Beauty Favourites

Beauty Favourites
There hasn't been a lot of beauty things out there that have really wow'd me recently mostly due to the fact I haven't been shopping for quite awhile now sad sad times. Therefore a lot of my favourites here are products I've had for awhile or have been sent out to me. So today I decided to share with you all some of the beauty bits I am currently loving.

Cafe De Bain Coconut Macaroon Shower Cream
What's not to love about this product? It looks appealing, has an amazing flavour and does the job! I spotted this shower cream in Superdrug awhile back and haven't been able to bring myself to use it until recently. I love macaroons and the smell of coconut so combining these into a shower cream makes me very happy and excited. This smells so delicious and since it is a cream and not a gel the formula doesn't slide out of my hands like a shower gel would therefore nothing gets wasted. I love everything about this flavour so I must pick up some more!

Bumble & Bumble Thickening Hairspray
I got this product a good year ago now it was in one of the Elle magazines I think but only recently have I decided to start using it. This product helps bring my hair to life, there is nothing more annoying than having flat, no-volume hair (especially if curled). I like to spray this maybe midway down my hair and just scrunch a little. It is a gluey hairspray therefore I avoid using this on my roots. I just think this helps add a bit of volume to my hair and gives it a little bit of a boost for a couple of hours.

Origins Ginzing Moisturizer
I got this moisturizer in a set at Christmas and only for the past month have I decided to trial it out. I love the brand Origins it always helps sort my skin out but when it comes to moisturizers I tend to fade away from it. I don't think I would pay the price for this moisturizer alone but I can totally understand why it is an expensive product. This has done wonders for my oily skin. It smells lovely for starters very sweet and fruity which is always pleasant to be putting on my skin in the mornings and evenings. I just find when I use this moisturizer my makeup stays in place for a lot longer time and I have noticed I am rarely having to touch up throughout the day. I will be devastated on the day this product runs out.

NARS Descanso Satin  Lip Pencil
I go through stages of wearing a bright red or purple, to a subtle pink, to a nude lip and that is kind of how the process always goes from dark to light. At the moment I have been wearing this lip pencil everyday for a good few weeks now. It goes on so nicely and lasts such a long time, I can see why these are so highly rated because they are incredibly pigmented which means they will be in my makeup drawer for quite sometime. Definitely try this out if you like a bit of a orange toned nude shade, perfect for spring and summer, I would say this colour suits anybody.

The Claudia Louch Clinic Lashware Mascara
This was sent out to me a few weeks ago and I've been using this as a sort of 'mascara primer' in some ways. This mascara is brilliant for separating out all of my lashes, it doesn't give much volume if that is what you look for but it definitely has a more 'natural' look about it. I like to apply this on my lashes to separate them all out, I then apply my Benefit They're real then go over again using this mascara for my bottom lashes. It doesn't smudge or give me panda eyes which as you know is one thing I look for in mascaras!

Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro Palette*
There is nothing more exhilarating for a beauty fanatic to come across a dupe product that will be saving you an arm and a leg. This eyeshadow palette from Makeup Revolution is very similar to the pricey Lorac Pro. This matte finish packaging has a more 'classy' look compared to most of Makeup Revolutions palettes which made me even more excited to try it out. This palette has 8 mattes and 8 shimmer eyeshadows and as you know by now I much prefer a shimmer to the mattes. However I find myself using a mixture of both from this palette. The colours go on so nicely and with an eye primer last me all day long - for £6.99 can't go wrong!

  1. I haven't tried any of these products yet but they all sound lovely, especially the coconut macaroon shower gel. I'm loving my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, my Boi-ing concealer and my Naked on the Run palette right now.
