Product Recommendations...

In the past couple of weeks, I have made a list longer than my arm of all the different beauty and hair products that I am eager to try. These are all based on other blogger recommendations, which means they should be A-MAAAZING right? A few trips into my local beauty departments, and a small fortune spent later, I managed to track down a few of the items on my list, and am excited to share my opinions on them with you! 


Bourjous Magic Nail Polish Remover


I'm sure you've all seen this little pink pot of amazingness before. It's done the rounds of most prestigious bloggers favourites and I am holding my hands up and telling you all that it is just as magic as everyone bangs on about!
It makes nail painting so much less of a chore, and you're not forced to use a whole wad of cotton wool pads trying to get that stubborn red nail varnish off. You just stick your finger the spongey little hole, (minds out of the gutter, people!) wait a couple of seconds and voila! It's as easy as that, and to add to the magic, it smells amazing and leaves your nails and fingers feeling super soft and nourished! I'd give this a million thumbs up any day!

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water


Again, I've heard such good things about various different brands of Micellar water, and having stumbled upon this little bargain (RRP £4.99, but a cheeky £2.99 in Savers!) I was excited to try it. I've always used makeup wipes, not really tapping in to how gross they actually are, so when I heard about this I was excited to see the benefits to my skin and if it would remove my makeup any better. IT IS AMAZING. You barely need to use any of this to do the job - just a few dots on a cotton pad and your makeup literally melts away, even the eyeliner that normally won't budge. Such a beauty must have, I'll never use another makeup wipe again!

Revlon Black Cherry Super Lustrous Lipstick


Having been pinned as the drugstore lip shade of Autumn, I was interested to leave behind my trusty plum MAC and try this little badboy out for a while. I. AM. HOOKED. It is super pigmented and seems to last a hell of a lot longer than my MAC version, which at a fraction of the price is amazing! I find it doesn't bleed onto the skin around my lips either like some other dark lip shades I've tried. I'll definitely be keeping this in my makeup bag for a long while to come!

MUA Undressed Eyeshadow Palette


A funny story comes with this one, as I've actually purchased this twice. The first one I bought met an unfortunate fate with a bedroom wall after being hurtled across the room by my boyfriend mid-strop. As it was an absolute steal at  £4 I didn't mind buying it again as I was enjoying using it...although this time it is staying well out of reach of my delightful other half. Having been labelled as the budget alternative to the Naked palettes, I snapped it up instantly. It does the job for the amount I've paid for it and some of the colours are super pretty and blend brilliantly! The only criticism I have is that a couple of the lighter shades are fairly translucent and not as pigmented as the rest but I'm just being picky! I'd add this to your wishlists if you can't afford the pricier stuff!

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter


At the same time as buying the MUA palette, I picked up this too, after hearing it was a little treasure in itself. At only £3 it has a beautiful marbled texture and is a lovely colour. I found it is quite hard to apply however, which sounds silly from the likes of a powder. I felt like I was applying loads and loads of this and it didn't really show on my skin! I did notice a slight shimmer though eventually so for £3 I can't really complain. I have recently been using Benefit's Watts Up highlighter instead though and found that was a much pricier product but one with instantly better reviews.

Lush Snow Fairy


As you may have seen in previous posts, I am a recent Lush obsessive. In my second trip there in as many days, I went back to pick up this little baby (and a few other little beauties too!). I've seen many an instagram post featuring this so I wanted to see what all the fuss is about. OH SWEET JESUS. It is the best smell I think I have ever been blessed  to smell. Melodramatics aside, it is rather pricey...this little bottle was £7.50 for 250ml! A bit excessive but nice as a little treat and I've heard it makes its way into the Boxing Day sale so I'll definitely be back for more when it's a little cheaper!


What are your must-have items this A/W? I'd love to try out some more of your recommendations!

Always, Alice x

  1. Snow fairy smells phenomenal! But I totally agree, definitely a bit on the expensive side. I recommend the christmas hedgehog bubble bar from Lush, it's fab! Also a good nude nail varnish is one of my A/W essentials!
