It feels like an eternity since I last posted about my current favourites, but as we’re already a quarter of the way through 2016 I thought it was high time I shared some of the gems I can’t get enough of at the moment.
Benefit Watt’s Up Highlighter – £24.50
This is without a doubt my favourite highlighter ever. I can’t believe I haven’t tried it sooner, as it’s one of the prettiest, most natural looking highlighters I’ve ever used. For years I’ve been using powder highlighters (MAC’s Soft & Gentle in particular) which has worked for me, but I never realised what I was missing out on when it comes to using cream highlighters. They look far more natural, last an incredible amount of time and just help the face look more radiant, but in a ‘no makeup’ kind of way. This is a beautiful champagne shade that blends really easily and one I will continue to use for a very long time.
Milkshake Integrity Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner* – £6.99 each
I’ve been a fan of Milkshake products for some time, so was delighted to hear they had launched a range of mini sized products for 2016. As I’m a fairly frequent traveller (both with work and in my personal life) I always find it handy to have travel sized products that are big enough to last more than 2 days but small enough not to take up unnecessary amounts of room in my case. Milkshake products always smell amazing, and the Integrity Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner are no different. This is a nourishing duo for all hair types, it has a salt free and sulphate free formula which helps to condition and moisturise the hair, tame frizz and leave hair feeling soft and radiant.
Kikki K Copper Sellotape Dispenser – £20
Considering my love of both copper and stationery, it was no surprise that I fell head over heels for this sellotape dispenser when I was last in Kikki K. It’s perfect for adding a touch of style to my desk, and blends into the other copper touches I have in my room beautifully. It costs £20 which is pricey for a tape dispenser, but as it feels weighty, well made and ultimately looks a dream it’s something I was willing to justify.
Zoeva Rose Golden Vol. 2 Powder Brush* – £16
I’ve already written a full post on this Zoeva Powder Brush as I loved it so much but this really has been one of my favourite makeup brushes to use over the last few months. It’s so soft and blends product into my skin beautifully. If that wasn’t enough it’s also a joy to use every day with it’s pale pink handle and rose gold accents. If you haven’t tried Zoeva brushes before I highly recommend you do.
Bath & Body Work’s ‘Fresh Sparkling Snow’ Hand Cream – $5
Whilst the name of this hand cream doesn’t necessarily tally up with March weather (although it’s still very cold) I’ve been loving this hand cream recently. It’s got a really rich, creamy texture that blends into the hands well without leaving them sticky. In all honesty it’s not really a winter scent, it just smells really gorgeous so I love having this on my desk at home to keep my hands soft and smelling great as I work.
Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Cologne – £85
This is an old favourite of mine, but as I received this cologne from my boyfriend on Valentine’s Day it’s naturally the one I’m reaching for most at the moment. It’s got such a gorgeous, distinct fragrance which is immediately recognisable on anyone who wears it. I love how rich the scent is without being over powering, but most of all how long it lasts on me during the day.
Accessorize Lingerie* – Bra £14, Knickers £7
I’m definitely a bralet girl – I much prefer them to underwired bras, and as I don’t have the biggest bust in the world (a B-C cup) I find they support me perfectly well. The lovely ladies at Accessorize recently let me choose a set to wear and I picked this beautiful two tone soft lace bra and knickers. This is such a gorgeous set, unlike any others I own. The set is adorned with scallop-edge trim and has a pretty satin bow on the front. It’s incredibly comfortable, and the pale blue shade is so pretty and perfect for spring.
