Beauty | My Favourite Beauty Items

I always find it hard to choose what my favourite beauty products are as I love too many. But I am a creature of habit and tend to stick to the same products for a couple of week, so I thought I would share with you what I've been loving lately.

First off lets talk about my new makeup bag and how perfectly it suits my life! It's by Lola & Gilbert and I picked it up from Boots for £12.99. They had quite a few to choose from and also have wash bags too. I love the funny sayings on them and I'm sure there's definitely one to suit everyone. I've been using the original Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for the longest time and love it as a pre-cleansing product and then I saw they released the new Garnier Oil-Infused Micellar Cleansing Water. Normally I hate the bi-phase oil cleansers as I find a lot of them leave a greasy film even though they claim not to. But as this was on offer I threw caution to the wind and purchased it. I'm so glad I did as I absolutely love it. I love the way it leaves my skin feeling, soft and smooth but not greasy, and I feel it takes less product to remove my makeup than the original one does. The next two products work wonders together, L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte Foundation and L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte Powder. I've mentioned the foundation on my blog before (read that post here) and mentioned how it's my absolute holy grail foundation, well that plus the powder is a force to be reckoned with. My makeup lasts all day and keeps my oil at bay, what more could you want! For concealer I've recently been trying out the bareMinerals Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer and it works great alongside my foundation. It stays put all day and the name rings true, it really is a complete coverage concealer. My new everyday lip product has been the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Obsession which I was a bit wary of as I had heard a lot of mixed reviews about them not being very matte. I'm glad I tried it out for myself because I have fallen in love with it. It does take some time to dry down matte but once it has it literally doesn't budge, even after eating and drinking. I was kindly sent the So Eco Bronzer Brush* to try out and after only a couple of uses I think I'm going to love it. The bristles are so soft and it's not too dense so you don't get too harsh of a look. Last but not least is my favourite eye combo which is the Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in the shade 06-Golden Brown with L'Oreal Color Riche Mono Eyeshadow in the shade 200-Over The Taupe. It's such a quick and simple eye look which is great for me when I have to get up at 2.30am for work.

Have you used any of my favourite beauty products before? What do you think of them?
