This blog post is all about my makeup products that I could not live without; (pictured below)
1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in 'Sundipped'
2. NYX highlight and contour pro palette
I've always been a fan of NYX, and again this palette was gifted to me as a birthday present by my friend. Ever since I got this I've been obsessed! There are a range of warm and cool contour shades in the palette which is great for all skin tones. The highlight shades I'm not the biggest fan of because I don't like the shades. However, I do use the highlight shades for under eye baking and generally as a powder to set my foundation and concealer. I also think that this palette is fairly priced for what you get, as there are a wide variety of shades.
3. Maybelline lash sensational mascara
Next up is this fab mascara which for its price you can't get better than that. The lash sensational elongates the lashes but I also think the lashes appear more volumised aswell which is essentially a two in one and the wand makes it easy to apply to the lashes. You can buy this mascara in a range of colours and it also comes in waterproof which could come in handy if you're going to a waterpark or if you live in rainy England!
4. Maybelline master brow pro palette in 'Soft brown'
The first thing I need to say about this brow product is how long it lasts! I bought this product in November 2015 and it's now August 2017 and it's still showing no signs of hitting pan. I only use the powder because I find the wax very hard to apply as I find it doesn't blend. The powder is amazing, really easy to blend, and you can build up the darkness. The highlight in this palette is great to use as a primer for your eyelids before applying eyeshadow. Also, the palette comes in a variety of shades and I use the shade 'soft brown'. After using this product for so long I'm sceptical about changing to another brow product! I really do recommend you guys try this out!
5. Kat Von D Shade and light Eye Contour Palette
I feel like this is very repetitive but, this palette was gifted to me as a birthday present and it is PHENOMENAL! The range of shades is great and the pigmentation is fab. The three base shades featured at the top of the palette are easy to wear and especially the first three shades are go to neutral shades for any occasion. I want to try out more Kat Von D products in the future especially the face contour palette which i've heard good things about.
6. Rimmel London lasting finish 25 hour foundation- Ivory
I've always used either Rimmel or Maybelline foundation because I was scared to step out of the comfort zone, and I think I will be repurchasing this again as it is so reliable. It is the perfect colour, its full coverage, and it also blends really easily. It's very well priced and this foundation lasts me about 5 months however I only used to wear it on weekends and whenever I was off school. The foundation has a pump so this is easier to apply and lasts a long time, I find it to be quite dewy on my skin but where I tend to go oily, I always apply powder to mattify my skin anyway.
7. Collection lasting perfection concealer- Fair
If you've ever tried this concealer once, you'll know why I can't live without it. It's insanely cheap and works wonders. I use this to cover up blemishes, spots and under eye dark circles and it's like they weren't even there in the first place. I've repurchased this concealer about 5 or 6 times now, and this definitely won't be the last! This concealer is actually on offer for £3.99 at boots stores so be quick and go and grab it while it's still on offer.
8. MUA Luxe Velvet lip laquer- Tranquility
I cannot tell you how much I adore this product and up until now when I came to research the this product I didn't know it was £3.00! I am amazed! The shade I have is an orange, coral shade with nude undertones and once you apply this it won't smudge and stays on for a long time. I also noticed on the superdrug website they had grey, blue and deep purple shades which looked very interesting. The packaging looks tasteful and expensive, and very soon I will be taking a trip to my local superdrug and purchasing a few more of these liquid lipsticks. I mean, who wouldn't at that price?!
