Best of the Brand.



There are just some brands that never fail, particularly in the high street. They hold host to some amazing products, whether it be bases, eye products or lips..there is something for everyone. 

My favourites brands at the minute are Rimmel, Maybelline, Revlon, Topshop and Bourjois. They always have amazing products, some which are everyday essentials for me and ones that I wouldn't hesitate to repurchase.

Rimmel: Rimmel are the first makeup brand I tried, and they haven't disappointed since. Their Wake Me Up foundation has been one of my favourite foundations to date. It's perfect for summer, really brightening my skin. Leaving my skin looking just the right amount of dewy and glowing, without appearing oily.
I'm a HUGE fan of their Apocalip Lip Lacquers, they are such gorgeous colours and are so pigmented it's crazy. They apply like a gloss, dry like a lipstick and last like a lip stain. Perfect right?!
I love love love Rimmel's Scandaleyes range, their eyeliners are so soft and creamy. The nude eyeliner is my absolute favourite and has made such a difference to my makeup routine. The Scandaleyes Shadow Sticks are another favourite of mine, they apply so softly and add just the right amount of colour to your lids. I love to use them as a base, before applying any other eyeshadows, as they help them to last longer on my lids. 
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder is my favourite powder ever. I can't see me using another one any time soon. It does the job and is ridiculously cheap! It really helps to mattify the skin, without looking cakey.

Revlon: My favourite product from Revlon are definitely the lip butters. They come in an amazing range of colours, some really subtle and some that add an amazing pop of colour. My favourites are the berry shades Raspberry Pie and Lollipop. They are my go to shades, especially in Autumn/Winter. They really hydrate my lips and the lasting power is amazing. 

Maybelline: Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr anyone?! These have become a fast favourite in my makeup bag, they are so hyped about in the blogging/vlogging world and it's understandable why. They are so easy to apply and blend, they don't crease on the eye, and work amazing as a base for other shadows. 

Bourjois: I think Bourjois are my favourite makeup brand..I think..don't hold me too it. I am a huge fan of their bases, Healthy Mix and the Happy Light Foundations are my absolute favourite to wear on a daily basis. They don't break the bank yet provide an amazing soft, hydrated, dewy base. 
The Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons are lovely, I own Peach on the Beach and it is the perfect Spring/Summer shade. 
I've recently picked up the Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer, and I love it. It feels so moisturising on the skin and really helps to leave the skin hydrated, before applying your base of choice. I have a blog post coming out on this soon, so keep your eyes peeled ;).

Topshop: I think i'd class Topshop as a drugstore brand? It's very reasonably priced and great quality. I love the simple packaging, it's so cute and always looks good on my dressing table.
Their cream blushes are amazing, I have two and wear them regularly. They are really pigmented, so you only need one dab of this on the cheeks, and you're good to go. They blend so easily, leaving behind a gorgeous natural colour, I use the Real Techniques Stippling Brush to blend the blush out and it works perfectly.
I'm a sucker for a Topshop lipstick, they have such a range of colours, something for everyone. I always apply a good layer of lip balm before applying these, as they can cling to dry patches on your lips, but the colour payoff is so good, i'll forgive them.
