My 5 Most Used Brushes | Face

I have decided too do two posts on my favourite brushes, i am started with face brushes. All these brushes are very inexpensive (except one) that's why I chose them, although they are still very good quality! I am a very big lover of make-up brushes, I love everything about them.
The first brush I am going to talk about is the Mac 168 brush. This is the only higher end brush I have included because I dont have a cheep alternative. This is a brilliant blush brush, its also good for contouring; its super soft and is a perfect shape for the cheek. There are many cheep alternatives out there which are just as good. It retails for £27.00 on the Mac Website.
The next one I want too talk about is the E.L.F Small Stipple Brush. I love this brush! It is the perfect brush for cream blush/bronzers. Its a brilliant quality brush for only £3.95. It can be found on the E.l.F Website.
The next two brushes i want too talk about are both from Real techniques. The first one is the Contour Brush, I use this brush for two different things; blending in concealer and applying bronzer or contouring. I think it applys just enough product and blends it out at the same time. Then the Buffing Brush, which i use for foundation, it helps give a good coverage and blends it all in, it really does the work for you! They can be both bought from the same pack called the Core Collection from Superdrug for £20.99.
The last brush I want too talk about is the Joursna Brush. I bought this of Ebay, but i tried to get a link for you guys but I cant find it. It was from Hong Kong, and I believe it was around £3 or £4 which is so cheep because this brush is just as good as the others! It is super soft, makes my foundation look flawless and I love it.. I would recommend this is people can't afford any others and they want to find a good cheep brush, then to try this one!

Covergirl 3 in 1 Foundation | Review

When I first got this foundation I loved it! I bought it a while ago, while I was on holiday because I can't buy it in the UK. It had a good coverage, lasted a really long time, matched me really well. I didn't really have any complaints about it. 

However, when I went back to using it recently it wasn't the same, if that makes sense. It goes on perfectly matching my skin, good coverage ect.. But then it oxidises so bad to the point where I am one or two shades darker then my neck and it starts to go patchy and uneven. I have tried it with and without a primer and it does the same thing, I don't know if it's my skin because it has been really dry recently or the product but it doesn't work for me. 
If it didn't oxidise I would probably say it's one of my favourite foundations because it's a good coverage. 

I love this foundation to start with but then the longer I wear it I start not too love it so much.

E.L.F Matte Lip Colour | Review

I decided to do a review on these because I have been absolutely loving them recently, I have worn them all the time! 

They cost £3.95 and is a range of 6 colours, I have 3 of them in the shades Coral; which is a nude shade with a peachy undertone, Tea Rose; which is a muted pink but with a blue untdertone and Rich Red which is more of a cherry shade, it has more of a warm undertone to it. 
Although they are Matte lipsticks, they are so buttery and creamy and just glide on your lips! 

I am utterly obsessed with Tea Rose at the moment and have worn it everyday since I got it. 
For the price you can't really go wrong, I would defiantly reccomend you to go and try them 

Until next time,

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Can I just start off by saying I have no clue how to pronounce the name of this, but despite that, I love this product! I am a fan of cleansing waters in general and I used to use the L'Oreal one and I do still love that one, but then this is like double the product for around the same price.

(Excuse that it's got bubbles in, I dropped it)

It has multiple uses, it can be part of your cleansing routine, it can be a make-up remover or cleanser.. The way I use it is I wash my face, cleanse it then use this and then go in with toner. I find this makes your face feel really refreshed and clean. It doesn't sting at all if you decide to use it as a eye make up remover, it's really gentle and soothing; and also doesn't dry out your skin like some do, it's quite hydrating. 

A little bit goes a really long way, you get 400 ml of product which is a lot as you only need a tiny bit (I always use too much). 
It's really cheap, the packaging is pretty and simple, I just love it, it's really become a staple in my skin care routine and would recommend it too everyone  even if you have sensitive skin.

What's In My Bag - Autumn Edition

The bag I have been using recently is from House of Frazer, the brand is called Juno; I'm not sure what the bag is called because I can't find it on the website anymore. I'm not sure if they stock it still, but it's a beautiful maroon/plum shade with black and gold detailing on it. It's the perfect size to fit everything I need in there, and looks absolutely beautiful! 

What's inside my bag:
Cat Purse - for money and cards (Newlook) 
Owl Notebook - to make lists or little notes (Ebay) 
Pink Diary - for reminders and things that need payin ect.. (Ebay)
A Pen - for my diary and notebook 
Faux Leather Gloves - Incase my hands get cold (Primark)
Sunglasses - Incase the sun blinds me while I'm out or driving (Phillipines)
Glasses Case - so the glasses won't get scratched (Primark) 
Two Nail Files - just Incase 
Barclays Pinsentry thing? - I don't use it, I have forgot my code but it is for online banking 
Business Cards - always carry some around with me (Vistaprint) 
Vaseline - my lips always get dry 

This is something different for my blog, I hope you liked it xoxo

Real Techniques Brush Review

I have had these brushes for ages now but never actually thought of doing a review about them. If you already have these brushes then it's pointless you reading this because you already know how amazing they are! I use them everyday without fail because they have become a staple in my routine. I have the Core Collection and the Starter Set. They are all sinthetic in these kits, and if your just starting with make up or your looking for a easy & cheap set of brushes, I would defiantly recommend giving these a try.. You will love them. I got mine for £20.99 I believe from Superdrug. They are incredably cheap for how good they are! The bristles are amazingly soft, wash really easy and make your application so much simpler because they are effortless too use. 

My all time favourite brushes out of these are the Buffing Brush, which I use for my foundation, (I've spoke more about it in my recent foundation post which I will leave right here) and the Delux Crease Brush. Which can be used for so many different things; applying shadow on the lid, in the crease, blending concealer. Just anything really.
