Ooo it’s been a fun month on the beauty front. As much as i’m very settled in my day to day makeup and beauty regime, I’m always open to new products that are going to make this mug look better. For me when my makeup is good i feel like i can take on anything, and that my friends is a good feeling. Are you ready for this? There’s quite a lot and i can talk the ears off a donkey when it comes to beauty products;)
So here are the products that are helping to make me feel fabulous lately*
Ok first up are some amazing makeup pieces from a favourite brand of mine (and my step daughters too) W7 Makeup. You guys if you haven’t tried anything from W7 you have to, in-fact go right now and try something. If you like products that are on trend, a bit funky that last well, have great colour pay off and carry a smaller price tag then a bunch of flowers then W7 is what you need.
The majority of my makeup bag is now infact W7.
W7 are a fab British company that are Cruelty free and have many Vegan products in their ranges.
This month i have been besotted with the Strobe Time palette . This quad palette is a mere £7.99 and really brings a beautiful, subtle shimmer to the face. I’ve been using this constantly. I love to use it on my cheekbones above my blusher (more on blush in a moment) on my eyebrow arch and a touch on my cupids bow. Its a super pretty way to bring light to the face.
My next favourite product from them this month is the Matte Me Blush, i have the shades ‘On The Edge’ and ‘Going Out’ and they are both perfect. I don’t like any shimmer in my blush(if i want shimmer i like to add it myself), so as soon as i saw that these were Matt i knew i’d love them.. And of course i do. The colour pay off is great, they are build-able, so subtle or as strong as you require.
Other worthy mentions are the Metal Pout metallic lips , my step daughter is OBSESSED with these, me i love the Tinted Kiss Lip Oils, which smell and taste sublime. The Absolute Lashes is a lovely day wear mascara and finally the bronzer .. oh the bronzer.
At £5.99 the Honolulu Bronzer is amazing, Matt (just how i like my everything it would seem), it is super similar to a very very famous, but far more expensive brand (ahem Hoola cough cough) and bronzes as well (if not better!) I’m so pleased to have this for Spring, it warms the complexion up perfectly without making me look like an oompa loompa. A little goes a long way, so use on a loose large brush and tap off the excess. This little box will last a long time i reckon.

Next up, after many many recommendations I’ve picked up the Pixi Glow Tonic. I have no glow, like literally the dullest skin ever. My pores are enlarged of late(ick..sorry, tmi?) too and i just hate that i don’t have an even skin tone.
The reviews are amazing for this product, I’ve only just started using it, but i love the fresh taught feeling it gives to my skin. Shall keep you posted on long term skin results next month!
Have you ever used it? Would love to know your thoughts?
Another miracle product for me here. Bardou Booster Brow is INSANE. So we all know by now that i’m severely eyebrow challenged yes? Yes. So a product that stays on all day and in to the night is always what i’m after (If i could afford microblading i would, but y’know those damn kids need feeding constantly ?). Bardo Booster brow is like a brow paint. You literally paint it on, i use a small detailing brush instead of the applicator wand as i feel i get a little more control, and then i paint it on and create the shape i want. I love the fullness it brings, the colour it is and the longevity. Highly recommend if you too like full brows but aren’t blessed in the brow department. Well worth the money as a little goes a long way and i reckon it will last a while as the amount is generous in the bottle.
Lastly some final favourites Organic Shop Shampoo and deep conditioner. I’ve noticed my local Tesco is stocking 3 new organic Vegan and cruelty free shampoo ranges. This is the first one i’ve tried as its really purse friendly (£2.50each). Great to see new cruelty free and vegan brands coming in to the mainstream, making it much easy to shop.
Trusty old Batiste, but new with conditioner added, I’m all up for added condition as my hairs a little dry right now from all the dying, which is why I’ve also been using Lee Stafford Argan Oil , which i also found out is Vegan and Cruelty free, which makes me super happy.
And lastly Forever Living Aloe eye cream. Super soothing as i’ve had really sore eyes lately. I put this on a couple of times a day as its cooling and feels beautiful on my bags 😉
What beauty products have you been loving this past month?
Any great recommendations to share?
* Its good to note that feeling fabulous without products is also highly recommended.
