Slipping new things into my routine to spice up this my holidays! A mix of stash shopping and cheeking hauling brings forth this new brood of beauty goodies for me to play with, and I’ve really enjoyed getting out of my makeup rut.
Some of these were in my September Favourites, such as the Clarins Instant Concealer* + Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer. I’ve never been one to use concealer regularly, and having two to use under my eyes seems a tad extravagant to me. That said, I quite like looking more awake than usual, so these have been hanging around my makeup bag and I’m happy for them to stay embedded in my routine. Another surprising addition to my routine is the Maybelline Baby Lips Pink Lolita, which I’ve been using for a sheer tint on my lips which is not something I usually wear. I tend to go for either bright lips or a gloss, but lately a tinted balm has been gracing my lips more often than not and I’m sort of getting used to the pared back look.
Another new lip product to jump into my routine is the Bourjois Color Boost Crayon in Red Sunrise. I’ve been using the Peach on the Beach shade for a while and couldn’t stop myself from buying the juicy red shade from the new collection. These crayons are super glossy and feel really comfortable on the lips, and I adore them.
I’ve been wearing Estee Lauder Modern Muse lately, which is the latest perfume release from the mega brand. I really like the way it sits on my skin and I’ve garnered a few compliments while wearing it at work, so I have to say so far so good with this new addition to my routine. I’ll have a full review up once I finish my sample spray.
Not much more needs to be said about the latest shower gel to jump into my caddy- the Original Source Chocolate and Mint shower gel smells edible and amazing, and I urge you to try it! I’ve also slipped a new blush into my routine, the Jouer powder blush in Blossom which I bought after seeing it on Ingrid from Miss Glamorazzi. Last but not least for the new products in my routine is an old favourite for the eyes- the Face of Australia Liquid Eyeliner. Quite simply the best I’ve ever tried, this is jet black and doesn’t smudge, and I’ve become a little bit obsessed with a slick of dark liner above my lash line!
