Hi dolls!! Long time no speak, no?? I’ve missed blogging so, SO much!! As you may (or possibly, may not) know I’ve been super busy for the past month with wedding stuff which meant blogging took a back seat. So, before I bombard you with pictures of the wedding & what not, I thought I’d do a little chit chat post about products that I’ve been loving since I’ve been gone…
Here they are! There’s quite a lot of CHEEK products, I’ve been hitting the good ol’ blush/cheek tints a lot for the past month or so
TINTED EYE ROLL-ON by GARNIER £9.99 – this has been my day-to-day concealer for over a year now. It totally makes me look AWAKE every morning when I’m off to work or going anywhere. It’s a great pick me up. Mine lasted almost a year before I had to get a new one so for the price, it’s well worth it!
ILLUMINATING TOUCH by COLLECTION 2000 £4.99 – I got this a few weeks back (again, for the wedding) as I’ve always wanted a concealer that BRIGHTENS the skin under my eyes & it does exactly that! This is going to be a staple item in my make-up bag. It doesn’t break the bank either!
GOLDEN GAZE by MAC £16 – I got this eye shadow especially for the wedding. It’s a GREAT alternative to a smoky eye! It’s super pigmented & love that it’s two toned too It’s expensive, but it’s limited edition & you get more product in it than their normal eye shadows.
Here they all are BLENDED!
Now it’s time to get onto the cheeks
BAKED BRONZER by URBAN DECAY £20 – I don’t really use a lot of bronzer but this has been my go to product to give my face an extra GLOW. I usually brush some on my nose, forehead & chin or simply on my cheeks when I’m in a rush. There are also some days when I use it as a highlighter too!
HOOLA by BENEFIT £23.50 – I have no idea what I did with my life without this!! I use this to contour & have literally forgotten about my sleek contour kit! It’s again one of the products I’ve been using on a daily basis. There are days where I’ll use this to contour my cheeks without anything else. It’s perfect & best of all… MATTE!
CANDID CORAL by ELF £3.50 – This has become my favourite blush for the past few months. It’s got lovely gold undertones to it which is perfect for summer. The days when I want more oomph on my cheeks, I tend to use BELLA BAMBA.
I’m sure you’ve seen LOTS of posts like this when Glamour had their Benefit reader offer which is when I got some more High Beam & Posie Tint… But another favourite has become my Cha Cha Tint!
CHA CHA TINT by BENEFIT £24.50 – Gorgeous, GORGOUES peachy, coral tint for your cheeks & lips. I LOVE wearing this with my Vegas Volt MAC lip stick.
POSIE TINT by BENEFIT £24.50 (for full size bottle) – When I’m not wearing Candid Coral I’ll automatically pick up my Posie Tint. It give you a GLOWY tint of pink on your cheeks. You can always layer both tints to give your cheeks more colour.
HIGH BEAM by BENEFIT £24.50 (for full size bottle) – I wasn’t the biggest fan of high lighters but every time I’m going out for something, I always tend to put it on to give my face some DIMENSION. I’ll be getting full sized products of High Beam & Posie tint when these are finished, that’s for sure
Last but not least I’ve got these…
ORLY FLASH DRY DROPS £10.50 - I usually paint my nails at random times at night & can’t wait for them to dry. So these flash dry drops came to my rescue! They work wonders!! I’ve tried Sephora and OPI ones but these are way better. I wait about a minute after painting my nails & put one drop of this onto each nail & HEY PRESTO! I’m ready for bed
ORLY CUTICLE OIL+ £11.50 - This sits on my desk at work. I use it EVERYDAY, religiously!! It smells like cola cubes & leaves my cuticles feeling lovely & hydrated
CHERRY CARMEX POT £2.69 - I can’t leave the house, nor can my bag live without Carmex. This flavour is totally yummy! I’m loving that it’s also got an SPF 15 in it… I’ve become an SPF freak recently… Everything I use as a base MUST have an SPF. Carmex overall works like a charm. Hydrates, protects and leaves my lips feeling super soft
What products have you all been loving since I’ve been gone? I’d love to know
P.S – You may have noticed a brand spanking NEW Benefit Mascara in the post… I’ll be doing a review of it very soon… It’s one word; UNBELIEVABLE!
