When you are fortunate enough to review a myriad of products from various brands – inevitably you end up with favourites. It says a lot about those products that you actually continue to use and would agree to buy again.
Here are my current favourite products that I use daily (and yes that is a My Little Pony make up bag, isn’t it super cute?):
1. Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel, £36
This bronzing make up base is a godsend. Despite the hefty price tag, the quality is well worth the investment. I use it everyday before applying foundation, it provides a natural looking tan and a smooth base.
2. NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer in CW04, £6
Great great value for money. This concealer even manages to hide my dark circles, which is the equivalent to an actual panda. Hugh coverage without being too heavy on the skin, has longevity also – after wearing it all day it doesn’t crack under your eyes.
3. No7 Lash Impact Ultra Mascara, £13.50
I am such a fusspot when it comes to mascara, I like them to be thick but not clumpy. And extra voluminous. This No7 mascara is an absolute beaut, in its glittery casing it looks the part – and performs just as well. After applying just two coats I have thick long natural looking lashes!
4. No7 Pop & Glow Cream Blush, £10
I usually use powder blushers, so it’s a wonder I’ve been converted to cream blush. In actual fact it’s much easier to use, just smooth it on and blend it in to your own preference. Previously I was using a powder blush by Charlotte Tilbury which although I was happy using the product, it was so difficult to get it right. The blush was so highly pigmented that one swish too many and you ended up looking like Pennywise from IT. Not a look I would strongly recommend.
5. No7 Stay Perfect Eyeshadow Trio, £10
This is possibly the cutest and most useful mini Eyeshadow palette I’ve ever owned. The colours are neutral yet striking, pigmented enough for a day look. However if you want to transition to a night time, more dramatic look you can layer up the darker brown colour. Love this palette.
6. The Ordinary High Adherence Silicone Primer, £3.90
An absolute steal for £3.90. I’ve mentioned this primer before, but it’s one I’ve been using religiously the last two months. And when it runs out I will be purchasing again. It provides a smooth base for make up, it isn’t greasy and it isn’t overly Matte either. The result is natural, fresh looking make up.
7. High Definition Beauty Brow Highlighter, £16.50
The best brow neatener I’ve ever used. I will legit cry when this finishes. Makes my brows pop without any effort whatsoever. I outline my brows with this, smudge it with a brush and they look amazing. Real HD effect with little effort.
8. L’Oréal Brow Artist Sculpt in 01 Blonde, £5.99
Slightly difficult to get on with at first but I have grown to love this product. The blonde colour is perfect for my eyebrows, and the brush has a clever double side. One part you can use to add colour and definition, the other is an eyebrow brush which you can use to neaten the hairs. AND it lasts forever!
