 The other day I did a post featuring my current favourite luxury favourites, so it’s only fair I return the favour to my current favourite drugstore products!

Real Techniques Oval Shadow Brush
I’ve mentioned this brush many times before, but I use it almost everyday and I still adore it! This brush is part of the Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection, which I believe is the more luxury selection from the brand. The bristles are so soft and this brush is perfect for packing eyeshadow all over the lid and because of the slight point it’s also great at putting colour in the crease. If you’re looking for a new eyeshadow brush this could be the one for you!

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick ‘In Love with Ginger’
Another old favourite of mine that has come back into my everyday makeup routine is this bright orange-red one from Rimmel. I love the formula of the moisture renew lipsticks and my favourite way to wear it is to apply just a little bit and blend it out with my finger. Applying it this way makes it wearable for a day look and I don’t have to worry about it getting all over my face as the day goes on! drugstore Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Foundation This foundation has to be one of the best I’ve tried from the drugstore in a long, long time! This version (with the white lid) is a medium coverage foundation which feels light and moisturising on my skin, but if you’re after something with a bit more coverage Rimmel also have a full coverage version (with a red lid). One of the problems I have with foundations is that they’re not hydrating enough and they accentuate my dry skin patches, which is not hot. Not hot at all. This foundation feels amazing, the finish is beautiful and natural and I love it! Highly recommend it!

Seventeen Instant Glow Tan Cream Bronzer 
Cream bronzers are awesome and I’m so happy drugstore brands like Bourjois and Seventeen have released cream versions because they give such a natural sun-kissed look to the skin. I normally use a brush and apply the bronzer on my cheeks, temples, nose and chin before using my foundation. It makes such a difference to how my makeup looks and it gives me a bit of a tan in all the right places.

L’Oréal Paris Superstar Mascara
The mascara I’m currently using is this dual ended one which has a primer on one end and the mascara on the other. I love mascara primers because I don’t have particularly long or thick lashes so this helps to give me an extra boost. There are also velcro fibres in this mascara to give what L’oreal call ‘superstar’ lashes!

So that was my roundup of drugstore products I’ve been loving lately. Definitely leave me a comment with your current favourite drugstore products because I’m always curious to see what other people are using!

luxury Long time, no blog! Today I thought I’d do a little round-up of some of my current favourite higher end products that I can’t stop using! I’ve fallen head over heels in love with a new skincare brand as well as some new makeup things.

MV Organics Gentle Cream Cleanser
A couple of my (non-blogger) friends told me that this is the only cleanser they’ve used for the past two years which made my jaw hit the floor! They said it completely transformed the way they thought about skincare, so naturally I had to give it a try. It’s a super creamy texture with rose, chamomile, vitamin E and essential oils inside. Removing makeup is a breeze with this when combined with a warm cloth and my skin feels so soft every time I use it. This gentle cleanser is great for people with sensitive skin, irritated skin, spotty skin, red skin and has an insane celebrity cult following! Absolutely love it!

MV Organics Rose Plus Booster
In the evening I’ve been using only this Rose Plus Booster instead of heavy night creams and my skin has been thanking me for it! It smells absolutely heavenly and has does wonders on the redness around my nose and on my chin. I normally get unfortunate hormonal acne, but since using this that has almost disappeared completely. What a miracle product!
luxury Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Radiance Mask
More rose products! I’ve been doing my best to keep my skin nice and hydrated so once or twice a week I’ve been using this mask which is targeted towards dry/dehydrated skin. It’s a creamy texture filled with omegas and of course rosehip oil which my skin loves. I usually let it sit on my skin for 10-15 minutes before removing it with a warm cloth. Instant dose of hydration!

Clinique Cheek Pop Blush
I love, love, love the Clinique Cheek Pop blushes, so I was really excited when I found out they were releasing four new shades! I’ve specifically been obsessed with the shade ‘Pink Pop’ because it’s great for everyday and it’s very brightening. I suggest using a relatively dense brush to apply these to the apples of your cheeks and blend outwards. These are by far one of my favourite blush formulas and the flower design is soooo pretty!
luxuryJo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt
This fragrance probably isn’t the most Springy, but for whatever reason I cannot stop wearing it. Since I have the small purse size I tend to take it everywhere I go and the amount of compliments I’ve had on it lately is ridiculous, so I thought it deserved another mention. It’s probably more of a masculine scent for some, but I love the way the earthy scents are combined. Full review here.

Dior Addict Fluid Stick ‘449 Ciel Rose’
Not sure when I became a nude lip kind of girl, but this fluid stick is all kinds of gorgeous. It’s described as a delicate rosewood, so it’s nude with more of a pink/rose undertone. These are really unique lip products because they have the pigmentation of a lipstick and the shine of a gloss. It’s really lightweight and I almost forget I’m wearing anything on my lips most of the time.

By Terry Ombre Blackstar ‘Misty Rock’
I fell in love with the Ombre Blackstar cream shadows years ago, but I finally decided to add Misty Rock to my collection. What was I waiting for!? This is probably my favourite shade and I’ve been wearing it constantly. They’re so creamy and blendable and this colour is out of this world. Really great on its own or with a bit of matte brown in the crease.

What are your current favourite luxury products?
Let me know if you’d like to see a drugstore version of this post and I will do that!
