Recent Favourites

I haven't done a favourites post for quite a while so I thought I'd share with you all what I've been loving recently! The last few months have been CRAZY busy so I haven't discovered a great deal of new things, but there's a small selection of beauties that I just can't live without at the minute.

After having my wedding makeup done by my lovely friend Eve, I have been totally obsessed with brows. I've always spent ages preening mine to perfection everyday anyway with various different tools, but after she used the Anastasia Dip Brow on me, my brows were on fleek and my life was changed. Since I was too god damn impatient to wait the delivery time for ABH, I went straight out and bought the Benefit Ka-Brow alternative (£18.50) and I probably love it more! Now my brows are my ultimate pride and joy and it's my favourite part of my makeup routine. I can't recommend Ka-Brow enough to everyone who will listen and I daresay I love it more than Dip Brow...

Next on my love list is the L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion foundation (£14.99). I put off buying this for ages because to be looks weird. I always shy away from hyped products too until I know if they're really worth the purchase but I finally took the plunge and bought this and I won't be looking back! I'm used to more full coverage foundations but to use something lighter is actually a godsend. It never looks like I'm actually wearing anything which I love but my skin looks flawless. The only downside to this is that after using it for a month, the product inside is nearly all gone, which for a relatively expensive foundation compared to other high street offerings is a little bit disappointing. I'll still be repurchasing though and now I'm intrigued to try the Lancome version too!

I've rarely been without Barry M's Pink Lemonade Gelly nail polish lately (and that doesn't seem likely to change anytime soon! It's a gorgeous nude pink - but not too baby pink - and it's the perfect colour to throw on when you're in a hurry but still want to look fabulous.

If you read my last post all about my handy heroes from Lush (geddit?!), you'll know how bloody obsessed I am with the Helping Hands hand cream (£7.95) I won't witter on about it but basically it's heaven in a tub and it's my number one essential this autumn when it comes to skincare. If you suffer with dry hands, you need this in your life!

Fragrance wise, I have been absolutely dousing myself in Viktor & Rolf's Bonbon Couture* (from £57). Again, I wrote a cheeky lil' post about it here which gives you the lowdown but I couldn't help but feature it again. I love how sweet but sexy it is and it seems like the perfect scent for the colder months as it's so warming and comforting!

I discovered Nip & Fab skincare about a million years after everyone else, but I've been using barely any other brands on my face these last couple of months. My favourite of them all? The Glycolic Fix Serum (£14.95). I have such rank visible pores but since I've been using this little badboy, they're barely noticeable and my skin feels so much smoother and tighter. My makeup also sits better on my face and doesn't dissolve into nothingness after an hour. WINNER!

Beauty products aside, I've been spending lots of cosy nights on the sofa getting my bookworm on and my favourite read so far is You're The One That I Want by Giovanna Fletcher. It's a cute love story with a bit of a twist and I'm really enjoying it (I'm only halfway through though, so no spoilers please gals!). I'm always on the hunt for book recommendations though, so please pop some in the comments if you think I'd like them!

  1. Barry M's Pink Lemonade looks gorgeous! We finally got a small range of Barry M in Australia so I'll have to see if I can find that one.
