I've definitely been a little restrained when it comes to my spending money on make up lately. I have so much of it that I am taking a few months off buying anything new in order to use things up & make room for some shiny new purchases after the spending ban is up. However there are a few things I'm lusting over in order to give my make up bag a bit of much needed excitement. I don't know about you but sometimes I can get into a make up rut of the same things day in, day out and it's nice to mix things up a little.
I feel I have a lot of pinks, a handful of corals and literally three red lipsticks. I think a bright vibrant orange such as MAC So Chaud or Morange would be a welcome addition to my collection and may suit a dark skin tone more than a red lip.
I need to rekindle my love for primers. It's always the step I miss out of my routine, yet the step which is most important in keeping my look fresh all day. I'm a big fan of Benefit's The Porefessional so I feel I should dive in & buy a full size instead of trying to pick up samples.
With dark skin I find contour to be quite hard as most bronzers are too light/shimmery/muddy for me and I find some darker one looks like I'm smearing crap on my face. I think NARS Laguna is too light but Casino on the other hand is something I swatch over and over again but never buy. I think it would be between that and Benefit's Hoola at the moment. Any preferences over the two?
