As a beauty blogger, I feel like we are often asked about our holy grail, favourite products.  So I thought I would share my very favourite products with you, most of which have never featured on my blog before but are well worth a mention!
Benefit's Hoola Bronzer has been a staple in my makeup collection since I got it as a present a few years ago.  I genuinely don't think it has left my makeup bag since then!  No other bronzer I've tried has the same natural bronze colour which also works amazingly well as a contour shade as it doesn't have a warm undertone and it's matte too.  I've even used this as an eyeshadow!  Yep, I don't think I could live without this bronzer!

The NARS Sheer Glow Foundation is a more recent addition to my collection having only started using this at the start of the year.  I wont babble on about this for too long because you've probably already heard it all but basically; it's dewy, but not shiny - medium coverage but buildable - I love it - packaging could definitely be improved.

L'Oreal's Superliner Perfect Slim was one of my firm favourites last year and I wore it almost everyday!  Since then I've gone off eyeliner, but if I ever fancy a winged liner look this is what I will use!  It's very user friendly as it has a sharp felt tip aswell as being very black and longlasting!

A slightly strange one here but the Nivea Hydrocare Lip Balm is amazing! I've tried my fair share of lip balms over the years and this one is the best!  It has a lovely subtle scent, SPF 15, and is very hydrating but what wins me over is the perfect balmy texture - it's not matte but not glossy either, meaning it applies smoothly to the lips and sits perfectly under lipsticks!  And the best bit?  It's only £1.55.

And finally, if you haven't tried the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer you've probably heard loads about it!  So I will keep this one short and sweet; it packs amazing high coverage with easy application, long lasting superpowers and all for a mere £4.19!  This concealer can do no wrong and I couldn't be without it!

  1. YES I have heard SO much about the Collection concealer and am so bummed that I can't get my hands on it from the US. Every time I read about it in a post a little bit of me dies knowing I'm missing out on something amazing, LOL. I wonder if they sell it elsewhere in EU? I am from the Netherlands and go back to visit my family regularly, so I'd hunt it down if I knew it was sold there.

    I've also heard really great things about NARS Sheer Glow. I adore my NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and have been on the fence about buying a foundation from them. I love their formulas and have always been able to find a shade light enough and yellow enough for my skin tone. Sheer Glow looks most appealing because I love a dewy finish and a medium coverage.

    Great picks and thanks for sharing!! MUCH LOVE!

    1. Thank you so much for such a lovely comment! The Collection concealer is amazing and definitely worth picking up if you can get your hands on it! It should be more widely available, its that amazing! Although I've heard the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is very similar, just more expensive.
      I can't get enough of NARS Sheer Glow either, another one worth adding to your collection if you can! I've been dying to try the NARS tinted moisturiser though, especially for the summer because Sheer Glow can get a bit heavy. NARS always have so many shades and I don't think they get enough praise for it!

      Thank you so much for reading!
