best beauty products

I have been trying out a tonne of new products recently, most of which I have hardly mentioned on this blog - and then some that I have mentioned too much. Seeing as I haven't done a favourites post in what feels like months I thought I would compile all the products together today.

2016 is officially the year of skincare, I am so into it right now. My skincare routine has come along leaps and bounds since last year and my skin has never looked so good. My favourite discoveries have to be the Kiehls Ultra Facial Moisturiser as it's perfect under makeup, not too thick but still leaves your skin feeling smooth and moisturised. The Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum has been another pretty amazing find. I had been suffering with really dry and uncomfortable dehydrated skin and despite loading on all the moisturising products I could get my hands on this was the thing that made a real difference. It's a light serum that sinks into the skin so goes perfect underneath makeup. Finally in the skincare world I have loved the Instant Detox Mask from Caudalie. This is a clay mask for when your skin is feeling congested and you are suffering from blemishes, just put this mask on and the next day you are going to notice a massive difference. I always suffer from hormonal breakouts around my chin and this mask works so well at sorting everything out and leaving my skin nice and calm.

In the base department I have found my match with the Makeup For Ever Ultra HD Foundation. Although I haven't been using it for that long it is the best foundation I have tried from the year so far by a mile. It's just perfect for every day but can built up or sheered out depending on what you want. I won't go on too much about this product because by now I'm sure you all know my feelings on it.

I am having a thing with copper and rust toned eyeshadows recently, since taking this photo I have added another coppery shadow to my stash - I have a problem. An old favourite is Cut To Fit by MAC, I feel bad mentioning this because it was limited edition but I'm sure you could find it on Ebay if you wanted! This is my favourite eyeshadow because it's more on the natural brown shade rather than being super red toned. Which brings me to the Rimmel Eyeshadow 5 Pan in Brixton Brown. The shadow in the middle is out of this world, like seriously the pigmentation is crazy. It is such a beautiful red, rusty shade that looks great with the MAC eyeshadow. The rest of the shades in the palette are nothing special, the mid toned brown shade is so green toned it doesn't really work for me but I would buy this again just for the red shade. Finally for eyes I have been obsessed with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, it's so great for length and volume - it gives the perfect mixture of the two. I just love the way it makes my lashes look.

My final favourite is the Rimmel Kate Nude Lipstick in 45. I need to pick up some more of these lipsticks because the formula is spot on for me. It's not matte but it's not too slippy on the lips, it just feels so comfortable. This shade is a muted rosy pink colour that is nude and natural but brings life to the face instead of the usual grungey nude colours I usually go for.

What have your current favourites been?
