Five To Try #2

5 to try

Barry M Surfboard Nail Polish
I’d been struggling to find the perfect nail polish for this not so summery summer we’re currently experiencing in London. Barry M Surfboard is the perfect soft pink with a hint of lilac and really inoffensive, plus it lasts surprisingly long!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara
I’m not usually a huge fan of waterproof mascara but as it’s summer I think it’s good to always have a tube to hand, in case of water flights, beach trips or hayfever. I love the original Better Than Sex Mascara and have been loving this one over the last month. I don’t think I would ever switch full time over to the waterproof one as it is so much harder to remove but it held up really well with my extreme hayfever yesterday, the rest of my makeup didn’t do so well. I’ve made a whole video dedicated to this mascara so check it out here.

Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate
A few months back I had a skin consultation in Kiehl’s Regent St, where they recommend lots of products to help improve my dehydrated skin. One of the recommended products was this Kiehl’s oil which helps correct the visible appearance of Skin Fatigue. I’ve been using it on days that I feel my skin needs some extra TLC and have found it to really help make my skin look more glowy and healthy!

L’Oreal Cushion Foundation & Cushion Bronzer
I’ve been raving about this to anyone that will listen as I just think it’s the perfect, lightweight, buildable, summer product. The foundation is nice a glowy, just how I like it but can easily be powdered down for a more matte look. The bronzer adds a really natural looking glow/tan to the skin which I just love and can be really intensified with a powder bronzer.

Collection Deluxe Lipsticks
I always say that drugstore nude lipsticks are just as good as high-end ones and these really prove it. They remind me a little of the MAC Lustre finish lipsticks, they’re relatively sheer but buildable with an almost gloss finish. I love this sort of finish when the rest of my skin is quite matte and I think in nude colours it can look really beautiful (I would go for matte bold colours). The three that caught my eye are Baby Doll, Chicago and Liberty as they’re all beautiful, everyday nudes. I would even say Chicago is a great dupe for MAC Patisserie which is one of my favourite ever lipsticks!

Would love to hear which five products you’ve been loving recently in the comments.

    I love the Too Faced mascara, I just got a sample of it. I don’t think we have that cushion bronzer in the US it looks cool!

    I also have dehydrated skin and have tried a bunch of products to try to add more hydration. I’ve never tried Kiehl’s. I’ll have to try some it out!

    I’m so curious to find out it the Loreal cushion bronzer compares to the old glam bronze liquid bronzer they did.

    I really want to try the better than sex waterproof as I love the regular! But have heard a few dud reviews on it saying it isn’t as good 🙁 But I love the barry M polish!

    Dying to try the L’Oreal cushion foundation and bronzer! I’ve been loving the Urban Decay HD Powder Foundation, it’s more matte but gives such a flawless finish 🙂

    Love this! I need to grab the perfect nude lippy. I’ve just bought myself the Make up Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter and it is so pigmented!
