Beauty Favourites #8


It’s beauty favourites time! Today I’m gonna do a super quick round up of all of the makeup, haircare and bodycare I’ve been loving! Surprisingly, there’s no skincare as my complexion has been a bit of a nightmare right now and I’m seeing the dermatologist this week, so fingers crossed I get it sorted out! Anyway… On with the products!

Starting with body, the Lush Yuzu and Cocoa Shower Cream has been such a firm favourite in my shower since I bought the little bottle in my last Lush haul. I’ve since went back and bought the biggest bottle they have, as the chocolate orange scent is positively addictive! It reminds me of an orange cream biscuit and is extremely comforting to use – go buy it!

The Sachajuan Ocean Mist has been in my collection for quite a while now, but only in the past two months have I come to truly appreciate how good it is. It’s a lightweight salt spray and gives my hair such amazing texture and volume without making it look crispy like other salt sprays can.

Onto makeup and the Guerlain Liquid Eyeliner was one I didn’t quite understand the hype of when I first bought it. But, now I’ve been using it every day for a few months, I finally get why people adore it. Yes, it may take a little bit longer to dry, but once it has, it ain’t going anywhere. It’s super black, the brush is precise, and it’s so long lasting!

I don’t actually powder my face half as much as I used to, but when I want my makeup to last all day, then I’ll use the BareMinerals Mineral Veil. It’s a finely milled, velvety feeling powder which lasts for hours and hours without making the skin look dry. I love how it still lets me retain some of the glow from my foundation too, as it’s not a really matte powder.

I do love Bobbi Brown and peachy hues have been my favourite to wear recently, so it’s no surprise that the Bobbi Brown Blush in Nude Peach has been one of my most worn this month. It gives skin such a healthy flush to it and can be built up to a strong colour if needed – perfect for summer!

Finally, a lip product I’ve been loving is the Dr PawPaw Ultimate Red Balm. Not only is it a bargain, but it’s a fantastic multi-use balm which covers everything from chapped lips to irritated skin to sun burn. While I’d stuck to the colourless one for the later, the red tint in this one makes for a pretty (and soothing) lip balm!
