Recent Favs

Again I have had another long absence from the blogging world but without going into it too much life has gotten in the way over the last couple of months and I have been physically and emotionally all over the place. I am now permanently in Brighton (well into June) and feeling emotionally amazing so I thought this would be an appropriate time to get back into blogging because I have really missed it. So first post back lets talk about what I have been loving whilst I have been away,


           L'oreal Color Riche Julianne's Nude
I think this lipstick has been almost permanently on my lips day and night since mid January now. I have always been a nude lip fan, but apart from Plink by MAC,  I have struggled to find ones that suited my skin tone. My friend has Eva's nude and raves about  it so I decided to give the collection a go and fell in love with this one. It is the perfect combo of pink and brown to create the most amazing colour on my lips. I have been teaming this with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillowtalk to create my own version of the Kylie Jenner lip. 

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
The foundation version of this has always been a firm favourite but my relationship with this concealer hasn't always been so positive. I first had this  a couple of summers ago and for some reason really didn't get on with it but decided to give it another go during a Boots 3 for 2 deal and I'm glad I did. This concealer is perfect for covering those dark circles under your eyes and making it look like you haven't been up all night! It feels so light on your skin but provides the perfect amount of coverage to conceal and brighten. 

Charlotte Tilbury Eye Palette in Dolce Vita
So I featured this little beauty back in December in a birthday haul and talked about how excited I was to  use it and after nearly 3 months of using it I think I can definitely say this palette is an essential for all beauty junkies. All 4 colours are absoloutely stunning and blend out amazingly. The texture of these are like nothing I have felt before, like actual butter, they are such a pleasure to use. You can easily just sweep one of these colours over your eyes or use all 4 for a dramatic night look either way your eyes are guaranteed to look stunning! 

                                                                     Philosophy Hope In A Jar Night Cream
For Christmas I got a lovely little set of 4 Philosophy products (a brand I had never tried before) and have been using all of them over the last couple of months and this night cream has really stuck out for me. This winter has been a complete bitch to my skin and I am a massive walking dry patch! My eyelids have been particularly bad so I have been applying this to my whole face, but paying special attention to my eyelids every night over the last week or so and I can already see a massive difference! This cream is very thick and leaves your skin so beautiful and moisturised you feel like you have submerged in water all night (in a good way). I have already been checking out the full size of this because I think it is going to be a skincare essential!

So that was a little peak into what I have been enjoying recently. It literally feels so good to have written a post again but now I must head back to Dissertation work!! I will be back again over the weekend to talk about the Lipsticks I am loving for Valentine's day. Hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading,
