1. Benefit Hoola Bronzer

I’ve never been much of a bronzer girl, I always contour to slim my chubby cheeks down but It’s just not something I’ve ever felt like buying a high-end version of. It’s a lovely colour, not too orange but not to brown toned. Whether you’re a bronzer girl, contour girl or both, this is perfect for all.

2. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

If you haven’t heard of this concealer yet, then you’re clearly not a blog reader or avid YouTube watcher like me. It’s probably one of the most talked about drugstore concealers ever. I stopped using this for a while and I don’t know why, It gives such good coverage and not only that its super affordable. I don’t use this under my eyes because I think it’s a bit too heavy for such a delicate area. Why spend out when you can find such an amazing drugstore concealer.

3. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder

Another very talked about product on blogs and Youtube. This is a lovely drugstore powder, I have the shade ‘Sandstorm’ which is perfect for me. This powder can look really natural on the skin, it gives you a little coverage, is super affordable and sets your make up in place. Job well done.

4. L’Oreal Lumi Magique Concealer

Another amazing drugstore product. This is my favourite under eye concealer at the moment, It’s not too heavy for the delicate under eye area,  gives coverage and highlights. This can also be used to highlight cheek bones, brow bones and the cupids bow.

5. Mac Mebla Blush

This is my go to blusher. Its one of MACs very well-known blushes and I can see why. I think it’s a shade that would suit many skin tones, it’s a soft coral peach. It’s such a wearable shade and gives you a warm peachy complexion to your cheeks.

1. Maybelline Falsies Mascara

This is one of my favourite drugstore mascaras ever. It’s so easy to work with, you don’t have to apply layers and layers to get full long lashes. Two coats and my lashes have a lot of volume and length. I can’t speak highly enough about this mascara, try it!

2. & 4. Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eyeshadow

The thing that I was most drawn to about these eyeshadows where the fact they reminded me of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo Eyeshadows, not only that but these two gorgeous shades Bronze and Copper. They are a strange mousse-like creamy consistency and I love these used all over the eyelid paired with other shadows in the crease or used together. I have noticed some creasing after a long time wearing these alone on the eye lid, but all in all I really do love the shades and look of these on the eyes.

3. MAC Quad & Eyeshadows

From left to right, Shroom, Woodwinked, Wedge and Swiss Chocolate.

These are my first ever eyeshadows by MAC and I love creating looks with this quad. MAC describes shroom as a soft beige with shimmer, woodwinked as a warm antiqued gold, Wedge as a soft muted beige taupe and Swiss Chocolate as a muted reddish-brown. They all work together so well to create different looks, from day time natural looks to smokey looks. Although, I’m really unimpressed with Wedge, getting the swatch above was nearly impossible, I’m not sure if I just got a dodgy one.

1. & 2. MAC Lip Pencil (Stripdown) & MAC Lipstick (Honey Love)

 This has been currently favourite nude lip pencil and lipstick combo. In the picture above Stripdown looks a lot browner than it is and it looks very different on the lips. MAC describes Stripdown lip pencil as a creamy brown-beige, and Honey Love lipstick as a matte light beige tone with rose. It’s a very different shade nude to what I’ve had before as its more beige toned rather peachy toned, but it’s really grown on me and it’s quite moisturising for a matte lipstick.

2. Nuxe Reve De Miel Lipbalm

This is my all time favourite lip balm. Its one of the best lip balms you will ever try, it is a pricey £9.50 but I think it’s worth every penny. I apply this once before I do my makeup and once before bed and I never need to re apply it through out the day, unless my lips are particularly dry. I find some lip balms are moisturising whilst sitting on your lips, but once its worn off you need to re apply it. This is a thick, citrus scented and extremely hydrating lip balm. If you have chapped lips, this is your new best friend, you wont regret it.

3. MAC Lipstick (Crosswires)

Crosswires and Honey Love have both been my go to lipsticks in the month of February and I don’t see that changing any time soon. MAC describes this as a clean pinky orange. The formula of this is a creme sheen, which is MACS creamiest and most moisturising formula, which is why this lipstick is so comfortable to wear. It’s the perfect in-between bright and nude shade. Perfect for everyday wear.

December Beauty Favourites.

