Current Holy Grails
Hey beauts, hope you're having a fantastic weekend. I'm chilling out and pampering with a hair and face mask (namely Lee Staffford Treatment for t
hat hair never grows past a certain length and Origins Drink Up Intensive mask) and thought I'd share with you some of the products I'm currently using that I really don't want to live without.
So here we have it.
Illamasqua Gleam - OMG best cream highlighter I've ever used. The texture is almost like a paste which feels so satisfying to work with. I love it. It really does what it says on the tin. You will be gleaming and your cheekbones will look immense.
Tom Ford Lipsticks - The beauty of these begins with the packaging. It's beautiful, weighty and just feels like pure luxury. There's an amazing colour range, they glide on, have staying power and I will be buying more. From left to right I have Scarlet Rouge, Nude Vanille, and Wild Ginger. All are perfect on my pale complexion.
DIOR Forever Foundation - I speak for all Dior face products in this paragraph, not just the foundation. From the face powders, through to the bronzers and foundations Dior gives you amazing coverage and also leaves you with an effortless, long lasting luminosity. This foundation is aptly named because I will use it Forever.
Lady Gaga Black Fluid - I tried this in a Glossybox a couple of months back and it just has something about it. I'm not one for celebrity scents or anything celebrity to be honest but this just does it for me. It's sweet but not overly so and I wear it every day. It makes me happy.
Origins High Potency Night - A - Mins - This is a renewal cream that smells like oranges. I LOVE the scent of it although it's not
for everyone. I use it every other night before bed and it really does rejuvenate the skin. When I've applied it my skin feels warm and just comfortable and cosy if you know what I mean. I wake up with glowing, soft skin the next day too. Absolute winner.
Topshop Glitter polishes - I don't think I've ever heard a bad word about Topshop nail products and I'm not surprised. They are gorgeous. I've heard people say the £6 price tag is a bit steep but I disagree. For me what's steep is Chanel charging around £16 for a polish that lasts about an hour before chipping. Topshop's £6 for quality long lasting, beautiful looking polish is fine by me. And what's more the glitter particles and plentiful and easy to apply onto the nail. These look great over metallic polishes and darker coloured polishes. From left to right I have Ice Crush and Panther.
Skinetica Anti Blemish - I received this in last month's Glossybox. My skin is pretty good on the whole but I'm prone to a couple of blemishes from time to time. I've been dabbing this on as soon as they appear and I would definitely say they heal in half the time after using this. It doesn't dry the skin out around the blemishes either. It is described on the the bottle as 'kind to skin' which is great if you ask me.
So there's a quick round up of some of my beauty staples right now.
Which products can't you live without at the mo?
