Mid Year Beauty Favourites

Today I wanted to share some of my favourite beauty products of the year so far. Most of them are new discoveries but some are things I've had for quite a while. Also, I know we're technically past mid year but July still counts, right?
Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette - £17.50
I love everything about this palette from the layout to the colour selection and although I'm more of a cream eyeshadow fan nowadays, this is what I reach for when I want to do a nice, warm, fudgy eye. Great, now I want something sweet...

Too Faced Hangover Face Primer - £27
I have so many primers in my stash but this is one of the only ones that I still love and use. It does such a good job at priming my face without making it feel dry or silicone-y. It's perfect for all skin types and it smells like coconuts. How could you not love it? 

Dames & Dimes Chocolate Orange Cleansing Balm - £13.95
This is one of my favourite finds of the year so far. I've rambled on about this multiple times but I can't help it, it's just so good! I love that it's 100% natural and the fact that it smells like a Terry's Chocolate Orange. If you like rich cleansing balms that are full of nourishing oils, please check this out! 

Marc Jacobs Air Blush Kink & Kisses - £28
I really want to pick up some more of these blushers because the formula is just so beautiful. It has amazing pigmentation and it gives the cheeks such a gorgeous flush. I have the shade Kink & Kisses which is a gorgeous, peachy-pink. I can't wait to try out more from the Marc Jacobs range. 

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick Alabaster - £31
Foundation sticks aren't something I ever really got into but for some reason, I was really drawn to this when I visited my local Bobbi Brown store. Even though I don't use it very often, it's actually one of my favourite base products in my collection. I love that you can create different finishes with a foundation stick depending on what other products you use. It is fairly dry in texture so you do need to make sure your skin is well moisturised before hand. I really want to try more from BB so please leave your recommendations below!

Pure Potions Skin Salvation Moisturising Ointment - £7.99
This product has worked wonders for my eczema and although it hasn't completely gone (because of my scratching), this always makes a difference when I use it. I can't recommend this enough!

Happy Place Cosmetics Cookie Dough Face Scrub - £14
If you've followed my blog for a while you'll know that I absolutely adore this product. It smells amazing, gets rid of all my dry skin and makes my face feel super smooth and moisturised. This might possibly be my favourite, favourite of them all!

L'Oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara £7.99
I'm not going to go on about this because I've mentioned it quite a lot recently but I will just say that I absolutely love this mascara and I think everyone should try it. It's one of the only mascaras that actually makes my lashes look thick and voluminous. I can't recommend it enough!

Alpha H Liquid Gold - £33.50
This is such a cult product and for good reason! The Glycolic Acid works to remove dead skin cells, gradually reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and gives the skin a much smoother texture. It is fairly strong (for me, anyway), so I would only use it nightly, twice a week but if you have a mature skin you could definitely bump it up to 3/4 times a week. I just pour a bit on to a cotton pad and swipe it all over the face and neck after cleansing, avoiding the eyes and lips. Follow with SPF the next morning and you're good to go!


Are any of these your favourites?

  2. We certainly share a lot of favourites! I adore that same MJ blush and Bobbi Brown stick foundation. I am curious about Too Faced primer, I have dry skin, so was not sure whether it would feel hydrating enough etc. Although the sound of coconuts is divine! xx

    1. I would say it's good for an average dry skin. If you're skin is really dry then it might not be enough. It comes in a travel size so maybe you can try it and see what you think? It does smell amazing! xx

  3. I prefer Marc Jacobs Coconut Face primer than Too Faced Hangover, my skin seems to look better. And I am with you on Marc Jacobs blushers! I want them all to be honest but my husband would probably kick my arse if I buy more. LOL!

  7. I finally worked out how to get my google account to switch to this one so I can comment! Yass! My computer is a pain in the bum. I am going to order the hair treatment/oil simply because it smells like pina colada to be honest, can't get enough of that scent!
