Face Products

I just wanted to do a quick post on my most used cheek and brow products at present. I try so many different things on a weekly basis, but these are the products I keep going back to. So, hope you enjoy!

L-R -- Vivo Ultimate Brow and Eye Kit RRP £5 (Gone up in price since I bought, cheeky Tesco)
 I'm not one for going O.T.T on my eyebrows but I do like to lightly fill them in amongst try and battle with my stray brows that go in all kinds of directions.
As well as my favourite brow kit, the Vivo Ultimate Brow and Eye Kit, I love the Benefit Speed Brow to keep them in place all day. Speed brow isn't cheap by any means (RRP £18) but the Vivo kit was actually bought on a whim when I needed a little angle brush! It was only £4. Bargain.

Other favourite brow kits I use is the Benefit Browzings and Elf Eyebrow Kit, both just as good and do the job!

L-R -- Mac Blush Well Dressed, The Balm Fratboy, Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer (old packaging)
I love these 3 products and interchange them regularly when I'm on the go. Mac Well Dressed is a staple blush that every girl needs. It suits all skin tones and is very subtle. I love it.
The Balm FratBoy was a Carmine addition (RIP Carmine) and I was so pleased to have received it! This is a little darker than Mac Well Dressed but it's a lovely pink warm shade.
Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer is an old favourite. I use this to contour rather than put it all over my face. There are tiny speckles of shimmer which I prefer not to put all over my face, but just using to contour is fine. (Since taking these pictures, I've actually thrown the new MUA Bronzed Perfection into my daily make-up kit review here)

Left -- Boots Vitamin E Eye Cream, Top -- MUA Every Lash Mascara, Bottom -- L'oreal False Lash Telescopic
These 3 products are my everyday go to eye products. I've been using the Boots Vitamin E Eye Cream for quite some time now and it's great for brightening the under eye area. I've not noticed any significance in my 21 year old wrinkles which are starting to creep up on me but it's a great eye cream and is only £2.54. (Boots are currently on 2 for £4 so snap it up quick) You can buy from Boots here.

The MUA Every Lash Mascara is an amazing bargain. It's currently on offer for £2 on the MUA store site so get it quick! The wand isn't dissimilar to the L'oreal False Lash Telescopic, but I still prefer the L'oreal False Lash every time. I don't find that it's dark enough for me but overall it does help with volume, which I am lacking a lot of.

L'oreal False Lash Telescopic is the best mascara I've tried. I bought this at duty free coming back from my holiday in April and it was a lot more expensive than here actually, I wish I knew at the time but hey that's duty free for you. You can buy L'oreal Telescopic from Boots for £10.99, Currently £8.41 on offer at Feelunique here with free delivery

L-R -- The Vintage Cosmetic Company Eyelash Curlers, Benefit Eye Bright Pencil, Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer.
These 3 are more of my must have favourites including my Vintage Cosmetic Company Eyelash Curlers that I got in my She Said Beauty Box. These replaced my trusty Primark curlers and I'm so glad! They were quite rubbish to tell you the truth and these fit in my makeup bag, are easy to use (no ripping out my eyelashes like my Primark ones) and easy to clean after getting mascara on them. Feelunique are currently doing them on offer for £5.60.

The Benefit Eye Bright Pencil is something I've had for too long. I've had it that long, I lost it for a while and re-discovered it again lately, hence how little it's been used. It's been sharpened lots to make sure no bacteria is lurking, don't worry. I use this to highlight underneath my brow bone and also on my lower lash line. It makes me look a lot more awake than I am at 8am when at work! You can buy this from Feelunique for £14 with free p+p.

The Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer is something I reviewed recently, so instead I'll leave you the link for that here.

  1. I love the chocolate bronzer too, it gives such a lovely natural bronze colour! X

  2. I am a huge fan of the Vivo brow kit. I picked it up whilst shopping in Tesco & wasn't sure it woud be up to much. But was pleasantly surprised.
    I love my AVON cheek blush & highlighter duo. Ive been reaching for it alot lately.

  3. Everyone raves about that Bourjois bronzer but for me whenever I swatch it it just doesn't seem dark enough for me! xo
