This post has got me all excited because I the products I’m going to be mentioning are products that I’ve really grown to love over the years!
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder – £3.99
This was the very first powder that I ever bought, I’ve tried a few other high street powders but I always revert back to this, I use shade 001 translucent but I have also used shade 003 peach glow. It’s long lasting and very affordable at just £4!
This Blush was pretty much the first blush that I owned, it’s not a shade I regularly go to anymore but I do like the colour and I used to wear it whenever I wore makeup when I was at school. I LOVED it. I’ve hit pan on it and I’m not sure if I would repurchase it because I have so many nicer blushes now, but it’s super affordable and great for anyone starting out with makeup.
L’Oreal True Match Foundation – £9.99
I began using this around 4 years ago and it soon became my go to foundation, I wore it every day and the coverage was amazing. However they changed the packaging a couple of years ago and swear the formula changed as I had problems with it being really drying. I began using it again about a year ago and as long as I mix it with another foundation, I get great coverage and it’s not as drying anymore. They have a massive selection of colours for different skin tones and undertones which is really helpful, especially for a high street foundation!
A product I’ve been using for about 3-4 years. This concealer has amazing coverage and the lightest shade is brilliant for under my eyes. It’s great for covering blemishes but it doesn’t have the best colour range so I end up having to use the concealer first on any blemishes and foundation over the top so the area isn’t highlighted.
This gel eyeliner is a staple in my every day makeup! I literally use it every day and have repurchased it so many times that I have completely lost count, the eyeliner is very ‘black’ which is amazing, I hate black eyeliners that come out more grey, it lasts all day, it doesn’t flake off like many eyeliners that I’ve tried and it comes with its own little brush which I use to apply because it’s so easy to work with.
Maybelline mascaras-Various prices
I’m not going to pin point just one mascara because I have tried and tested multiple Maybelline mascaras and there’s only been one which I’ve not fallen in love with, I wrote a review here. Some that I’ve previously bought and enjoyed are The Falsies, and Colossal Cat eyes, my favourite at the moment is the famous Lash Sensational. I highly recommend trying out amazon for Maybelline mascaras, they are usually a lot cheaper than in store!
Benefit They’re real mascara – £20.50
Real Techniques Brushes – Various prices
I jumped straight on the bandwagon when I was 17 and treated myself to a core collection kit. I absolutely adored this set and I used the hell out of that poor buffing brush. My collection soon grew rapidly and one brush that I really enjoy using is the blush brush, it’s a great shape for bronzing too!
So there’s the products I’ve been using the longest, what’s been a staple in your makeup bag since the beginning?
