Guest Post: 5 Top Products


Hi, I'm Vicky and I run a blog called Daily-Hoot. I was absolutely thrilled when Hayley asked me to be a guest post for her, so I couldn't pass up the chance and agreed straight away. I'm not going to lie it took me a while to figure out what I was going to talk to you all about, but with some advice from Hayley herself, I decided to talk about my top 5 favourite products. I have chosen my favourite from these categories, skin care, eyeshadow, mascara, lipstick and nail varnish. So, here we go:



Above it's a photograph of my make up bag, not massive, but big enough to store all my make up in. The bag was £3 from Primark, and has two compartments. One I am using to store my little travel size brushes and the other the rest of my make up. I don't own a lot, but I don't need tons, I only use what works. The rest of my make up is in boxes underneath my bed.



Okay, so the first product I want to talk to you all about is my favourite skin care. This is the Visibly clear: Gentle exfoliating wash. I was recommended this by Jessie who runs http://www.thebodeboutique.com. I have extremely bad skin. I'm starting to realise it isn't because I don't take good care of my skin, I think its more about hormones and bad luck. Anyway, I purchased this at Wilkinsons, for £2, and I have to admit, I fell in love with it straight away. It has little microbeads to help you remove dead skin cells, reduce spots, and cleanse pores. It also removes trapped dirt, excess oil and even makeup. Its also makes your skin feel refreshed without drying it out. This is always a bonus because I have face cream but I don't want to be consisting smothering myself in it because my face wash it causing my skin to be dyhatrated. I totally recommend it to anyway looking for a new face wash. You can buy it in Superdrug, Boots, Wilkinsons and even online.



If you read my blog then you have already seen how much I rave about MUA and especially about the 'Heaven and Earth' palette. I just love how natural the colours are. I really like the browns, the gold and the pale colours. I really enjoy the feel of the eyeshadow, and how long it stays on. I was very impressed with the palette. Before buying anything, I like to have a look around other peoples blogs to see how much they like the product and is it well worth the money. I totally adore this eyeshadow palette. As you can see it's well used and I have used every single shade. You can buy it from Superdrug for £4. Its a great investment ;)


I am a massive fan of No7. Yes, it's more expensive than I like to pay but with No7 you do get what you pay for. I had a lot of vouchers for money off No7, so this is one of the products I got £3 off. So instead of £9, I got it for £6 was was great. Needs two layers but its the best mascara I have ever use, doesn't make my eyes itch because it is hypoallergenic. I need to wear make up that has nothing in it. The brush is slightly thicker than the average mascara which is designed to give you that intense volume like it says on the product. Its doesn't 'clump' together like some mascaras I have tried in the past, I will defiantly be purchasing again. 


Now, I recently have purchased my very first MAC lipstick, but I'm going to leave that to talk about on my blog, but I couldn't help but share with you my favourite MUA lipstick. For just £1 this is an incredible lipstick. In fact I love this so much, I had bought myself another one to keep in my bag for work. Its in shade-13 and I'm beyond impressed with it. It stays on really well, even through eating and drinking and its a beautiful colour. I like the design of the tube as well, even though its cheap, I love the way its presented. Its comes in a lot of different shades, so please check them out.


I have already done a post on my blog about my favourite nail varnish, but as this was a favourites post I knew it had to be mentioned. If you haven't read my post, I bought this in American Apparel about a year ago when I purchased my first American Apparel hoody in the same colour. It was pretty much as I paying for my hoody, I saw the nail varnishes to my left and I bought the first colour that caught my eye. This is the colour 'Port'. I like how easy it is to apply, needs about two coats and last for about a week. It was £7 when I bought it but recently checking the website its gone up to £9. Even for £9, I highly recommend it. I just can't get over how beautiful the colour is and its perfect for Autumn.

So there you have it my top 5 favourite products that I own and love. I hope you've enjoyed reading and I haven't bored you too much.
