What’s YOUR Latest Makeup Discovery?

Quick question – what’s your latest makeup discovery? I know I’m always blathering on about the newest beauty bits on the block, but today I want to hear your most recent ‘can’t put down’ product. Of course I thought I’d throw in what my answer would be and if I’m honest it’s a split between three things, I know, I know; a lipstick, a nail polish remover and an eyeliner. Let’s talk lips. The new formula of Laura Mercier’s Gel Lipsticks is bloomin’ marvellous – smooth, creamy and in the shade Heartbreaker, adds a pop of pink to your pout without looking too overboard. Words can’t even begin to describe my love for the finger and toe version of Bourjois’ Magic Nail Polish Remover. Think the standard one but in a foamy bit in the lid especially for toes. I know I’m just being naughty now, but Charlotte Tilbury’s Rock ‘n’ Kohl Liner in Marlene Midnight is my latest liner love. The easiest way to coax in colour when it comes to eye makeup. So over to you…


  • I recently purchased the This Works Perfect Look Skin Miracle and I LOVE it. I’m currently in Thailand so I just slap it on over sunscreen to get that “at least I have something on” look – perfect for lazy beach days (every day, haha).

  • Kiarrah

    I finally got the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and nothing beats it

  • Anna Blush

    I’ve been using and loving Daniel Sandler’s brown liner. It’s so soft and blendable, gives such natural definition x

  • I got as a gift Bobbi Brown No Smudge Mascara :). It’s pretty good!

  • Nehal Shah

    I recently got Le Blanc de Chanel sheer illuminating base. Dunno what but there is something about this product that is AWEEEEESOMMMMEEEE. I use it everyday and instantly by skin feels alive. WOW lovin it

  • larissa

    essie nailpolish in geranium, it’s perfect for warm weather 🙂 !

  • Anna

    I love the Honey Bronzer from the Body Shop. Pale as I am I thought I could never find the perfect bronzer, but I was wrong. Can’t live without it!

  • The kohl self-sharpening liner in bare from smash box has been a real eye-opener – literally! Adds so much light to the eyes and is super creamy!

  • My latest makeup discovery, and might as well now be my holy grail, is e.l.f. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder. For only $3, this product is a miracle in powder form!

  • Ana karina

    Mac Paintpots! They are just too amazing! Easy to apply and they so not budge. I used them every day. I have the colors Painterly, Groundwork, Constructivist and Eclair <3

  • Sophie Isabella D.

    Definitely the Armani Rouge Ecstasy CC lipsticks- I think you’d like them actually, Anna!

  • Sophie ♥

    This is a newfound love. A VDM recommendation actually! The Sephora #45 brush. It’s my favourite for bases at the moment and it is so soft! Love.

    I love Gosh Prime ‘n’ Set Powder – it’s a great transparent loose powder which I use to mattify my T zone and set my undereye concealer. It’s not quite as amazing as NARS Light Reflecting Setting Powder (which is incredibly finely milled and long-lasting), but for less than a tenner, the Gosh powder is a great alternative. In fact, it’s £7.99 at Superdrug atm:

  • Linsay

    MAC Sweet Satisfaction eyeshadow – think Patina but lighter and more golden… But less orange toned than All That Glitters. Its shimmery but not at all glittery – it looks almost wet when on the eye. It’s amazing! I’ve worn it every day since I got it, it makes my eyes look really blue but it’s still really effortless and not too ‘done’ 🙂

  • sofika
  • Maybe a little late on cream blushes, but I discovered Max Factor’s cream blush in Hard Candy, very similar to Bobbi Brown’s blush in Hibiscus!

    I would appreciate it if you could visit my blog for my first post! Thank you!

  • My latest discovery was the Dior Skin Nude BB Creme. Boy oh boy is that stuff good- gives me a dewy base and just the perfect amount of coverage for me. I love how it looks on my skin!

  • Esha

    Mac lustre drops in sun rush – amazing stuff ! I’m all about the dewy finish and it really compliments my olive skin tone

  • Helene

    The maybelline master drama eyeliner ! I never knew how to put eyeliner and this one is just perfect to practice, plus the quality is awesome 🙂

  • Anna

    I am in love with the Bourjois Rouge Velvets (thank you for that recommendation!) and the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge – it’s sparked a strange inner conquest to see how many different products I can apply with it in one go!

