I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the month and I haven’t written my love list! It’s been really tricky to narrow it down this month, and I did toy with making a longer list, but then I thought that kind of goes against the whole idea of having a list of five. Anyway! Here’s the list of things I haven’t been able to live without this month:
1. Boots No7 Airbrush Away Primer*
This is a really fantastic primer that I’ll be reviewing fully soon. I’ve been obsessed with primers for a good few months with varying levels of success, but I’d say this one is the most that lives up to its claims the most. The fact that you don’t really need a moisturiser underneath makes this a great time-saver and definitely a worthy addition to my love list. It costs £19.50 and is available at Boots here.
2. Revlon Lip Butters
Even though I’ve only had these a few days, these had to make the love list as they are just amazing. The colours are bright and flattering and the finish is just beautiful. I’m trying not to obsess too much about them but it’s safe to say that I’m really looking forward to their UK launch on my birthday on 14th March.
3. Savar Advanced Hand Repair*
I receive a lot of lovely goodies to try out and as a consequence, I end up putting my favourites aside to try out other things and eventually forgetting about the things I love to use. This hand cream is so fantastically nourishing – easily the most nourishing out of all my hand creams – and yet it’s absorbed within minutes leaving me with seriously softened hands with no residue. I’m doing my best to focus on my hands and nails more as part of my NY resolution (which is going well so far, I’m pleased to add!) and this cream is definitely back at the top of my list of favourites. It costs £19 and is available at Savar’s online shop here.
4. Bioderma Sensibo Micelle Solution
My skin has been on a major freak-out lately, although it’s definitely much better and I’m starting to reintroduce more products again (more on that in another post) but one thing that has been absolutely amazing is this Micelle Solution. It’s the absolute best eye make-up remover I’ve ever used, it seriously just melts everything away in a couple of swipes and yet is so gentle that you’d never believe how effective it actually is without trying it yourself. The fact that it can be used on the inner eye for removing tightlining just makes this a firm essential in my beauty kit.
5. 17 Peep Show Mascara*
I’ll confess to never really giving 17 make-up the time of day as I have such ridiculously expensive tastes that it didn’t occur to me to try out 17’s mascaras. I got sent a couple of items to try and the stand out product is this mascara. Not only am I in love with the packaging (it’s pink and lacy so inevitably I’m a fan) but it’s actually really effective at delivering full, long yet natural looking lashes. Full review coming soon, but I did use this on my Face of the Day which can be found here (scroll down for the zoom-in on the lashes). Peep Show is available at Boots here for £6.29.
I really want to try the No 7 primer and keep hearing about the 17 peep show mascara as well! I need a high st mascara so will check out your review and might give it a go!
And glad to see another bioderma fan!
I was so surprised by how good the 17 mascara is so it’s definitely worth checking out. I am completely in love with the primer too 🙂 Gotta love Boots! xx
I so cannot wait to try the revlon lip butters x
They are totally worth waiting for 🙂 I can’t wait for them to land so I can buy a few more! xx
I’ve been wanting to try a primer for ages but they’re all too expensive.
Did you see the super scrimpers show on channel 4 last week? They had this beauty money saving bit and one of the tips was that if you want to make you mascara work better you can dust on a bit of talcum powder between layers of mascara and it actually looked like it worked. Obviously though if you have found your holy grail mascara your won’t need to do that but I thought it was a cool tip anyway.
That’s quite a tried and tested trick but it’s a bit time consuming as not only do you need to get the application precise, but you also need to remove any residual powder that goes all over your face. The thing is, I very rarely put more than one coat of mascara on so I need a mascara that’ll make an impact within 1 coat! Thanks for your tip Izzie 🙂 xx
