One of best things about the beauty community is that everyone reviews and shares their favourite products so its a great way of discovering new things to buy. I've also been lucky enough to be sent various make up to try out and as a result I've discovered some great products that I would never have tried otherwise.
My favourite discovery has to be highlighters. I always thought shimmery face products would make me look like a disco ball, but thanks to blogging I've realised that its a great way of adding a radiant and healthy glow to the cheeks. I'm currently loving Sleek contour kit (a finely milled powder) and Eyeko 3 in 1 cream in extra glow (a thick cream that can also be used as a moisturizer).
Barry M and Eyeko nail varnishes
Both brands retail for under a fiver and have a good range of colours to choose from. The nail varnishes are generally pigmented enough so you only need one coat, they dry quickly and can remain chip free for a few days, even without a top coat.
ELF studio brushes
When I posted about make up brushes, I had so many recommendations for this range and I'm really glad I brought myself a few to try out. Despite retailing at only £3.50 they look very sleek and expensive and they work just as well as the more high end ones. The bristles are densly packed yet super soft, wash well without shedding and dry very quickly.
Maybelline mousse blush in peach satin
I brought this from Pyxiee's blogsale and it quickly became my favourite blusher. Its a gorgeous peachy pink colour thats perfect for everyday wear, is easy to apply and has small shimmer particles to help highlight the cheeks.
This was one of the most raved about brands last year and I can definitely see why. They do a great range of products using mostly natural ingredients. All their products smell amazing and most do exactly what they claim to. I highly recommend their face masks, seanik shampoo bar and bubble bars.
Have you tried any of the above? What products have you discovered from blogging?
