Current Favourites

current favourites

I didn't want this post to be an August favourites because some of these I have only recently started liking, but some of these have been my favourites since the beginning of July. But I haven't done a monthly favourites in a while so I thought I would merge them altogether and do a Current Favourites!


I'm going to start off with a new mascara I bought recently which is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. I picked up the waterproof version because funnily enough out of all my mascaras none of them are actually waterproof. I had quite high expectations for this mascara because of all the great reviews that it has had, and I was not disappointed! This mascara is incredible, in a matter of seconds my lashes are fully curled and super long and look amazing, and that is with only one coat! I think the brush is really good and so is the formula! However bit of a pain to remove but I think that's just what most waterproof mascaras are like.

My next beauty favourite is The Body Shop Instablur Primer. Again, like the mascara, I had quite high expectations due to the high reviews. This primer is really good if you have oily skin as it really matti firs the skin and keeps your makeup on and prevents it from sliding off. So as it has been summer (well currently it is pouring with rain and the sun is nowhere to be seen,) this primer has dealt with the heat very nicely I think. It has kept my face matte and made my makeup last a long time, which is what I hoped it would do so it has ticked all the boxes for me!

The next favourite is a skincare product, it's The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil. This stuff is incredible! You are supposed to apply it to any blemishes you have and it will help to make them disappear. And it definitely does. When my skin broke out for a bit, I just applied a tiny amount, you really don't need a lot, of the oil before I went to bed and the next morning the spot had reduced in size and redness. I would really recommend this if you struggle with finding a product that deals with blemishes as it really does the job!


I've been listening to so much music lately, especially when I was on my school trip in China, so I have a fee favourites! (Also ignore the fact that in the picture I used my iPod which is about 5 years old so it looks very different to the music on apple nowadays!)

Years & Years - Communion (specifically these songs - Eyes Shut, Ties, Shine, Without, Ready For You, Border)

Taylor Swift - Speak Now (old but it's one of my favourites! Specifically these songs - Enchanted, Long Live, Sparks Fly, Dear John, Better Than Revenge, pretty much every song actually.)

Selena Gomez - Good For You
The Weeknd - Can't Feel My Face, The Hills
Disclosure ft Sam Smith - Omen


When it was very sunny and when I went to China, sunglasses were such a necessity! The ones I have been wearing are actually from Primark but they look really cool especially with the gold and the matte black frame.
