Stella’s July Favourites

After a month filled with awesome products, one too many hot chocolates and the odd tornado, I have a few favourites to share with you.

Mac Prep + Prime

I got it in the shade radiant pink; it’s such an illuminating primer. It’s very hydrating and helps with oil control.

Mac Prep + Prime Fix +

This lightweight finishing mist helped refresh my skin. It creates a smooth surface to help with foundation application as well as blending.

Mac Studio Fix Fluid

I absolutely love this foundation. It has a buildable coverage with a matte finish. It makes your skin look smooth and its long wearing. I use the shade NC15; it’s definitely the foundation I reach for most.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor

Seduction is such a beautiful shade. I love that it lasts so well during the day and it does not peel-flake when I top up during the day. It has a great applicator as well.

Maybelline

I usually buy The Colossal Cat Eye mascara, but I couldn’t find any so I grabbed The Colossal Volum’ Express instead. They claim that it gives you 9x volume in one coat, I’m not so sure about that. It definitely gives volume but it didn’t give me that much. It’s still great mascara though, a close second to The Colossal Cat Eye.

Essence

Pure Skin Anti Spot Moisturizer

I’ve been using it for two months as my day and night moisturizer and I am absolutely loving it. It’s a light, non-greasy moisturizer. It truly kept the spots away.

Essence

Stay All Day 16h Long Lasting Concealer

I love this concealer; I use the shade 10 Natural Beige to brighten up under my eyes. The only annoying thing is that it’s so hard to track down a store that sells it. I went to almost every Clicks store in the East but can’t find any and it’s always sold out on the Red Square Online Store. It seems like I’ll have to fly down to Cape Town to get myself some more.

Essence

Stay All Day Translucent Fixing Powder

I use this to set the concealer under my eyes, it works really well.

Until next month
