Colours of the Rainbow Tag

I was tagged by Sophie from Born To Buy to do this tag. If you have no idea who Sophie is, please for the love of bloggers, go visit her blog! She's amaaaazing!

I decided to do this tag a little differently to hers (read here). I'm going to pick only one product from each colour and the colours categories are ROY-G-BIV (red,orange,yellow,green,blue,indigo,violet) and pink. I could not for the life of me find a multi-coloured product that I truly love, so I'm cutting that out.

RED
Furless Kabuki Brush
Although this 2-toned red kabuki brush from Furless is now discontinued, I thought I'd throw it in this tag anyway because I haven't found a Furless brush I don't love, and they have a 2-toned black kabuki brush in stock (buy here for A$11.95). I also own another kabuki brush in a 2-toned yellow, and that lives at my fiance's (Mike). I use either one every day for setting my foundation with a pressed powder. It does not shed and its so fluffy and soft! It's also cruelty free and vegan!

ORANGE
Kerastase Nectar Thermique
I don't use this as a heat protector, as I rarely use any heat on my hair. Instead, I use this to tame frizz and help put moisture back into my extremely dry, chemically damaged locks. It doesn't weigh my hair down when I use it on dry hair (but I don't use a lot). I loved it so much, I purchased another one from HQHair to use at Mike's.

YELLOW
Nexcare Acne Patch
I mentioned these acne patches (a different packaging) on a "Products That Saved My Life" post (read here). Amazing stickers that sucks up the gunk/oil from pimples, except it only works on ones that are secreting oil or are the ones that white and are extremely tempting to pop. You can purchase these from sasa.

GREEN
Skinetica
Another acne-treating product that I've mentioned in my "Products That Saved My Life" post (read here). I love that this has no harsh chemicals and is not greasy. I also love that it does not affect my makeup, as it does not leave any oily residue (or any residue). You can purchase Skinetica here.

BLUE
Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser
I did a full review here. An excellent primer that really softens and smooths the skin. It is comparable to Benefit's Porefessional. But this one is translucent and less expensive. You can purchase this from sasa for US$11.50.
 
INDIGO
Dior DiorBlush in 553 Peachy Keen
 I've only used this blush a handful of times but I absolutely love it. It's a great peachy coloured blush that I think is perfect all year round. One side of it is matte (left side) and the other side is sparkly (right side). The only downsides are that it attracts fingerprints like crazy and the price.

 VIOLET
Urban Decay Brow Box in Brown Sugar
This isn't exactly violet, but close enough! I did a review on this here. Absolutely love everything about this brow box - from the colours of the powders to the brush! I received this as a present for either my birthday or Christmas from Mike. I did repurchase another to use at his place, but I can't remember where I bought it from. I think it was from HQHair.

PINK
Laura Mercier Lip Glace Baby Doll
I did a quick review here. I love everything about this lip gloss. It's not sticky. It smells amazing. The colour is so pretty and it's so easy to pair this lip gloss with lipsticks! 

So that is it for my Colours of the Rainbow Tag. If you would like to do this tag, consider yourself tagged. Feel free to leave your link to the tag in the comments below, as I'd love to read!

    1. Thanks Ty! Unfortunately, I haven't used the Dior Blush enough to write a post. But I'll try to use it more often so I can do a review. I feel so bad using it because it looks so lush!
