I haven’t done a current beauty favourites for a while so I thought I’d update you on what I’ve been using over the past couple of months. As I branch out into the extremely saturated world that is the beauty market, I’m learning more and more about the type of products that suit my skin, what I like in products and what I don’t like.
The below selection of product if what I’ve seen myself reaching for the most and I’m happy to see a small selection of skincare products featuring – YES MY SKINCARE REGIME IS GETTING THERE!
L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask in Charcoal – RRP £7.99
I recently featured this on my blog and it is a mask that I’ve loved using over the past month or so. It’s a luxurious, thick mask that’s main component (charcoal), is great for drawing out any impurities and oiliness on the skin. I definitely want to try out some more of the range but let me know if you’ve tried out any for yourself. Highly recommend!
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer – RRP £24.00
This has been my favourite concealer so far and I think is on par with the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer. This one has a lot of coverage and it adds a subtle glow but not too much that it’s blinding or looks odd.
Maybelline Lash Sensation Mascara – RRP £8.99
This was a ‘blogger made me buy it‘ purchase after seeing it appear on so many beauty blogger’s sites. I love the size and shape of the brush and the pay off on my lashes is stunning. I think the only issue with this mascara is that it does catch a lot of the product as you pull it from tube. Therefore, I have to scrap the excess onto the side to avoid a clumpy mess on my lashes.
Eco Tools Duo Sponges – RRP £9.99
I am OBSESSED with these Eco Tool sponges. The sizes are perfect for applying both foundation, concealer and setting powder. They are slightly more absorbent than the Real Technique’s Beauty Blender but I prefer these because they’re softer and it doesn’t feel as though you’re battering your face so much.
The Ordinary Serum Foundation – RRP £5.70
I finally got round to ordering both the serum and full coverage foundation from The Ordinary brand after hearing so many beauty bloggers and bloggers in general, raving about the formula of these products. After reviewing them on my blog and trying them out, I really love the serum compared to the full coverage. The serum is lighter and less cakey than the full coverage which was great for me to use over Summer. I think I may find myself using the full coverage more over the colder periods but so far so good!
BareMinerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion – RRP £34.00 (for full size)
I got this sample from my selection of products by LoveMeBeauty, a beauty subscription service that’s fantastic by the way. They normally have a selection of high-end products to choose from and I picked out this vital power infusion serum that I’ve more or less gone through in the space of a few weeks. This is a powerful blend of ingredients, that’s meant to give your skin more radiance and renews the skin. I love the formula and feel of this on my skin as it’s quite thin and doesn’t feel too tacky or heavy. I don’t know whether I’d buy a full version but I’ve certainly enjoyed using it.
Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturiser Tint – RRP £59.00 (for full size)
When I first tried this product out – I was shooketh. I’d never tried a tinted moisturiser before so I went crazy for this product. It’s a rich texture with small beads in that once rubbed into the skin, provide you with a burst of warm colour, giving your skin a bronzed glow. I also got this from LoveMeBeauty and the size of this is incredibly generous seeing as this was 30ml and the full size is only 59ml. I’d definitely buy this again but it’s so pricey so if anyone knows of a dupe version of this, let me know!
And that’s my current beauty favourites from the past couple of months. Let me know what you’ve been loving in the comments below.
