Day 12: Current Top 5 Beauty Favourites!

A bit of a random post today, but I just wanted to share with you some products I have been living for recently, even though I will probably do a favourites post at some point near the end of the month I am just in the mood to write a currently loving post. There will also be a fashion edition coming at the end of the week so you can all look forward to that.

Marc Jacobs Daisy - I have no idea which daisy perfume this is because I can never keep up with how many different versions they have but this perfume is beautiful. Most of my scents are very summery so I have been looking for a scent to wear around this time of the year, and this one is perfect. It is very sophisticated and sexy, but it is not too sweet or fruity which I like. I think this is a great all year round scent and it is what I have been wearing a lot recently.

Superdrug Vitamin E Moisture Cream - I think I am actually going to include this skincare range in my monthly favourites because I have been loving it that much but I can't help myself. I use this as a night cream, and it is so good. It has really helped to hydrate my skin throughout these colder months. I also wanted to include this because I know a lot of my readers are actually cruelty free when it comes to beauty products and so I wanted to test out some skincare which is just as good as brands like Simple and Nivea but ones that are cruelty free so the products can suit everyone that way.

Mac Lipstick in Velvet Teddy - I know this kind of contradicts what I have just said about cruelty free beauty products and everything but I can't help how good this lipstick is. Velvet Teddy is such a beautiful shade and it is perfect for this time of year, it is a dark nude and it has a matte finish. I love this lipstick because it looks different every time I wear it. When I am more pale it looks like a dark brown/ purple but when I am more tanned it looks like a nude.

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream - This cream is everything! There are so many uses for this cream, you can use it as a lip balm, mix it with your moisturizer for extra hydration, burns, cuticle oil, literally anything. I love this as a lip balm though. Recently my lips have been so super dry and this is the only thing that will make them nice and super soft. It is a bit of a pricey product but it is totally worth it.

Leighton Denny Nail Polish in Raspberry Affair - At this time of year, I live for plum nails and this formula is insane. I actually got this in this months edition of Elle magazine but I know you can buy them online. This formula is super opaque and it lasts so long on my nails without chipping, they are just as good as my Barry M ones they just come with a steeper price tag. I have loads of nail polishes in this plum colour but currently this one has been my favourite.

What have you been loving recently?
