No 7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Bare | Benefit Coralista | No7 Vital Enlightening Highlighter Powder

John Frieda Full Repair Styling Spray* – this spray does a bit of everything. It detangles, refreshes and softens my hair before blowdrying. It also has heat protectant which is a bonus! I really recommend this, it makes drying so much faster for me!

No 7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Bare – this is one of my favourite lipsticks, it’s a matte brown colour. I wear it a lot in outfit pictures when I want a simple look. It’s stronger than a nude but softer than a bright!

Benefit Coralista – I never got the hype over Coralista. When I finally got it in this powder pop trio I was slightly disappointed. It had more highlight than colour and I rarely used it. But this year I just fell in love with it. I loved the highlighting aspect and the soft colour it gives me. I usually skip highlighter with this because otherwise I stray a bit too close to “glitterball” for my liking but I’m glad I have this!

Daisy Eau So Fresh – I got this via Buyapowa for an amazing price of Β£35. It’s 75ml so that’s a great price and I love the scent. It’s fresh, non-offensive and simple; perfect for everyday! I think it’s a very universal perfume as people rarely dislike it.

Real Techniques Blush Brush – I will definitely be buying more of the real techniques brushes because this brush is the best one I own. It’s unbelievably soft, amazing value for money and perfect for blush or bronzer. It blends beautifully and is so easy to use. I definitely recommend this!

No 7 Vital Enlightening Highlighter Powder – When I swatched this I thought I’d be pretty “meh” as I never fall for powder highlighters but this was so beautiful blended on the skin. It’s a very unique colour, most highlighters are either cool toned or warm toned but this one is somehow both. It has gold and peach reflects but it also has a slight pink shimmer running through. It blends SO seamlessly, you can apply it with your fingers if you wanted! I’m so impressed with this product, I swear it was more expensive but it says Β£6.50 on boots which is a great price! My only annoyance is how soft it is as mine broke a bit and now it’s crumbling πŸ™

Rock N’ Rose Isis Triple Stud Ring* – I talked about this in my outfit post, it’s such a unique ring. I didn’t think I’d love it this much but I do! It’s quite pricey for a small ring but it’s definitely an eye-catching piece!
