My Favourite Make Up Products At the Moment and A Special Surprise!


So lately I have been buying a tonne of beauty products and I thought I'd share my favourites with you so far! If you have any favourite products that you want to share or if you have your own opinion about one of these featured products drop a comment! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this!

Before I start, I wanted to mention that I am currently running a competition which closes on Sunday! I am giving away a SIGNED KALIMUR CD! You need to enter via Twitter or Instagram and all you need to do is follow me and retweet one of the tweets/repost the image on Instagram about this competition using the hashtag #KalimurIsUnique and you'll be entered in a draw to win this fabulous prize!

I have been planning this for a while but I haven't had the chance to actually run it due to exams and stuff which I've probably mentioned to you all at some point - sometimes I forget what I say on here...Kalimur are really great friends of mine and I thought you'd all love something a bit special on my blog (there might be something else similar at some point) since I've been pretty boring lately!

Oh! As well, if you like THE HUNNA and have a question that you'd like to ask them, leave a comment of that question along with your Twitter handle, email me at or send me a tweet and maybe I'll ask them in a few weeks time....

Now that all the important stuff is done, I'm going to actually get on with my post now!

Benefit Triple Performing Moisteriser -

I received this for Christmas which explains why it's so small. I started using it the other day and I'm in love with it! It's a light moisturiser which is oil free, great for my oily skin! Speaking of skin, any skin type can use it and it will hydrate your skin and blur it a tad to get rid of any imperfections. This product is great to put under make up as it makes your skin look and feel great. You can buy it from Boots for £23,50.

Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm -

Yes, this men's post shaving balm. However, there has been major hype about this product lately. This posts shaving balm acts as a brilliant primer base for your make up. It smell amazing, feels amazing and does wonders. I usually put it on before bed because my skin will soak it up in the night leaving my skin lovely for the morning. This is available in Boots for £5.35.

Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer -

I bought this a couple weeks ago because I needed some new concealer, I thought I'd give this one a try. I love the Rimmel London Wake Me Up products and this lives up to my expectations. It has total coverage and will last most of the day, you get a lot for the price too. You can pick up the Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer at Superdrug for £5.49.

Maybelline New York Superstay Better Skin Foundation -

If you have acne, this is the best cheap foundation that will have great coverage. It costs £8.99 from Boots. It has all day coverage which is what every girl wants in a foundation - you're skin is also meant to look better within 3 weeks of use, which it definitely does! It evens the skin tone and gets rid of any imperfections and dullness.

Make Up Academy Pro Base Eye Primer - 

This is a real life saver when it comes to the eyes. I got it from Superdrug a while back for £2.50. You apply this before you put on eyeshadow and it reduced the creases in your eyeshadow and also gives a better colour to the eyeshadow. I went one day without putting this on , let me tell you, you could really tell the difference. I swear buy this now, I won't wear eyeshadow without it on.

Maybelline New York Colour Tattoo 24 Hour -

I'm sorry for the large image here, I do own four of these but the picture with only three was the best so, sorry! Anyhow, these are £4.99 each from Superdrug and are some of the best eyeshadows I have bought in a while! I have got the shades Pink Gold, Creamy Beige, On And On Bronze and Creme De Rose. These are creamy type eyeshadows and they last all day, sometimes longer. They are vibrant and make your eyes look fabulous especially if you have voluminous eyelashes to go with the shadow.

Barry M Coconut Infusion Nail Paint - 

I'm always trying out new nail varnishes and these are the best I've bought. I'm not the biggest fan of Barry M Nail Paint but when I read about this particular collection, I had to give it a try. The colour is infused with coconut water and oil, which nourishes and hydrates the nails. It strengthens them and leaves them in a better condition then they were before you painted them. Believe what you hear because it really works! You can get them from any drugstore for £4.99 each.

Don't forget to enter the competition and leave a question for me to ask The Hunna! I hoped you liked today's post additionally, anyone with with exams who is reading this, shouldn't you be studying?! But good luck and I hope they're all going well, don't use as many exclamation marks in your English exam as I do on here because I just put them in everywhere as I'm so excited all the time, haha!

Until next time...

Sophie xx