  • clairabelle0306

    I’m desperate to get a hold of that nail polish remover, my latest discovery is the Pixi Eyeliner in Oyster Glow, it’s amazing at making your eyes look more awake 🙂
    xxx Claire

  • That nail polish remover seems awesome! <3

  • Michelle Glassow Schroll

    My latest makeup discovery is the Diorskin Nude BB-Cream! Perfect for my skin and perfect for summer 🙂


      Me too! A little late to the party, but it’s awesome!

  • Nebs

    Victoria’s Secret Lipliners

  • Ashlee Martin

    my latest skincare discovery that everyone was taking about was the Keihls creamy eyecream with avacado.. its really lovely. i use it day and night.

  • Rachel

    Sorry for non-Australian readers, but the Australis Ready Set Go loose translucent setting powder is so beautifully finely milled 🙂 Instantly blurs my pores and prevents oiliness throughout the day

  • Amira NK

    The Marc Jacobs Magic Marc’er (goodness) liquid eyeliner! It’s the best i’ve tried on so far for an eyeliner noob. It goes on so smoothly and doesn’t budge! I’ve always feared Panda eyes.. This just prevents it after a looong day.

  • Isabelle McWilliam

    Bourjois Velvet Rouge, they’re perfect!

  • marie

    josie maran’s argan infinity lip and cheek creamy oil! smells great, perfect for low key days and you really don’t need much!


    Hourglass foundation/ blush brush number 2. I’m now choosing it over the real techniques buffing brush, which I’d grab if my house was on fire.

  • sarazbeautytonic

    i have the original pink one from bourjois and i always thought to myself if they had one for toes it would be great and there it it!

  • Qualea

    My latest one is a CC cream from Lumene. It ia light longlasting and jas a decent coverage.

  • Jo Fisher

    I’ve rediscovered my Apocalips in Celestial recently. It’s such a perfect colour! I’ve also been using up some freebie sachets of Rimmel’s Matte Foundation and I’m tempted to go out and buy the real thing. I really need to go out and discover more though, as I’m really stuck in a rut!

  • Laura G.

    My latest discovery is the L’Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire in Nude Ballet. It’s the prettiest beige nude — without making me look like a corpse. I pair it with dramatic eye looks or more natural looks.

  • conni boykins

    Anastasia brow wiz. Picked this up over Easter weekend and I’m in love.

  • Mine has to be The Body Shop tea tree oil foaming cleanser! I can actually feel it working and cleaning my pores. My skin feels so refreshed after I finish using it.

  • Philippa

    i’ve known about it for years, but Maybelline’s Great Lash is perfect for my completely non existent eyelashes

  • Lauren S

    i think mine would be the real techniques brushes, urban decay eye-primer and my fudge haircare – totally revolutionised my hair !

  • Isamour

    I recently started the gel polish and it’s awsome 🙂

    My fashion blog:

  • mikaylaa.s

    My newest makeup discovery is the Revlon Highlighting Palette in Rose Glow, a cheaper alternative to Bobby Brown’s shimmer brick. I love it!

  • Talisa Lauren Tossell

    I love laura mercier’s “fuchsia” lipgloss- such an uplifting product!

  • Anjola

    Nars matte multiple in Vientiane- I find it so hard as someone with a darker complexion to find a nice contour but this is holy grail status. So easy to work with as well!

  • Katie

    Japonesque Go Curl Pocket Lash Curler. Amazing eyelash curler that you can take with you where ever you go.

  • Helen Kim

    MIneral makeup especially Laura Mercier’s Mineral Powder! xo

  • Rachel

    I recently shopped my stash and unearthed a Nars gloss in Sweet Dreams–love it!

  • Jess V

    Rimmel’s stay matte powder and the revlon matte crayons (though, admittedly I’m a bit late to the game with both of them).

  • The whole Mally range, really, particularly the eyeliners and mascaras.

    Check out my ‘Free Things For Clearer Skin’ post for exactly that… tips for everyone to achieve clear, glowing skin.



  • Rebecca Parsons

    I’ve been loving the Rimmel Scandleyes Khol Eyeliner in Nude

  • The bourjois shine edition lipsticks, love the shade 20, perfect for spring 🙂


    • Oh and Max Factors golden green liquid shadow, green seems daunting but honestly I can’t stop wearing it, such a nice neutral pop of colour :p

  • leah

    mac all fired up and lady danger for bright summer colours, nars mascate is a perfect dark red

  • MAC Lustre lipstick in shade sweetie.. such a great nude!

