Current favourites

So while I'm sick in bed with an infection, I thought I'd share some of my current favourites with you. I don't do a monthly favourites post because when I like something, I tend to use it for several months. So this is just a one-off post :)

Top left - Sleek blush in Honour
Top middle - Revlon Colorstay Combo/oily skin Natural Tan
Rimmel x10 volume flash mascara
Covergirl clump crusher masscara
Middle: Arbonne lipstick in Jam
Maybelline NY Color Tattoo Bad to the Bronze
Bottom: Nivea lip butter in caramel cream
Ulta3 'New Years Eve'
OPI 'Pink Yet Lavender' 
Sally Hansen Gem Crush 'Be-Jeweled'

Bad to the Bronze swatched

I am so late to the Color Tattoo party! I wrote them off as another hype and wasn't too interested. Also I have far too many eyeshadows anyway. But after seeing some beautiful swatches, I was so intrigued that I decided to try out this one. It cost me $10 from eBay. I absolutely love it, the formula is so creamy and glides on well. The colour is really pretty, perfect for someone conservative like me. It's also long lasting. 

Sleek blush in Honour

I've had this for a while, but haven't used it too much. I've just recently started using it and I love this colour and how nice it looks on my skin. 

Arbonne lipstick in Jam
Sleek blush in Honour
MNY Color Tattoo Bad to the Bronze

Jam is a gorgeous lipstick. I wore it to a friend's party recently and it went so well with the black dress I was wearing. It stands out in photos and it seemed to have good staying power, which is great considering I was enjoying cocktails that night ;)

Revlon Colorstay
This foundation tricks me into thinking my skin is really good, then I wash it off and realise my skin isn't THAT good. That's exactly what you want a foundation to do, right? It looks very natural, has excellent coverage and lasts all day (and some). It can be a bit difficult to get off, so I'd suggest using an oil-based remover. Also, why does it smell like paint?! The smell is so strong. None of my other foundations smell this horrible...

Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara
It gives great length, separates lashes and does not clump at all. 

Rimmel Mascara
This is similar to clump crusher, but it has a wetter formula so I feel like this gives my lashes extra thickness. I picked this up on sale and I'm really glad I did.

Nivea lip butter 
I love Nivea products and this one is no different. It smells like caramel popcorn :) 

and as for the nailpolishes...they're all glittery! I'm going through a huge glitter obsession at the moment. I think it's a great way to brighten up a mani and not have to spend loads of time doing so. I do love nail art, but I am so busy these days that I'm finding it hard to do exciting things with my nails. 

Do you like any of these products too? What are you currently loving?


  1. I'm a fan of the 24HR Color Tattoo as well! I have Bold Gold and Tough as Taupe and love them! Theyre so easy to apply and last all day. I also like that there is a range of colours avaliable from conservative like you said to greens and purples for nights out.

    1. Ooh I really want Bold Gold, I might have to keep an eye out for it :) some of the more 'out there' colours are beautiful (Tenacious Teal, wowza!) but I know I'd never use them.

  2. Love the OPI nail color!


    1. Me too, when I first saw it in store I was in awe...I wrote down the name and bought it off ebay for $10 less than the store price :)
