Another month, another look at the products I've been loving! Here's a look at what's made it into my little Muji rotation this month.
Not exactly a light summer base but I've really been liking this recently. I get a really shiny face as the day goes on but this really does stay in place! It's also a slightly darker shade than I usually wear so it's perfect now I've got a tan from my holiday. The only downside of this is that it does settle a little bit into any fine lines.
Since my Benefit Erase Paste ran out, I decided to pick this up in my Duty Free Haul. It's a little bit lighter so more brightening and I do actually really like it. The peach tone definitely counteracts the blue tone of my dark circles and means I don't have to pile on loads of heavy concealer.
Instead I've been loving this 'weightless, full-coverage' option which is so light and blend-able but still gives really nice coverage. My skin has cleared up a lot since I got back off holiday so it also does it for blemishes for me. Again the shade I have in this is slightly darker than my usual so perfect now I've caught the sun.
This is my latest glow-giving obsession! It's a gorgeous gold-toned dewy highlighter. It's also definitely not as glittery as it looks in the pan; it's very natural on.
This is the blusher I've been reaching for pretty much every day since I got home. It's so effortless to apply and gives the perfect amount of deep pink colour pay-off, with a nice bit of highlight.
Real Techniques Blush Brush | £9.99
This works so perfectly to lightly sweep on a highlighting blush like the Laura Geller one and also the Hourglass ones. It's such a bargain and can also be used for bronzer so I recommend everyone adding one of these to their collection.
Lips & Eyes
MAC Plumful (Lustre) | £15.50 | swatch
For lips it's a bit of a re-discovery; I really didn't like this when I first picked it up but now I'm in love with it! It's the perfect sheer lip way to wear colour and I love the bright, plummy tone for Summer.
Benefit BrowZings Kit in Dark | £24.50
Although I'm still loyal to my Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil, I have got back into using a little powder on the sparse patches in my eyebrows. For this I've been loving this kit from Benefit, however for a cheaper option I think the Sleek one works just as well.
This is the perfect semi-matte taupe-beige neutral eye base. I've been building my MAC Pro Palette and will do a post on it when it's done however there's been a perfect little quad I haven't stopped using that I thought I'd share.
MAC Pro Refill Eyeshadows | £10 each
I have 4 shades at the moment that I'm loving and work so well together. First is the classic All That Glitters (a pinky-nude shimmer) for the inner-corner highlight. Next I sweep some of Patina (a light brown shade with a cool iridescent shimmer) across the lid. I add a bit of Quarry (a lilac-taupe matte) into the crease then finish with a bit of Woodwinked (a warm medium brown shimmer) into the outer v.
Crown IB119 Deluxe Crease Brush* | £3.69 | review
This is my favourite brush right now for applying the crease shade but also for blending out the edges. It works incredibly well and is so soft, I really can't get over how affordable it is!
L'Oreal False Lash Flutter Mascara | £10.99
This has been my mascara go-to since getting back to the UK. I love the formula but also the brush is amazing for really hooking onto the lashes and adding some serious length. It also adds a nice bit of volume whilst maintaining definition.
A recent addition to my stash is this much-hyped Stila eyeliner. I do still think I prefer the shape of the nib on my Soap & Glory Supercat, however this is really nice for the small, fiddly details. It's very pigmented and black, plus I find it easy to work with.
For my lower lash line I've been enjoying these liners from Urban Decay. It's such a lovely, creamy, pigmented formula but once it's on it doesn't budge. I love the aubergine-taupe metallic shade of Underground.
1 - Laura Geller Pink Grapefruit, 2 - Urban Decay Underground, 3 - MAC All That Glitters, 4 - MAC Patina, 5 - MAC Quarry, 6 - MAC Woodwinked 7 - Stila Carbon Black

They're definitely worth using together :) xxDelete
I have been lusting over that UD Naked Skin Concealer for ages but my shade is always out of stock. XxReplyDelete
Some great picks for this month, I also love the RT blush brush and often wonder what I did without it. I am trying the UD concealer at the moment and I am not sure if I like it or not yet...ReplyDelete

Fab post hun, I always love posts like these :) I really want to try the UD Naked Skin concealer has I have heard so many good things and love that it’s light :) I love the RT blush brush but at the moment finding it works great for powder as it’s the right size for my face.ReplyDelete

Ooh I'll have to try it for that! xxDelete
I seriously need some Muji drawers in my life! I have a tiny set from Homebase but it holds about 3 blushers and 4 lipsticks. Really want to try out some crown brushes!ReplyDelete

I need to try these out! I love anything from L'Oreal so I need to check that mascara out! Ahhh you make me want to go and shop now haha!ReplyDelete
The Crown crease brush looks great! I haven't heard much about their eye brushes before but it would make a good affordable back up :)ReplyDelete
The only thing that I've tried that you've featured is the Stila liner, which I love. Last month was all about based products to for me, foundation and bronzer. 😀ReplyDelete

That MAC highlighter sounds gorgeous! I also love Soap & Glory's Brow Archery, but I do really want to try Brow Zings, maybe I'll try the Sleek dupe for now and see if I like it.ReplyDelete

I still haven't gotten my hands on Brow Archery yet - I'm definitely going to have to pick one up, I've only heard good things about it! I've been on the lookout for a more affordable crease brush, so I'll have to check this crown one out! Great post Jasmine xReplyDelete

I love your photos. I've been seeing the Double Wear foundation everywhere and I really want to purchase it. I have super oily skin especially in my t zone.ReplyDelete
Love | Rachael Styles Me
Thank you :D Also Double Wear is perfect for shine-prone skin xxDelete
The double wear foundation is my all time favorite! :)ReplyDelete
I love the Estee Lauder Double Wear! I need to repurchase it honestly! xxReplyDelete

Ohh that blending brush looks amazing! Will be reading your review and probably picking it up, such a bargain price too. I agree with you about the RT blush brush, it applies just the right amount on and its so so soft - I haven't used mine in a while but you've reminded me how lovely it is ^_^ReplyDelete
Iqra |The Blushing Giraffe x
The crease brush is such a steal and the blush brush is one of the few that just seems to apply everything perfectly :) xxDelete
Although I love my tried and true, amazing Mac pro longwear concealer, I've heard how comparable the Naked one is, and I've been dying to try it out!ReplyDelete
A great collection of products Jasmine! I really want to try the Urban Decay concealer as I've heard great things about it, but I have a few to work through first. I love the look of the Laura Geller blusher & they've just begun selling them in Debenhams so am sure one of these will be coming home with me soon! I picked up Global Glow last summer, but it hasn't had much use. I really should pull it out again! XxReplyDelete
Tania | whentaniatalks.com
I did notice Laura Geller on the Debenhams site! Though I think it may be a bit more expensive than on Beauty Bay xxDelete
I need to try Plumful. It's spoken about so much I just need to buy it. haha There are a few things on here I'll need to be adding to my wish list. :)ReplyDelete
I really want to buy the RT's brush but I bought the duo fiber brush by RT and I really like it.. it's quite similar as it apply the product very lightly :) xReplyDelete
I really liked the formula of the Revlon foundation, it was such a shame that no amount of mixing different shades resulted in a good match :( xxReplyDelete
Thank you for your comments - hope you enjoyed the post :) xxReplyDelete
I really want to try the Estee Lauder foundation! I've been loving MAC shadows too, they're just amazing :)xReplyDelete
