TEN brands I haven't tried!

As a Beauty Blogger I have been lucky enough to work with some incredible brands, try some amazing products and as well as getting exclusive and insider information into my inbox on a weekly basis there is still a whole host of products which fill my social media channels and feed, from brands, who I have never tried and I thought I would share them with you.

Oh and I don't own a single Naked Palette!

Not in the Bag

There is no specific reason as to why I haven't tried them, sometimes it is because they are over-hyped and everyone has them and other times because I am so indecisive, I just never get around to giving them a try.

Anastasia Beverly Hills - One name known to most Beauty Bloggers is quite possibly Anastasia Soare aka ABH. Products such as the Dipbrow Pomade, Modern Renaissance Palette and the most recent Aurora Glow Kit have adorned my feed constantly.

Becca - Again the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Champagne Pop or the Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette. Both on my timeline constantly but neither of them has graced this face of mine!

Chantecallie a brand I can barely pronounce but again one I am seeing everywhere right now and as well as being luxurious and expensive, as a brand I don't know much about it and yet it is so pretty I just want to try it all, especially the perfecting bronze powder and the vital essence!

Hourglass - I know many are already shocked by this fact owing to my obsession with the Lip Stylo's but not a single item is in my stash and the reason for that is I just want to try so many things that I can't decide where to start. It is a brand I want to trolley dash in Liberty and have one of everything!

Jouer Cosmetics - As with Hourglass, there is so much I want to try but I don't know where to begin and more so, I am not the biggest fan of buying a brand that I haven't swatched in a department store on my hand, online. But it just calls my name!

Kevyn Aucoin - There are two products from Kevyn Aucoin which grab my attention every time someone features them on their blog - The Celestial Bronzing Veil or The Neo Limelight which look and sound incredible and I am yet to find a review that doesn't like them and those reviews are the ones I sometimes like to read before making a purchasing decision, odd though that might sound!

Laura Mercier - A good blogger friend of mine is obsessed with both the Almond Coconut Milk Honey Bath or with pretty much the whole Make up range especially the Foundation Primer-Blemish-Less which both sound incredible.

Morphe - For this, I have Gemma over at Gemmaetc (formerly MissMakeupMagpie) to blame. Until she started posting incredible photos on Morphe palettes on her Instagram and blog, I was blissfully unaware of how amazing this brand looks and I am now already wanting the Morphe 35OS Shimmer Nature Glow Eye Shadow Palette and I did promise myself that I wouldn't buy any more until I had used a few up!

Nyx - As a highstreet brand, this is one I could go and easily play about with, but my local Boots store need to sort the testers out and clean the stand, it is vile.  That aside, Lip Lingerie is the product I see on my timeline the most and I love the different shades available!

Tarte Cosmetics - At least once a month my timeline has a special offer, known as a TSV (Todays Special Value) from QVC and I am yet to snap one up. Rainforest of the Sea is quite possibly one of the most loved collections that blogger friends rave about along with 

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara which I do, as a mascara fiend, really want to try!

So there you have ten brands and a whole host of products which bloggers on my social media feed love and adore and yet I remain in the dark.  I would love to know which product you would recommend from which brand and why!

  1. I haven't tried all but Laura Mercier and NYX too, and I have only tried a couple of LM products but their tinted moisturiser is lovely, it's more a light coverage foundation but it is really nice, the eyeshadows are lovely too. From NYX I have tried quite a few things, I like their whitening foundation drops and liquid suede liquid lipsticks, the soft matte lip creams are nice but for me the liquid suede last longer :) great post and reminded me there are so many things I want to try xxx

  2. There's a few brands I haven't tried too. I've only tried one thing from nyx but I don't have a nyx stand in my boots which is so annoying. Jouer and Laura nervier is a great brand. I really recommend the lip cremes, the skinny dip lip topper and Rose Quartz Highlighter. They're wonderful x

  3. I haven't tried any Tarte or Chantecaille but I really want to!! I must say, I do have the becca x Chrissy palette and it's amazing 🙌

  4. Intersting post and I CAN'T BELIEVE you haven't tried hourglass or Becca yet! I am yet to try Jouer and tarte also, although I bought that 4-in-1 mascara in America in October and still haven't bloody used it - this reminds me!!!! x

  5. I really want to try Jouer, Ofra and Huda Beauty. You should definitely snap up a cheeky Tarte offer at QVC. My favourite product of theirs has to be Shape Tape.

  6. Such a great post I am a huge Tarte and Becca queen have way too much but I have not yet tried hour glass...for my sins lol

  7. I haven't tried Morphe or Jouer either but that needs to change! xx


  8. I adore the Jouer Lip Creams! I also love the ABH Liquid Lipsticks too.

  9. I love Tarte and NYX products!! x

  10. I have all the brands except Morphe which doesn't appeal to me.

  11. They only brand I have tried here is NYX, and I haven't tried a bad thing yet. Their micro eyebrow pencil is amazing, they only thing I use to fill my eyebrows in. I really want to get the Jaclyn Hill's Morphe palette, it looks stunning xx

  12. I'm the same other than becca & hourglass! I really want to try the r at but some can be hard to get!

  13. I am so surprised by these picks. I haven't tried some of them but Becca and Laura Mercier are two of my fave brands xx

  14. Great post - there are so many incredible beauty brands now that it feels like an impossible task to try them all. I haven't tried anything from Kevyn Aucoin, Morphe or Hourglass. I thought I was the only beauty blogger on the planet not to have tried Hourglass so it is nice to hear that I am not alone.

  15. Ok we need to go shopping any buy all the becca!!!

  16. I've not tried most of these either! I would love to try some of the nyx products though as they are really affordable and have such a good range x

  17. Omg I can't believe you haven't tried some of these! Tarte, Becca and Hourglass are SO good!
