Favourites: March 2017
Better late than never; here are my favourites for the month of March (and a little bit of April).
First off I want to start with two items I recently bought by Tom Ford. I finished my my massive Tom Ford bronzer in Terra just recently. I wanted to buy that again, but found myself interested in trying his new formula, and the other shade; Gold Dust ( here ). Gold Dust is warmer in tone, and isn't completely matte. It's different to Terra, but I absolutely love it. It gives my skin a gorgeous and much-needed hint of warmth.
The other product was also released as part of his Soleil collection; it's the Cream and Powder Eye Color in 06 Young Adonis ( here ). The cream shade is apparently the infamous Platinum shade (I say apparently only as I've never seen Platinum myself, and so can not speak to wether it's true or not), and the glittery shade in the lid is "Young Adonis". The colour is a gorgeous darker brown taupey bronze shade - that perfect in the middle shade that is neither too light or too dark for basically every and all occasion. When you add the glitter shade on top it gives it dimension, lifts the eye and looks just as incredible as any Tom Ford glitter top coat looks. Definitely one I recommend you pick up if you can still find it!
Then I want to talk about a brush, which is something I rarely do; the Rae Morris 8.5 Créme Shadow Shader ( here ). I use this to apply my cream shadows in the formulation of the Tom Ford and Charlotte Tilbury ones; which is a lighter almost mousse-like cream shadow. This applies it beautifully; evenly, with plenty of shine and also helps blend the edges out perfectly. It also let's me be a lot more precise than when just applying with a finger. If you use cream shadows a lot I really recommend giving this brush a try.
Then for a base product; the Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint in Light 1 Finland ( here ). I've basically loved every Nars base product I've ever tried, so it shouldn't come as a surprise; but I love this one as well. It is light-medium in terms of coverage; but covers more after it sets. The finish is velvet matte, just as it says in the name, and it lasts really well throughout the day.
Finally I have a perfume; the Tom Ford White Patchouli ( here ). It is a beautiful white floral, focused around patchouli. The fragrance itself is top quality; it opens a bit harsh, but changes into a soft floral as it evolves. Then it lasts the whole day. Besides patchouli and white flowers, it has notes of coriander, peony, ambrette, bergamot, incense, woody notes, rose and jasmine.
