There is nothing more satisfying than squeezing the last drop out of a tube or bottle then stashing away the garbage to share with you months later. That’s what I live for! Yes, when you put that all together it sounds weird, but I truly think that using a product in it’s entirety is the best review you can give it; it was good enough to finish until the last drop. That’s why I love reading empties by other bloggers and why I love sharing some of my empties with you.
Cause who says you can’t crack out a smokey eye on an uneventful Sunday? I’ve been playing around with my makeup stash recently and have been creating a few new looks that I’ve been absolutely loving, so it’s about time I shared a few of those with you. So today we’ll start with my favourite and most simple of them all, the easy smokey eye featuring my coveted Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye palette.
Seems like I’ve dropped the ball and missed the past few months of Top 5 Favourites. I could make some excuse about the months flying by too quickly, but truthfully they’re going so slow and I’m so bored. Just slipped my mind I guess. But here I am for the first Top 5 post of 2016, my January Top 5. So, here we go.
Like I said, I’ve been quite bored lately. Nothing but early mornings and work, work, work. Therefore the bits and bobs that have kept me going over the past month are quite simple as well. Easy makeup and moisturizer for every inch of my body due to this miserable weather. My daily work face has pretty much been limited to three or four products, including the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. It’s great for really simple colour and coverage while moisturizing my face as well. Then a little comb through the brows with the Maybelline Brow Drama. I’ve really enjoyed this product over the past year, and once again you see it again in the Top 5. Been pretty consistent there. And finally for the makeup and daily face, for a bit of colour I’ve been using the Sephora Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner in Matte Deep Plum.
Now, keeping things moisturized along with the simple makeup face I’ve been hooked on the Clinque Moisture Surge. I only have a little tiny sampler size, but I’ve been using it daily and I’ve already ordered one online! Then my ever handy (hahah get it, handy?) travel sized L’Occitane Hand Cream that is my absolute favourite hand cream. Perfect hand moisturizing with no greasy-feel. That’s the worst and one of my biggest pet peeves. So once I find one like this I’m hooked!
