Running a fashion blog, definitely has its perks. One of them being, testing out the hottest makeup trends and new skincare and haircare products to hit the market. I’m sometimes even lucky enough to try them before they hit store shelves. With that, comes the overwhelming feeling of now being able to share everything with you guys. I’ve recently cut my blog posts down, going from 15 new posts a week to 11. This is in hopes to not overwhelm my readers and allow me to showcase only the best of the best. That being said, I fall in love with so many new products each month, that don’t make it to the blog, that I thought I’d start to do a monthly favourite post. Each month I’ll share 10 items I’ve been loving, that didn’t necessarily make it into their own blog post.

I’ve been pretty lazy this month in terms of getting ready. I’ve never been one to leave the house without a full face of makeup on, but these past few weeks, I’ve been looking for products that are quick and easy. I’ve fallen in love with the slightly new Burberry Eye Colour Contour Smoke & Sculpt Pens. Created in a retractable pen format these help to instantly create a bold smoky look with precision and ease. It’s rich and creamy, long-lasting formula doesn’t crease or fade for upwards of 8 hours, with no primer needed. Simply mix and match colours or pair with powder shadows to help add even more dimension, depth and vibrancy. I can see Pale Copper being universally flattering on all skin tones and it has just the right amount of shimmer to wear both day and night. Stone Grey not only works as an all-over lid colour on those nights when you’re looking for a little drama, but it can also double as an eyeliner in a pinch. It comes in 7 different colours and retails for $32 each….
