Five Favourites

A favourites post? Since when do I do those?! I'm thinking of making them a regular thing.
These are my favourite beauty items at the moment.

I've actually had the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder for quite a few months now and I've been meaning to give it a mention. Firstly, it smells freakin' awesome (the powder is infused with sharon fruit and yuzu fruit). This powder is so fine and light-weight that it doesn't even feel like there's anything on the skin. It's mattifying, but it doesn't make the skin look flat, so shine stays at bay while the skin still looks really fresh. I wear the shade 53 beige clair.

Next is the Catrice Lashes to Kill Waterproof Volume Mascara. I decided that I needed a waterproof mascara for the summer and this one has stolen the show! The brush is a nice medium size with fibre bristles, while the formula is creamy, but not wet, and super black. My lashes look really full and long with this mascara, and it's easy to double-up coats as the mascara dries (I'd say it takes maybe a minute until it sets). I've done a review of the false fibre extensions version of this mascara here.

The last makeup item is the Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in the shade Sugar Plum Fairy. It's a lovely purple-berry shade and I think it's a great take on a dark lip for spring. The formula is quite matte, so I recommend wearing a lip balm underneath or a gloss on top.

For hair, I've been loving the VO5 Nourish My Shine Miracle Concentrate. This a hair oil with Argan oil. It's got a little dropper that makes the oil really easy to use: I separate my hair down the middle, put two drops of oil in my hand and then rub the oil gently through one half of my hair, concentrating on the ends and do the same to the other half. This leaves my hair really soft, shiny and healthy-looking.

Saving the best for last, I am absolutely in love with the Passion Fruit Body Butter from The Body Shop. We all know how good these body butters are, right? And it legit smells like heaven. I like to apply this all over before I go to bed, and I feel like I go to sleep really happily satisfied from smelling so good!

That'll be all, folks! Care to mention your current favourites?
Until next time xx
