Currently Loving

11 Aug 2013

So, earlier today I had the urge to create a monthly favourite posts which is just like me to decide to make this post at the start of a new month so I thought it may be more fitting to call this a 'current favourites instead! I may start to do these every few months or so when I have a range of things I've been loving; as monthly favourites would almost force me to give you products, books or CDs that I'm just saying I love that I may not really have been liking that particular month and I don't like lying to you! It also gives me the chance to collect new products so I'm not repeating my favourites!

Mac Fix+ - I won't mention much on this topic as I explained my love for it in a previous review which you can read here but it's been working so amazing that I felt I need to include it into this post aswell. The thing that makes me use this product as often as I am is because of how smooth,not oily, my skin ends up feeling when applying over make-up and getting rid of that 'cakey' feel. I've also been finding it useful as it has become increasingly warmer in England so I use it as a slight refresh during the day.
Tangle Teezer - I may be slightly late on this band wagon but since buying the tangle teezer, I've been looking forward to brushing my hair because I don't have to go through the battle of brushing through the massive knots that my old hairbrushes failed to untangle properly. In a nutshell, I doubt I will ever go back to a normal hair brush every again!
Looking For Alaska- I actually included this book in a post where I was inspired by the cover to paint my nails with a small daisy on which you can read here. Since posting that, I have finished it and I loved! I don't want to give too much away to ruin it for others and also I'm planning on doing a small review sometime very soon.
Barry M Gelly Shine Nail Varnishes- When I first purchased a gelly shine nail varnish, unlike the tangle teezer, I was very early on the band wagon and when seeing the colours I immediately chose the colour Watermelon which I later regretted and was a real impulse buy! Because of how bad this nail varnish looked I thought all the others were aswell. However, when I went to buy Topshop's nail varnish in 'Celestial', I realised how similar it was to the Gelly Shine nail varnish in Blueberry and was a little bit cheaper so I thought I would give it another chance and I absolutely love it and, just like Looking for Alaska, it features in that same blog post which I will link again here so you can see what it looks like on. I also never say no to a good deal and seeing as these nail varnishes were on buy one get one free in Superdrug I had to buy the colour Passion Fruit which isn't a colour I would normally go for but I must of been feeling a little wild that day. Since then, I've been wearing it non-stop on my toe nails!
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Lip Balm Original- Since seeing this a few months back I've been using it non-stop on my lips, applying it at the same time as my primer in the mornings so that by the time I come to put a lip product on, it has moisturised and sunk into my lips making them just that little bit softer. I have to admit, this does make my lips feel ever so slightly greasy and oily but you soon get over it and who cares; it works!
Dog is Dead 'Our Favourite Stories'- I purchased this CD in November of last year where I did what I'm sure you do and that's listen to the CD  on repeat for so long that you start to get sick of hearing it and don't listen to it for months. Well, last month I came out of that stage and back into the 'listen to it non-stop' stage again so I thought I would include it into my favourites, quickly before I start to have withdrawal symptoms from listening to it for so long! Dog Is Dead is such a lovely band! There songs range from The Right Thing' and 'Teenage Daughter'.
 L'Oreal Micellar Solution- I'm going to keep this short and sweet as I have a full review scheduled to be uploaded sometime very soon (once up I will link here). Overall, This product is a make-up remover and toner. After being one of those lazy uns' who just use cheap make up removing wipes, I felt I should bring a 'real' make-up remover into my life and I'm so glad I have. I'm also not a toner kind of person and so with the toner in this, I thought it would help to introduce toner into my routine and onto my skin.
Kate Moss Lipstick in #19 - I see no pointing writing why I love this colour of lipstick if you don't get to see the colour for yourself so I will leave a picture and a swatch of it below.This lipstick, for me, is very much a 'my lips but better' but a slightly dark 'my lips but better' so is fairly subtle for during the day if apply a lip gloss over the top or it could easily be worn for a meal or night out.The Kate Moss lipsticks the most moisturising lipsticks I've ever come across but I find this has to be my favourite of the colours as I don't suit many colours on my leaps and mainly suit colours that are very close to my natural lip colour. This has to be my most worn lipstick!

My final favourite is the duvet set featured in the back of the photos on this post! After slightly revamping my room, I decided to buy a new duvet set. I saw this one actually used in some of the amazing  Kate(gh0stparties) blog photos and when I saw it in Ikea I had to buy it.The one downside is there is not fastenings at the end of the sheet to keep the duvet in so it's forever sliding out but I'm sure it's nothing a little bit of sticky Velcro can't fix!
I hope you enjoyed this first Current Favourites and let me know what you think of these posts and also what you're currently loving!
Hope you're having a good day! x
