May Favourites: My Top Three

May 29, 2013

♥ Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation - I can't speak highly enough of this foundation. It is a dream and all of the hype is justified! The colour was a tad dark for me during winter but has been perfect since my Florida holiday. It blends so well, has a lovely glowy finish and lasts on my skin. Even better is that it is often on offer in Boots or Superdrug, and even at full price is so worth it. I will be repurchasing as soon as it runs out!

♥ Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow in Tough as Taupe -  I bought a couple of these in the States and think this shade is called 'Permanent Taupe' in the UK. I have been really impressed with this- it is such a perfect shade and so easy to just swipe on my eyelids in the morning with my finger. It doesn't last 24 hours (who wears eyeshadow for that long anyway?) or even all day but I adore the shade and the fact that it doesn't crease at all which is often common with cream shadows.

♥ Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blissful - I wish I had bought more of these when in Florida as they are perfectly pigmented (ie. not too crazy, not too little) and the shades are gorgeous. This shade was recommended to me as suits every skin tone and it is a gorgeous pinky/coral colour. It is long-lasting and a great summer colour.

  1. I want to try the Tarte blush so bad! Even more now that you love it.

  2. The color tattoos crease really badly on me - even with a base i still have to set them with a powder shadow! I feel i'm the only person who can't make these work:-) However the permanent taupe colour is brilliant for eyebrows because it's grey and has no red/warm tones. Just on the sparse ends it fills beautifully and lasts all day. Will definitely try the wake me up when i'm next in the UK - you may have sold it to me:-)
