best beauty brands
Skincare: Origins has been my choice for skincare for a while now, their products are formulated with natural oils, certified organic ingredients and without parabens, petrolatum and paraffin. It's not only the great ingredients that really set Origins apart, their products deliver great results time after time and they're good at giving out samples so that you can really find the right products that work for you. 
My favourite Origins product has to be the GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser, a lightweight, hydrating and radiance boosting moisturiser that leaves skin incredibly soft. I also absolutely love Origins face masks, Out Of Trouble Face Mask contains Zinc oxide, sulfur and salicylic acid and so is perfect for bad skin days, Clear Improvement is an active charcoal based mask that unclogs pores and Drink Up 10 Minute Mask and Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask are rich, nourishing masks that keep skin plump and hydrated.

Highlighter: There's something ethereal about Topshop highlighters, they give an iridescent glow to the skin and are so pigmented and long lasting. Topshop Sunbeam is a golden highlighter that instantly brings light and radiance to the skin, making it perfect for Summer. Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish is a dreamy champagne shade that blends so seamlessly onto the skin and leaves you with a lumiescent glow, see me wearing it here.

Lipstick: When it comes to lip products, Nars Lip Pencils win on formulation, longevity and pigmentation for me. The creamy formula of the satin lip pencils apply seamlessly thanks to the pencil/crayon style applicator and the matte shades are highly pigmented and long lasting. My favourite shades are Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella, a scarlet red, Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Yu, a shocking pink and Torres Del Paine, a pretty peach coral and my absolute favourite shade, I really need to find a dupe for as this was limited edition to the Digital World Lip Pencil Coffret Set (swatched here).

I also have to give a little mention to Revlon lip products, with lip butters, matte balms, stains and creamy lipsticks, they're my favourite high street lipstick brand. They have some great high end dupes and are pigmented, fairly long lasting and have an incredible shade range. My favourite shades are Revlon Wild Orchid (a great dupe for MAC Show Orchid), Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry pie, a pretty berry pink and Revlon Balm Stain in Showy, a dupe for Chanel La Diva, see comparisons here and me wearing it here.
