3 Products I'm Loving Recently

[ad contains gifted products] I'm actually super proud that these three products are not only new, but I am actually shopping my own stash, well with two of them anyways. 

I received this Dr Paw Paw Ultimate Red Multipurpose Soothing Balm product in my ASOS Advent Beauty Calendar, and to be honest never really found the need to use it and thought it was a bit gimmicky. However I used it non stop for 10 days whilst I was away. I suffered with some really odd dry patches around my face before I went on holiday and thought I'd give this a go instead of taking a powder blush with me and I loved it. It's a multi-purpose product and I did actually use this for both my blusher and as a lipstick (because it was far too hot to carry a lipstick around in my handbag!) As you can see from the swatches below, it's quite red-toned, but when I used a stippling brush, it completely blended into such a lovely natural flushed colour. I was so surprised how smoothly this went on and blended in both on my lips and cheeks. I don't think I'd used a product with Paw Paw in it, but I really turned to love it (reminds me of the Jungle Book song). 

Secondly, I ran out of an eyebrow brush and I have found that even the drugstore ones are so spenny, considering they barely last that long. I like a thin-crayon type one and as I've been a fan of e.l.f cosmetics at the moment I thought I'd try out the e.l.f Ultra Precise Brow Pencil. I absolutely loved it, and find it so easy to use. I got the shade 'taupe and it works really well as it's neither super light or super dark and has a  nice mixture between blonde and brown coloured undertone to it without it being grey.  I also love the little spoolie that comes with it as well and for £5 you can't go wrong! 

Lastly, I think this came in a Cohorted Beauty Subscription Box which is the Manna Glo Illuminator*. Usually I don't tend to go for primers or illuminators with pink undertones, as I've got quite a red tone to my skin anyways, but didn't want it to just sit in my beauty products box. Once I'd finished my much loved Becca Backlight Primer I gave this a go and have really enjoyed using it. It doesn't make me look too pink or red at all and just adds a perfect shimmer and glow. 

Let me know in the comments below a couple of products you've been loving in the comments below and if you've tried any of these!
