Beauty Favourites

It seems like a minute since I did a beauty post so I thought the best way to bring it back was to share some of my favourite beauty items at the moment.

I know everyone was raving about this last year and I am a bit slow but I had so many concealers I just couldn't warrant buying another.  Anyway, I finally cracked and can see what all the fuss is about.  It's such a lovely consistancy which is something I always look for in a concealer.  The colour match is great too.  I have light neutral and it's a great comparison for my Mac prolong wear concealer in NW20 which is my all time fave.

I like to think I'm not too late to the party on this one.  I have to admit ABH is my current favourite brand and I have quite a few products from her now.  I'm always a bit dubious about buying products from people that firstly specialise in one thing.  With Anastasia it was always the brows but these glow kits are gorgeous.  They can create a subtle highlight or a #HighlightOnFleek highlight with some fix+.

Don't worry, I haven't just discovered these but I have a few in my collection now and my recent purchase was the colour Copenhagen which is a beautiful deep plum colour.  What I love most about these lip products, however, is the formula.  So creamy and buttery, just as the name suggests.  I can't wait to buy some more when I visit the US in September as they seem to rip us off a bit in the UK.

There's been so much hype over BareMinerals lately and they totally deserve it.  I feel like they never got the attention they needed before because they're products are so good for the skin unlike a lot of brands that throw in a load of chemicals, BareMinerals markets themselves as being skin friendly with no nasty ingrediants.  I picked up the BB cream as I wanted something light for summer.  It has an SPF30 in it, keeps you oil free but not too matte for my dry skin and has a great buildable coverage.

This has been a cult product forever but I was never too fussed about it.  Then I hit pan on my trusty Urban Decay Deslick powder (review here) and wanted to try something new.  As I have dry skin I don't like anything too powdery that's going to sit in my fine lines (yep, I have those!) or that is going to dry me out too much.  I wanted something that made my skin glow but kept me from getting oily (jeez, I'm high maintenance).  However, this little compact does just that.  I have mine in medium.

What beauty products are you currently loving?
