Sleek Contour Kit in Light

Welcome to the first monthly favourites post of 2013! This type of post seemed to be pretty popular at the back end of 2012 so I might as well carry on the growing tradition! If your new to my blog. then first of all thank you for following me, I appreciate it so much; This particular post is where I tell you a couple of products and a certain blog that I've been really loving this month. Make sure you scroll down for all the information. Right, less talk, more action...

AUSSIE'S AUSSOME VOLUME SHAMPOO 500ml // £5.99 - Every single Aussie product I've tried I've been really fond of, in my eyes they can simply do no wrong. They're prices aren't too bad either! I have really thin and flat hair so this gives it the right amount of volume, a thick illusion and leaves it smelling beautiful.

SOAP & GLORY'S BREAKFAST SCRUB // £9.50 - I received this as a present a while back but this month it's been extremely helpful as the harsh weather conditions have damaged my skin. Despite having a smell that makes me want to gobble it all up, it's been fantastic exfoliating my dry skin to remove all the dead skin leaving it beautifully soft after moisturising.

BENEFIT'S 'MY PLACE OR YOURS GINA' 10ml // £19.66 - Don't be afraid of the price, this was one of four mini Benefit fragrance bottles I received in the 'Crescent Row' set for Christmas. As the scent's described as 'woody oriental' I never thought I'd take to it, but I really have! With a top note of pink pepper & bergamot, it's amazing to wear on a night out!

MAC'S MINERALIZE SKINFINISH NATURAL //£21 - I'm happy to say that I'm over the moon with this product. Being one of the first products purchased from MAC, I was worried that it wouldn't live up to it's reputation. This is perfect to set my liquid & cream foundations and to wear as light coverage when I don't feel like wearing too much make-up.

SLEEK'S FACE CONTOUR KIT // £6.49 - I received this for Christmas after hearing fantastic reviews about it and it's the ideal kit to start with if your new to contouring. The dark powder (my shade is light) is brilliant in the hollows of your cheekbones to slim your face and the highlighter gives you a beautiful glow when catching the light. This is a holy grail product that I'd repurchase again & again.


My blogger of this month is the beautiful Coco from thebeautymilk! I have been in awe of her blog since the minute I followed. She posts in-depth reviews about an array of beauty products that includes swatches and how the products actually look on her face. She deserves all the followers she gets, so go check out her blog!

Well that's it for another month! There's just a week left to enter my MAC Lipstick giveaway here and I'm also selling a few bits on eBay here. Do you use any of these products? What are your thoughts? Let me know, thanks for reading!

  25. I'm a masssssive Soap & Glory fan and am currently loving Sugar Crush body scrub but I've heard even better things about The Breakfast Scrub so I'll definitely be picking that up! I too absolutely love MAC Mineralise Skinfinish Natural (and all of the MAC products I've tried... and that's a lot!), and have desperately wanted the Sleek contour kit for ages, sounds perfect! Also love the blog you featured here! Great post :)
