5 Favourites: beauty products

Hey guys!

It’s been a couple of days since my last post, so I wanted to apologise for that – I was pretty busy with work, and I had a couple of things on so I didn’t have much spare time.

That being said, I’ve got quite a few posts up my sleeve ready to work on, one of them being this edition of 5 Favourites – my five favourite beauty products at the moment!

Poudre Signée De Chanel – illuminating powder

This illuminator by Chanel is my absolute favourite illuminator/highlighter. As you can tell by the photo, I’ve used a lot of it. It’s kind of expensive (close to $90 AUD I believe) so I’m unsure if I’ll be repurchasing this once it runs out, as much as I want to. I don’t know how I’ll ever be able to replace it with a different illuminator, but we’ll see.

It’s hard to get a good photo of it, being close to empty, but the colour is so gorgeous. If you have any recommendations for a similar powder for a cheaper price, please let me know!

Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade – Soft Brown

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with my eyebrows. Either they look perfect, or they look awful. There’s no in between. Luckily, since purchasing Anastasia’s Dipbrow Pomade a couple weeks ago, they’re looking better each time. This product has honestly changed the brow game for me, and while I still need a bit of practice and to work on my technique, I’m ecstatic by how well this has been working for me so far.

Dior Créme De Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm

For somebody who has as ridiculously dry lips as me, this balm by Dior is a life saver. It’s made my lips so much softer, and the improvement is noticeable almost instantly. I use this every night before I go to sleep, and wake up with lips I never used to think I would be able to have. I’ve used a fair bit of this, but for me, this is a must have and I’ll be replacing it the minute it’s empty.

Youngblood Luminous Créme Blush in Taffeta

Firstly, I really like the package of this blush. It’s plain and simple, and so easy to take with you on the go. Not that you’ll really need to retouch this blush – it goes on so easily, and just a tiny bit can be enough to have your skin glowing a rosy pink. This colour is absolutely beautiful, and this is my absolute favourite cream blush that I’ve tried.

Lush Lip Scrub in Popcorn

This is the scrub I use every night before applying my Dior balm – and let me tell you, it tastes delicious. I have a couple of these lip scrubs by Lush, but Popcorn is definitely my favourite. I haven’t tried another brand’s scrub, so I can’t compare, but I do know that these work wonders on my lips and get all the dead skin off and leave them soft and smooth.


I hope you guys enjoyed this edition of 5 Favourites. Let me know your top 5 beauty products; or, if you’ve tried any of these, let me know what you thought of them! I love hearing your feedback.

      I haven’t tried anything by Anastasia other than the Pomade, but I think I’m going to have to invest in some of those liquid lipsticks… they look amazing!

    If you are looking for a very good concealer- the Nars Creamy Concealer is great. It leaves a very dewy finish but covers the under-eyes amazingly. I’ve gone through two tubes!

      Girl you need to start a beauty blog if you haven’t already! I haven’t tried any products of Nars yet… I’m so ashamed of myself 😫 but I’ve actually run out of concealer and haven’t replaced it yet so I will try this one! Hopefully they have one pale enough to work on me 😜

      They’re amazing! I have a bad habit of biting the skin on my lips (sorry if that’s gross) so they’re usually really dry, but whenever I use the lip scrub + the Dior balm they feel so much better.

      I can’t remember how I discovered them – I think maybe I saw them on a site like brandsexclusive and fell in love with this blush.
