The Top 5 Products I'm Currently Reaching For...

I rarely talk about the products I reach for unless its in a favourites post, however now summer is on its way out, I've had a lil' change up and there's a few new and old(ish) products currently rocking my world.

As someone who suffers with static hair, I'm constantly on the lookout for serums and creams that will tame my frizz. One of the pluses of blogging is getting introduced to new brands. I wasn't familiar with Leonor Greyl until using this product but I'm pleasantly surprised. This serum detangles and nourishes hair without feeling heavy or sticky. You can use it on both dry and damp hair - I like to use it both ways for extra conditioning. It helps to tame my hair and make it look much sleeker than normal. 

I've mentioned these shadow pencils before but they really are awesome to use if you're in a rush. I love the shade 'cool mink', which is a cool toned taupe. Shadow pencils are really easy to use as you can just swipe them over the lid in one go, blend out a little and your all good. These are £8 each but often on offer!I love that it has a little built in sharpener at the bottom so keeping them pointed for liner isn't a problem.

Ahh I do enjoy a lipgloss every now and then and this one is a real good 'un!It doesn't feel sticky and you only need one swipe of the wand to get smooth, even colour. The smell and taste isn't all that but for a drugstore gloss, these are a great, comfortable lip product.

If you're looking for a cheaper alternative to MAC cranberry then this is the one. NYX single shadows are under £5 and rust is pigmented, soft and smooth. I like to wear this layered over a black liner or in the inner corners of my eye to give it a little edge. 

Being a lip balm fanatic, the lanolips banana balm is totally my thing. Unlike other balms, this is a bit more unique in that its a 3 in 1 lipbalm with an iridescent finish. I'm not a massive fan of banana but luckily this only has a slight banana scent to it. It's a lot more nourishing than your standard lipbalm, meaning my lips are much smoother and softer after use. I'm sure I'll be relying on it a lot this autumn and winter.

Have you tried any of these products?

  2. Do you find that the maybelline elixir lipgloss accentuates dry lips ? I've only tried it once at a friend's but that's the impression I was left with (But I had really dry lips at the time)
