3 New Products I've Been Loving










Eco Tools Bronzer Brush/Chanel Bronze Universal/Benefit Fine One One

Hi everyone, hope you've all been okay, sorry for the delay in posts recently, I was uninspired for a little bit and then I've just been really busy but i'm back now and have loads of new posts lined up for you all over the next few days so hopefully that will make up for it. For today's post I thought I would share with you a small haul of some products that I've been loving lately. Some of these were presents from my lovely boyfriend for Valentines day & I actually picked up the Eco-tools brush the other day and I've been loving it. Also whilst I was away I reached a massive 500 followers on my blog and i'm really happy so thank you to everyone who's supported me, i'm really overwhelmed by how many people now read my little old blog and it really does make me very happy. Also I just thought i'd say i'm sorry for being a bit snap happy again and adding way too many photo's to this post, since i've got my new camera I just can't help myself haha and new products always look so pretty!

Chanel Bronze Universal - I love this bronzer, it's amazing. I've been eyeing it up for such a long time & I was so happy that my boyfriend got it for me for Valentines. It's a gorgeous product and I feel so posh pulling out my first Chanel product! It's such luxury and glamorous. The packaging of this product is obviously lovely & really special and I actually just want to keep it out all the time and decorate my room with it! (haha i'm such a sado!) But it's also a lovely product. It's the perfect contour color for me and it really compliments my skin tone. I really like the fact that it's not too dark for my paler skin and is more of a natural bronzer color compared to some of the other bronzer's I've tried recently. You get 30g of product too so it's going to last such a long time, you only need a teeny tiny bit because it's so pigmented so I will be surprised if this doesn't last way over a year or more. It's perfect to just bronze the whole face or contour, it also smells amazing! I know that's a really random thing to notice but it smells really nice and it feels really lovely on your skin as well. Application is also really easy, I like to buff this into my skin with the Real Techniques Contour Brush and I think it looks amazing. I think this is one of my favorite make up products ever & I love it. I would really recommend this product to anyone, it's perfect.

Benefit Fine One One - This product is also amazing, I'm not much of a blusher girl but because this is a cream product it really works and I actually really like it. The cool thing about Benefit's fine one one, is the fact that it's a contour color, a blusher color and a highlighter color all incorporated into one stick which means you simply place the stick at the middle of your cheek and pull it upwards and have your contour, highlight and blush color done it one quick sweep. It looks really natural and nice as well and it really adds a lovely pop of color to your cheek. I was so curious to try this simply due to the fact that i've not seen a product like it at all and I really think that it's such a cool product. I love the name and the whole concept behind the product and I can't wait to experiment with it more.

Eco-tools Bronzing Brush - I think i'm a bit obsessed with brushes at the moment, I decided to pick up0 this brush so I had a nice brush to use with my new Chanel Bronzer and I felt like this would be really good. I've never tried eco-tools brushes before but i've always heard really good things about them and I also love the ethics and concept behind the brand, with it behind a brand that is environmentally friendly and also is cruelty free. I'm really happy with this brush, it's really dense and soft and is really good at buffing in product to the skin, it's perfect for powder and also works with the bronzer really nicely too. It was a really good price too at just under £10.00 and feels like it will last a really long time so, so far i'm really impressed with this too.

Thank you all for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post, If you want too see a review of any of the products i've mentioned let me know in the comments section below & I'll talk to you all soon! xxx
