October Favourites '14

Hello lovelies! I'm back with a new list of (very late) October favourites. I'm sorry :x

I've had some of these for a while now and being a very lazy person, I rarely apply foundation/concealer/bronzer. I'm thankful that my skin has always been fairly decent, in that I don't have to splurge on foundation as much as I would like to (phew!) Although it is hard for a girl to resist from time to time, no?

So here we go, a list of all my favourite things (in October)!

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer - Oil Free Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen 
in Nude
USD43 from Sephora

I barely ever use foundation because #1 I'm too lazy to remove it at the end of the day and #2 it's too tedious to apply the foundation flawlessly. I've heard many rave reviews about LM's tinted moisturizer and I bought a tube after 2 years of contemplating. It gives a 'no makeup' look which I adore and sits on your skin without making it oily or needing to reapply. It lasted for close to 10 hours for me and I'd probably repurchase this again if I ever need a new bottle.

Tarte Amazonian clay waterproof 12-hour concealer
in light
USD 22 from Sephora

In all honesty, I've never owned a concealer. I could never really make out how to use the product on my face. I did try my mom's one once a few years back but I thought it looked uneven (I don't think I blended it out properly) and I felt like it didn't make much of a different at all. But when I was lurking around Sephora in SG the other week I picked this up in the hopes that if I needn't foundation, I'd use this.

And does it work like a charm! I applied it to an angry pimple sprouting on my nose and it looked like I had it photoshopped off! I was pretty amazed with the coverage (because I've heard from people that stick concealers are harder to use than liquid ones). The coverage lasts for about 4-6 hours, depending on how often you touch the area (I rub my nose a lot so it did wear off after while). There are definitely cheaper alternatives than Tarte, so I'd recommend doing a little research before purchasing a concealer.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Radiant Touch
in #2 luminous ivory
USD 41 from Sephora

I've used this for the past 3 years and I've since repurchased a second (yes, second) one. I haven't found a highlighter that complements my skin as well as the YSL touche eclat radiant touch. It leaves an unimaginable glow on your face, especially the cheek bones and along your brow bone. It almost sort of chisels your face for a more defined look.

Chanel Le Bluch Créme De Chanel
Cream Blush in 65 Affinité
USD 38 from Chanel

I looooove cream blushes. I've adored them since I purchased my first one from Topshop. I was browsing through Chanel's counter (because there was a 20 percent off + tax refund here in UK when my family visited) and jumped at the chance of trying the cream blushes from Chanel.

I'm absolutely in love with this shade + the consistency of the blush. It stays on forever, it leaves your cheeks looking like you've been pinching them for hours on end to achieve the most natural looking flushed cheeks, ever. Need I say more ladies, really?


That's all I have for this post, and I hope you guys enjoyed my two cents worth on these products. I'm sorry if these are a tad expensive, but I purchased majority of the items at a discount! Do let me know how you guys feel about the products mentioned and if there are dupes, please feel free to leave a comment :)

Stay beautiful, x.
