Current Top 5 Products

Hey Lovelies!

It's looking like the virus is finally gone, but I still daren't log in to anything on my computer - the combination of that and the fact that I look utterly rough as a result of the fluyness means that there's not going to be any FOTDs for a little while. I thought that instead I'd share my current Top 5 Products :) In no particular order....

1. Bourjois Ultra Black Volume Glamour Mascara
I love love love this mascara! It gives me amazing volume, length and such a deep black colour with no clumps and no flaking. It's such a simple mascara in some ways and really cheap (it's normally on offer for about £5.99 in Boots or Superdrug). I've tried many different mascaras, but I just keep coming back to this!

2. Dove Beauty Body Wash Fresh Cucumber Green Tea 

I'm a sucker for anything green tea and fresh and this really hits the button. It's a really luxurious feeling shower gel and the smell stays with you for ages. Nice and moisturising too!

3.bareMinerals Foundation in Medium Beige
I got a sample of this in with my Urban Decay Alice Palette and a)it came with a super cute mini Kabuki and b)it was a perfect match! I'm really loving this at the moment and seriously considering buying a full size version, although it's soooooo expensive! :( I wear it over my normal moisturiser mixed with a little of the Dark Yellow Lush Colour Supplement. It gives such great coverage but doesn't really look like you're wearing much make up at all!

3. Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
If you don't own this already, buy it! It's not really an eyeshadow primer.... it's more like magic glue to make your eyeshadow even more sparkly and glittery and to increase its staying power. It really intensifies the colour of your eyeshadow and gives them extra pop! You need such a tiny amount that this tube would last you forever (or close enough). Buy it.

5.Boots 17 Solo Eyeshadow in Ivory Coast
I bought this ages ago... I don't really know why to be honest, it's such a plain, boring colour. However, I've been using this colour pretty much all the time recently. I love to sweep it all over my lid as a second primer (over UDPP) - it evens out the pigmentation on my eyelids (I have quite darkly pigmented lids), works as a good undereye concealer and just generally makes things nice. It's a great colour to just pop on alone for a quick and very natural look or works nicely with a whole range of colours. It's also incredibly velvety and smooth and one of the only mattes that I own and love.

What are your current top 5?
