Current Favourites #1









Instead of doing monthly favourites I thought id just do current ones like this post when there are a few products I've been loving! I wanted to share with you the products I've been reaching for over the past month so here we go :)

Topshop cream blush in head over heels

I've had this blush a good year or so now but at first I just couldn't get it to work for me. I do think it depends what foundation you are wearing as to how it'll apply. For me if I'm wearing Estée Lauder double wear this is a no go but anything else I've tried works great. I've been using it with my Real techniques stippling brush by just doting a small amount on my cheeks and blending which works great. The colour may look scary in the pan but with a gentle hand can be used for a subtle colour or built up for more intensity. The only thing that frustrates me about cream products is how mucky they look in the pan!

Hollister body mist in Laguna beach

In my younger days I've gotta admit I did get caught up in the whole Hollister style. Nowadays I do pop in for odd pieces (I especially like there tank tops) but had never tried their body sprays until I received this for my birthday. I find body mists so easy to just spritz on and go as the scent is usually lighter than that of a perfume. It's refreshing, peachy scent is perfect for spring summer and just reminds me if holiday.

Real techniques deluxe crease brush

My boyfriend bought me the Real techniques eye starter kit for our anniversary about a month ago after dropping some serious hints! I tend to ignore what the brush is called and its actual purpose and use it how I find best for me. In this case it's not as an eye brush but as my concealor brush. It's perfect for blending in under my eyes as its super soft and a great size for dotting on any blemishes. Don't be scared to experiment with your brushes! 

17 eyeshadow in statuesque 

This shade was given to me a while ago by my Grandma after receiving it as a free gift with something, I knew I'd love it instantly. I'm a sucker for neutrals so this pinky, champagne colour was right up my street. When I look at this shadow the colours rose gold comes to mind, it is shimmery however it's so finely milled it just works. It's easy to blend and lasts just as long as my naked palette shadows at a fraction of the price. Go and check this shadow out now it won't disappoint.

Nivea day cream in dry and sensitive

I picked this up on a whim over three years ago and now seem to always repurchase as nothing I've found does my skin as good. I know I'm not a fan of fragranced things on my face however this hasn't caused any irritation. It has that typical Nivea smell which i know some people don't get on with. I try to get the dry and sensitive version as its slightly thicker and richer than the others. I apply this everyday under my make up as a base and some evenings when my skin is particularly dry. I honestly can't see myself not having this at home as it works great and is super affordable. 

Clarins Instant light natural lip perfector in 01

I'm sure you've heard people raving about these before but they really are ah-maz-ing. It's a gloss like texture which is in no way sticky yet stays on the lips and gives off a sheer sweep of colour. I'm a huge fan of the applicator these have, it's so soft on my lips I can just sit there reapplying and reapplying! They do have a smell which again I like and I've seen they've bought out new shades recently which I'm so tempted by as mine is only a mini version! 

Moroccan hair oil

I've used Moroccan oil for over 3 years now and only have good things to say. I've never tried a similar product because this works so well so I can't say how it compares to others but all you need to know is its great! Before I started using an oil I was skeptical it would make my hair greasy but I haven't had any issue with that at all. I much prefer using it after I've washed, brushed and towel dried my hair rather than dry, I apply 2 or 3 pumps on to my fingertips rub them together and then just run through the lower two thirds of my hair. I can notice such a difference straight away in texture and appearance and I have I mentioned the smell? I can't get enough! 

Have any of you tried any if these products? What did you think?!
