Wow I can’t believe how long it has been since I last wrote a blog post. I’ve missed you guys! How was your summer? I can’t believe how quickly that flew by as well. I had a super, super, super crazy busy summer so that was why I had to be so absent here. But, things are settling down (for now) so I am going to try to get back into the swing of things. With that said, I didn’t post monthly favourites for June, July or August!

I don’t want to get too much into this product as I plan on doing a review shortly, but aside from this type of usage, I don’t like it as an every day foundation. If I’m wearing any other makeup with this (blush, etc) it ends up looking very patchy throughout the day if it gets warm out (this could be due to my oily skin type). Giant areas will completely disappear so if you’re wearing anything else it’s super noticeable. If you’re wearing this on it’s own with a powder to set it, it wouldn’t be as noticeable so that is why I like it only for my minimal routine. Continue reading
