These are a few of my favourite things

Favourite Things

Avon Plump Pout in the shade Nude Pout - This is a lovely nude gloss, with a hint of pink. Not too sticky. I’m not normally a gloss wearer but I have been enjoying this. Its an easy colour to wear and handy to have in my bag. I’m going to try a few more of these glosses from Avon.

Estee Lauder ANR II  £65 – I only have love for this & use is most nights. This is aimed at repairing the damage done during the day by environmental aggressors and keeps your skin hydrated and looking fresh and smooth. I have noticed a big difference in my skin, it isn’t so red and my breakouts don’t leave such visible dark spots. A little goes a long way with this serum and it is lasting me a very long time.

L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in Iced Latte – This is a very pretty finely milled loose shadow. The colour is so pretty, it’s a champagne with a metallic finish and is very pigmented. Makes the perfect inner corner highlight, it brightens up my eyes. I reach for is almost daily.

Burt’s Bees Honey & Grapeseed Oil Hand Cream  £9.99 – A non greasy hydrating hand cream. It smells a little odd, but it’s so nourishing and keeps my hands smooth that I can get past the smell.

Favourites Favourites

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Lioness  £14 – If you want a liner that lasts all day then this is for you. You can smudge it out when you first apply it, but then it doesn’t budge. Its a twist up so you don’t need to sharpen it which is very handy.

Moroccan Oil* £13.45  - Hello miracle worker – this tames my unruly hair and makes it look sleek and glossy. Don’t worry about this making your hair greasy or weighing it down as it is lightweight (as long as you don’t use too much product) – I find two drops / pumps is enough.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Lip Repair Balm*  £17 – This is a lovely lip treatment for the winter. It’s very thick and hydrating. I use it at night before bed and wake up with smooth soft lips.

Me Me Me Bronzer

Me Me Me Shimmer Stack in Bronze £9.99 – I love this, it is pretty and can be used as eyeshadows or as a shimmer highlight. It works great as both. I have used this a it since I bought it last year, but its perfect for a night time look as it does have quite a metallic finish.

Products that are marked with an * have either been sent to me for my consideration or I’ve received at events. I’m under no obligation to review them on my blog. However if I do, the reviews are 100% my own.

    Love the Burt’s bees hand cream and the Moroccan oil, I have not used the 8 hour cream but I know people rave about it.

    Great stuff! I tired Moroccan oil for the first time a few days ago (I’m not sure why I haven’t tried it earlier) and it’s amazing! :)

  5. I really want to try Burt’s Bees hand cream or anything else from the range apart from lip balms. I’m seriously addicted to my mango one, it’s constantly on my desk! :) Great reviews as usual! I always admire your writing style, how you can be so succinct and yet review the product in all its glory! :) X

  6. I’ve heard so many good things about Estee Lauder ANR II – I tried a sample of the original but didn’t really love it (nor did I hate it). I don’t tend to use many products in my hair but I do like Morrocanoil :)

    Ahh I love the advanced night repair too :) x

    Ahhh, ANR. I have wanted to try it for soooo long but don’t think I’ll ever be able to justify that price! I actually think it’s quite cruel that some of the best products are so expensive, but there you go.
    Lots of lovely picks!

  9. When it comes to lip products, gloss is my preferred choice. I’ve taken a mental note to try out Avon’s lip glosses at some point.
    Thanks for sharing some of your favourites of late.
