Top 5 Beauty Products // Collab w/ Tattooed Tealady

Sadly we have now come to the end of mine and Sophia's Top 5 Collaboration posts! All good things must come to an end though so we thought we would finish off the series by talking about 5 of our favourite beauty products. Much like the last collab post we did, Top 5 Blogs, it has taken me a little while to decide on my 5 beauty products to feature. I have come to a decision though so, here are my picks!

Once upon a time I used to rave about MUA's Every Lash Mascara but since I got this bareMinerals Lash Domination Mascara in Intense Black* I've stopped using the bargain buy! This more expensive mascara, unfortunately for my bank account, is much better and I really have loved it over the past few months! The brush is really unique, it is a spiral shape that enables you to catch every lash. It gives my lashes lots of volume and length, it is very easy to control how much of both elements you achieve though which I like as it means it is a great day and night mascara. I love everything about this, apart from the price!

My next pick is a face product, one of two that I have chosen. This is the GOSH CC Cream which I rave about all the time, whether that be on my blog or in Superdrug with my friends! I only need and want a light coverage foundation and this CC Cream fulfils that need perfectly. It gives me a little coverage, meaning my freckles still shine through and my skin still looks natural and almost makeup free. It blends beautifully as well which adds to its natural appearance. I really like that it gives my face a bit of a glow, not a shiny/oily glow, a fresh glow that brightens up my face. For me this really is the perfect foundation!

I had to include a Lip Crayon/Balm Stain in my Top 5, it would be wrong not to! This is the first Lip Crayon I ever had and it was a gift from my parents last year at Christmas. It is the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey. This shade is a pink nude with hints of purple undertones, it is quite difficult to explain the shade but I really love it for an everyday natural makeup look. It stains my lips whilst moisturising them and giving them a decent amount of colour. My lips don't feel dry at all when I have this on, yet it still stays on longer than a gloss but not as long as some lipsticks. It is my most expensive lip crayon but it is still my favourite and most used!

I've picked another face product, this time a concealer which happens to be Collection's Lasting Perfection Concealer. I don't think I need to say much about this other than the fact it is perfect! This gives such high coverage for the bargain price tag that comes with it. It doesn't sit in fine lines and it doesn't cling to dry areas either. It blends easily and covers everything from spots to dark under eye circles. I will continue to repurchase this for a long time I think.

Finally my last pick is a lip product, this is probably my favourite MAC Lipstick, especially in the colder months. This is MAC's Syrup Lipstick which has a lustre finish, my favourite finish out of them all. This is the perfect lipstick for those who aren't brave enough for a bold lip colour yet they still want something a little different. It has purple and pink tones in it but because of the lustre formula it sheers out a little making it very wearable. You can see the product on my lips here!

Those are my Top 5, why don't you let me know one of yours below!

Don't forget to go over to Sophia's blog and take a look at her picks as well.
