What I'm using right now:

This was grabbed from the lovely Megan from Beauty in the Sky blog. I thought it was a very fun post and decided to do one as well, check out her version of the post here .
It would be really interesting to see what you're currently using, so please do a similar post on your blog too!

Shampoo: James Brown London High gloss shampoo.
Conditioner: James Brown London Volume boost conditioner. (Really loving this conditioner!)
Styling products:
Shu uemura Essence Absolue - similar to Moroccan oil, at the moment I like the Moroccan oil better, but the Shu one feels lighter.
Umberto Giannini Backcomb in a bottle - I really really like this product, it provides instant volume without hair feeling sticky or greasy.
Umberto Giannini Natural Curls Styling Spray - I really like this product too, I might do a review on these and write about how I use them.

Shower Gel: Nivea Happy Time shower cream - only £1 when I got it and it works good as a shower gel, it claims that the scent will make you feel happy, not quite sure about this... but I do tend to tell myself "I should feel happy now I'm using this", haha and it works.

Body moisturiser: Marks&Spencers Ingredients Coconut Body Butter - This was recommended by Stephanie in her March Favourites , so I just got this recently and really love it! It smells sooo nice, very coconuty, but still fresh, not overpowering at all. However, I'm not too sure if it's very moisturising though.
Deodorant: Dove invisible dry deodorant.
Fake Tan: Never used any.

Cleanser: Shiseido White Lucency foaming cleanser & Clinique rinse off foaming cleanser to remove makeup
Toner: Shiseido the skincare hydro-nourishing softener.
Exfoliator: Not using one at the moment, my skin is really sensitive.
Peeling: Not using any...
Mask: I have a lot of samples or gift with purchases that I'm trying, haven't found one that I love yet.
Serum: Kiehls midnight recovery concentrate - LOVE! I will do a review of this soon.
Moisturizer: Shiseido White Lucency day and night cream, and sometimes Chanel hydramax+ active moisturizer when my skin is really dry.

Primer: Nars primer with spf, they're coming up with new ones now I think, only use it occasionally, sometimes I just use sunscreen as primer.
Foundation & brush: Chanel Vitalumiere 20 and Nars sheer glow in Gobi mixed, Sigma Sigmax brushes.
Concealer: I have a few and just go for whatever I can see first, favorite for concealing spots is the Benefit Boi-ing, for undereye Elis Fass concealer.
Powder: Guerlain meteorites compact powder.
Blusher: Changes constantly but I'm loving Nars Orgasm at the moment!! I know a lot of people think it's overhyped, but been reaching for it a lot recently. Also love Nars Cactus Flower cream blush with MAC My highland honey on top.
Bronzer: Benefit Hoola - Only bronzer, use it to contour.
Highlighter: Nars Albatross - it's nice, but it's a bit too gold on my skin.
Eyeshadow base: Nars eyeshadow primer
Eyeshadows: Oh god... this changes every day, if I had to pick one, I'll say MAC Satin Taupe, so versatile, use it for all over lid, crease, to blend out other colours. I really love wearing colour on my lid and then using Satin Taupe to blend out the edges, this makes the look a lot more wearable.
Eyeliner: Urban Decay 24/7 Liner Pencil in Zero.
Curler: Shu uemura
Mascara: Clinique High Impact or High Length.
Lipstick: MAC Shy girl for nude lip, Nars Barbarella for peachy/coral lip, Nars Roman Holiday for a pick lip.
Lipgloss: Not a fan of lipglosses at the moment, not sure why... maybe it's too hot?
Nail Colour: Nails Inc- St.James on toes, Barry m Berry Icecream on fingers.

Wow... this is sooo long, hope you like it!
Have a good weekend everyone!!



  1. Great post!

  2. You can't go past Bo-ing covers up the worst of the worst and stays put!! Need to get more. Have the 2 but think I'm really a 1!!

  3. Yes, Bo-ing is so great for spots! I have shade 1 and 2 in the Confessions of a concealerholic palette, and I mix them up to get the right colour for me.
