2016 Beauty Favourites!

Hi my lovelies,

Award season is upon us, so I’m giving out my very own awards to my most used and best loved products from 2016! Today’s (rather belated, I’m afraid) post is going to be all about my absolute fave beauty products and other things from 2016! Some of these you’ll have seen me rave about and some I’ve been using quietly for a long time, and only realised how much I loved them once I’ve used it all up! Some of these are long time faves too, and you’ll probably not have seen them on this blog before, but I haven’t managed to find anything that beats them out this year! I love reading this type of post, and I hope you’ll all like this one too! Let’s get stuck in!

  • Bioderma Micellar Cleanser

This is one of those “I meant to review this ages ago and never did” products that I bought to see whether it was worth the hype. It totally is! I struggle to find cleansers that don’t strip my skin or irritate my sensitivity, and this cleanses, removes my makeup and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight afterwards like a lot of micellar cleansers do. I’m halfway through my second bottle, which speaks for itself.

Beauty Top 5 – Current Fave Eyeshadow Palettes! (Blogmas, day 20)

Hi my lovelies,

Welcome back to Blogmas! When I sat down to think up some posts for this month, I realised how long it’s been since I posted a Beauty Top 5! One of my favourite makeup items to buy (apart from lip products because seriously, I have a problem and probably need to seek therapy for my addiction) is eyeshadows and eyeshadow palettes, and I thought today I’d share all of my current faves with you! Tell me what your faves are down in the comments please!

Now there are definitely a lot of warm, neutral shadows in here as they’re my favourites to wear, and neutrals are easiest to do on a daily basis – let’s see which palettes I’ve been using the most lately, shall we?

(Slightly Belated) September Faves & Fails!

Hi my lovelies,

Happy October! We’re now into autumn (my favourite season!) , my jumpers and sweatshirts have come back into my clothes rotation as the weather turns colder, and I have my eye on a brand new pair of boots! The slow cooker is coming in handy with warming food and soups, and I get to switch up my beauty routine! Also: Halloween!! The transition from summer to autumn has been less than smooth (the weather can’t make up it’s mind), and my skin has been suffering a little lately – today we’re here to talk about the good and the bad for September, so let’s get stuck in!

August Faves and Fails!

Hi my lovelies,

A little belated, but here’s the list of things that I’ve been loving and loathing through the month of August! There’s definitely a big mix of items in here this month, from Makeup, skincare, Tv, books and music,  so grab a cuppa and settle in for August’s list!

The Faves:

  • Spectrum Marbleous Brushes – face20160820_161809

 

If you follow me on twitter or Instagram, you’ll know that I had a disaster with one of the old set of these I had, as one brush completely broke. The company (big props to Spectrum) were super nice and offered to replace it, but sent me an entire new set of brushes!! I love the new brushes even more than the old ones, and I’m particularly in love with the Contour Brush, the Large powder brush (perfect for a big sweep of bronzer), and the angled Stippling brush! A definite one to try out for anyone looking for new brushes!

I’d love to see your versions of this too, so feel free to do your own post and tag me so I can read it! I nominate you all to make your own products I always repurchase post!

July Beauty Faves! (And a couple of fails)

Hi my lovelies,

Another month has flown by super quickly, and so I have some more products to share with you that I have been loving over July, and a few that I haven’t! we’ll start off with the positives first, and there are some skincare, some makeup, and as always some random items! Apologies for this post being slightly late, but I’ve been swamped with work this week, and the one day I wasn’t I was out literally the whole day. It’s a long one though, so (hopefully) worth the wait!

In July I also hit a milestone for this blog – 100 posts! So I just want to thank all of you guys for sticking with me so far and I can’t wait to see what the future brings!

Let’s get started, shall we?

20160731_143129

  • Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Mask
  • Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight mask 

It’s safe to say that July has been the month of face masks for me, and three of them have cropped up in my faves this month! With the weather being so dry lately, my combination skin has been hating me and so I used every moisturising product in my beauty collection this month to try and combat the dry patches while still not getting too oily and it is a fragile balance, my friends. So I’ve really been loving these two to give my skin the much needed hydration!

June Beauty Faves!

Hi my lovelies,

Can you believe that half the year has gone already? I’m not sure (and a little worried) about where six whole months has passed since I first started this blog (it was back in late December), but it’s been such a great experience so far and I’m looking forward to what the future holds for me and my little blog! Thanks to all you lovely people for sticking with me so far!

Anyway, here are the products I’ve been using and loving throughout June! Yet again I have loads of things to share with you, so let’s start with makeup!

  • Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Palette

It’ll be no surprise to any of you that this is in my faves this month! This palette, however cumbersome the packaging is, is beautiful, the shadows are super buttery and pigmented, and I love how there are so many versatile shades to use in here! For a full review with swatches, have a look here!
