2015 Favourites

I’ve tried and tested a lot of different products throughout the past year and thought I would share my favourites with you!

Benetint

This rose coloured lip and cheek tint blends seamlessly and lasts all day long. It’s a bit pricey at £25 but totally worth it!

Topshop lipstick in ‘Inhibition’

DSC00120

This lipstick is a gorgeous dark berry colour which is perfect for Christmas parties! It goes on smoothly and leaves an incredibly pigmented matte finish which lasts for hours – even after eating!

Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Mud Pac

These sachets only cost £1 or less and are great for pampering yourself. This one is for combination/oily skin as it cleanses pores but there are lots of different ones to suit your skins needs.

Prada Candy perfume

This has been my go-to perfume this year. It is described as a ‘unique signature in keeping with the traditions of High Perfumery, combining Laotian benzoin, a synthetic Caramel accord and a more neutral cocktail of musk.’

Benefit Gimme Brow

DSC00150

This product leaves my brows looking even and defined yet still natural. It retails at around £18, however i’ve used this one everyday for 8 months and it’s only starting to run out now!

NYX soft matte lip cream

DSC00161

These lip creams glide on smoothly and then don’t budge! They’re also extremely buildable and can be put on lightly for everyday and layered up for a dark, bold look. I bought this one from Feelunique.com as they aren’t available in the UK yet.

Real Techniques brushes

These brushes blend my makeup flawlessly and are well priced at around £8 each.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo

DSC00171 DSC00178

This cream eye shadow is great on its own or as a base as it doesn’t crease and conceals any discolouration on the lids. It retails for around £5.

Winter Fashion Favourites

All of the styles I love this winter!

Camel Coat

I absolutely love this coat from Topshop but it never seems to be available in my size!

It retails for around £65

Knee length boots

These suede boots from River Island would look great with dresses and skirts!

They retail at £100 but there are a lot of cheaper alternatives available.

Lace Up Heels

These shoes are perfect for any parties throughout the festive season!

These particular ones from H&M retail at £29.99

Embellished Beanies

I love wearing hats like this!

The one I have (similar to the black one above) was from Primark for £4!

Jumper Dresses

Jumper dresses and woolly tights are perfect on cold winter days! So cosy and chic.

Top 10 Items For Autumn

Autumn is fast approaching so I thought I would share with you my top 10 products and clothing items to get me through the cooler months.

#1 – My purple crushed velvet Dr Marten boots

Dr martin 6

I got these gorgeous shoes for my birthday in February and absolutely love them. They’re extremely comfortable and required no breaking in what so ever.

#2 – My Leather Jacket

DSC_0099

I absolutely love this coat for the autumn/winter months as it is extremely warm yet still flattering.

#3 – My Mac

DSC_0096

This coat looks amazing on those rainy fall days with leather boots and a scarf.

#4 – Jumper Dresses

I love wearing jumper dresses in Autumn with tights and boots for a cozy, comfortable outfit.

#5 – Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Radiant Vitalizing Body Gel Oil

Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Radiant Vitalizing Body Gel Oil with Pure Cocoa Butter

I love slathering this all over my body at night and waking up with smooth, soft skin.

#6 –  Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser Light

This moisturiser is extremely light and doesn’t make my skin feel greasy at all which can be a problem for people with oily skin.

#7 – Boots

DSC_0124

I love wearing boots with everything in the autumn, my favourite are these black biker boots from next.

#8 – Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

This product is extremely hydrating and lasts for a long time on my lips, which is great for the colder months. It also is very buildable and can leave either an extremely sheer hint of colour or can be layered up for a more bold look.

#9 – Keratin Smooth Hair Mask

I try to do my Tresemme Keratin Smooth hair mask once or twice a week in the colder months to give my hair a deep condition. This treatment leaves your hair feeling gorgeously soft and healthy and is extremely convenient as it can be left on for a few minutes in the shower after shampooing then rinsed out.

#10 – Hand Cream

I ensure that I carry around a good hand cream in the cooler months as my hands get extremely dry. My favourite is the L’occitane Shea butter hand cream.

I absolutely love trying out new mascaras and have tested so many over the years that I thought it would be a  good idea to share with you my top 5 favorites of all time. So whether you’re looking to buy a new mascara because your running out or  just go a bit crazy testing them out like me, keep reading!

DSCN0943

#1 – Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless

This has to be the best mascara I’ve ever used, it makes your lashes extremely long and thick and doesn’t clump what so ever. It’s also great for achieving any look, from natural to an almost false effect depending on the amount you apply and holds up amazing throughout the day – no signs smudging or flaking at all!

Retails at around £7.99

#2 – Maybelline The Falsies

This mascara is great for giving extremely thick looking lashes as its specially designed curved brush coats every lash giving a fuller, more dramatic look.

Retails at around £7.99

#3 – 17 Blow Out Mascara

Read review on this mascara here: http://youniquechic.com/2012/08/

Retails at around £4.00

#4 – Avon Super Extend Mascara

This mascara is amazing for a more natural look as it gives lashes length but not much volume. Perfect for daily wear and holds a curl really well.

Retails at around £10

#5 – Soap And Glory Thick&Fast

The huge brush on this mascara helps to thicken the lashes whilst giving a lot of volume and curl. My only issue is that it works amazing for the first few weeks but seems to dry up quickly.

Retails at around £10
