Blogmas Day 3: Recent Beauty Favourites

So I was doing really well for day 1 and day 2 and then missed a post yesterday and Wednesday! So I am a 2 days behind but that means that 2 day there will be 2 posts, yay! As I was absent for so long I decided that rather than doing a November favourites I would just talk about the products I have been loving since September so here goes,

Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner
The winter months have really been affecting my skin and I have broken out big time! I have been having spots here there and everywhere and not much has helped, except this. Tea Tree works amazingly on my spots and this toner is perfect to help combat all the pesky buggers! I use this toner every morning and night and it really helps to clear up my skin. I tend to use this all year round, even when I don't have spots because it really helps maintain clear skin and I can really notice when I haven't used it! Body Shop have a 40% off voucher floating around at the moment so if you are interested in trying this I would recommend getting it now for cheap!

Sleek Blush in Suede
I think this might be one of the first blushers I ever bought and it is still going strong! ( I know I should probably chuck it away.) I would say that this a blush/bronzer hybrid because it is very much on the brown side but is so lovely. I had completely forgotten about this but recently rediscovered it and I am in love. I think this is the perfect thing to wear on your cheeks for a subtle pop of colour. I am not sure if Sleek even still do this colour but if they do I will link it below!

Soap and Glory One Heck Of A Blot
I have never really been much of a powder person but in recent months my skin has tended to be on the oilier side so I have had to invest in more powders. I have tried quite a few but this has to be my favourite. I know loads of people rave about this but it really is worth the hype. It keeps oil at bay all day whilst not caking up and leaving you looking like a hot mess, so massive thumbs up for this!

MAC All That Glitters
I am in love. I did a whole post about how much I love this so I will link that below so I don't repeat myself too much. Basically if you are going to buy one mac eye shadow I suggest that you get this one. It is just the most perfect colour and I think I wear this nearly every day. It is perfect for an all over colour for day to day but also looks fab with a dark colour blended into the crease. This is just the best!

Real Techniques Brow Brush
I love a good real technique brush and when it comes to their brushes this is one of my favourites. A lot of the brow brushes I have used before have been quite flimsy and therefore haven't applied the powder to my brows well enough. This however is not at all flimsy and applies the powder I use amazingly. I have shaked up my brow routine a little recently so stay tuned for a post all about my new favourite brow product.

Rimmel Wonder'Full Argan Oil Mascara
Mascara is a funny one for me. I have tried so many mascaras out but I have never found one that I am completely in love with. I picked this mascara up from Boots back in August with high hopes that I might finally find a holy grail mascara, now I wouldn't say this is holy grail but it is pretty close. This mascara is amazing at lengthening and separating your lashes without making them look like spider legs. This does have Argan Oil in which improves the quality of your lashes, I don't know if it has done that but I have noticed that a lot less lashes fall out then they use to! Overall this is a really solid mascara and I will definitely be repurchasing it. My tip for this is to make sure the lid is always on really tight because it works much better when the formula is nice and wet. Again I have written a whole post about this which I will link below!

That is it for my recent favs, I have deliberately not included any lip products in this post because I will be doing a whole post about my favourite winter lip colours so make sure to pop back for that tomorrow. Let me know what you have been loving recently because I am currently looking for more things to put on my Christmas wish list! Hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading,
