6 Brands I Gravitate Towards

Finding brands that I love and trust is something that doesn't come easy to me for many reasons and although recently I have been trying to broaden my horizons with new brands and their products, there are definitely several brands I gravitate towards. 

I am a person of habit and so when I find a product I love, I love it hard. I become so comfortable with my little routine and will maintain it for weeks, months, and sometimes years. 

The first brand on my list of those I love and trust is NYX, namely their eyebrow and lip products, and is one which the 12 year old 'macbarbie07' lover in me has a little fangirl moment in the shop about, just because there is an American brand in the UK. Not only is it so amazingly priced, more likely than not, if you are lusting over a product from a high-end brand, you will find the perfect dupe from NYX of the exact same quality, if not better. 

Next up is a brand I've mentioned a few times before and I would happily buy so many more of their products. Much like NYX, The Ordinary is so reasonably priced - a theme you'll see throughout this post. They have made ingredients that have previously only been available in high-end moisturisers and serums available to almost anyone's budget. Long gone are the days of hopelessly longing for celebrity skin, especially since Kim Kardashian herself uses this brand. 

Essie. I could leave it there to be honest. Essie is one of those brands that I will probably love for the rest of my life and I'm not ashamed to say it. Everything about their nail polishes I love, they go on so perfectly, and have such a lasting finish. They don't end up with that gloopy consistency after 2 months unlike most, and never leave those strange bubbles I have experienced a lot in my varnish hunting days. The colour selection is sensational and their gel top coat is to die for. Just try it!

Another one I love for its quality is Tanya Burr Cosmetics. I really admire how much work is put into each and everyone of her products and how devoted she is to the brand. I am always up for supporting the work/brands of creators and this one is without a doubt one of the best I've tried. I use the 'Selfie Sculpt' on my eyebrows everyday I love it and it is the perfect dupe for the Bobbi Brown 'Perfectly Defined Brow Pencil.' The packaging is always beautiful, and the again, the pricing is brilliant. 

On to another content creator(s) brand, and a very well known one at that; Real Techniques. I mean there is no question as to why they are so popular, their products are amazing, and I'm most definitely not the first to say that. Whenever I feel like I need (want) new brushes, my first port of call is this brand. I love the fact that you can physically buy them in a store as supposed to online and  know what you are getting and they are accessible to everyone. My personal favourite and the one I have used for foundation for about 2ish years now is the 'Expert Face Brush;' because it is just so good.

Finally, Lush. I don't think I would trust any other retailer with bath bombs and I'm glad to say I don't have to. Not only do they create amazing products, they are so committed to what they stand for by not testing on animals, launching their 'Charity Pot' campaign and doing their bit to promote ethical behaviour, to name a few. The customer service is outstanding and even though every product is so affordable, I always feel like I am treating myself whenever I use them, its such a novelty.

What brands/products do you always gravitate towards?
