I thought it was about time i did my “Forever Repurchased Products” as like everyone i have those products i will never stop buying unless they are discontinued and even then i would buy them in bulk before that happened! So lets begin with that base…
Primer: Rimmel Stay Matte Primer | £5.99
This is the Queen of all primers! Having oily skin i struggle to find primers that do everything i want them to. I will try any product that has the term “matte” in it and when i first purchased the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer i honestly didn’t expect it to do much but boy was i wrong. It has a moisturiser like texture which sinks into the skin beautifully leaving a smoothed out finish to apply foundation. This is the best primer at keeping me matte all day long! I would recommend this more than high end primers.
Foundation: Seventeen Stay Time Foundation | £6.49
If you love a full coverage base this one is for you! This foundation is my holy grail especially in the winter or for special occasions. It is 100% full coverage without being cakey or heavy. It blends really well and doesn’t need building up. The bottle itself i love as it comes with a pump and a twist cap. Seventeen is a underrated brand for me and they have so many amazing products.
Concealer: MAC Pro Longwear Concealer | £17.50
Can you hear those angels sing? Because this product is just heaven in a bottle for me! This again is full coverage without being heavy, a little goes a long way. I find one bottle of this can last me around 3 months used everyday. I will be doing a full review of this product along with the MAC Pro Longwear Foundation
Powder: MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation | £22.00
If you are a regular reader you will have seen my mention this beauty a thousand times. As it says in the title it can be used as a powder or foundation. I love using this as a powder over foundation to give that little extra coverage and it really gives my skin that flawless look. If applied with a powder brush it gives just enough coverage or if you want to use it as foundation use a sponge. I love applying this over BB Cream or a lighter coverage foundation.
Powder #2: Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Powder | £12.00
I use the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation to set my makeup and then keep the Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot in my handbag for touch ups during the day. I usually touch up once in the afternoon and this S&G powder helps to reduce shine & keep shine away. It is the best i have ever tried for combating oily skin. If you buy one product this summer i would recommend this by far!
Moving onto the Eyes…
Mascara #1: L’Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara | £10.99
I have very badly damaged lashes from wearing false lashes everyday for many years. My lashes are very short and need alot of help. I apply two mascara’s as i find this gives me the best result. The first mascara i apply is this, the L’Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara. It has a thin spiky wand (as shown above) which creates amazing length.
Mascara #2: Seventeen Va Va Voom Mascara | £6.29
After applying the L’Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara my lashes are now long but need more volume and this is where the Seventeen Va Va Voom Mascara comes in. It has a thick wand the opposite to the L’Oreal one and it creates the perfect amount of volume. These two mascara’s create the perfect duo.
Do you use any of these products or do you feel tempted to try any?
