5 Beauty Products You Need
5 Beauty Products You Need
Instead of doing a beauty faves each month, I thought I would do 5 beauty products you need to try. I'm not sure how people feel about the whole monthly favourites and to be honest I don't shake my makeup routine up enough to have new products to show each month, so I thought I would just do this style of post every now and then and see how they go. This time around I have some new goodies I have been trailing and I couldn't wait to let you all know about them.

First off I need to start with base products, I am on the look for the perfect foundation and I recently got a sample of Mac Pro Longwear Foundation. I went for the shade nc15 as I had read this foundation runs a little darker than the rest of Mac's foundations. The shade is a little dark to be honest but I can make it work by blending it down the neck. I have been using this foundation for just under a week and I have to say it was love at first sight. Just a light layer covers everything it needs to and it feels so lightweight on the skin and the best part it last literally all day. I kid you not it will look just as good as the moment you put it on to the time you take it off, it's pretty impressive. This foundation is marketed as a medium but buildable coverage and I did experiment with it a little and build it up to a higher coverage and it felt a little tacky and somewhat cakey but after a hour or two of wearing it, it seemed to settle down and looked and felt fine on the skin. Next product I want to mention is the Makeup Forever Pro Finish Powder Foundation (shade 113). This is on the other end of the coverage scale compared to Pro Longwear. Its a very fine milled powder that feels so good on the skin, yes it covers the bare minimal but it does the job and for those lazy days around the house but you still want something on the skin this is your guy. Saying that if you are blessed with great skin, I think this would become an everyday staple for you. It can be used wet or dry but I used it wet and I didn't like it but everyone is different but using it dry is a winner.

Lastly in terms of base products is my new love Nars Gina, you all know I love a good coral blush and Nars Gina is just that. I would describe it more of a orange, coral shade. It can be a little pigmented so a light hand is best and just a side note it looks a little oranger in real life, the camera is making it look a little pinker however it is a beaut.

Now I think the next product is just a Christmas edition but it has been around for 2 years now maybe more. However I read somewhere they were making it permanent but don't quote me on that, either way next December make sure you pick up Lush Rose Jam Shower gel, it smells simply incredible. Lastly is one of my all time favourite lip glosses is NYX Buttergloss in Strawberry Parfait, I have been obsessed with this the last few weeks and actually nearly run out. You all know my feeling towards the NYX Butterglosses, there is nothing but love there but this shade is a beauty. It runs almost berry like but still has a pink tone to it, you need this!

So there are 5 beauty products I recommend at the moment. Have you tried any of these products? What are you loving at the moment?