    Silke |

  • I found some lovely Body Shop lip & cheek stain on another blog. Really beautiful shade. Highly recommended.

  • Gillian

    I’m in love with NARS ‘Gilda’ blush and recently bought the Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer – such a brilliant product.

  • Katie

    I don’t think I’ve used another highlighter since I bought Mac cream color base in shell. I rarely stick to one product for such a long time but it’s the best thing that I’ve bought all year!!

  • Julie

    i’m having a re-discovered love for bronzers! haha must be the warm weather having its effect on me. I’m using the makeup forever bronzer, it smells heavenly!

  • I’m having a moment with drugstore lip products; currently working on my stock of Revlon Lip Butters (Raspberry Pie is lovely) & Maybelline Color Elixirs (Vision in Violet..I mean, come on!). And I’ll have to throw in a SKINCARE development: Embryolisse’s Lait-Crème Concentrè is my new day-and-night moisturizer. My skin was so dehydrated by the end of the winter & needed something that was just like a big gulp of water and this did it!

  • Hayley

    I just discovered the Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner pencil in Taupe and have been using it everyday since! I love the brown one so I’m not sure why it took me so long to try another shade, but the taupe is just perfect for natural definition, especially on the lower lash line!

  • Dying to try that Bourjois nail polish remover! I’m obsessed with L’Oreal Miss Manga mascara at the moment… I REALLY wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I do!

  • I love my newest MAC lipstick in Relentlessly Red – it’s perfect for Summer, because it pulls slightly fuschia!

    I also have been loving Bioderma Sebium Pore Refiner – I’ve only had a sample tube, but it’s been great!

  • Nice picks! I’m very curious about that Bourjois polish remover. Some of my newest makeup loves are the Kevin Aucoin Sculpting Powder, Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation, and Hourglass Radiant Magenta Ambient Lighting blush 🙂

  • Alisia

    If I had to pick a new favorite, I’d pick Rimmel’s ScandalEyes. I love the mascaras and eyeliners. I especially love Rimmel’s ScandalEyes felt tip eyeliners. I received them from a freebie site and now I’m addicted to “cat eyes.” Alisia | Rimmel London #ScandalEyes

  • My latest find/obsession are the Buxom plumping lip glosses. They’re so so good. I now have four.

    • SamMcCall

      I have 19 of them! I love love love them, clearly. They’re my favorite lip gloss. And now that Sephora is carrying 99 colors, wow, how goes a girl decide what colors to get?

  • PeonyandPeach

    Definitely the Avon CC Cream, I’ve been wearing it every single day since I got it. It gives light coverage and has a really natural ‘undetectable’ finish on the skin. I also love that it has spf50 but still manages to be light in texture. I’ve also been loving Barry M Gelly Nail Paints, old news I know but new to me!

  • Tarte inner rim liner! Quicker and longer lasting than just eyeshadow, and really makes a difference in how awake you look.

  • SamMcCall

    Alterna’s 10 in 1 CC Cream for hair. It’s such an amazing product, whether you’re using it to style your hair or just running it through damp, clean hair after a shower. For me, it’s a game-changer and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

  • NEED that fingers and toes nail polish remover!!! I’m loving the Kate by Rimmel lasting finish lipstick in 16 which is a perfect pinky/coral 🙂

  • Tessa

    I’m currently in love with my new Revlon Colorburst matte balms in Complex and Elusive. They don’t sell those here in The Netherlands but I wanted them so badly that I ordered them on ebay. It was totally worth it!

  • Mrs cafobu

    Please dont laugh at me but im currently loving the primark lip crayons. Its a beautiful colour.reddy pinky coraly. And its moisturising. What more could you ask from a £1.50 product!
    Amazed and dazed lover

  • Jess S

    Soap & Glory Sunshield Superfluid. It’s the sheerest, most lightweight SPF50 I’ve ever tried – huge boon for this combination/oily-skinned gal battling the Aussie sun 🙂

  • It’s not really a new discovery, as I’ve known about them for a long time, but I just got my first MAC fluidline and I’m in love!

  • Madge on Makeup

    Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer, Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso, and YSL Rouge Volupté Shine in Corail Incandescent!

  • Jen

    Drew Barrymore’s new line Flower! I know it’s only at Walmart at the moment (not sure if you can order it) but if you haven’t looked into it, do it! It’s great 😀 I’ve been wearing her stuff nonstop since I discovered it 🙂
