Top 5: Current Faves

I realise I haven’t done one of these kinda posts in a long time, so I thought I would share my Top 5 current faves with you.  In no particular order:

Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector for Oily/Combination Skin

BB Creams are very hit or miss with me, some are great... others are terrible. But since I’d heard nothing but good things about this, it was time to bite the bullet and get it.
The coverage is that of a sheer foundation (as opposed to a tinted moisturiser!), the formula isn’t oily or shiny and it seems to stay put really well all day. I also love the fact that it has an SPF - this will be perfect for Summer.
The only thing I don’t like about it, is that it emphasises any dry patches I might have on my face, so I usually use a moisturiser underneath it.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in “Crème Brulee”

Honestly, I love these lipsticks. They are so moisturising and are really nicely pigmented. This one in particular is actually a perfect nude for me, and lately I’ve been wearing it almost everyday!
I have two other colours, but am definitely on the lookout for some more.

Lush Dream Cream

I wrote a review here stating how much I absolutely love this body lotion. It has become a regular in my daily routine, and my skin is loving me for it.

MAC Blushcreme in “Ladyblush”

I actually can’t believe that I forgot about this for so long, it is so beautiful! It's actually the perfect natural blush colour. The best thing about this. is the fact that it just glides on and blends out effortlessly, giving you that "naturally-flushed" look. To set it, you can either apply some of your setting powder, or a powder blush overtop. I kid you not, this will actually last all day.
I’ve also actually used it as a lip colour too, and it works great - especially if you throw some gloss on overtop.

MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot – “Vintage Selection”

I have always been a fan of the Paint Pots and this is no exception. It’s described as a subtly, warm-toned, lightened brown with a slightly frosted, champagne sheen. I would definitely agree with that description. It is the perfect all over lid colour, and because they actually dry down and set, they don’t crease! Perfect for those days when you can’t be bothered applying heaps of eye makeup.

Thanks for viewing!
