Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in 1 - Fair

I've raved a lot about the Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer since they released it last fall, but in the last two months I've discovered a new favourite - the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair, and I'm probably the last person on earth to do so. When it comes to concealers I'm looking for medium/full coverage, preferably with a matte finish, decent lasting power and light formula so it doesn't end up looking cakey a couple hours after application.

Bourjois Levres Contour Edition Lip Liner in 01 Nude Wave

I've accumulated quite a few lip pencils in my collection in the past year. I've been trying to find a flattering everyday shade that would enhance the lips, without adding too much color, so it could be combined with many different looks. The Bourjois Levres Contour Edition Lip Liner in 01 Nude Wave comes close shade wise, but the longevity is not it's strongest feature.

Paula's Choice Clear Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution in Regular Strength (2% Salicylic Acid)

In the past year or two acid toning has become more and more popular, although these kinds of products have been around for several years now, just not so readily available on our market. One of the brands that is well known for their AHA and BHA Exfoliating Liquids is Paula's Choice, who have created a wide range of skincare items for many different skin types. I've reviewed the Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid (Salicylic Acid) in the past and this one is a milder version (it works at a different pH level) and more suitable for someone who is looking to enter the world of acid toning and gradually build the tolerance for stronger products.

Topshop Magic Liner in Engraved

Me and liquid eyeliners don't really get along than well. I've tried many cheaper ones from the drugstore in the past but there was always something wrong with them. They weren't black enough, they dried up in a week, etc. so I've mainly prefered to define my upper lash line with some smudged dark kohl liner. I've been trying to find a new decent eyeliner and I really like the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner, but that one has been in my collection for so long it has earned its retirement. A while back I was browsing online and I really liked the packaging for the Topshop Magic Liner and decided to give it a try.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lip Therapy

I really like the brand First Aid Beauty as a whole (their Face Cleanser is a favourite of mine) and I remember some of my favourite bloggers mentioning this lip balm as their favourite next to Nuxe's Reve de Miel Lip Balm. I tend to have quite dry lips so any trusty recommendation in this department comes in handy.

Bio Beauté by Nuxe Toning & Nourishing Satin-Touch Oil with Corsican Citron Extract

Nourishing oils have become more and more present in my skincare routine for both my face and body in the past year. In particular I've loved the NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil and still can't get over the fact that it smells delicious and makes the skin feel super soft and smooth after use. Pretty recently Bio Beauté by Nuxe came out with a collection of body care items fragranced with extracts of the Corsican citron and since I love such scents in the warmer summer months I wanted to try the body oil from the collection.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay's latest releases haven't been the most exciting for me personally, so I've been sticking with their classics lately. I'm a big fan of their pigmented and blendable eyeshadows and find them to be a staple in my collection whether I'm looking for something matte or shimmery. I've already reviewed their Naked2 Basics Eyeshadow Palette and today I'll be sharing more about their first edition, as well as a comparison between the two.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is a liquid concealer offering medium to full coverage. There's 9ml of product inside the glass bottle, which is a generous amount of concealer, because they usually contain around 6 ml product or less. It has a plastic pump dispenser which is pretty hard to control the amount of product you want to use, especially at the beginning, but with consistent use I've kind of figured out how to control it. As a consequence, you'll end up squeezing out more product than you need to use.
