Still obsessing

As a person who loves make up it's easy to be incredibly fickle.  Constantly looking for the next best thing and never using anything from more than a week before demoting it to one of my many Muji acrylic drawers to gather dust.

So I thought today I would reflect on my current make up situation and tell you what I am still obsessed with and using almost daily.

They're all things I have reviewed recently but haven't yet been demoted!

#1 NARS The Multiple in Portfolio-(reviewed here)

This is my go to cream blush!  I love the golden pinky tones and it's a dream to blend with fingers or a stippling brush.  It can even be used as a lipstick too.  I use it daily at the moment and it lasts forever!  NB in the review I have linked you'll see I compared this to the Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick-I haven't used the Beach Stick once since!

#2 YSL Le Teint Saharienne Blur Perfector in 02 Sable (reviewed here)

Still totally crushing on this cream bronzer from YSL-it adds the perfect amount of warmth to the skin to stop me looking like Casper.  I have found that if you feel using a stippling brush makes the bronzer look too streaky then using a Beauty Blender to dab the product on works amazingly!

#3 YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer (reviewed here)

Another gem from YSL, I am still loving this silicone based primer gel.  It really smoothes out the skins surface and my foundation sits really nicely over the top.  I have found that the more hydrated my skin the better my foundation looks so I have ditched the mattifying primers for more hydrating, glow inducing ones.

#4 Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions BB cream (reviewed here)

Every single time I use this I am wowed.  I normally use Estee Lauder Double Wear for work and then this at the weekends and I just love it so much.  Of course it's completely different in texture from the Double Wear which is a dense liquid, this Clinique BB cream is like water on the skin yet provides amazing coverage.  Love love love.

#5 By Terry Densillis Blush in 01 Platonic Blonde (reviewed here)

I raved and swooned about this blush in my first review of it and I still use it at least 4 days a week now.  It may not look as pretty as it did in my first review but it's absolutely my most favourite blush of all time.  It's also the most expensive blush I have ever purchased.  Absolutely no regrets though.

#6 MAC Amber x 9 eyeshadow palette (reviewed here)

I use this little palette every. single. day.  And what surprises me the most is I use the matte shades the most!  Cosy Grey (top left), Georgia Peach (top right) and Cork (middle row far right) are the best crease/transition shades ever.  This little palette is perfect for travelling and I have taken it on every single trip I have been on since I bought it.  I also bought Burgundy x 9 but I haven't even touched it.  Despite using them daily I haven't hit pan at all proving this little pan is small and mighty.

What have you reviewed recently that you're still obsessing over?
