Current Favourites!

So I'm back off holiday and ready to post again. Sorry for the delay, I spent a week with my boyfriend after my five week holiday. But being away from home from such a long I realised that I have some products that I'm really enjoying at the moment...

Max Factor FaceFinity Foundation in Warm Almond (£11.99 here)
This foundation is amazing! Perfect for long days or when you're not feeling your best, this lasts all day and gives pretty high coverage. I wear this most days unless I'm only going to nipping out or having a chill day. 

Rimmel Match Perfection in True Ivory (£6.99 here)
If I'm not wearing the previous foundation this is what will be on my face. I've mentioned this foundation before as I really do love it, although the FaceFinity is now a rival for my affections. If I'm in a rush I use this foundation as there is no way to mess up application. It's also great for letting my skin breath if it's freaking out while still providing some coverage. I love how this feels on my skin, so light!

Body Shop Honey Bronzer in Light Matte (£13 here)
When I first got this bronzer I thought it was far too light for even my incredibly pale skin (four weeks in Australia, one week in Bali and I didnt tan despite being burnt to a crisp) however I didn't take this with me on holiday and boy, did I regret it! This bronzer gives me the perfect look for contouring and adding that bit of colour to my skin and is my new favourite. Wouldn't leave home without it again!

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Rose Gold (£4.99 here)
Another product I've mentioned before but I've been using this under all of my eyeshadows and it never budges. These days I place all my trust in this Colour Tattoo, even abandoning the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I love the colour of this, it really goes with any colour as its not too overpowering.

Bright Lips
I didn't take many lip colours with me on holiday, another decision I came to regret! I feel my face just doesn't look 'right' without a bright lip, be it pink, red, green... You get the idea! Here we have the Boujois Color Boost Lip Crayon in Red Sunshine and L'Oreal Spalsh Stain in Juliet (which comes out far more red than it looks in the tube) but there are many more I could of featured.

Almay Get Up and Grow Mascara
I bought this mascara in Australia after seeing it featured many times by the lovely Emily Noel and I have fallen in love. I normally go for mascaras with rubber bristles and this has more traditional fibre brush. Somehow this mascara manages to length, volumise and separate my lashes as well as hold a curl! I am however using it sparingly as it's not available in England.

Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser (£20 here)
This product is a miracle in a bottle for my skin. No matter how much I neglect my skincare routine and let my skin go crazy, this stuff always sorts it out. Just used a make up wipe at night? Forgot to chemically exfoliate? Skin just feeling a mess? This exfoliating cleanser has me. If I'm being good I only use this as a manual exfoliator a few times a week but more often than not I'm lazy; I don't do my night time skin routine and this little beauty saves me in the morning. As I have dry skin I have to exfoliate in some form once a day or make up just doesn't sit on my skin properly, but this won't be the case for all skin types. This is just my personal holy grail skin care product.

Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub (£8 here)
This product is kind of representing exfoliators in general as on holiday I took a small Scrub 'em and Leave 'em also by Soap and Glory. For the first week or so of my holiday I could not shave my legs, the hair just wouldn't come off. Gross, I know, but it's the truth and I couldn't figure out why. Then I realised, I haven't been exfoliating my legs. I loved the Scrub 'em and Leave 'em for it's moisterising properties and texture but I also adore the scrubbiness of Sugar Crush. I can't choose between them!

So that was a round up of my current favourites, along with some little life lessons I learnt on holiday. What have been your favourite products recently?
