Current Beauty Favourites

I can't believe we're officially in Autumn. Summer is more than over and we can now start looking forward to boots, cold clothing and weather. Not to mention Christmas! I've been loving changing up my usual beauty products for Autumn/Winter shades and scents and these are my current favourites.

Daisy Dream was a recent addition to my perfume collection that I got for my birthday and I love it! It's such a fresh, fruity and sweet smell, which isn't particularly Wintery but I love it all the same. It doesn't last very long on me which is disappointing as Marc Jacobs Daisy lasted a good 8-10 hours on me.

Nuxe Reve de Miel doesn't need much introduction as I declared my love for the lip balm in my previous post but it doesn't get enough love as it should!


Maybelline Color Elixir is yet another new addition that I've been loving over the last few weeks. Long term readers will know I don't like lip glosses, especially thin consistency and tacky ones but this is just right. The shade I have is 110 Hibiscus Haven. It's a very pretty blue based pink which lasts around 3-4 hours and leaves a hint of a stain behind. The formula is way better than I expected and it was on 2 for £10 at Boots!



Last but not least is the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain. I really wanted to try this for a while but is another product that I dismissed due to the hype. I'd never really thought of trying it until girls at work urged me to, and it doesn't take much for me to succumb..

The shade featured is Barcelona Nights but I also have Rio Rush. Both colours are very pretty with Barcelona Nights being very Autumnal due to the dark shade, on fairer skin tones such as mine, it looks even darker. I also want to try India Intrigue which is very similar to Barcelona Nights but darker and more of a berry shade.

In terms of wear time it lasts around 3-4 hours, depending on how much I eat or drink in this time, but it isn't long lasting on me. There isn't much of a shade left behind with the 2 shades I own but I can imagine there is with the darker shades. Overall I find the formula quite moisturising and more of a lip gloss texture with a lipstick and lip gloss hybrid finish. I probably wouldn't re-purchase as there's better products out there but great shades overall.

What are your current favourites? What do you think I should try next?