Here are some of the my beauty favourites from December, hope you all had a lovely December, Happy New Year! ♥


     Bourjois Paris Intense Smoky Eyeshadow & Liner 

This month I have been loving this trio, the name of it is ‘Rose Twiste’ and the colours are perfect winter shades. The lighter shade is a pinky, champagne colour, which I have just been applying all over the eye lid, then I go in with the darker colour which is a lovely almost burgundy colour and apply this through the crease of my eye. It’s not as scary as it sounds I promise and if the colours are a bit too red or you want to tone it down a bit then just run a nice brown shade through your crease over the top! I was pleasantly surprised with the eye liner in this too, it looked a bit dry in the palette as if it was going to be hard to apply, but it’s not, it’s really easy to work with, I use a small angled brush to apply it along my lash line and finish of with a little flick on the outer corner of my eyes. It goes lovely with the two eye shadow colours, the colour is like the darker eye shadow shade only deeper, less red and more brown.

 Bourjois Paris Chocolate Bronzer

 I ran out of the contour colour in my Sleek contour kit and thought I would try something new to contour my chubby cheeks with! I had heard a lot of good things about this bronzer so I thought I’d give it a go. The colour is subtle enough to contour my cheeks without looking orange,It’s a really nice matte finish, it says on the packaging ‘filled with glints of sunshine’ but I wouldn’t say it was shimmery at all, maybe slightly under the light.  I have been applying this with my Real Techniques Blush brush, I find its tapered enough to get into my cheek bones, and fluffy enough to blend out the bronzer leaving a nice natural contour and colour to my face.

HD Brows Blusher

I received this in a Glossybox a while ago, and I had heard a lot of good things about HD brows and their eyebrow palettes. I didn’t know they made a few other products as well, so I was pretty excited to try this blusher out. It’s a lovely colour, just the right amount of pink with peachy tones and gold shimmer running through it. When I first saw this it reminded me a lot of The NARS Orgasm blush, which I have wanted to try forever, I have just been applying this to the apples of my cheeks with my Real Techniques Blush Brush, to give myself a nice flushed glow on my cheeks.

  bareMinerals Deluxe Original SPF 15 Foundation  in the shade Fairly Light

I was lucky enough to receive this bareMinerals foundation for Christmas this year, I’ve had this foundation before and I loved it then too. This is the biggest pot they do, with a crystal style lid, which can I just say, I love the packaging its much nicer than the normal pots of bareMinerals! I have a feeling you can only buy the Deluxe foundation of QVC as that’s where my mum got it. This foundation does not leave my skin feeling heavy or powdery, it goes on so nice leaving my skin looking flawless, it has good coverage for a powder foundation and it’s so light it feels as if you’re not even wearing foundation. If you have trouble with your foundation wearing off through the day or oily skin, I would really recommended this as its very mattifying and doesn’t leave you feeling like your foundation is sliding around on your skin.

 Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Liner

 I have tried lots of liquid eye liners and this is probably my favourite drug store one I’ve tried so far.  I need an eye liner that’s going to stay put as I am not the most careful person when it comes to making sure I don’t touch my face and eyes during the day and I think this eye liner is pretty good at staying put through out the day. It’s easy to apply and it’s a really good black, which sounds strange but there’s nothing worse than a liquid eye liner that doesn’t come out very dark and is almost like a watery grey colour. The other thing I like about this eye liner is it doesn’t stop working half way through applying it, I have found with a lot of other eye liners I spend the majority of the time shaking it trying to get it to start working again, when its a nearly new eye liner.

Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer 

I bought the colour Big Bang especially to wear on Christmas day, I hadn’t tried the Rimmel Lip Laquers until this one and I really like it. It’s like a combination of a lip stain, lip gloss and lipstick, it’s so pigmented and feels really glossy on the lips. I think the lasting power of this is quite good once its dried a little, when just applied be careful as it’s really easy to smudge it.

Chella Ivory Lacey Highlighter Pencil

I haven’t heard much about this brand but I received this in a Birchbox not too long ago. You can use this as an eyeliner on your waterline to really open up your eyes, which is what I have been doing. It has many uses though, such as applying to your brow bone, down the centre of your nose, on your cupids bow and applied around the lips to prevent lipstick bleed. I’m not sure how well this product stays on my waterline, but I really like the effect it gives and how much it opens up your eyes making them look more awake.

Nail Rock Glitter Red 

I thought I would include this in my favourites as this is pretty much what I wore everyday during the Christmas period. I won’t go on about this as I have written a post on it already, so if you would to find out more about this nail product you can find that HERE.
