SHOP MY FAVOURITES

If I Could Only Pick One Item From...

I was rummaging through my makeup stash the other day and I noticed so many doubles and just like Rebecca, even I noticed the pattern of my product buying- I either have quite a few products from a brand or I haven't enjoyed any products at all from a brand. So if I could only pick one item from some of my favourite brands here are what they would be:

Maxi Delight Bronzer  | £8.99 |  Boots

Little Round Blusher Pots  |  £7.99  | Boots

Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks  | £8.99 |  Boots

Bourjois Paris Maxi Delight Bronzer: Bourjois has an amazing range of blushes! Their Little Round Blusher Pot in Santal was the first ever blush I purchased back when I was 13. Its definitely a timeless blusher, and super pigmented. Their Rough Edition Velvet lipstick which was released earlier this year is also another one of my favourites (review here). It's available in 8 gorgeous colours- so do check them out! However, their Maxi Delight Bronzer has won it for me. Not only is it the perfect bronzing colour for my complexion but it also gives a healthy, glowy finish and can be worn all year round. 
Deep Cleansing Mask  | £14.50 |  John Lewis

Instant Boost Skin Tonic  | £13.25 |  John Lewis

Superskin Concentrate  | £40.50 |  John Lewis

Gentle Face Exfoliator  | £14.00 |  John Lewis

Hot Cloth Cleanse & Polish  | £13.25 |  John Lewis

Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate: As you know, the Liz Earle range takes up so much space on my dresser. It's the most effective, affordable high end product I own and I can't stress how amazing it works on my skin. Since my acne breakout, I have used the Cleanse & Polish (review here) in conjunction with the Skin Tonic (review here), Deep Cleansing Mask (review here) and and Gentle Face Exfoliator (review here) to maintain clear and healthy looking skin. The Superskin Concentrate (review here) is my ultimate favourite by far. As soon as I breakout with a spot, by using this as a night time moisturiser, it dries out the spot till it disappears. It's also great for treating pigmented areas. 


True Match Foundation  | £9.99 |  Boots

Million Lashes Range  | £10.99 |  Boots

LOreal Paris Million Lashes So Couture: The LOreal True Match foundation has been one of my favourite drugstore foundations. It is lightweight, easy to blend and has a wide range of colours. The Million Lashes So Couture is my perfect mascara (look here). After 2 coats, I'm definitely good to go and it really does look like I have fake lashes on! I definitely think I should explore the LOreal range a bit more, what do you guys recommend? 

Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick Range  | £5.49 |  Boots

Nail Polish Range  | £3.69 - £4.49 |  Boots

Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil: Rimmel's Kate Moss lipstick range has some amazing, pigmented colours (I think I have them all, obsessed much?). They have a colour to suit every complexion and are dead cheap. Like Barry M, Rimmel have a wide range of nail varnishes which are available in different finishes; matte, scented, glitter and shiny. They are famously known for their '60 second' polishes which does exactly what it says on it tin. The eyebrow pencil is the best brow filler I have ever used! It is long-wearing, easy to control and comes with a brow brush- that's 2-in-1 right there.



Studio Skin 15 Hour Hydrating Foundation  | £28.00 |  Boots

Primer Range  | £12.50 - £28.00 |  Boots

Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation: Smashbox is known for their popular wide range of primers for every type of skin. They are a bit on the pricey side, however, you only need a pea-size amount to cover the whole face. I've used the hydrating primer and the photo finish foundation and they make a great base for your favourite foundation. My favourite foundation ever has to be Smashbox Studio Skin. Its the only foundation which is my exact skin tone and is lightweight and hydrating with great coverage. It does not transfer, melt off or leave the skin feeling oily. 



Sunshield Superfluid  | £15.00 |  Boots

Supercat Liner  | £6.00 | Boots

Kick Ass Pressed Powder  | £12.00 |  Boots

One Heck of A Blot  | £12.00 |  Boots

Soap & Glory Sunshield Superfluid SPF 50+: The entire Soap & Glory bath and body range have such edible scents that I could just eat them all (please don't try this at home). The fabulous Supercat liner is an amazing intense black and very easy to use- its just like using a pen! I've heard great things about their Kick Ass Pressed Powder and One Heck Of A Blot so I must definitely get hold of those. I have to go for their shocking SPF 50+ Sunshield Superfluid, whoever thought an SPF that high would be available for so cheap? I have listed this as an A* moisturiser for acne prone skin (read here) however, it's great for all skin types. 


Baked Bronzers  | £3.95 |  Elf website

Lipsticks  | £1.95 |  Elf website

Brush set  | £12.00 | Elf website

Elf Baked Bronzer in Los Cabos: Elf is a great American cosmetics brand with quality products for low prices. I have their brush set which was my first brush collection. It's great for beginners, affordable and does the job. I also own 2 of their basic lipsticks in Posh and Seductive. They are gorgeous pinks which are highly pigmented and moisturising. I saw their Baked Bronzer first on full-time blogger/vlogger Judy (itsjudytime, itsjudyslife, itsmommyslife). It looked the perfect bronzing colour and I just had to get my hands on that beauty! And I'm glad I did!


Eyeshadow Palettes  | £7.99 |  Boots

Contour Kit  | £6.49 |  Boots

Lipsticks  | £4.99 |  Boots

Brow Kit  | £8.49 |  Boots

Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit in Medium: Sleek has a huge range of lipsticks. They come in so many different shades and finishes such as matte and sheen which are my favourites. My favourite bold lipsticks are all from Sleek, so do check them out. Sleek has to be my overall favourite drugstore brand. From lipsticks to blushers, brow kits to eyeshadow palettes and matte lip glosses to my favourite- their contour kit. It comes in 'sleek' packaging which a dark, matte pressed powder and an illuminating highlighter.
