What I'm Wearing #4: Kate Moss 107
I've been feeling quite behind with blogging over the last while. It was just a classic case of 'real life' getting in the way - I was extremely busy and stressed over exams in the run-up to Christmas, and, as soon as I got time off, I was unfortunate enough to get the worst flu that I've had in a very long time. Typical! Anyhow, I feel a bit more organised now that it's the new year and all that. I will let you in on a bit of a secret, though - these pictures were taken about a month ago! Gasp! Bad blogger.
So, let's talk about some of the standout products I used here. For base, I used the No7 Stay Perfect foundation and I can't emphasise enough how great this is - I think I love it as much as Teint Idole Ultra, and the shade is much better on me! I'm just after using this up and will definitely be buying it again. I set my foundation with the Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder - this is actually my mam's but I had to rob it to try for myself (all in the name of blogging!) and it's bloody amazing. It keeps everything in place, and I think it would essentially make almost any foundation long-wearing. It's definitely one of the best loose powders I've ever tried, and I'm definitely going to pick up one for myself soon!
For eyes, I pulled out my MUA Heaven and Earth palette which I haven't really used a whole bunch since I got it in Newcastle last March. The problem that I have with this is that it is a very shimmery array of colours. I watched a video yesterday where Dani said that you really need to use a separate, matte base colour in order for this to work and I agree with her. When I use this, I usually like the look I come up with, but it's usually a bit too shimmery for my liking. Overall, though, the palette is great value and a welcome addition to any makeup collection.
For lips, lately I've been all about the oh-so-popular dark burgundy red Kate Moss lipstick from Rimmel. It really is a brilliant lipstick and the shade is amazing. To finish off and keep my lips from drying out, I used a slick of Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Stick on top. This is a bit of an unsung hero of mine - I got it back in August and use it nearly every day, either alone or on top of a lip tint or lipstick. The reddish tint suits my colouing and it softens and hydrates my lips incredibly well!
