‘My Basket’ is a new addition to my beauty-things storage. I’m always trying out new hair and body products so the basket is my way of keeping track of what things I’m using and loving at that moment; as things get used up I swap in new products from my stocks and if something is not up to scratch then out it goes and in comes another product to save the day. So it’s safe to say that a product has wheedled its way into the basket then its probably doing a good job. In the past weeks the basket has had an almost 100% overhaul so here are what products I’m slathering on my body and hair at the moment!

I’m still on a bit of a minimal makeup mission at the moment. I think it’s a combination of the warm weather and me craving more time in bed in the mornings – we’ve all been there, eh! But I’ve found a nice little beauty product combo that has been getting me through the last week featuring some new products and maybe even a few surprises…

Today I am nursing a rather large boulder that’s erupted on my chin. Lovely. I have a few skincare saviours in my arsenal though that I deploy on occasions like today, so let’s have a chat about them…

I love soft pink lip gloss but it has been a while since I have found a new one that I feel like I want to wear all the time. Until now!! Ooooh yeah! I am in love with L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss Lychee Lust.

I have finally gotten around to trying the Maybelline New York Cheeky Glow Blush which has been raved about so so much and marketed as a ‘truly next generation blush’. I got myself rather excited by all this and I do really like it but maybe not quite as much as I thought I would! But I’m not sure, maybe it is just as lovely as it needs to be. I don’t know…take a look!

I have the Maybelline New York Cheeky Glow Blush in the shade Fresh Coral, but there are 2 others – Creamy Cinnamon and Peachy Sweetie.

Polish – a product that you’ve probably heard me go on about 165 times. In fact it’s a product that I could quite easily write about until the cows come home! I love polishes; the smooth consistency, creamy and wearable colours and the cute bottles, building a collection of them seems quite appealing to me. And boy have I been building a collection and a half – I nearly have a small army of them!

I love big hair. Let’s face it, swishing long, wavy, voluminous locks around is the closest I’ll ever get to being a Victoria Secrets angel – a girl can dream, right? An updated hair care routine post is on it’s way but it’s pretty fair to say that if a product doesn’t have the sole purpose of adding texture or volume then I’m not interested. In my eyes bigger is better and the Bed Head by TIGI After Party* is probably one of the best products I’ve used that fits in with this mantra in a long while.
