Currently Loving

I've been loving so many new products lately, mainly because I clearly can't be trusted with my bank card and keep spending! These products are such a nice mix of low end and higher end which is great as I sometimes neglect lower end products but I have been on a few visits to Boots and Superdrug to try some things out. I've recently rediscovered the Benefit Watt's Up, I remember absolutely loving this when I first purchased it but it got shoved to the back of my drawer when I purchased numerous other highlighters. I recently dug it out again and I'm once again obsessed. I like that this product is inbetween a powder and a liquid highlighter so it applies really nicely on the skin. It doesn't rub my foundation off or cause it to separate and it gives the most beautiful glow to the skin. I either apply it using my fingers or with a brush and both work really well, it does come with a sponge applicator on the other end which I don't find useful at all! Another cheek product I've been enjoying is the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge, I have two shades of this, Pink Powder and Calypso Coral. You can use these on your cheeks as well as on your lips so they're an amazing multi-purpose product if you need to pack light! I find Pink Powder a great subtle everyday shade that just adds a beautiful healthy glow to my skin. I apply it using a small stippling brush, starting with a tiny bit of product and building it up if I need to. However it's also really easy to use with your fingers to dab some colour onto your cheeks and lips so brilliant to have in your handbag for on the go. I've adored Charlotte Tilbury lip products for so long, they're the most beautiful colours and they apply like a dream so I was ecstatic to get one as my Secret Santa gift! This is the shade Hepburn Honey, I mainly own pink shades so it's really nice to add a brown nude to my collection. It's really wearable and subtle so I keep it in my handbag to wear as a daily lipstick if I feel I want to wear something while keeping it fairly natural looking. Other shades I adore are 'Penelope Pink' and 'Liv It Up.'

I've spoken about the Milani Conceal & Perfect Foundation in a previous post. I discovered this at the end of last year and I just adore it, especially the price! This just makes my skin look amazing, it's medium coverage but buildable and it works so well on my skin to last all day. It also photographs beautifully, even with flash photography. If you find yourself in Boots, I'd definitely recommend trying it out, it's by far my favourite drugstore foundation and potentially my favourite overall foundation. Elf's a brand I've not tried before, a friend said she loved their Flawless Concealer and for £5, I couldn't go wrong. This is lovely for under the eyes and on blemishes, it's not super full coverage but it still covers exactly what I need it to. The consistency is lovely, I find Tarte concealers too sticky and other concealers too thick and drying under the eye but this is so easy to blend and sits so well on the skin. In previous posts I mentioned the Tan Luxe Face Tan Drops and how much I was loving it, while in Superdrug I came across the St Moriz Radiant Glow Serum. This is basically the same kind of product but for a fraction of the price. In fact, I find this makes more of a difference in terms of my skin colour when I wake up. I mix this in with my vitamin c serum at night, using 2-3 drops and I wake up with a beautifully bronzed face. I don't find much different between this and the Tan Luxe (apart from the St Moriz making more of a difference colour wise when using less product) so would recommend you save your money and just pick this up! It's also going to last me absolutely ages as I use it about every 3 days. 

Are there any products you've been loving lately or have you tried any of the ones I've mentioned?
