So after a long while of being a very average blogger I am easing back into it with a very simple Current Favourites including some very fun new bits, lets have a look
Nars has been a staple brand in my collection for years, but something I have always loved are their basic products, I’m talking bases. Firstly the Radiant Creamy Concealer is a product that has gotten a whole lot of hype recently and that is because it is just great, is it a miracle worker, no, is it going to make you look bright, awake and and a whole lot more put together with those early mornings. I use the shade Vanilla, which for me is just brightening enough but also a great shade for larger areas of my face.
Secondly we have the Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Primer, hands down the best Eyeshadow Primer I have used to date. It adds a small amount tack to the lid to grip to the shadows but most importantly keeps everything in place all day long, literally! You need this.
While I do love dabbling with skin care and finding the best of the best sometimes you just need to go back to an old favourite, for me that is the Antipodes Avocado Pear Night Cream. To me this cream is super hydrating, rich and yet not heavy or uncomfortable feeling. The scent while strong is calming and relaxing. When my skin is in trouble this is what I need.
Glam Glow Super Mud, need I say more…OK I will but I don’t need to. If you have Oily, Acne Prone or Blackhead Prone skin (or all 3) you need this. This wonder mask has changed my life. While I enjoyed the Youth Mud, it is kid of an average product that other things can compare too, with Super Mud there is nothing else like it on the market. If you need to get your skin under control give this a shot, you wont regret it.
If you haven’t heard about the Melted Lipsticks yet you must be living under a rock. They are extremely long wearing, highly pigmented long wearing lipsticks. I have tried most of the colours but by far ‘Candy’ Is the stand out for me. If you are a brights girl, give this a whirl, if not try some of the other shades, they are just as fab.
Bareminerals is a brand known almost solely for their base products, but something you may not know is they make killer eyeshadows, my favourite of all is this little Quad ‘The Happy Place’. I will admit the Mattes are a little so so but the shimmers and the colours of the shimmers are outstanding. The peachy shade in this Quad is one of my all time favourite shadows.
Back to the bases, the Concealer in ‘Well Rested’ is another outstanding product, before giving this a shot I honestly thought I would see no results, especially being so pale, I was so wrong. I know feel out of place if I don’t use ‘Well Rested’ on a daily basis.
Hourglass Veil Primer, another cult product on the market in recent times, and another one I am totally in on. I have never used a primer that has worked like this for me. I have incredibly oily skin and lets be real, no make up is ever going to last 24 hours on me, but if I want it to last 12-14 hours this is a necessary step for me. I know it’s pricey but give it a shot!
Fragrance Love Alert: I have not fallen in love with a Fragrance in a long time, but this killer, sultry, sexy, strong scent has got me hook, line and sinker. This is not a scent for everyone, it is very intense, but if you are a D&G The One, or Tom Ford Black Orchid girl, get your hands on this baby.
Finally we have the one limited addition item on this list (I’m sorry). The Hourglass Ambient Blush Wardrobe. While this was only available of Christmas two of the shades are permanent and I know a whole lot of you got your hands on this little beauty so I wanted to share the love. My favourite is the middle shade, ‘Incandescent Electra’ It is such a brightening, illuminating and warming shade it just makes you look so healthy.
I know this was a long one but I wanted to give you a mini run down on some fun things of the moment!
