Now it’s been a while since I did a favourites post, they’re not normally something I enjoy writing or find interesting to read…however this month I’ve been loving them for whatever reason. I blame this extreme heatwave.
The Botanics range is a whole new story, I feel as though Zoe’s products just keep maturing with every range she releases. I was first pulled in by the Sweet Inspirations, stayed for the Gelateu, fell in love with Snow’ella and now ready to take on the world with Botanics.
Beauty boxes, I’m sure you’re familiar with the concept and have most likely read several blog posts featuring the likes of Birchbox, Glossy box as well as the standard Latest In Beauty boxes. I, however, am more a fan of the one-off limited edition boxes.
A couple of weeks ago I was shopping in Next and spotted their makeup range and I’m all for clothing brands bringing out collections. Some of my favourite products are from New Look and Primark, so of course I wanted to pick up a couple items to give a try…even more tempting was that they were 3 for 2.
While I have products that are my ride and die, I always love mixing it up. I’m always scared of ending up with products gathering dust because I’ve forgotten about them and not used them…after all makeup isn’t cheap. That being said I think I’ll always stick to a foundation I know is reliable (even if I do love testing new ones out) as well as having a trusty nude lipstick I can always rely on to make me look and feel confident af.
So as much I love reading and watching people’s monthly favourites, I personally hate writing the posts myself. I’ve attempted them several times in the past since they’re typical “beauty blogger” posts. In honesty their not my cup of tea though. Instead, I’m going to talk about new discoveries I’ve made every month, but not go into too much detail.
I’ve been alive for 21 Valentines days. How many have I celebrated? None…until this year. You can bet your sweet ass I’m excited about it, and while I don’t believe in the hype around giving presents (after all I’d rather give Sam a present when I wanted to, opposed to when a calendar told me to). I am, however, looking forward to making plans together, having a little pamper and just spending time with Sam.
So between Christmas and my birthday, I may have picked up one, two or quite a few new makeup items and I thought I’d put together an edit of some of my favourite things that I’ve picked up. Most of these are sure to become staples in my everyday makeup, or they already have.
So while I haven’t been to a crazy amount of Christmas parties, I do still love to play around with my makeup and create looks that I might just get to actually wear to a party at some point
although it’s only 5 days until the big day…so not very likely. That doesn’t mean I don’t need to have several makeup products that I can count on to create a look that is going to last through a day of Christmas present delivery…or last minute shopping. Although I think I have everyone’s presents already.
