Beauty Products Worth The Hype #1

Hi Ladies, I've been a rubbish blogger this month. I just haven't had the inspiration or energy to write anything! I've been meaning to do this post in awhile though so I'm hoping it's gonna be my kick start back into daily blogging! Let's hope :-) 

Here are some of the products I feel are definitely Worth The Hype!

Urban Decay Naked Palette - One of if not 'The' most famous eye shadow palette's ever made. It's talked about on probably every beauty blog ever created at some point and there's a big reason why. It's stunning. Mine is looking a bit worse for wear as I've used it on a daily basis for nearly two years now. It was my first high end make up purchase and it was well worth the money. 

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme Cup - My first MAC purchase and I'm on my second tube of it now. I keep it for special occasions and this is probably the only MAC product I will be re-purchasing. It's the most gorgeous nude pink. I love to wear it with a strong smokey eye on a night out. 

Too Faced Shadow Insurance - When I first got into the whole 'beauty' thing, there was two eye shadow primers that everyone and their mother where talking about on the web. This one and the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I've tried both and I can't really see the difference in either them. They are both amazing at making your eye shadow bullet proof. 

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Liner -  Back about 18 months ago I was obsessed with finding the perfect liner for me and I did. The Bobbi Brown Gel Liners are expensive yet worth it in my eyes. They stay on me right up until I take them off. They go on smooth and dry instantly so I don't get any smudges which is something I hate, especially when you've just taken god knows how long doing your eye shadow!

MAC Studio Finish Concealer - I'd heard a lot about this concealer through the pixiwoo girls on youtube so on my birthday the year before last I picked it up. I love it and It's a great for hiding blemishes and redness. I use something a bit less drying for under my eyes but this is still an amazing concealer. 

St Ives Apricot Scrub -I been using the St Ives Facial scrubs for a long time now. So long in fact that the scent of them is very comforting to me......strange I know. They just make my skin feel super soft and help with fighting blemishes! They are also very inexpensive which is always a plus in my book :-)

Burt's Bees Lip Balm - I got into the Burt's Bees lip balm when I bought their lucky dip bag last year. They are probably one of the only lip balms I find actually work on my dry lips. Not just soothing them at the time they're on my lips but keeping them hydrated for a long time after. My favourite's are the original and the mango. 

The Body Shop Body Butter - I suffer with dry skin all year round so I always make sure I have a Body Shop Body Butter in the house. I love them. Some more than others but all of them do some form of good for my skin. My favourite ones are the Mango, Shea and Strawberry. 

Real Techniques Buffing Brush - My brother bought me the Real Techniques Core Collection for Christmas and I've made good use out of it. The brush I love most is this Buffing Brush. I can understand why so many people love it, it helps me to achieve such a flawless application and as you can see from the dirty brush, I use it very often! 

Collection 2000 Cream Puff - These were very popular not so long ago and I managed to pick up the colour Fairy Cake, it's a gorgeous pinky/coral colour. Stunning in the Spring time when you just want a pop of colour to your look. It has great staying power and I don't find them too drying for my lips! 

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation  - I reviewed this foundation here - where I talk about it in a lot more detail. All I'll say is that I love this stuff, it makes me feel better about myself when I wear it...which is what makeup is for right?!

Leighton Denny Nail Polish - Supermodel - Not long ago I had an addiction to the QVC beauty channel and I often saw this beautiful shade being painted on many nails! When I found out it was being offered for free with a magazine I ran out looking everywhere for it! It's a gorgeous neutral polish that flatters everyone! When I painted my nan's nails with it she loved it so much that she went online and bought it the same night!  

China Glaze - For Audrey - I have a love Audrey Hepburn movies. Sabrina and Roman Holiday are classics. I loved the idea of this being in memory of her and after I saw what the colour looked like I knew I had to have it! It's a stunning and sophisticated Tiffany Blue polish. 

Hope you enjoyed this post and if you read it all then good for you! 
I know it's been a long one ;-)
