The last couple of months I’ve been testing out some new beauty products that have been in my collection a while. The St. Moriz tans have aways been my budget fake tan of choice until I started using and falling in love with Fake Bake. I preferred Fake Bake purely because it was a developing tan meaning you put it on, wash it off a couple of hours later and the tan lasts roughly a week. When I saw that St. Moriz had introduced a developing tan range at a budget price I had to try it. I used this when I went to Parklife back in June and really put it to the test in the rain all day everyday the whole weekend. When I first applied it I fell in love with the colour, it was the exact colour I love in a fake tan, not to warm toned but not to grey toned. I didn’t find that it lasted as well throughout the weekend compared to fake bake but considering it is a fraction of the price it is still an amazing tan.

The Nuxe oil which I received in a Birchbox a couple of months ago has been put to the test on the ends of my dry, frizzy and split ends. I applied this to damp hair and although I’m sure it moisturised the ends of my hair and stopped any frizz I felt it made my hair slightly greasy and a really oily texture, maybe I applied to much, I’ll preserver with less product next time.

Next is the Olay 7 in 1 eye cream, initially I absolutely loved this product, I really struggle with dark under eye circles but this cream has such a light and brightening consistency I felt it really helped with the darkness. Unfortunately, I’m not sure whether this is due to the cream I started to get a really dry patch underneath my right eye so have put this product on hold to see whether this was the cause.

The new love of my life when it comes to mascara is the Benefit They’re Real Primer and the Benefit They’re Real Mascara combo, I’ve never given into the hype of Benefit’s mascara’s but when I received these, again, in a Birchbox a couple of months ago I obviously had to try them. Honestly, for someone with the straightest and shortest lashes in the world, the only time I have ever been happy with my eyelashes is when using these products together!!

Finally, what sort of blogger would I be without trying out a Tanya Burr Cosmetics product? I opted for the Hollywood eyeshadow palette because these are the sort of colours I am more likely to wear and there is the most useful all over the lid bone shade which is the perfect base for any eyeshadow look and I reach for this palette every single day for this shadow alone.

Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?
