I don’t know about you, but here in Switzerland you can clearly feel that summer 2012 is over.
I thought I would write a post on products I have been using the most during the last season, this can involve LE items, older season items, early fall releases… I just took all the products that have been used and loved the most and here they are :
- Bioderma Créaline TS H2O
The water in Switzerland is really hard and makes the skin feel really uncomfortable. With this I can remove my makeup and clean my face more softly in the evening and the morning. For the eyes I always use the Bobbi Brown Long-Lasting makeup remover.
- Laura Mercier Repair Creme
Because it’s the only moisturizer that works for me.
- Astalift Jelly Aquarysta Rejuvenating concentrate
The other day my boyfriend draw whiskers on my face just for fun, so I had to remove my makeup earlier during the day. In the evening, I looked at the mirror and I thought I still had my foundation on, so I started to remove my makeup again. Then I realized that I actually had no foundation on at all !… My skin was just much clearer, I still have a lot of pigmentation irregularities, but they have been toned town and my skin looks definitely younger. I have been using it for two months but I did not realize that my skin had really changed until very recently.
- Omorovicza Correcting Pencil
I use this pencil to cover or highlight small surfaces.
- Ellis Faas S103L foundation
For now, it’s my HG.
- Burberry Sheer Concealer No 2
Unlike many concealer pens, this one is really great for me. It does not only highlight but it does cover too, without feeling cakey or thick.
- Tom Ford Terra Bronzer
My HG bronzer.
- Rouge Bunny Rouge Sweet to touch
It’s like a finishing powder, a luminous all-over subtle glow, insanely expensive though.
- Chanel Lumière d’artifices
A more dramatic highlighter but I love the shade and the finish on the skin.
- Suqqu Veil
Another highlighter… amazing texture.
- Sisley L’Orchidée
I used it as a bronzer/blush when I needed a quick wash of color on the cheeks. Serves as both, delivers a beautiful dimension to my cheeks.
- Givenchy Croisière 4
Funny texture, something between cream and powder. Love it ! A different bronzer, I was surprised, I really used it a lot, loved the radiant finish.
- Givenchy Le Prisme Bucolique 2
Just a beautiful blush.
- Guerlain Terracotta Sunny Pink
One of my favorite liquid blushes ever, the glow it delivers is just gorgeous, not an obvious blush, it melts into the skin and the result is really sexy.
- RMK Mix for cheeks 4
Ok, you know I love RMK Mix for Cheeks so… it’s HG material, nothing else to add.
- MAC MSF Light year
Once you brush away the biggest glitter particles, it’s such a gorgeous highlighter.
- Rouge Bunny Rouge Gracilis
Loving all the RBR blushes, this one was the one I reached for the most since I was very often wearing dark smoky looks, I used to pair them with this blush.
- Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate
An every day must wear, I feel like something is missing.
- Burberry Rose
- Burberry Blossom
Two beautiful blushes. These two are my favorites from Burberry.
- Chanel Inimitable 10 waterproof
- Benefit They’re Real
I use these two mascaras together, first I apply the Chanel, then I apply some Benefit on top.
I am still looking for the perfect mascara… I wear these two, but if you have similar options, please let me know !
- Mac Blacktrack
I often wear a thin but dark gel eyeliner very close to the lashes.
- Chanel Prelude
Love how easy it is to wear, this paired with dramatic’ish’ gel eyeliner is one of my favorite looks ever.
- Suqqu Konruri
I love this palette, the blue shades are really gorgeous, I often combine this palette with more matte shades from other brands.
- Burberry Midnight Plum
I have often been doing a dark smokey look with only one dark shade, from the bottom of the lashes, up to the crease and higher, then I apply Trench on the browbone. Easy to do, gorgeous effect !
- Burberry Trench
Loving this as a neutral base color.
- Addiction Sugar Blond
For the cupid bow highlighter.
- Addiction Rabit Hole
For a neutral dark definition of the eyes. I smudge it with a pencil brush.
- Addiction Flash Track
- Addiction Singita
My two favorite eyeshadows from Addiction.
- Chanel Pivoine
- Chanel Bois de Rose
These are two amazing lip pencils, great lasting powder and very flattering.
- Chantecaille Lip Contour
I need this, the feeling of my lips once applied is amazing. Even if I don’t wear any other product, I love to apply this pencil on its own.
- By Terry Gold Digger
My HG gloss.
- Cle de Peau T5
- Dior Nude Sillage
- Edward Bess Night Orchid
- Rouge d’Armani 507
- Shu Uemura CR 330
These 5 lipsticks are my favorites for the summer but I will for sure continue to wear them forever.
I have so many things to try for fall 2012, I will be testing a lot of new products but mainly foundations and skincare.
