To be honest, I think almost my entire makeup collection has been recommended to me (or new). However, these are products that blogger after blogger have recommended and I’ve bought because I just needed to know if they were any good. And I have to say, I love basically all of them.
Mac Eyeshadows – I’d always avoided these because of how unbelievably expensive they were. But I needed some unusual shades for some events over Summer and Kevin bought me the four brown shades. And, while I have to say I do actually get a fair amount of use out of this palette, it really isn’t worth the hype, or the price. But, I still use it…
Maybelline Lash Sensational – This is actually an incredible mascara. I sort of hate it for the first week or so, and then when it dries down a bit, it becomes a beautiful mascara that does a bit of everything!
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder – This is such an iconic powder. I have to say I really do love the formula, however I think the packaging sucks, it breaks so quickly.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer – I only have a mini of this, however it’s become a staple in my collection. While it’s expensive, bronzers last forever, so it’s not bad. The colour is beautiful, the pigmentation is just right, and it blends so well.
Body Shop Bronzer – This was raved about years ago when I first started watching YouTube, but thats from where I first really wanted it. It’s actually the perfect bronzer for those of us with pale skin, and it’s the only bronzer that I’ve ever put a big dent in. This is my all time favourite.
MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter – Such an affordable highlighter, and a very in your face highlighter, and maybe a little glittery. But still one of my all time favourites!
Mac Lipsticks – I actually used to think these were so expensive, however for £15.50 they’re not really that more than brands like Max Factor. And these are my most used, and most loved lipsticks. I think they are purely stunning!
Rimmel Exaggerate Lipliner in East End Snob – OMG the rave around this colour was real. While it’s quite drying, and you go through it surprisingly quickly, it’s a stunning colour and if you want your lipstick to last, this is the one!
NYX Lip Creams – When they launched in Boots, NYX went absolutely bat s**t crazy. I really do like them, they’re sweet smelling, beautiful and look amazing on the lips.
Rimmel 107 – An iconic colour, a wonderful formlula, awesome packaging, great lasting power. I love all these lipsticks, especially this one.
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine – To be honest I really don’t like these. While they look beautiful on the lips and are really comfortable, they smell so strongly of water melon (a smell I don’t like) that I find them difficult to wear, which is a shame.
