Happy Monday lovelies! Let's start this week by a tag post, shall we? The lovely Maya from Pretty Things has tagged me on her blog post. Her blog was one of the first I started following and still one of my faves so check her out :)
So here we go:
Shampoo - I try to change my shampoo once every 6 months. My hair is colour treated and I use Kiehl's Sunflower shampoo. Works great and smells amazing!
Conditioner - I use Kiehls' Sunflower conditioner which I also adore. Additionally, I deep condition once a week using Moroccan Oil Hair Mask.
Styling Product - I have naturally wavy hair and don't really use styling product. I put some Moroccan Oil oil on my hair fresh out of the shower and that's usually it. I've been using this stuff for over 2 years now and my hair has never looked better.
Shower Gel - I have various products in my bathroom but my favourite one and the one I always go back to is Bliss Vanilla and Bergamot shower gel. LOVE this stuff!
Body Moisturizer - I use both Kiehl's Creme de Corps (smells like honey..mmmm) and Bliss Vanilla and Bergamot in rotation. I can't even pick one as my fave but the Kiehl's is thicker so you need more time for it to absorb.
Face Moisturizer (Morning) - Right now I'm back to the Clinique 3-step system so I use their Dramatically Different Lotion. So far so good, my skin is looking better than usual.
Face Moisturizer (Evening) - I don't use anything at the moment...oops! Can you guys recommend something good to me?
Deodorant - right now I'm on Dove Ultimate.
Fake Tan - I've been loving Clarin's Instant Smooth Self Tanner. Best product in the market. I usually spray tan but this stuff is good when I do last minute tanning at home.
Cleanser - I use Marcelle's water based makeup remover and Clinique's Toner
Exfoliator - I've been a faithful user of St. Ives Apricot exfoliator for years. I use that stuff on my face. For my body I use Bliss Vanilla and Bergamot Body Scrub. I'm just a sucker for that scent, haha!
Primer - Been loving Nars Pore Refining lately!
Foundation - oh Lord! I always have so many in rotation! Right now I use Nars Sheer Glow (Santa Fe), Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua (B20), MUFE HD (118), MUFE F&B (#32) and MAC F&B (N2) depending on the occasion and how hot it is!
Foundation brush - I either use my fingers or grab my trustee MAC 187
Concealer - LOVING MUFE Full Cover Concealer in shade #6. Great formula and cover everything amazingly!
Powder - I use Ben Nye Translucent powder (HG for 3 years) every morning and if I get oily in the afternoon I touch up with Chanel pressed powder in Peach.
Blushes - These days I go mostly for Nars Madly or MAC Prim n Proper
Bronzer - Toss up between Nars Laguna and Nars Irresistablement. Depends whether I want shimmer or not.
Highlight - Been loving BB Nectar shimmer brick, Nars Copacabana Illuminator and MAC Chez Chez Lame powder
Eyeshadow Base - The one and only MAC Painterly paint pot, I'm on my third!
Eyeshadows - ok, there's no eyeshadow I use every single day. I would get bored! I do use MAC Blanc Type as my everyday highlight though...I also use UD Naked Palette a lot!
Eyeliner - Recently been loving MUFE liquid liner in #11, still in love with my BB gel liners especially Cobalt Ink, Ivy Shimmer and Chocolate Shimmer...and let's not forget about my beloved Lancome Black Ink Art Liner.
Curler - don't use.
Mascara - I have about 8 in rotation but mostly use Lancome Hypnose and Diorshow
Lipstick - depends on my mood, there's no single answer. I wear Nars Heat Wave and Baroque at least once a week though
Lipgloss - not much of a gloss girl but these days I occasionally wear Chanel Argonite and Venus glossimers, Nars Babe l/g and MAC True Babe l/g
Nail Polish - I change my nail colour everyday and have soooo many faves! I wear brights, nudes and neons in the summer though. I've been loving Essie's Brazilian Summer collection this week.
So I'm a bit too lazy to actually tag anyone but I do love reading these. It also helps me find new products based on what people love. So please consider yourselves tagged if you're reading this. Let me know in comment if you're going to do it so I check out your blog for this post :)
