These products I feel I really need to mention as I've really been loving using them, all are totally worth purchasing and give you the best end result.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

First up is the newest addition to my foundation family. Long over due but I finally got Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk. I've seen this foundation all over different blogs saying how amazing it is but I never got round to purchasing it, the day finally came and I don't know why it wasn't sooner.

The product inside is all I could ever wish for, with my oily skin troubles I've searched high and low for the perfect foundation and I just haven't found "the one" until now.. This foundation is a dream to apply ( I apply with my Bobbi Brown Full Coverage Foundation Brush ) it covers all your imperfections very well, isn't thick or heavy feeling on the skin, the perfect shade and lasts amazing without me turning into an oily mess. I put this foundation to the test and it lasted all day without going too oily, my skin appeared a little more on the shinier side by the end of the day but it was nothing I couldn't handle. You can get a light/medium coverage if your wearing it throughout the day and you don't want too much on your face but you can build it up really nicely to give you that flawless canvas. This foundation has no SPF which means through the day you would have to apply something like a moisturizer that has SPF to protect your skin, most have that built in anyway so it's no worry. With this foundation having no SPF it makes it a fabulous foundation for nights out, as we all know.. no SPF means no white flash back on photos, result!
It is more pricier at £36.50 but totally worth it!

Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil

I ran out of my Sleek brow pencil and instead of just re-purchasing the same one of course I had to try something different. This one caught my eye as it was a roll up pencil, always what I go for as I hate the whole having to sharpen your pencils. The pencil is so thin, thinner than the Sleek one I had so I thought this would be perfect, I've not really been liking the way my brows have been looking, they just don't look as clean and polished as I'd like. Since using this I have been loving the way my brows are looking, because the pencil is thin it gives you more precision. The colour is great for my brows and for £8 you can't complain.

Kiko Smart Lipstick in 903 Candy Apple

I have a love/hate relationship with Kiko, I adore some of the products but some I've tried are awful! This lipstick is for sure in my favorites. Perfect pinkish shade that's not too pink .. if that even makes sense? It's super comfortable to wear it doesn't dry on the lips, it's a really nice creamy formula and I find the shade brightens up my face. Great for Spring/Summer time and I think it would compliment a lot of people!
Amazing quality for the £2.50 price tag.

Kiko Longlasting Cream Eyeshadow Stick in 05

The supposed dupe for the ByTerry Ombre Blackstar. I've been wanted to try these for a long time. I love the whole eyeshadow stick craze thats been going round, I find them to be really easy and quick to use.

Kiko's are by far the best I have tried, this shade in particular is so beautiful. Every time I wear this I seem to get compliments. It's a shimmery, glowy taupe shade. But like no other. Apply it all over the lid straight from the stick then you can blend it out with a brush or just use your fingers like I do sometimes if I'm in a rush. It's a really easy, effortless smoldering eye look that literally anyone could achieve. I've been using this a lot for the past few weeks and I don't think I'll be stopping any time soon.

£6.90 online or at your nearest Kiko store.

Illamasqua Gel Sculpt in Silhouette 

I just knew I had to get my hands on this new creation by Illamasqua. It's contouring heaven and I couldn't be more happy with it. It looks really scary in the tube but it blends out into the most natural looking contour that you just can't achieve with anything else. Because it's a gel it just seems to melt into the skin and leaves you with that perfect cheekbone. The shade is perfect, I can't stress enough how much I hate when I see a product thats too orangey or muddy, this is none of those. Blending it out with a beauty blender I find is the best way, it gives you the most flawless look. If you still haven't tried this then I highly recommend you do.

£22 online or at an Illamasqua counter.

  1. Love the lipstick. Beautiful color. xx

  2. I'm desperate to get my hands on brow archery, everyone seems to love it. I've never heard of kiko before but for 2.50 you can't go wrong!

    1. Yeah you really need to it's so nice,worth the hype! And if you're going to try anything from Kiko it will be the eyeshadow stick or the lip liners. I don't recommend the eyeshadows they do that can go in a palette, they're literally the worst!
