Currently Loving #8

Hello everyone!

I hadn't planned to do another 'currently loving' blog post yet, as my last one was only a few weeks ago, but I have so many products to share with you. Continue reading if you want to find out my favourite products from the past few weeks!

Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Body Butter (£5.00):
The weather in the UK has been really nice recently, and I obviously got sun burnt! I have been using the Hawaiian Tropic after sun and it has worked wonders. The body butter is really moisturising and I have been constantly applying this, I have actually finished a whole tub of it and I am now onto a second tub. I also have the matching sun cream to this which I am going to be taking on holiday with me. 

Makeup Revolution Salvation Palette Girl Panic (£6.00):
Some of my favourite drugstore eye shadow palettes are from Makeup Revolution. I have been using this palette quite a lot recently as it has a great shade range. The bottom row of the palette consists of 6 matte shades; the first three are perfect for all over the lid and the final three are great crease shades. The top two rows of the palette are all shimmery and metallic shades. I have been loving all of the shades in this palette as the pigmentation for £6 is absolutely amazing!

 Row one bottom-top: Panic On The Street, By Invitation, Going On To Somewhere, I Am Beaten, Voices In My Head & City Trap


 Row two bottom-top: Girlfriend, Chelsea Mayhem, Random, Going Nowhere, Get Closer & Demolition

Row three bottom-top: Going Under, Let It Happen, Naked Through, Hypnotic, Mesmerised & Clever Words

MUA Luxe Bronze & Sculpt Contour Duo (£4.00):
This little contour duo is an absolute gem! MUA is a really affordable drugstore brand and they have some really great products. I have been loving the contour shade in this duo as it is really pigmented and sculpts out the cheeks really well. The formula of the contour shade is really buttery and blends out so well on the skin. I am not the biggest fan of the highlight shade as I do like a blinding highlight; but if I was going for a more natural look (which is not often to be honest!) then the highlight would be perfect. 




MUA Luxe Lip Velvet in Harmony (£3.00):
Another product I have been loving from the MUA Luxe range is the Lip Velvet in the shade Harmony. I love the formula of this lipstick as it is really light and creamy, and you can barely feel it on the lips. This doesn't dry my lips out whatsoever, despite having a matte finish, and the shade is really pretty too. 


Freedom Pro Longwear White Foundation (£3.00):
When buying foundation online it can be quite difficult to choose the perfect shade, and most of the time I end up buying a shade too dark. I got this white foundation so that I can still use foundations that are too dark for me, and it also thickens up thinner foundations too. I know that The Body Shop do whitening drops but they are a lot more expensive than this one, so for £3 you really can't go wrong!

Makeup Revolution Oval Cheek Brush (£2.50):
This brush was on sale in Superdrug a few weeks ago and I knew I just had to buy it as I've been wanting to try some oval brushes for a while. I have been using this for contour as it is the perfect size, and it blends out product beautifully. I haven't had a problem with bristles falling out, as this can sometimes be a problem with more affordable makeup brushes. I have also washed the brush twice now and it hasn't been affected at all. 

Makeup Revolution Luxury Banana Powder (£5.00):
I saw a blog post comparing this powder to the Ben Nye Banana Powder and I knew that I had to pick one up from Superdrug. I have never tried the Ben Nye powder but it is a little more pricier than the Makeup Revolution powder. I have been setting my under eye makeup with this powder and I find that it cancels out darkness under my eyes and sets my concealer in place really well too. The powder is really fine and doesn't look heavy under the eyes. 

Morphe 6 Piece Deluxe Contour Brush Set (£20.50) & M496 Duo Luxe Fan Brush (£3.00):
I recently tried out some Morphe brushes as I had been wanting to try them out for a while and Beauty Bay had a sale on, so I obviously couldn't miss that opportunity! I have been using these brushes everyday and I love them. The bristles are so soft and they are so easy to clean too. The mini fan brush is perfect for applying highlight under the brow bone. 

I Heart Makeup Unicorn Heart Rainbow Highlighter (£4.99): 
I can honestly say that this is the most pigmented and gorgeous highlighter I have EVER used in my life! I was completely blown away when I tried this highlighter for the first time. I like to mix all of the shades together and apply the highlighter with a fan brush, and it just creates a gorgeous silver holographic glow. I cannot believe that this is only £4.99 as it is way better than a lot of high end highlighters I have used. Do not be put off by the fact this is a rainbow highlighter, it's stunning and a must have product in every makeup bag! 




MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter in Peach Diamond (£3.00):
The other highlighter I have been using, and loving, is Peach Diamond by MUA. It's hard to believe that this highlighter is £3. Just like the previous one I mentioned, for a drugstore highlight the pigmentation and longevity is incredible and it definitely won't break the bank either. 



Makeup Revolution Matte Lip Kit in Noble (£6.00):
Makeup Revolution have recently launched a range of matte lip kits, and have been described as dupes for the Kylie lip kits on a number of blogs. I picked up the shade Noble and I love it; it is my perfect everyday shade. Whilst this isn't as long lasting as the Kylie lip kits, it is still considerably good considering it is a lot cheaper. As for the application of the lip liner and liquid lipstick; both glide on the lips easily and are very pigmented. 

ELF Volumizing & Defining Mascara in Jet Black (£3.00): 
Superdrug very recently began selling ELF makeup, which is an American drugstore makeup brand. Some of the products are really affordable, like this mascara, and some are a little more on the expensive side for drugstore makeup. This mascara looks great on my lashes and doesn't look clumpy like other mascaras do. Just one coat of this mascara lengthens my lashes so much, and I think that that's down to the curved shape of the wand. 


That is all of the products I have been loving since my last 'currently loving' post! Let me know in the comments what you have been loving:)
