Current Beauty Favourites

Today I thought I'd share with you some of my current beauty favourites, some old, some new, a bit of this, a bit of that.

Loreal Caresse Lipstick in Fashionista Pink. I've been using this almost everyday lately, its a halfway house between a lipstick and a lip balm. I think this is one of the fairest shades in the range (I bought it at the supermarket and they had limited shades), and it's incredibly difficult to photograph it on the lips. None the less its a lovely product and I can't wait to get some more. If you've tried these I'd love to hear what are your favourite shades for next time I pop to Boots.

Urban Decay Naked 2. I FINALLY got my hands on this little beauty. I've wanted it since Day 1, a given really as my love for the original knows no bounds, however I've just not had the cash to splash. When my boyfriends Mum brought me this back as a surprise from Duty Free after her holidays I was absolutely over the moon. I wasn't expecting it either so it was a really lovely surprise. I will be doing a full review of this once I've had chance to use it more but the packaging is a definite improvement!

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer. I picked this up on a whim in the supermarket, I normally use the Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch concealer but thought I'd try this for a change. Its a lovely little concealer, great for under eye circles I find and it doesn't break the bank either. What more could you ask for?

Last but not least, an oldie but a goodie. With all of the warm weather the UK has been experiencing over the last couple of weeks, I whipped out my old faithful Mac Blonde MSF, and oh my did I forget how wonderful she is. I got this back in the good old days when it was released in the Blondes, Brunette and Redheads Collection (early 2009 I think). Those were the days when Mac Collections were actually covetable. Any how, I digress, I adore this product, not too much glitter, just the right about of highlight, the perfect pink flush for the cheeks, this suits my skin tone down to the ground and I've used it solidly for the last 2 weeks. I use the darker pink as blush for my cheeks, and use the lighter bit as highlight on my cheek bones and down my nose. A light hand is required as always with this kind of product, but the finished results are lovely. 

What are your current beauty favourites?



  1. That L'Oreal lippie looks fab. Lovely colour.
    And I have the Collection 2000 concealer, did the same and picked it up on a whim, and love it.

  2. Love the look of that lippie, don't think I could carry off such a bright pink myself though x

  3. I really want to try the l'Oréal caresse lipsticks they sound fab ! xx

  4. i have the loreal caresse lipstick in hypnotic red, i love the sheerness and it looks way better on my lips than in the tube. only i cant really compare it to a lipbalm because i feel like it dries out my lips :(

  5. Oh my.. that lipstick is the PERFECT baby pink! Lovely! x

  6. That lipstick looks absolutely STUNNING!

  7. I love this palette & concealer too :)
    I don't have the same color, but i love the lippy's! I think i actually prefer them to the lip butters xx

  8. The lipstick is wonderful! :*
