Ok well you all know my obsession with lipsticks, recently I caved and treated myself to another MAC lipstick, 'Faux'. It doesn't sound like much but its the 6th MAC lipstick I've bought since christmas, not even including the lip liners as well. I thought I would do this post to keep you all up to date with my most recent make up routine. 

Foundation- NARS All Day Luminous Silk Foundation: I have such a love hate relationship with this foundation, some days I love it and it looks flawless, and others I just cant wait to remove it. I found it so difficult to find the best brush to use with this, however, I've finally realised that a stippling brush is best. I don't think I will be repurchasing this, however, for people who have good skin and don't need to wear as much foundation this would be perfect for you. Let me know any good foundations you recommend for combination oily but extremely sensitive skin. 
Powder- Rimmel Clear Complexion in Transparent
BronzerMACs mineralise skin finish natural in 'Medium Deep' 
ContourBourjous Bronzing Primer
HighlighterMAC Mineralise Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle. 

Eye liner- Maybelline Master precise 
Mascara- Rimmel Scandaleyes XXTREME

Pencil- Maybelline Master brow in Soft Brown
Mascara- Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara in clear

LipstickMAC lipstick in Faux: I am in love with this lipstick, it is the lightest MAC shade I own but I think it looks amazing on my skin, especially blended with the spice lipliner. As its a satin finish it leaves a nice sheen to the lips, yet it is so pigmented and lasts on the lips for ages. I would definitely recommend this lipstick. Just remember, how this lipstick looks on me will be different to how it may look on other skin and lip tones.

The only brushes I use are Real Technique brushes, I own almost every brush they have in the ore collection.

I hope everyone enjoyed the post, let me know what you think of any of these products and if you would recommend any other products to replace these.
