My Winter Haul

35o_web_new_largeMorphe 35O Nature Glow Palette, Morphe M310 Highlighting Brush & Morphe M459 Contouring and Sculpting Brush

Most definitely some great additions to my make up collection! The 35O Palette is a must for anyone who loves some warm and neutral tones to compliment their eyes. The pigmentation of this palette and Morphe products in general exceeded my expectations by far! I like this palette specifically because it’s a mix between the 35OS palette which features all shimmery shadows, and the 35OM palette which features all matte shadows. So depending on your mood, or the occasion, you can pick the shadow that best suits you! Additionally, the M310 brush is one of my new favourite highlighting brushes. It picks up so much product, which is a bonus for anyone who wants to emphasize that GLOW, and it compliments all the high points of the face. The M459 brush, however, did not live up to my expectation. Though I use it for contouring my nose almost daily, and it’s perfect for that, I was looking forward to sculpting my cheeks with it, which tends to leave harsh lines and doesn’t blend very well in my opinion.

e.l.f Daily Hydration Moisturizer & e.l.f Daily Face Cleanser –

These two e.l.f products are great in combination for a quick daily routine for dry and/or sensitive skin. The daily cleanser left my skin feeling refreshed and smooth, and the moisturizer left my skin feeling super hydrated without being too oily. This moisturizer is great at night, because I typically wake up with dry skin but while using this I found that it kept my skin hydrated throughout the night. I don’t recommend this moisturizer before applying make up however, because I find that my foundation did not set as nicely in comparison to other moisturizers I’ve used in the past.

MAC Cosmetics Pro Longer Paint Pot in Soft Ochre –

The MAC Cosmetics Pro Longer Paint Pot in Soft Ochre is the PERFECT eyelid primer and concealer for ensuring your shadows don’t budge for hours at a time. After reading a ton of reviews before purchasing a good primer and concealer for my eyelids, I don’t think 5 stars  does it justice.

e.l.f. Mad for Matte 2 –

This perfectly pigmented little palette is perfect for an everyday, neutral look with a little pop of colour. I like this palette especially because it’s not too blingy for a simple school or work look. It’s so compact and can be taken anywhere for travelling or touch ups and includes the perfect little mirror with it.

e.l.f Lip Exfoliator –

This little gem is perfect for dry winters or dry lips in general. Along with my nightly cleansing and moisturizing routine, I never skip out on moisturizing and exfoliating my lips. An essential part of flawless lipsticks is ensuring they don’t crack or budge. Using this product has made my life so much easier, because I don’t feel like I need to reapply my lipstick every hour of the day.

Morphe X Kathleen Lights Palette –

First things first, can we take a moment to admire these shades! Along with the first Morphe Palette I mentioned, this FAR exceeded my expectations! I’m absolutely in love with these shades and no review will ever do this palette justice. Whether you’re looking for something casual or something extra GLAM this palette won’t let you down! The photo I used is from my instagram specifically, because the one on the website most definitely didn’t capture the beauty in all of these shades.
