Beauty Brands I Stay Loyal To
Having been using makeup for years now, I have tried a number of different brands and products, each which are unique in their own way and each which I've loved for different reasons. However, when it comes down to beauty order or some online browsing, I always find myself looking at and buying the same brands over and over again. For me, when I fall in love with a product from a brand, I immediately want to try more and find myself testing more of their products each time. Whether it's skincare or makeup I'm looking for, my go to destination is Space NK, online or in store. Stocking over 100 brands, Space NK offer a huge variety of products from your go to foot cream to the red lipstick that will change your life. All 4 brands I find myself going back for are stocked at Space NK, making it far too easy to pick up a few too many bits! These brands deliver long lasting lip lacquers, firm favourite foundations and heavenly highlights, lets talk favourites, recommendations and beauty business.
NARS was one of the first high end beauty brands I tried and I've been a loyal customer ever since. My addiction started after picking up their Orgasm Multiple Stick which has turned out to be one of my most loved beauty products ever due to how versatile it is and just how beautiful the soft rose pink is. With the majority of NARS product recommendations being Laguna Bronzer, it was one I had to pick up and for me, this was the real game changer. Having been provided with sculpted cheeks that screamed sun kissed skin, I knew it was only looking up from here and continued to add to my collection. You're probably all thinking what actually makes me so loyal to NARS and why do I love the brand so much? The products are of such high quality, everything is rich in pigmentation, the choice of colours for almost every product is outstanding and they have the biggest range of products I've ever come across. What ever product I'm after, NARS have got it. Lip pencils in all shades and finishes, primers for all skin types, blushers for all occasions, nail polishes for every season and bases for every girl. You get the gist, NARS rock.
Laura Mercier is my go to girl for bases, she has got them down to a T and I've been using her award winning Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser since day one. Being one of my first ever bases, I am still getting through tubes and tubes of this stuff. It's the ultimate base for skin that glows and looks healthy, something ever girl needs in her life. As I was such a fan of her TM, I wanted to try some more products and opted for the lipsticks which are so incredibly creamy. These things apply like a dream and when I say they glide onto the lips, I'm talking blocks of colour melting onto the lips, adding a shot of moisture and locking in that pigment. Not only has Laura Mercer smashed the lipstick and base category, her eye shadows are to die for. The soft baked powders press seamlessly into the lids and add a soft pop of colour that lasts for hours and gives eyes that extra sparkle. I'm after the Camaflague Concealer that is forever being spoken of next...
Never have I fallen in love with a brand as quickly as I did with Kevyn Aucoin. After regularly visiting Bath SpaceNK and forever swatching and trying the products on me, I knew it was time to get stuck in and try the brand. Every product I've tried from the brand has had 10/10 reviews from me and I haven't found products from other brands that even come close. The one you will forever see me photographing and going on about is the Candlelight and Sculpting Creamy Glow Duo, hands down ladies and gents, this is the best beauty purchase I've ever made. It isn't often I buy a product and use it everyday but this little baby hasn't left my makeup bag. Kevyn's creamy products are the best I've ever tried and don't compare to any other cream blush / highlight / bronzer out there, I've tried and tested many but always find myself going back to my KA. Tonsoleil is the perfect peach blush for holiday skin that beams with coral hues, the formula melts onto the skin like my highlight and blends beautifully when all 3 are used together. Another of their product that no other beats, is the Precision Brow Pencil, never have I found a pencil that is feather light, the perfect colour match and never looks un natural. I won't ever be trying another pencil! Eyeshadows, lipsticks, tinted moisturisers, mascaras, bronzing powders, you name it, Kevyn Aucoin stock it and ace it. This is my brand of the year and one I will continue to buy from over and over again.
