It's a start of a new feature on the blog today (and replaces monthly favourites) - what am I currently loving and are obsessed with. Towards the end of monthly favourites, I was finding it harder to pick products as to what I'd been enjoying throughout the month, instead of what products I was loving at that moment. So first up is the eyeshadow palette of dreams Lorac Pro Palette which me bitch Michelle brought me back from Miami back in September. I know there is a lot of hype around this palette (and brand) and does it live up to it? HELL YES!! Seriously pigmented, easily blendable - it's love. At the moment I can't get enough of the shade taupe and I'm already looking like I'm going to be hitting pan soon. Any dupe recommendations let me know.
I haven't been reaching for foundations at all this year and the liquid base product which I've been wearing is Diorskin Nude BB Creme (shade 002). I think this provides slightly more coverage than other BB creams which I have tried, however when applied with a beauty blender, my skin looks flawless. The shade suits my skin more so when I'm tanned, however I am going to buy a lighter shade as I love it that much. It is pricey, however it's worth every penny. Keeping on the base theme, I've been reaching more for my Nars Creamy Concealer in Vanilla which has been neglected lately. Hands down one of the best concealers I have tried, however it doesn't been Collection's lasting perfection concealer which is my holy grail.
Mac's Yash Lipstick is my first brown toned nude lipstick which I own and at first I regretted buying this. However with my barely there lipliner all over the lip and then patting this down once applied, this looks like your lips but better. I'll always go for Mac lipsticks as you can't beat the colour pay off and the formula - love. Matrix Miracle Treat 12 deserves a post all to itself, initially introduced to me by my hairdresser, this magic spray hydrates and detangles my hair before drying. Honestly it's been a game changer. You can pick this up in TK Maxx for £5 (and it smells beaut).
Even though I have a box (yes a large box) full of body lotions, I've been using Clarins Moisture Rich Body Lotion since the start of the year and now I want to buy a full size tube of this. Apart from needing to use up other items, I can't part with £30 (no typo) on a body lotion. This was a deluxe sample with a purchase, and this will be the only way I'll be getting this in future. Unlike my other body lotions this has a very mild scent which literally vanishes as soon as you apply it to the skin. Bumps on my arms have gone and I actually have smooth skin from this, however as much as I need this, I really can't part with the money.
Finally after a lot of hype I finally gave in to Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. I can't sleep in this, but find that if I'm having a lazy day in the house, I'll put a thick layer on my skin and then leave it on for a few hours before rinsing. I wouldn't say that my skin is particularly dry, however my skin literally drinks this up and after ten minutes you can't even tell I've had this on my skin. Normally I use this once a week or even a fortnight and it does help with my skin. What products have you been obsessed with lately? Let me know.
