My Current Beauty Favourites

I rarely write favourites posts and I've never written one about beauty products alone. Thus, for my blogging challenge of posting for seven days (that you can read about HERE), I thought I would talk about my current beauty favourites.
I have been enjoying these nail varnishes recently: Essie's Turquoise and Caicos and Barry M's Coral nail varnish. Turquoise and Caicos reminds me of the sea and where I normally wear bright colours, it's a nice middle between being bright and dark. Coral is awesome; when I look at it, it reminds me of sweets. It's such a juicy colour!

I had never tried anything other than Barry M nail varnishes from their collection until this product came into my life. Barry M's black liquid liner is awesome. It's easy to apply and dries quickly.

Hair-wise, I have finally joined in on the Batiste dry shampoo hype. It's been all around the blogosphere and the real-world-osphere and I'm so chuffed that I finally put it in my basket as I did a little supermarket shop. It makes myself believe my hair is nearing the end of its first-day-wash (which is FAB) and smells like coconuts. I have also been enjoying the VO5 Heat Protect Styling Spray. I bought it last year and I've finally started using it. I am very careful when it comes to using heat on my hair and although I never know how to tell whether a heat protecting product is working or not, VO5 smells delicious and so assuming it's helping my hair (my hair does seem in good condition), the smell makes it a top notch product. I'm not good with smells but I'd explain it (probably wrongly) as a musky, fruity scent and I get lovely whiffs of it throughout the day. I have never had a problem with the pump which makes it all the more fab-u-lous. 

I'm not sure what the name of this perfect No7 eye shadow is but I love it. It's lightly shimmery and the reason why I love it is that it's discreet but pretty. This photo (only this one - the lighting was awful) is slightly edited and so I'm not sure if the colour looks different but it's a grey and bronze colour and it isn't over-the-top. I love that I can wear it to any sort of occasion.

This picture doesn't do justice to how pretty the colour is. I have Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey. I really like it and love it for going out to parties and it feels lovely on the lips. I think I will wear it a lot more in the summer with a tan. I really love this, though and I'm going to buy another when I can! It doesn't take a lot to make my lips pink and I am so glad I found the range when I was in Boots.

These smell gorgeous! I bought Soap & Glory's mini creamy body wash around Christmastime and I've almost used it all. It smells so fresh and clean, mixed in with many sprinkles of sweetness. I am also adoring Ghost's Sweetheart body moisturising lotion. My mum got the perfume for Christmas and gave me the lotion that came with it (thanks mum!). It smells so sweet and I love wearing it when I've got nothing to do instead of wasting perfume or adding it with perfume to go out.

Benefit's They're Real mascara will always be a favourite of mine. It lengthens and thickens my eyelashes perfectly for a normal day or a day out.

Do you love any of these? What have you been loving? I'd love to know!

The Girl in the Moonlight.
P.S. Sorry about the poor pictures... As usual, I'm working on it!
P.P.S. Yay to Noelle for reviewing Essie's Mint Candy Apple as I recently bought it and can't wait to use it. I'm sure it's going to be a new favourite.
