Current favourites

Long gone are the days when the only beauty product I used to buy was Maybelline Dream matte mousse. I remember buying one of the darker shades because I thought it made me look really nice and tanned, completely oblivious to the fact the rest of my body was absolutely albino because I hadn't discovered fake tan yet! *Shudders*
Nowadays, I am a self-confessed spendaholic. I just love trying and testing new products so I have decided to write a post about my current favourites. Starting with the Holy Grail of moisturisers- Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel. I have written about my love for this before, so I will try not to ramble on again too much. The gel formula just glides onto my skin, and like some moisturisers, doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy either. As a victim of combination skin, I find it hard to find products that don't add to the oiliness of my skin, and this gel ticks all the boxes. I will be re-purchasing again and again and again.
Next up we have Redken extreme anti-snap leave in treatment. I was given a few Redken products by a salon in Sheffield after one of the stylists burnt my scalp with bleach (!!!) I squeeze a small blob of it into my hands and then massage it through my towel-dried hair before I blow and style it. I have definitely noticed a difference since I started using it, my hair feels so much stronger and thicker, which is a huge thumbs up for my destroyed bleach blonde barnet!
Barry M Gelly nail polish in 'Blueberry'. After spying this on my toenails both my housemates have asked to borrow it! The pastel blue is bang on trend and I am a big fan of the glossy gel effect.
YSL Baby doll mascara. I actually got this little tester when I bought YSL Shocking mascara. I love the teeth on the brush; the tiny bristles coat each lash and give a dramatic, big eye effect. As I wear false eyelashes every day it may seem pointless splashing out on expensive mascara but this one is perfect to use on my bottom eyelashes. I'm very tempted to buy the normal size when this tester runs out.

Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick in number 20. I cannot believe I haven't taken a photo of the actual colour of the lipstick when I took this photo?! It is a bright fuchsia pink and I think the colour complements my skin tone and brightens up my miserable black wardrobe.
One of my favourite smells in the world, Roberto Cavalli. The product description says the perfume 'is designed especially to suit the colourful temperament of the iconic Cavalli woman, whose strong-willed, sexy and glamorous personality instantly attracts attention wherever she goes.' which is obviously just me down to a tee. Joking! But it does smell divine. I like to wear Marc Jacobs 'Honey' in the daytime, and save this for evenings.
Nars 'Orgasm'. I couldn't not buy this after hearing all the rave reviews! The pink has glimmers of gold throughout which suits all skin types. I like wearing this alone or mixing it with shimmer bronzer if I want to bring out my tan a little more. I can't wait to try out more NARS products, I am hearing great things about 'The multiple', and if it's good enough for Millie Mackintosh...
Does anyone else swear by any of these products?
