Currently Loving 04

L'amour Josie Currently Loving

It's been a while since I rounded up the products that I've been loving lately, but surprise surprise, there's a lot of MAC. I'd fallen out of love with the brand for a long time, but recently I've found some old and new loves. I've lost a little bit of my motivation to experiment with makeup recently - I've been going for an easy, time saving look - and these are the products which have really impressed me, and I've been enjoying  using to speed things up.

Base wise I've been keeping it simple. My new favourite pairing is MAC Studio Fix Fluid which I actually didn't like previously, along with Fix +. I've raved about the latter already here, but it's the perfect product to soften up a foundation as full coverage as Studio Fix - they form a flawless combination. The final MAC product which has been helping me to perfect my base is the MAC 138 Tapered Face Brush. I deliberated over buying this brush for a long time (the price tag is an extortionate £39), but I'm so glad that I did. The 138 is now the only brush that I use for my bronzer, blusher, highlight and powder. Expect a full review soon, but it's definitely a favourite addition to my collection.

Alongside a simple base, I've been really enjoying making the most of my eyes. With an early start at work I don't usually have the time for anything fancy, so a coating of mascara and quick flick of liner are perfect for me. The Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers are another investment which I wish I'd made earlier. My lashes look instantly fuller after use, and my curl holds all day. Finally, I've been finishing my easy peasy face off with my Stila Stay All Day Liner, which I reviewed here. My pen is still going strong and I love how easy it is to use for a polished look.

  2. That brush sounds great. Sigma has one that looks like a similar shape so I'd be curious to see how they compare.
