Products I'm loving #1

I love nothing more than logging on to blogger to find my favourite bloggers have posted about their current favourite products so I thought I'd steal the idea and do a products i'm loving post of my own! Sorry about the lighting in these photos.  I stupidly decided to leave it 'til 3.56pm to photograph them. I'm so silly.

Sleek Face Contour Kit  £6.79
I couldn't find the link to this on the Superdrug website so I've had to link it on Amazon where the price is £6.79 but I'm sure I didn't pay this much for it from Superdrug.  As you can tell the contour kit is much loved by me.  I use it everyday and just love the effect it has on my cheekbones.  I've got it in the shade Medium and you barely need much on your brush at all otherwise there's a slight chance of over doing it which can I add, looks awful!  I barely ever use the highlighter because Benefit's high beam is usually my go to.

Revlon Matte Lipstick in Pink Pout £2.99
In shops this lipstick retails at around £6.99 if I'm correct.  Luckily I managed to buy mine from Fragrance Direct for only £2.99 although I think this particular shade is sold out now :( sad face.  I absolutely fell in love with this lipstick after swatching it in Boots once.  It's a gorgeous mid pink colour and reminds me so much of MAC snob.  It's a great alternative.  I tried to swatch it in the shape of a heart but erm, lets not talk about that.  Next to it is the Sleek face contour kit which for some reason I didn't take a picture of on it's own. I'm so weird.

Revlon Luscious Plumping Mascara  £5
OMG! I've just logged on to the Superdrug website and this mascara's on sale for a fiver instead of £9.99 so if you're looking to try it now's a great opportunity.  Just click the link and it'll take you straight there.  I actually got mine in a prize from More Magazine for winning an event on Fantasy Shopper.  I am head over heels in love with this mascara and I'm so fussy when it comes to finding a mascara.  My eyelashes are quite short and I use lashings of mascara to get them to an okayish level.  With this mascara all I need is about three coats and they're done! It's really buildable and a little bit clumpy but I don't mind because I love my lashes looking clumpy.  I think I'll definitely be taking advantage of the Superdrug offer.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover £26.50
On first reflection this is quite a 'splurge' for a foundation but when you really think about it, you only need the tiniest bit of this foundation for doll like coverage.  A little really does go a long way and leaves you with the most flawless coverage.   I'm never going to bother buying another foundation again unless it's for pale days! I've got this one in Medium/Deep so it matches my fake tan.  It's meant to be camouflage makeup which is designed to cover scars and spots.  I don't have either, I just really love the heavy coverage.

Soap and Glory Heel Genius £5.11
This is an absolute god send and this is one of the few products I will purchase again and again.  I have seriously hard heels, or should I say had ;) Since using this - actually rephrase, since bullying my boyfriend into giving me foot massages every couple of days my feet have been feeling super soft.  I love this so much and just when you think it can't get any better you have a cheeky sniff of it and inhale the gorgeous Soap and Glory signature scent. Aaaah amazing!

Snow Fairy Shower Gel £3.25
I'm having to guess the price since Snow Fairy is a Christmas thing and Lush have completely sold out now :( sob.  Luckily I managed to get a few bottles in the Sale so I'm trying not to use them as much as I want to just to make them last.  If you haven't smelt Snow Fairy, I feel so sorry for you.  I don't know how anyone could dislike the bubblegum scent of the shower gel and if I'm honest that's why I'm loving it.  The shower gel does make your skin feel beautifully smooth but I am more of a sucker for the scent and bright pink packaging.  It's basically like a princess liquidated into a bottle.

Hope you all liked this post and if you've wrote a recent post about the products you've been loving, please link it below because they're one of my favourite reads!
