5 Makup Brands Currently On My Radar

I've been decluttering a lot of things lately, including my makeup collection. However, I have taken note of some makeup products which I’d like to add to my collection and also products to replace some things that I’ve gotten rid of. I’ve already picked up a couple of things, some of which I’m going to be talking about and reviewing soon but in today’s post, I wanted to talk about some brands and which products I’ve currently got my eyes on.


Fenty Beauty 

I finally jumped on the bandwagon and tried some products from Fenty Beauty earlier this year and I’ve got to say I’ve been super impressed so far and it’s left me wanting to try more. I’ve already got my eyes on Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint as I prefer a lighter coverage tint/foundation and it’s been recommended to me a few times, the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in the shade Fu$$y which is a soft pink shade perfect for spring/summer and also the Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush in the shades Petal Poppin and/or Crush on Cupid which are both the kind of shades I’d usually go for. 


e.l.f. are another brand that are currently on my radar, especially considering a number of their products seem to have gone viral on TikTok and the fact that they’re an affordable brand because I hate buying high-end makeup and then realizing the product(s) just don't work for me, it seems like a waste of money. So I’m definitely interested in trying more from e.l.f. including their Poreless Putty Primer, Camo Concealer, and their No Budge Shadow Sticks

Essence Cosmetics

I haven’t bought anything from Essence Cosmetics for a while, there’s no reason why, I guess they just fell off my radar for a while, especially whilst I wasn’t really wearing makeup in lockdown. However whilst I was browsing Just My Look I noticed some of Essence’s latest releases and I’ve got to say, they’ve really stepped up their game with what products they offer and their packaging whilst still staying affordable. I’ve already picked up a few products and I’m probably going to go back for more soon. 


I'd never tried any makeup products by No7 until I picked up their Essentially Natural Foundation a few months ago and I think it’s a really nice lightweight, budget-friendly foundation. I’ve already got my eyes on their HydraLuminous Dark Circle Concealer and their Perfectly Bronzed Dual Bronzer which I’m planning to pick up at some point. I've actually got a referral link in which you receive £10 off your first order (affiliate link). If the link doesn't work for some reason then the referral code is KIRSTY-R7B

*Minimum spend £20


KIKO are another brand that I’ve tried a few products from in the past however there have been some hits and some misses so it kind of put me off them a little. However it’s been a few years since I tried anything from them and I have seen a few products which I think I would like to add to my makeup collection such as their 3D Hydra Lipgloss in Natural Rosewood, their Active Foundation Stick as I haven’t tried a foundation stick in ages and also their Green Me Flower Nail Oil which I know isn’t technically makeup but I think it’s pretty and I’m intrigued.
