It is finally here, I am 5 days late but it seems to be the way- my favourites posts are never on time! I have chosen just a few things this time so I don't bore you all to death, so hopefully you will stick with me!

Revlon Nail Polish in 'Facets of Fuchsia': This is something I have had for a while and drag out of the bag of polishes every now and again, it is one of my all time favourite polishes. It has a black base with a mixture of small and larger fuchsia glitter, which looks gorgeous on and reminds me of galaxy nail designs. I usually use it with a matte top coat as I have found this makes it look even more beautiful. This was £6.49 from Boots quite a while ago now.

Garnier Intensive 7 Days Body Moisturiser For Dry Skin with 'Mango Oil': I have included this in past favourites and there is a reason for that! I use it almost every day to moisturise by body and it works an absolute wonder. It has transformed my once scaley dry legs to become extra smooth and soft and I cannot recommend it enough. It smells divine and the bigger bottles last for ages, I have been using this almost every day for a few months now and there is still about half the bottle left. This is £4.99 for 400ml from Boots, though I found it for less as it was on offer at the time I bought it.

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream in 'Light': I have already written a review of this product here. I have been using this a great deal recently as my skin has become even more dry than usual. I find it works just like a foundation for me but it doesn't cling to my dry patches and it leaves me with a healthy looking glow to my skin. I can't say much more about this without repeating myself, but I can say I am in love with it! I got this for £7.49 from Superdrug.

Bath and Body Works PocketBac Hand Sanitiser in 'Cilantro Peach': This product isn't available in the UK, but I found it for £2 or £3 from an Ebay seller recently. I wanted an antibacterial hand gel to sanitise my hands whilst putting on my make-up and I hate the smell of the ones we have it the UK as they smell so strongly of alcohol. This is the most gorgeous peachy scent and it lingers for hours, I am so glad I bought it. I will be buying more when it runs out!

Balance Me Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve: This came free in Glamour magazine last month and retails at £12 on the Balance Me website. I wasn't keen on the smell at first, but it has grown on me now and reminds me of aniseed sweets. It is hands down the best lip salve I have ever tried. It beats my beloved Carmex by a long mile! My lips have never felt so moisturised, I have no dry patches at all any more and I have this product to thank for that! It isn't cheap to buy but I will be purchasing it when I finally run out.

Elf Studio Cream Eyeliner in 'Metallic Olive': I ordered this in my recent huge Elf haul and have used it so many times since. I have decided I will be writing a review of this as it has become my favourite product by Elf, I can easily say! I use my 17 eyeliner brush (as seen in the picture) to apply this and I love it. It stays on all day and is so smooth to apply. I love the colour, I chose it because I find olive colours go really well with my green eyes. You can buy this product from the Elf website here for £3.75, an absolute bargain as I think it will last me ages.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in 'Peach Parfait': I talked about this at length here. I have a few shades and this is one of my favourites as I find it is the best to wear for everyday. I won't talk about it too much, but it is a peachy colour with gorgeous gold glitter. You can buy this product from most Boots or Superdrug stores for £7.99.

Almay One Coat Dial Up Mascara: I have the black shade and I love it. I mentioned it in my £1 make-up bargains post here, as I bought it for £1 from Pound World. It has a dial that you can turn up to intensify your mascara look, which works brilliantly. I use it on the middle dial for my everyday look and I use it almost every day! One of my favourite mascaras by far and I can not believer it was just £1. I would go as far as to say I love it as much as my Benefit Bad Gal Lash! Not bad to say it is 1/16th of the price.

I hope you enjoyed reading my favourites post. Let me know if you have any further questions or would like to see a more in depth review! :)
