A few beauty favourites

July 27 2016


I’ve been itching to let you all in on these amazing products I’ve fallen in love with recently! It’s summertime (although the cool and cloudy weather today is making me question this, sun better come out tomorrow) and holiday season too, and they are serving very well!

~ ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS “Sweets” Glow Kit | £30.00 (sourcing link!) ~

Oh and what a glow this kit gives!!! My favourite is “Taffy”, it’s so soft and warm on my skin. I apply it using a fan brush onto my cheek plain, centre of my nose and above my lips for the perfect glowy finish! It also looks great on all skin tones and I love that I can mix all four to create custom finishes for the face and eyes!


BECCA COSMETICS Ever Matte Poreless Primer | £27.00 ~

I took this with me on my last holiday, and where we went temperatures were very high, and there were days I did want to apply makeup. Using this before my makeup filled in my pores, smoothed out the skin and kept my makeup intact! It’s a must have!


MAC Face & Body Foundation “C6” (50ml)| £20.00 ~

Perfect foundation to achieve a very natural look. It looks and feels like second skin, and the great thing is you can I can use this on other parts of my body on blemishes. It doesn’t transfer as much as my other foundations and that’s a plus!


RALPH LAUREN “Romance” EDP (100ml) | £71.00 ~

In love with this perfume. I’d had the pocket version for the longset time and had to get the full size bottle. The fresh aqua scent is just divine! My current staple scent!


~ NYX Lip Lingerie in “Ruffle Trim” & “Baby Doll” | £9.00 ~

Ombre matte lips are lush, and applying Ruffle Trim (Mauvy Pink) on the outer lip with Baby Doll (Baby Pink) in the centre has been my go to lip look for a while! Love it!

    I just bought into Colour Pop matte lippies, and to be honest, I prefer the lip liner more than anything. It gives me the perfect brown/nude pout.

    Would you believe I own no perfumes?!!?!?! I only have them when someone buys for me, and since everyone noticed it would take me a year to go through a bottle, they stopped buying them 🙁 In place of that though, I got some oils from Body Shop – my favorite is jasmine!

    These all sound great. My favorite is the glow kit. I love enhancing my skin with a bit of shimmer in my skin during the summertime!

    The perfume is a great pick, I loved using it. The Becca primer seems to do a great job for most people. Can’t wait to try it xx

    Hi I also own the romance perfume is such a sweet smelling perfume never gets old been around for a while, but most probably will be, also I have never tried Nyx products and I wanted to buy the matte lip creams/lipsticks and the lingerie ones but wasn’t sure on the outcome does anyone have any other suggestions from that brand? & I would like to purchase a new concealer but I’m not sure what to go through trying to find one that covers my dark circles and puffy eye bags. Any suggestions, also I love your blog so fresh and up to date keep doing you girl!! Xx
