Beauty| Current Favourites

I had wanted to start doing a monthly favourites for ages now but I realised I didn't switch things up often enough to have a different set of favourites to blog about each month. So instead I've decided to start posting about my current favourites every now and again to keep you posted on what I've been loving lately.

Sleek BB Cream Medium
Sleek Liquid Illuminator
Mac Mineralize Skin Finish (MSF) deep dark
I recently rediscovered Sleek's BB cream and liquid illuminator whilst shopping my stash and can't for the life of me understand why I stopped using them. I've literally been reaching for these two daily to brighten up my complexion and to cover up imperfections. I love the lightness of the BB cream and the natural finish it provides which I can't seem to get enough of. Mac's MSF was a recent purchase and I'm not quite sure what took me so long. I prefer it to my Mac loose powder which has/was always a staple of mine. Not only does it leave your skin looking flawless, it doesn't leave that cakey artificial look that I find a lot of powders do.

Sleek exaggerate
Avon Mega effects mascara in blackest black
I've been loving purple lips lately and have found myself reaching for this Sleek one, particularly during the day. It is such a pretty purple and compliments my complexion perfectly. I do find it a tad drying although that's easily fixed with a coat of Vaseline.
Unto the bestest mascara in the world; I'm usually not convinced by the mascaras that promise the world, I've always been a firm believer that it's the technique you use not the product that gives you long lustrous lashes, however this mascara right hurrrrrrrr is the shizzzzzz! Seriously, I love this stuff. Shaped like a mini comb, it really does manage to extend your lashes from the root providing great length. Love, love, LOVE!

I'll start off by saying, Instagram made me buy this! This micellar water has featured on practically every blogger's Instagram and I just had to see what all the fuss was about. Luckily I wasn't disappointed at all. This product is uh-ma-zing! It really does what it says on the bottle and gets rid of every last bit of make-up. My skin has been seriously sensitive since giving birth and I started to find that my usual face products were a bit too harsh, however this cleanser has been very gentle on my skin and has left it clean and refreshed. I love the fact that it isn't drying either. 

I can't get enough of Real Techniques brushes. Since purchasing these a few months months back, I haven't used anything else. Despite washing  them a few times, the bristles are still in tact which is a sign of a good quality brush. My powder brush in particular has had the most amount of use and I find that it works especially well with my Mac MSF.

I've been wearing this scent daily since I first got it. I just love it! I get bored of perfumes quite easily, however this has stood the test of time. It's such a soft scent that lingers delicately on your skin, perfect for everyday use. I've actually ordered another one from Avon just to have in case it is discontinued. 
Paranoid much? Lol.
