__

This is a very luxurious makeup primer with gold flecks! I've bought this after seeing so many people raving about it and I desperately needed a nice primer for my wedding day. The consistency is gel-like, absorbs quickly and  has a cooling effect on the skin, this smoothes fine lines and tightens the skin. 
CHANEL MADEMOISELLE ROUGE COCO LIPSTICKlink
I've had this lipstick on my wishlist for a long time and I finally got it. The colour is right up my street, a beautiful rose, nude pink colour. It goes on smoothly and makes my lips feel moisturised and soft.
BENEFIT KA-BROWlink
I don't usually like gel eyebrow products but this is a great product! It's really easy to use, fills in the sparse spots while looking very natural and it's long wearing! 
CLINIQUE CHUBBY STICK EYESHADOW 'AMPLE AMBER'link
I really love eyeshadow sticks, they're easy and quick to put on, perfect for when you're in a hurry in the morning.  This gives the right amount of coverage, nothing dramatic but still some colour on the eye. This shade is such a beautiful colour, a bronze pink; I totally fell in love with it!
GIVENCHY 'ROSE TAFFETAS' NAIL POLISH  | link
This colour is a perfect staple for autumn/winter. the nail polish is a gorgeous and pigmented dusty rose colour; the brush is thick enough to make the application process easier. 
MARC JACOBS 'LE CHARM' HI-SHINE NAIL POLISH  | link
Sephora has these on sale at the moment and I really fell for this colour, a gorgeous shimmery rose gold shade. Also the packaging is super cute. I haven't seen many good reviews about these though. let's hope isn't too bad.

These are my favourite shades of the moment, what are yours?

DIOR ADDICT MILKY TINT 'MILKY PLUM'
I really like the colour and texture of this Dior lip tint and the lovely plumy colour is perfection. It's not sticky and leaves the lips looking glossy and plump.
DIOR LIP MAXIMIZER | link  
This is a lip plumper/lip gloss. Don't expect a miracle but a subtle bit of fullness. It tingles and has a minty scent but it really plumps your lips and makes my lips feel smooth and fuller. 
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILL LIQUID LIPSTICK 'DUSTY ROSE' link 
This is so comfortable on the lips, so lightweight and this shade is such a beautiful dusty rose colour. It reminds me a lot the Sephora lip stain in Marvelous Mauve which I love so much too, they're really similar.
YSL GLOSS VOLUPTE 'NUDE CARAT' | link 
This is such a lovely lip gloss. The texture is great and doesn't feel sticky like other glosses. The shade 20 Nude Carat is a subtle and wearable nude colour with golden shimmer, perfect for daily looks.
GUERLAIN LA PETITE ROBE 'BEIGE LINGERIE' | link 
I love sheer, subtle lipsticks and this is right up my street. It feels like a balm and has a beautiful sheen to it. It's hydrating and so comfortable to wear. It feels very smooth and silky, giving a lovely shine to the lips. Beige Lingerie is just the perfect shade, it's a beautiful soft pink-nude colour. If you like sheer lipsticks in general, you'll love these!

2016 MAKEUP FAVOURITES

Huge massive favourites post with a roundup of my favourites from the year,
 some of them are new, some of them have been around for a long time but they're all really amazing beauty products.
Here we go!

2016 makeup favourites, becca, benefit, sephora, dior, sleek, highlighters
BENEFIT ROCKATEUR BLUSH  link 
I didn't get this when it first came out somehow it didn't catch my attention, I  always thought it would be too pink but honestly it looks so natural. It gives a natural warm pink flush and a lovely warm and healthy glow. 
DIOR LIP MAXIMIZER link  
A late entry this year. This is a lip plumper/lip gloss. Don't expect a miracle though but a subtle bit of fullness. It tingles and has a minty scent but it really plumps your lips and makes my lips feel smooth and fuller. 

CHANEL ROUGE COCO SHINE 'BOY' LIPSTICK link  An absolute favourite for me this year was this lipstick from Chanel. It's pretty much the lipstick everyone should own. It's a sheer pinky nude colour with some flecks of golden micro-glitter. It’s flattering on everyone, it's easy to wear, and it goes with any makeup look.
BENEFIT HOOLA BRONZER  | link  
A new discovery from this year was Hoola bronzer. I can see why this is Benefit's most iconic product. It's a good all-rounder and the perfect balance of bronze, not too orange or too muddy. It's matte but gives a natural sun kissed look. 
SLEEK 'SOLSTICE' HIGHLIGHTER PALETTE | link
A great discovery this year was this palette. Beautiful colours and amazing pigmentation. It has a combination of different textures, all super pigmented and smooth. They can be used as eye-shadows as well.

It's so versatile, I use it under my foundation and it gives the most gorgeous dewy glow, it definitely brightens up dull skin beautifully. It also provides hydration and it lasts all day long.  

