Three Spring Favourites


When spring arrives I like to change up my make-up products to softer pastels, peaches and pinks. When I popped into Boots the other week Max Factor's new launch caught my eye. I picked up their new Creme Puff Blush in '15 Seductive Pink'. I'd heard it was a budget dupe for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush but since I'm not prepared to spend £30 odd pound on a blush at the moment, I can't pass comment. However, this blush has a marbled effect which is combined with a lovely soft pink colour and a light helping of glitter to help make your cheeks glow when applied. You can also use this blush as a highlight if used with a light hand. For a fraction of the price (£8.99) of the Hourglass blush, this blush provides a beautiful soft look for springtime.

Since the launch of Maybelline's Colour Drama Velvet Lip Pencils, they have been one of my favourite lip products as they are so versatile and easy to use.  They are creamy and apply to the lips so easily. As a result of them being in pencil form, I have found the application of bright/darker red colours in the collection much easier to apply than a lipstick. My favourites are 'Minimalist' and 'Red Essential'. They are £4.99 each and an absolute steal compared to their supposed high-end dupes - The NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils which are more than double the price. 

Last but not least as it's genuinely my favourite product at the moment. Bourjois recently launched some new, more pinky toned additions to their famous Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick range which are amazing. They released 3 new shades and I picked up 'So Hap' Pink' - a beautiful soft rose colour. At first I was a bit taken aback by their formula. They looked like a lipgloss but didn't even feel like a lipstick, but had the lasting power of a stain. They're very hard to describe, however I have come to adore these. My favourite thing about these lipsticks is the fact you can wear as much or as little as you like and build up the lipstick from a stain to create a full on matte lip. These retail at £8.99 currently.

What are some of your favourite spring products?
