Isn’t it funny. It’s as if as soon as September graced us with its presence my subconscious was like ‘give me all of the change’. I suddenly wanted to smother myself in jumpers, eat warming soups and snuggle under a cosy blanket – the normal things for autumn. One thing I hadn’t expected to happen was a sudden urge to crack out some old products. Not all of them seasonal changes either, there were just some products that I hadn’t used for a while and fancied giving them another go. So here they are.
First up is a very autumnal lipstick shade that I couldn’t wait to start re-wearing once the colder months rolled around. It’s the Mac Liptensity Lipstick in Smoked Almond. I mentioned it in my last post (read that here if you want to know what makeup I wear on the weekend) and I’m totally obsessed with it. It’s my perfect autumnal shade as I don’t like anything too dark on me but this is just slightly deeper than my usual lipstick shades of choice. It sticks around on the lips but isn’t drying and I’d totally recommend trying this range out – I may need to invest in more shades. Another Mac product is the blush in Immortal Flower. This always disappears when summer rolls around but once the warm days are over this makes a reappearance. It’s my perfect blush shade and goes with pretty much every makeup look possible. It’s also impossible to overdo.
Another one which makes a reappearance every so often is the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Whiskey. Easy to swipe on for a more natural look I’ve been loving it paired with any of the shades from my Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. It gives me something softer than my usual intense black waterline when I use it (obviously – because it’s brown) and at the minute I’m loving using this everyday. Now, we move on to the inspiration for this post, the Sleek Brow Kit in Dark. I haven’t used this in so long and one day I had this sudden urge to give it a go again. I loved this product a few years ago and for a while it was the only thing I used on my brows. After moving on to pencils and pomades I forgot about this little gem, but now I’m so glad its back in my life. I used to go in with the wax then the powder on a brush that was way too big to create anything close to natural brow hairs but after trying it back out again I just use the powder with a tiny little angled brush. I’m so glad I decided to use this again, it gives my brows a slight warmth and soft fullness that nothing else really gives. If you haven’t ever tried this before I seriously recommend it (I’m acting as if its some kind of revolutionary product – it’s not, it’s a brow powder, but it’s a really good one!).
