I can’t really believe that it’s been a year since the last round up, but here we are! If you want to see what made it into 2017’s favourites post you can read it HERE (spoiler, there may be some repeats as we all know I’m a creature of habit!) But let’s crack on with my 2018 favourites!
Boots and Superdrug are my happy places and I could spend hours wandering around them, swatching products, seeing what’s new, phone in hand to read reviews as I go. Although I’m just as much of a sucker for the expensive, luxury products as the next person, there is a certain giddy excitement when I find some highstreet gems. So this blog post is dedicated to the products I use a lot that can be picked up for an affordable price on the highstreet.
I really enjoyed pulling together this current favourites post: it’s a mix of Christmas gifts, some old favourites and some lifestyle bits too. I would love to hear what you’d say are your current favourites at the moment – I’m so nosey I love checking out your recommendations – so don’t forget to leave a comment with your ideas for me!
I’ve really missed doing monthly favourites, but I’m glad I waited until I had a post where the products really got me excited. This one has a good mix of make up and lifestyle, I really hope you enjoy my April 16 monthly favourites!
Soap and Glory Glow All Out
I have been looking for a highlighter powder for a while but none had caught my eye. Then I saw this gorgeous beast, Soap and Glory Glow All Out, in Boots.
Described as ‘luminizing radiance face powder’, this is a light rose pink colour with a lovely golden shimmer. It also comes in a really cute compact that you wouldn’t feel embarrassed getting out in public to touch up your make up.
The photos show the powder applied after foundation and before blusher. My rosacea was playing up a bit today so I took the second to last photo once it had calmed down to show you the true colour. I feel like this makes me skin glow without looking over the top – no one wants to look like a disco ball at work!
I got this in Boots for £11 which is a bargain as I think it will last ages – you can buy it HERE.
