Last nail polish you used? Mint Candy Apple by Essie. Not very Autumnal but that’s because I last wore nail polish months ago!

Last lip color you wore? Patisserie lipstick by MAC. It’s fairly sheer but I’d already lined and filled in my lips with Dervish lip pencil, also by MAC. It was just for a bit of colour and shine, which isn’t like me. I love colourful lipsticks!

Last foundation you wore? Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Snow. Just trying it out and I’m really liking it. The colour match is not bad but I don’t know if it will top my beloved Skin Foundation by Bobbi Brown or the All Day Luminous Weightless foundation by Nars. We’ll see, I’ve only tried it twice. 🙂

All three are standout products IMHO.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/neutral

Last nail polish you used? A berry color by Essie, I think, when I last got a pedicure ages ago.

Last lip color you wore? I tried on Butter London’s liquid lipstick in Toff at Nordstrom. It was pretty nice.

Last foundation you wore? I’ve been trying out La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB cream. I’ve decided that it’s better as a primer with foundation over. It really does a nice job of blurring out pores and blemishes, but it’s very sheer, which is good actually because it’d be too dark otherwise. Most primers bother me (I think it’s the dimethicone) but I can hardly feel this one.

Last nail polish: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Strengthener in Natural Tint. Unfortunately I’m not as much into nails as I used to be. This tinted strengthener is super easy to apply and go.
