Currently Loving #1

So today's post is going to be something new and an addition I would like to share with you on a regular basis, maybe monthly or every couple of months, where I show you products or purchases I am currently loving. This month I have a whole heap of make up products and tools that I have been reaching towards on a daily basis that I absolutely adore!

Move over Accessorize Volumising Mascara, this one from Soap & Glory is now a firm favourite and taken poll position as my favourite mascara. I just love how this mascara makes my lashes look amazing, so long and voluminous, its just love! I received this in the Yule Monty gift set for Christmas, and have literally been using this mascara everyday, and as of yet it has failed to let me down. A definite mascara holy grail!

Ever since I was kindly sent this super cute LED compact mirror, this has been my go to make up bag mirror. What I love about this mirror is that it small and compact, a perfect travel/handbag sized product, that you can take with you on the go.

I've previously reviewed this lipstick here, so I wont go into too much detail, but for only £1, this lipstick is pretty much perfect! Wild Berry is such a gorgeous, wearable shade that you can easily build up from a slight berry tone to a vampy berry shade, which makes it such a versatile shade to suit any skin tone or occasion. I wear this shade on a nearly day to day bass, with just a sheer application to my lips for a lovely but subtle berry tone.

I'm not much of an eyeliner girl, I may wear a little for a special occasion or a night out, but on an everyday basis, it's not for me. I'm not sure whether it suits me or I'm just applying it wrongly or just haven't found the right product/formula, but I find this gel liner from Maybelline a bit of a winner! I also have the black version of this gel liner, which I think looks great on a night out, but for a more softer and subtle make up look, I tend to choose brown as its less in your face. The liner comes with a brush that helps with an easy application and the thing I love about gel liners is that they stay in place all day and don't budge!

 Shade 16 from the Kate Moss collection at Rimmel is such a gorgeous peachy coral light pink colour that just screams spring/summer to me. I find it to be the perfect everyday colour, which applies so smoothly to the lips and provides such a great colour after one or two swipes, that's great pigmentation for you! A definite favourite of mine!

Another product I have praised highly of in the past, and you can see my thoughts on this blusher here. The selection of colours and shades in the English Rose Powder are super pretty, with gorgeous shades of pink, coral, nudes, lilac and browns, I feel this offers a lovely and pretty perfect, everyday natural flush to the cheeks. 

This is a fairly new purchase that I have owned for around 3 weeks now and I absolutely adore the colour. It is one of the prettiest soft pink, creamy and glossy shades that I have ever got hold of and I am in love! At first I wasn't too sure whether the colour would suit me, but after playing around with building it up and the application, I think its a very pretty and girly lip colour, something that I don't tend to favour!

I've not been one for using a highlighter with my make up, simply because I had no idea what they did or how to use them, so I picked this one up from MUA on a bit of a whim. The highlighter itself is a gorgeous pearly, champagne colour which I think looks gorgeous on the face, without being too overwhelming or glittery. A perfect highlighter product for a beginner like me!

Now I'm not really a lip gloss kinda girl. When I imagine lip glosses, I find sometimes they can be quite wet, sticky and gloopy on the lips, which doesn't sound attractive at all. But I was very surprised when I tried this one out. I've had this lip gloss since Christmas, so its safe to say I have given it a fair trial, and on days where I don't want to wear a lipstick, I will simply use this just to add a little something to my lips. the scent of the lip gloss is really nice and not plasticy and I like the way it makes your lips tingle slightly when you apply it.

These brushes are absolutely amazing! I don't own that many make up brushes to be honest but these are definitely a great addition to my make up bag and ones I would definitely recommend. These brushes I bought in a set which includes: 1x Mineral Powder Brush, 1x Powder Brush, 1x Concealer Brush, 1x Eye Shadow Brush. The brushes themselves are very lightweight, soft, durable, compact and perfect sized for keeping in a smaller make up bag or taking with you when you are travelling.

So hopefully this has given you a little insight into the make up products and brands I have been loving over the past month or so. If you would like to see a similar post in the next few months then please let me know. Alternately, I could do a post on skincare, haircare or just random favourites that I have been loving. If you're a regular reader of my blog, then you'll know I like to mix things up a little bit!

What products are you currently loving? Is there any products you would recommend to me based on my current favourites? Have you tried out any of the products I have featured today?
