Well Loved Products.





To start off my recently loved products, I need to give Sienna X a mention - they recently sent me their Q10 Bronzing Mousse, which I'm overdue to do a review on and I've absolutely fallen in love. It's not overwhelmingly dark when you first apply it, it looks like milk chocolate but it smells incredible and blends like a dream. If you're a lover of fruity scents and a fake tan addict, you need to give this a try - it leaves you a really lovely, realistic colour and fades without patching. Base wise, I've returned to an old flame, Estee Lauder Double Wear, it stays put, looks flawless, covers all and doesn't leave me a greasy mess which is all I ask for in a foundation. Recently I've taken to mixing it in with a luminous base product for an added glow. To conceal I've been enjoying the Chanel Perfection Long Lasting Concealer. This stuff is amazing, it has an almost whipped texture which means it blends in to nothing whilst covering a multitude of sins - it doesn't settle in to any fine lines or cake up during the day. To set my base I've been loving the Bourjois Healthy Mix powder which is light and doesn't leave you looking overly matte.
When it comes to eyes, I never stray from my old faithful Mac Paintpot in Soft Ocre, it's just the best thing ever, if you don't have it - you need it. I've not been in to eyeshadow lately, instead opting for just a matte cream shade, which you can find absolutely everywhere. I still love my liquid liner, I've recently discovered Soap & Glory's Supercat Eyeliner Pen which is fool proof to use. For lashes, the latest mascara from Mayelline - the Lash Sensational is a big winner for me, it has a rubber wand with teeny tiny teeth that grab every lash and you can really build drama. It also doesn't smudge under the bottom lashes which is a common issue for me. I've returned to white eyeliner on the waterline, I use Mac's but you can pick them up from everywhere - this or light beige shade.
When it comes to finishing touches, I've fallen for the Anastasia Beverley Hills Contour Kit which I wasn't a fan of when I first got it. I now fully appreciate its worth, I see the light. I love the pale yellow for setting around the eyes, the shimmery shade for highlighting and a mix of all three contour shades to sculpt and add warmth around my temples, nose and cheeks. When it comes to lips, I still love a matte or satin finish - I'm not interested in a gloss. I absolutely adore Mac's Faux lipstick which is the perfect lip shade, sometimes I highlight the centre of my lip with Fleshpot too just to add dimension.

I also need to mention the Body Shop Body Sorbet moisturisers, they smell delicious, hydrate without the hideous sticky feeling and did I mention - they smell DELICIOUS?! I've also been loving DKNY's Dreamsicle perfume which is peachy, fruity goodness in a bottle - if you love sweet scents give this a try as it's limited edition. Other sweet smelling lovelies worth a mention are Nina Ricci's Les Delices de Nina perfume, which has the tackiest bottle but the most gorgeous scent, the latest Escada release, Turquoise Summer is also a winner.
