2017 Favourites!

Hey everyone! I got really in the mood to blog again so after ages, here’s a new post! 😂 

As I haven’t posted in a long time, my makeup collection has grown a lot this year and I’ve been trying a lot of new products! I thought I’d share them all with you and let you know which ones I love and which I don’t and give a little review! Sooo onto the Makeup! ☺️ 


Let’s start off with probably the best item in 2017! The Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Collab! I think by now, everyone owns one of these 😂 But it’s just amazing! I bought this palette when it first launched on BeautyBay in the UK as I wasn’t prepared to pay US shipping and customs. It’s officially my favourite palette ever, the quality is amazing, the pigmentation on the colours is unbelievable and not to mention, the colour selection is unreal! Definitely get your hands on one of these if you haven’t already. 



Next up is a highlighter palette which is actually from Primark! It’s the PS...Bronze Highlight & Glow palette. I think this is amazing! It’s such a pigmented Highlighter and I love and strong glow, never subtle! As I have such fair skin, I can only get away with using the first white shade, sometimes the second pink one, but I always go for the first. I know I only use one colour in this palette and it seems like a waste, but as it’s from Primark, it’s suuuper cheap, so basically worth it! 



As you know, Morphe is amazing for eyeshadows and I’d say it’s probably my favourite eyeshadow brand. I have soooo many Morphe palettes, but this one that I got this year is new and amazing. It’s the 25A Copper Spice palette. The golden shimmery shades called my name and I couldn’t deal! This palette claims to be limited edition, so don’t waste any time!!



Oh. My. God. I have no words for this product! This foundation is the best I’ve ever tried! It’s the Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation and it came out recently and I was blown away! It’s super full coverage and flawless. It’s quite a new one on the market, but I’d recommend it to anyone. Also the shade range is great as I have very fair skin and the lightest shade actually works for me! 



This next product is super high end and was definitely a splurge which I put off for so long but I’m super glad I bought it! I’d heard everyone rave about this product for so long. It’s the Marc Jacobs Omega Bronzer. Marc Jacobs... I know, screams high end! It’s my first ever MJ product but I’ll definitely be buying from them again. It’s a super flawless bronzer that I use in my daily routine and I highly recommend. 



Next we have two Jeffrey Star Skin Frost Highlighters. I know Jeffree Star Cosmetics is a very controversial brand but I personally love his products. The black one is his collab with Manny Mua in the shade Eclipse and the silver one is from his newer collection. It’s in the shade “Crystal Ball” from the Summer Chrome collection! I love these as they’re super pigmented and such light shades, which I need. 



I have been OBSESSED with this powder! It’s the Maybelline Fit Me powder in Translucent. It’s a white setting powder but it comes off translucent on the face. It’s extremely good at setting your makeup and making you matte, which I like. I have literally been using this every single time I wear makeup and I’d recommend it to anyone! 



Next is quite an unpopular product that I don’t hear many people talking about. It’s the VDL Lumilayer Primer. This is such a gorgeous Primer and it’s super glowy and gives you a gorgeous base for your foundation. I would say it’s very similar to Macs Strobe Cream. 



This Primer is insane!! I bought this after watching Shaaanxo use it in a YouTube video and she raved about it. It’s the Urban Decay Self-Adjusting Primer. This makes your skin look absolutely flawless and really smothes it out and makes it look perfect. It makes the perfect canvas for the rest of your makeup and really helps blur our redness and even skin tone. 100% recommend! 



This is the Smashbox X Casey Holmes collab. Casey is my all time favourite YouTuber and I’ve been watching her for years, so lf course I had to support her with this. This is a highlighting trio called the Spotlight palette. It’s super pigmented and gorgeous and there’s two shades, Gold and Pearl. The one I currently have is Gold. This is a super staple highlighting piece in any makeup lovers collection. 



Another YouTuber Highlight collab is the well hyped and loved Becca X Jaclyn Hill in Champagne Pop. I think everyone owns this by now but it’s a super gorgeous colour. It’s highly pigmented and soft on the skin and super glowy. 



This has been my all time favourite Primer this year and it’s the YSL Touché Éclat Blur Primer. This Primer is very high end and has gold specs throughout which you can’t see when it’s on the skin. This primer is extremely soft and makes your skin feel silky smooth and ready for foundation. It creates the perfect base for your foundation to apply flawlessly. 



This has been a recent favourite but it’s one I had wanted to purchase for a very long time. The LA Girl Pro Conceal was a recommendation from Shaaanxo on YouTube. She loves this concealer and raves about it and I can see why. It’s a great Concealer with good coverage that gives flawless skin under your eyes. It’s also extremely cheap so definitely worth it. 



A more higher end Concealer that’s been well loved is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. This Concealer is weightless and gives full coverage and gets rid of any bags or discolouration under the eyes. It’s slightly more expensive than the previous one but still affordable at £17. Definitely recommend if you have a little more money to spend. 



The final product that I’m going to talk about is the Maybelline X Gigi Hadid collaboration. If I keep going, I’ll be here forever 😂 This is a drugstore product but it’s a lot more pricey. It’s the Lash Sensational Mascara. They originally have this Mascara in their collection but this is limited edition packaging which I adore. I love the wand of this Mascara particularly as it’s curved so coats all your lashes easily. Definitely my all time favourite mascara. 

Soo that’s all I’m going to mention in this 2017 Favourites! I hope you enjoyed this blog post and if you did then please leave a comment and share it around ☺️ Also leave me suggestions on other blog posts or tweet me @topshopzoella

April Glossybox Unboxing!

Hey everyone!

