I was actually flabbergasted when I realised my last favourites post was almost a year ago. There have been plenty of products I’ve enjoyed so I can only put this down to laziness. Soz! Anyway I’ve got all of my favourites on my face for demonstrative purposes above.
Anastasia Beverley Hills DipBrow Pomade, Dark Brown, £15.00
Rimmel Glam’Eyes Liquid Eyeliner, Black, £3.99
I’ve probably gone through about 20 of these in my life but stopped in favour of pen liners or gel liners. After about a two year hiatus, I’ve come crawling back to Glam’Eyes. Yes, it’s very wet, messy and doesn’t survive more than a drop of rain, which may seem pointless for anyone in a maritime climate, but for precision and smoothness, it can’t be beaten. Perfect for flicks.
L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil Oil-in-Cream, Dry Rough Hair, £6.99
You know when you’ve been out in the rain, and your hair has gone all frizzy and you don’t have time to wash it so you attempt to ‘just run the straighteners through it’ and it ends up inexplicably looking greasy and dry at the same time? Well, this stuff is the secret ingredient – it turns weather-beaten hair into a soft and shiny mane. Plus it can be used as a leave in conditioner for wet hair or as a pre-shampoo mask.
The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer, £17.50
I’m sure I don’t have to go on about this. Stunning, stunning, stunning champagne highlighter with no obnoxious glitter.
Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil, Nude Perfection, £4.99
As far as matte lip products go, these pencils are some of the cheapest, least drying and easiest to wear I’ve tried. Nude Perfection is literally, the perfect nude and has been my go-to lip almost every day. Thinking about it, I think this is the only lipstick that I’ve ever finished and repurchased.
