Current favourite make up products!

Hey guys! Today's post will be about my current favourite make up products. I didn't do a December favourites as there just wasn't much I loved and I noticed I've never done a make up favourites before so why not share it with you guys?


L'Oreal True Match Foundation 

I recently bought this foundation in the colour 8.N - Cappuccino, I'll be very honest, this foundation surprised me, not only was the shade perfect but the coverage is really good too. I find that I don't need to put too much concealer to cover any dark marks because this does a pretty good job itself. It has a slight shimmer to it too so your skin looks glowy once applied. I would suggest shaking the bottle first because it's quite watery. I have combination skin so my skin gets very oily throughout the day, as much as I still get oily with this foundation on, it's not anything extreme. Apply a little powder and you're good to go. This also retails for £9.99.. bargain!

Nyx Matte Finish Setting Spray 

I recently ran out of my Fix+ setting spray from Mac and I told myself I needed to get the Nyx setting spray next, I've heard a lot of good things about it so I was eager to try it out. The bottle is quite small and retails for £7.00, which isn't too bad in my opinion. It does the job too, I can see why people like it so much, it definitely gives me that matte finish. For a drugstore product, this is really good. 

Brows and glow!

Mac Mineralize Skin finish 

I mentioned this product in my recent favourites, it's the first highlight I've ever got and I've now become one of those girls who can't put a face of make up on without a bit of highlight lol. I don't know what I was doing before! I just feel like this completes a make up look by adding that glow to your face. What makes me happy about this is that I'll have it for a very long time because a little goes a long way.

Pixi Brow Palette 

I also wrote a review on this product recently, you can read more about it here. I never thought I'd see the day where I'd switch from an eyebrow pencil to an eyebrow powder, I feel like my brows have a lot more definition because of this and I'll definitely repurchase it! 


L.A. Girl Pro Conceal 

I recently repurchased this concealer because it worked really well with me the first time, except this time I got a different shade, called fawn. This shade seems to be the most popular among dark skin girls whereas before I used the shade toffee. Lets just say, I won't be getting the shade toffee anymore lol. I've heard people say that this concealer can be quite drying which I totally understand because I had the same issue at first but I found that shaking it before using it helps. This also helps stopping it from being so watery. 


I'll just talk about these all together, I have found that I have been recycling these 3 shades a lot recently! The MAC lipstick is a matte shade in Diva, the Kylie lipkit is in True Brown K and the NYX soft matte lip cream is in Madrid. Can I just say, I am dreading when my lipkit by Kylie runs out, this has been such a great buy for me and I've recieved a lot of compliments about it too. As for the MAC lipstick and the Nyx lip cream, they work brilliantly together for a berry red shade.. perfect for winter. 


I was given these mascara's in a gift set for Christmas and was so excited to try them out. These two combined together give me lashes I never thought I could have lol. The Gucci eye mascara is great for getting those small hairs in the inner corners of my eye and also extending my bottom lashes. The Lancome hypnose mascara is also really good for really bringing out my eye lashes and making them look full. I've actually heard a lot of bloggers raving about this mascara and I can see why. I've always struggled when it comes to bringing out my lashes because they're super small but I'm loving what these two mascara's are doing for me at the moment. 

I've also really been loving my Morphe 35W eye shadow palette. I actually need to try out different looks with the other shades because I've been loving my bronze day time glam! 

What are some beauty favourite you've been loving? I'd love to discover some new things.
