Beauty Products I've Been Reaching For Lately


I love knowing what people reach for on a daily basis, its how you know someone trusts a product, so it must be good right?!

Lets start with base. I've been using this foundation religiously for about two months now, and I don't know why I haven't spoken about it more. Its the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. I was so late to the party with this, but after trialling a few drugstore foundations, this was next on my list. I love everything about this foundation, even the scent. Its a medium coverage foundation, and gives such a glowy look to the skin. I have combination/oily skin and this actually seems to work quite well, can't imagine using anything else! Another drugstore offering, being the Natural Collection Blush in Dusky Pink. I remember using Natural Collection when I was about 13, but actually, their blushes are really good. I love the colour of this one.

Another one for the face, and not surprising at all really, the Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette. I still absolutely adore this, and its literally the best £10 I've ever spent. I've been especially loving the purple shade since the sun has made an appearance recently. Super glowy cheeks! For the eyes, I've been reading for my Models Own Colour Chrome Eyeshadow in Copper Lustre. I'm so obsessed with these cream eyeshadows, the pigment is insane and I don't know why more people aren't talking about them. Would highly recommend!


Finally, my bargain of the century, the Essence Lash Princess Mascara. This mascara is literally £3.30....THREE POUNDS AND THIRTY PENCE. Like ridiculously cheap for what it is. The packaging is gorgeous, and it really does work well to give your lashes the volume you're after. I'm so super impressed with this for the price, I'd definitely recommend giving this a go if you're on a budget or spending ban this month!


What have you been loving lately?

  7. I absolutely LOVE the sleek highlight palette, it's such amazing quality for the price (as is all Sleek makeup to be honest haha) - like you said, £10 well spent.

  9. I absolutely love that sleek highlighter kit! I'm also a massive fan of the Bourjois healthy mix foundation, I've loved it for years and I love the new formula. I definitely need to pick up some Essence mascaras, they're so affordable and awesome.

    1. Its such a good drugstore foundation, I'd love to try the concealer as well - the smell is quite fruity actually, so its much better than other foundations out there!

  15. I've hit pan on the two powder shades in the sleek highlighter palette, I very rarely buy drugstore make up but thats one product I'm SO glad I went for after the hype, I literally use it everyday for inner corner and brow bone glow! Definitely going to be a re-purchase :-)
