Time just flies by so fast, so it's another late favourites post. I've been spending a lot of time at home recently, so quick and simple has been my mantra. I am absolutely loving the NARS Deep Throat and Laguna Duo. How had I not tried these earlier?! I can't figure out how to make this next part not sound a little wrong, so let's just go there.... Apologies to all those Orgasm lovers out there, but Deep Throat has it pipped at the post with a pinkier hue that has a nice sheen, not a disco sparkle. For lips, I'm loving the easy, neutral colours and the Clinique Chubby Stick in Mega Melon has been with me most days for a moisturising hint of pinky, peachy brown.
Skincare wise, I can't believe I have had this little sample of natralus Natural Paw Paw Ointment lying around without using is for so long. It is a petrolatum free paw paw ointment that rivals my Nuxe Reve de Miel for lip hydration, but has a nice satin finish instead of the matte feeling of the Nuxe. It's too early to say, but maybe my HG Nuxe lip balm has been usurped. I have almost finished the Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing & Perfecting Mask and am ready to buy a new one because it does such an amazing job of clearing and brightening my skin. This one isn't for the faint of heart. It has a strong lavender scent and has a tendency to sting a little for the first couple of minutes due to the glycolic acid, but the results are worth it.
Another sample I have had lying around for quite some time is the davroe thermaprotect, which claims to "guard the hair from heat styling infused with gingko biloba & chamomile". I have been reaching for this every time that I curl my hair because it provides decent hold and shine, all while protecting my hair from heat. I love a good multitasker. Last but not least, as the weather starts to cool down, I am loving the cosy warmth of my Prada Candy perfume. Interestingly, I find many fragrances turn sickly sweet on me, but this one just provides a beautiful, caramely, woody warmth.
Those are my short but sweet favourites for the month. What have you been loving?
