#6monthsedit : Favourites | Holy Chic

It was definitely time for me to go back to blogging basics and throwback with a favourites post. We are already 6 months into the year which is ridonkulous but I thought I would go through my beauty favourites of the past 6 months. I will try and keep this as text little (is that even right) as possible so I don’t bore you. I will explain myself for each product in 5 words J

Cocoa butter: light, moisturising, leaves skin feeling smooth

Nspa instant blur primer: oil based, slightly dry but an amazing primer

Garnier under eye roll on: refreshes eye particularly in the morning, reduces puffiness, I look more awake

E45 cream: helped out with problem areas, very thick and greasy all over but works well applied to problem areas under primer

Palmer’s night renewal cream: thicker consistency but great as an overnight treatment for the skin

L’Oreal skin perfection: blogger craze, removed makeup really well, stung a little if I got into my eye but did a great job

Simple toner: gentle, smooth, removed oils and dirt

Kleenex shine absorbing sheet: practical, removes oils but doesn’t disturb makeup

Colossal volume mascara: great for a more natural look, adds great volume and decent length

Maybelline gel liner: easy to use, post about it here:

Benefit they’re real: great length and gives amazing lashes but a tough little bugger to get off

Mua eyeshadow, copper colour, long lasting, separates a little but think primer

Miss sporty brown eyeliner: great for a natural look, would be good for summer

Eyeko eyelash curler: gives a great curl, I LOVE IT!

Angled eyeliner brush: has made my life 10x easier, post here:

Model and co black eyeliner: works well, doesn’t last all day but does the job, cult classic


Victoria’s secret mango temptation: sweet but not sickly, lasts all day, a little on the pricy side but a must have

Parade perfume: sweet but not sickly, scent lingers and nice in the morning

Argan oil heat defence spray: reduced amount of split ends, kind to hair

Argan oil hair treatment: leaves hair shiny, soft, smooth, silky, nourishing, repairs hair

Vo5 ultimate hold hairspray: lasts all day, holds a curl, weather resistant

Acetone free remover: gentle on nails, not potent smell, healthier nails

Coco butter hand cream: thicker consistency but does the job

Inecto coconut hand and nail cream: nourishing does the jobs, smells great and I MUST GET MORE

Barry M in Mushroom: great for colder months and really natural looking

Miss sporty gold glitter: nice decal/ring finger design but annoying to take off

Company coral polish: really nice colour (must find a similar one) but chips easily and doesn’t last long but I love the colour

NYC Spring Street: gorgeous bold colour last just over a week with only tiny chips, vibrant too

Carex hand gel: east to use pump, smells nice and I have clean hands

Whoa we are finally at the end. I hope that was short and sweet enough for you guys yet enough detail about the products.
