I can't say that there are any big surprises in this post: I've been loving many of the same things over the last couple of months and so at some point or another I think that all of these make up bits have popped up on here.  

I'm still so in love with the Urban Decay Naked Smokey palette, I've been using it non stop and I especially like how you can use it for daytime looks as well as bold, dark smokey eyes.  I would go as far as to day that, despite the name, it is actually a really good all-rounder and well worth the investment!  
Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation needs no introduction!  I won't go on any more about it as I know that it has featured on this blog more than a few times, but it really is my number one base and the new formula suits my skin even better than the old one did. 
I have uncharacteristically bought hardly any nail polishes lately, but when I had a trusty No7 voucher to spend I bought this gorgeous one from the Gel Look Shine range in the shade Grey Mist.  This shade is super chic and the perfect neutral colour for autumn/winter. The formula is thick, really glossy and fairly long lasting too so I'm really impressed with this and would definitely buy another from the collection.  
Benefit Sunbeam is staying in my make up bag whilst I struggle to let go of summer.  I love using this as a finishing touch after bronzer, it does the same job as a highlighter but with a beautiful, natural looking golden glow. 
For my brows I have been using this little Maxfactor Smokey Eye Kit, which is made up of three eye shadows and a dark brown shade for filling in and defining brows.  The shade is a perfect match for me and I only use the smallest amount too.  The eye shadows are also really handy for keeping in my handbag and for doing any touch ups throughout the day - I especially love the highlight shade which of course goes just below my brow bone. 

Have you tried any of these products?  Let me know what you have been loving lately! xx

  3. I've tried to UD Naked Smoky Palette and I love it - Benefit Sunbeam sounds really lovely too!

  4. I've just bought that LM foundation! Looking forward to trying it because I loved the older one. That Max Factor palette is great - I was looking at them in Boots recently! xx


  5. I use High Beam by Benefit and love it, especially considering I'm more of a powder highlight girl! It gives me such a beautiful glow. x

  7. No7 Nail Polishes are honestly one of my favourites! No one really rates them either, but they last so long :) x
