It has been a good 3 months since my last #ProductsILove post and now that winter is over, weather has turned warmer, me thinks its time for an updated edition since we use different products based on different season, no?

HERE are a few of my favourite products that I have tried and tested recently:

Face of Australia Budge Proof Eyeshadows 

TOP L-R: Emerald Tears, Poison Ivy, Bling Bling
BOTTOM L-R: Violet Rays, Bronze Sphinkx

L - R: Emerald Tears, Poison Ivy, Bling Bling, Violet Rays & Bronze Sphinx

FAVOURITES of the loot are: Violet Rays & Bronze Sphinx.

Violet Rays made smokey eyes a whole lot more wearable - I have been wearing this smokey eyes till the past 2 weeks or so ever since I have mastered my "perfect" day smokey eyes. Simply apply Violet Rays all over your lids and apply a matte brown/ coffee eyeshadow to the outer corner of your lids and halfway through your crease to blend the harsh lines out. VOILA - smokey eyes in less than 5 minutes.

Bronze Sphinx is my new to-go-to colour as the weather gets warmer. I don't know about you but I try to keep my make up to the bare minimum (as possible) during the warmer months. On the good days, I go completely sans eyeshadow. However, when I feel the need to have some colours on my eyelids, this is the baby to go to. I either wear it on its own, or add some dark brown eyeshadow to the outer corner of my lids & halfway through my crease for a more defined look. Another winner in my books.

Neutrogena Beach Defence Water & Barrier Lotion and Spray SPF 50

This new sunscreen range from Neutrogena is god sent for summer - especially with the scorching one we're expecting! Whilst I'm a HUGE fan of tanning, I am a massive sun screen freaks too. Can't really turn a blind eye when you have Skin Cancer ads poppin up left, right, centre! (Good work, NSW gov on your skin cancer campaign!)

Neutrogena Beach Defence Water & Barrier Lotion - This is definitely my beach essential this summer - 4 hour after resistant, rich but non sticky & smells good. Need I say more? 

Neutrogena Beach Defence Water & Barrier Spray - Personally, I think slathering sunscreen on a daily basis takes too much effort especially in the morning. PLUS, it feels wrong putting on work clothes after applying sunscreen. No? This sunscreen spray is made for lazy bums like me and it's SO convenient. I spray on before I leave for work and even have a can on my desk at work for some "touch up" if I decide to get some Vitamin D at Hyde Park during my lunch break. Convenience at its best and I can tan without guilt! 

Just in case you haven't already picked it up, I am quite lazy and anything that saves me time gets extra brownie points :P

Face of Australia BB Cream in Medium to Dark

Spring & summertime calls for au naturale make up. The last thing you want is having your cakeface melting under the 30 degrees weather. Whilst I still use heavier coverage foundation for night outs and events, I try to keep it simple during my day-to-day routine and this BB cream has been a recent favourite for me.

Like most BB creams do, it provides pretty sheer coverage. However, you are able to build it up slightly by applying a second layer. (This is kinda defeating the purpose of avoiding cakeface, right?) At less than $15 a pop, this will be one of my summer go-tos. The only drawback about this BB cream is it does not have any SPFs so PLEASE remember to apply sunscreen prior to applying this!

Marc Jacob Honey Perfume

As someone who loves florals and fruity scent, this is another winner from the Marc Jacobs fragrance collection. It's less floral-y than Daisy & not as sweet as Dots - perfect summer day scent. 

MUK Curl Stick

For those of you who don't know, my hair has been chemically strengtened (Japanese straightening) for the past 12 years (holy shit, it's almost a decade!). Ain't no normal curler is gonna make my curls stay! So, when I got the chance to try this out, I jumped right straight into it! Coming in 3 different sized wands and 3 adjustable temperature (perfect for those with finer hair and don't want to kill your hair under high temperature), seems like a great deal to me. I have only used the large barrel so far as I have fairly thick hair but it creates long-lasting curls for me that holds throughout the day! SOLD.

Whilst I have YET to perfect soft curls I love, I think I am getting there. :P Next up, to get the summer "effortless" beach waves. Hello Sea Salt Spray, you are gonna be my best friend! 

These are my current FAVs which I have been reaching out to heaps! 
I will dedicate a post to my fav spring/ summer lip products, because, lippies totes need a post on their own.
