It’s been a hot minute since I have written up a monthly favourites post for you guys, and after gravitating towards so many different products in the month of September I knew it was the time to do an updated one! I hope you enjoy these kind of posts, let me down below if you do! I would love to hear your feedback.
For the past few months I have been wearing less makeup and sometimes none at all, this is because I’ve wanted to give my skin a much needed break from the heavy wear throughout the day, and let it breath! Especially because my non-existent sleeping pattern has completely broke me out into having some unattractive blemishes and damaged areas. However, when the days come that I just want to create a look and feel good about myself I have noticed I’m leaning towards the same number of products. Today I wanted to grab my most used beauty items I’d used throughout the month of September and explain exactly why I fell in love with each and everyone of them.
Revolution Ultra Cover&Conceal Palette Light/Medium. ~ Let’s begin with the first favourite, which is from my holy grail drugstore brand. Yes, you guessed it I’m talking about the one and only Revolution! As we can all probably tell from the state of this palette I have completely come to love the formula of these creams. After applying foundation I like to add a very light shade underneath my eyes, on my chin and across my t-zone to create a more awake look and enhance any areas that may have become hidden. When beauty bloggers take images of their face with a flash, there can be a lot of shininess from a bright cream highlight so, I’ve found applying a little bit of translucent powder to those places helps prevent this from happening. I really like how lightweight these colours are, I don’t feel like I am trapped under a sticky and greasy barrier and I am able to enjoy my day with very little movement from the product. Revolution are currently selling this palette at anywhere between £6 to £8 In local drugstores. Definitely worth the price, because you not only get a lot of product in each pan but it lasts for a very long time throughout the day!
Cougar SnakeVenom Cream. ~ I have never loved a day cream just as much as I’ve come to love this one from Cougar. Although I’m currently transiting into the world of cruelty free, this is one product that I will make an exception for and let stay in my beauty regime because cougar have developed a tripeptide synthetic snake venom instead of actual Snake Venom which causes muscular paralysis to the face and then the whole body. How does this fine invention work you may ask? Well, this innovative ingredient effectively smoothes wrinkles and reduces the appearance of fine lines by reducing the ability of muscle cells to contract without causing any harm to the user. Currently the brand have this for sale on their website at a price of £18.99 and I would repurchase this again in a second! You get so much product in the 0.065kg container which I think is plenty for the price you’re paying, especially with how well it achieves its purpose.
