and it’s still available in the PH (not sure in other countries).
Burberry Light Glow Blush Peony — Probably 90% of the reason why I bought this is because its case is shiny. What—a—shallow—reason lol. You can’t see it in the pictures here though…. I’ll include more photos in its actual review. I haven’t used it long enough to write my final thoughts about it, but so far this blush is one of the softest blush I have ever tried. It’s a really nice and subtle everyday matte blush that gives my cheeks a healthy “light glow”.
P.S. How pretty is that Burberry checkered emboss?
NARS Orgasm Blush — A cult favorite, and rightly so because it’s one of the most beautiful peachy pink blushes that’s ever existed, which is why you’re probably tired of seeing it on my favorites lists. If I could only have one blush, I’d be content with having just this. (It’s a lot prettier in person than it is on my blurry swatch above).
MAC lipstick Brave — another product that keeps reappearing on my faves list. I really like this neutral rosey shade but I don’t like its longevity. It lasts for only 4 hours on me, so I’m currently on a hunt for a good dupe that lasts longer. Any suggestions?
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette — the newest member of the Naked Palette family. My Naked (1) Palette, which is also one of my ultimate favorites has taken a back seat since I got this. Some of my current favorite eyeshadow colors — Buzz, Liar, and Factory. If you like pink or rose gold I highly recommend you try this palette.
What products have you been loving lately? Also, most TV shows I follow are ending and going on break, actually some of them didn’t get renewed for next season :S Now I don’t know what to do on my week nights lol, any TV show suggestions?
