The Beauty Game Changers

We all have come across products that have changed our beauty experience and I thought you may be interested to hear a little about some that have changed things for me. 

Starting with the foundation, I've openly said in the past that I've never really been a foundation kinda gal. I'd use a BB Cream from Garnier if I was feeling fancy but if not I'd just use a concealer as I'd always find that they just didn't sit right on my skin, or of course, that they'd be too dark. Enter the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation and everything changed. Now I'm in love with the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation*, but the Rimmel is just as good for a much smaller price, but the colour match with NARS is just that bit better... You can see from the image, it's really quite different. 

Primers generally just don't work well with my skin, that was until I found this one from Illamasqua, I fell in love with the sample size and just couldn't wait to get my hands on the full size. Now I have it and the Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer* is mine and I'm in love. 

I've always been a Bobbi Brown Mascara kinda gal and I used to always go back to their Bobbi Brown Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara. That was until the Bourjois 1 Second Volume Mascara* entered my life and I definitely don't feel the need to purchase high end mascaras. A drugstore favourite that I definitely can't see going anywhere anytime soon. 

I can be so lazy when it comes to body care and I'd never really found  body cream that I really found worth using. The Body Shop's Shea Body Butter is perfect and you all need it in your life. Obsessed. 

Who's heard of an under-eye mask? A mask for your under eyes... I definitely hadn't until I picked the DHC Revitalising Moisture Strips for Eyes up in BeautyMart (I mentioned them in this video!). This product is life changing. It's so hydrating for your eye area, you can literally see and feel the difference afterwards. Perfect for those days you're really tired, maybe a little hungover and need a pick me up. I'm so in love I'm thinking about bulk buying... But that just wouldn't be good for the bank balance. 

All these products have had a certain effect on my and they're some of my absolute current favourites in the beauty world. 

What are your beauty game changers?
