Currently Loving #10*

Hello everyone!

It has definitely been a while since I did a 'Currently Loving' blog post, but what better time to do one than now?! We've recently had Christmas and I have just celebrated my birthday too, so I definitely have a few products to share with you today.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Light/Medium Contour Kit:
My first favourite at the moment is the Anastasia Beverly Hill Contour Kit. I was so glad to find this under the Christmas tree as I had been wanting to try it out for ages. I have had the chance to use it a good few times since, and I am really enjoying it. The shades are very pigmented and they blend out like a dream too. I can't believe I waited so long to try this out, but it was definitely worth the wait!


Kat Von D Lock It Concealer:
I have been a fan of the Kat Von D Lock It Foundation for a while now but I had never tried the corresponding concealer out until I received it as a Christmas gift. I knew that this concealer would not let me down as the foundation is so amazing, and I definitely wasn't wrong! The concealer is very creamy and is really blendable. I love this for the under eye area especially as it is really brightening and does a brilliant job at covering up my dark circles. 


Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Posh Spice:
Another makeup piece I got for my birthday is Posh Spice from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I had no doubt in my mind that this would be featuring in this post as I absolutely love the Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks. They feel very velvety and last amazingly well on my lips; a lot longer than any other liquid lipstick has before. Posh Spice is a really lovely cool toned taupe colour, which is very similar to the shades that I have pretty much been living in for the past 2 years.

FOR COMPARISON: POSH SPICE IS LIGHTER AND A TAD COOLER THAN CELEBRITY SKIN, ALSO BY JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Nudist:
I'm not usually a fan of glossy lips, I tend to stick to matte, but I have recently been using a glossy lip crayon from Soap & Glory. It's the Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in the shade Nudist and I am really enjoying it as the formula is, understandably, a lot more moisturising than a matte lipstick. I also really love that it's a nude shade which I can wear on an everyday basis. I got the lipstick in a lip trio gift set at Christmas, but this shade is for sure my favourite of the three.  


Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow:
Staying on the theme of lips... My next favourite is the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow, part of the Bow N Arrow Duo. The lipstick which came in the duo is a miniature size and I will definitely be purchasing the full sized version when I run out.

FOR COMPARISON: BOW N ARROW IS SLIGHTLY DARKER THAN CELEBRITY SKIN BY JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS

The Pillow With A Hole:
This is definitely a bit different to the items I normally feature on my blog but this pillow has been amazing for me over the past few weeks. I have been getting a few different ear piercings but I am a side sleeper which meant I found it very difficult to sleep on my side with my normal pillows. The lovely team over at The Pillow With A Hole Co. sent me this pillow and it has been an absolute life saver. 


Nip + Fab Eye Shadow Palette in Sculpted:
Nip + Fab makeup has been in Superdrug for a little while now but I am only now getting round to trying out some of the products they have on offer. I don't own an eye shadow palette which is primarily matte so I am very happy to have added this to my eye shadow palette collection. This has very quickly become a cult classic of mine as you can't go wrong with the neutral shade range; something I really only ever wear. This is one of those palettes which can be used to create so many different eye looks, which is something I always like in a palette. I will definitely be taking this on holiday with me in August as it is doesn't take up too much room but still contains 12 high quality eye shadows. 

Nip + Fab Blusher Palette in Blushed:
For the longest time ever I never really bothered with blusher, but I've recently fell back in love with it. My go to blusher at the moment comes in the form of a Nip + Fab palette. The palette contains four gorgeous blushers which are really pigmented. My favourite shades are Whisper and Velvet, the two shades on the bottom row,as I find that they really compliment my skin tone. I am so glad I discovered this palette or I probably wouldn't have got back into wearing blusher:)

Shawn Mendes Signature Fragrance:
I mentioned in my 'What I Got For Christmas' blog post that I was a huge fan of Shawn Mendes and so I received his Signature fragrance. I am in love with the scent of this fragrance. It is exactly the type of scent which I like. I also love the design of the bottle as it is really sleek with lovely touches of a copper guitar string and plectrum.


That is everything I have been loving over the past couple of weeks. What items have you been loving recently?


Until next time,
