products i'm loving

22/06/2013

i've never done a post like this before and it might just be a one off but i just fancied talking about certain products i've been loving at the moment. this ranges from just a week ago to two/three months ago. if i hadn't included my yankee candle i'd have probably have named it my summer essentials as it pretty much is everything i'll love using over the summer. please let me know what products you're loving this summer.

xen-tan morrocan tan - i cannot get enough of the stuff, first introduced to me when i received a sample size in my north meet up goodies after using it i can't imagine ever using another fake tan! my first bottle lasted my seven weeks or in other words seven applications as it lasts so well for a whole week. when applied i look so naturally dark, it doesn't smell and when washing it off it fades so evenly. can't recommend it enough, especially as i've just bought 3 bottles just the other day as it was on offer.

marc jacobs daisy perfume (gift) - although i own quite a few perfumes now, daisy for me has to be my all time favourite summer scent. whenever i have a bottle i get far too excited with it and use it up in just two to three months but as i received the much larger bottle this time for birthday i have vowed to make it last! if not, at least i can always pick up another bottle in the duty free if i go away this year.

lipstick queen in saint peachy nude* - i've already did a review on my lipstick queen lipstick a while ago which you can read here, but i will say it's my favourite nude lipstick and it's what i wear in almost all my outfit posts.

mac mineralize skin finish in medium plus - i'll be honest when i bought this powder for the first time last year after lily from llymlrs recommended it i just couldn't understand why everyone was raving about it. it ended up in my extra make up storage collecting dust until earlier this year i needed a powder for a night out. i don't know whether it was because previously i wasn't applying it with the real techniques powder brush like i do now, or my skin has just changed but now i absolutely love how it looks. it's so light on the skin but still provides great coverage.

yankee candle in cinnamon stick (gift) - not really much to say except cinnamon is my all time favourite scent and liam got me this for my birthday to replace my other cinnamon i got for christmas. love.

benefit watt's up highlighter - i didn't take another photo swatching benefit watts up as i did include a photo of it not that long ago here. it's the perfect shade of pearlescent for me as it's not too pink like highbeam as i'm more yellow toned. i have been using it on a daily basis and it just helps define my face so well.

maybelline color show nail polish in blood orange - finally, what kind of girl would i be if i didn't talk about a nail polish? when the sun comes out so does the bright colours, and for me this year i'm all about orange. it just looks so lovely on and brightens up any outfit.

  4. Are you wearing the Moroccan tan in this post? Cause you're a lovely natural colour. I prefer tans with olive undertones too. I actually have this tan but I keep wussing out and choosing a paler colour Incase I end up orangey!
