Current Favourites

Since I haven't done a favourites post for June yet or one for May, I thought it would be good to do a current favoruites updating you on what I've been loving lately. Some of the products are new favourites and others are old ones that I've fallen back in love with.

I'm still obsessed with nude lipsticks, it's all I ever want to reach for. I haven't been brave enough to buy Velvet Teddy yet but Honey Love is like a lighter brown version of it and I love it. It's also a matte lipstick like Velvet Teddy so it's incredibly long lasting. I've been loving pinky nudes as well and my current favourite one has been my L'oreal Julianne one. If it was a MAC lipstick it would be a 'frost' finish and you can keep it quite sheer or build it up to be more opaque. It's not long lasting but because it is quite affordable, I don't mind having to reapply it a few times.

My favourite fragrance has been The Library of Fragrance Peach scent. This stuff is amazing, it smells exactly like fresh peaches and it's so nice for carrying in your hand bag and spritzing on now and again to freshen up. It's also a really nice one to spray in your hair so you can smell it wafting around you all day. If you're a Library of Fragrance fan and have a few other scents from them you can layer them together with this to create a unique perfume. 

I've been loving my Dusty Girls bronzer at the moment. Although strobing is in full swing just now, I for one still can't let go of the contoured cheek bones and bronzed glow craze. I do love a good highlight but I'm not packing away my bronzer wardrobe just yet! This bronzer is huge, the perfect size for swirling a brush round in. It isn't muddy or orange, just the right shade for both contouring and bronzing up the face for a sun kissed glow. It does have a little shimmer in it but nothing at all obvious. 

Since the weather has been warmer (slightly), I've been loving brighter, more colourful shades on my nails. The one I keep going back to is this baby blue from Nails Inc. I do have a lot of blues but this one seems to be the brightest and most true to a baby blue. It's called 'Wembley' and I got it in a set so it's slightly smaller than most Nails Inc polishes but I think (hope) you can buy it individually in the large size.

My last favourite has been Benefits They're Real mascara. I used to use this a long time ago but swapped it for a cheaper alternative and never really finished using the tube I still had. Recently I've been going to the gym and swimming everyday and I prefer to have a little bit of something on my eyes. I've been using this one because I know how stubborn it is and it's been great because I can do a full work out and swim and theres not a single smudge of mascara on my face! I don't think I'd buy it again though because it is expensive for what it is but I'm enjoying using it up while I still have it.

What are your favourites at the moment?

Lots of Love,
