Hello lovelies, first of all apologies for not posting for a while. I read all of your comments though and can’t wait to check out all these lovely blogs! I have been busy at uni over the last week with a horrible assignment that I finally have finished. My parents have also just returned from a Caribbean cruise too so I’ve been catching up with them too. They brought me the most amazing volcano face mask/ cleanser back which I am currently raving about, I’ll hopefully do a post about this soon. Today’s post is all about my favourite things at the moment, which I high recommend to anyone.
Tangle Teezer by Shaun P
With trying to grow my hair at the moment I have skipped my 6-8 week regular trim and lasted for 12 weeks this time. This has meant my hair has been a bit hard to tame. So I bought this brush from ebay after hearing so much about it. It was featured on Dragon’s Den and they turned it down and I bet they’re kicking themselves now. You can use it on wet hair or dry and it goes through my hair without even a slight tug or pull. I use it to brush conditioner through my hair too and it does no damage and leaves my hair so soft. I don’t know what I would do without this brush now and if you haven’t got one get to ebay/amazon or boots and get one! I think mine was around £8.
Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara
I’m loving this mascara at the moment. I got this for my birthday so I’m not sure how much it is but it is from the Soap and Glory Makeup range sold at boots. The brush is so big on this and coats my lashes without clumping in like 3 swoops. It also gives great volume without my lashes looking too clumpy and stuck together, which can be a problem with some mascaras. I really do recommend this mascara as I have tried so many. Because of the size of the brush it also lifts my lashes really well making them curl nice and high.
Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer
Now that my skin is over it’s dry spell I can actually wear concealer and foundation without it flaking off. So I am loving using this concealer to cover my dark circles and imperfections. For some reason I only ever get spots in between my eyebrows, which is really annoying and this covers any imperfections perfectly. It’s a good colour for me (medium) as concealers are usually too lights or pink toned, but this is a yellow tone which suits my skin. It is also easy to apply with a sponge like applicator that goes on nice and doesn’t look cakey. It also lasts for ages and is so cheap. I got this on the 3 for 2 offer at boots so I think it was free but it’s very cheap to buy.
Body Shop Born Lippy: Watermelon
My friends once bought me one of these when I was around 14 and I loved it so much, then I forgot about it until recently. It is a little sticky but smells beautiful and goes on my lips a lovely nude pink colour, leaving them so soft and smelling nice. The body shop also sells them in other colours/ flavours for around £2 which is an absolute bargain for these little beauties. They’re lovely to use in the day to give a nice bit of colour and to hydrate your lips. The packaging is also cute and they are lovely to use on holiday, I will definitely be taking this with me.
Hoola by Benefit
I bought this after buying a horrible bronzer with shimmer in which made my face look really mucky. It is around £23 which is quite expensive although I can see this is already going to last me for ages. It is a lovely buildable bronze colour without shimmer! I really dislike the shimmery bronzers they don’t contour properly and just make my face look like I’ve had a bad spray tan. I have been using this everyday and it is still pretty much full. I love the packaging as it is unusual for a bronzer and comes with a little blue brush which is good to contour your cheeks with as it is a straight brush. So I’m really loving this and would definitely recommend to any bronzer lovers like me!
