July – September Favorites {2018}

Hi guys! It’s finally October (how did it come so fast, though?!), and it’s time for me to list my favorite products of the last three months. There are some new high-end obsessions and some drugstore products I changed my mind about (and I’ll make sure to point that out in the corresponding review). Make sure to share your current favorites in the comments!

You can check my January to March favorites here, and the April to June ones here.

Norvina Palette – Anastasia Beverly Hills

49,55€$42 – £43 | Cruelty-free | Vegan

It won’t come as a surprise for most (I’ve been using it very often lately), but this palette is one of the best ones I’ve tried and own. It’s a very versatile palette that allows you to create neutral looks, add pops of color (or not), or create very colorful looks.

Happy Sunday! 🌸 This palette has quickly become a staple in my collection. I keep it outside my palette box because it always comes in handy when I need stunning shimmers to lighten up the look ✨ ⠀ Swipe ▶️ Today we prepared vegetarian tofu sandwiches (they had cream cheese in them, so they're not vegan), "chicken" strips (again, made of tofu) and carrot and corn gyozas 😍 I had to share, I'm super proud of the result ❤️ – ¡Feliz domingo! 🌸 Esta paleta se ha convertido en un básico de mi colección. Siempre la tengo fuera porque me va genial cuando necesito shimmers que le den un toque al look ✨ ⠀ Desliza la imagen ▶️ Hoy hemos preparado sándwiches vegetarianos de tofu (tenían queso crema, así que no son veganos), tiras de "pollo" (de tofu también) y gyozas de maíz y zanahoria 😍 Tenía que subirla, estoy super orgullosa del resultado ❤️ ⠀ ⠀ #norvinapalette #norvina #zoeva #tous #anastasiabeverlyhills #abhshadows #aesthetic #flatlay #makeup #makeupflatlay #minimalist #likeforfollow #vegetarian #lunch #sundaymood #makeupcolorswheel #aesthetics #discoverunder5k #foodie #makeuplover #pinkaesthetic #likeforlikes #discoverunder10k #beauty #undiscovered_muas #flowers

No Filter Concealer – Colourpop Cosmetics

$6.00 | 30 shades / tonos | Cruelty-free | Vegan

I reviewed this product and didn’t feel like it was bad or good; I’ve seen better and I’ve seen worse. But I really love using this concealer to carve my eyebrows (I got a very light shade so it’s perfect for that) and to cut the crease when I’m doing cut-creases. So much so, I got the white shade in my last CP order to create a blank canvas for the shadows I work with.

Princess Potion Primer – W7

3,99€ – £8.95 | Cruelty-free | ¿Vegan?

I love, love, love this product. It’s very affordable, smells amazing, and leaves my skin soft and ready to blend products on top. I haven’t had any problems with it, and I especially recommend it to people with dry skin or people who have a tough time trying to blend their foundation or cream products on their face. It helps a lot!

You can get more details in this post, where I go more in-depth about it.

Fast Base Stick Foundation – Makeup Revolution

5,99€ – €5.99 – £5.00 | Cruelty-free | Vegan | Tone: F3

Here’s the drugstore product I mentioned at the beginning of this post: I hated it at first because it made my skin super oily when I first tried it during the spring. Shockingly enough, now that the summer’s slowly leaving (it’s still quite hot here in Spain), this foundation is working so much better for me. I did change my technique, thanks to one of the tips that I got from Hourglass‘ Joel Canales Masterclass. I use very little product,  apply it using light dots on the face instead of applying it in lines with the foundation, and I’ve also started using a duo fiber foundation brush from Kiko Cosmetics.

 

Now, I can say that the foundation doesn’t look too heavy, and it’s very comfortable to wear. The coverage is perfect for everyday use, and it lasts reasonably good, even though it’s still not a 100% transfer-proof.

Prime and Fine Contouring Duo Stick – Catrice Cosmetics

$7.995,19€ | Cruelty-free | Vegan

I really like this product and I use it very, very often. The amount of product is a little underwhelming though; I expected something similar to NYX‘s Wonder Stick (review here), but the price is still good for the quality. It blends very nicely and doesn’t look too unnatural, which is what I look for in contouring sticks as I tend to save them to define my nose and my lips, principally.

That being said, you get more product worth with the NYX one, as it has almost three times the amount of product, for twice the price practically.

Melted Matte in ‘Sell Out’ – Too Faced

$24.00 – 21,90€ | Cruelty-free | Vegan

This lipstick has recently become one of my go-to’s for everyday use. It’s a neutral rust-toned color that lasts very well on the lips, doesn’t dry them out, and looks stunning and smooth.

Brow Cream in ‘Java’ – Morphe

€9,00 | Cruelty-free | Vegan

This is the first Morphe product I’ve ever tried, and it will definitely not be the last! I am enjoying this product so much currently, and I hope to be able to post a more in-depth review as soon as possible. So far, so good! The formula blends very well and the pigmentation is great. The price is very good for the quality, especially if you get the full set.

Don’t forget to use the code ADOPTLOVE for 10% off, the money helps animals in need!

That’s it for this makeup favorites list! I’ll update you guys on my future favorite products in January, where I’ll also talk about my all year absolute favorite products.

For now, thank you so much for reading me. I’m taking blogging a little slow these days because I have a lot of things to do for uni, and writing journalistic pieces for class and then trying to do something similar in my free time can be a little overwhelming. But I try to be as active as possible in my social media, so don’t forget to follow me there ♡

  1. I’ve really been wanting to try the Norvina palette but I feel like I own similar shades already😢 The Fast Base Stick Foundation is also a favourite of mine. It’s soo good for my dry skin! Great post lovely! Xx

  2. I feel like most of the shades in there we’ve already seen before, but I love the color story and the formula… I don’t know if I’d recommend it to people who already own palettes with this color scheme that they love already 😅 I decided to give the foundation a try again after reading your review! It’s working so much better. Thank you for reading! 😘
