Better Beauty Across the Pond? Top European Face Products - Collab with Short, Small, Sweet

August 11, 2014

Today's post is a collab with the amazing and lovely Ru from Short, Small, Sweet. This is actually the second in a month long series, if you missed the first one it is here.

Each Monday I will be telling you about the best/my favourite British and European products in certain categories whilst over on Ru's blog she will be singing the praises of her favourite American products.

This week we are covering 'face' products:


I have lots for this category! I love my loose Lily Lolo blusher, my Honey Pie minerals blusher is pretty much perfect as well. 

I haven't tried them myself but Benecos seem to have a great range of affordable blushers and if I didn't already have more than I can ever use I would certainly buy some!
I also really liked the look of some of the Studio 78 blushers that I saw in Content in London. I think Amber from Amber's Beauty Talk is really happy with hers, read her review here.


I don't have many to talk about here, you may already know my favourite bronzer is Chai Cupcake from Brija Cosmetics, closely followed by their Hoola Hoop bronzer. 

I did own the Lily Lolo Honey Glow Stripes which are beautiful however the website states that they may contain carmine which I personally try to avoid now.


High Lighter

Again, a difficult category for me, I was not initially aware of any British of European brands that even sell a high lighter! After some online searching I discovered an affordable one from Lavera but of course I haven't tried it myself. 
I do like my Lily Lolo Shimmer stripes as a highlighter, although you have to use a light hand with these!

That's it for this week, next week you can look forward to finding out my favourite European eye products. Once again, make sure you pop on over to Ru's blog to read her post.
