Recent Beauty Favourites

If i'm honest there weren't been many stand out products for me in 2011. I kind of feel like i've just carried on using the same things that i've always loved and there hasn't been anything i've been repurchasing a lot unless you count Batiste. I have managed to find a few of my most recent favourites to share as I haven't really done a proper beauty post in a while!

Model's Own Peach Puff - I got this in the 50% off sale and i've lost count of how many times i've worn it. I love Models Own polishes as they dry really quickly and they have a really nice colour range!
212 VIP Carolina Herrera - I got this for my birthday in September but i've kept it at home instead of taking it to uni so I don't wear it often as its definitely one of my favourites. It has quite a strong scent and i'm in love with the packaging too.
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle - This is one of the only hair products i've ever tried that actually makes a difference. I have really thick hair but the ends aren't in the best condition but this makes them look really healthy and makes my hair super soft and shiny.
Nivea Express Hydration Hand Lotion - I've had this a while and its the only hand cream that doesn't take forever to sink in. It has a really nice scent and keeps your hands soft for quite a while making it perfect for winter.

Benefit Smokin' Eyes Kit - I got this for my birthday from my friends and i've been using it lots, especially the brow wax. It's the perfect size to fit in my makeup bag and makes my eyes look nice for nights out too.
ELF Eyelash Curlers - I'm not saying these are the best eyelash curlers in the world as they're the only ones i've tried but for £1.50 i'd really recommend them. I never used to curl my eyelashes but you really notice a difference when you use these so it's become a part of my routine. 


  1. Thats a gorgeous colour nail varnish, and the benefit palette has some stunning shades :) xx

  2. I absolutely love 212 VIP, I've wanted to get it for ages but it's quite expensive. :( That Benefit kit seems nice, I'll make a mental note to check it out sometime. ^^

  3. I'd love to try that Benefit smokin' eyes set.. starting my wishlist for 2012 with it! I love the aussie hair products :) x

  4. Aussie hair stuff is amazing - most shampoos/conditioners/treatments smell nice when you wash your hair but then fade quickly, but the Aussie waft lasts for ages :D

    I really like the look of the Benefit Smokin' Eyes set too!


  5. ooh i love the smokin' eyes palette too! Love the brow wax! xx

  6. I love the Aussie conditioner, I've been using it loads over Christmas as I've had more time to leave it in my hair - love the smell! x

  7. That palette looks amazing and I love that perfume, the packaging is amazing too! xxx