SEPHORA CREAM LIP STAIN 'MARVELOUS MAUVE'  | link
These Sephora liquid lipsticks are seriously amazing, They're highly pigmented and long lasting. They're super confortable to wear. feel great and lighweight on the lips. I love this shade so much!
RMS LIVING LUMINIZER & MASTER MIXER link
These are made with natural and lovely ingredients like coconut oil which is something amazing. They give a subtle but beautiful highlight on the cheekbones, a lovely glow that it looks like coming from within.The skin looks so beautiful and healthy after this.

MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL MASCARA link 
Everything about this mascara is great! It goes on easily and it has an immediate impact on the look of the lashes. The curved brush really helps to cover each individual lash. The result: the lashes look fuller and volumised.

BECCA SHIMMERING POWDERS | link 
Becca highlighters are just amazing! The quality is amazing, they're pigmented and the glow and shimmer in these are stunning, they give the most amazing sheen.
GIORGIO ARMANI LUMINOUS SILK  | link 
This foundation lives up to the hype!  It's super lightweight but still manages to provide amazing coverage. It's also super long lasting, lasts all day and it gives a glowy, natural finish. 
URBAN DECAY RIFF SINGLE EYESHADOW link
This has been myfavourite eyeshadow this year. This is a warm orangey-brown colour with a hint of gold sparkle that looks great on the crease and alone all over the lid. It's so velvety soft and pigmented!
RIMMEL MATCH PERFECTION CONCEALER | link
This stuff is amazing! I love the soft brush application. It's creamy and thick enough to cover the dark circles. It does a brilliant job concealing and brightening the under eye area.  It's my go-to for the under-eye area.

2016 BEAUTY FAVOURITES
SKIN, BODY & TOOLS
__

First of all, Happy New Year everyone! I hope that you all have an amazing Christmas! 2016 has literally flown by!
Anyway here's the bits I've been adoring this year.
Beauty products that I absolutely enjoyed using in 2016 and I definitely will keep using during this 2017!




2016 beauty favourites, skincare, bodycare, toolsGARNIER OIL-INFUSED CLEANSING WATER link  
This stuff is amazing! It takes off all my makeup so well even the waterproof eye makeup. Despite of being oil-based it doesn't feel greasy on the skin, it leaves the skin feeling very moisturized, soft and clean.
KIEHL'S ULTRA FACIAL CLEANSER link 
I love how extremely gentle this is on my skin; it cleans well without leaving my skin feeling tight or dry afterwards. It also helps my face looking clear and spot free. The texture is really lovely, it has a very thick gel-like texture and you only need the tiniest amount each time, a little goes a long way. A gentle and effective cleanser.
KIEHL'S MIDNIGHT RECOVERY OIL | link
I love the way my skin is looks in the morning after using this! I've been using this regularly and I've noticed my skin is smoother, brighter and clearer. It really helps my sensitive, combination, spot prone skin. I love it because it's not greasy at all!
AVENE TRIACNEAL EXPERT EMULSION link
I'm obsessed with this cream/serum. It's an evening treatment that targets blemishes, marks and the first signs of ageing. I suffer from very sensitive skin and breakouts and this is perfect!  It's perfect for adult, acne-prone skin. I couldn't recommend this enough!
PIXI GLOW TONIC | link
This toner with glycolic acid has made my skin much more smoother and clearer. I have acne prone skin and this does not make my skin break out. It's really gentle and leaves the skin feeling clean and refreshed and my complexion looks brighter. Absolutely worth the hype.
KIKO PURE CLEAN SCRUB & PEEL WIPES | link
These are 2 in 1 wipes, the textured side exfoliates the skin and the other provides comfort and freshness.They do a really good job exfoliating, it slightly removes dead skin, the skin feels soft and smooth afterwards.

2016 beauty favourites, skincare, bodycare, toolsCHANEL COCO MADEMOISELLE FRESH MOISTURE MIST |link
This is the body spray, a lovely fresh mist with moisturising properties. The scent is light and fresh and leaves the skin delightfully scented and soft.
MORPHE R36 BRUSH link 
I'm so in love with this brush, it's great for applying highlighter. It's soft, precise and the tapered shape makes it perfect for highlighter.
BEAUTY BLENDER MAKEUP SPONGE  link
2016 was the year I discovered the beauty blender and now I'm hooked! It's the best makeup tool for applying liquid foundation, it really gives a beautiful, flawless finish. This is a good investment. 
ARDELL DEMI WISPIES EYE LASHES link
These are so beautiful and natural. I like having a pair at home for special occasions.
KEVIN AUCOIN EYE LASH CURLER | link
These eyelash curlers curl the lashes gently and opens up the eyes so you instantly look more awake and more beautiful. They're really make the difference!
WET BRUSH  link
After having a tangle teaser for years I decided to give the Wet brush a go and OMG! it's amazing, I do prefer it over the tangle teaser. Brushing my tangles out are easy and don't hurt!
