The Top Ten Product Tag

Hey lovelies;

I hope that you're all doing well?! 

I would like to do a big shout out to the amazing Jordan, who very kindly tagged me to do this post, if you are yet to check her space out, go do it now.. well after you've had a good looksie through my top ten products of the moment anyway :) hehe...

Side note, I forgot to include the mascara into the photo above, I hope you don't mind :(

Lets get right into it.
I hope that you enjoy;

- Foundation

If you've been following me for a while, you'll know just how much I love the Vichy Dermablend Corrective Fluid Foundation. I have oily skin, and this seems to be the only stuff which will stay on all day with out the dreaded slipping around motion that other foundations seem to enjoy doing so much on my skin, I don't even have use a primer with it - result! Although I have oily skin, I don't like that matte look, so this stuff is perfect, as well as staying in tact all day, it also gives your skin such a lovely healthy glow. you can also build the coverage up pretty dang high, or you can keep it light for a 'I want my natural skin to shine through today' look.


Because of the above foundation being so great coverage wise, I find myself very rarely needing a high coverage concealer on top, so most mornings I will find myself reaching for the Soap and Glory Trick and Treatment Dark Circle Concealer. I wouldn't say for you to get this concealer for the purpose of covering dark circles, but more so for brightening the under eye area, I think that it does a brilliant job of this, so much so that I will normally also dab a bit onto the inner corners of my eyes, the bridge of my nose and my chin.

- Setting Powder

 Now, I haven't owned this Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder for too long, but I love it! I know it probably looks a bit daunting due to its white colouring, but no matter what you're skin tone, this powder will just mimck the shade of your foundation. Its so finely milled that it will never leave your skin looking cakey, or heavy, but instead natural - I can never really tell that I have this stuff over top of my foundation, it just feels so light, leaving the skin feeling soft, and definitely lengthens the amount of time which your foundation will last.

-Bronze and Highlight

I wont say too much about the Urban Decay Flushed Palette, as I have done a full review which you can view here, where I included quite a bit more information. You can see that I've started to hit pan in the top left hand corner, and let me tell you, it was such a sad moment when I realised! I love this bronze and highlight a lot, I just feel as though it leaves my skin looking so fresh and glow-y.

- Blush

As much as I love the blush from the above Flushed Palette, now that its getting a bit cooler and darker outside, I seem to have taken a step back from it, and instead, re-kindled the love for my MAC Powder Blush in the shade Melba. You want to be so, so, so, light handed with these blushes, you'd be surprised at just how pigmented they are, I'd say that I've owned this shade around 3 years now, and I'm still yet to hit pan. It gives a matte finish, but is definitely a shade that I feel gives you that natural I've been outside loving life sorta', well.. flush.

- Brows

I've owned this Sleek Brow Kit in the shade Light, for I'd say a good few months now, and I think you can see just how well loved it is..to be honest I think it needs a clean very soon haha. I have very sparse, very blonde, hardly there, need a magnifying glass to see kinda brows, and this stuff works great, I just need to get myself a clear mascara or something to make it last a little longer, as half way through the day I always notice one or two small bare patches where it has escaped, any recommendations would be great - just saying :D

- Shadow

You don't need to tell me, I know that I'm cheating on this category with four shadows *slaps wrists*, but look at how beautiful these MAC Shadows are, how could I possibly leave any out?! The shades from left to right are Woodwinked, Sumptuous Olive, Charcoal Brown and Twinks - These colours are perfect for the Autumn/Winter months. Ahhhhhhh. Can you tell that I love them? I will normally use one of those shimmer shades on the lid, with a tiny bit of that matte Charcoal brown in the crease/outer corner. It goes amazing with each one of them.

- Mascara

This False Lash Telescopic Mascara is great for day-to-day use, it gives amazing definition, volume, and length, the works! I also find that the wand makes it very easy to apply onto the lashes, I never get those dreaded massive globs of product either on my lid nor under my bottom lashes when I use this, comon' we all know the sort that I'm chatting about! 


If you're a regular to these parts, then I think you probably knew what my choice of lipstick would be before you even saw this far down the page, MAC Vegas Volt. This stuff is just incredible, to the point where I have spoken about it countless times on this space, both here and here. Its so creamy, and soft, always leaving the lips looking smooth and just plain delicious!
