November wasn't great either but that's more because I'm in a rut. I'm getting bored of my own makeup because I feel that, in the morning rush, I do the same thing again and again. It's probably high time I shop my collection and challenge myself to use different things.
But at least, it makes it quite easy to pick favorites, because I've been using the same stuff all month.
Avene Soothing Hydrating Serum and Hydrance Light.
Still a very good combination for dehydrated skin. I have, however, noticed that it was a bit too much for my T-zone, which isn't as dehydrated, and so my makeup was sliding around in the afternoon. So I actually use these two on the cheeks only, now, and favor a lighter moisturizer for the T zone during the day.
LRP Cicaplast B5 Balm.
Best balm ever to soothe irritations, dry patches, eczema, dermatitis etc... I've had to use it a couple of times this past months and it's still working its magic. A must have for the Winter!
Urban Decay 15th Anniversary palette.
When I've been wearing a bit of color, I've been using this, as you have seen it featured in my recent purple look. Great selection of colors and great texture.
Inglot matte eyeshadows
Pictured here is my first palette, but in the meantime I got two more, one of shimmery shadows and another containing mostly mattes. However this one is the one I've been using the most, these colors are just so perfect for smokeys that on any unispired days I've been safely turning to it.
Illamasqua Empower palette.
Another palette I have been using a lot, at least once a week (wich is a lot, for me) and actually I'm wearing it as I'm writing this. Definitely one of the prettiest palettes of this year!
Addiction Dewy Glow.
I only had a sample of this but I wore it for half of the month until it ran out. Feels like air, looks fabulously glowy and perfect amount of coverage guaranteed.
Ren Guérande Salt Exfoliating Body Balm.
Heaven knows I'm really bad at taking care of my body skin. But when I can be bothered and I use this, my skin feels fabulous. It's more than just a scrub, it's a balm, and it leaves your skin feeling moisturized and soft. Love it.
