Tag: Top 10 Most Used Products

Ive seen a number of variations of this tag flying aroudn youtube and blogger so I thought I would give mine a go. However I have a thing about odd numbers (wierdo) so mine's gunna be 10 products, not 11 :) enjoy!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in 52 Vanilla
I cannot say enough good things about this foundation. It lasts ages, its not too thick and cakey, and it just makes your skin look healthy and glowing, but not shimmery or greasy. I would say its a medium coverage as it does give good coverage but doesnt look like youre covered in a foundation mask. Im hooked, and for me its my favourite foundation by miles.

Vaseline Lip Therapy in Cocoa Butter
This smells amazing and is a really good, thick lip balm. I apply this every night before I go to sleep and again in the mornings before I do my make-up and it leaves my lips feeling so soft, and it smells lush! Also its only £1.09 so its a steal.

Benefit Powder Time Lover
This is one of my most loved Christmas presents from this year. I had never had any Benefit boxed powders but I was dying to try them. My mam cam eup trumps with this in my stocking! They are of course all amazing quality and although theyre small I think these are going to last me ages. I use either Dallas or Coralista most days, and occasionally use Dandelion as an all over face powder, but as you'll see I have other favourites for that. Dallas is by a million miles my favourite blush these days, which I was shocked at as I though I would favour Coralista, which is also nice, but Dallas is perfect for my skintone.

Avon Supershock Mascara
You can tell I use this often because of the back-up Ive got there still in its plastic packaging. I couldnt be without this mascara. I use it every single day, its great for building volume and length in one, and Im a fan of big chunky plastic brushes which this provides. Two layers give my desired everyday effect. I apply Eyekos Big Eyes afterward for more dramatic eyes, but for everyday I always go to this, and have for years.

Avon Supershock Gel Liner Pencil
Not quite sure of the name of this, it sounds a little confusing. But basically it comes of fliek gel liner, but its in a pencil. Seriously the best liner Ive ever had and I use it every day, all my others lie unused in my drawer. Its soooo creamy and a true black, you dont need to tug at your eyes and its not sharp or scratchy in the slightest. Also it lasts ages in the waterline, a good few hours longer than your average pencil liner. Loooove it, I feared running out so Ive got my back-up ready, and I NEVER buy back-ups, which shows just how much I feel I need my Supershock products.

Barry M Nail Paint in Raspberry
This has been my favourite winter colour for my nails. Even the sun coming out and it nearly being springtime hasnt converted me to brights as I always turn to this. I think I coudl get away with it in summer, but Im gunna have to give it a rest and give my pastels and brights a go. I feel the raspberry tone of it compliments my skin tone well, and is a good alternative to a true red. Plus it stays on forever, I just love Barry M polishes, and this colour in particular.

MAC Eyeshadow in All That Glitters
 I found it difficult choosing a MAC shadow as I love my other shades too, but I do use this colour the most. I use this most days all over my eye, whether it be on its own or with another colour in the crease, but this one shade always seems to be my all over lid colour recently. Its just gorgeous and looks like it does in the photo on the eye, looove it!

MAC Mineralise Skinfinish in By Candlelight
This was my first ever purchase form MAC, along with Viva Glam Gaga, and I still love it as much as the first time I used it. I use it to highlight most days, but Im slightly worried about it running out as its limited edition, hmm  :(

MAC MSF Natural in Medium
This is jsut a perfect setting powder for my foundation, you could actually apply loads of this stuff and you wouldnt look powdery at all. I love it, and it provides jsut a teeny amount of coverage enough for those days where I dont feel liek wearing full make-up but dont want to look bare. Well worth the pennies.

ELF Complexion Perfection
I bought this totaly on a whim just to see if it actually did anything. I wouldnt say it actually gave a perfect complexion, but come on, what does. It comes out as a pale powder, and at the minute Im really pale compared to my foundation, so I've been using this as a kind of white powder to lighten my face up so it matches the rest of me. Sounds ridiculous but it really works. As you can see I use it a lot.

Thats my 10 most used products :) feels good doing a proper post again
