March Monthly Favourites

27 Mar

It’s been a little while since I’ve done a favorites post so I thought I show you the products that I’ve been using most through March.  I decided to do something a little different with the pictures rather just having  a white background, and I’d love to know what you prefer 🙂

First up is Clarins Daily Energizer Cream – I’ve been using this everyday since I bough it and it is definitely my favourite moisturiser at the moment and I really don’t see myself trying a new for quite a while.  I review it in full here.

Kate Moss Lipstick in 02 – I’ve been a big fan of bright lips recently and this has been my favourite bright lipstick this month.  It’s a gorgeous bright pink which looks amazing for Spring/Summer and I can see it being used quite a bit in the upcoming months.  If you fancy seeing some swatches of it click here.

Barry M Flawless Matte Finish Foundation – I’ve been using this everyday since I got it and it’s the best matte foundation that I’ve tried.  I don’t want to go in to too much detail about it as I’m planning on doing a full review of it soon 🙂

Maybelline Baby Skin Primer – I love this primer and use it almost everyday.  It’s really light weight, helps to minimize pore and makes sure your make-up stays put all day.  It could be the perfect primer.

Models Co Lip Pencil – I got this free with a magazine (think it might have been Glamour?) and I’ve been using quite a bit.  It’s got a little sharpner in the lid meaning that you can sharpen it whenever you need to.  It’s nude in colour meaning that it goes with any lipstick.  (If you want a full review of it, just let me know).

 

So that’s my March favourites!  I hope that you liked them and I would love to know what you think of the photos 🙂  Do you prefer just plain white or would you rather see something like this?

Favourites of 2013

31 Dec

I can’t believe that 2013 is almost over and that this will be my last post this year! This year seems to have gone so fast and I really feel that my blog has grown so much this past year.  I’ve started blogging more consistently since January and can really see how much it’s changed looking back on it now.  I even took part in my first blogging challenge in September which you can see here. My aim for next year is to continue to work even harder on improving my blog and try and make sure I post at least three times a week.  I’m also determined to do more fashion related post in 2014 as I feel like I’ve not done a many as I would have liked.

I haven’t done a favourites post since September as I felt that I was using some of the same products and didn’t want to post the same things as the month before.  So on to the favourites of the year;

Face

face

Sleek Rose Gold – This is definitely a favourite among bloggers.  This blush is such a gorgeous shade and would suit so many shades of skin tone.  It’s perfect for during the summer as it has a lovely gold shimmer running through it.

Collection Illuminating Concealer – I love this concealer as it really helps to conceal and brighten up the eye area.  I also love using this to highlight my under my brows and my cheekbones.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose – This has 5 shades which can be used alone or all swirled together to create a lovely shimmery pink shade.  This can be used on cheeks or can be used as eyeshadows.

Olay BB Cream – This first BB cream that I’ve tried and I love it!  I provides a light coverage and is perfect for days when you don’t feel like wearing a heavy foundation.

Eyes

Eyes

Urban Decay Eye Shadow Pencil in Clinic – This thick and chunky eye pencil is great for sweeping over lids and providing highly pigmented lasting colour.  Clinic is a gorgeous dark green with shimmer particles through it.

Sleek Lagoon Palette – This limited edition palette came out back in march and has lots of shimmery, watery looking shades in it.  This palette can create so many different and colourful looks.

N.Y.C City Curls Mascara – This little mascara makes lashes dark black and helps to lengthen and curl them.  This mascara isn’t overly pricey but it’s definitely one of the best that I own!

Eyeko Skinny Liner – I got this free in a magazine but will be purchasing the full size one when this little one runs out.  It creates thick and thin lines and doesn’t budge throughout the day, what more could you ask for?

Lips

Lips

Topshop Mexican Wave – I bought this on a whim and wasn’t really sure about the bright orange colour when it was in the tube but it became one of my favourites throughout the summer and doesn’t look as orange when it’s applied.

Collection Cream Puff in Cotton Candy – This is surprisingly moisturising even though it’s matte.  It last really well and is a gorgeous bight pink shade, which I think is perfect for spring and summer.

N.Y.C Expert Last Lipstick in Traffic Jam – This was the first red lipstick that I bought and I had no idea that I would love it so much.  It lasts really well and is really pigmented.

Barry M Ultra MoisturisingLip Paint in Vicious Violet – This is on of my favourites at the moment and is possibly the most perfect winter shade.  It moisturises and last really well throughout the day.

 

So that’s my favourites of 2013!  Let me know what you think of them 🙂  I also hope that you all have a wonderful New Year 🙂

P.s There will be a little giveaway starting in the first week of the New Year to thank you all for being such lovely followers 🙂

April Favourites

8 May

So here is my April favourites 🙂

April favourites

First is MUA eye-primer which I will be reviewing soon.  I’ve been using this every time that I’ve been waring eyeshadow and it really makes last longer.

Next  up is Hask Argan oil which I use every couple of days which makes my hair nice and shiney.  I also feel that the condition of my hair as really improved since I stared using it. You can see my full review here.

I don’t know how I coped with out Collection Illuminating touch, I’ve been using everyday since I used it.  You can see my full review of it here.

I’ve had this Barry M eyeliner for a while but I’ve started using it a lot more just because it quick to put on in a rush.

Lat but not least another product I’ve been wearing almost daily, my Sleek Rose Gold blush.  I feel that this is a nice summery blush even if it doesn’t really feel like summer in Scotland.  You can see my review here.

Hope you liked my favourites, let me know what you thought 🙂

First is the Nivea Hydration Primer, I have used this product everyday since I bought it and I will be reviewing soon

Next is the Sleek Au Naturel palette which I used to create my Valentine’s Day look, but it’s perfect for creating a nice smokey eye look. (You can find my review of it here)

Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation, I’ve seen good and bad reviews on this and I have to admit at first I wasn’t sure about it but I’ve started using it more and quite like it. (Another product to review soon).

Hask Macadamia oil, I feel that this really increases the shine pf my hair and really love it.

And last but not least my Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in shade 5 which is a gorgeous pink shade.

Hope you liked my favourites, let me know what you thought 🙂

 

January Favourites!

7 Feb

So this is my first ever favourites post 🙂 I love reading these on other peoples’ blogs and thought I’d share with everyone the products that I’d been using most through January.

January favourites

The first is MUA pro-brow pallet, I use this almost everyday as I feel that it helps define eyebrows without making them look too dark.

We also have the Viva La Diva eyeliner in blue lagoon, which I received from Nancy in the beauty blogger swap.

I’ve included my Revlon Kissable Lip Balm Stain which I’ve wore quite a lot recently as it helps moisturize as well as having a nice colour that lasts for hours.

My MUA blush in shade 2 is the first blush I ever bought (a few months ago).  I feel that this gives a nice colour to your cheeks and is easily blended in.

And last but not least is a lip balm from Jewel by India R.  These lip balms are handmade by India-Robyn and have a small crystal on top.  I have the honeyone which is lovely and is great in the cold weather.

Hope you liked my favourites, let me know what you thought 🙂
