Colours of the Rainbow TAG

The Colours of the Rainbow TAG has been circulating the beauty community in the past two months, ever since TalkBeckyTalk created the TAG. A bunch of my favourite YouTubers have done the TAG so I thought I may aswell, even though I technically wasn't tagged. It counts that Jodik79 tagged everyone in hers, doesn't? 

Anyway, the tag is based on the rainbow. Obviously. Basically, you choose a product (or, in my case, a couple) that matches each colour of the rainbow and then just talk about it. I just thought it might be a good way to show you some different products in my collection, both new and old.
Taylor Swift Enchanted Wonderstruck | Entourage Cosmetics Lipstick in Attention* | Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in #107
I've been loving the Taylor Swift Enchanted Wonderstruck perfume at the moment (although don't get me wrong, I love the original too). This has been a fairly recent addition to my perfume collection and I've been reaching for it a fair bit recently. It wouldn't be right to talk about red beauty products without featuring two of my favourite red lipsticks; Entourage Cosmetics Lipstick in Attention and Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in #107. The lipsticks are very different in tone but both are equally beautiful depending on the look you're going for.
Essence Cherry Blossom Girl blush in Asian Sensation | Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous | Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Coral Reef
l'm quite fond of orange products so it was a little difficult to choose a couple (yes, I could've picked more). Because I often wear quite gold tones on my eyes, I find that Essence's Powder Blush in Asian Sensation is the perfect 'go to' blush for the days where I can't decide what I want to wear on my cheeks. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous is a fantastic lip colour for the days where I want an orange lip but I don't want it as vibrant as LUSH's Liquid Lipstick in Strong. Finally, on days where I feel like my lips are washing me out and I need a bit of colour, I reach for Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Coral Reef. 
the Balm Balm Jovi Rockstar Palette | NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Corcovado
If I could only recommend one make up palette to people it would definitely be theBalm's Balm Jovi Rockstar Palette. This palette is absolutely amazing and has some of my favourite eyeshadows in it. I'll definitely be review it soon! When I want to wear a gold eye, my favourite base is NARS' Soft touch Shadow Pencil in Corcovado. It's one of the truest gold bases I've found and I think it's so beautiful.
Australis Bright Nail Colour in Acid Rain* | Maybelline Mega Plush Volum' Express Mascara | Macadamia Natural Oil Luxurious Oil Treatment 
There's something about the Australis Bright Nail Colour in Acid Rain that makes me really love it. Even though it's definitely a non-Sophie colour, I really love it. I don't wear it often but, when I do, I absolutely love it. I was on the fence about whether I could include the Maybelline Mega Plush in this post because the turquoise colour doesn't quite fit anywhere so I decided to put it here. Why did I desperately want to include it? Because I love this mascara. It's definitely not over hyped. Whilst I'm not actually using the Macadamia Natural Oil Luxurious Oil Treatment anymore, I liked it while I did.
Benefit The POREfessional Pro Balm | Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Pacific Blue | Sally Hansen Miracle Cure Strengthener | NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Abbey Road
I love Benefit's The POREfessional. There's nothing else I can really say about this product without raving for hours. Pacific BLue is the most beautiful nail polish. To see this colour, check out this nail of the day post. I think the Sally Hansen Miracle Cure Strengthener has really improved the condition of my nails. I think this is my third of fourth bottle of it. I picked up NARS' Abbey Road eyeliner to wear as a pop of colour. It's a fantastic turquoise eyeliner that I think would suit a lot of eye colours.

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara
If you read my review of the Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Mascara you'll know I absolutely love it. This mascara is such a dream to use and I recommend anyone who can pick it up does! To find out why I love it so much, check out the review!
Clean and Clear Advantage Continuous Control Acne Cleanser | essence Colour & Go Hello Marshmallow*
Whilst there's a cocktail of products that has helped me clear up my skin, I think the Clean and Clear Advantage Continuous Control Acne Cleanser greatly helped. I don't really like purple, to be honest, but this essence Colour & Go Hello Marshmallow is a beautiful pale purple colour. Nail of the day, anyone?
Essence Mono Eyeshadow in #68 Strawberry Ice Cream | Soap & Glory Hand Food | MAC Creme Cup lipstick | MAC Pink Lemonade
Soap and Glory's Hand Food is my all time favourite hand cream. It moisturises so well and, of course, smells sooo good. I think the Essence Mono Eyeshadow in #68 Strawberry Ice Cream is a great dupe for one of my favourite eyeshadows, Urban Decay's Sin, and I often reach for it when I'm using other shades from my Essence palette. MAC makes some of my favourite lip products, including MAC Creme Cup lipstick and MAC Pink Lemonade. They're both absolutely beautiful.

Bobbi Brown Mini Brights Palette | SJP NYC Eau De Parfum 
The Bobbi Brown Mini Brights palette has been in my make up collection for sooo long yet I rarely pull it out. I don't often wear bright colours on my lids so I forget I own it but I need to start using it for pops of colours, don't you think? The SJP NYS perfume is absolutely beautiful. It was released after the first Sex and the City movie and I love wearing it!
