    NYX lipstick. I love it, it stays on for so long and doesn't dry my lips out very much. For such a cheap product it works as well as my more expensive lipsticks. My favorite is the snow white lipstick, it suits my pale skin so well





    NYX lip cream is okay. Looks chalky when it's on, and is kind of gloopy I think. But I love the the copenhagen shade of the lip cream, it's perfect. It looks much better in person, this is the best photo I could find online. Every other photo it looked like something Lorde or some other '90s imitator would love--- in person it's striking with pale skin, rather than goth.




    Also, YSL Rouge Volute Shine. Goes on so smooth, so luxuriously, and feels so lovely on the lips. Worth the high price tag.

    I've found that essential oil of clary sage works well on blemishes. I also take stinging nettle tablets and my hair is much less oily than usual.

    Cheap and surprisingly decent: Garnier roll-on concealer. I grabbed it on sale after reading reviews on it and it's pretty decent. I'm in my 40s and do have dark circles.

    It doesn't cover the circles quite as well as expensive brands, but it doesn't settle into lines and it feels good going on, and seems to last.

    ^ I'm a big fan of that too. I'm surprised how good some of the Garnier stuff is.

    i ran out of moisturiser while i was visiting a friend over the holiday and wasn't about to start going round pharmacies in mexico city to look for avčne so i just borrowed hers and holy crap, it is soooooo good. unfortunately my friend's a kiwi and buys it at home and they don't sell it anywhere in the US. it's karen farley age-defying intensive moisturiser.


    i'd also been feeling like my moisturiser wasn't quite doing the trick, at least in winter when i need something a little more intense and the "rich" version of my avčne moisturiser was too rich so when i got home i went on a quest for a new moisuriser. so far the best i've found is caudalie vinosource riche. it's super intense but after trying the karen farley i realised that even though i have super sensitive combination skin, it still needs a lot of moisturising and a rich cream actually keeps my skin happier. my nose gets a tiny bit shinier but i have blotting papers for that and i just put less moisturiser there now but it's worth it for how much calmer the skin on the rest of my face is. no more dry itchy bits like i used to get in winter, or the dry flaky forehead. it has a bit of perfume in it which i don't like but it's not enough to bother me or trigger a reaction. not quite as perfect as the karen farley - which is odourless and i think it's the oats in it that make it the most calming moisturiser i've ever tried - but not sure i can bring myself to pay the 20$ fee and become that person who has to order her moisturiser from fucking new zealand. i think once winter's over i can go back to my regular avčne for the morning and only use the caudalie at night but at least in winter i definitely need something more intense.

    update: still using the caudalie vinosource riche, but only at night on days when my skin feels dry. i guess i was going through a particularly rough patch with my skin this winter and it was dried out, it's better now so i'm only using it when needed.

    i started using caudalie vinosource moisturising sorbet and it's great, fairly light but super moisturising.


    i also started using philosophy renewed hope in a jar eye cream. i've never been a fan of the classic hope in a jar, i tried it and wasn't impressed. but i had points at sephora and one of the gifts was a small thing of the eye cream and i started using it and love it. it's rich but unlike a lot of eye creams, not so rich that i feel like i have to wait until i'm 50 to use it.



    also, i found the best eyebrow pencil ever. i've been using laura mercier eyebrow pencil in ash blonde. and it's good. the texture is great and the blending brush is perfect. but i find that while the ashy tone was perfect, it was a smidge too light for every day. good for going out if i want a more dramatic brow. i tried the light blonde at sephora and it was lighter, which i liked, but it was also too golden/yellow and my brows are very ashy dark blonde. so the chick at sephora told me to try anastasia of beverly hills, a romanian brand i'd never heard of.

    so i did, and bought it immediately. it's the brow wiz in taupe/ash blonde. and it's perfect. i have pretty fat brows but some of the hairs are even lighter so i like using a pencil to at least make them all the same colour and make the whole brow a little more visible. it's got a very fine tip and the texture is great, not like those super oily pencils but not so hard they leave that weird waxy residue behind.

    Have you thought of having your brows colored by your beautician?

    I got a philosophy triple pack cleanser/serum/that moisturiser for Ł25 this week.
    i got it to use the cleanser with my electric face brush-thing.
    the moisturiser is very mousant, I think that's te word even if I can't spell it. I've used it a couple of times & added Clinique moisturiser over the top.

    ~embarrased~ I watched a video about her makeup techniques, and when they were doing the brows they mentioned it. I'm a makeup junkie so I love videos and articles and how tos so much I sat through hers. (It was better than her porno) The sheer amount she wears is fascinating in itself.

    i have. but decided against it because i kind of like the versatility of having thick but fairly light coloured brows. i can use a light pencil when i just want to give them a bit more definition, a slightly darker one when i want to play them up even more, or leave them natural when that's the look i'm going for.

    don't be embarrassed, i would totally watch that (and is it on youtube?)
    i'm fascinated with make up but i also don't like looking like i'm wearing a lot of it. but i am fascinated by how much you can do with make up, the different effects and techniques. i've always loved drawing and painting in general so this really isn't that much different.

    I love makeup tutorials too. The ones that do Kim style contouring are fascinating. And a little scary before the blending. It is definitely like painting a portrait.
