The Top 10 tag

Thank you to the lovely Ali for the tag for the top ten products i cannot live without. Ali has a lovely blog to be found at , and is a really lovely blogger who i have just recently met on twitter and she is so awesome. Head over to check her out,i promise you wont be dissapointed!

Ok so here goes with my fav 10, and before i start i will just say i am very much a MAC Cosmetics and Dior girl. This is due to the fact that one of my favourite bloggers Tamara Kalinic has heavily influenced me in my choices. Her amazing blog can be found at for anyone that may be interested.

1. Foundation


Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 30ML

As i have combination skin,this is perfect and works for me. It seems to be long-wearing as it does last for hours and hours as i know this from an 8 hour work shift. It is easy to apply and gives a smooth look and helps minimize the appearance of imperfections.It does work well for my combination skin and i would recommend it.


 Diorskin Star concealer

When used with foundation,the visual results are really great .After just a few light dabs shadows are reduced and fine lines seemed filled,it really is superb for under eyes and conceals the dark lines.It is a dream to use and is compact in size.It also lasts for hours.Highly recommend this product.



Blot Press Powder 

I never use too much of it and it always provides a lovely finish.Great for a touch up and long lasting too.Very good for combination/oily skin and you really dont need to use too much to make a difference.


Diorskin Rosy Glow Blusher 


Diorskin Rosy Glow reacts with the moisture in each skin type, giving a delicious and subtle blush to the cheeks. When applied, the initially fresh, light colour develops into a rosy blush to suit each individual complexion.This may look very bright but does give a lovely pink blush when put on.It always gives a very fresh look and is quite long lasting.I would highly recommend this product.



Bronzing Powder 

 A lightly frosted, tinted powder that gives skin sheer, natural colour effects and highlights. Ideal for enhancing a skin tone and is my preferred choice of bronzer.

 6. Highlighter


Prep + Prime Highlighter 

I am currently using radiane rose which adds a soft colour to the skin by this pen style highlighter. Great for touch ups and of course highlighting. I am really a big fan of Mac products as i believe they are are of real high quality all round.

 7. Mascara


High Impact Mascara

I love this and it certainly gives more length as well as maximum volume,well to me anyway and it really opens your eyes giving a real awake look.It brushes on easily and is easy enough to remove also.



Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24 HR Cream Gel Eyeshadow 

This bronze is a perfect base for so many different looks and is really really long lasting too. Claims to be 24 hours and that wouldn't surprise me if you decided to keep for the full 24 hours that is. It's very smooth gel like. I also like the look of painted purple in this range and will certainly give this one a go too.I can honestly recommend this eyeshadow.



Rimmel Professional Eye Brow Pencil

 This eyebrow pencil is just great for filling in some gaps and gives a natural look,i personally like this Rimmel product as it's long wearing and doesn't smudge.

 10. Lip Products

Lipstick - MAC - Lady Danger


Well this is the easiest of all the products for me to do as i absolutely love Mac Lady Danger lipstick. It has a unique colour shade of orangy red. It's daring,bold and with a bright shade it will not always be everybody's cup of tea. But i love it and would wear it all year round but i do ntend to go pink from time to time too. This is a stand out lipstick and all i can say is,be brave,be bold and go for it. It really is gorgeous.


  So there you have it,10 of my favourite products which i use,some are only recent purchases which i have decided to try but am very very happy with them so i am certain they will now be my preferred product of choice.
