Generally, we try out lots of different beauty products and bits and bobs that claim to do something that, a lot of the time, they just don’t do. What with social media and the constant flow of advertising, my expectations of products are quite high. It’s very annoying when you spend £25 on a lipstick for it to be no better than an £8 one. It’s a shame that I actually find it quite surprising when a beauty product works how I expect it to, but these are the products that I genuinely love, buy over and over again and would struggle to live without.
Makeup Revolution Girls on Film Palette
Coppers and pinks, need I say more? For just £4 this eyeshadowbpalette is an absolute steal and I’ve got so much use out of mine.
Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks
These have been my favourite lipsticks for quite a while. Since I first tried them last year I’ve picked up loads more colours and they’re definitely my most used lipsticks. They’re such good quality and they don’t rub off when you eat or drink (and they smell like chocolate, always good). There’s a separate post on these here.
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream
My auntie bought this for me and I didn’t really know what to expect as I’d never used anything from Elizabeth Arden before. It’s such a great multi-purpose cream that’s good for so many different things, but I find it particularly effective as a lip balm.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
The great thing about being a blogger is that you get to find out which products are really good. This was one of those products that lots of people talked about and when I saw it in Sephora, Barcelona, I decided to give it a go. It is now my favourite mascara – I’m yet to find something that tops it!
The Body Shop Brushes
These are the softest, smoothest makeup brushes I’ve found so far. Since I discovered these I don’t know how I ever used my old brushes, they were so tough compared to these! There’s a separate post on these here.
