October Favourites

October Favourites
November is here, Christmas is just around the corner and it’s almost the end of 2017! I know it seems like I say this A LOT but really, wow this  year has flown by! I didn’t post a monthly favourites for September so this October favourites will be a combination of both months.

These past couple months have been very eventful for me. One of the highlights of these past two months would have to be in September when I went to KCON Australia 2017! KCON was an exciting, fun and memorable two days as I got to see lots of great artists perform live including some of my favourites such as Wanna One, Monsta X, EXO and more. I was also lucky enough to get the opportunity to get hi-touch passes for two artists I most wanted to see – Wanna One and Monsta X. It definitely was an unforgettable and unique experience that I was very fortunate to have and will never forget!

Anyways, enough with the catchup for the past few months…Now time for my monthly favourites.

Cosrx Clear Fit Blemish Cushion

Cosrx Clear Fit Blemish Cushion

I actually received this Cosrx cushion from StyleKorean a few months ago to test and review. And, I’ve been enjoying using this ever since I started using it because it has amazing coverage. With the weather warming up here in Sydney and Summer just a few weeks away, this cushion has been the one I’ve been reaching for the most! A light application of this cushion evens out my skin tone well and has a matte finish. I posted a full review of this cushion in September, you can read more here.

Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream

Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream

I’ve been using this eye cream for a couple of months now and realised how much I love it. Innisfree is definitely one of my fave skincare brands since they make great affordable products, and the Orchid Eye Cream doesn’t disappoint. I also loved the Orchid Enriched Cream from the same line, which was in a previous monthly favourites. This tub comes with a generous 30mL of eye cream which may not sound like a lot, but believe me a little of this cream goes a long way so will definitely last a while! The cream has a nice floral scent that isn’t too strong and leaves the skin around my eyes feeling smooth, soft and moisturised.

Clinique Pep Start Double Bubble Purifying Mask

Clinique Double Bubble Purifying Mask

This mask has been great for me on days when I want a full skincare routine without all the effort. This bubble mask is a pretty pink colour that bubbles up to a white foam once applied to the face. When the masks begins bubbling up there is a slightly ticklish sensation that is a little strange at first but not unpleasant. The awesome thing about this mask is that it only needs 2 minutes to take effect and for the bubbles to fully form. Once rinsed away my skin felt soft, smooth and refreshed. I then followed with the rest of my usual skincare routine. It’s such a perfect no-fuss, quick and easy mask that requires little effort which I love!

Son & Park Beauty Water

Son and Park Beauty Water

I decided to finally try out this much raved about Son & Park Beauty Water. It is a multipurpose toner that also doubles as a cleansing water. The Beauty Water helps to cleanse, exfoliate and also moisturise the skin gently without the use of any harmful ingredients. I love that it is so gentle yet cleanses and tones my skin well to leave it feeling moisturised and refreshed.

August Favourites

August Favourites flatlay

September is finally here, which means it’s a new season! It’s officially Spring here in Sydney and I’m definitely excited for the warmer weather! So, as it’s a new month, it mean it’s also time for a new monthly favourites. Here were my favourites for the month of August.

Makeup

Peri Pera Lip Ink 2017 Limited Edition in #4 Bang Rose

To be honest, I only bought this Lip Ink because I was suckered into the cute packaging. But, even though I only bought this because of the packaging I ended up really liking it. The Lip Ink lasts a long time as it stains the lips so even after eating or drinking the colour still remains. This was a Limited Edition for 2017 – year of the rooster – which happened to be my Chinese horoscope so I couldn’t resist not buying one. I love that it comes with the cute little rooster cap attachment as it just makes the lip ink so much more fun and adorable.

Peri Pera Lip Ink Limited Edition 2017

The colour is a pretty, bright and vibrant pink-ish red but applied on my lips looks like a magenta shade. I usually prefer nude lip shades and don’t go for bright colours but I was surprised how much I liked this colour. It is a very fun and eye-catching shade, and makes for a good statement lip that isn’t too over the top and is still very wearable. I like that it wasn’t drying on the lips, as I find with many long-lasting lip products the formula can be very drying and make your lips look patchy. Also, a bonus is that it has a really yummy sweet smell, just like candy!

Colourpop Crystal Lip Balm in Amethyst

When I saw Colourpop releasing a range of pretty crystal themed products, I was definitely very interested. I bought this Lip Balm in two shades –  Amethyst and Rose Quartz as the swatches looked very pretty and the most wearable. I preferred the Amethyst one as my favourite colour is purple and it has a beautiful pinkish purple shimmer. I liked pairing the Amethyst Lip Balm with the Peri Pera Lip Ink I mentioned above as they matched together really nicely and gave a pretty opalescent finish. I like how this Crystal Lip Balm can give a new look to any lipstick or tint you have by just simply applying it over the top. The lip balm gives a pretty opalescent shimmer that is not too over the top and very wearable, even in the day time. The Amethyst balm also has a yummy sweet and fruity smell.

Cosrx Centella Blemish Cream

I finally tried out using this Centella Blemish Cream in August and was wondering why I didn’t start using this earlier! I love how much it helped to calm angry pimples and heal them without scarring. I really like the formula for this cream as it is very gentle and doesn’t dry out my skin like a lot of pimple and acne treatment creams available. I’ll be sure to post up a full review of this sometime.

Etude House Dear My Glass Tinting Lips-talk in #GR701 & #12 I Am Your Vitamin Case

I got suckered into buying these cute Etude House Darling Lip Talks lipsticks as the cases were just too cute to resist. My favourite cases were the Fries and Vitamin designs as they are so fun and adorable. I really like that they are customisable and love to mix and match the cases. Apart from the adorable cases, my favourite colour was of course #GR701 – a fun color changing pastel blue lipstick that changes to a soft pink shade upon application. It gives the lips a nice natural pink colour that blends and enhances your natural lip colour so will suit all skin tones and lips! If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen this cute lipsticks in some of my recent posts.
