I won’t forget the day I put my make up bag in Debenhams toilet by the hand basin, only to touch up my lippy and concealer, and walked out and totally forgot to pick it up. Went back and it was gone…jammy sods. I reckon there was about 70 pounds worth and there was a lot of makeup in the bag…we are going back maybe 8 years ago. I was gutted. Now I only take these essentials out if needed from this beautiful makeup bag. Which if I may add, was from Primark for a fiver. Yes, 5 pounds. it looks much more expensive I think.
Ok, so I will take it from left to right in the picture above
REVOLUTION FOUNDATION STICK
At the moment I have been using this foundation stick which I think is really good for your purse it’s one of the cheapest you can find in Superdrug at £5 they come in a range of shades and you really don’t need to plaster yourself in it as it gives great coverage.
I will be doing a foundation post in a few weeks and this one will be featured in it too so keep your eyes peeled
BENEFIT HIGH BEAM HIGHLIGHTER
Not one to go super silly with a gurt shiny face I chose a mini from the Benefit website, just to try it out. It comes with a tiny brush type applicator which is great because you can apply and much or as little as you like. It’s perfect…and it’ll fit in any size bag no matter how small it is. This was £10.50 and I believe the full-size one is £22.
CLINIQUE CHUBBY STICK
There are days when I really don’t want to draw attention to my lips and that’s when the chubby stick comes in handy. Just adding a little bit of colour and moisture to them. Clinique are selling these at £11.99 for 1 and £35.00 for a trio. In my outlet store, the trio was £24.99. I didn’t pay it was a gift from my Mum. This pink shade is called Woppin Watermelon. I always love it when a lippy has a funky name to it.
REVOLUTION CONCEAL AND DEFINE
I am always on the lookout for a concealer that is going to hide my dark circles and cover up any blemishes and redness on my face. For a small price of £4 I really am impressed with it, I got the palest shade possible which I think is C1 and seems to be the popular shade as its always in and out of stock. The only disappointment is that it ran out too quickly for my liking. I’ll go a bit more gingerly with it next time. This is exclusive to Superdrug or the Revolution website.
BENEFIT HOOLA BRONZER
If you are a makeup fan you will definitely heard of Hoola by Benefit. Used with the correct brushes you can use it for either bronzing your whole face or contouring your cheeks etc. At the moment I am sweeping a bit of it all over my face as I am gradually getting a tan on my body so my face really needs to match. A mini Hoola retails at £10.63 and a full size is £20.83. as I don’t go too heavy on my make up the mini is ample enough for me.
MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL WATERPROOF MASCARA
This is one thing I do shop about to try and find the one that gives my lashes the desired effect, I am always being commented on my eye colour (green) so I figure that’s my best feature and to make the best of it, so I like framing them with this lovely mascara. It doesn’t clump the lashes which is always an added bonus. I picked the waterproof one because i am either crying with laughter, crying at something sad on the tv or my eyes are watering from the sun. At £8.99 I think it beats some of the more expensive ones out there I have tried. in the past.
Its always best to nosey around and see what you can get for the best price and think do you really need the big one or could you do with a mini.
There you have it my 6favourites make up products that I use at the moment, as you know with new ranges being brought out all the time this could all change in the months to come but for now, I am loving these.
Do you have a favourite product you can’t go anywhere without?
