Well you guys know my favourite blog posts to write are the ones about my current favourite things. I can never wait till the end of the month. If I like something I like to tell you straight away and this month is no different. This month I have not been spending as much as I usually do on cosmetics ( I'm trying to save)  but what I have bought are completely must have products.. so sit back grab a cuppa and a Jaffa cake and read on about products you definitely need in your life.

Firstly I have bought a new mascara ( which I didn't need but bought anyway) it's the  MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL LUSCIOUS with oil blend. Now this is a new discovery by me this month. I completely love the original formula and wanted to try this one. I'm happy to report I love it. I wasn't sure if I would after hearing so many bad reports about it not being as good as the original but it is. I find with many Maybelline mascaras they get better with age and on the first day I used it I wasn't very keen and thought the formula was too wet but after a week of the product been opened i think it must have dried up a little and it's great and definitely not clumpy. If your after a new mascara it's definitely worth a try and give it time and don't judge it on the first time like I did.

Another Maybelline product I have been loving is the MAYBELLINE INSTANT ANTI-AGE THE ERASER EYE PERFECT AND COVER CONCEALER in the shade NUDE. This concealer contains Goji Berry and Haloxyl and is described as a micro correcting eye concealer.  Now this product has completely saved my life. I do tend to suffer with dark circles and high pigmented age spots caused by sun damage and I can't praise this enough for covering them. It doesn't settle into wrinkles (like I find the collection concealer does sometimes) and even though the packaging says Anti Age Eraser Eye I use it on other places apart from the eyes infact anywhere that needs concealer. It sets well with pressed powder and even though it's £8.99 it's completely worth the money and a little can certainly go a long way.
There is an eye brighter that has a more pink tone that I am keen to try. It was originally only available on the USA but now we can get it over in the UK so expect to see that in a later post.

Last but definitely not least was £1 (you know how I love my £1 makeup).
It's the POUNLAND MAKEUP GALLERY GOOD TO GLOW HIGHLIGHTING POWDER in the shade 1. PEARL SHIMMER. I swatched this on my hand at first and couldn't believe how nice this was for the money. It sits on the skin very well and lasts just as long as a product 10 times the price.
The shade is perfect for my skin tone but would be very interested to see if Poundland do any other highlighting powders in different shades as my local one only had one shade available. The colour is very subtle and doesn't show up much on my swatch but gives just enough colour to highlight. I have seen other bloggers rating this so please don't just take my word for it and give it a try.

If you have tried any of these products, please leave me a comment and let me know you're favourite.
Happy Shopping
