Current Makeup Favourites

It’s been a while since I’ve brought you some of my latest favourite products. Some of these are brand new to me and some have been knocking around in my stash to be discovered again.The one benefit of moving recently was I found many products I had completely forgotten about!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Light – I know lots of Double Wear devotees out there but it’s one that’s just a tiny but too heavy for me but I love the light version. I had this foundation years ago but never replaced it. I usually wear Revlon Colorstay but I find lately probably with stress it’s been a bit drying on my skin. So I spontaneously bought this one again and I’ve been loving it. It’s a medium coverage with not too matte a finish and just lasts really well on my skin without drying it out. I wear the lightest shade 1.0 so this probably wouldn’t work for super pale ladies.

No7 Pop & Glow Cream Blush and Mango Sorbet – I love a coral toned blush and this cream version from No7 is just perfection for spring with its bright coral colour. What I really like about this one is how long it lasts. I’ve worn this to work for the last few weeks and I definitely see evidence of the blush at the end of the day. This isn’t usually the case for me as I’ve such dry skin. The quality of this has also made me curious to try their contour and highlight versions of these.


Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer – Ok funny one here, I’m not overly fussed about the concealers in this, they’re fine but are a bit too creamy and the tones are slightly off for my skin . What I really love in this set is the concealer setting powder. The powder really reminds me of the Makeup Forever HD powder in terms of the blurred finish it leaves on your skin and it’s also the white colour. It really mattifies skin and blurs pores without feeling heavy. Soap & Glory have just brought out a translucent version of their Kick Ass pressed powder and I hope it’s the same as this one as it’s fab!

Beauty Blender - I sing Rhianna to myself when I think of this one ‘Where have you been all my liiiiiiiiiiiiiiife……..’ In case you missed my glowing review last week here, I absolutely frickin love my Beauty Blender. It’s just perfect for my dry skin and quite simply my foundation has never looked so good. I like it so much I had a dream the other night that I got loads more of these, clearly I need help!

So there you have a quick peek of some of my favourite products at the moment. Let me know if you’re a fan of any of these!
