Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in ethereal:
I use the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder if I'm doing my makeup to go out at night or to go to an event as I don't really see a difference when I use this during the day but if I use this and I go to an event where the lightning is a bit dim, I feel like my face is just a bit.... brighter? It might just all be in my head but I really like using this when I don't really want to set my foundation with powder but I still want something on my face to get rid of that "sticky" foundation feel.
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer:
This is one of those primers that goes on liquidy and dries to a powderish finish. It makes it a lot easier for me to blend in my foundation and I also use a lot less foundation when I use this primer. I love that the slightly heavy glass-like packaging makes it feel really luxurious and a little primer goes a long way! I do have to powder my t-zone a little bit more often during the day though but I don't mind too much.
MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC20:
I've been using this on blemishes closer to my jawline as the skin there is slightly lighter than the rest of my face. I STILL don't understand why MAC skipped NC25 so I ended up getting NC20 and prayed that it would match. It's probably a tad too light but I just blend it out until it looks ok. I just love the little container it comes in and I can't wait until I finish it all up! I have this obsession over the little mac pots.
MAC lipstick in Flamingo:
I did a review here if you want to find out more about it but it's basically the perfect pink lipstick for me :) It's a really nice pale pink that doesn't wash me out or make me look like a clown.
Clarins Eclat Minute Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Rose:
Now to be honest, I've always thought of Clarins to be like an "old lady" brand and I've never been interested in it at all. I used to always walk past and never even give it a second thought as it just didn't appeal to me at all. I saw this lip gloss in a video on YouTube by Essie Button and I decided that I HAD to have it. It's an absolutely gorgeous, sheer pale pink lip gloss that feels really hydrating and just blends into my lips really well. The only thing I don't like about it is the spongey doe foot applicator which I think will get really gross over time so I always try to wipe all the excess off it when I'm done.
