Currently Loving - September 2016

I'm all about the neutrals lately, and have really come to appreciate the sculpting that a good contour palette can provide. I never thought I'd see the day that I'd feature not one but two contouring-type products in a post like this but tastes change, and these are the products I'm really enjoying at the moment. 
The Australis AC On Tour Contouring & Highlighting Palette in Lighter Than Light is admittedly a newer addition to my makeup drawers, but I've been reaching for it consistently and find it quite an interesting and exciting product to play around with. The purchase was spurred on by my niece when we were out makeup shopping (so excited that she is into makeup now!) as previously I didn't have any interest in the very popular Australis palettes. It took a few weeks for the newly released Lighter Than Light shade to come back into stock at any Priceline near us, so I was quick to nab two palettes when I saw the freshly restocked shelves before work one day. The other contouring palette was a press sample that I've more than fallen for (and have already talked many people into purchasing!) - the Kate Moss for Rimmel Sculpting Palette in 002 Coral* (full review here)
The eyeshadow palette that I've had a hard time tearing myself away from is the Too Faced Bon Bons palette - the colours just work for me on a day to day basis, and there is enough nuance in there to keep me interested. I used the palette to create this makeup look if you'd like to see it in action!

I've been making an effort to use up products before moving onto something new and I'm almost out of the Rimmel Matte BB Cream in Light*...but I've already bought a backup tube, so that is a clear sign of my love for this base! When it comes to lips I've been loving my Rimmel Exaggerate Lipliner in Addiction which is a deep nude brown and Rimmel 1000 Kisses Stay On Lipliner in Wild Clover which has more of a terracotta tone to it. While I love the colours the formula can be a tiny bit drying so I usually top them with a tiny bit of NYX Butter Gloss in Vanilla Cream Pie.
Quite a few of these products have been featured in favourites posts this year already, but I think that it makes sense to continue using a product if you're loving it - I can feel myself shifting away from always wanting everything to be new and exciting, and I am now appreciating the wonderful products I have a whole lot more.
What have you been loving lately?

  1. I have that Australis palette and I really like the two highlighters in there.

  2. I need to take a leaf from your book, Emma and be content with using what I have rather than constantly chasing the new and improved.

    I've been loving my Hourglass ambient lighting palette and primer. I've actually hit pan on one of the palette shades and might seriously have to buy a full size replacement.
