Hi, I'm back with my monthly favourites, it's been a little quiet on here with everything going on I just wanted to take a little break and now I'm feeling refreshed. This month I've gone back to some old faves and I have been obsessed with a golden brown smokey eye hence all the eyeshadows. Enjoy!

First up is skincare. I went back to the Missha Time Revolution Essence Lotion, I ordered mine off Amazon and it went into my backup draw since I really wanted to finish the B. essence lotion which is really affordable but with the weather change my skin has been super oily so I have been having some really bad breakouts around my chin and mouth area. This has helped calm and restore my skin and my scars are slowly fading. I will always repurchase this and will pick up some backups when I go to Hong Kong.

Another skincare item is an eye serum, the Hylamide SubQ Eyes, I have been wanting to try this for soo long and finally bit the bullet. I love how it hydrates my undereye without affecting my skincare and makeup that I apply. It gives me perfect the hydration that my under eyes needs, morning and night, so far it has been working great for me.

Onto eyeshadows which are a majority of the post, I have been jumping between the Ardere Cosmetics Natural to Night Palette * (review)and the Colourpop Super Shock Shadows. The Ardere eyeshadows are super soft, pigmented and easy to work with, my favourite shades are Peachy, Tea time and Sultry with gives me a beautiful light smokey eye. Sultry is a metallic finish and it looks almost wet especially applied with your fingertips, if you love your shimmer eyeshadows you would love sultry. Peachy and Tea Time are the perfect transitional colour and I use them both together all the time if I were going for something more natural I skip Sultry.

My Colourpop favourites are Cornelious, Mittens and Blaze. Cornelious and Blaze is a Kathleen Light creation and is both matte finishes, Cornelius is a beautiful all over the lid base / transitional colour. Mittens is a dark brown with red undertones and look great in the crease blended with Cornelious. Blaze is a very beautiful golden brown with loads of glitter that definitely makes your eyes pop. I love Colourpop shadows and can't wait to try out their pressed powders. 

My last favourite is a lipstick from MAC, more importantly, Velvet Teddy, I have two of these and somehow I've lost my newish one and this one is on its lasts legs. Velvet Teddy is a beautiful nude pink that slightly looks different on everyone. This is my everyday nude and the matte finish is very comfortable.

That is all for my favourites this month, hope you enjoyed this post!

Until next time!
