Monthly Favourites

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day, today I'm doing a monthly favourites, I haven't done one in a while and I've had some new favourites to share with you and these have been from the last couple months too.
Beauty Favourites
Starting off with eyes, the Makeup Revolution Palette in Iconic 3, every since buying it which was quite a while ago it has become a firm favourite of mine. I love the pigmentation and the quality of they eyeshadows and the colours are just beautiful, you can create both daytime and night time looks that are natural or smokey. For only £4 you can't go wrong and it's a dupe for the Naked 3. Next is the Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette, I've had this for ages and I digged it out of my collection and started using it again, I use the pink and brown shades and not really the greens and you can create a natural everyday spring look, the eyeshadows are really pigmented and a great formulation. I haven't been wearing liquid eyeliner as much and this Bare Minerals Lasting Line in Forever Brandy is a lovely brown shade, it's more natural and looks really nice with my blue eyes.
For blushes it's been NYC West Side Wine it's a lovely pale pink that really suits my skin tone and looks natural and it's matte. Ever since getting MAC's Soft and Gentle it has been my favourite highlighter of all time, it just gives a beautiful glow to the cheeks and I've been wearing it most days, it's definitely worth the money. The Catrice blush in Love and Peach is a gorgeous orange peach shade that is perfect for Spring and Summer, it's really pigmented and lasts really well on the cheeks.
Then for lipsticks I've been wearing, Bourjois Color Boost in Peach on the Beach, it's a peachy pink shade that is such a stunning colour and perfect for Spring, I love these lip pencils because they are really moisturising but still pigmented. Revlon Colourburst in Fuchsia is a gorgeous pink fuchsia shade, that I absolutely love it's really pigmented and lasts really well. Last up is the Kate Moss Lipstick in 08, this is a pinky brown shade that is a good everyday shade that looks great with any look.

Non-Beauty Favourites
Music- Kelly Clarkson-Heartbeat Song, I just love Kelly Clarkson's music and have been a big fan of her from the beginning, Maroon 5-Sugar I love this song and the video is great, James Bay-Hold Back The River another amazing song I love.

TV Shows- The Flash is such a good show, I've been hooked from the beginning and you should definitely check it out, Grey's Anatomy I love this show but was so gutted when they killed off a main character, I won't put who it was in case someone hasn't seen it. Catfish is another great show.

Film- Insurgent such a great film and I watched it in 3D that made it so much better, it was really action packed and I liked the twist they had on the book.

The Blush Addict Tag

Hey Lovelies, I've been super busy recently and not feeling the best, so sorry for the lack of posts and I'm going to try my best to post regularly again.
The lovely Heather from Porcelain Beauty, tagged me to do this post and she has an amazing blog so definitely go check it out.

1. What colour blush suits you the most?
For me I think pale pinks suit me best but I do like orange and coral blushes too as well as more vibrant shades but because I have a pale complexion, pale pinks work best with my skin.

2. Pressed/cream/loose blush? 
It has to be pressed blush they are my favourite by far, I always find them really pigmented and what I use the most but I do like using cream blushes in Spring and Summer they just make your skin look more dewy and fresh.

3. Favourite shimmery blush?
That's a hard choice but I think I will have to go with Sleek's Rose Gold it's such a gorgeous shade and really brightens up your cheeks. All Sleek blushes are really pigmented and long lasting that's what I like most about them.
4. Favourite matte blush?  
That's another hard one I would have to say Nars Douceur it's such a lovely everyday shade that goes with any look and gives definition to your cheeks. For a cheaper option I would say Sleek's Suede this is also an everyday sort of shade that goes with every makeup look.

5. Favourite cream blush?  
My favourite cream blush I would have to say is the Bourjois Cream Blush in 03 Rose Tender it's a gorgeous pearly pink shade that looks amazing on the skin and isn't too much.

6. Favourite drugstore blush?  
Another hard one I have quite a few favourites but I would have to say NYC West Side Wine it's a lovely pale pink that I can easily wear or Makeup Revolution blushes they are so pigmented and last really well on the cheeks.

7. Favourite high end blush? 
My Favourite high end blush would have to be MAC's Well Dressed it's a gorgeous pale pink with shimmer that isn't really noticeable and looks great on lighter skin tones.

8. Favourite bright blush?  
I don't have too many bright blushes, I prefer more subtle blushes but if I had  to pick I would probably say Catrice's Love and Peach it's a bright orangey peach shade that is really pigmented.

9. Biggest blush disappointment/regret?  
I don't have any disappointments or regrets with the blushes I have, I always research before buying a product to make sure I will like it and isn't a waste of money.

10. Best blush packaging?  
I don't own any but I think the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush packaging looks absolutely stunning and sophisticated and I definitely want to try out some of their blushes. From the packaging I do have I would say MAC or Nars it's simple and sleek.

11. What's on your blush wish list?
Like I mentioned it would have to be Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes or more Nars Blushes I only have one and definitely want more.

12. Number 1 holy grail blush?  
A hard one to choose but I would have to say Nars Douceur it's a lovely everyday shade that can go with any look I wear and give my cheeks definition and Nars blushes are really pigmented and last really well on the cheeks. 

I don't know who hasn't done this tag yet but if you haven't go for it and leave a link so I can read. I tag Alessia, Chelsea and Sophia and anyone else who wants to do it.

Sleek Rose Gold Blush

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice bank holiday, I've got a new post for you on Sleek's Rose Gold Blush*.
I've wanted this blush for ages, I've heard so many good things about this blush and it being a dupe of Nars Orgasm blush and I've had it ages but I've only just got round to reviewing it.

First off just look at this swatch it's absolutely gorgeous, I've been wearing it most days and I love the glow it gives to my cheeks and it's perfect for Spring and Summer.

Like in the name rose gold the blush is a pink coral shade with gold shimmer, that gives your cheeks a nice glow and really brightens up your skin.

I've always liked Sleek packaging it's compact and I like that they have mirrors in their eyeshadow palettes and blushes, it makes it easy to throw in your bag when your on the go.

Sleek blushes have been a favourite of mine for years and they never disappoint, they are a great formulation always pigmented, easy to blend and long lasting and good value for money.

Sleek have lots of different shades and only cost £4.49 you really can't go wrong and would highly recommend picking up some of their blushes.

What are your favourite Sleek blushes?
