My Most Used Makeup Products

 There is nothing I love more than photographing brand new lipsticks or palettes, but... today I want to talk about my most used and well loved makeup products. The ones I either used up, repurchased, hit the pan on or simply used every single day since I got them . Are you ready for some recommendations?

 I simply can't live without the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19). It is fantastic and super cheap. You NEED it in your life and you won't regret buying it. It is probably my most repurchased makeup product.

I also love using the Bourjois Happy Light Concealer (£8.99) on dry areas that need coverage and the Healthy Mix Concealer (£7.99) when my skin is more on the oily side. I included all of these, because they have all been repurchased, which means one thing - LOVE!

Another product I am addicted to for adding extra coverage is the Rachel K CC Pressed Powder/Foundation* (£25.95).  It is perfect for setting my base and concealing any scarring etc. As you can see, I hit pan on it. If you have acne or acne scarring, you will love it.

I thought that I won't need a new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (£56.00) anytime soon, but... I just hit pan on the middle shade. Whaaaat? I am devastated. It's hard to see, because the base is almost the same colour as the powder, but yes... I hit pan on the left side of the middle shade and I think I have to start using the other shades more. Anyway... I am still obsessed with this palette and I use it to set all makeup looks and add radiance and luminosity to my complexion. It is a pricey palette, but worth every penny!

 I have been repurchasing Vichy Dermablend (£14.45) for over 7 years and it is still my number 1 foundation. If all my makeup disappeared, it would be my first purchase. It covers EVERYTHING and it gives a relatively natural finish. I can't recommend it enough for those who want a flawless finish and full coverage. 

When I want something lighter, I go for the Ginvera BB Cream (£17.95). It gives surprisingly good coverage, adapts to most skintones and looks very, very natural on the skin. I just finished my second tube and I already miss it! I will probably buy it soon :)

 The Lancome Color Fever Lipstick in shade 312 (£21.00) is actually the lip colour I wore on my wedding day and I will treasure it forever :) I use it on special occasions and I will probably end up buying a new one, if I can find it. It seems to be sold out everywhere. It is stunning! Lancome lipsticks are amazing!

You probably already know how much I love the Bourjois Liner Pinceau Liquid Liner in Black (£6.99). I talk about it all the time and it is my Holy Grail product. It is the best liner in the world in my opinion and I have been repurchasing it for years. Easy to apply, long lasting and ultra black. Perfect!

My most used eye pencil is the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil in shade Zero (£13.25). It is creamy, easy to apply and it does not budge! I also adore the new shade Perversion, which is the blackest black! The best eye pencils on the market.

Another Urban Decay favourite is their Sellout Eyeshadow (£15.00). I depotted it and I keep it in my Z-Palette and it is my most used inner corner and highlight shade. I have it in the Book Of Shadows 2 as well and it is almost finished... Oooops. It is my most used eyeshadow ever. You know, when you have a palette and you always end up using up the lighter shade first? Buy this one full size and you're sorted :) 

My favourite and most used brow product is the Anastasia Brow Wiz in shade Brunette (£15.50). Yes, it's pricey, but... it is the most natural looking brow product for me. The nib is super fine and you can draw very precise, hair-like strokes with it. 

The last item I want to mention is MAC Fanfare Lipstick. (£15.00). My first one was a giveawy prize and I picked the shade myself, but I used it up really quickly and I just had to buy a new one. It is a perfect everyday pink, that can be worn all year round and suits all skintones. If there is one MAC lippie you need, it is this one. 


I hope you enjoyed this post. let me know what is your most used makeup product? Is there anything you keep repurchasing?
