Welcome to a fresh new monthly favourites of 2014! I seem to have a theme in this favourites post and that is - mini beauty products.
I have accumulated quite a selection of unused minis that seem to never get used so whilst clearing out my stash I decided to incorporate them into my make up routine ^^
These five miniatures deserve to be spoken about, since I did get on well with these and I may even go to purchase the full sized ones <3
Burt's Bees almond milk beeswax hand cream - This is such a lovely thick cream that I now use in the night before sleeping and this has surely helped sooth any dry skin patches and it adds alot of moisture back that was lost. I also need to point out that this smells like marzipan! So scrummy. A little goes a long way with this product and it sure is great for travelling too!
Benefit's Porefessional primer - I received this sample but I kept it stored away since priming is the forgotten step in my routine, I tend to 'laze' away because I do not have the time BUT adding this to my daily make up routine was the best thing yet! It minimises my pores and it keeps my make-up on for longer, I do not need to powder as much and this has such a lovely silky texture.
Estee Lauder double wear mascara - This lil beaut has all the capabilities of being a decent mascara, It adds definition and lengthens my lashes to an extreme length and do you know the best part? it does not smudge ^^ one of my favourites in my collection amongst Rimmel and L'oreal. I would love to try more higher end mascaras though!
Benefit's That gal primer - Again staying with the primer topic, this was another sample that I had stored away. This added luminosity to my complexion, it definitely brightens and it held my make up so it's another winner! I have learnt that you should NEVER skip the priming part, since it creates a perfect clean canvas for your make up.
Burt's Bees radiance eye cream - I received this in a mini radiance kit and I love this stuff! I can confidently say that this brightens, lifts and hydrates my eye area <3 I will have to purchase the full sized one soon...at £20,a pop.
