Beauty Favourites #1

Well now, isn't this something different. I rarely put up a post on beauty stuff mainly because I am more of a fashion buff than a beauty buff. However, there have been a few things that I've been loving lately and I wanted to share.

1. Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil
Rosehip oil has been a permanent fixture in my skincare routine since last year and I don't think I will ever part with it. It helps with my dry patches and reduces the time it takes for my blemishes to fade. In spring/summer, I would apply this oil at night. In autumn/winter though, I go through the bottle like nobody's business.

2. The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream
I've only been using this eye cream for a month and I am already in love with it. The previous eye cream I used tend to slip and slide when I put it on. However, this one just instantly absorbs into my skin and helps keep away the dry patch on my eyelid (which I sometimes get).

3. NYX Blush in Mocha
I have no idea where NYX came up with the name Mocha because this looks a whole lot like pink to me. This pink may look slightly daunting but when applied it gives a soft, fresh look.

4. The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer
I was not particularly fond of this bronzer before. I felt that it did not look right on my skin tone. However, since it is the colder months, maybe my skin has lightened a bit which might just be the difference. I use it for contouring and I love how it blends well and gives a subtle shadow to my imaginary cheekbones.

5. Lancome Lip Lover in Lip Lover
I love seeing other Youtubers rock the bold matte lips. However, after much experimenting, I still just can't seem to pull it off. My lips are just not made for matte stuff. That is why I have been reaching for this baby instead. The colour is absolutely beautiful. It is just the right colour of pink. Not too bright and not too sheer. This colour would work well in spring/summer but what the heck, I'm still gonna wear it for winter :p.

6. NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramisu
This is another lippy favourite. While I prefer the formula of the Lancome Lip Lover, this one I love because of its colour. Not saying that the formula is bad, its ok. I just prefer the Lancome better. The colour, on the other hand, is gorgeous. When I want a nude lippy, I whip this out.

7. Clean Fragrance in Warm Cotton
I've been switching up between 2 fragrances. I love this Clean Fragrance because its in roller ball form. Easy to chuck in my handbag and the scent literally smells like laundry detergent. Fresh, clean and crisp. My husband has even commented on this when I wore it.

8. The Body Shop Perfume Oil in Atlas Mountain Rose
If I'm not wearing Clean, then I would probably be dabbing on this Body Shop Perfume Oil. Again, its small enough to bring in my handbag and the scent is heavenly. I'm not sure if a rose scent can even small bad.

Those are some of my beauty favourites lately. Have you ever tried any of the products mentioned?
