Can't Stop Using...

Yes, I'm pretty much obsessed with these products.
I have loads of products to use and test yet I can't un-attach from my current favourite blush, powder, lip products and bases.
I'm pretty much stuck with them and can't rotate them with new and old products.
You makeup hoarder out there know what I mean, right?
It's hard to explain but usually I rotate my products on 2 week basis just to start loving old and new makeup stuff.
These held up in my ''everyday drawer'' (or handbag) for over 2 weeks or more, which is quite an accomplishment.

Guerlain Meteorite Compact Powder - Escentual
I already reviewed this baby here and said I love the final result on the skin. Now, comparing it to my loose Meteorites, this is absolutely much better. It perfects the skin and leaves a velvety finish on the skin. No other powder makes my skin so smooth and beautiful over any foundation. Definitely worth of splurge (if you find it on sale) but I think they re-packaged it into a golden compact.

Urban Decay Primer Potion Eden - LookFantastic
It's a perfect yellow base for my light skintone. It's not too orange or dark yet it covers my veins and blue undertone. Doesn't crease and you need only a tiny amount for lovely coverage. Imagine it as a concealer/foundation for your eyelids.

L'oreal Lumi Magique Base
Ever since I've heard nothing but good things about this base from Mateja's Beauty Blog, I had my eye on. Being honest, it never impressed me by swatching it on the hand in the store but there's a totally different story when you apply it on your face. It's quite weird that it doesn't show up on the hand under artificial light...I could say it's really similar to Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector but a bit more runny and subtle.

ELF Eyebrow Kit in Ash - BeautyJoint
I didn't have high expectations for Elf because I was already dissapointed by this brand. But I love the colored wax part and the powder isn't bad either (still a bit crumbly). It's a quick fix for brows if you're in a hurry.

Benefit Rockateur Box Blush - Benefit Cosmetics
Ah, can't stop using this either! It's a lovely nude-rose-bronze shade that compliments fair skintone. I can't let go of it and switch to another blush. It's just perfect. Review coming soon.

Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polish Ginger Melon
I'm really impressed by these little cute guys! They stay on my nails for 3-5 days which is practically a miracle AND they smell lovely. This particular shade smells like fruity candy or Skittles. Shade is a bright pink with a hint of coral. I want more and already treated myself to Autumn Spice.

Catrice Iridescent Topper 
This is basically a liquid shimmer for topping off over normal eyeshadows. Surprisingly this is quite liquidy but dries up in seconds and doesn't crease or ruin normal eyeshadow application. Definitely pick up this gorgeous shimmers with rose gold hue from Catrice LE Haute Future. It's about 4,5€.

Missha Glow Tint Lipbalm CR01 - BeautyNetKorea
Lip Glows are my new obsession so Missha caught me with it's name. This range is actually the opposite what I expected. They are creamy, pigmented but still kind of...translucent for more of a natural feel. This particular shade is a lovely mix of coral, peach, pastel pink that suits even pink skintones. Korean products have in general quite a nice selection of orange shades for fair skintone.

Secret Key Sweet Glam Tint Glow - KoreaDepart
A perfect Dior Lip Glow dupe! Even the packaging is a total rip-off if we don't consider actual materials. And I love the product itself too, leaves a lovely pink stain that can be build up. It's way more intense from Dior but still a similar point of view. They even have a coral version to match the new Dior Spring 2014 collection. Worth checking out!

NYX Butter Lipglosses - Peaches & Cream and Apple Strudel - BeautyJoint
Ever since I've heard these are a cheaper alternative to Clarins Lip Perfector (which I adore!) I knew I had to buy them. Not totally sure if they perfect lips but they definitely have a cake-like smell (not so strong though), smooth texture and lovely bright shades. They are indeed quite pigmented, depending on the shade. Now I want all of them.

So, what's your recent must-have? Any recommendations based on my picks?
