The Products I am Using Right Now #2
I haven't done this type of post for a while and things have changed a lot since then. Here is my first post.
Shampoo and Conditioner: I tend to use a mixture of Shampoo and Conditioner, I find that it keeps things exciting and also lessens the chance of product build up. In my shower at the moment is:
L'Oreal Ever Strong Shampoo – I have re-purchased this a few times but I really don't know what I like about it, it is just a good everyday shampoo that does what a shampoo should.
L'Oreal Fall repair X3 – This is a recent purchase it seems to be good for them really dull hair days where it needs some TLC. I can really feel the difference in the ends of my hair when I have used this.
It's a 10 Miracle Hair Mask – Full review coming soon.
Aussie 3 minuet Miracle SHINE. – I have reviewed the 3 Minuet Miracle products before and this one is no different. Read my comparison with high end treatments here
Lush BIG - See full review here
It’s a 10 Miracle leave in Conditioner – this is truly one of the best things in my whole beauty collection. I really does do what it says on the tin. Full review coming soon.
Babyliss Big Hair Hot Air Styler – This is my new toy, I got it for Christmas from Jordan. It is a amazing. I will rave about it in a post coming soon.
Body Moisturiser: I don’t really use one but I should as i have dry skin on my legs, I am just too lazy and I really don’t like the feeling cream on my body and it sort of makes me cringe rubbing it in. Does anyone have any suggestion on how I can get round my wired fears.
Deodorant: Sure Skin Care 24 Hour - I have fairly sensitive skin under my arms so a lot of deodorant makes me itchy. This one I have found is fine and it keeps me nice a fresh all day :).
Fake Tan: I am not a tan-aholic but for spacial associations I will do a tan;
St Moritz - It has been the same for a few years now.
Rimmel Sun Shimmer Wash off - I am loving this for a quick tan. You can put on for a night out and then wash off the next morning. It sets quickly and leaves a nice even colour that’s not orange, you just need to pray it doesn’t rain. I have also discovered the Tanning Mit... I don’t know how I tanned without this before. It makes life so much easier.
Foundation: I change my foundation up and I don’t wear it all the time as I need to give my skin time to breath otherwise I will break out. That being said I don’t have a few I reach for more often.
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua – I bought this because I heard a lot of good reviews about it, I must admit I am Chanel Fan and to me it is the height of makeup luxury so I was very excited about. It is good but not great for skin but I still wear it because I feel posh then I have it on. Fickle but true. :)
Clinique Anti Blemish – This has been in my collection for a few years now and I have re-purchased it loads of times. A full review here
Bourjois Healthy Mix – I like this foundation to make my skill feel alive, I feels like it is doing your skin some good when I wear it. Again this one is not great for my skin (breaks me out) but I like the semi matte finish it gives me.
If you have any foundation recommendations for acne prone skin please let me know. I am in the market!
Liz Earl Cleans and Polish – This a staple in my life and I don’t think I could live without it. I use it about 3 times a week.
Vitcy Normaderm Cleansing Gel – Full Review Coming Soon.
Vitcy Normaderm Exfoliator – Full Review Coming Soon.
Real Techniques Buffing Brush – I have three of these so I always have a clean one ready to go. I love it so much
Real Techniques Expert Face Brush – This is similar to the buffing brush but slightly smaller so it is good for getting closer the nose and eye areas. Need to get a few more :) Review on all the Real Technique Brushes here.
Powder: I don’t really use one.
Concealer: I have a few for different things.
Collection Lasting Perfection – a brilliant all over concealer for small issues.
Bobby Brown Corrector – For under my eyes when they are particularly bad
MAC Studio Finish – for them stubborn issues that just won’t cover i break out this bad boy. If I use this to much it does break me out though. But now and again it is fine.
Blush: It changes depending on what king of look I am going for but I am loving;
NARs Orgasm – It is the perfect every day colour and look natural but glowing on my skin.
NYC Smoothing Skin Bronzer in Sunny – Thank you Sam Sherman for making me aware of this bronzer. I saw in a local discount shop (the warehouse factory) and picked it up for £2. Bargain and I love it!
Highlighter: I change this up depending on what blush I am using but I tend to reach for my;
Dior Amber Diamond – Review here
Eyeshadow Base: It has been the same for about 5 years;
Urban Decay Primer Potion – I have decanted mine in to an old MAC Fluid Line pot. It is so much easier to use and doe not dry up.
MAC, Urban Dacay and INGLOT
Eyeliner: I mostly just use eyeshadows with a eyeliner push brush. I learnt the technique from Gossmakeupartist. Check out his video here.
Shu Uemura – Full Review here.
Clinique High Impact – I seem to have lots of the little sample tube of this mascara which is handy because I love it.
Lipstick: How can you choose just one? I do post Lipsticks on the week though so you can see what I love on a weekly basis. Follow me on twitter and I will update you when I have posted.
Lipgloss: I don’t really wear lipgloss anymore, I like lip conditioners better now.
I would love to know what products you are using right now? If you do something like this them please let me know in the comments or on twitter.
