Beauty Bits I've Been Loving

August 17, 2017
It feels like a l i f e t i m e since I've written a beauty post because I've been working and I only really get to do my make up on my days off and after spending actual time and effort on my makeup during my two days off I realised I  have a number products that I've actually been loving and I wanted to share them with you. I also have a lot of skincare bits that I want to share so I'm definitely down for writing my skincare routine at some stage AKA probably in about 3 months 'cos I'm the worst blogger ever.

Anyway, here are some of the products I've really been enjoying recently. I also need to make a note to start doing these types of posts again because they are probably one of my fav types of posts to read. Whadoya think?

Tarteiest Pro Amazonian Clay Palette
I talked about this palette in my Sephora Haul a few weeks ago, and since then I've found myself reaching only for this palette. The shades are so me - burnt orange, nudes, pink light browns - and they are ALL MATTE apart from four shimmers, which I also love. The actual palette smells so good, and the mirror is really high quality. I've swatched a few of my fav shades for you (I mean, look at that gold shimmer, literal perfection).

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer
I remember writing about this concealer when I first started my blog because I was obsessed with it, but I never repurchased it until recently and I'm so mad at myself because I love it again. Recently I've been having a hard time with concealer because no matter how much I set under my eyes they all crack (AKA I'm getting OLD) but this concealer is pretty darn good at hiding those little wrinkles!

Catrice Glam & Doll Ultra Mascara
Before I got this mascara I had been using They're Real and Catrice Glam & Doll and I loved them both but they both ran out almost at the same time (why does that always happen?) so I just picked up another one by Catrice. I have pretty good lashes, and with the help of my Sephora eyelash curler which I also mentioned in my Sephora Haul, pretty much any mascara does the job for me. I wanted to mention this mascara anyway, though because I find that it's a pretty solid dupe for They're Real. It gives really good volume and length and I find that the formula is pretty much identical, for a fraction of the price.

NYX Lid Lingerie Eye Tint*
I got three of the Lid Lingerie Eye Tints through PR (I got one months ago and never used it but I got two different shades a few weeks ago). I knew I would love them because I had actually used the first one before and I remember it being really blendable, it just wasn't a colour I would go for, but the shades I got this time round are so much more 'me'. I got Whimsy and Nude To Me which are really wearable colours and shades that I would reach for frequently. Like I said, they are really blendable, and are fab on their own as well as underneath another shimmer (I like to put Glam from the Tarte palette over the shade Nude To Me) They're also amazing for on the go use because you can literally blend them across your lid with a bit of mascara and you have a really pretty eye look, like I did here.

Let me know if any of these products are among your favourites, or if you have any other recommendations. I'd love to hear from you!
