Something about Spring always makes me want to freshen up my makeup and beauty products. Last time I posted my current makeup favourites was back in October 2009 so I think it's high time for an update. It's funny to see which products stayed on the list and which have been abandoned.
Back in 2009 I was originally delighted with my discovery of MAC but I soon found that their foundation and blush broke out my skin. I've since switched to Everyday Minerals for both of these products, which is better for my skin and comes without the hefty price tag. I still use the trusty Avon tinted moisturiser, L'Oreal mascara, YSL highlighter, Inglot primer, Body Shop lip tint and still a fan of Sugarbaby tanning products!
The latest brand that I've tried and really love is Benefit, though I do wish it wasn't so expensive in Australia. Stay Don't Stray, Boing and Watt's Up have become part of my daily makeup routine since purchasing them last month. I also recently bought this cute little cosmetic bag from Target; it was being sold as a going out/races bag but I love it so much more as a makeup case.

The team behind Anastasia Beverley Hills sent me this Beauty Express brow kit recently, which I'll be reviewing soon. I love the idea of the kit and do neglect my brows sometimes so it should come in handy.
