Recent Beauty Favourites

I'm back after a little break, and kicking things off with my beauty favourites that I haven't been able to put down, or do without.

Starting off with a product that has been a favourite of mine for over a year at least! the Cocoa Brown tanning mousse. This is the newer darker shade and I love it so much more than the original.
This darker shade shows up a little more on my skin tone while looking natural and streak free, I have spoke about this before (HERE) if you want a more in-depth review on why its so amazing. I feel like quite the self tanner pro now, I have tried so many on the market and this still is in my top 3 and the cheapest of the bunch. If you are new to tanning this is just what you need.

I haven't been able to get enough of the Carli Bybel palette by BH Cosmetics, it's just amazing. I have had this for a while now and its by far my most used palette and that's saying something!
There is not one single colour in this palette I dislike, I use it all.. I love how the 10 shadows are all golden, mauve and purple tones which go together perfectly. Then there are the 4 highlighters at the bottom and blimey do they pack a punch.
The formulas are impressive and highlighly pigmented, it's such a versatile palette. I went on holiday recently, and picking what makeup to take was a complete mission - I decided to take this because I knew I could create so many looks with it and the added bonus of 4 highlighters to choose from.

Next up is the Milani baked blusher in Luminioso I picked up from the amazing site Cocktail Cosmetics (HERE) I was looking for a nice summer blush and I had heard lots about this, so decided to give it a try while buying my Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks from there. It was love at first use, the colour is perfect, the formula is brilliant and a good price point too for the quality you get. Luminioso is a gorgeous coral/peach shade which looks amazing with a bit of a tan, it really perks your complexion up and gives you a healthy glow.

The Ro's Argan Body Conditioner is just magical! It honestly makes your skin feel and smell unbelievable. Pricey but so,so worth it. It has a lovely rose/argan scent to it, I apply it onto wet skin while still in the shower, leave it on for a few minutes, rinse and then pat my skin dry with a towel. After my skin feels like silk, I cant be without it now.

Everyone is loving liquid lipsticks at the moment especially me, and if you know me or have seen my Instagram (@zoelou_) you will know I'm partial to a good nude haha! My favourite one by far is this one by Kat Von D in Bow and Arrow. It's beautiful and works so well on my sin tone, its not too pale nor is it too dark and brown its perfectly in-between and everything I want in a nude lip colour. The formula is one of my favourites by far and I love the sleek packaging. I did buy this from the U.S Sephora site, but word on the street is that its coming to the U.K in Debenhams stores September time..YAY!!!

Finally, I'm a little late to the party on this one though I think..But the Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins moisturiser is a miracle worker. I was shopping at Bicester Village a month or so ago and needed a new night time moisturiser so decided to try this one, and boy am I glad I did!
It smells beautiful, absorbs straight away into the skin and when I wake up my skin looks hydrated, plump and glowing, so glad I discovered this one.

Have you tried any of these? What products have you been loving recently? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks for reading,

Love Zoe x
