My current top 5


Today I... am going to talk about my current top 5 favorite products. I was going to do a post about my all time 5 favorite products, but while I was trying to come up with those I realized that that was a mission impossible. There are too many products I like and and they keep changing, thus "current top 5". ;) So let's get started.

Fine ONE ONE- Benefit Cosmetics
While there are many Benefit products that I like a lot, I have to say that this one must be my favorite of all the ones I have tried so far.

Benefit describes Fine One One as a "sheer brightening color for cheeks and lips". I personally have never used it on my lips before but I love it on my cheeks as a blush.

The way you apply it is as easy as pie, you take the stick with the highlighter color facing up and run it over your cheeks, blend it a bit with your finger and your good to go.

Next to the adorable packaging of the product I just like how easy it is and what a great result it gives me. I used to sometimes struggle a bit with where exactly on my face I need to put the blush. Now I don't need to think about that anymore because the highlighter color in contrast with the nice red and the coral color accentuates my cheek bones and gives more shape to my face. I really like this product and I highly recommend it.

Mint Julips Lip Scrub- Lush
I bought this Lush Lip Scrub about two months ago and it was my first ever Lush product. I often times find the scents of Lush products overwhelming, however this scrub I fell in love with in an instant.

You have to know that when it comes to mint I am a bit of a freak. I love, love, love the smell and taste of mint and if I see something that has to do with mint I usually buy it.

Now this scrub said it is a peppermint/chocolate scrub so I wasn't too sure if I would like it since I don't normally like beauty products that smell like chocolate. However the chocolate scent is so subtle that I really didn't mind and the smell just made me wanna buy the product. I tried it straight away when I came home from shopping and loved it. It leaves your lips so, so soft and it actually tastes fantastic. If you like After Eight you will love this ;)

Steamcream
I had never heard of Steamcream before, but when I was doing some shopping at Urban Outfitters after Christmas they had it on sale and I really liked the packaging so I ended up buying it.

When the order finally arrived at my house I read the little brochure that came with the cream and found out that Steamcream is an all natural, vegan cream which is handmade in the UK. You can use it for your face, body and hands and supposedly it is very moisturizing.

I can definitely confirm that. The cream is very rich but still absorbs very quickly and makes your skin feel super soft and moisturized. In the winter I also used the cream on my face, but I do feel like it might be a bit much now that it's getting warmer. Still I very much enjoy this cream and what I really like is that the tins come in sooo many different designs. The designs are all limited editions and keep on changing and sometimes they even work with famous designers to design new tins. You should check out their website.

essie- Status Symbol
There really isn't much to say about this nail polish. It was the first essie nail polish I bought and I can easily say it was worth it.

I have used around half the bottle until now and every time I am impressed by how long it lasts on my nails.

I know that essie has a whole lot of nice colors but the reason I like this one so much is that it is quite hard for me to find a pink nail polish which looks nice with my skin color. I have quite fair skin so a lot of pinks are too bright or so dark that you wouldn't really consider them pink anymore. This one goes great with my skin color and still is a pretty bright pink.

La vie est belle- Lancome
I have been in love with this perfume by Lancome. It am not going to try to describe this scent to you, my description wouldn't even be able to give you an idea of what it smells like. Just go out and smell for yourself.

I really like sweet perfumes, so if you are someone who does not like sweet perfumes you won't like it. If however you do like sweet perfumes I am sure you will love it.

Since I have this one I haven't touched the other perfumes I have and I think it will stay that way for a while. ;)

Well that's it. I hope you enjoyed this post about my current top 5 products. Have you tried any of them? What do you think?

Let me know if you have any comments or questions. I am excited to hear what you guys have to say.

Talk to you soon,

Lindaaaa :)
