So as beauty lovers, and bloggers, we know that there are many products we fall madly in love with when we first receive them but, the TRUE test, is which products end up becoming part of our regular rotation. This doesn't make the ones that didn't make the list necessarily any less exceptional, but often means it's a shade or product that falls more into a special occasion use due to the colour or formula.
I thought you might like to see which products I have been using time and time again this fall. This speaks volumes to my love for the products because I do have "a wee bit" of makeup to choose from. ;-)
All products listed link to their original reviews.
Yves Saint Laurent Pur Chromatics Quad #10 from Fall 2012 I have been wearing this quite a bit more amped up from my original FOTD post using this quad. I have been wearing it countless times when going out and love it more than I can say. I just wore it again last night for the L'Oreal Secret Weapons 4 Skin 007 James Bond inspired product launch last night.
Yves Saint Laurent Palette Couture from Fall 2012 This has become one of my favourite bronzers. The pink and rosy brown tones keep it from looking orange on my fair skin. I love the subtle glow it gives. Both these products from YSL's fall collections have enough of a dent in them that I am contemplating backups before they are sold out for good. And I don't do backups!
Chanel Joues Contraste Blush in MaliceIn my opinion this is one of the best blushes Chanel has come out with. OK I did say "one of" the best. I mean there are so many incredible Chanel blushes I couldn't possibly narrow down a number 1 spot but Malice is definitely a contender. It is such a beautiful pink coral. It has the famous Joues Contraste glow and I find it works with so many looks. LOVE!
Rouge Bunny Rouge Prelude in the Clouds Aqua Primer I have loved how my makeup has looked and lasted over this primer. It feels great and hydrating on my skin. My bottle is now pretty much empty.
Giorgio Armani Gloss d'Armani from Summer 2012 When these four glosses came out as part of the Armani Summer 2012 Bronze Color Collection they had a very fall feel to me. Well now it is fall and I have been reaching for all four of these on a regular basis. I adore the fabulous, long-wearing formula and the shades are beautiful.
Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Lipsticks in Beige 102 and Beige 103Rouge d'Armani is probably my favourite lipstick formula. Comfortable, gorgeous shades, and long wearing. Beige 102 is the perfect peachy nude and Beige 103 it's perfect pinky nude counterpart. I wear at least one of these lipsticks on a weekly basis. I can't seem to find my review of 102 so looks like I have some work to do!
Dior Smoky Khaki Trio I am so happy this palette is permanent because I am madly, passionately, in love with it. The formula is incredible, the shades dimensional and lovely, and the overall look a knockout.
Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Troublant from Fall 2012Glorious formula. Gorgeous, shimmering shade for fall. Enough said.
So I hope you like this little overview of what I'm loving lately!
