1. Mini Kabuki Brush – H&M – £2.99
The first beauty product I’m loving at the moment is this little blusher brush by H&M. I just love it mainly because it’s really cute and SO soft. There’s actually not a lot to say about it but the size of the bristles fit perfectly into my blusher sooo I think that’s why I love it so much? I’m not sure but it is VERY soft if I hadn’t already mentioned that… and the rose gold detail is pretty. God I sound like such a girl.
2. Mascara with Argan Oil – Rimmel – £5.99
I have a bit of an obsession with argan oil anyway (cos it makes your hair smell lush etc) and I’m really enjoying this mascara. Not only does it make your lashes long and curly but the thing I love about it is that when it comes to taking it off it’s not a pain in the A! You know when you just wanna free your eyeballs but you’ve got thick, black mascara on that takes ages to budge off and you end up swishing it all round your face with a cotton pad? Really annoying isn’t it. Well you don’t get that with this hoorah!
3. Eyebrow Palette – MUA – £3.50
MUA is just fantastic isn’t it? If you haven’t yet discovered it, it’s sold in Superdrug and it’s soooo cheap but also pretty good. Their eyeshadow palettes are incredible, I swear by them and their highlighter is also rather lovely. This eyebrow palette is nearly always sold out probably because it’s really good and only £3.50! I got the ‘fair-mid’ colour but they do a darker one. It’s made up of a lighter eyebrow powder, a darker one, a highlighter, an eyebrow gel, and angled brush AND some mini tweezers. So ideal, I don’t think I’ll ever use a different palette.
4. Concealer/Highlighter in No.1 – KIKO – £5.50
If you haven’t heard of KIKO you are missing out girrrrrl. I discovered it in Venice and didn’t realise it was in the UK. How delighted I was when I saw it in Westfield Stratford! This concealer was £5.50 and all their make up comes in nice little black boxes (bit like MAC but much cheaper, still just as good though). It looks quite pink but I love it because it goes on really light so it’s perfect for covering dark circles and if you’re into contouring it would be good for that too.
5. Lip Liner No.712- KIKO – £2.50
6. Lipstick No. 602 – KIKO – £6.90
This is the lipstick I wear with the lip liner just FYI and I loveee the two together. This is my go-to day time lip colour. The KIKO lipstick is matte and it’s really soft and quite moisturising, it also actually stays on your mouth for more than one sip of water so that’s always a bonus.
7. Lime Basil and Mandarin Cologne – Jo Malone – £82
8. Chunky necklace – Avenue Laura Boutique – £12
I know it’s not really a beauty product but I’m so in love with this shop at the minute I had to include it. I got this necklace from a little boutique in Bishop’s Stortford called Avenue L Boutique. It really is a little cave of treasure in the form of chunky jewellery and clutch bags galore! I love these jewelled necklaces just to throw on with a plain jumper or top, and instead of spending £35-£40 in Accessorize, ALB have some amazing pieces for half the price and they’re mostly all different! If you don’t live near Bishop’s Stortford then that’s a shame… but take a look at their instagram anyway! – @avenuelboutique.
Hope you enjoyed my round up of things, let me know if you give any a try. PS I’m currently on the hunt for an amazing hair treatment, if anyone can recommend any please let me knowww!
