May Favourites!

 It's favourites time again! But first, notice anything different? I am so happy to have got my blog redesigned by Abby and I absolutely love it, let me know what you think of it! So, on to my favourites, my skin has been terrible lately so I've been needing a little more coverage than normal when it comes to foundation, I decided to give the Mac Studio Sculpt foundation a whirl again. I seem to pick up this foundation, use it for a few days and then move on to something else, I haven't really tested it out fully. I am planning on doing a full review of this so keep an eye out for that but in short I have really been liking it for my temperamental skin! I recently bought the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, I already own the Buffing Brush (as well as almost every other Real Techniques brush!) and didn't know whether I should fork out more money on a similar brush. I can do a comparison post but I find that the Expert Face Brush is more dense which I personally really like! I think it would take a lot for a Real Techniques brush to be a disappointment as all the ones I have tried have been really great and even rival my Mac brushes! The Mac Melon Pigment has been on my wishlist for ages, but it was one of those items that I just never got around to buying. While in Mac I saw it and thought "why not?" I'm so glad I picked it up as I have used it everyday! This works great with my blue eyes, I've always been told that bronzey/gold shades really make blue eyes pop and it's true! I use this all over my lid and it's perfect! I have always avoided pigments as I thought they would get everywhere, I use this on my finger rather than a brush as I found that just caused a lot of fallout but patting it on with my finger didn't. I have wanted to try the Benefit They're Real mascara for ages, however it's so pricey! When I saw that Elle magazine had a miniature version, I rushed out and picked up a copy! I have been really impressed with this mascara and am even considering parting with my money and picking up the full size when I finish this one!! Finally my favourite perfume, I first received the Stella by Stella McCartney perfume for Christmas in a smaller size however last month for my birthday my friends bought the larger bottle for me. I'm not going to attempt to describe how this smells because I will fail spectacularly but if you go into Debenhams/Boots/John Lewis I would highly recommend you check it out as even though I have a few different perfumes I use this one everyday!

  2. LOVE your new blog layout, so simple yet very pretty :) Great post too, I was thinking about picking up the Expert Face brush but was worried it would be too similar to the Buffing brush, so I would love to see a comparison post :) xx

  13. Lushy favourites! I like a sheer sorta dewy finish with foundations but certain times of month would prefer a stronger coverage so might be worth checking Mac foundation out, thanks! The pigment looks beaut & you won't go back once you've tried they're real (it's a sod to remove though!) :)

    Love Kate at prettylittleus
