Four to Try

I never seem to accumulate enough products to do a traditional monthly favourites, but there are a few things I’m using as a part of my daily makeup routine that are too good not to share! 

Too Faced Hangover Primer – £27

I can’t believe that I never used to use a primer before this – believe the hype, it’s a game changer! I have combination skin that can become quite dehydrated, this manages to hydrate my skin without clogging my pores or making it any more oily, leaving me a soft and makeup ready base without feeling at all greasy. I’m now on the hunt for a more affordable option that I can use daily though, £27 is a little steep when most days I’m just going to work.

GOSH Velvet Touch Lip Liner in Nougat Crisp – £4.99

Earlier this month I had a little makeup clear out and discovered an amazing dupe for my trusty Charlotte Tilbury Pillowtalk lip cheat.. In terms of both formulation and colour ‘Nougat Crisp’ is actually pretty similar. The formulation isn’t at all drying and the soft, velvety texture makes cheating a fuller lip easy, exactly like the CT lip cheats! One thing I would say is that when swatched the colour does look slightly darker, but on the lips it really does create the same perfect base for a natural lip look.

Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette – £18

It’s rare that I will wear eyeshadow on a day to day basis, but when I do I will more often than not reach for this beauty. I love warm toned shadows and this palette is jam packed with glistening golden browns, the perfect matte crease shades and colours that look stunning teamed together or worn alone. The formulation of both the shimmers and mattes is exactly what I look for, pigmented, blendable and soft to the touch. I really need to invest in more Zoeva palettes as I’m so impressed with this, my favourite shades are Pure Ganache and Freshly Toasted (Warm Notes is also stunning for a bolder look)

Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Brows – £18.50

This is a more recent addition to my brow routine, and a brow gel is definitely not something I usually splurge on after finding more affordable alternatives – but, I do like to make exceptions for Charlotte Tilbury. Unlike a lot of my other brow taming gels, this really does manage to add volume and give me a naturally thicker looking brow. I have the shade Cara and it’s the perfect medium cool toned brown, it doesn’t leave my brows looking stiff yet they stay groomed and in place throughout the whole day. As the wand is so small it does take a little longer to go through all the brow hairs with this, but the extra time is well worth it for the results.

Have you tried any of these products?
