Latest Beauty Additions & Why I Can't Stop Using Them

Latest Beauty Additions & Why I Can't Stop Using Them
I love playing with makeup. Whether it's a brand new release or a cult favourite, nothing gives me more joy than taking a new product out of it's box and trying it for the first time. Now, I only tend to keep products that I really love so I manage to rotate my collection a lot because it's not so big but every now and then, some things stick. In this case, six things have stuck and here's why.

Radiance Reveal Concealer, Bourjois | I've definitely over mentioned this product but I just can't live without it and everyone needs to know it exists. It's creamy formula sits so well over almost all of my foundations and looks so natural when blended with a damp sponge. It does tend to crease but it's nothing that a soft sweep of powder doesn't solve. It has such a beautiful dewy finish and I reach for it more than any other concealer in my drawer. 

Hangover Primer, Too Faced | No joke, my skin has never looked as good after a primer as it does when I use this. I mentioned in my summer glow post that I use it with and without makeup because it just brightens up my face so much and adds a lovely glow to my complexion. It's not your usual slippery, silicone primer. It's a thicker consistency and almost feels like a sheer cream - My foundation glides over it like a dream and doesn't separate. 

Killawatt Highlighting Duo, Fenty Beauty | I picked up the duo in Lightening Dust and Fire Crystal and at first, I wasn't sure how I felt about them. Fast forward a month and now that my tan has faded, I absolutely love them. Lightening Dust is surprisingly natural looking and I actually like wearing it with just a tinted moisturiser as well as a full face of makeup. Fire Crystal is just stunning. I didn't think I'd get the wear out of it but it's perfect for a night out and I'm so excited to wear it over Christmas and shine like a bauble. 

De-Slick, Urban Decay | From the first time I tried this, I was absolutely in love. I'd already tried All Nighter which didn't really work out for me but my first night out using this, I couldn't believe how much my makeup didn't budge. It's worked wonders with every product I've used, even the most slippery foundations, and it also works well for foiling eyeshadow and making a powdered face look less cakey. I. Love. It. I actually cheated with this one - I've been using De-Slick for years but this just happens to be a new bottle.

Ka-Brow, Benefit* | As I mentioned in my brow post, this has to be the creamiest, most easy to work with and best colour matched pomade I've tried so far. I didn't know how I'd get on with this at first but it glides on like a dream. I've used it with the brush included and some other ones from my collection and it works wonders with every single one. I highly recommend trying this if you haven't already!

Cloud Paint, Glossier | I have to be honest, I wasn't entirely sure how I'd feel about this product to begin with but since trying it over the past few weeks, it's found it's way into my every day makeup stash. I touched on it briefly in my Glossier haul but to mention again, I've been using this on my cheeks for a subtle rosy glow and also as a stain on my lips. I'm planning on picking up some more shades in the future because they really are so versatile.
 I hope you've enjoyed hearing about the makeup I've been loving recently. What have you recently added to your beauty stash?