For Christmas last year, my boyfriend got me a yearly subscription to the beauty box service called Glossybox! I love this beauty box and it's got to be one of my favourites, I've always wanted to be subscribed to it. I thought I'd unbox it with you all and show you what I got in my box and let you know a little bit about each product! Enjoy!


~~~~~~~~~~~


The first product I got in my box was from a brand that I'd actually been looking at a couple days prior! I saw it on Twitter and decided to have a look on their website. It's a SportFX Definition Duo Eyeliner Pencil which I find a great concept. At first I thought it was just a brown which I wasn't overly keen on as I prefer black, but was willing to give it a try for a more subtle look. I then realised that it was double ended and has one black and one brown side which I love! I'm really excited to try this out and it claims to always have a "sharp micro tip" which is a plus. This brand is aimed at products that you can use at the gym to and as this eyeliner is waterproof, it's perfect for all you people who work out! Sport FX is a brand that aims to bring out multi-use products, just as you can see from this one. This is a full size product and it retails for £9.99. You can find it at SportFX.com.
~~~~~~~~~


The next product I recited was from the brand ModelCo. which I personally love. It's a contour stick which actually looks a little too dark for me! I have very pale skin and when I swatched this product, it also looked a little orange. The chunky contour crayon claims to make defining the cheekbones easy and precise and to glide over bare skin or foundation. It can also look good as an eyeshadow or a lip colour for darker skin tones! This product retails for £17 and can be found at Modelcocosmetics.com.
~~~~~~~~~~


This next product smells and looks amazing! It's so cute and dinky too I love it! This is a Love & Hand cleansing gel and it reminds me of the bath and body works ones. I get a kind of citrus vibe from it and I love the packaging, it smells so good! It's a great size to carry around in your pocket with you and for on the go. Obviously a daily hand gel is a must have! This hand sanitizer also leaves hands feeling lovely and soft due to the tiny pearls which burst on application to hydrate hands. This product retails for only £2.90 which is great and can be found at en.mercihandy.com.
~~~~~~~~~~

The fourth product I received in the box is the Rodial GlamoLash Mascara XXL. Now I know we all love dramatic lashes and we don't want to hold back, so this volumising mascara isn't going to be any different. This mascara is said to be extreme! It's a smaller size and you only get 6ml of product. The long wear formula is jet black and leaves lashes super sized but soft. I'm excited to try this out and I love having dramatic lashes but I just hope it doesn't make them clumpy. The full size product retails for £24 which is expensive for a mascara and can be found at Rodial.co.uk.
~~~~~~~~~~~

This final product is my favourite and I can't wait to try it! I love trying new shampoos and conditioners and this product is supposed to replace both of them and do the job. This is the Deliwash Cleansing Conditioner by the brand Elgon which I admit I've never heard of before. This is a quick to use product which combines the cleansing action of a shampoo and the hydration of a conditioner in one product. This product claims to suit all hair types which is amazing! It gives less lather than a shampoo but is to be used just the same. This product retails for £14.50 and can be found at Elgoncosmetic.com.
~~~~~~~~~
That's all I received in my Glossybox this month and I hope you enjoyed this blog post! If you got a Glossybox this month, comment and let me know what you received in your box and if you got anything the same or different.

My Holy Grail Product!


Since I've bought it, I've been obsessed with The Body Shop Honey Bronzer! I've wanted it for ages so when I went on holiday I finally picked one up and I'm soo glad I did! Loads of beauty gurus have said this is the best bronzer for pale skin and I totally understand and agree.

The packaging on this product is really eye catching and I really like it, It's one of my favourite packaging on any product I own! It's a nice pale bronzer and it's not muddy or dark at all. When you open it, the bronzer is patterned like a honeycomb which is so beautiful. 

I will definitely repurchase this product as it's soo worth the £13, which is a really good price! It's totally affordable so if you can get your hands on it, you should check it out! There is more than once shade but I got the lightest one in 01. 

Let me know if you have this product and what you think!

Zoella Beauty Tutti Fruity Collection!


New collection;

Now, if you know the YouTube community, you're sure to have heard of the YouTube sensation Zoella eg. Zoe Sugg!

Last year, she brought out her very own beauty collection and it sold extremely well! This year, she has come out with a whole new amazing collection! She named it the Tutti Fruity Collection!

The first one was very beautiful and the scents were amazing. No one though she could top her first one but I really think she has! She has come up trumps with this summer collection and its even more amazing than the first!

The scent is more summery and it's got more of a summer vibe to it. The colour scheme is slightly different and she's added some new product as well as adapting the first ones.

Her new Tutti Fruity range includes;
Kissy Missy Lip Balm
Let's Spritz Body Mist
Candy Cream Body Lotion
Fresh Fizz Bath Bomb
Scrubbing Me Softly Body Scrub
Cosmetic Purse
Foam Sweet Foam Shower Gel

Let me know what you have from the new range!

Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzer!


When I was in England on holiday, I bought my first ever Chanel product! I've seen and heard loads of beauty gurus and YouTubers raving about this and I've been dying to try it out!


The packaging is absolutely lush, Chanel has got to be one of my favourite packaging! Its so designer and makes you look really fancy when you have it!

For a Chanel product, I think £32 was a very reasonable price for this bronzer. I was willing to pay and I think it was money well spent!

This is now my go to bronzer that I use for contouring! I've never had a cream bronzer before as I tend to stick to powders but I'm amazed with how natural this product looks!

Its not too dark which is something I worth about with bronzers as I'm very pale and its hard to get one without making it go orange or look muddy.

This product really amazed me and I'm totally in love with it! Its a big container so should last me a long time but when I do eventually run out, I will definitely repurchase!
