5 Products to Buy This Month

These products will be quite familiar to you if you're a regular reader of Microscope Beauty. I've ranted and raved about them time and time again so it was about time I brought them all together to share what products you should buy this month if you're feeling spendy.

My love for Stila seems to know no bounds and the Stila in the Light Palette is definitely my most beloved palette (and last I checked on sale for $20! What?!?). The usage this baby gets. Even if it's just to use the fantastically large mirror to see my makeup up close, I can confidently say I use this on a daily basis. The color range is phenomenal as well as the color payoff. The shades are wearable and easy to blend. It can do no wrong in my book. Now to just get my hands on some of the other palettes Stila does...

I won't go too into the Clinique Chubby Stick in "Grandest Grape" since it does have an entire post dedicated to it, but if you haven't tried any of the balms from this line you are missing out big time. The Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray exceeds my expectations time and time again. It's a snap to spritz on my face in the mornings and I can actually see a difference in my makeup after application. I've always been a fan of the dewy look and this takes it one step closer to perfection.

I'm trying to not exhaust you with constant ramblings about the Too Faced Melted Liquefied Lipstick in "Melted Fig" but my damn is this stuff pigmented. The color pay off is out of this world, application is a breeze, and I'm so glad I got over my weird silly qualms over the packaging to give it a go. I have my sights on more, that's for sure.

A product that I downright adore but haven't seemed to give it the attention it deserves is the Stila Smudge Stick in "Damsel". The best liner I've used to date, hands down. Pigmented, creamy, no pulling, lasts ages. Everything you could possibly want and an impressive shade range to boot. 

What products would you recommend that I just have to buy this month?
