Favourites of the moment

I thought I’d let you all in to a few of the things that I am loving right now

Sigma brushes
(apologies-I had only just used them before I took the pic)

For my birthday back in May, my boyfriend bought me the ‘professional brushes complete kit’ and I love them! I had a few MAC brushes but I’ve always been quite reluctant to spend £30 on a brush so I thought this would be a good compromise! I’ve read so many good reviews on the sigma brushes and I can definitely back them up J.

Laura Mercier: Under eye perfector (mauve/rose) & Secret concealer (#2)

I posted about both these products when I first got them and I do love the combination of them both! The only thing that’s a bit hmmm about the concealer is that it’s very very creamy which means that I need to use a powder to set it, but hey ho-it’s something I can live with (for info, I use the ELF HD powder).

MAC Femme-Fi eyeshadow

I love this eyeshadow-I think it’s just such a pretty neutral colour that goes with everything! I think I’m right in saying that this was limited edition in the Neo Sci Fi collection in 2008 – I managed to pick mine up at my local CCO!

YSL Elle eau de toilette

I cam across this perfume in an old bag that I haven’t used in AGES! I can’t believe that I ever forgot that I had it-it’s such a pretty scent! I’ve used this everyday for the last week and have had so many people ask what I’m wearing. I’m rubbish with smells but...I would say it has a light floral smell with a musky hint (hehe that was a rubbish description-sorry guys)!

Tangle Teezer

When I have my hair coloured, all I have is bleach which leave my hair extremely knotty when it’s wet = lots of wincing when trying to brush my hair. So after reading about the Tangle Teezer on Holly’s blog I headed straight out to get one and boy do I love it! I have entirely tangle free hair when brushing-I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has lots of tangles in their hair!

After sun (aloe vera gel)

The weather has been lovely all over the country for the past few weeks which has resulted in some burning skin for moi. Unfortunately, I have skin that is prone to burning before it tans-but that means that I was in need of some after sun last weekend! I have always been a fan of the Banna Boat aloe vera gel, but whilst perusing the isles of my local home bargains (oh how I love that store) I saw this product, which looked just like the banana boat product at the fraction of the price! 

What products are you loving right now?

  1. I need to try the tangle teaser!! x

  2. They are amazing-I was really shocked at how good they actually are! Deffo recommend them :-) XX

  3. Another vote for the Tangle Teezer - I so badly want one but for some reason am reluctant to part with £10 for a brush! I should just do it! xxx

  4. I'd definitely recommend it Lucy-I was a bit uneasy about spending £10 on a brush but I use it every single day so it's worth it! My hairdresser had a palm one with a handle and she said it only cost about £4 but I can't find one anywhere (possibly worth a look in Sally's or somewhere)x x x

  5. Still need to try the Tangle Teezer!

  6. Another vote for the Tangle Teezer - I so badly want one but for some reason am reluctant to part with £10 for a brush! I should just do it! xxx
