Lately, I have tried some new makeup products that quickly became my favourites this month.
I thought that it would be a nice idea to say something about them, just a little... 💃
BOURJOIS HEALTHY BALANCE POWDER: I don't like to powder my face in the heat, although is a necessary step in my makeup routine because I have oily skin.
I have tried a lot of powders, despite the fact that a few months ago I only had the Rimmel Stay Matte powder in my makeup drawers. Luckily, I stepped out of my comfort zone and I found this Bourjois powder on sales *ofc* and I have to admit it: it's the best powder I've tried lately. ✌
I may say that it has a little bit of coverage. What I like most about this Healthy Balance powder is that I don't need to do any touch-ups during the day. What? Yes, somehow it controls my sebum and my skin looks natural and smooth. Overall, I really like it and I will definitely fill my powder stock with it.
RIMMEL FIX & PROTECT MAKEUP PRIMER: I don't remember if I featured any Rimmel primer here on the blog. I've tried in the past the Fix & Perfect primer which is a mattifying one, but I was not that impressed with it. I'm not a fan of primers, I still believe that they do nothing on my skin. Although, this one brightens the face and leaves a glowy finish after you apply it. It is said that it has SPF 25 which is cool because is currently summer and we need that SPF in our lives every day.
Overall, I like it for the fact that it gives my skin a nice glow, yet I don't know what to say about the "fix" part: as I said earlier, I don't see any difference with or without a primer.
BOURJOIS 123 PERFECT CC CREAM: Earlier this summer I've done a post about this new discovery I've made and it has become one of my favourite foundations/CC creams and if you read me for a while you know that I'm not an adventurous person and I don't like playing with foundation as much as I want to. Yes, I'm that kind of person that has a trusty routine when it comes to complexion.

NYX GEL LINER & SMUDGER: The best gel eyeliner I've tried so far. It doesn't smudge and it stays there as long as you want to. And it's blue, so...there's nothing to complain about.

CHAPSTICK LIP BALMS: They're new products to me. I've heard in the past about Chapstick lip balms but I didn't know that they're available in Romania, until I saw them on elefant.ro. I have the Cherry and the Strawberry versions and they're really moisturising. Although when I first tried the Cherry lip balm I didn't like it because I felt that it does nothing but, after a while, I started to like it more and more until I bought the Strawberry lip balm. Besides that it does moisturise the lips they smell so nice. Also, they're super cheap too, around 2 or 3 EUR if you buy them from elefant.ro.
Have you tried one of these products? Did you like it/them? Let me know!
hugs, Maria 💖
