Recent Favourites #5

Miracle bump oil and balm
*Sent for review*

Oh my goodness I adore these!! I'm currently doing a full review of these two beauts but so far so good! When I've finished them a full review will be available. But I'm really enjoying using these and the smell is out of this world!

L'oreal 3 in 1 purifying Micellar Solution

I've been using this for a while now although I have gone through it quite quickly it has to be said and its really lovely. I prefer it to most of the other solutions I have used I only use these every now and again as no matter what people say they will never give you a proper deep clean like a 'proper' cleanser would. But I got this on offer in Superdrug for about £3 so you really can't complain for the price. If you fancy trying this just wait until it goes on offer as I always see it in Boots and Superdrug on some kind of offer.

Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil
450mls £59.00 

This one I have had for ages but only just got round to using quite recently and to be honest I don't know what took me so long!? I am in love it's so quick and easy and I can't imagine not using it now. I pop on 2 pumps of oil all over my dry face and then ad water and hey presto make up free face. This one is a keeper and I would recommend for those of you who find removing make up a chore. I have the 'green one' which is good for most skin types and anyone looking for an anti-oxidant cleanser.

Neal's Yard Remedies Mothers Balm

This is one thing I really love it's a little greasy but great for massage! I can imagine this will be a godsend when that itchy belly syndrome kicks in. The thick waxy consistency is really comforting on the bump, and I tend to slather this all over my thighs, bum, bump and boobs. I plan on doing a full review of this item shortly, maybe after pregnancy.

Nars Blusher in Luster

I love all nars blushers so they can't put a foot wrong with me to be honest! But this is one on the blushers that I've been reaching for loads recently I usually layer it with an illamasqua blusher as it adds a gorgeous sheen. This is a versatile number and Im sure i'll continue to use this loads in the colder months to add some warmth to my cheeks.

MAC Amplified Lipstick in Up The Amp

I'm a huge lipstick fan in general and find I have a lot of MAC Lipsticks. Up The Amp is a perfect Autumn shade and is a good shade for so many skintones, so if you're yet to dip your toes into the berry hues of lipstick then this is a good place to start.

Illamasqua Lipstick in Shard

As I've said before I am a massive fan of Illamasqua and their products and this colour is just perfect for the season! Its so rich and pigmented, and can't think that anyone wouldn't love it! I find that Illamasqua lipsticks are very long lasting, most are a matte finish which may contribute to their longevity however they are not overly drying considering the finish. This colour is part of their 'sacred hour' collection also.

So there you have a few of my more recent faves! What have you been using lately? Any of these?

Hope everyone is doing well? I'm just enjoying a lazy day today before a full weekend of work... Oh the joy! But only 2 more weeks until I break up for my maternity leave, can't believe how quick its coming around. I'm also going to be popping up a pregnancy update soon too! 

Thanks for reading Dollies
