Mid Month Favs

Hey guys, so I thought I'd be cheeky (I don't know why this is cheeky) and do some mid month favourites, the things I've been using most over the last couple of weeks.  Hope you're all having a great day :)

MeMeMe Dew pot in Willow Whisper
This is a little pot of beauty - (see my review here) I love the colour and the consistency (very soft to use, softer than the colour tattoos but sets as well).  I've started combining eye shadow primer with creme shadows and shadow which is really working to stave off creasing during the day :)

NYX Slide on Pencil in Jewel
This is such a pretty, highly pigmented liner with a lovely amount of glitter in it (review and swatches here), great saying power and non-smearing/melting.  I usually wear this under my waterline so it meets my liquid liner :)  Then blend it a bit so the edge isn't as obvious :)

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Barely Beige
I have quite a few colour tattoo's and as much as I love them all, this has to be my favourite, it's such a pretty soft beige with a little gentle sparkle.  Sadly, it's nigh-on impossible to get over here since it was a USA limited edition - hopefully they'll release it over here too in the future!  (review and swatches here)

Dr Jart+ BB Cream
I'm gonna say it... this has become my all time favourite foundation, I'm giving it HG (holy grail) status, it's perfect in every way.  Doesn't make me as oily as any other foundation I've ever tried, it doesn't clog my pores, it's radiant, the perfect shade, flawless, great coverage and amazing lasting power.  I really cannot recommend this enough, especially if you're pale like me - oh and it has SPF 30 - what more could you want?  (Original review here)

Physicians Formula eye shadow quad in Bronze Minerals
I picked this up in TKMaxx just before my spending ban started (27th Dec) and I really couldn't be happier with it.  I love that there's no talc in it, you can really see the difference.  It's great quality and massively pigmented.  Lovely colours and all in all a lovely little kit, and you want to know the best bit?  I managed to pick it up for £3!!!! What a bargain!  I can't wait until the ban is over so I can go hunting for more makeup there, I'm determined to find a Happy Booster there!
