New Series: Timeless Favourites

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Recently, I have been going back and trying out products I loved in the past but I haven’t used for a while.  Some of this was prompted by browsing in Boots and seeing products I used to buy all the time and wondering why I had stopped using them.  I’ve also being going through my older blog posts to see what I want to update or discard and I’ve seen posts on some real old favourites.   

I’ve found that even though time has passed, many of these products are still amazing and they have become favourites again! There are so many exciting new products being launched regularly that it can be easy sometimes to overlook or forget those gems in your make-up collection which you come back to time and time again. 

I thought it would be fun to start a new series called ‘Timeless Favourites’ featuring products which have really stood the test of time for me.   Look out for posts on my ‘Timeless Favourites’ over the coming months!

Are there any products which you find yourself going back to time and time again? I would love to know your ‘Timeless Favourites’ products too.  Let me know in the comments section!

Urban Decay Naked Heat Lipsticks: Fuel and Heat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Urban Decay recently launched their Naked Heat collection, including an eyeshadow palette, three Vice lipsticks and a 24/7 eyeliner.  I picked up two of the lipsticks (Heat and Fuel) and the eyeliner (Torch) as I loved these particular shades.  I don’t have anything else like Fuel in my make-up collection and Heat is just such a beautiful, burnished coppery-red shade.  Wonderful additions to my make-up collection!

When I’m on holiday, I like my make-up to be effortless and easy.  I like to look polished and nicely presented but I don’t want to have to spend much time getting ready.  When I’m visiting warmer climates, I also like my make-up to be very light and fresh; I prefer not to have much on my face at all.  Over the years, I’ve managed to whittle down my holiday make-up bag to those products that I know I will use.

I thought it would be fun to do a post featuring those products, as I know how hard it can be to leave products behind when you are a make-up lover! This post features my favourite face, eye and lip products for taking on holiday.
