I have been loving illuminating products this month. I was never into these as I thought with my oily combination skin, illuminating products would make my face look super shiny. Was I wrong the whole time.
It's Judy Time Eyeshadow Palette by BH Cosmetics
Benefit's Gimme Brow
Maybelline Color Sensation Lipstick in 970 Nude Embrace
NYX Lip Butter in Raspberry Tart
It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination(here)
Hourglass Ambient Blush in Diffused Heat
Dior Creme de Rose
I got the It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination in a set a few months back from the Shopping Channel. I have bee loving the natural illuminating glow lately. Not sure if I'm addicted to watching Korean soap and am amazed by how flawless and luminous the Korean actresses' skin look. I have this in the shade medium and it gives medium to full coverage and you get the prettiest illuminating effect on the entire face.
If you watch beauty tutorials from youtube, you will know It's Judy Time. She has an eyeshadow palette with BH cosmetics and I got it around Christmas time. I was more into the matte natural shades when I first got the palette. But lately, I have been loving the purple and plums. The shadows are very pigmented.
Hourglass Ambient Blush in Diffused Heat has been my go-to all month long. It is so pretty and pigmented.
Dior Creme de Rose is my favorite lip balm this month. So creamy and buttery. I apply this both in the morning and before bed. Keep my lips moisturized and my lips have not been in this hydrated condition for a long time.
When I feel like doing a simple brow with minimal makeup, I use Benefit's Gimme Brow. It has the tiniest brush and enough pigmentation to nicely shape your brows. Only downside of this is the scent. Fortunately, it does not linger.
Favorite lip combination is my Maybelline Color Sensation Lipstick in Nude Embrace with NYX Lip Butter in Raspberry Tart. They are in the same color family and work perfectly together.
