I saw this tag a little while ago on Shona's Blog and i thought it was a really good post idea. It's really interesting to see what brands people consider their favourites as i personally love different brands for different reasons, as i think most brands have their own different strengths. So i thought it'd be interesting to share with you three brands i really like and three favourite products from each brand.

Bourjois is a brand that I've only really delved into within the last 12 months and it has definitely impressed me. Bourjois are a fantastic brand to look to when it comes to bronzer as they never fail to impress; the 'Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer' is possibly one of my all time favourite bronzers, it's great for contouring or for just bronzing up the face and adding some colour and the colour is perfect for my fair complexion.

Another bronzing alternative from the brand is the 'Bourjois Bronzing Primer', so technically it is a primer for bronzer but i personally like to use this as a cream bronzer. Despite looking insanely dark in the pot it blends into the skin really effortlessly and it looks really nice and natural - and both of these bronzing products smell incredible.

My last favourite from this brand is the 'Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Orange Punch'; it's a nice glossy lip product that feels really moisturising on the lips, it has great colour pay off and this colour is just beautiful, it applies more of a peachy orange and isn't as bold as you think it might be, it is the perfect colour for spring/summer!

Benefit is a brand that I've loved ever since my interest in make up started to grow; they have a wide range of amazing products and their quirky packaging draws me in every time. One of the very first items i purchased from Benefit was the 'Bella Bamba' blush and it still remains a firm favourite, it's quite a bright pink but it looks so nice on the cheeks and the built in highlight adds dimension to the face.  - it's such a beautiful blush and i love wearing it!

I've dabbled with many highlighters but the one i always make my way back to is 'Benefit High Beam' it took me a while to get to grips with it and finds ways to make it work for me but it's one of my favourite highlighters to use; it's a pink based highlighter which i find works better for me as it's less harsh again my skin tone and the glow looks much more natural!

My third favourite from this brand is probably no surprise 'Benefit They're Real Mascara' i adore this mascara and the results it gives my lashes; it leaves my lashes so long and the little ball shape at the end of the wand is perfect for separating them too. I've gone through a couple of these and its a mascara i will continue to repurchase as i just love it.

Mac is a brand that I've always had a soft spot for; it's may not be one i buy from often but it is definitely one i go back to time and time again. It was once the must-have brand amongst bloggers but now i feel it has almost been outgrown by some as they've discovered even bigger brands. 'Mac Paint Pot in Painterly' is a product that i never knew i would love as much as i did, it's one id always been keen on trying but it never occurred to me just how much id love it. It's the perfect base product whether its be worn under eyeshadows or even just to be worn alone!

'Mac Eyeshadow in Satin Taupe' is another favourite of mine and it's a eyeshadow that i go back to time and time again; it's such a beautiful and pigmented taupe shade and it a staple shade for anyone's collection. It's a great colour to wear in the crease to compliment a more lighter shade but it's also a really lovely colour to wear alone too!

My final product favourite from Mac is of course their lipsticks. In particular, 'Mac Lipstick in Creme Cup' - it's the perfect everyday pink nude shade, it compliments any eye look and its great to wear for both day or night. If there was one shade i would recommend getting from their lipsticks it would be this one as it's such a staple shade that would suit everyone.

 So those are my three favourites from three different brands! What are some of your favourite brands/products?
