Current Beauty Favourites

Sorry I missed another post, I’m a really bad at balancing school, life and blogging !! So to make up for it I’ve decided to share with some of my current beauty favourites, most of these things I’ve been lovin and using for a while, but I haven’t shared them with you guys. As end of exam season is coming up, I can’t promise frequent posting but I’ll try my hardest. DSC_2016DSC_2013DSC_2010

Collection Lasting Perfection

This my absolute favourite concealer, so much that I’m on my 3rd bottle. At the moment I have to mix the two lightest shades : fair 1 and cool medium 2, to find the perfect match. Sometimes I also find Fair 1 to be a bit pink toned on me but mixing them resolves this. I love the creamy, quite thick, formula of this product, which makes it so easy to blend. It just has really high coverage for a drugstore concealer and can cover any blemish and my really dark under eye circles. I know everyone has been raving about this concealer for a long time now, but it’s such good value for money. This concealer never goes cakey or change colour and go patchy through out the day.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Again you probably think I’m abit late to this craze aswell; but I’ve had this sponge for quite a while now, which proably explains why it’s so dirty ( gross, ik !). Personally, I like to use mine damp as it doubles in size and leaves you with a very airbrushed light look. The shape of the sponge means it’s really easy to reach every area and crevice on your face.  My sponge has lasted quite well and only has a few tears and staining. As they don’t last long it may seem abit expensive at the start, but they’re honestly worth every penny.

M.A.C Matte lipstick

I don’t really want to go in to too much detail, as I want to do another post about this. But, I brought mine in the classic shade Velvet Teddy, at around Christmas Time.  But the shade is just the perfect everyday nude !! The formula is really buttery and glides on super easy. If you’d like a more in death review stay tuned for a post coming soon …

Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker

I have the mini ‘Rose and Shine’ which I got in a Christmas set. Normally, I’m not a big fan of lip-glosses : they’re usually sticky, uncomfortable and I usually reach for a matte lip. But this actually subtly plumps your lips, nothing overly noticeable. You can either use this before putting a lipstick or whatever, or alone as a lipgloss.

MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter

This is another frequently raved about product, I purchased mine in Iridescent Gold, which is perfect for sunny summer days. This highlighter is very glittery, so it creates a very shimmery glow effect. This product is only £2 or £3, but is totally good value for money. As it’s so lightweight it doesn’t cling to your skin, especially dry parts like mine.

Underrated Products

These are some of my favourite types of blog posts, as I always find some products that I haven’t seen before or tried out. I chose products that I use on a daily basis, but they haven’t been raved about or recognised in the blogging community. I would love to do this type of post on something like skincare or body care, so let me know if that’s something you’re interested in.

Seventeen’s Super Lash Mascara

This product was actually a freebie, which I got back in October when I spent, I think, £7 on Seventeen. When I first got this mascara, I was really disappointed : the whole wand was covered really thickly and all up the sides.  Sadly, at the time none of the mascaras had packing on to prevent people from using them, so you had to be wary. However after a few uses the wand began to thin out and become more workable, I realised this is an amazing mascara! It’s really lengthening, but isn’t thick at all, unlike Maybelline Lash Sensation another favourite of mine. Each lash with separately covered without sticking together. If you haven’t tried this, I really recommend checking it out!

Rimmel Clear Completion Clarifying Powder

This is my go to powder, I’ve used it every day none-stop for the past year and a half. Unlike other products, I haven’t really tried out a range of powders, as I almost instantly found one I love and stuck to it. This powder sets your makeup and stays on most of the day. Unlike, other powders this ones really light weight, so it doesn’t look cakey or clog your pores.

MUA Single Eyeshadows

Now these eyeshadows aren’t ground-breaking, but for £1 you really can’t go wrong. The eyeshadow is in the shade ‘Copper’ and has a nice glitter effect to it, perfect as an all over lid colour. For the price it’s nicely pigmented and has very little fallout, which is something that I often find with glitter eyeshadows. At the moment, I only have one shade but I would love to pick up some more, as they’re really good value.

Seventeens Stay Time Concealer

These concealers quite a large shade range, for a drugstore brand, so I picked up the lightest ‘Extra Fair’.  The description and formula of the product is very similar to the Collection Lasting Perfection, both claim to last 18 hours. Compared to Collection, this concealer is a lot of a thinner consistency to apply, however once blended it begins to thicken up. This concealer is very high coverage and looks completely natural.
