Makeup I Am Currently Loving...

Since I didn't do a December favourites, and it's a little late now, I thought that I would share with you five makeup products that I have been using a lot lately. Some are rediscoveries and some are completely new that I have fallen in love with.


I am going to start with the makeup brushes, I got these for Christmas off my parents because I did ask for them, and I am so pleased with them. They are by Real Techniques and they are the duo fibre set. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know that I swear by my Rucci Professional large duo fibre stippling brush, but I know how hard it is to get hold of so I wanted to find something similar to it but from Superdrug. This set comes with three brushes, two for the face and one for the eyes. I have not used the eye brush just yet because I am still trying to figure out what to use it for because it is a bit unique. Anyway, the two face brushes I have been living for recently. There is a large fluffy one which is amazing and a smaller, more dense one which I have been loving for foundation. Both apply and blend product beautifully and I hope that you can still get hold of this! Also noticed that they are 20% off right now, so get them before they go because they are limited edition.

Next up we have a concealer, which I finally got my right shade in. It is the LA Girl Pro Concealer Concealer, I actually now have this concealer in three shades because online, the shades are a little dodgy but I finally got a shade that matches me. When I had the wrong colour, I felt as thought I could give a fair review on it so now that I finally have my shade I can call my final verdict, it is amazing! This concealer is a mixture of medium coverage and lightweight, it is beautiful. It is very comparable to the Naked Skin Concealer by Urban Decay because it is super lightweight, blendable, pigmented and has a lovely finish. One thing I don't like is the packaging but I can handle it for the amazing product inside.

Now I am going to go onto a blush and bronzing duo that I have finally gotten round to using. Last year in March, I went to Orlando on holiday and I obviously did some makeup shopping and I picked up an Elf Blushing and Bronzing Duo in St. Lucia, but it has been sitting in the back of my draws for almost a year and I have finally pulled it out to try it. I have mostly been using the bronzer because it is such a lovely colour, it is quite neutral which is different for me because all of my other bronzers are very warm. It also had gold glitter in it which I think will look great in the warm months. The blush I have not really played with too much because when I swatch it, it is very powdery and has a lot of chunky glitter in it, which isn't really my style. I will keep try it out but I love this duo anyway because the bronzer is so good.

Moving onto brows, recently I have really been liking a softer brow look, something a little more natural. You all know I love my ABH brow pomade but it is quite heavy so I wanted a powder that would help me achieve something lighter. I bought this one from Freedom, it's their Duo Brow Powder and mine it in the shade soft brown. At the moment, I have been loving this, the colour is great, the colour is super pigmented and it blends really well. I use both colours, the lighter one nearer the front and the darker one at the end, and I love the effect it leaves. This is definitely something I would recommend to anyone, it's a great little compact and it is a few pounds which is hard to believe.

The last product I am going to mention today is a new mascara. I am on the hunt for a mascara that is just as good or even better then my Maybelline one. This one by Benefit it close, it is their Bad Gal Lash mascara. I am not a fan of Rollerlash and They're Real is good but I love Bad Gal. The wand is huge but I like that for my upper lashes because it grabs every lash. It is super black and I find that it really helps lengthen and hold my curl. I will keep having to test it to see whether it can beat my Maybelline one, but this is definitely a gooden that I think should be talked about more.

What have you been loving lately?

  3. I tried the LA Girl concealer a long, long time ago & wasn't the biggest fan. I ended up giving it away to a friend. How do you like it apply it?

    1. I just apply it in a triangle under my eyes and anywhere else I want to highlight and then I will blend it with a sponge. xx
