Now I normally do monthly favourites, or at least try to! However, we are now in March and I am yet to write my January faves – so I thought that for the last few months I’ll just wrap into one blogpost and call it my ‘Winter’ favourites! I do promise that for the rest of the year I will try to do monthly favourites. Try.
Makeup Revolution Soph X Highlighter Palette
The products are super pigmented and build able, so you can go subtle or full glam! You can even use other shades as a gorgeous eye shadow, again using them dry for a subtle shimmer, or wet for an intense, dazzling look!
So, time for the pros and cons! PROS: Super pigmented, build-able, multi-functional, variety of colours, affordable, high street availability. CONS: Small amount of fall out! Overall, it’s an amazing quality palette and worth so much more than the price it is! You have so much choice, instead of just sticking to the one colour. There is so much I love about this palette – I can’t praise it enough!
Makeup Revolution Soph X Eye shadow Palette
The reason I keep going back to this palette is because the colours are so versatile and can be used for any event. I typically grab this palette when I’m getting ready for work, using mainly nudes and neutral shades and occasionally adding a shimmer. The colours are all really pigmented and last most of the day! They blend really easily and all compliment each other, meaning you can use every colour!
PROS: Lots of colours and blending options. CONS: Some shimmer shades have fallout. The 24 versatile shades give you everything you need to create your look no matter what time of year, whether you’re looking for light shimmers, warm browns, rich golds, rusty oranges, dark smokey shades or even a pop of colour- this palette is for everyone!
Sand & Sky Detoxify + Brighten Face Mask
Cleansing and detoxifying, Sand and Sky’s Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask refines pores and brightens the complexion. Drawing impurities and pollutants from the pores, leave for 10 minutes to regenerate skin cells, stimulate collagen and leave a healthy, radiant glow. It was a sad day when this little tester ran out, because the full size products runs up at £39.50! This mask honestly changes your life – the consistency is great, it dries really quickly and genuinely clears your skin within days!
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
The sponge is completely unique, featuring 3 distinct surfaces that give you 3 ways to apply liquid foundation. Optimize your beauty routine with this 3-in-1 multi- functional sponge. Rounded sides – blend large areas of the face with a repeated “dabbing” or “stippling” motion. Precision tip – covers blemishes and imperfections. Flat edge – for the contours around the eyes and nose. Its versatile design evenly blends makeup for a smooth, enhanced finish, use with your favourite foundation to help reduce the appearance of pores. This sponge is honestly a game changer and is a must have in your makeup bag!
Natural Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser
When I first tried the Liz Earle cleanser and polish, it was a game changer. I didn’t think I’d ever find a skincare product as good – until I found this. Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser is formulated with a unique energising complex and infused with Kiwi Fruit and Mulberry extracts to help revive skin’s radiance and even out skin tone. Enriched with nourishing Cocoa Butter, this rich and creamy formulation melts into the skin and cleanses away make-up and impurities, whilst also providing gentle exfoliation, leaving skin feeling renewed, soft and ultra clean.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution
A lightweight, pre-serum concentrate that combats blemishes and improves the overall condition of skin. After 4 weeks, skin looks and feels purified, clearer. smoother, healthier, clarified, mattified, soothed, with reduced redness and imperfections. I used a few drops each day as a priming serum, and it works as a perfect base for makeup.
