The Beautiful Bluebird | Guest Post!

 Hi everyone, my name is Roxie and I usually blog over at The Beautiful Bluebird. I'm beyond excited to guest post on oliviacheryl.com today! I don't know about you but I love to read posts that indulge my nosiness. My favourite posts are usually the ones that allow me to peek inside a bloggers handbag, wardrobe, home - anything really! I especially love nothing more than poking around someone else's makeup collection. So today I thought I'd share with you all the goodies I've been carrying around with me this past week. I've been using my trusty Naked on the Run all-in-one set from Urban Decay constantly for the last few months, but I thought I'd best put this away for when I'm next travelling and bring back some of my old favourites before I run it out completely! The bag itself is a cute blush pink and gold polka dot creation from Zoella Beauty that reads "Just say... YES!" and is availble at Superdrug. So let's take a peek inside...

 Let's start with the lips. I have a slight addiction to buying lip balms, salves and butters, I think I have about 7 tins open and scattered around the house. My current favourite is Nivea's Caramel Cream lip butter that I was lucky enough to pick up from Poundworld. If you can resist licking this off your lips, this butter helps lips to stay hydrated, soft and kissable all though the colder months. The butter also comes in original, blueberry blush, vanilla & macadamia nut and scrumptious raspberry rose. Next up is my No7 High Shine Lip Crayon in Delicate Pink which I received in my 25 Beauty Treats advent calendar last year. It gives a lovely glossy finish and is very hydrating with an added subtle blush of pink to the lips. And finally my MAC lippy in Vegas Volt, my all-time favourite lipstick gives an intense colour whilst keeping my lips moisturised. I love the coral shade as it gives a stunning pop of colour and is very long lasting.

 For my face I rely on four spectacular products I have previously reviewed; High Beam a satin pink highlighter to enhance my complexion, Boi-ing, my industrial strength concealer (perfect for blemish-related emergencies), my Bourjois Cream to Powder Blush in Rose Tender and my Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place foundation. To be honest I'm not sure why I insist on carrying Double Wear around with me as it's so long lasting I never use it throughout the day, I guess I've just got into the habit of throwing it in there too!

And finally for the eyes I've been using my sample of Benefit's new curling and lifting mascara, Roller Lash, and my Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eyeliner from my On the Run set as I've lost my Smashbox Limitless liner which is also one of my faves. I don't tend to take eyeshadows on the go with me!

As I said I'm a nosey one so if you have a similar post leave me a link below and I promise to check it out. What are some of your makeup bag essentials? Have you tried any of my beauty must-haves? Thank for reading!
