Now that the festive season is upon us, here’s some products I’ve loved throughout November and definitely party makeup favourites!
I love how festive all these products look and unintentionally, they are definitely pieces to include in your Christmas makeup looks. As a beauty blogger I love discovering new brands so todays post also includes my first impressions of a luxury skincare brand and a sparkly makeup brand.
Sunkissed Luxe Glow Dry Oil Mist
I picked this up at the Professional Beauty event in October and normally I wouldn’t go for a tanning mist but this is beautiful! It’s so easy to use and the instant colour just adds a natural glow with a hint of sparkle. I wouldn’t use it completely on its own but if you want a quick bronze or touch up this is perfect. I’ve usually used it for my legs as a top coat to add a lovely shine!
Maybelline Tattoo Brow
I’ve used this for a couple of months now and I’m super impressed with it. I’ve seen a couple of mixed reviews, but mainly positive. If you need a tint in between your brow appointments this is the one for you. I normally leave it on for about 30 mins and the tint just peels off. You normally get a good few days out of this before it fades – its made such a difference to my brow makeup on a morning.
MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow
I can’t even put into words how pretty this shade is. You’ll of seen me mention this in my Snowball collection review here. I’ve worn this so much since I’ve had it and as you can see, the shade is just perfect for this time of year. I’ve actually worn it for day makeup and it looks subtle with a rose gold look.
Prima Liquid Gold Pressed Glitter
I’ve never used this brand until now but my gosh their pressed glitter collection is insane. My blogger friends introduced me to this brand and as my readers know, I love metallic glitter. This pressed glitter has glitter glue inside so you simply dab a little on your finger and blend onto your eyelid. It’s as easy as that, the pigment is amazing and you only need a tiny little swatch and your eyes are shining. I really want to try more, maybe a nice red for Christmas.
It Cosmetics CC+ Coverage Cream
Full coverage that works! The lovely PR team behind It cosmetics sent me a few samples to try including two of their cult concealers. I wasn’t entirely sure at first but after a couple of uses, I really like it. I like the easy application with this and its been a saviour for my dark circles – thanks to the frosty cold mornings. I definitely want to try more from their range. Let me know if you’d like me to do a first impressions post.
Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette
Seriously how beautiful is the natural beauty palette? I’ve been going to a few events lately so this has been perfect to keep in my bag. It has everything from bronze to highlight to eyeshadow! The palette comes with a generous mirror too and after having it a while it deserves some recognition. You can check out my full review here.
Payot Skin-Perfecting Cream
This is also a new brand I’ve been introduced to. We met the team at Professional Beauty and they give us all a couple of samples to try. I have to say this is my favourite out of the bunch. It feels like a creamy primer, the texture is so soft and smooth. It really does help hide your pores and like the name, it perfects your skin ready for foundation.
YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer
Another primer I’m loving! As you all know my no.1 foundation is the Touche Eclat and after trying a couple of samples of this, I decided to get the full version a couple of months ago. November has been quite a dreary month so I’ve used this more than usual to give my face that brightening feeling with the gold speckles inside. I’ve tried so many primers but this has got to be one of my faves, I just wish it was cheaper!
My last monthly favourites of 2017! For Decembers version I’m going to be doing 2017 favourites instead so keep a look out for that. I hope you are all enjoying my Christmas themed posts, I have another gift guide going up on Friday with lots of luxury products. Don’t forget to enter my giveaway too!
