Since starting my blog, I’ve done a monthly favourites post so I thought, just because it’s Blogmas doesn’t mean I have to miss this post out. It might even give you some ideas for presents for people or a treat for yourself.
Barry M Matte // Lipstick // Shade 179 // £4.99
OK, I’m gonna put my hands up and confess that I have not bought anything from Barry M in about 8 years because it reminds me of the gold glitter eyeliner I wore in high school and I mean, I just cannot get over how horrendous that trend was. I bit the bullet in Superdrug one day and tried a couple of their products. This is hands down my most used lipstick. I bought this at the beginning of November and I’ve hardly left the house without it on. The pigmentation of this lipstick is incredible. It applies really well! When I wear matte lipstick, my lips dry out so easily and it frustrates me so much as I love a matte lip. This is one of the only matte lipsticks which I don’t have the dry lip problem with!
Palmers // Cocoa Butter // Hand Cream // £2.10
Okay, so the weather has changed so much in this past month and it is so so bitterly cold. This is when my skin needs some extra TLC. I absolutely love this hand cream, you just need the smallest of blobs and the smell is AMAZING. This hand cream is like most of Palmer’s products and is quite thick so it well and truly lasts!
Seventeen // Matte Lipstick // Shade ‘Rioja your world’ // £4.49
I absolutely LOVE this lipstick. I have never used one of Seventeen’s lipsticks before so wasn’t sure what to expect. Well, I absolutely love it! The shade ‘Rioja your world’ is so bold and it’s honestly not like me to wear such a bold lip but I cannot get enough of it! It applies so easily for a matte lipstick (sometimes I feel like matte lips need forced to glide along your lips, but not this one.) The colour is so well pigmented and although it has to be applied a couple of times a day, it is so worth it!
Barry M // Flawless Colour Corrector // Primer // £5.99
I have never been able to find a primer I love as much as the primer from Smashbox. But since I’m trying to not spend as much money, I refused to spend £26 on a primer. So, whilst browsing the Barry M shelves, their primers caught my eye. They have a primer for pretty much every type of skin which I was so impressed by. I went for the green one which reduces redness and blemishes. I honestly think I have found my new primer until I can afford to treat myself to Smashbox. It applies so well and my skin feels so smooth.
Lancome // La Vie est Belle // Body Cream // £50
Okay, this body cream is absolute beautiful. I use it in the mornings and I can still smell the perfume on me by lunch time. The cream is a beaut pink colour and is so fresh. My skin is so soft once I’ve used this cream and I love it!
Max Factor // Bronzing Powder // Golden // £6.99
I honestly swear by this bronzer. I’ve been using this stuff for over a year now and recently bought a new one and it reminded me how much I love it. It’s so well pigmented that you need the smallest amount on your brush for an everyday look. And obviously that little bit more if you’re going on a night out or an event or something. I think the packaging makes it look more expensive than it is which is great for a high street product. It is honestly fantastic. I am so loyal to this bronzer and it would take a lot for me to change.
