My 5 Favourite Beauty Products

You really can tell a lot about a person from their favourite beauty products. A bold red lipstick may suggest a confident character while packed-on bronzer could convey someone who worships the sun.
I like 'favourites' posts because you are guaranteed products with outstanding reviews, so if you're eager to find some new gems for your ever-growing collection, keep reading.

I am constantly looking for new and better mascaras, however this one has truly stood the test of time. It's key features are lengthening, definition and separation of the lashes. The formula is not too wet and not too dry and effortlessly manages to define my lashes and make them appear longer with no clumps. It also holds a mean curl and lasts all day without any smudging or budging! My favourite thing however is the curvature of the wand. It fits my eye shape perfectly and the thin wand means it is ideal for bottom lashes. This is definitely my go-to mascara for day and night however I will usually layer a volumising type over the top if I want WOW lashes as these provide a more natural, but still eye-catching look.


Blistex has three lip ranges: Cares, Rescues and Beautifies. I have tried and loved all of the Blistex Beautifies lip balms. This range features Lip Brilliance, Raspberry Lemonade Blast (which tastes AMAZING!) and MedPlus Cherry Berry as pictured. Lip Brilliance is my favourite lip balm of ALL TIME however I have lost it (oops) so will need to buy a new one ASAP before I get withdrawal symptoms. Blistex is a company truly dedicated to providing you with soft and beautiful lips - their products contain an abundance of vitamins and most have SPF too. You can find Blistex in Boots, Tesco and Superdrug. I highly recommend giving them a shot if you are looking for a new lip balm to try – you won’t be disappointed.


£1 (I kid you not!)
Really? A basic brown eyeshadow is one of my favourite beauty products? Yes, really – hear me out! This little pot of perfection is a great multi-tasker and the perfect shade for my eyebrows. I like to use shadow for a soft look and it is also easy to blend out if I make a mistake (which I do, a lot). The problem I have is that brown shadows are often much too warm or red-toned for my hair but this gem is ideal. It’s ashy in hue without being grey and is buildable. I apply it with an angled eyeliner brush. In addition, I also use it as a crease colour, sometimes to tightline my eyes instead of using black and it can also be used for contouring around the nose area if I feel so inclined. For an astounding £1, you really can’t go wrong, so if you’ve been struggling to find a cool-toned eyebrow product – this is it.


Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair 01:£4.19

The Collection Lasting Perfection concealer is well-known in the beauty world and this is why I initially bought it. I’ve now used up three tubes of Fair 01 which is the perfect shade for my ultra-pale complexion. It’s a dream to apply with excellent coverage and it does last all day. The doe-foot applicator also makes it easy to apply and then I just blend with my ring finger for a natural look. It’s affordable and lasts a long time in the tube, even if you use it on basically your whole face daily like I do.


MUA Intense Kisses Lipglosses:£2

OMG. This range is my number one favourite beauty product ever. Like, ever. The glosses have fantastic pigmentation and last a long long time. The variety of shades is excellent, they smell/taste like sweet vanilla and they’re not too sticky either. All in all, a fab product which I can’t speak of highly enough. The pretty packaging wraps it up nicely and the extremely affordable price of £2 is the final justification making this a must-buy product.


Well, we have reached the end of my 5 favourite beauty products - don't cry. Do we share any of the same favourites? If not, what is your ultimate beauty buy? I'd love to try it out!
