This month has been all about good products for dry skin, because this winter is getting the best out of my skin. I wish it would just be spring. I also love everything Asian, which I'll speak more about in this post and I joined Snapchat.
Herbio Shower Gel Cotton Seed
This is a greenish blue gel, which cleans your body and smells subtle and calming. I'll talk more about it in a separate review. I've been loving this, because skin on my body has been dry and many other shower gels just further irritate it. But this is very natural, nicely moisturizing and it doesn't irritate the skin.
Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner
This is great for in the morning and in the evening. I like to use it in the evening. It's a chemical exfoliant which is also moisturizing. I like the smooth effect that it gives to my skin and the fact that it also provides a bit of moisture. Great stuff and the amount is huge.
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-purpose Dry Oil
I already have a review of this here. It's my skin savior in these winter months. I've been using this for a while almost every evening and it looks like I haven't even tested it properly. This amount lasts you for a really long time and it makes your skin very soft and smooth. It also nourishes it, so you always wake up with hydrated skin.
Ebelin Konjak Sponge
So Ebelin made their own version of konjak sponge and it's so cheap. I've been testing it out a bit and I love this for one good reason. It's the best product for a nice facial massage and for spoiling yourself. It's super soft, but still gives some pressure to the skin and it feels like you're giving yourself a face massage. It also exfoliates the skin a little, so if you have dry skin, I wouldn't recommend you to use this every day.
By Nanda BB Cushion Magic
My first cushion BB and I really like it, again because of the colder days. This is a very glowy and very dewy product and I need to powder it at the end or I look like a grease ball in the matter of an hour. But this is the best product for dry skin and for a quick makeup. I have a review of it here. I absolutely adore cushion system and want to try more of these. Do you have any recommendations?
Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer 005 Light Natural
Catrice added a new lighter shade to their range and I had to get it. I've been using it for every makeup this month. It's lighter and a bit more yellow toned. This is perfectly moisturizing with a medium coverage. You can also build it up and I love the fact that it doesn't go into small lines. I also love the lighter shade, which I almost use to highlight with a bit. I have a review of two other shades here.
The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer
My holy grail highlighter. I have a review here. I've been abusing this all through the whole month. It's a champagne gold highlighter with fine shimmer and it gives you the best glow ever. A really noticeable glow, which I love. I won't go into details, because I'm sure you're sick of me talking about it.
Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette
This is from now on my favorite eyeshadow palette. It has all the basic matte browns and a few neutral shimmers as well as some warm pops of color. The quality is amazing and the price will blow you away just as well. Definitely need to get some more palettes from Zoeva. I reviewed it here.
Diamond Beauty Eyeliner in 01 Forever Black
I've already wrote a review for this here and I can say that this is my favorite eyeliner so far. It's in a pen form, but has a brush tip and it's super precise. You can draw the thinnest lines possible or thicker. It dries fast and doesn't transfer. What more could I ask of eyeliner?!
Avon Dreams Eau de Parfum
The fragrance that I've been really enjoying using this month is the new one by Avon called Dreams. It's a very sophisticated romantic and subtly sweet fragrance. I'll do a whole review in a separate post. This is definitely for all you dreamy romantic souls.
I've recently joined Snapchat. I didn't really get it at first, but then my good friend (who's name I shall not mention) said that this is the best way of stalking other people, haha. This has now become a rather interesting tool for posting spur of the day moments and even recording some of my makeup there. I can post a lot more non-beauty related photos there. So, if you'd like to see what I'm up to, you can follow me. My Snapchat name is adjustingbeauty.
Asian Makeup on YouTube
I've been into Asian makeup this month. I got some Japanese brand makeup to test and I've been browsing through some Asian online stores. I've actually ordered one foundation which I still didn't get. Their makeup seems to be so innovative and effective and I am all over it. One YouTuber that sparked my interest in Korean makeup is PONY Makeup. I've watched all her videos. I also liked watching Meej Muse Korean-Australian YouTuber with some great product reviews of Korean makeup products. I love the subtle and sparkly eyes with eyeliner, perfect base and ombre lips. It's a totally different approach to makeup than our European-American makeup with heavy contouring and outlined lips. It's a lot more natural and softer looking. Pretty, I would say. The visual images have been stuck in my mind and I've even started doing ombre lips with lipsticks and lip glosses. Now I have a huge wish list of Asian makeup products, that I'm probably gonna be obsessing over the next few months.
Btw do you have any Asian makeup YouTubers that you would recommend me to watch?
