Current Favourites

Yhew, who's missed me? I'm BACK! So you may be aware be aware I took a small blogging break. And just because I took a break didn't mean I stopped obsessing over makeup or all things beauty, so I've been keeping lists and jotting down notes like I never even stopped. So to come back I wanted to share the things I've been loving non-stop lately.

Starting with the oldest products, my much loved and repeat purchase since last year. MISS MANGA mascara has been my favourite of mine since last March. Between finding other mascara products, I've kept coming back to it. It lengthens and gives my lashes so much volume. Basically, I'm just totally in love. I'll be honest with this next product, I haven't been using it as relgiously as I should've to notice the biggest change but I can't help but feel in love with the product non-the-less. NO CLOGS ALLOWED is a heated face mask that I've wanted to purchase for a while and on recommendation from my friend Charli, so I took the plunge. Whenever I'm having a bad skin day, this is perfect, the heat really helps feel like it's actually doing something, unfortunately I haven't been using the product long enough to really notice the true
 benefits. Back in March, money was a little low and treating myself was something I really had to hold back from. But on one -window- shopping afternoon I fell in love with this Maybelline lipstick, VELVET BEIGE. My favourite thing about this lipstick? It's surprisingly natural, it combines my love for darker shades, like purples alongside the natural colours of the browns and nudes. Rather than it being completely identical to my own lip colour, it gives my lips that subtle lift. Another old favourite to find it's way back into my good books has been soap & glory's HEEL GENIUS. Since working -what feels like- constantly my feet feel destroyed after ever shift, especially by the end of the weekend and while having a mooch at my own stash I'd totally forgotten all about this product, I still have mixed emotions of the peppermint scent (as it's never been a favourite of mine) but getting this back on my feet and feeling as though I'm doing something to treat my poor feet, well that feels just great!Now I'm not the only one and you won't be surprised when I tell you how much I love Makeup Revolution. And their shadow palettes has been the must purchase items I keep going back to buy more of and recently I picked up the ICONIC 2 and I've not stopped using it since. I have all three iconic palettes now, so keep an eye out for a review. Keeping with drug store makeup, a recent purchase has become my go-to product since I brought it home...with many more shades allowed I'm trying to hold back doing more shopping and getting the whole collection. It's the COLOUR TATTOO eyeshadow cremes, a little pot of a stand alone creme eyeshadow, it's perfect for those rush days when you want to add a little colour with  minimal effort, Pink-Gold is the first shade I picked up & its PERFECT and has become my best friend lately! And finally, a high end product. You don't see these often mainly because budget doesn't always allow for them. However, this was kindly gifted to me recently and the MAC PRO LONGWEAR CONCEALER, well it's practically amazing! Such a simple item, does exactly what's needed. Highlights and covers blemishes and while using almost next to no product, I still get great coverage. When I first started using this just the one pump was tooo much and now I'm slightly getting under control and needing less and less to get the coverage I need.

And that's it, a quick over view of all my favourites. Some old and some new products...None the less they've all been used on a regular basis recently. And it's an obvious sign of a good product when you go back for more, I mean I have plenty of products in my drawers that were potentially only used the once before gathering dust at the back of said drawers.
What's everyones favourites lately? Anything you think is a MUST TRY?

  3. I've also rekindled my love for Heel Genius! And a favourite of mine this month has been the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation - It's lovely for a natural look but still giving a slight coverage!
