♥ My Current (Random) Favourites ♥



As I don't get to try new products that often, I unfortunately can't make monthly favourites posts - even though they're one of the categories that I like the most in blogs and YouTube channels. However I've decided to do favourite posts from time to time, when I've got things to show you that I particularly like. Today, I've assembled a few of my most used things at the moment - makeup, jewellery, and more random favourites. I like when bloggers add more than the usual beauty products, it's always nice to see what people enjoy in general!
Anyways, my current favourites are:


~ Max Factor, Facefinity Foundation: I've featured this foundation in my beauty haul a few months ago, and I've been using it since! It's a really good product that stays on all day, with a medium coverage I'd say (it is buildable if you need more coverage), and a pretty finish. It is said to be 3 in 1, but you still have to add concealer on imperfections. Nonetheless it's a really good foundation, a friend of mine has it as well and loves it so you've got two good opinions about it ;)
~ Benefit, Roller Lash mascara: I know everybody has already said how good this mascara is, but I need to emphasise it again! The wand is tiny but gives a lot of length to the lashes, and this is what I'm looking for in a mascara. It is not targeted at volumizing the lashes I think, but it still makes your eyes pop and it's really the best mascara I've ever tried!
~ Andoer, Flat blush brush (via this link on Amazon): this brush is a real dupe for Real Technique's brushes, and a lot cheaper! It's not even £2 and the quality is truly amazing. The brush is soft, of good quality, you honestly can't tell it's not a real one. There are a few different ones on Amazon, I can't find the exact same one as mine but follow the link and you'll have some similar. You won't be disappointed if you get it, trust me!
~ Nspa, Raspberry Rich Body Butter: I bought this body butter in Asda, and it's a great product considering its price! It's only £3 and works wonders. First off the smell is amazing, so fruity and fresh; and it actually moisturises the skin very well. As you can see I've almost finished it, and it makes me want to try other smells from the brand!



~ OPI, Bubble Bath nail polish: I always love a good nude nail, and this is my favourite pink nude shade. I wear it all the time, often with glitter on top - who doesn't love glitter nails? If you want an opaque look you'll have to go with three coats, but one is enough if you just want a "my nails but better" look. 
~ Barry M, Base/Top Coat and Nail Hardener: one should never wear nail polish without a base, but I never buy expensive ones. I chose this one because it was around £3, but it's actually really good! Applied as a top coat, it makes your nail polish stay on longer, I'd say it could last around five days without chipping. I can't say about the hardening side because my nails are naturally quite strong, but even without this the product is well worth its price and is an essential to me.
~ Athena Coin Necklace (from the British Museum, London): this is so random, but I love this necklace so I had to mention it! It's a reproduction of a coin of Athens dating to the 5th century BC, depicting the owl, symbol of goddess Athena and of the city at its most prosperous time. It's a nice and different piece of jewellery to have I think, and as I love ancient History my nerdy side is totally in awe of stuff like that haha. Tell me if that's the kind of thing you like as well and that I'm not alone in this!


~ Juicy Water in Lemon and Lime: since I've discovered this drink, I swear I must have had at least twenty of these little bottles. This is such a refreshing drink to have on sunny days, it tastes so good. So good. Try it, you'll love it!
~ Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans (from the Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden): this is where I get my fangirl mode on! I went to the Harry Potter Studios on Saturday (watch out for my blogpost about it soon!), and almost went crazy. I wanted to hide in a corner and never leave. In the shop, I absolutely wanted to get a Chocolate Frog (which of course I did), and I decided to try the magical (and mostly disgusting) beans. Even though most of them taste awful, they're so much fun! I loved trying them out with my friends and guessing the flavours. It made me feel a little bit in the Potter world, and that is a lifelong favourite thing ♥
