Big Bumper Beauty Favourites

The I haven't done a favourites for absolutely ages favourites. I really admire bloggers that muster up favourites post every month. I mean to, but I'm just not that disciplined. Here's a collection of my latest loves and can't-be-withouts...

bareMinerals Smoothing Face Brush £24 here

Come to mama! I saw this brush at the Complexsion Rescue launch and couldn't take my hands off it. Seriously the girls had to watch me in case it accidentally (on purpose) fell in my handbag. It's become my does-it-all brush over the last few weeks - great for foundation, concealer, cream blush, liquid bronze. Okay, it clearly deserves its own post so I'll not say much else... Except I didn't steal it. I bought it legitimately.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Rose & Lavender (Available in the Cleanse & Polish trio) 

So they took my favourite cleanser and made it even more yummy! To my knowledge Liz has only made 3 Limited Edition cleansers... And this was the only one I hadn't laid my hands on so when it was relaunched to celebrate Liz Earle's 20th anniversary I had to try it. It's every bit as good as the traditional cleanser (full review here) but it has amazingly intoxicating lavender and rose aromas. Perfect in be evening or in the bath when you've got time to breathe the goodness in... And relax! It's such a shame this is limited edition.

Gillette Venus Snap Portable Razor £9.99 3 for 2 Boots

This is genius! A bit like suitcases on wheels, I wonder why it took so long to invent this? A full size Venus head on a short handled razor, all contained in diddy little case... Perfect for travelling. No more reaching into my toiletry bag and getting a nasty scratch.

Nails Inc The New White £14 here

Sick of me going on about these yet? But they have pretty much been on rotation on my nails for the last two months. Soft, white based polishes with pretty pastel tints... perfectly summery!

bareMinerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener £22 here

bareMinerals you're killing me! My new go-to does-it-all concealer. Makes for a beautiful, air brushed like complexion, full review here.

Benefit Curl Power £19.50 here

Bin the eyelash curlers because this one does it all. It curls, it lifts, it lengthens and it boosts. I'm still a huge fan of They're Real, but there are times when I don't want all out volume. This one's my go-to when I want sexy, glossy, curves. Review here

La Roche Posey £4.50 each, 3 for 2 Boots here

A damn good hand cream for a damn good price! I picked this up in Paris (remember my City Pharma Haul) and it's since gained a coveted position on my bed-side table. I slather this one every night, it's light-weight, fast absorbing, non-greasy and extremely moisturising.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz £15.50 here

Confession time, I've been holding out on you. This has more or less replaced dipbrow as my brow go-to and I forgot to tell you... sorry. It's an ultra fine, twisty up brow pencil that mimics natural brow hair and fills in the sparse patches. Fuss free and super quick - it's shaved minutes of my morning routine. 

Okay, so now I've remembered why I don't do a monthly favourites... IT TAKES SO LONG! Hope you've seen some products you like? Let me know what you've been loving lately.



  1. The new nails inc varnish looks gorgeous and you nails are looking in great condition. You should do a nail care post!

    1. Thanks Hannah. Good idea - I'm on it! x

  2. The roller lash looks wonderful on you, I can't use Benefit mascaras as they irritate my eyes unfortunately. I've also been eyeing up that razor, it'd be perfect for travelling!

    Love Beth @ BethBlogsBeauty

    1. Hi Beth, such a shame you can't use Benefit mascaras... I wonder what they use that others don't.

      Highly recommend the razor... It was on offer when I bought it though x

  3. The brush looks nice for bare minerals and nails inc always has such pretty nail polish colours :)

  4. I have sensitive skin and have to be really careful with what products I put on it especially on my face, I finally caved in and for the first time ordered some Liz Earle products from QVC yesterday, they were doing a today's special value kit which includes the normal cleanse and polish and the limited edition one you've detailed, I'm hoping I get on ok with it, people rave about LE a lot so fingers crossed as I understand that LE is owned by Avon and I've had problems in the past with some of Avons skincare causing my skin to react.

    1. I ordered that TSV from QVC, was such a good bundle. I hope you love it! Liz Earle is wonderful for sensitive skins, they use only the best and most natural ingredients. Let me know how you get on x

    2. I actually had my order delivered today, very quick delivery! I opened the box and straight away was hit by the aroma of the products inside, can't wait to use them now x

  5. How do you like the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue?? I've been tempted to pick it up but not sure if it will be as much coverage as I like? x

    2. I did an early thoughts kinda review, here
      and now that I've been using it for a few weeks I completely love it. It doesn't have the strongest coverage, more light to medium, so if you need good coverage, it's probably not for you. I'll do a more details review soon x


Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it. I read all of them and reply to any questions x
