Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Body Crème

Jo Malone is one of my favourite brands ever. The smell as you walk into Jo Malone is just heavenly. My mum first shed light into the world of Jo Malone to my family and ever since it has been an endless love affair. This body lotion has the most gorgeous smell and when applied lingers all day meaning no need to wear a further scent. It is so so moisturising and sinks into the skin quickly without feeling greasy. Jo Malone products are also the perfect gifts not only because of the amazing quality of products but the beautiful complimentary packaging thats included in the price. This comes in at £50 on the Jo Malone website.

Mac Strobe Cream

While strollinginside Mac in Edinburgh airport. I discovered this item. And let me tell you I was not disappointed. I find it quite hard buying illuminators as some of my previous ones glow for an hour then the glow is gone. But this is definitely not the case. This product is beautiful!! I wear it under foundation and then apply it to the high points of my face. It brightens my skin beautifully and creates such a subtle, soft glow that lasts all day. It leaves skin looking dewy, illuminated and refreshed, what more could you want in a product? This product comes in at £24.50 on the Mac website.

Mac Pro Longwear Concealer

This concealer is by far one of the best I have ever used. Its creamy, longwearing and has great coverage. Its also very light weight and acts great as an eyeshadow primer. My sister first bought this concealer a couple of years ago and since then this has became a staple makeup product in my family. This comes in at £18 on the Mac website and is most definitely worth it.

Nars Creamy Concealer

Again another amazing concealer. Its much thicker in consistency but still very blendable. It has great coverage and the colour options are great. This product works wonders and is a definite must in your makeup bag. This comes in at £22.50 on House of Fraser.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Touch

This multi award winning product deserves all the credit it can get it. This product is absolutely fabulous for covering dark circles under the eye and brightening the skins complexion. The pen brush is so convenient and the consistencey blends really well into the skin. This is the perfect product for tired skin. This can be purchased for £25 on Boots.com.

I absolutely love this product. It is a little pricey coming in at nearly £40 on Cult Beauty but it is honestly completely worth it. Its such a great investment as you get 6 amazing, versatile colours which last for ages. My favourite colour has to be Fawn which is just the perfect contour shade to create those natural looking cheeckbones. Only a little product is needed as the pigmentation is so good. If contour is your true love then this is an absolute neccessity.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

This foundation is simply a dream. Its lightweight, smooth and creates such a flawless base. It has a medium coverage and looks subtly glowy on the skin. Out of all the foundations I have tried this one is by far my favourite. It comes in at £37 on Debenhams.com but the beautiful finish it leaves on the skin is completly worth the price.I hope you enjoyed this post on these fool proof products that I love.
