September Beauty Buys
The past month of September was time to refill my vanity table with a mascara I always love having at hand no matter if I have others, a peachy blush that accentuated the beach vibe of my still lighlty tanned skin and to try a new brush format that I couldn´t imagine how useful it would become. I hope you enjoy it!
1.I always choose the very black hue because I am all into dramatic eyelashes, even on a daily basis. The wand of Maybelline's The Rocket mascara is big and full and I love the way it gives me a bit of a "clumpage" besides separating and defining my lashes. It has a fabulous staying power, delivers you a beautiful volume and it's very easy to apply.
2.This super affordable cruelty-free drugstore brand from Germany,Catrice, sold at Well's, has the most beautiful defining blushes as this deep peachy/ coral one [nº 50 -Apropos Apricot], I just can't live without anymore. This is a ultra-soft, very fine and pigmented blush [but not too strong a colour] with vitamins C and E has compact form makes it so long lasting in terms of years of usage and its colour suits light to medium skin tone [ there's no provided mirror and blush brush but most brushes that come with the blush aren't good anyway and I don't need to carry this for re-fills as it's long-lasting enough.]. It has a slight shimmer but appear semi matte on skin. Overall it's a good product and great value for money - I will surely get more of the remaning blushes collection!
3.I love having different brushes to apply products and this Barbara Hofmann's fan brush was a shape definitely missing in my make up bag. I admit that at first I didn't exactly know what it was used for, but hence I started using it I became a fan - this multi-functional brush adds definition by angling the brush to contour your cheekbone ad its large, fanned head is also great for use with illuminating powders for an airbrushed finish; not to mention the fact that it immedialtely turns into a must-have tool for lifting away any excess eyeshadow that may have fallen during the application. It is relatively cheap and very effective.
