5 Current Beauty Favourites

5 Current Beauty Favourites

Can you believe it's November already? This year has flown by unlike any other. I've had a lot going on over the last 12 months and honestly, its kinda left me feeling a little bit behind in the ol' blogosphere. But I'll save the life update for another time. Today I want to give you a quick rundown of 5 current beauty favourites, that I've been using every day for the past month that are pretty damn good. 

Glossier You Eau de Parfum £45

Seriously, has anyone not bought anything from Glossier yet? I placed an order the day Glossier launched online here in the UK and have since placed several more orders. Safe to say Glossier has my attention and a lot of my moolah. Glossier You, the brands debut fragrance is beautiful. I'm not sure how best to describe this scent. But it's subtle, creamy, warm and designed to enhance your natural skin scent. Others have said Glossier You is similar to Escentric Molecule's Molecule 01, but I disagree. The only similarities are the two fragrances are gentle and designed to amplify your natural skin scent. It seems once again Glossier have done it. 

Glossier Generation G in Cake £14

It's been some time since I've gravitated to one particular lip shade on the daily, but enter Generation G in Cake in all its diffused, sheer matte goodness. This lipstick sits somewhere in-between a lipstick and tinted balm - it's matte, highly pigmented and easy to apply. Cake is a gorgeous nude with a hint of peach and not too far off my natural lip colouring, so it's a great everyday lip option. But it isn't unlike other matte lip products as it can be a tad drying, especially now the weather has taken a cold turn. But I predict I will be receiving more pink bags in the post, as I'm currently lusting after Generation G in Leo and Like.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream £70*

I've gratefully received an influx of goodies from some of my favourite brands in recent months and one product that landed on my doorstep that's been a staple in my skincare routine ever since is Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Cream. It's a rich no-nonsense moisturiser with SPF15 and I simply love slathering this stuff on my face, as it makes my skin feel so soft. Its formulation includes hyaluronic acid, antioxidant vitamin E, rosehip and camellia oils. My only negative is the packaging. Although pretty, dipping your fingers into the pot reduces the efficacy of the ingredients. But if money is no object and you've got seriously dry, dull or dehydrated skin it's more than worth it. 

BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector £21

A bout of insomnia last month resulted in dark under-eye circles. You know, the kind that won't disappear no matter how much concealer you apply. This is where BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector comes in - a peachy, pink corrector that when applied before concealer helps banish dark circles. To apply I use my fingers and tap a little to inner corners of my eyes and blend the product under my lash-line and boy does it brighten. It has a very creamy texture that works wonders for my dry and exhausted skin, but I always set with a powder otherwise my concealer will crease and slip'n'slide all over the place. 

Too Faced Love Light Highlighter in Blinded By The Light £25

I very rarely hit pan on products, but I can imagine I will on this one. Too Faced's Love Light Prismatic Highlighter in Blinded By The Light doesn't look as blinding on the skin as the name suggests. Rather it's an incredibly subtle beige pearlescent highlight, with a hint of shimmer and I've been reaching for it on the regular. It doesn't trump my cult-fave Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in 01, but is another great pick for a subtle, pretty, everyday highlight. Not to mention, the metallic heart-shaped packaging is pretty cute.
